Making a Bella Vista Lodge Reservation
 

To begin, please confirm available dates by viewing the availability calendar and reviewing rates. You will then contact us to place your reservation. Within 24 hours, you will receive a phone call to confirm your reservation. You will be instructed to send a security/reservation deposit of $250 within 48-72 hours. The security deposit, which is refundable after departure, holds the dates you have requested; once received, we will block out your requested dates. Blocked dates are completed on a first-come, first-served basis. Under no circumstances will any dates be reserved without a confirmed security deposit payment. You will later receive a second invoice for the total rental cost of your stay. In addition to the rental charge, a set cleaning fee along with state/local sales tax will be added. This invoice will be due at least 30 days prior to arrival at the Bella Vista Lodge. You may make your payment via mail or via PayPal. Reservations made within 30 days of arrival are due immediately. For those who prefer to mail the immediate payment, you may submit the payment via overnight mail, Fed ex, UPS, etc. with a MONEY ORDER, PERSONAL CHECK OR CASH. Once payment has been made in full, you will receive driving directions along with key code access within 7 days of your arrival date. All personal checks must clear before directions to the cabin or entry key codes will be given out.

You will also be sent a copy of rental agreement via e-mail to be reviewed, signed and returned with your final payment. When returning the signed agreement and payment, you must provide a copy of your DRIVER'S LICENSE with a clear picture. Failure to send both the signed agreement along with a copy of your driver's license will void your reservation. You may review and print a copy of the Bella Vista Lodge Cabin Rental Agreement from this web site.
