Never in a million years did my husband and I think we could own a home in such a beautiful area. 4 years ago, on a whim, we drove down from the Chicago area to visit relatives here in Bella Vista. We came here in early September. The scenery was so beautiful and wildlife (birds and fish) were so plentiful - we were very impressed with the area. So impressed, that we hired a realtor that weekend to find us a second home here. Luck was on our side, and we found a wonderful little house on Lake Avalon, and closed on the house in October. We just love "our" little lake! Fishing (all year!) and swimming in the lake are just two of the recreational activities we take part in. We have since moved here full time leaving the hustle and bustle - and winter - of the Northern Midwest behind. We still cannot believe how lucky we were to find out how lovely this area of the Ozarks is - and that we call it home.
