Why Stop At Simple Pleasures?
We’re nestled in the Ozark Mountains in the town of Bella Vista, Arkansas. Our property is lush and green, just like the surrounding area. We’re just minutes from the nationally-famous Crysal Bridges Museum of American Art and the Museum of Native American History, both in nearby Bentonville. A stop at our venue goes well with a tour to the birthplace of Wal-Mart, Walton’s Five and Dime, a step back into a functional 1950’s storefront. And we’re not too far from the hustle and bustle of Branson, Missouri. So, after a full day of touring sites like these, bringing your group to Simple Pleasures will be relaxing and comfortable.
Simple Pleasures’ 1930’s art deco towering globes is the only hint at the dining and entertainment venue within. Guests dine among 1920-1970’s iconic autos, toys, neon advertising art, and more.
