We just returned from a 5 night stay with friends at Villa Bella Messina. What a wonderful experience we had with the gracious hospitality of Jerry and Harold in their beautiful Villa with spectacular views of at least three famous valleys and amazing sunsets. Leave your tour guide book at home because Jerry is exceptionally knowledgeable of wines, wineries and... More

The property had great views, well maintained and extremely clean. Jerry and Harold could not have been better hosts, especially providing advice and directions to the wine country. My experience will be a lasting memory that will be hard to match.

This is a wonderful B&B experience with the amenities of a hotel. The hosts were wonderful and extraordinarily accommodating. The breakfasts were so good with a variety of special treats--lovely California fruits, special breads as well as home cooked selections. The rooms were spacious, well appointed and quiet at night for a good night's sleep. Jerry Messina, innkeeper extraordinaire, gives... More

My wife and I were the sole guests for three nights at the inn. Harold and jerry were wonderful hosts, with great breakfasts and wine tasting every night. We were upgraded to the asti room for no additional cost. While we enjoy B & B with a full house, our hosts gave us great recommendations on dining and winery visits.... More

The property was very nice, had great views. Jerry knew a lot about the area and had great suggestions on where to go for wineries, dinner etc. Having previously stayed at another B&B on the trip, I have to say that Bella Villa Messina did not live up to our expectations. Breakfasts were OK, good start for a day of... More

Jerry and Harold are quite accommodating of all guests in their hill-top perched mansion. It is a lovely residence fully outfitted to accommodate any B&B customer, breakfasts are over-the-top culinary affairs, and the evening wine and cheese ritual was a nice precursor to our dinners out...but the people are what really separates this place from the pack. These two gentlemen... More

Thank you to Harold and Jerry for setting the bar so high that no other B&B can ever compare!!! The service and hospitality is amazing! We felt welcome and more like family than first time visitors. The room was sparkling clean and the food was comparable to some of the best restaurants we have enjoyed. The helpful hints and happy... More

We just returned from our third stay at the beautiful BVM and, once again, Jerry and Harold made us feel like we were visiting family! The setting is gorgeous, perched atop a hill overlooking beautiful wine valleys, the rooms are elegant yet warm and cozy, and the experience is magical. And the magic is created by the way these two... More

We stayed in the French Room on the main floor of this elegant wine country inn. our hosts, Harold and Jerry, were warm and welcoming from the minute we walked in until we left after a two night stay. Jerry is a wonderful chef who presents guests with gourmet breakfasts and evening wine and cheese tastings. the key thing here... More

We had an excellent stay. The house and surroundings are absolutely beautiful. Harold and Jerry are very gracious hosts, and very knowledgeable. Excellent advice on wineries and restaurants. Jerry can get you a table anywhere in town. We will definitely be returning.
