We have been going to the Bella Vista since 2009 and it just gets better with each visit. The views overlooking the American River cannot be matched. Enjoying the natural rock spa and pool makes you want to live there; and of course innkeeper Kathleen Ash makes everything special, from the daily gourmet breakfasts to ensuring every detail and guest...

The Bella Vista was everything we could have hoped for and more. We were enchanted from the start. Beautiful grounds greet you as you pass through the gates, a sweeping drive and grand portico were just the beginning. Our room was decorated perfectly, it was both comforting and lush with a spectacular view of the valley and American River. Kathleen... More

I've stayed in some memorable places and the Bella Vista is up there with the best. Rooms have a great attention to detail and all have their own character. Kathleen and Bob, the owners, care about their business and it manifests itself in so many ways. Brilliant views, peaceful, and the breakfast is fantastic. They make you feel special here.

We stayed at the Bella Vista on our road trip. We were overwhelmed with how beautiful the house is with the most fantastic views. We were in the smallest room but didn't feel cheated as it was so comfortable. We chose to have our breakfast on the balcony and it was really tasty. The pool was an added bonus and... More

We enjoyed a three night stay at Bella Vista - it was wonderful. The breakfasts were delicious and filling. They offered alternatives, but we enjoyed Scrambled eggs with Cheese, Hash and Scones; Stuffed french toast with fruit and bacon; Frittata with yogurt, fruit and sausage. We enjoyed our breakfast in the dining area (you can take it to your room)... More

Bella Vista sits on a hill overlooking the Sutter's Mill gold discovery site, the town (and California State Park) of Coloma. It is a large, modern family home renovated into a B&B with the living room and dining room overlooking the Coloma Valley, about 20 minutes north of Placerville. We stayed in the Petite Syrah, a small bedroom facing the... More

Wife and I went up for Whitewater rafting & wine tasting and staying a Belle Vista made the weekend. The house is beautiful and the owner very friendly and then you add in a wonderful breakfast and views while sitting in the spa, well it couldn't have been better!

As soon as we drove onto the property we were amazed at all the romantic vignettes that were placed by the pond, fountain, and waterfalls. A beautiful place for romance. My husband and I were greeted warmly by the innkeeper and encouraged to ask for anything to make our stay the best. Our room was the Bella Vista Suite and... More

I love staying at Bella Vista. This time I stayed in the Petite Syrah---the smaller room with the balcony facing the front. It was beautifully decorated and so cozy. I go to this inn to recharge and as always, the nice walk around the grounds, sitting on the balcony relaxing with wine at night and coffee in the morning--so refreshing.... More
