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

Glad to hear your stay was comfortable and enjoyable. The rack rate on your room is $299.00 per night. The discount on your room was better than a military discount which is only 10%, your discount was closer to 30%. We don`t combine discounts and it states this very clearly on our website. So we took ($100.00 off Per Night... More

Our 2 night stay was very relaxing and the scenery was amazing and the breakfast was so delicious both mornings. The staff was very friendly and helpful in giving directions to local restaurants and places to go. Expect to see the awesome deer that come almost to the entry door, they love to graze from the beautiful grounds and drink... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Bella Vista. The property is beautiful, well manicured and private. We stayed in the Rio Vista Room downstairs. 2 bedrooms, 1 bath with a little kitchionette. Nice space with a fireplace. We loved having direct access to the patio and pool area. Beautiful views outside our windows! We did notice noise from the street.... More

Kathleen is a phenomenal hostess and the property is wonderful. The addition of the pool with slide and jacuzzi is great and Kathleen's breakfasts are fantastic. She went above and beyond to make our birthday celebration special and our stay very comfortable.

Our hostess was one of the most pleasant individuals we have had occasion to meet at a b&b. And genuinely so. And she made us French toast stuffed with cream cheese, smothered with fresh strawberries and blueberries, topped with whipped cream. A wide variety of higher quality coffee pods available any time. A large comfortable bed. A large bathroom built... More

Hello, Words can hardly express how grateful we are to receive this glowing review! A B&B is nothing without a phenomenal breakfast, and it’s such a delight to hear my stuffed French toast was so memorable. Your thoughtful remarks are sincerely appreciated, and you both are welcome back any time! More
