“Total comfort and pampering”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

My husband and adult son and I stayed at the Bella Vista for two nights over the Memorial Day weekend. Within easy reach of Berkeley, this equisite B&B was a wonderful location to have a relaxing getaway. The property is magnificent and well kept and has an absolutely breathtaking view of the valley. We were welcomed warmly by the owners. We occupied the Rio Vista Suite which opens onto the sandy "beach" area at the back of the property. The suite was spacious and comfortable and the addition of a small stocked kitchenette was welcome. The breakfasts were unusually good, our hosts attentive and considerate, and the beds very comfortable. The Bella Vista is within easy reach of rafting on the American river which my husband and son enjoyed while I spent the day sitting outside (alternating sun and shade) enjoying the perfect weather and view. A number of surprisingly good choices for dinner are within easy reach.

I think it is imporant to emphasize that while many of the reviews of the Bella Vista are from couples and wedding partries, our 22 year old son found the place comfortable and pleasant and enjoyed the food. As a family, the space and privacy the Bella Vista offers are very welcome.

This was our second visit to the Sierra Foothills wine country in three months, the previous time we stayed in Lodi but this time wanted something closer. We had not tried a 'bed and breakfast' option previously in the US so were not quite sure what to expect.

We stayed two nights and had a wonderful time. The decoration of the rooms and the lounge was very nice and of course the tranquil manicured grounds, with breathtaking views were lovely. The star filled night sky was a wonder to behold!

We were made to feel very welcome by the hostess including a recommendation to a wonderful restaurant nearby. Our breakfast on the patio of our room the final morning convinced us that we would return again very soon.

Three friends stayed here before and after a challenging bike ride. The room was very comfortable, the view soothing, the breakfast great, and our hostess made everything work easily. I would love to go back for a less strenuous trip someday!

My newly wed wife and I stayed here the first night of our honeymoon. Bob helped us get checked in (Which was late because of the reception) and the room was amazing!

The Monte Vista room is perfect for anyone looking for a little privacy (And could fit a family). It has its own entrance from the outside and is upstairs so you don't have to worry about anyone seeing in the beautiful window/doors.

The view in the morning was perfect, sitting by the pool in the sand was super relaxing. Then Kathleen made an AMAZING breakfast for us!

Definitely recommend, I and my wife will stay again. Thanks Bob and Kathleen.

Room Tip: Monte Vista for privacy/space

I stayed in the front bedroom with French doors to outside balcony which overlooked
lavender filled garden. Really great for one (especially a woman) who needs to get away from it all. Large bed in alcove -electric fireplace, writing desk with window that also has great view.
AND THE SERVICE and FOOD, what can I say. Kathleen, the owner, is an excellent cook and
hostess. B&B is listed as Placerville, but really outside Coloma, which has Sutter's Mill,
American River, kayaking, -wonderful, wonderful

Room Tip: B& B has several rooms, all with private balcony or patio.

This is the most beautiful Bed and Breakfast I have ever been to. Each room has a private balcony each with its own beautiful view. The rooms are decorated incredibly well and breakfast was Delicious. You can eat breakfast in the dining room or in your room. I had mine on the balcony.The Ash's are extraordinary people and I will be back for my next R&R break.

Bob & Kathleen were perfect hosts. They were close enough to meet any requirement or need of ours, but far enough away to provide us the privacy we were looking for in a B & B. Our favorite morning breakfast was stuffed French toast with fresh berries. We stayed in the Bella Vista room with beautiful panoramic views of the American River and Coloma Valley. The grounds were stunning and ever so peaceful. We visited the David Girard Winery just down the street and strolled through old town Coloma where Gold was first discovered in California. There were plenty of nice walking trails along the river too. We had a wonderful weekend!
