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.
