Staying at La Bella Vista was like staying with a friend. Host and world-traveler Daissy Owen is charming, warm, and gracious and so is her lovely B&B. We had impeccably clean accomodations, in a quiet, spacious, well-appointed room and enjoyed visiting with our hostess as she shared photos and souvenirs of her trips to destinations such as Antartica, Africa, Southeast Asia and beyond. Breakfast was a gourmet's delight - be sure to ask for Daissy's Eggs Benediction -- what a treat! The accommodations are reasonably-priced, very close to cultural events, and easy to access in a nice neighborhood. A much better value than any of the hotels we've stayed in while in Iowa City.
