“Amazing Views, Superb Host!”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

I spent my birthday weekend at Bella VIsta, My only regret is that I only booked for one night because I had spent one night in Napa. I wanted to stay near Redhawk Casino and this was perfect just about 20 minutes away. The owner was expecting us and received us with a warm welcome. The room we stayed in was the Bella Vista, its amazing views were a huge surprise. The pictures in the website don't do it justice. You can see the mountains and the American River from your shower!!! Also beautiful tub in the room. The inn is very clean and tastefully decorated. The owner even had the fireplace going for us when we returned from the casino. She was very knowledgeable of the restaurants in the area and recommended Cafe Mahjaic in Lotus, CA just about 5 minutes from the inn, this was a total pleasant surprise. Delicious food and great service. On our check out day, we were served a delicious breakfast, actually the smell of the bacon and frittatta woke us up, (pleasantly) and we went to the dining room to enjoy it. We were the only ones at the inn so I don't know if that made it so much better, but really I want to move in that place! I am making plans now for a spring break stay with my entire family. Just amazing!

Our stay at Bella Vista was an enjoyable experience. The home was beautiful and the food excellent. Kathleen was very hospitable. She made us feel welcome and comfortable right away. I would recommend this B&B as a #1 place to stay in Placerville.

I've never posted before, but I must. The owners were so nice, the food excellent, the view most memorable for its location that affords a view that must have been seen by the gold miners themselves from 1848, when gold was discovered there a stone's throw away in the American River which the B & B overlooks, by James Marshall himself within the confines and protection of the CA State Parks, "James Marshall Coloma Gold Discovery Site" located a half a mile from this easy to reach but secluded B & B property. Remodeled rooms on a classic California property evoke the state at every corner and afford families or couples both rest and relaxation in these lore-filled foothills of California's "Strike It Rich" counties.

Room Tip: Tbe rooms facing the American River are lovely and provide a quiet, reflective opportunity to ponder...

We were given a gift card for one night stay and we added a second night. We were so glad we did. We were greeted by the owner, Kathleen. She was truly there to make our stay wonderful. We stayed in the Bella Vista room. It was spacious and lavish. The bed was very comfortable. We hope we can go back in late spring. That is when it is the most beautiful in the area. We enjoyed the local wine tasting, history and restaurants. We liked that the Inn was a out in the country. We needed to get away badly. However it is not too far from Placerville, CA , which has a charm of its own. This would be a lovely wedding and reception site. If you are planning to whitewater raft on the American River this would make your experience fantastic.

This was a too-brief overnight stay that should have lasted at least another night. The Inn is above the small valley around Coloma and the pool is a great place to spend a warm afternoon. Stately, nicely-appointed rooms. A great place to stay and only a few miles outside of Placerville, yet a world away. You'll feel like you really traveled far to get here.

My husband and I stayed at the Bella Vista Bed & Breakfast during our trip to gold country. We loved the beach and pool and could have easily stayed poolside for 1/2 a day! The view is also outstanding. This is a great accommodation in Coloma - likely the best- and a convenient stopping point after whitewater rafting.

That said, we were not left with many details about how to check out, were there pool towels, who to contact in an emergency, etc. A welcome letter or a binder in the room with the details would have been most helpful.

We'll be back!

So glad you enjoyed our property and pool. We do actually have an amenities book that is currently being updated and will be available again soon. We do keep the pool towels on the Innkeepers side but will locate them closer to the pool from now on. The emergency contact # will be in the updated amenities book along with other important information. Thank you so much for your feedback as we`re always striving to better serve you here at Bella Vista !

We stayed just one night last week the night before a white water rafting trip. We regretted that we had not booked the room for 2 nights, as we fell in love with the area. We had a wonderful stay. The property and view was amazing. We had an upstairs queen room with our own private balcony overlooking the pretty pool and hot tub. The bed was comfy and the room was quiet. There was a window air cond unit, which we needed as it was quite warm that day. We had a continental breakfast in place of the typical hot breakfast due to having to check out so early the next day. Our only complaint was not being offered any coffee or anything else upon check-in, and the bathroom lacked soap for the shower. The only soap available was a hand pump soap by the sink. Neither of these were deal breakers and would not hesitate to stay there again.

Thank you for all of the positive feedback about Bella Vista we feel so priviledged to live here. So sorry about the soap and the refreshments ! We`ll be checking on this as we ( innkeepers) were away for a few days and left B&B in the care of an Innsitter. Thank you for choosing us and hope to see you again soon !

Very Sincerely,

Bob and Kathleen Ash
