“Bella Everything!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

The euphonious Bella Vista lived up to its name and then some - perfect, unpretentious hospitality, luxurious accommodations, and a pool with a view down the valley and across the river. I haven't been so relaxed in years.

Myself, husband and our 15 year old son, stayed here in May 2013. It was excellent. The owners were very helpful but not intrusive in any way, and the property was very well taken care of. We enjoyed our room, and loved that our son had his own room with a separate entrance as well. The breakfast was amazing and very filling. We needed to leave early to continue on to Lake Tahoe and they were able to accommodate our schedule with not problem.

The owner was away and Shelly took excellent care of everything. Not a single complaint from me! the accommodations were perfection down to the fluffy towels. Breakfast was beautiful and delicious, the pool (on a record breaking day of heat) was wonderfully refreshing. The grounds and furnishings are first rate and beautifully appointed. my husband had to bow out of the trip, but alone or with your loved one a perfect place to stay!

5 star for beauty, view, cleanliness, comfort, pool and hot tub. Our hosts Kathleen and Bob were personable, easy to visit with "like old friends", we felt very comfortable and "at home", it was hard to leave, can't wait to go back, Thank you Bob and Kathleen for a memorable stay and of course the breakfast was amazing.!!!

The Bella Vista Bed and Breakfast truly lives up to it's name. The views are amazing! Our room waste tastefully furnished, the bed was very comfortable, and our hosts Kathleen and Bob could not have been more gracious.
The signature breakfasts here is a frittata - it's delicious and very rich ,(recipe on their website) or if you prefer they offer fruits, cereal and pastries.

Our only complaint was that we only stayed here 2 nights! We will return!!

Room Tip: The Bella Vista Suite!

We just spent 3 relaxing days at the Bella Vista. There was a panoramic view of the Coloma River Valley from just about every window. Vineyards and pastures dotted the hillsides with the sparkling American River passing through. Kathleen provided a delicious breakfast each morning to start our day that lasted us well into the afternoon. She was helpful to suggest various activities between Nevada City, Auburn and Placerville as well as local and away dining experiences. We found the Bella Vista to be a very pleasant and memorable anniversary get away centrally located for a wide variety of gold rush and winery outings.
