Reviewed August 6, 2014

My wife and I recently spent a weekend at Bella Vista to get away. It was amazing! Quiet, peaceful, the view is incredible! They have an awesome pool with a super fun rock slide and jacuzzi. The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. The gourmet breakfast was delicious. Kathleen is an excellent cook and host. We would go back in a heartbeat. If you are thinking of a getaway in Northern Ca, this is the place.

Bella Vista B+B is a slice of heaven. The rooms are fantastic and cozy. Kathleen goes above and beyond to make sure that you're time there is completely relaxing. The feel of the place is that of a secluded little paradise with the most amazing views of river and exact spot where gold was discovered in 1848. There are numerous wineries within minutes of the place and also some of the best whitewater rafting in CA is only 3 miles away. You won't know how truly amazing this place is until you go there.

This place is by far the best place I have ever stayed. I have stayed all over the state of CA, and Bella Vista sets the bar. We were married there and had amazing wedding. I have stayed in every room they offer over the years and all of them are great.

Since this B&B is just outside the Coloma, CA city limits, TripAdvisor lists it under Placerville. However, it's much closer to Coloma than Placerville, and is very convenient if you're visiting the Coloma area. I stayed here four days in July 2014 for the RiverTunes Music Camp at the American River Resort, a 5 minute drive away.

This is a beautifully maintained B&B, with a very helpful staff. (They made up the bed every day and changed the towels (which I didn't expect at a B&B). Best of all for people like us who didn't want to pitch a tent at the riverside, there is excellent central air conditioning -- a delight in the 100 degree heat we faced every day.

Our first impression of Bella Vista was that we were entering an Italian villa. There were a fountain and a wide green lawn in front of the main building. Our room was beautifully and elegantly decorated with a 4-poster bed in its own little alcove that could be closed off with a curtain. The bathroom was very beautiful and I loved the thick, plush robes! Our patio balcony overlooked the grounds. We had our delicious breakfast (strawberry french toast) there while we watched a mother peacock stroll across the lawn with her babies. In the back of the inn was a small pool surrounded by rocks and a little waterfall, all overlooking the valley. We had it all to ourselves after an early dinner. It was so peaceful and relaxing. I wish we could have stayed more than one night at Bella Vista. By the way, the winery right next door to Bella Vista will give you a substantial discount if you are staying at this B & B.

Bella Vista is a beautiful place located in the hills with spectacular views and close to towns. Kathleen, the innkeeper is a wonderful hostess & the breakfast was amazing. It is a perfect get a-way for that special occasion or for some peace of mind. I highly recommend Bella Vista and will be returning with my husband.

This B&B has something for everyone - romantic couples or families, and hopefully they stay respectful of each other. The view from all rooms is spectacular and the pool is delightful, including a built-in waterslide next to the waterfall. Each room is tastefully decorated and the common area and grounds are special too. It is a destination on its own.
