My wife and I stayed at the Inn at Bella Vista during a recent househunting trip. The staff and accommodations were outstanding. The venue is both peaceful and casually elegant, sited in an historical Fay Jones property and surrounded by acres of natural grounds. We plan to visit again in the future, just to enjoy the wonderful ambiance of the site.
We really enjoyed having you stay and hope the house hunting turned out successful. We will look forward to having you back.

My wife and I came up for a weekend visit to the nearby Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. The Inn is a Faye Jones designed house. What a lovely experience. Perfect hosts and a great breakfast. The Inn is set in the woods on a hilltop and sitting on the porch was a pleasure.
Crystal Bridges is one of the wonderful things about living in this area and we are always glad for our guests to enjoy their stay when visiting the museum.

A relaxing stay, lovely hosts in a Fay Jones house in the woods. I had been there 4 years ago...even better than I remembered. Deer grazing in the meadow in the evening.
We loved having you and your friends here. I'll make sure to remember how you like breakfast on the next trip. Even made a note. Hope everyone had a safe trip home.

It was a very nice and quiet area. Secluded. They were very kind, hospitable and very friendly. They catered to your unique breakfast needs and time. Gave you plenty of privacy. Much nicer then a hotel. Highly recommend if you are looking for a nice, relaxing stay.

The Inn was great!!! The owners are friendly, humorous, and it's obvious the customer comes first. The only problem I had was I was awakened at 3am by a cricket crawling in my bed. Not how I wanted to wake up.

Beautiful B&B, nestled in the woods, in early spring a view of the city, seeming isolated but not at all.

I love old and rustic surrounded by nature. I felt like I was staying at an old friends house. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at The Inn at Bella Vista. Beverly and Bill were wonderful hosts.

The service was one of the best I've had at any bed and breakfast! The hosts were kind and as helpful as they possibly could be. I would highly recommend them.

Gorgeous location, wonderful hosts. Rooms on 2nd floor have deck with a great view of a beautiful valley. Sunrises are fabulous. Lots of bird feeders right on the patio. If you like birds, this is a great place. In warm weather, breakfast is available on the patio by the pool.

Loved my time at the inn. Just needed a place to escape and recharge, but also found such blessing in getting to know the innkeepers. They are such kind people, with a true heart for service!
We really enjoyed having you on your overnight escape. If there is anything we can do to make your next escape better, please let us know.

We visited Crystal Bridges in Bentonville. A friend mentioned the Inn at Bella Vista as an alternative to a hotel. A great suggestion! The rose room was lovely and large with great views. Beverly and Bill Williams are delightful hosts...eager to help in any way. Breakfasts were delicious. We are already telling friends about Crystal Bridges and The Inn at Bella Vista. A great combination!
Thank you for your lovely review. We love Crystal Bridges and think we are a good match for a visit. And, of course, we always appreciate referrals.

We had just visited Crystal Bridges where they moved a Frank Lloyd Wright house from New Jersey. Then we checked into the Inn at Bella Vista. The house had the same feel - lots of wood and stone. Not surprising since the house was designed by a student of FLW's. There are 5 guest rooms; the three on the second floor have a deck that runs across the back of the house to provide the bella vista of the surrounding hills and valley. We stayed in the Sequoah Room, which was large; but I think all the rooms are spacious. The innkeepers have kept the house in it's original form, down to the custom loomed carpeting in the former living room (now dining room). The grounds are beautiful, and include a lovely swimming pool open in the summer months. Good morning coffee; breakfast was a bit sweet. We will definitely stay here again when we come back to see the fall splendor in a better year.
Thanks for the nice review. We look forward to seeing you in the Fall. Just remind me that you prefer a more savory breakfast and I will take care of it. I have about 30 breakfast menus and can always accommodate our guests' needs.

A beautiful property, with thoughtful details. The best breakfast you'll ever eat!
Thanks for your nice comments. We've tried very hard to think of all the details but I'm sure we will continue to find more to add. Since I love cooking breakfasts for our guests, I am pleased that you enjoyed it so much. Hope you have another chance to visit us.

My husband and I enjoyed everything about the inn. The surroundings are beautiful, the owners/staff are incredibly welcoming, and breakfast was amazing! We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.

Thanks so much to Bill and Beverly for a wonderful time at their inn!
5 on May 01, 2015
At first sight, seemed remote, but it's within a leisure drive to malls, Crystal Bridges, Wal-Mart origins and much more. So relaxing, calming and host's were phenomenal. Truly enjoyed the quaint conversations and hospitality. Thank both of you for slowing me down and relaxing my mind.
5 on January 22, 2015
Beautiful architecture and graciously hospitable host and hostess make this bread and breakfast outstanding! The kind thoughtfulness and warm open-heartedness of the owners made my visit to Bella Vista even more enjoyable than just lovely scenery and classic art. The Inn at Bella Vista is the BEST!
Thank you for your lovely review. We strive hard to create a special environment for our guests and always appreciate feedback. Fortunately we have many wonderful guests like you which makes it easy to enjoy our job and take care of people. We look forward to having you back.

Great view, nice hosts. Traffic was horrible, locals drove like idiots. Home was very nice but a bit much for two people to take care of.
4.6 on November 22, 2014
My wife and I spent two nights and would stay there again if visiting the area. Beautiful setting, lots of personal attention and great breakfasts. Bentonville and the Crystal Bridges Museum were also great.
Just wanted to thank you for the lovely review. With the cold snap this November the fall color wasn't as beautiful as usual but it still is a nice time of year to visit the area. I hope you do have a chance to come back. There's so much to do here including the constantly changing programs at Crystal Bridges. Have a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Delightful property. Warm and welcoming innkeepers. Offered helpful tips about the area and dinner locations. Will definitely recommend to friends and we plan to return.

Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit. The atmosphere is informal, relaxed, and friendly. The area is beautiful. The hummingbirds and deer added to the fun. Beverly and Bill are gracious hosts.

We stayed here for a long weekend associated with a family event in Bella Vista. The grounds were fabulous and the hosts were absolutely delightful. My family would stay here again in a heartbeat...better than any hotel offering in the entire region. Thanks for sharing your wonderful Inn.

Bill and Beverly were delightful hosts with endless stories and advice about the area. I couldn't have asked for better accomodations or breakfast. Can't wait to go back!

Beverly and Bill are amazing B&B owners. They make you feel very welcome, almost like you're family. They are very knowledgeable about local areas to check out and good eateries! They are funny and great cooks. Stay over on a weekend to enjoy the B&B's special Peach French Toast every Sunday. It is amazing!! Rooms are so big and comfortable. Recommend if you stay anywhere near the Bella Vista, AR area to stay here!!!
5 on June 20, 2014
I truly felt like I'd come home when I stayed with Beverly at the Bella Vista Inn. My room (Sequoyah) was clean, quiet, spacious yet cozy. The back deck was great to have and the grounds are immaculate and so beautiful. Chipmunks and birds seemed to be just as happy visiting as I was. Beverly went out of her way to make my stay comfortable, from adjusting my amazing breakfast each day to my liking, to welcoming me personally as I returned at the end of each day. She has a heart of gold and her Inn was a home away from home. Her assistants were also just as warm, friendly and went out of their way to make me feel welcome. This is the only place I'll stay in Bella Vista and I recommend it highly.
5 on June 18, 2014
We had the pleasure of staying at the Inn at Bella Vista for two nights. The location is quite convenient to Bentonville, Rogers and surrounding attractions. It's an oasis just minutes off the highway. Rooms are pristine, breakfasts are delicious and the views are breath taking. Inn keeper Bev and hubby Bill are so pleasant and friendly. We plan to return.
5 on June 16, 2014
We stayed at the Inn for two nights while in town for a wedding at the Cooper chapel. We stayed in the Ivy room which was on the first floor. It was a lovely appointed room with a large walk in closet and private bathroom with a tub/shower combination. Breakfast was delicious - stay over for a Sunday - peach french toast! We had privacy when we wanted it, and found ourselves visiting at the coffee table with Beverly when in the mornings. I'd recommend the Inn at Bella Vista. It's easy to get to, but once you're there, it's quiet and in the woods.
4.4 on June 04, 2014
I enjoyed my stay here. Setting is gorgeous: clean, wooded access and front entry and beautiful views overlooking Arkansas green in the back. Location was perfect, 5 minutes away from the wedding I attended, 15 mins from Crystal Bridges. Price was reasonable. Innkeeper Beverly was friendly and helpful. I was confident she would assist with anything I needed although I didn’t need much. As a golf pro, she did give me an insightful golf tip that I’ve not heard before! She also gave me careful hand-written directions for the back approach to Crystal Bridges Museum. Very sweet woman. My room was lovely, clean, well-stocked. Bathroom was large. A binder in the room explained the history of the house and room and identified photos and items. The bed was comfortable and I slept well. Breakfast of peach French toast and bacon was quite good. Patios and gardens around the house are visited by many kinds of birds, encouraged by numerous bird feeders. Hundreds of bright annuals were potted around the pool and grounds. To be completely objective, must say that the décor of the house is a bit worn. Friends and I identified it as a 1970s Brady Bunch house, with orange and yellow shag carpet on the stairway. The innkeeper did mention in the information booklet that she hoped to change this soon. Asian features and décor are very restful and appropriate to the house, although different from the usual Victorian or cozy country décor I’m more familiar with in bed-and-breakfast lodging. There are a few homey touches such as peeling wallpaper in the bathroom, an abandoned exercise bike stored in view by the pool and a POD storage unit in view. My own OCD tendencies would have required me to move the bike and fix the wallpaper. None of this detracted from my pleasant stay. The beautiful setting and the gracious innkeeper were the highlights and certainly made up for any minor detraction. I would definitely stay at Inn at Bella Vista again.

Breakfasts are exemplary Hosts are superb View is fantastic Information and suggestions (including additional sites to see and experiences to have while in the area and while visiting Crystal Bridges) adds dimension to the experience A very satisfied customer -Thea
Thea, thanks for your lovely review. We work hard to take care of all our guests and it's nice to see that we succeeded with you. Loved your family and look forward to seeing you all again.

The friendly super warm welcome was buttressed thoughout our stay. Bev and Bill are top notch "people people" so their labor of love is to the benefit of their guests. Breakfast is spectacular. Building, grounds and setting high atop an Arkansas 'high hill' all make for a great setting. Room was perfect & a delight for souls seeking to pause, reflect and re unite. Oh, did I say we REALLY liked it? We did, really like it!
4.4 on December 05, 2013
We had a great stay with wonderful hosts in a Bedand Breakfast that can only be described as an architectural gem. It was great to return to Arkansas. Bill and Beverly invited us to join family and other gests at a phenomenal Thanksgiving dinner and truly made us feel at home.

Very nice accommodations, views from the house terrific. Warm and friendly folks. Breakfast was outstanding.

We had a great time at the Inn. Our room was large and had a great view. Breakfast was perfect both mornings that we were there. Beverly and Bubba could not have done any more to make our stay any better.

We chose The Inn At Bella Vista as our home base during our visit to the The Crystal Bridges Museum in nearby Bentonville, Arkansas. It was the perfect retreat: beautiful setting, distinguished architecture and wonderful hosts.
5 on October 07, 2013
This is a lovely stone and glass manse on a hilltop with expansive views over a wooded valley and large patios to enjoy them from.There are neighbors but you can't see or hear them. The Blue Room was large, clean, had a comfortable queen bed, and a large shower. Beverly is extremely pleasant and friendly - also helpful with dinner reservations (see our Fred's Hickory Inn review on Tripadvisor). Breakfasts were excellent, but I am a peach nut and just loved the French toast smothered in peaches. If you go, be sure to spend a few hours at the Crystal Bridges art museum.
5 on August 31, 2013
We spent two nights here while visiting northwest Arkansas and Crystal Bridges Art Museum. We loved the house which was designed by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright and featured many of his ideas. The living room carpet is a masterpiece, like a dry riverbed complete with river rock and sandbar formations. The hosts were most hospitable and welcomed our dog who enjoyed the wooded landscape. Wildlife abounds, chipmunks, deer and hummingbirds were regular visitors, encouraged by the inn keepers who obviously love their location. Beverley is not only a golf pro but an accomplished chef and gave us hearty, delicious breakfasts. Spacious, comfortable room with private bath. Great spot in beautiful countryside. JW
4.8 on May 04, 2013
We had a wonderful experience at this unique and very welcoming inn. We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and Beverly went above and beyond to make it extra meaningful. She made us feel so special and was so helpful with adviice, and in making reservations. The breakfasts were fabulous and served with such charm and friendliness. I would go back here any time I could.
4.2 on January 31, 2013
I stayed there several weeks ago and found it a little uncomfortable due to the personal décor in my room hanging pictures, photo album, etc. Suggestion: the room would feel more comfortable with random paintings/modern décor. The carpet was beautiful in the room, just not the hallway. Loved the cleanness of the house, very nice people, the food was mostly good. Didn't like the fact of no t.v. in my room but really enjoyed meeting the two cutest dogs. I will go back and hopefully the room has had a make-over ;-)

Short but great stay. Location in wooded, scenic area, a bit out of the way but well worth the trip. Great view, great food, two super dogs. Felt like visiting family. (And spectacular holiday decorations.)

Everything exceeded expectations! Beverly was a most gracious, helpful host. Her suggestions, driving directions (she'll draw maps), explanations of history, etc. were spot on. Breakfast was not the ordinary - different recipes which were as pretty as they were delicious. If I am ever back in that part of the country, I will stay there again.

The Inn at Bella Vista is a Faye Jones residence set in gorgeous woods. The innkeeper is one of the most knowledgeable with whom I have dealt. Every one of her suggestions was on the mark. She was a fount of great information and a superb cook to boot. Our stay was a total delight.
4.6 on October 20, 2012
The Inn was recommended to us by a friend of a friend, and it was as nice as they described.

My husband and I stayed here in October 2012 on a trip to see family in southern Missouri. What a treat! Our room had all the amenities and a really comfortable bed. Breakfast was yummy and in an elegant setting. Our hostess thought of everything and was so warm and welcoming. Weather permitting, we're hoping to come back for our 10th anniversary and spend a couple of days in this wonderful respite from a much too busy life!

We could not have asked for a cleaner place to stay. The breakfasts were outstanding.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The house is lovely and the grounds are so peaceful,with beautiful plants and loads of hummingbirds! Our room was very comfortable and had a nice view. There were many places to sit and relax, inside and out. We only wish that we could have stayed longer. Our host Beverly was just great. She is very pleasant and makes a yummy breakfast! We hope to return.
5 on August 27, 2012
I stayed at the inn for a week. It was an incredible week! Beverly makes you feel at home and her food is so good! Not only was my room outstanding, but the golf school was terrific. Beverly is a very patient teacher. I would recommend the Inn at Bella Vista to everyone. I certainly will be back.

We enjoyed everything about our stay, from our charming innkeeper Beverly to the beautiful view from our room. We felt so at home and relaxed.

We only stayed one night but thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Inn at Bella Vista! Beverly was a gracioius hostess and excellent cook. Her tips on Crystal Bridges and other local attractions were extremely helpful. We stayed in the Rose room and it was much bigger than expected. Staying there felt more like we were staying with a good friend than at a stuffy B&B, and we appreciated the relaxed atmosphere.
5 on June 11, 2012
This was a wonderful place to stay for a weekend, rooms were great, common area was gorgious and the grounds were wonderful. Great patio to sit and sip wine and talk. large pool to cool off in. Gourmet Breakfasts and best of all the hospitality was great, Beverly was a wonderful host and helped us book two of the best meals we have had ever. We lucked out with a last minute reservation for Memorial Day weekend but you shouldn't wait, it is a great romantic and strss free experience. highly recommended Rick Holsted and Robin

My wife and I celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary at the Inn at Bella Vista. The room was large and the view was wonderful (including the view of the valley below from the large stone patio next to the pool area). The service was wonderful and the breakfasts were outstanding. We definitely plan on returning.
5 on May 15, 2012
We stayed at the Inn for my Wife's Birthday and it could not have been any better. The room was clean and spacious and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Ms. Beverly was a joy to talk with and she cooks a mean breakfast. Hopefully we can stay with her again real soon.
5 on May 10, 2012
We truly felt like honored guests at a friend's home. The breakfasts were sumptuous, the staff was delightful, the house was tasteful while at the same time indulgent, and the grounds were breathtaking! While you can get service at any bed and breakfast, you get SPOILED at the Inn at Bella Vista!
4.6 on May 09, 2012
I can highly recommend at stay here. The surrounds are amazing...what views! Our hosts were incredibly gracious...every need attended to...they even gave us a coupon for our evening meal with great recommendations. Truly it was more like staying at the home of a dear friend.
5 on May 06, 2012
We always liked the area and decided to stay at the Inn at Bella Vista, and we are extremely happy we made that decision! It is a beautiful place and everyone was very friendly and made sure that we had everything we needed. Plus, the breakfast in the morning was awesome and we really didn't want to leave! Kudos to Beverly for making that about the best place we've ever stayed!
4.2 on February 22, 2012
We loved this place and spent two nights there. It is a very, very relaxing and homey atmosphere. We felt as though we were just staying in a very large home and got to know not only the wonderful inn-keeper, but also other guests. The grounds are beautiful and overlook the mountainside. Because of where the house is located and the several acres of land around the property, it feels like a great big cabin in the hills of Arkansas. I really liked the interior of the home because there is lots of stacked stone and a huge fireplace in the main den area. The decor is somewhat '70s, but not in a bad way at all; I would describe it as more nostalgic than dated. Out the back are floor-to-ceiling windows with lots of outside views pretty much wherever you go in the house.

It was nice. Beverly is great. Would have rated the room higher except my mattress was too soft

We went to Arkansas to visit the Crystal Bridges museum and found a gem of a Bed and Breakfast in Bella Vista. The great service and hospitality made us feel right at home and we are looking forward to returning often in the future.

I had reviewed the photographs posted on The Inn at Bella Vista’s website and it looked very good. But when I arrived, my expectations were exceeded. Beverly, our host, had everything ready for us. The inn is large and spacious, but still has the feel of a home. It is set in a wooded area on a high ridge overlooking the valley below. The balcony of our room had a spectacular view. Our accommodations were upscale, including plush towels, warm robes and a large, comfortable bed. We had everything we needed and more. The next morning I took a walk on the grounds and even on the blustery November day, I was able to see thirteen species of birds within a short time, including a Great Horned Owl and a Sharp-shinned Hawk that perched very close to me for an excellent view. When I returned to the dining room for breakfast, the coffee was ready and the room was warm. A glass wall still provided a wonderful view to the lawn and woods. Our host prepared us a gourmet breakfast. The food and service were superior. I will let Beverly surprise you with her skills at cooking. We spent our day at the new Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in nearby Bentonville. Arkansas is very lucky to have this truly world-class museum. The architecture is inspiring, as is its incredible collection of American master works form the 17th through the 21st centuries. Although the museum was free, our host was kind enough to get us the required tickets in advance of our visit. The next morning, we enjoyed different, but still very delicious, breakfast. Our host told us about a small chapel located in a secluded woods above a small lake nearby. It was well worth the very short ride from the inn to see it. In summary, we thoroughly enjoyed our at The Inn at Bella Vista, especially for the very reasonable compensation we paid. I would highly recommend it for a great week-end retreat.
5 on November 29, 2011
While visiting my daughter who lives in Bentonville I stayed at the Inn for 3 nights. I found Beverly, the Innkeeper, very friendly and the dining room offered amazing views for a most elegant breakfast each morning. The guest rooms are nicely decorated and have very comfortable beds. The entire Inn is very cozy and clean! I look forward to my next visit!

We feel like we have known Beverly forever. She has a wonderful house and loves to share it. We had a great time with our golf lessons, Beverly is a great teacher. First morning we had eggs benedict, to die for, tomorrow we will have stuffed french toast,yum. We are in the blue room, awesome view. Highly recommend staying here, we will be back.

The privacy and hospitality were great. A beautiful home with a great view. My wife and I also had a great visit with the Innkeeper, Beverly Williams, as we were the only guests staying in the off season. I suggest reserving the Master Suite, with a newer style jet bath. Enjoy!!
4.4 on October 05, 2010
A beautiful, elegant facility, which is matched by the hospitality of the hostess. Beverly provides excellent food and personal attention for her guests, despite the demands upon her time by the golf lessons she also offers. Bathroom cleanliness and function could stand some further attention -partially clogged drains and stains in the toilet. Altogether, our stay was very pleasant, and we highly recommend The Inn to other travelers.
Thank you for your thoughtful review and kind words. My goal is to make everyone feel welcome and taken care of and I'm glad that you had a very pleasant time. I am sorry that you had a slow drain. I try to check them regularly because I do have a couple of rooms that I think the plumbing must have a kink in it but will definitely add it to a more regular maintenance routine. Also, I am in the process of replacing 40 year old toilets and have a couple still to go. I hope that will fix the look of stains. It's a wonderful house and I am glad to share it. I love to get know all my guests and your feedback helps me keep this place in better shape. Thanks.
