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

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

Wonderful stay at the Inn

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.

Excellent stay! Excellent Breakfast

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.

Great place, Genuine people

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 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!

Innkeeper Response
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.

Amazing Property

4.6 on November 04, 2015

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.

Innkeeper Response
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.
