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.

A beautiful property, with thoughtful details. The best breakfast you'll ever eat!

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.

Lovely getaway...

Thanks so much to Bill and Beverly for a wonderful time at their inn!

Most relaxing B & B in Arkansas

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.

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!

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.

Great place to stay

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.

Wonderful and unique B&B!
