Bella Alpaca is a real gem, with a wonderfully gifted family and beautiful B&B, with alpacas! I contacted Sal and Judy in November to set up an overnight trip for 9 of us for a bachelorette party. They were very easy to work with, and had a plethora of wonderful suggestions, including a Wine Tasting at the White Silo Winery, a private Yoga class with Judy herself, and a beautiful Vespers service that transformed our weekend. They wisely suggested we rent the entire main lodge, and we took them up on the suggestion. It was the best decision ever! We started our weekend with an amazing private Yoga class with Judy at her studio in the main town. Judy was a wonderful teacher: patient, knowledgeable, and with a keen eye for her students. When we first walked in to the actual B&B, we were blown away by the atmosphere. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms clean, and the rooms warm thanks to the pellet stoves that also served to add to the ambiance. The bookshelves were filled with an eclectic set of (interesting) books, and there was a TV with a small selection of movies for those who were inclined to lounge around. We were very kindly given permission to use their kitchen, which was clean and had a wonderful industrial stove and oven, on the condition that we keep things meticulously clean. (Which we did!) We brought our own food, and were able to re-heat it for a delicious dinner that fit perfectly with our weekend! The breakfast was a typical breakfast, with no frills. It was simple, homemade and a great way to kick off our day. We hands down recommend this B&B to any traveler who is looking for a home-away-from-home. If you are the type of person who is okay with the rooster mistakenly crowing at 3 AM, (and can laugh it off,) a bookshelf where Harry Potter sits next to Nostradamus, and alpacas that refuse to be tricked into being petted, (but who will photo bomb with pleasure), then this is the place for you!

Great weekend getaway. A lot of wonderful wineries and cute towns as well as hiking in the area. The B&B is so clean, and well run!

What a beautiful, peaceful place. The alpacas are wonderful and so much fun to be around. The rooms were lovely with log beds with a comfy mattress. Took a fabulous yoga class and got a aromatherapy treatment. We were in heaven.

Loved hanging out with the Alpacas on this Farm. The room was very clean, but sparse. Bare minimum. Make sure you bring your own beverages, snacks. For $215.00 a night, I think that some water bottles and a couple of cups in the bathroom would have been nice. Maybe a couple of comfy chairs to relax in to make the room more comfy and inviting. A garbage can by the bed and a clock; just basic stuff. Other B&B's I have been to have a beverage and snack in the kitchen for guests to enjoy. Salvatore and Judy and their son, who own this B&B were very nice, friendly people. Breakfast was good. Slept well. Quiet and peaceful there.
