Bella Vista ID

4601 Ramona Street , Meridian, ID 83642 USA (Show map)


Bella Vista is a quiet and cozy Boise bed & breakfast overlooking Idaho’s Treasure Valley, where the cities of Boise and Meridian and the scenic beauty of Idaho converge. A gourmet continental style breakfast is included with each night’s stay featuring local product: fresh baked goods, fruits, cheeses, yogurt and homemade specialties. The kitchenette is open 24 hours, stocked with snacks, Keurig coffee, teas and other beverages. Bella Vista is just minutes from the expressway so your Boise Bed and Breakfast has easy access to the area businesses and recreation. We are just minutes away from The Village at Meridian, St Lukes Regional Medical Center, Scentsy, Gramercy and Silverstone business parks. And yet, while we are close, the Bella Vista setting is a serene retreat in a quiet neighborhood. We hope you will visit us soon!

Stayed only two nights this 3rd time staying. However, it was my first stay in the bigger Ivy Room. Both rooms are very accommodating and comfortable. I am thankful for these hosts. We have become of good aquaintence. I would always recommend staying at Bella Vista!

A quiet, clean place

Bob and Belva have provided an ideal place for us to rest. A comfortable, clean surrounding with good quality of coffee, water and healthy snacks so we can unwind, replenish, and most of all is to have a good night sleep to continue our journey. Both your warmness and thoughtful care to all are admired and appreciated LiLing : ))

We'll be back!

Thank you for an wonderful experience during our three nights at Bella Vista ID. We enjoyed the comforts of home with a beautiful view and great breakfasts. Bob and Belva were gracious and responsive, yet respected our privacy. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Nancy Edwards and Greg Lee

Bella Vista B & B - aptly named

5 on September 16, 2015

My husband and I enjoyed our two night stay at Bella Vista Bed & Breakfast. We ate our breakfasts on the front patio with a beautiful view of the lush surroundings and distant mountains. Bob and Belva were gracious hosts, accommodating our vegan diets. The living area was spacious with a TV and complementary bottled water, beer and wine from a local vineyard. We visited the vineyard on Sunday afternoon, enjoying a Blues concert and wine tasting.

Awesome B&B!

Bella Vista could not have been more relaxing and wonderful. They had a fridge stocked with fun drinks for us and a fully functional kitchenette. A super comfy bed, spacious rooms, a relaxing TV area, and a gorgeous, luxurious bathroom made this a fun and relaxing weekend! Bob and Belva were awesome hosts and wonderful people! I would highly recommend a stay here to anyone who asks. Sam

Very nice return

This was my second stay here. I do enjoy the remoteness, but also the easy distance to everything. I really needed the peace and quiet to get work done and knew from my previous stay that this is what I would get. As before, the breakfasts were good. I do plan to go back next year

Cleanest B&B we've stayed at...

This place was the bomb. We called at the last minute, literally. They accommodated us to the max. The rooms have a separate entrance and everything is perfect and clean. The decorating is impeccable. The view is amazing as the sun rises. The keepers were so kind and attentive. We will definitely be coming back.

Very Nice!

A great place to stay

Gracious hosts, comfortable bed, spotlessly clean and a wonderful view. This was a great stop after a long day on the road. AND, we're almost tempted to travel back to Idaho again just for breakfast, the yogurt parfait was a super way to start the day.

Peaceful, quiet weekend with extended family

5 on June 15, 2014

My husband and I came to the Nampa/Meridian/Boise area with our preschooler and my parents to attend some meetings. The Bella Vista was a perfect location for our families to stay. This B & B is in a great location and has exceptional views of the area. It is in a peaceful and quiet neighborhood. The hosts are lovely and so very gracious, helpful, and kind. We had two wonderful bedrooms, one and a half baths, living area with a wonderful kitchen space and a comfortable sitting room. Also, we had access to a large shaded patio space with a sprawling grassy lawn. Next time we are in the area or just passing through, we plan on visiting this little jewel of a spot. ~RL
