Enjoyed Our Stay

4.6 on June 28, 2017

We had a wonderful time at the Inn at Bella Vista! Loved the view from our balcony. The suite was very roomy and the bed comfortable. We slept very well. Bill and Beverly were so sweet. They even came and picked us up with our bikes at the end of the Razorback Greenway so we didn't have to ride on the highway (not to mention climb the incredible hill leading up to the Inn). Beverly cooked us a delicious breakfast the next morning.

We LOVE staying at The Inn at Bella Vista. Bill and Bev are great hostesses and make you feel like you are special guests. The inn is an architectural jewel and Bev's breakfasts are delightful!! We enjoy visiting in different seasons as the area is so beautiful in every season.

Innkeeper Response
We always enjoy returning guests because we feel like old friends back for a visit. Thanks for the nice comments and I'll try never to disappoint at breakfast. What is your favorite menu here?

The place to stay in Bella Vista

4.0 on April 08, 2017

We had an exceptional stay at the Inn at Bella Vista. Bill and Beverly are excellent hosts. They are helpful when asked, and not "all over" guests who want to relax. Breakfast was delightful. We enjoyed the decor within the Inn, and the beauty outside. I just can not imagine staying elsewhere. We have friends in the area, but the Inn is close to Crystal Bridges, and we liked that also.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for the great review. Glad you can't imagine staying elsewhere because we enjoy our guests and love for them to return.

Very friendly, attentive bed and breakfast. I enjoyed my stay. I had to leave prior to breakfast time. But I'm sure it would have been delicious.

Best stay in a long time!

Bella Vista visit

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.

Innkeeper Response
We really enjoyed having you stay and hope the house hunting turned out successful. We will look forward to having you back.

A Perfect Stay

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.
