Beautiful Bella Vista Anniversary

4.0 on October 06, 2014

The view is breathtaking, staff and service top notch!

Beautiful with Gorgeous Views

5 on May 06, 2014

This is the most beautiful B&B that I've ever been to. The rooms were very nicely decorated each with its own balcony that had a gorgeous view of the California gold country or the amazing well manicured property. Breakfast was delicious...I had mine on my balcony. The Ash's are beautiful people and I will definitely be taking my next R&R retreat at the Bella Vista. I was spoiled and pampered and I totally loved it.

Stay and Venue for a Wedding

5 on October 15, 2013

We just had our wedding at Bella Oct. 12 and the venue, event coordinator and owners exceeded our expectations! Everything ran very smooth and our wedding was absolutely beautiful. Bella Vista is breathtaking and a relaxing place to stay. The owners are so sweet and so personable you really feel at home there. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and have our special day. Thank you so much Bella vista! Tim & Dana Lazorko

Charming with unbelievable views

The rooms were charming, beautifully decorated and impeccable! All of the little details made it very special. There were wonderful bath products, and the kitchen had a variety of coffees and teas. The views were incredible! Coffee and pastries were put out for us early in the morning, and then we were served a gourmet breakfast. Kathleen and Bob were helpful and friendly, sharing information about the area. I felt like I was a special guest in their home! Would highly recommend and hope to go back someday!

Best get away ever!

My husband and I got away for the first time in years since we have two small kids. The Bella Vista was exactly what we needed. The view is memorizing, the pool is fun, the hot tub was wonderfull, breakfast was amazing (super filling). We would recommend anyone to stay there. We are even going to tell our friends to check it out for a wedding sight because it is gorgeous and would be very accommodating for a wedding party. We will be back for our next anniversary for sure!

Our stay at Bella Vista was an enjoyable experience. The home and food was excellent. Kathlee Ash was very hospitable and made us feel comfortable and relaxed right away. I would highly recommend Bella Vista as a #1 place to stay in Placerville.

Beautiful B&B with an awesome view. Excellent service and a yummy breakfast all with a friendly smile. We highly recommend a visit and definitely take them up on the dinner will be glad you did! We will be back.

Absolutely beautiful!!

Excellent location and amazing views. Pool side wine and cheese were the perfect ending after an eventful day spent white water rafting. Breakfast graciously served by Kathleen the following morning was enjoyed by all. Our two bedroom suite with its own living room and kitchenette gave us plenty of privacy and room to relax. We felt completely at home and cant wait to return. Far superior to any other local Bed and Breakfast.

Our stay at the Bella Vista B&B can only be described as magical! We only meant to have a weekend getaway to see my daughter, but our weekend at the Bella Vista turned into something magical. The room was spacious and immaculate. The view was breath taking. The ambiance was so romantic. The breakfast was fabulous. The packages offered were awesome. We selected to have a nice bottle of wine waiting for us upon our arrival and the romance package. Imagine rose pedals from the door leading to the bed, with candlelight's, soft music, and a fresh strawberry treats waiting for you when you return from a nice dinner. This is a must experience adventure for those in LOVE.
