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!

My husband and I highly recommend Robert and Belva's B&B. We recently stayed in the slightly larger bedroom, plus had access to a full kitchen (no stove, but did have a microwave) living room and (shared) bathroom. All of them were well appointed and spotless. The house is situated high on a hill with a beautiful view of the hills. We had a fun time enjoying breakfast on the patio while listening to and watching the many birds who live in the area. The neighborhood is lovely and quiet. This is a terrific alternative to the typical hotel or motel.

We stayed in the Ivy room, with a queen bed. Our room and another (Bamboo) share the daylight basement suite, which is spacious and comfortable and easily accessible from parking just down a paved walkway between the front patio and front door. The views of the hills were beautiful each morning and afternoon. Our hosts quietly brought us breakfast each morning, including local food items. Our fridge had beverages, there were included snacks available, and every room was pleasantly furnished. We would absolutely stay again.

You have to share the bathroom with the other guests. Also the bamboo room is small and only has a double bed. The owner is super nice and the breakfast was great. The huckleberry jam was fantastic. It is just a short drive from eagle road where there is plenty of shopping and dining.

We came to Idaho in search of our retirement home and we walked away with one... it was an EPIC stay at the Bella Vista with Robert the inn keeper being so knowledgeable about the area... the morning meals Belva made was delicious and it was so much fun to wait in anticipation of what the next morning meal would be like... we were like li'l kids waiting for Christmas morning every morning we stayed there.

we were in town for the first time as guest to a 50th wedding celebration. This is one of our first B&B experience and it was absolutely wonderful. The rooms were wonderful, the breakfasts were spectacular and host were gracious and had a great sense of when to be present and when to leave us alone. This should be by far your first choice of lodging when in the Boise area for any reason.

The Bella Vista was extremely comfortable, accommodating, and felt like home. The owners were friendly and the breakfast was very good each day. I'd highly recommend them for travelers that want to feel like they have never left home in a new town.

What a discovery! We recently spent three nights at this beautiful retreat. The hosts, Robert and Belva, were as kind and generous as we've ever met:) The quiet rooms, the wonderful breakfasts (such abundance!), the sunrises over the mountains, all made the difficult time we had to spend in Idaho much easier to bear. We loved our breakfasts on the lovely patio overlooking the valley and long to return to this place of beauty and rest. Merci, R&B:)

Bella Vista was located up on a hill with a beautiful view. The accommodations were clean and very comfortable. You really felt at home here. Bob and Belva were so kind and hoapitable. Each morning we were provided a wonderful breakfast. I looked forward to seeing what our hosts were serving. They even provided some complimentary snacks and drinks in our fridge for us. I look forward to returning here!

This is the first time we stayed here but certainly not the last. The owners go far beyond what is required. Even though they had plans the morning we left, they still stopped and took the time to play a game with my young daughter when she asked. You don't leave there feeling like you stayed at a bed and breakfast, you leave feeling like you just stayed with family.

The home is impressive, and has a view over treetops and Boise to the foothills. The room was comfortable, private (we utilized the exclusivity option), and the kitchenette was well stocked. The owners also left a bottle of Merlot for our wedding night. Breakfast was ample and very tasty--we had some left over for later. The owners were friendly, and offered welcome and interesting conversation. A very pleasant stay.
