My wife and i stayed at Bella Vista for 2 nights.. The stay was Simply the best! There was not one thing we disliked--Everything was 100% perfect! Thanks Aaron.. Mark......

Bella Vista Our kind of Place

4.4 on June 30, 2012

A friendly relaxed place. Not stuffy or aloof. Great breakfast with lots of seasonal fresh fruit & yogurt. A communal breakfast table which my wife & I love. Met great people who shared their knowledge of the area and favorite haunts. Sat out on the porch with some wine & cheese with strangers who quickly became friends. Aaron arranged for all the people staying there, a REAL Amish home-cooked dinner on her farm. We recommend Bella Vista and will be returning again!

Great Stay

My husband and I stayed here for two nights while in town visiting a friend. We had to arrive late and Aaron was very accommodating and welcoming. Our room was lovely, the linens were super comfy, and the bathroom in the Bella Vista room was nicely sized with a great double sink. Our conversations with Aaron during our stay were always pleasant and interesting. The breakfasts that we were served were more than plentiful and very enjoyable. This B&B is located in a small town so it is very quiet and peaceful here. There's a good amount of off-street parking and a nice yard, if you're bringing your children. The B&B is not far from many fun touristy things to do and good restaurants for lunch and dinner. We plan on staying here again when we return to PA.

Great Experience!

My best friend and I stayed at the Bella Vista after attending a concert in the area. Due to time constraints, we were not able to check into the B & B before the concert and ended up arriving late. Although it was late, we were greeted warmly and felt like we have arrived at a friend's home. Our room was nice and cozy and the breakfast the next morning was delicious! The next time I travel to the area, I will be staying at the Bella Vista again! Wonderful time!

The Bella Vista has a charming atmosphere and a hospitable and knowledgeable host. Aaron does it all - clean, entertain, and cook (quite well). A very comfortable bed, clean room and delicious breakfast made our visit very enjoyable.

Highly Recommend Bella Vista

Aaron, our host, could not have been friendlier, more helpful, more accommodatiing. The "all you can eat" breakfast included a variety of tasty dishes.

My husband Michael and I had a great time at the Bella Vista Bed & Breakfast. Aaron was a very gracious host. We were able to bring our dog Willow with us, which was really nice so we didn't have to worry about her. Thank you! Angelina & Michael Homan

My Husband and I went to Bella Vista for our one year wedding anniversary back in the end of September. Aaron is a sweetheart and the nicest guy. He let us know what there was to do around town because it was our first visit to Lancaster County. He really is a great a guy and to run such an amazing place all by his self simply amazes us! The room was so clean and big the bed was comfy and the we felt right at home! We stayed in the Colonial. Breakfast was delicious! We did not want to leave and we wish we could have stayed longer! And you can not be the prices for the rooms!!! We knew we would go back. So next month my husband, my best friend, her fiancee and I are all going back for the night and we simply can not wait! We will continue to stay at Bella Vista whenever we go back to Lancaster county. We wouldnt want to stay anywhere else! Thank you Aaron for everything! Keep up the amazing work and we will see you again soon! -The Senns

A Pleasant Stay

4.6 on October 12, 2011

My husband and I had a very pleasant stay at the Bella Vista B & B. We stayed in the Bella Vista room which was lovely and immaculately clean. We did not get to meet the inn keeper because he was away for the weekend but his parents were there to see to our needs and cook us a splendid breakfast. Robin & Steve

A great place to stay

4.2 on October 07, 2011

Our stay at Bella Vista B & B was delightful. The rooms in this century home are attractive and very clean. Aaron, our host, was friendly, informative, and a wonderful cook.

A pleasant stay

3.8 on September 25, 2011

Aaron is a kind, pleasant, accomodating host who treats each guest as a personal friend. I heard from other guests during our stay that he's a avid scrabble player who will while away the evening hours with you playing the game.

Aaron is doing a great job running this B&B by himself! Everything was very clean and the breakfast was huge! He grew up in the area and knows all the good places places to eat and visit.

Great 'first time' B & B experience!

5 on August 28, 2011

This was our first time staying at a Bed & Breakfast and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Aaron is a wonderful host! He made everyone feel comfortable and welcome. He also provided 'breakfast feasts fit for royalty.' Our stay at the Bella Vista was a wonderful experience and one that we hope will be the first of many, many more. Carolyn and Larry Treusch


3.6 on August 27, 2011

I would highly recommend Bella Vista for a friendly, comfy stay in the area of Lancaster. Our host was super friendly and made the time there enjoyable. The only thing that could have made the stay a bit better for me personally was better air conditioning because it was extremely humid & hot while there & a little t.v. in the room would have been nice. Bonnie

Nice Break

4.2 on August 27, 2011

My wife and I stayed here for a night to get away from the city and relax. Aaron, the owner, greeted us and although we were early allowed us to check in and freshen up before we went out to see the sights. Our room was clean and well appointed. The bathroom had a double sink and was very spacious. There were two arm chairs in the room so that at the end of the day when we retired to our room we could watch a little television. Breakfast was great and the other guests that were there made for great conversation... Would recommend to anyone looking for a one day of couple days in Lancaster county area.

The best B&B ever!

5 on July 27, 2011

Very nice place: an old beautiful victorian house. Excellent hospitality, host very helpful. The breakfast was so good! I recommend it strongly. We were three people, and the sofa bed was not really comfortable, but the innkeeper offered a discount so that was fair!

Wish I lived closer so I could stay more often!!

5 on July 26, 2011

This was my mother's and my first stay at a B&B. Aaron was wonderful. He made us feel like we had known him forever and we hated to leave. The room was very clean, beautiful and comfortable. The whole house was very clean and relaxing. Breakfast was more than delicious. Whole wheat waffles, sausage and very good fried potatoes. He also arranged an Amish dinner for us that was wonderful. I doubt any B&B is better than Bella Vista. If you are close--stay!! Thank you, Aaron!!

Lovely B & B

Lovely setting and close to a park in a quiet town. I enjoyed my stay.

wonderful stay

5 on July 04, 2011

My fiance and I spent 4 nights here and we would not change a thung. Aaron is a wonderful host and he has a beautiful home! He was very knowledgeable about the area and was willing to do what it took to make his guests comfortable, but there was not much he needed to do, since we did not want for anything. His home was very clean and had wonderful charm! We will highly recommend to others! Thanks Aaron!! V & S

Beautiful house, nice rooms and guestrooms. We stayed in Bella Vista 3 days. Innkeeper Aaron served, every day different, wonderful breakfasts, and made us feel very welcome. Interesting to see the Amish passing by, and to visit the Ephrata Cloister and Gettysburg (Civil War Museum). Elly & Wessel Kuiper, The Netherlands.

The Greatest B&B I have ever stayed

5 on June 06, 2011

This was our Honeymoon trip and we will return there every anniversary.It is the most beautiful, quiet, charming home. Arron was absolutely adorable and was the perfect host. He is a master chef, an entertainer, travel guide and a prince all in one. I will send all my family and friends to him and am already making plans to go back this fall.

Aaron Kapner is the new innkeeper and he did everything possible to make us feel good and at home. As visitors from the Netherlands, we truely enjoyed our stay in the Bella Vista;

Beautiful Room, Pleasant Host, Great Value

4.4 on April 26, 2011

I have stayed at Bella Vista previously and enjoyed it very much. For this trip I found that Aaron, the new innkeeper, is doing a fine job maintaining the high standards set by his predecessors. He is friendly, personable, a gracious host, and was very accommodating of my unique schedule requests, for which I am grateful. I love the quiet, intimate feel of the third-floor "Hunt" room; it will be my first choice for return visits, of which I expect there will be many. This B&B is an excellent value, very reasonably priced, and makes even a quick overnight visit a pleasant mini-vacation.

Outstanding in every respect

5 on April 17, 2011

WE were surprised to meet Aaron, the new owner upon arrival, but found that nothing had changed from the fine service we previously had received and breakfast was especially superb.

Charming inn in Akron, PA

3.8 on March 29, 2011

Bella Vista Bed & Breakfast is a lovely late 19th century home in a quiet neighborhood. The rooms are cosy and comfortable. Aaron, our host, was very hospitable and friendly. He was helpful in providing information about area restaurants and called the restaurant we chose to ask for a discount for us. Breakfast was delicious.

Perfect Choice

3.6 on March 28, 2011

My brother and I were in town on business and needed a reasonable room for a couple nights stay. Bed and breakfasts are always nice to stay in while traveling so after a lot of research we chose the Bella Vista. We were greeted by the new Innkeeper with enthusiasm. The room was perfect for our needs and the place was nice and clean. Aaron hooked us up with a couple of nice places to go for dinner and went out of his way to make us a special breakfast each morning. If you're headed to the area, I'd recommend giving this place a try.

First experience

3.4 on February 09, 2011

This was mine and my fiances first time to a bed and breakfast. We enjoyed our stay very much! The breakfast was phenomenal and Aaron was very friendly. The room was so adorable we stayed in the Bella Vista room and it was very country living chic:0) which i absolutely LOVE!

A very enjoyable stay!!

Our hosts were very friendly and personable. Their concern for our needs while we were guests in their house was very commendable. Jeff and Sarah are courteous and very attentive, they were the reason our stay was so outstanding. We would definetely return and recommend to our friends the Bella Vista B & B.

A lovely place

4.2 on October 28, 2010

We enjoyed our stay very much. Located centrally to a lot of Lancaster County PA tourist sites. The room was lovely, well furnished, warm and comfortable. Excellent breakfast served each morning and better than standard breakfast faire. Plenty to eat and you will not leave hungry! Nice couple are running the place and very knowledgeable of the area tourist sites.

Great stay
