As a professional wedding photographer, I can honest reccomend this location not just for lodging, but for the design and careful planning to details that make it a great loacation for weddings. There are many places in short walking distance for some amazing wedding portraits, group photos and or course the ceremony. Great deck with stunning views.
The staff was constantly on top of things, making sure things went smooth and communicated with the guests the entire weekend.
Lots for the guests to do as well, pool, hot tub, nice activity yard and plenty near by. Great places to dine and shop in downtown area, just 8 miles away!
We had the most perfect week at Bella Vista! The views are incredible, post card worthy! When we arrived there was hot chocolate and cookies and every day they filled a giant water pitcher with ice and oranges for us to stay hydrated during our stay. The house (houses) were cozy and stocked with EVERYTHING that you would need....and the kitchen is stocked with 2 of everything you would need (literally...2 crockpots, 2 toasters, 2 coffee makers, huge serving trays, a million cups and plates, etc). The sledding and snow shoeing on property made for fun mornings and afternoons for the kids...and adults. The property managers Ryan and Alyssa were so sweet, responded immediately with anything we needed and the shuttle was extremely useful!!! There is so much to do in Steamboat....but with the game room and bar and games for the kids, we didn't really need to leave the house much other than to ski! Our family would love to go back in the summer and take advantage of the pool and tennis courts!! If you get a chance, this is the place to stay. We feel very lucky to have stayed here and also love that the owners donate a portion of your deposit back to community organizations. Just a really great property and great people.
Bella Vista is an amazing place! It is spacious, immaculate, and comfortably housed our extended family for a wedding weekend. Each bedroom in the main lodge and cottages had a separate bathroom so everyone had their own comfortable and private space while the common dining and game areas were large and welcoming for all. The pool is fantastic and the grounds, views, and added string lights and decor create a magical feel. Alyssa and Ryan were wonderful, and cheerfully and quickly took care of our special requests for our grandchildren, and thoughtfully brought out games and gifts for them. They also made pizza and food runs into the village for us! All the Bella Vista staff were responsive and delightful to work with as we planned this very special weekend which included hosting the rehearsal cookout on the property! We will definitely look forward to coming back for another family reunion very soon!
Bella Vista was used for our closing ceremony of our conference. Fantastic views. Wonderful accommodations.
A group of us stayed at Bella Vista for the holidays. It is a great property with lots of privacy and panoramic views to the West. Large groups are easily accommodated with the versatile living arrangement possibilities. Friendly owners and staff make your stay enjoyable and stress free with their service offerings.
