Bella Vista is appropriately named, the views are second to none. Five couples from around the country met at Bella Vista to go to the Army/AFA game. Even though it is 45 miles away, make sure to leave at least an additional hour to get into the parking area. The other wonderful parts of the house are the 5 bedrooms with incredible cozy, comfortable beds and the fully stocked kitchen and dining area where we could all eat together. My only regret was that the weather wasn't nicer to enjoy the beautiful back deck with it's amazing views. Hoping we can return for a reunion in the coming years.

Bella Vista is exactly that--muy buena vista!!

  • 5 of 5

Even pictures cannot capture how amazing the views and property are. Everything was perfect. My children and grandchildren (12 of us) were at Bella Vista over the weekend to celebrate the life and birthday of my late husband--their father and grandfather. What a wonderful place to gather, eat, talk, and play. While there were so many things to visit and do in and around the area, we really didn't want to leave the comforts of this beautiful (and very interesting) home. We loved every minute of our stay. We can't wait to plan our visit next year and venture out to explore more of the area. Thank you for a wonderful retreat!!

Our Amazing Get Away at Bella Vista

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about our Bella Vista stay. The home was amazingly beautiful and very comfortable for all of us. We rented for a week and were a family group ranging from 3 on some days and as much as 10 on others. Wish we could have stayed longer. The peacefulness and serenity there was a very welcome break from our hectic city lives. Plenty of space. Plenty to do without leaving the gorgeous property and breathtaking view! Everything we needed was there for our family. Outside games and access to water to cool off on hot days. BBQ, air conditioning, 4 bathrooms, spacious bedrooms, full kitchen, TV, Wi-Fi, I could go on! Hope we can make this an annual trip! We made many happy family memories in your home! Thank you Alexandra for your help in planning and providing prompt and courteous responses to our questions!!

Beautiful and Well-Equipped House with a stunning Hudson River View

  • 5 of 5

Our 15-person group had a fantastic time at the aptly named Bella Vista. The views from the back porch of the Hudson River are stunning and the sunsets are magical. The house has a well-equipped and large kitchen, multiple porches, soccer, volleyball, a firepit and numerous beautiful bedrooms. While we were there, we took advantage of the nearby wine tasting and kayaking. While we were kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding, we had a chance to see waterfalls and bald eagles! The house also has AC, which is great because while we were there it was a humid 95 degrees outside, and the house stayed very cool and comfortable.
