Bella Vista is located on five-acres of equestrian property across from boutique vineyards yet close enough to the city to enjoy the best of both worlds. Nestled amongst large estate homes, you will find serenity in this 4000 sq ft vacation home with 6-bedrooms 4.5-baths, with two full kitchens and living areas located near the top of Parrett Mountain. It is a perfect place to call home away from home.
The Location: This vacation home has amazing views and a private location yet it is conveniently located 30 minutes south of downtown Portland and 15 minutes north of the heart of the Willamette Valley Wine Country, Dundee. This private estate home is situated in an exclusive area with magnificent views but only 10 minutes from a large grocery store and Costco. This up-scale vacation home is ideal for attending equestrian events and wine country events or for exploring other area attractions including Mount Hood, the Beautiful Oregon Coast, and the famous Multnomah Falls.
The Property: This equestrian property is recently updated with beautiful amenities including slab granite and custom furnishings. The home is perfect for family and multi-family vacations, corporate retreats, small weddings, family reunions, and other special occasions. Upon arriving you are welcomed by the stunning views, in which to enjoy the fresh clean air and serenity of the area.
The Home: Bella Vista boasts in comfort. The main area is central for gathering the group or super relaxing to dive into a good book. The main attraction is the deck which over looks the riding arena and serene views including two vineyards and a pond. Every room has a view! Up a short flight of stairs you will find the master with a memory foam King bed with a large tile shower, the second bedroom is also a memory foam Queen bed, and the third bedroom upstairs has two twin beds. Also located on this level is another beautifully remodeled full bathroom with a nice tub for soaking. At the far end of the home is yet another memory foam Queen bedroom and full bathroom overlooking the garden area.

Guest Quarters: Very chic and fully furnished attached 2 bedroom guest unit. A true delight only available to Bella Vista main house guests. This space has big picture windows, a fully equipped kitchen and with a comfy living area. Both beds are memory foam; one king size and one queen. This space makes the entire house a 6 bedroom and 4.5 bathroom with two kitchens and two living spaces, simply a great addition for a large group.
The Amenities: Hiking trails out the back door, more hiking nearby and bring your bikes for your touring pleasure. We can arrange for private wine tours, a chef to cook your meals and make all your restaurant reservations. We have beautiful stables for you to view the horses.
This place has heart! In fact, our heart and Bella Vista is alive with the beauty of horses, gardens and peace. We have enjoyed traveling to other VRBO homes and are excited to welcome you to ours.
Owner/Manager Barbara Livingston purchased this house in 2003
The location of Bella Vista suits so many different experiences, from wine tasting, to family reunions, to graduation events, equestrian events and accommodations for both owners and horses, to simple a place to come and get away from it all.
Walking amongst the fresh air of the Oregon country side along with the access to all the wonderful site seeing this gorgeous state offers. You can take in wine tasting, hiking, biking and shopping tax free!
I'm very late with writing this review but don't let that discourage you from renting this fabulous house. Nine of us (family and friends) stayed here with perfect accommodations and spectacular views! How does coffee in the morning overlooking a horse farm and stunning mountain views appeal to you? Short drives to beautiful (and tasty!) wineries.
The owners was more than gracious and helpful with lots of things to do around the area. If only we had planned more days...
This home worked perfectly for our family reunion. It has everything you need to make meals, lots of outdoor space for people to hang out and tons of room inside. I was afraid we would not all fit in one space but this was not the case - the living room is very large and accommodated us all. Really close to wineries with one across the street. What makes the place great however is the owner who went out of her way to assist us in driving directions, winery recs, and even helped with a babysitter.
This home was the perfect fit for our recent trip! We traveled with a larger group, and we had plenty of space to spread out and live comfortably for the week. The well-stocked kitchen allowed us to make meals at home, and the proximity to restaurants and stores gave us the option of dining out if we wanted. The property provided the perfect mix of country living with modern amenities. Check in/out was a breeze, and Barbara was extremely helpful and accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay!
This is a great, very large home that is suitable for a large group. We had 11 people and the only time we were crowded was sitting at the dining room table! The home is beautifully decorated, well appointed and stocked, the beds and furniture are very comfortable, the views are breathtaking, and it is perfectly situated for wine tasting, sight seeing and shopping. I would highly recommend this property Only 2 things need some attention: Most of the TVs don't work (according to the owner). This didn't bother us, but it might others. The other thing is there was so much garbage in the outside bins, that it was very difficult for us to find a place to take out the trash.
Our group (6 cyclists) used Barbara's Bella Vista as a base to explore the Willamette wine country. The house and location exceeded our expectations. The house with 6 bedrooms gave all of us privacy and space; the south facing deck was great for lounging with a beverage after our rides; Barbara was an amazing host.
The location, just 30 minutes from Portland, was perfect as a base to ride from, either to the Coast or explore winding roads around McMinneville. The pinot's were all excellent. Barbara arranged a couple of private wine tastings, one of which (Quailhurst) was a block away. The visit and the wine were excellent. Barbara also gave us recommendations for terrific restaurants in the area, all a convenient distance.
We were initially going to cycle the Napa area but this was a far better choice; no fog and little traffic.
Our big group of 12 or more have rented homes in Napa, Sonoma and the central California coast for winetasting weekends. Had never been to Oregon wine country and was so happy with Bella Vista--comfortable, beautiful decor, clean, lots of room to spread out, well-stocked kitchen, peaceful setting. I was grateful that owner Barbara was so easy to work with since we'd never been to the area! She gave us lists of markets and their favorite restaurants in the area (we had a breakfast and a lunch at Clancys Sports Bar in Sherwood--very good food and friendly people). She suggested we use Jeff of Oregon Select Wine Tours as our driver to the wineries. He knew the area so well and somehow took us to wonderful wineries that weren't at all crowded on one of their busiest weekends of the year, even reserving private tastings at a few wineries for our group during a time wineries generally don't do private tastings! One of our favorite wineries of the weekend is just a stroll down the road from the house--Quailhurst. We will definitely be back one day!!
