About Abby Schissler

Bella Vista is an oasis to be shared! Our heart beat is "bringing it back to Eden"- back to simplicity and connecting with ourselves, one another, and nature/beauty/God- whatever you connect with! To have the chance to re-connect with what really matters in life is a gift that we don't often give ourselves. The Bella Vista team is full of hospitable, loving people where our #1 goal is to provide your group with an unforgettable experience!

Abby Schissler purchased this Estate in 2016

Why Abby Schissler chose Steamboat Springs

When we dreamed of owning a retreat center, our dreams weren't even as great as the Bella Vista. I have traveled all over the world and never been to a destination as serene, peaceful and beautiful. This awe inspiring land boasts the most incredible sunsets, wonderful amenities, and a private atmosphere that is unparalleled. Come experience the magic for yourself!

What makes this Estate unique

Being at a gated estate provides complete freedom to make the vacation of a lifetime come alive! The options of what to do each day are endless! Most of our guests plan excursions into Steamboat but are most happy just staying on site, enjoying and being with the people who matter most.

In addition to the breathtaking views and amazing property, it's the perfect place to escape for a true weekend of fun and relaxation. The perfect place for a corporate retreat or a bachelor/bachelorette weekend!

                                                                        Colorado's best kept secret

Tons of space for hosting any kind of event. A totally private and remote location with a breath-taking view. Wonderful staff and a huge kitchen/dining area. Once you are on the BV grounds there is no need to venture out, unless you want to ski:)

                                                                        Our Incredible Adventure to the Bella Vista

This estate was absolutely ideal and we can't wait to return. The location was perfect - completely remote and incredibly scenic overlooking the beautiful mountains. Plus, the the accommodations and crew at the estate were fantastic! They were helpful, fun and made our visit welcoming! The estate was also nicely maintained and extremely clean. Again, we can not express enough how awesome our trip to the Bella Vista was and how excited we are to return. Thank you, Bella Vista!

                                                                        We couldn't have asked for a better getaway. The scenery was gorgeous and easy to enjoy on the wonderful decks of the houses or at the fire pit or by the pool. There were board games suitable for a range of ages, a billiards table, arcade game, and foosball table, which (along with the swimming pool) kept kids ranging from ages 3 to 12 entertained for the week. There is easy access to Steamboat Springs, and Jeff and Sal were able to offer excellent advice about different activities that were available there. The Estate provided a pack-n-play for our infant, and the layout of the Estate made it easy for everyone to hang out together or retreat for some privacy.

                                                                        The Perfect Corporate Retreat!

They were so gracious to even help us book lunches and provide transportation to and from dinner one night! Located a little outside of Steamboat's main street, the views were unbelievable and it was quiet and peaceful for our group to really be in our own world. I would recommend this to anyone coming to town and will hopefully we back next year!

During that time we have stayed at many properties in and around Steamboat. We are a large group and it is hard to find adequate accommodations without splitting up the group. Bella Vista is a unique property since it can house a lot of people comfortably and it has an amazing vibe to it. Everyone agreed that this was overall the best property we had been to. The views were incredible, great privacy, and plenty of room to relax. The caretakers (Sal and Jeff) were kind, caring and went above and beyond to guarantee we had a great experience. We intend to return to Bella Vista in the coming years!

In addition to world-class fly fishing, we have some of the best biking, hiking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and white water rafting in the country. We were just rated the eighth top resort town in North America with wonderful nightlife, hot-springs and endless activities such as the Alpine slide, tubing, nature walking and horseback riding. Our property has a regulation size tennis court with night lighting and a heated outdoor pool in addition to our beautiful indoor grotto.
