Why Abby Schissler chose Northwest Colorado

What an amazing location...on top of the world...yet so close to all the activities and downtown.

What makes this estate unique

Our guests say it best - “The Bella Vista is truly paradise! What an amazing location...on top of the world...yet so close to all the activities and downtown. The caretakers are fantastic, and a great source of information. The property is stunning! When they say private they are not kidding - it is gated and only books one group at a time. The pool and fire pit areas are perfect for gathering large groups. This place has a magic that truly brings people together! “

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for having us. The Bella Vista is truly a magical place but most important is the special time spent with the family. Thank you for your generosity, thoughfulness and kindness. We will be back! We love you all.

Absolutely worth the trip! 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

  • 5 of 5

I am in love! This estate is outrageous!? Beautiful grounds and luxurious indoor environments. 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

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to everyone at the Bella Vista! Our visit the other weekend was incredible. 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!

Ideal Reunion Setting

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

Jeff and Sal were excellent hosts! We had a group of 22 and had the perfect amount of space for everyone. 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!

Winter Bliss

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been celebrating New years in Steamboat for 15 years running. 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!
