About the property

6 Bdrm 4.5 bath 3 night minimum

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Thank you!!!!! For the opportunity to spend this long weekend in your beautiful home at Bella Vista! It's SO comfortable, you have thought of every touch and comfort possible and the cleanliness and "presentation" was stunning. We felt so relaxed and pampered here. You are an amazing "hostess".

We would (and will) highly recommend Bella Vista! I've had a hard time writing the review so please post this note if you can.

An amazing retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 9 women rented this house for our annual reunion. The house accommodated us easily, providing enough space for everyone. The living room and dining room were large enough for us all to gather in comfort. We cooked dinner several evenings and the kitchen was well equipped. The house itself has beautiful furnishings and feels like a home, not like a rental. The property is beautifully maintained and the outdoor living spaces are magnificent. The owner made sure that all of our needs were met. While you feel like you are out in the country, in fact you are just minutes away from shopping, vineyards and other services. We would rent this house again.

A Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

The house was comfortable for eleven adults and one child. It was spotless. Nothing needed repairs. We never tired of gazing at the spectacular grounds.

Having horses for (neigh)bors was an extra feature.

We might have enjoyed a pool or hot tub, and might have made use of a playroom, but the proximity to woods and wineries, and with a stretch, the beaches and mountains, had us out and about more than enough to compensate.

The owner was always available, solicitous and close by.

This was a property we could well revisit in years to come.

Wonderful space for our family gathering to celebrate a graduation.

  • 5 of 5

Our family came together to celebrate our son's graduation from medical school. We had family of all ages and our dog.

Barbara was gracious and very helpful in arranging the details for the visit.

The home is beautiful and perfect for a family get together and for entertaining.

We really liked staying just out of the city. It was so relaxing. To a person everyone exclaimed about how perfect it was for all of us getting together.

I loved how well the kitchen was stocked.

We loved the fire pit. Family had a great time late into the night without worrying about bothering neighbors.

We catered two meals which worked perfectly with the kitchen and layout. I will miss the heated kitchen floors!

The downstairs rooms have their own kitchenette, seating area, bathroom and door to the outdoor.

Barbara sends very detailed instructions which are helpful and important in order to properly take care of the home while you're there.

She is often on the property taking care of the horses and stables and is readily available if questions or needs arise.

The communication was quick and complete.

I enthusiastically recommend this lovely home for your group.

5 Acres of Beauty!

  • 5 of 5

With our parents gone, and after selling their home and meeting place in San Diego, my brothers and I had to decide where we could meet for a family reunion. We settled on Portland, Oregon and started looking for houses to rent. We came across this gem and thought is was perfect in pictures. It is even more beautiful in person! There is plenty of room for everyone. We had 11 people staying at the house and with 6 bedrooms, a deck, a fire pit, and acres of land, we loved it. Once the rainy weather broke, we were able to spend time outside and enjoy the beautiful scenery, deck and fire pit. My daughter went over to the stables and spent time with the horses, which she really enjoyed. Thank you, Barbara for a wonderful place for my brothers and I to catch up and spend quality time with family in such a warm and inviting home.

Beautiful home! Well appointed....peaceful setting.

  • 5 of 5

Our family met up from three different locations for the weekend for an archery tournament in Tigard. The house exceeded our expectations! The bedrooms were large and very comfortable. Comfy mattresses and pillows...which are often overlooked. The gathering areas were spacious for our group of 9. We found everything we needed in the kitchen. The owner was very responsive when we needed her, and not intrusive when we didn't. She recommended a wonderful personal chef, Sabra, who prepared a lovely meal for us while her partner Jerry entertained us with his accordion. My grandkids were enthralled with the instrument and danced and twirled and made memories that will last forever. The setting of the house is so beautiful. Although it was very cold the weekend we were there (there were even snow flurries) the mist and the clouds over the trees and the pond were breathtaking. The grounds and the house are pristine! My Mom uses a walker and was able to navigate the few steps to the main floor bedroom. My grandchildren loved the toys, games and books that were available. The owner clearly takes pride in her property and it shows! I'm already scheming how to include Bella Vista into future vacation plans. You will not regret booking this home. Enjoy!

Beautiful ranch, spacious, awesome amenities

  • 5 of 5

Bella Vista was a very comfortable ranch (we were 10 in all and a pet). We have the utmost appreciation for how well appointed it was - from the kitchen to the bathrooms - every detail on a high end home was well thought through and provided in a grand vacation rental. The enormous property makes for great walks and interactions with the working stable and horses. The owner is a very gracious and welcoming host and helped us with intimate knowledge of Willamette Valley - from dining to wine tasting. Highly recommend this opulent get away!!
