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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was able to find the property that has a six bedroom version. We only needed the four bedroom. Wow, this property has a bunch of reviews on the other listing. All I can say is Ditto to all the other reviews. Thanks Barbara you made our Valentine trip so memorable. Loved the bio-dynamic winery tours!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this location for a leadership retreat for several singles and one couple. The room layout worked well. The location was perfect. An "out in the country" feel with amazing views yet close enough to both Portland, Beaverton, Sherwood or Newberg to get where we needed to go. The space was highly usable and the kitchen made group meal prep easy. We received a warm welcome from the owner, Barbara and were left to our own knowing she was within call if we needed anything. I highly recommend this location.

Is this heaven? No, it's Bella Vista!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of eight came together from Seal Beach, CA, San Diego, CA, Maryland and New Jersey. It is not easy to find accommodations of four or more bedrooms. Bella Vista was the exception with two properties listed, one with four bedrooms and one with six. A quick 25 minute drive from Portland International Airport and we arrived anticipating a nice home. Bella Vista is a whole lot more.

We had not vacationed in Oregon before. What we experienced far exceeded our expectations. Bella Vista reads well in its descriptive. In real life its far more beautiful. Our group - Cohen's, Rullo's, Frey's and Massucci's enjoyed ourselves each day of our visit.

We enjoyed wine tours, terrific restaurants even a trip to the coast. On the weekend we arrived we visited Portland to shop at the Saturday Farmers Market and were thrilled to find ourselves in the middle of the Rose Parade downtown. A short drive from downtown and we were able to witness the beauty and awe of Multnomah Falls in the Columbia River Gorge.

The property description was spot on accurate. We remarked how well maintained and spotless the accommodations were. The surrounding landscapes were spectacular. Oregon is a state of immense beauty and 'green' vistas. Bella Vista has it all. The home, the guest house, the stables - all remarkable. But the landscaping was far above that. Lawns, pastures and hanging garden pieces all pristine. The house is spacious, all the bedrooms lovely and tasteful. The bedrooms were designer furnished and all the beds comfortable.

I am a great cook and was impressed by how well laid out and equipped the kitchen is. I loved cooking for our group of eight there.

The property owner responded within hours to all inquiries and questions. In addition, the property owner stopped by on our arrival date to welcome us.

Bella Vista is ideally situated for daily trips, quick restaurant visits, great supermarkets and of course stellar vineyards.

Our group of cousins is looking forward to coming back to Bella Vista at a future time. We highly recommend this property for a vacation getaway.

A reunion in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have chosen a better place to have our cousin reunion than Bella Vista! Barbara has created an oasis among the vineyards and horse farms of Sherwood. From the well stocked kitchen to the inviting deck overlooking rolling hills and horses, to the comfortable bedrooms and updated baths, look no further. Just a short walk to an award winning vineyard, wine tastings and a short drive to amazing restaurants, this vacation rental is top notch. Check out you won't be dissappointed!

Wonderful House for Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

This house provides all the amenities needed for a group gathering, several bedrooms with really comfortable mattresses, a well appointed kitchen with everything you might need, a great gathering place on the deck (with a nice heater) and in the living room. Just perfect. The owner was so friendly and helpful.
