Our group loved the view and the modern appliances in the home.

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 7 moms that stayed in Bella Vista for a girls weekend. We loved the view, and the spaciousness of the house. There were three bathrooms and the bedrooms were great with a TV in each room. We also appreciated having wifi. The house was everything you could want. One evening we ate in Kingston and the other day we went to Hyde Park for the historical sites. The house was very clean, the beds were comfortable, and we enjoyed evenings by the fireplace.

Bella Vista Indeed!!

  • 5 of 5

... And so much more!! We enjoyed five nights at Bella Vista for our son's wedding at nearby Red Maple Vineyard. As previous reviewers have remarked the location is ideal in that you're between the towns of New Paltz and Kingston and yet about a 15 minute scenic drive from either. The home is beautiful, comfortable and with plenty of extras to help you feel at home. Everyone slept well and waking to the gorgeous view each morning was priceless. As an added bonus we had a breakfast the morning after the wedding and had plenty of space and seating on the large back deck for our 30 guests. The well stocked kitchen made serving simple as there was an abundance of platters and serving implements too. Oh, and for phenomenal bagels go to Sunrise Bagels in Kingston :)

A beautiful home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Bella Vista is an amazing and comfortable home. The views are outstanding and the outdoor space is a lovely bonus to the well crafted house. The hosts are great as well! I’d recommend Bella Vista for anyone looking for a relaxing getaway with access to upstate amenities.

I just got home from a wonderful long weekend at Bella Vista. A group of 10 women enjoyed every second at this gorgeous home. The views are breathtaking!!!! The photos on the website don't do it justice. It's even better in person.The interior was decorated beautifully (they have redecorated the main living room since the photo on the website was taken). The bedrooms were roomy and we had more than enough rooms and beds. No one felt cramped AT ALL! The kitchen has everything you need. The owner was extremely prompt when I messaged her questions before our arrival. They supplied fresh wood for an outdoor or indoor fire. It was perfection!!!!!!!!!

Happy weekend at Bella Vista

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented Bella Vista so we could provide a nice place to stay for ourselves and 9 friends and family members on the weekend of our son's wedding. The rehearsal dinner was in Poughkeepsie and the wedding was at Red Maple Vineyard in West Park. Initially, we were concerned that Bella Vista would be a little remote, but, in fact, the drive times were easy and, for safety, we hired a van and driver to ferry the group to and from the big events. We came to appreciate the quiet and tranquility the place provided - a welcome contrast to the high energy of the wedding. Bella Vista is a beautiful, comfortable home that easily accommodated our group. It was immaculate and well equipped. The back deck offered a fantastic view to the west across a broad valley to the Catskill mountains, truly a bella vista. We enjoyed our happy weekend at Bella Vista and highly recommend it.

What a beautiful place! Went with family and it is the most restful setting to relax with people and feel nature around you. It is very kid friendly and there are a lot of places to sit and read. There were 14 adults and 3 children and we all had plenty of room. Spectacular!
