Bella Vista is exactly that--muy buena vista!!

  • 5 of 5

Even pictures cannot capture how amazing the views and property are. Everything was perfect. My children and grandchildren (12 of us) were at Bella Vista over the weekend to celebrate the life and birthday of my late husband--their father and grandfather. What a wonderful place to gather, eat, talk, and play. While there were so many things to visit and do in and around the area, we really didn't want to leave the comforts of this beautiful (and very interesting) home. We loved every minute of our stay. We can't wait to plan our visit next year and venture out to explore more of the area. Thank you for a wonderful retreat!!

Our Amazing Get Away at Bella Vista

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about our Bella Vista stay. The home was amazingly beautiful and very comfortable for all of us. We rented for a week and were a family group ranging from 3 on some days and as much as 10 on others. Wish we could have stayed longer. The peacefulness and serenity there was a very welcome break from our hectic city lives. Plenty of space. Plenty to do without leaving the gorgeous property and breathtaking view! Everything we needed was there for our family. Outside games and access to water to cool off on hot days. BBQ, air conditioning, 4 bathrooms, spacious bedrooms, full kitchen, TV, Wi-Fi, I could go on! Hope we can make this an annual trip! We made many happy family memories in your home! Thank you Alexandra for your help in planning and providing prompt and courteous responses to our questions!!

Beautiful and Well-Equipped House with a stunning Hudson River View

  • 5 of 5

Our 15-person group had a fantastic time at the aptly named Bella Vista. The views from the back porch of the Hudson River are stunning and the sunsets are magical. The house has a well-equipped and large kitchen, multiple porches, soccer, volleyball, a firepit and numerous beautiful bedrooms. While we were there, we took advantage of the nearby wine tasting and kayaking. While we were kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding, we had a chance to see waterfalls and bald eagles! The house also has AC, which is great because while we were there it was a humid 95 degrees outside, and the house stayed very cool and comfortable.

Gorgeous Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beyond gorgeous! The view is spectacular and the home is incredibly comfortable. We stayed here with our whole family for our son's graduation and everyone had plenty of space. We drove back and forth to West Point every day (about an hour drive) and it was absolutely worth the drive. The deck and view are amazing. Everything you could possibly need is here - and there's plenty of room for everyone to sleep! The owners were gracious, helpful, and most accommodating. Book this home now!

A fabulous setting for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic girls weekend in the Hudson Valley! The house was gorgeous and the perfect location for us. We spent the weekend enjoying the local wineries and relaxing with friends. Even with 16 of us staying in the house it never felt crowded and had every possible amenity we needed. Alexandra was very helpful throughout the planning process and easy to contact with questions. I would absolutely recommend staying here!

LOVE IT!!! Beautiful inside and out!!

  • 5 of 5

I arranged a trip to Alexandra's Bella Vista with a group of 15 friends for the weekend and we all had fantastic time! The drive was only 2 hours from the city. The View of the sunset as we pulled up to the house was breathtaking! The extended front porch was perfectly located at a high point with a beautiful view of the catskill mountains and the river. The living room and all the bedrooms were decorated beautifully. There was so much culture and detail in the furninshing with little props laying around, a great collection of books to ponder upon. We experienced all types of weather during that weekend from sunny to rainy to snow and all were breathtaking. The house was fully equipped and Alexandra was very responsive and helpful providing all the information before hand so all was very smooth. I spent a lot of time researching the perfect getaway location before hand and hands down Bella Vista proved was such a special find! I would definitely like to return to this place and highly recommend it to share beautiful moments with friends and family.
