From the moment we crossed the river in our 4-wheel, to our 1 1/2-mile ride up the rocky mountain road, we knew we were in for an adventure! When we arrived, it was informal, and laid back. No paper work to fill out, or credit cards to leave on file. Bert, Bella Vista's chief, cook, and bottle washer was great. He surprised us with his culinary creations every day.
Here you can unplug, relax, and take in the magnificent vista from your room or the deck of the lodge. What an outstanding 3-day visit! We wished we could have stayed longer. Our kids (15 and 13) loved this place, and enjoyed meeting the other adventurers who seemed to pop in and out on a daily basis. Bert set us up with a horse back adventure that we will never forget. We look forward to seeing Bella Vista again.
