“Truly Beyond Just a Place to Eat and Sleep”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

I am sure that you have noticed that every Casa Bella Inn review that was written prior to this one was very positive. I am also sure that every review following this one will also be extremely positive. There is a definite reason for this. There are no negative reviews is because this has to be one of the best modestly priced B&B Inns in all of New England. My granddaughter and I are skiers. We have spent many Presidents' Day holiday weeks in New England B&B’s, so we know what we are talking about. Skiers tend to require just good food and a comfortable place to sleep. But the Casa Bella Inn goes way beyond those two requirements. The hosts, Susan and Franco, are warm, extremely hospitable, and also quite engaging. They have developed the knack of efficiently managing a top-notch B&B, being fantastic hosts, while simultaneously feeding you well and ensuring your privacy when you desire quiet moments.
Let me tell you about this place called Casa Bella Inn. It was initially built as an Inn and goes back as far as 1835. Susan and Franco have owned and managed the Inn for approximately ten years. The renovations made under their management have modernized the inn without destroying its 19th century character. They turned it into a home away from home, and focused on making the inn warm and inviting. In the parlor (or living room) the stuffed sofas and chairs beckon you to come in and sit down. And when you do sit down, you will find them extremely comfortable. After a hard day of skiing, I had to make sure that I wouldn’t slump over and fall asleep. The original pot-bellied stove that use to provide heat for the entire inn during the 19th century has been refurbished and has a place of honor in the living room.
The inn’s bedrooms were not only immaculate; they were also very tastefully decorated. My “picky-picky” teenage granddaughter loved our room so much that she didn’t miss or ask to watch television. During the latter part of the evenings we sat on our room’s very comfortable rug and played such board games as scrabble (which we borrowed from the living room’s inventory of many board games).
And then there were the meals. Franco is an absolute gourmet chef when it comes to meals. His omelets were perfectly cooked and delicious. His waffles were light and fluffy. And you must have at least one evening meal prepared by Franco. I recommend that you ask Franco to prepare for you his signature dish of Shrimp Fra Diavolo, accompanied with his black bean soup. I guarantee you that this dish is a real gourmet experience.
When you stay at Casa Bella Inn, you feel that you are experiencing the best of two ages; the grandness and semi-opulence of staying at a 19th century inn, while simultaneously having all the modern conveniences of 2012 that make an overnight stay comfortable. My granddaughter and I attempt to ski at different places each year for the Presidents’ Day holidays. She has already asked if we can return to Casa Bella next year. I have already agreed and promised her that if God is willing and everything goes well for us in 2013, we will definitely visit again. In closing, I suggest that you visit Casa Bella Inn in the very near future. Susan and Franco may be contemplating retirement, and the prospect of lodging at Casa Bella Inn should be experienced by every seasoned traveler who does not have money to waste.

Thank you so very much for a wonderful review. We can't tell you how much we enjoyed "your" stay with us and how lovely your granddaughter is. It was our greatest pleasure and will treasure your visit always. Our very best wishes, Susan and Franco

My son and I were traveling back from Stowe and we needed a place to stay when visiting friends in nearby Stockbridge and we found Casa Bella! We met Susan and Franco, the inn keepers, the most wonderful people. When we got up this morning, chef Franco served us the best french toasts! It was really a treat and would have love to stay a little longer but we needed to get back to Connecticut. I highly recommend Casablanca Bella; the rooms are clean, 8 miles from Killington, the inn keepers are wonderfull, and breakfast is excellent ...all of that at a reasonable price! We will definitely go back and visit. Bellisimo!

I was part of a large wedding group that became stranded in Pittsfield last week. Many of us had only planned on staying for 2 or 3 nights. Due to road damage we were stuck at this beautiful, well kept B&B for 3 nights. The entire town lost power and running water. The innkeepers, Susan and Franco went above and beyond to make us feel safe, happy, and well cared for. They made us warm meals every night. The set up a generator so that we could take showers. They now have power back and the town has put in such tremendous clean up efforts that they are up and running at full capacity. This town is the Vermont real deal- no gimmicks. Amazing views, wonderful people. The Casa Bella puts you in the center of an authentic Vermont vacation. We were lucky to have such a spot during a trying ordeal. And we plan on returning again and again, especially to see the incredible fall foliage.

Our hosts spoiled us from the time we arrived to our departure...and more ( have kept in touch on recipe exchanges since!). The Inn is superbly located in a typical old Vermont town 'between the hills'. The 'feel' of the place, both the Inn and the town, make you want to sit down and relax. The only thing surpassing the 'being there' is the 'eating there'.... Franco's Italian dishes compete with the best, and are 'customized' for you on site. What a great stay and an incredible welcome from our hosts. Have to go back and walk the village green again, and again, etc..... Bravo to the Casa Bella!!!!

What a great B&B! Hosts Susan and Franco are so down-to-earth you feel like you've known them for years. Susan manages the home with her lovely English hospitality and Franco dishes out tasty plates from his native Italy. You truly get the best of both worlds. This B&B is a must stay if your in the area!
