The Lowdown Venue Setting
Perched above the majestic Yampa River Valley with the Flat Top Mountains in the distance, our 7-acre property offers the most amazing Rocky Mountain view imaginable. Our unique corner of Northwest Colorado offers the quintessential Rocky Mountain escape to rejuvenate, relax, and reconnect. We’ve made it our mission to offer every group who visits the Bella Vista a home base of peace and privacy with service and attention to detail that are second to none. We are changing the status quo in hospitality, one group at time, so that our guests leave our property with clear minds, grounded hearts, and deeper connections with those who shared in the Bella Vista experience.
