Bella Vista Bed and Breakfast History
Bob and Kathleen Ash purchased the property that is now the Bella Vista Bed and Breakfast in June of 2005. After enjoying the property for a year, the couple decided the five acres was more than just land, it was an experience that needed to be shared. The Bella Vista Bed and Breakfast Estate is graced with romantic architectural columns, stunning art, and beautiful antiques. Most of the rooms have a panoramic view of the Coloma/Lotus Valley and American River.
Kathleen has always had a heart of hospitality with a career history as a flight attendant. Her home always had the reputation for being the neighborhood “get-together” spot. Starting a Bed and Breakfast in Coloma Lotuswas the perfect way to share both the beauty of the property and Kathleen’s heart to serve others. Bob is a very creative contractor with an eye for detail. He has transformed the property from a typical El Dorado County landscape to a relaxing oasis complete with ponds, streams, and waterfalls. Bob and Kathleen were the dynamic duo that created Bella Vista Bed and Breakfast to be what it is today.
