2021 Bella Vista Renovation Highlights

Bella Vista has always been a magical destination that offers peace, serenity, privacy and is sure to provide memories you will never forget. The breathtaking mountain town venue is ideal for hosting weddings, retreats, reunions, and large group lodging tailored for an unforgettable Colorado experience. This year, the Bella Vista closed for the first time during the winter season in order to complete major renovation projects.  The Bella Vista’s Steamboat family has been hard at work remodeling, upgrading, and improving the property for our guests. It is our goal to make the property as stunning on the inside as the surrounding mountain landscape. We want each detail to be as perfect as an aspen tree twinkling in the afternoon sunlight. Here are some of the renovation projects that we’re excited to share from 2021.

Main Lodge Master Bathroom Complete Revamp

One beautiful new revamp at Bella Vista, among eight total remodeled bathrooms, was the master suite bathroom. We’ve doubled the square footage, added an elegant copper tub, a 7’ shower with dual heads and body sprays, and a gorgeous vanity area for bridesmaids to get ready together. It’s essential to us that couples have this beautiful space to share while starting their life together. Small local touches like bath bombs from Rocky Mountain Soap are sure to help you soak your cares away. The new clean design and well thought out space brings that whole experience together and will make your special day that much more glorious.

Lower Cottage Remodel

Another modern Bella Vista improvement was the Lower Cottage on the property, which offers a great privacy option for multiple families. The complete remodel includes new wood trim and doors, modern glass shower doors, new mirrors, hardware, and a much-needed ADA-accessible bedroom and bathroom for handicap-accessible and senior guests. We’re thrilled to now have a handicap-accessible area for individuals who use wheelchairs to rest and bathe in safety and comfort. Having ADA-accessible group lodging is an important feature we are excited to provide for every group’s convenience. We transformed this space from a humble accommodation into one of the more updated accommodations on the estate. 

Cottage Kitchens Remodeled & Updated

The Bella Vista cottage kitchens have a beautiful new look and feel! We’ve upgraded to stainless steel appliances, added quartz countertops, installed new sinks and fixtures, added new sliding barn doors, and are slated to re-stain the cabinetry this winter. This updated space allows groups to prepare quick meals and snacks before gathering in the main lodge for large family meals. When all of your guests have the space and comfort they need, it ensures everyone truly enjoys their vacation. The upgraded cottage kitchens are particularly appealing for families with young kids that will need to prep meals and snacks more often or at different hours than the entire family at large.

Thrilling Outdoor Upgrade Coming in 2022!

A HUGE amenity upgrade is coming in summer 2022, but we can’t tell you what it is yet! This will be the most significant upgrade to the Bella Vista Estate in the last 20 years. By making upgrades to our 10,000 square foot venue, you can be sure your next special event will be comfortable, elegant, and unforgettable. Not only is Steamboat Springs the best mountain town in Colorado for its charming appeal, but Bella Vista, surrounded by National Forest, with its stunning views, is the perfect escape for any wedding, special event, or large group lodging. We are excited to host you at the Bella Vista Estate!
