What Every Family Reunion is Looking For

In this day and age families are typically spread all over the country. Opportunities to get together for holidays, birthdays, and life-milestone celebrations can seem for and far between. Even when a few members of the family can get together, rarely can all of the extended family members get all together at once. Hence, your family has determined it’s time for a proper family reunion.

When my husband and I started Bella Vista Estate, our ultimate goal was to share this beautiful property with intimate groups of family and friends. As much as we love hosting weddings and corporate retreats, we absolutely adore hosting family reunions here at the estate. That’s why we decided to reserve every single July explicitly for family reunions; to encourage large families to come together to celebrate what is really important in this life.

Bringing Extended Families Together in One Space

By the time you add up all of the grandparents, aunts, uncles, and children suddenly lodging everyone in one place starts to seem like a challenge. Don’t split up family groups into separate hotels or Airbnbs. At Bella Vista Estate you can house up to 28 guests comfortably in one location, with amenities like large group kitchens, living rooms, a game room, a wet bar, an inground pool, and tennis courts. Family units can share bedrooms or guests can enjoy private accommodations. Everyone will be all together on one property. No more sending cousin Ryan to pick up Grandma and Grandpa from their hotel!

Bella Vista Estate rents exclusively to one group of guests at a time, so your family will enjoy complete privacy on the property. Our on-site caretakers will make sure you have everything you need to be comfortable and happy. Provide us with a list of preferences and arrive to find the large group kitchen fully stocked with all of your favorite snacks and meals. We even leave the cookie jar stocked with fresh chocolate chip cookies prior to your arrival.

Family Reunion Activities for Every Generation

Bringing the entire family together for a family reunion is only step one! Planning activities for all of the different age groups and interests is step two. On the estate, family members can swim and lounge poolside, play tennis on the outdoor courts, enjoy lawn games, play pool in the indoor gameroom, find a cozy place to read, or play some music by the firepit. We have games and activities available for all age groups, including children’s games, arcade games, lawn games, a pool table, and more.

When you leave the estate, you will find Steamboat Springs, Colorado offers an endless bounty of recreational and luxurious activities. Send the family adrenaline junkies mountain biking, while another group enjoys a full day of pampering at a local day spa. Meetup downtown for shopping or dining at a plethora of local shops and restaurants. Steamboat offers fine dining experiences and family-friendly restaurant atmospheres. At the end of the day go for a soak at one of two local hot springs facilities or return to Bella Vista for a private soak in the indoor grotto. Your family will not soon forget the memories made in Steamboat! A member of our concierge team will be glad to assist you in planning local activities for every age group. 

Time for Connection and Making Memories

Once the entire family is together and the activities have been planned, the only thing that is really truly important is having the time together to connect and make new memories. Don’t rush through your family vacation or get so bogged down in the logistics that you can’t actually enjoy the quality time. Bella Vista Estate makes it as easy as possible to get settled and enjoy your time together without fretting about who is staying where, who needs rides, and how you will feed everyone. Focus on what matters most and let us handle the rest.
