Our Story

The Stewards

Eric and Abby

Welcome home to the Bella Vista! We are so excited to have the opportunity to host you and share the beauty of the Bella Vista with you.  Our journey began as students at Colorado State University where we met and fell in love. 10 years later we married, started a family, and became the humble stewards of Bella Vista! 

Since taking over the Estate in 2016, the Bella Vista has completely transformed to what it deserves to be; a true sanctuary that is beautiful both inside and out.  It has been a labor of love and we want nothing more than for you to come and connect with those who are closest to you. When we are not dreaming of what the future holds for the Estate, we love hiking, biking, skiing, camping and spending time with our two young children.  We hope that you will come some day and enjoy this beautiful slice of heaven that we call home!

Estate Manager

I recently moved to Steamboat Springs from Aspen after getting engaged to my soon to be husband, Jeff. I grew up in the Roaring Fork Valley and am a Colorado native.

Most recently, I was overseeing the operations of a large private estate on Aspen Mountain. Prior to that I was in hospitality/residential sales and real estate sales in the Aspen Valley, corporate retreat and adventure travel in Taos, New Mexico, and wine education in Napa and Sonoma Valleys.

I’m fortunate to be able to spend my free time skiing, snowboarding, dirt biking and exploring the mountains I have grown up in! These have been passions of mine from a very young age.

I was drawn to this role for many reasons… hospitality, customer service, sales and building relationships with clients runs deep in my blood. This role will combine all of my past experience and give me the opportunity to create lifelong memories for all of our future guests. I also love the mission of Bella Vista Estate to bring people together for quality time and connection as well as their goal of involvement and giving back to the community.
