    Beautiful sunset views. Very helpful hosts. Lovely time for us. Suggest 4 wheel drive in freezing rain or snowy weather.

    Bella Vista was everything we could have hoped for not far off the beaten path. We loved the roominess of the apartment with a full kitchen and sliders across the back which offered spectacular views from 3000' up in the Western Carolina mountains. Angelo and Brenda offer an absolutely new space in which to stay and play in Whittier. It has an atmosphere that exudes peace and harmony with nature. there were lots of chairs on which to lounge, or to sit on while toasting marshmallows over the fire pit. When the day is done and the lights go out all you hear is silence in your own North Carolina retreat. Comfortable bed/bedding and lots of storage for clothes and anything else. My wife and I thoroughly loved our days and nights at Bella Vista and will encourage all our friends to book this incredibly relaxing and wonderful place.

  • Perfect weekend getaway


    We thoroughly enjoyed this property with the beautiful view of mountains and sunsets. It’s very close to restaurants, shopping and Harrahs Casino. A quiet setting and comfortable, clean well appointed rental made our weekend perfect!

    My husband and I needed a quiet get away and we got one. We had incredible views to wake up to and incredible sunsets to watch. The home was beautiful and had a lot of literature of things to do in the area.

  • Peaceful, very clean


    We arrived much later than expected and my husband was greeted by one of the property owners. The property is well-lit and “off the grid.” We had no issues navigating once the contact emailed the directions. GPS would not have gotten us there, but we absolutely loved that! Everything was provided that we needed, the property was very clean, and the view was beautiful. It was quiet and wonderful. We had so much fun exploring, and the cheat sheets left at the house helped us find great places to eat and explore! We would love to stay again. Thank you to Brenda, Angela, and Paige! It was perfect!
