“Simply wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2012

My husband and I stayed Jan 14 weekend for our anniversary at the Asti room. It happened to be the Winter Wine Land event and we had so much fun there! The place is just beautiful with lots of lighting. Views from every corner of the giant house. The hosts are very knowledgeable about the area, food, wine, local business and beyond! Don't miss the happy hour, tasty cheese and very decent wine!

Room Tip: Choose the Asti room, the only room that two can enjoy the jacuzzi at the same time!

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Bella Villa Messina and it was a fantastic experience. The location is beautiful and Jerry and Harold are incredible hosts.

The B&B is located up on the top of a knoll with big sprawling decks and great views. Jerry/Harold host a cocktail hour with the guests in the early evening (which is great because that's normally sort of a "dead time" out in wine country, after the wineries close but when it's still too early to head out to dinner), and their friendliness makes everyone want to open up and get to know each other. We're not normally the super-talkative type but we met some great people during our stay at Bella Villa.

The breakfasts each morning were absurd, with huge spreads of delicious food all laid out in a beautiful fashion.

Each morning Jerry helped us map out a wine tasting gameplan for the day. He really knows his stuff and he sent us to some fantastic wineries. His knowledge of the local cuisine for dinner is equally great.

We stayed in the Sake room and slept like babies, it was very comfortable. We'll definitely be back the next time we head out to that area.

Our hosts Jerry and Harold have what is one of the nicest spots in Sonoma County, but that doesn't tell the whole story. Jerry should be titled the Mayor of Healdsburg - every suggestion he had for us was OUTSTANDING. From his recommendation of Baci (and for hooking us up with a table there) to Willi's for the next night (once again a hook up for a table) to his recommendation for the truffle fries at the Healdsburg Bar and Grill. All of the breakfasts were outstanding and the nightly happy hour is where Jerry and Harold hold court. The Asti suite is worth it as well!

My husband and I stayed two nights at Bella Villa Messina and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. From the delicious and enjoyable cocktail hour to the great advice Jerry gave us on where to eat, the wineries to go to, the fabulous breakfast, it all was very enjoyable. Highly recommended.

We rendezvoused with several couples in Healdsburg for a mini reunion and winetasting weekend. Our friends had selected Bella Villa Messina to stay. My husband and I stayed in the French Room on the first floor. It was a beautiful room, decorated with antiques and a large private bath and balcony. We were so comfortable and really felt so relaxed. We enjoyed the evening wine tasting out on the large decks with the wine country views and the fantastic breakfasts prepared by Jerry and Harold in the mornings. The breakfasts are not just any old breakfasts either. The proprietors get up early in the morning and make it from scratch with local ingredients from the Farmer's market...I have never tasted such flavorful heirloom tomatoes.It truly was a memorable experience and we would go back in a heartbeat. We wished we could have stayed longer. Jerry and Harold really know the area and the local businesses and can provide great travel advice depending on your needs. We give Bella Villa our highest recommendation.
