“what a serendipity!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013 via mobile

Silly us for going to the wine country in October without having lodging reservations for each time we were there. Fortunately we were lucky enough to find Bella Villa Messina...and what a find it was!! Such a lovely hoe, beautiful room, amazing breakfasts, FUN daily Happy Hour with (and here is the best part of the visit) our marvelous innkeepers, Jerry and Harold. Jerry seemed to know everything about the area, who was who around town, and was so helpful about getting us into the best restaurants. Our stay at Bella turned out to be one of the true highlights of our trip. If we are ever back in that area of Sonoma, we will for sure stay at the BVM

My wife and I stayed at this B&B while we attended a wedding at a nearby vineyard and we loved our time here. The cocktail hour is fun and relaxing and the proprietors are very generous and helpful with everything from food to drinks to recommendations for vineyards and restaurants. The accommodations are very nice, and you get an insider look at wine country as well.

We've stayed at a number of B&B's over our travel's. This one tops them all. From the warm and genuine greeting, to our cocktail hour on the deck overlooking the beautiful hills of Sonoma, to Jerry's breakfasts of plenty, and Harold's recounting of a fascinating life, this visit was superb. These folks love what they do, and it shows. The wonderful facility they have is almost an afterthought, but is spotless, warm, comfortable, and inviting. Their "joie de vivre" is infectious and do they know how to have fun!
We will be back as soon as time allows!

Not enough good things to say about our stay. Jerry is very welcoming and a fount of knowledge about all things in Sonoma. Our room was spotless and very comfortable but who goes to stay in their room when in a beautiful place like Healdsburg. The wine, seasonal tomatoes and cheeses were delicious and plentiful. Jerry was the perfect host and the breakfast French toast was unbelievable.

Wonderful rooms, amazingly comfortable beds, and fantastic service. Evening wine reception was great, and the time was spent so wonderfully learning about things to do and places to visit in Healdsburg. Breakfast was so yummy! Can't wait to go see Jerry and Harold again in the future!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at VBM last week. Jerry & Harold were amazing hosts! The property,room and views were lovely. The wine & cheese, delicious breakfast & hospitality was second to none.
We highly recommend it and look forward to a return visit. Thanks so much for an amazing experience.

My wife and I were celebrating our 5 year anniversary with a trip through San Francisco, Carmel, Napa and Sonoma. Most of the trip was spent at Marriott's with points, but we splurged on our anniversary night for one night at Bella Villa Messina and we are so glad that we did!
The home is beautiful and Jerry made us feel at home even though we were only staying for one night. We were the youngest of his guests, but we had a great time at wine and cheese with the other guests in part because Jerry makes everyone feel like a big family around his table. We stayed in the French Room which had a wonderful spa tub and very comfortable bed.
Jerry got us reservations at a great Italian restaurant (which had a line out the door), and helped us set up our trip south through Sonoma at various wineries, none of which we regretted going to. The first few referred to us as "Jerry's Kids" and treated us like friends, with their first question being "What was for breakfast?"
Breakfast in itself would have made the stay, with delicious French toast, bacon and fruit.
It is definitely on the high end of our budget, but when we were getting in our car my wife concurred that it was worth every penny!
I would highly recommend this place to anyone celebrating a special occasion and wanting a great experience!
