Are you looking for the perfect getaway – a place to stay with breathtaking views, lovely breezes, high-quality amenities, and peacefully tucked away from the maddening crowd, yet close enough to drive to fun hill country things? Look no further…
The Bella Green Guest House is a wonderful stand-alone, eco-friendly, two bedroom/two bath guest house which holds up to 4 guests. It is detached from the main house and decorated in a Texas Tuscan theme. It features a lovely 2-story screened porch area with mini-fridge, coffee/tea station, and two small seating areas that look out to the view. Just outside the screen porch is a large flagstone patio with an outdoor fire pit where you many choose to watch the sun go down. There is a second raised deck area with dining table and chairs (attached to the main house) for comfortable lounging and a long work desk in the screen porch There is wifi should you need it – but its use is strongly discouraged.
Guests also get access to the Bella Green “Studio,” a separate multi-purpose building with exercise equipment, wellness library, full body vibration machine, Keurig coffee bar, lounge area, plus optional (extra fees) infra-red sauna, massage room, art play area and coaching area. You host, Karen, is a licensed massage therapist and certified wellness practitioner who enjoys working one-on-one with solo guests who come to reboot, rebalance and reconnect (see RETREATS tab). Check-in time is 3pm; check-out time is 12pm.

~~~ GOOD TO KNOW ~~~
BREAKFAST – We serve a gourmet, artisan breakfast every morning between 8am and 10am using locally sourced items and organics whenever available. We are happy to serve traditional &/or “healthy”. Gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarians, paleos and vegans are all welcome here! Just let us know your special needs/preferences when making a reservation. Breakfast is served outdoors ‘al fresco’ (weather permitting) on the deck overlooking the hills. See FOOD tab above.
WIFI: We provide free WIFI to our guests so you can “check in” as little or as much as you like. We deliberately do not have TVs in the bedrooms but we do have cable in the Studio, as well as books to read in our library.
FIRE PIT – Our fire pit area is a guest favorite! Wood and a long lighter to get it started will be provided it you’d like to sit and gaze at the flames.
EXCESSIVE NOISE – We are all about REST and RELAXATION — please only make a reservation here if this is what you are looking for. We pride ourselves on offering a calming, peaceful stay.
TAKE-OUT AND DOGGIE BAGS – Not everyone wants to leave for dinner, and many restaurants give GIANT portions, so if you would like us to warm things up for you (left over from your hill country lunch or dinner), we are happy to do so and also like to re-plate them — so you eat on china rather than plastic.
SMOKING – We are a non-smoking facility. Smoking is permitted outdoors but not in the rooms or the screen porch area.
PARKING – We offer inside private parking on a concrete driveway (for the guest house) and a stone-paved parking pad for the Tiny House.
BEVERAGES/SNACKS – We provide pH balanced water for drinking along with coffee/tea options. We also serve a sweet treat in the evenings – in addition to our wonderful morning breakfast. A mini-fridge is available to guests should guests want to bring and keep any items cold.
