Welcome to Bella Vista, formerly the Bay View Hotel built in 1874. For years, this beauty sat at the gateway to Marin. The ferry from San Francisco landed at San Quentin Village and travelled throughout Marin. Today San Quentin Village is a sleepy little community nestled on the shores of San Francisco Bay.
Bella Vista, affectionately known as "BV" takes you back to a different time and place. Lovingly renovated over fifteen years BV brings a touch of New Orleans charm and sophistication and mixes in a dash of the Old Wild West. It's a combination that many appreciate.
We invite you to stay with us during your time in the Bay Area. We are centrally located near the heart of Marin, with easy access to San Francisco, the Napa Valley or the East Bay.
On your stay you will be swept away by the grand spiral staircase. It leads to your room with a view of San Francisco Bay and the sandy beach below. If you enjoy beautiful sunrises, this is your place. A gourmet breakfast can be served on the private balcony. You will also find a complimentary bottle of wine and chocolates in your room.
If you need a place for peace and tranquility, you've found it. The Village is truly a quaint community. Enjoy a book on the beach or sunbathe on the balcony. We also have wireless connections to keep you in touch with the outside world. If you're looking for a little excitement Marin has plenty to offer, and San Francisco is only fifteen minutes away!
