***** For additional reviews, refer to FlipKey or Trip Advisor.

***** A season pass for Lake Laura allowing unlimited access for up to six people per daily use will be made available for all rentals during the open season.

Located on more than an acre of land, Belle Vue is a modern, tranquil and private retreat that offers one of the area’s most spectacular, unimpeded mountain views of the Bryce Resort ski slopes and valley year round. Atop the front nine of the championship golf course, Belle Vue is in a wooded setting that also offers a spectacular view of the golf course grounds, particularly in the spring and fall when the trees are not yet full. With it’s idyllic setting and modern touches Belle Vue promises to provide you a serene yet fun-filled vacation you will never forget!

Belle Vue is unlike most rental properties- it is my vacation home, as well. I love it and I work very hard hoping that you do too! My goal is a safe, entertaining, and relaxing environment for your enjoyment.

About Kimberly Bagford

I work for the Department of Defense and live in Alexandria VA. When I'm not dealing with the hustle and bustle of DC city life, I like to escape to the tranquil lifestyle and beautiful scenery that Bryce Resort has to offer.

Kimberly Bagford purchased this house in 2011

Why Kimberly Bagford chose Basye-Bryce Mountain

Belle Vue is a quick 2 hour drive from the DC area, which makes it a convenient getaway for me and my family, even if only for the weekend. When I first saw this property, I fell in love with its breathtaking views. I was equally impressed with the recent remodel that gives this property a distinctly modern and elegant feel, unlike many of the other, older homes in the Bryce area.

What makes this house unique

Whether you like basking in the sun sipping a glass of wine on one of the many decks, lounging on the sofa in front of the fire, preparing a meal on the grill or in the upgraded kitchen, driving 2 minutes down the road to go skiing or snow tubing, or driving 4 minutes to relax lakeside at Lake Laura... Belle Vue has it all- convenient location and fantastic amenities.

Notes:
Belle Vue is a 2044 sq ft, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, pet-friendly home that was remodeled in 2008 with all modern upgrades including hardwood flooring, new carpet and paint, stainless steel appliances, and granite countertops. The home was completely refurnished with all new furniture, mattresses, and decor in 2011. It sleeps 9-11 (2 queen beds, 2 full beds, 1 twin bed, 1 queen sleeper sofa). AC and heating is central air. Circular driveway parking can easily accommodate 4 vehicles. Additional grass parking for 3 vehicles can be utilized. Upon entry you will be greeted with a spacious and open layout featuring a dramatic two-story ceiling and windows throughout looking out onto the large top deck with views of the mountains, the slopes, and the golf course. The kitchen is equipped with all the necessities including cooking utensils, pots and pans, dinnerware, coffee maker, toaster, blender, crock pot, skillet, griddle, waffle maker, pasta cooker, microwave, oven/stove, refrigerator, freezer with icemaker, garbage disposal, and dishwasher. The spacious dining room seats 5. There is additional seating for 2-3 at the kitchen counter. The spacious sunken living room includes a 37” flat screen cable tv with surround sound and dvd player, as well as a stereo with radio and cd player. The living room also features a gas fireplace. The upstairs is completed with a half bath as well as the master bedroom featuring a private bathroom (tub/shower combination), mountain views from the queen-sized bed, soaring ceiling, and cable tv. Before you travel downstairs, you have to pay a visit to one of the best features Belle Vue has to offer - the newly constructed decks. There are large decks on both levels of this 2-story house, which face the mountains, the slopes, and the golf course. The decks also showcase lovely landscaping including gorgeous pink dogwoods in the spring. The top-level wrap-around outdoor deck is equipped with a propane grill and bistro dining area with seating for 4-6. There is also a top-level screened-in dining deck with dining table and comfortable seating for an additional 6, which is equipped with a remote controlled fan and lighting. Beneath this dining area, there is another deck on the lower-level which is equipped with a very comfortable conversation-style patio set with seating for 4. While absolutely no indoor smoking is permitted, ash trays are provided on both the top and lower-level decks. Downstairs you will find 2 additional bedrooms. The first features a queen-sized bed. The second is very large and includes 1 full-sized bed and another full-sized bed bunked with a twin-sized bed. This room has cable tv. as well. Downstairs you will also find a spacious rec room, which overlooks the lower-level deck and includes a 32” flat screen cable tv with dvd player and a queen-sized sleeper sofa complete with bedding. There is a full bathroom (shower) and a laundry room including washer and dryer that is available for use downstairs too. There is free wireless internet, as well as local telephone calls. Unlike many locations near Bryce, your cell phone almost certainly will work at Belle Vue! I know of no instances where cell phones have not worked. Also, all bedrooms have alarm clocks. Bedding (pillows, sheets, comforters, and blankets) and bath towels are provided. A limited amount of paper towels, toilet tissue, laundry detergent, hand soap, dish soap, dishwashing detergent, and trash bags are also supplied free of charge. An iron, ironing board, and hair dryer are provided, as well.

Myself and my two young boys and a great friend and her 3 kids and another couple whom are great friends stayed for a few nights. The kids were in awe over the house and exceptionally loved the view of the ski mountain as they call it! It was very well kept and just beautiful! Can't wait to go back this year and so on!

Beautiful Home with Great Views

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to get away for a few days. The home is lovely and the kitchen has everything you need. The owner, Kim, was a joy to deal with and quick to respond to any questions. There is a very nice screened in porch with a ceiling fan that is comfortable even when it is a little hot outside. And the view is terrific. You can't go wrong staying here.

Wonderful Home in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this beautifully decorated and very clean rental! Traveling with a group of 2 families including 4 adults, 2 teenage boys, a preteen girl and a service dog the layout of this home was perfect for group meals, card games and space for everyone to spread out when they wanted to. We made all of our meals there and the kitchen was well stocked with any tool, pan and bowl that we needed. The views are wonderful as well. Throughout the rental process the owner answered all my questions promptly and I was pleasantly surprised on our drive home to receive a message that our security deposit was already refunded. If we travel to this area again I wouldn't think about staying anywhere else.
