We had the pleasure of staying at Bella and the Cottage in June 2020. Over the years we have always been about three or four families that have went on vacation together. We have went many different places and always rented large homes to stay in. This was by far the best vacation experience we’ve ever had. Not only were the owners, the Pizzano’s, absolutely wonderful to work with, the property was more than we could’ve ever imagined. The pictures do not do it justice because this place is amazing!!! The bedrooms are all very large and comfortable. Several of the bedrooms even have balconies attached- what a bonus! The kitchen is to die for. It is beautiful, has 2 ovens, and is totally stocked with pots, pans plates cups silverware utensils, and made it very easy to eat all of our meals in the home even with our large group of 18 people. We never had to worry about running out of room for food and drinks because there are three refrigerators in the home and two wine coolers! The extra house on the property, the cottage, was perfect for one of our families who had ypunger children that go to bed early. The home is in a cove so we were able to spend hours and hours relaxing, floating around off of the dock with no worries of high traffic from boats. We spent many hours also playing bags and shuffleboard and some of the giant video games that are at the property. No one could possibly get bored there.  There was a large grocery store less than 10 minutes away- so convenient! We also rented a boat from the Pizzano’s one day and had a fantastic day boating around Lake of the Ozarks. We also enjoyed the Jacuzzi. It was pretty warm so we did not have any bonfires but there is a really nice fire pit stocked with plenty of wood on the property as well. One really great thing also was that we never were bothered with mosquitoes or other pests. I’m assuming the owners must spray the property because being that close to the lake you would think you would get eaten up but we never had that issue. I could go on and on about all the positive attributes of the property and the owners. Overall it was a 5+ star experience!!! HIGHLY recommended. We will definitely be back!!

This review for Bella and The Cottage (B & C) is long overdue.  For the past five or six years I have booked B & C for a couples’ fall golf trip to the Ozarks and every year the experience has been wonderful.  From the start of the booking process through the course of our stay and checkout, everything was seamless.  The house has always been clean (which is very important to us), well stocked with starter supplies and the owner, Debbie, is very responsive to any inquiries we had.  I highly recommend this property for large groups as each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and there is plenty of space to be together as a group or privacy in your room if needed.  All around we’ve had a great experience at Bella and the Cottage and I’m sure we’ll be back.



Over Thanksgiving, our family of 12 had the privilege of staying at your beautiful Bella Place.  This was the perfect place to get away for a few days and we enjoyed every minute of it. It truly couldn’t have been any better. Thank you for making this a very memorable stay for all of our family.  This will be a place we will long remember.

For 7 years, my family has made an annual trip to Lake of the Ozarks for a family get-together.  We have stayed at a variety of places, but without question, Bella was the BEST decision we have ever made at the lake!  Not only is the residence spacious, gorgeous and impeccably clean, but it is the perfect balance between seclusion and easy access to grocery stores, gas stations and points of interest.  The kitchen is fantastic and well-equipped which made it easy to store the food that we brought to prepare 3 meals a day for 20 guests.  Seating is ample, inside and out, and the view is fabulous!   We spent hours in the evenings around the firepit roasting s’mores, telling stories, laughing and enjoying each other’s company.  The kids had a ball in the amazing game room downstairs.  The easy access to the deck made boating such an easy experience, and the kids loved swimming off the dock.  It is rare to find a place that offers several families the opportunity to stay together in one place and still enjoy some privacy when needed.  I know my family agrees that this was the best lake reunion we have had, and we have Debbie and Gary and the beautiful and functional accommodations of Bella to thank for that!  We cannot wait to return to make more treasured family memories at Bella.

We loved the house.  It was perfect for the golf weekend.  Indian Rock golf course was in beautiful shape.  After the hot day that dinning room table was great for all our lunch and dinners.  We did walk over to Paradise for a cocktail in the evening which was perfect for us.  A few of us played again the next morning.  Took a trip up to Coconuts in Gravois Mills.  Great destination for anyone in the mood for a pool party. That place was nuts, but fun.  All of us were impressed by the house and several rounds of bags tournaments were played, as where shuffle board tournaments.  We appreciate everything.

This was great experience. Came down to the Ozarks for a couple days of golf and stayed at the Bella & Cottage. Very clean, nice, and huge. Spent a lot of time by the fire outside and playing ping pong. I’d recommend it to anyone.

This Property is simple amazing! We planned a fun and relaxing weekend for our leadership crew and this home and the area didn’t disappoint. The property is exactly what everyone is saying it was and MORE. The lower level was perfect for fun and fellowship and the main floor was perfect for great conversation, a Chopped cooking event and beautiful sunrise breakfast. The area was accommodating for the shopper and the sports enthusiast. We will definitely be back!

Last but not least Deb was a pleasure to work with and exceeded our expectations!

Great facility for large gathering. Particularly liked separate full bath for each bedroom and having large common area on each floor (allowed kids ad adults to have separate space to enjoy the vacation Game room was a big hit with all and internet access made it possible to keep in touch for those needing to do so. Boat rental was convenient.

The Bella and Cottage was a wonderful place for our vacation,we met family and friends there for a week of relaxation and fun on the lake.It far exceeded my expectations , it is beautifully furnished and each couple had their own bedroom / bathroom suite. we all took turns cooking in the well stocked kitchen so each couple only had to cook once while we were there, we spent our days out on the lake enjoying the boats and water, evenings were spent in the game room downstairs or out at the fire pit. We also enjoyed a few of the local bars and restaurants .It was our first time to Missouri and I would recommend the Bella to people of all ages. A wonderful place to return to!The owners are very nice and wonderful to work with. Thank you for a great time at the Bella and Cottage.

This property was absolutely perfect for our company’s management retreat. There was 10 adult men in our group with space enough for our group meetings/presentations, and ample area for small groups and team conversations. The large table off the kitchen was perfect for our meetings, the deck tables and chairs seemed to call our name for the remainder of the items on our agenda in the afternoon. The fire pit in the evening was great for those enjoying a cold beverage, while others played in the lower game room. The kitchen was also perfect for meal preparation and getting food ready for each meal. The owners did a great job with the rooms and bathrooms, privacy was just as good as the common areas of the house. We will definitely do this again and look forward to this property for sure.
