Sierra Vista VA
6302 Forest Road
Bedford, VA 24523
Email:  info@sierravistava.com
Virginia has been my home for over 30 years. I have embraced its captivating beauty, been enthralled with the splendor of the seasons and fell in love with a place rich in over 400 years of history. But it did not begin this way. Having spent the first 18 years of my life in Southern California, the heavy Spanish influence had a profound effect on me and still has a presence in who I am today. It is not surprising that a little of this has made its way to Bedford County, Virginia. We are blessed now with a 300 acre sanctuary and in the middle of it, sitting high on a hill, a stunning 30 mile long panoramic view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Some say it is all in the name. A name gives purpose and meaning. It speaks of who you are and what you are. “Sierra” in Spanish means mountain range and “Vista” means view. Hence… Sierra Vista! It is our little bit of the great out west in the heart and foothills of Virginia. Come fall in love with our ‘mountain range view’ and let the handiwork of our Creator be the backdrop for your wedding or special event!

Sierra Vista features a gorgeous handcrafted barn, beautiful mountain lodge home, upscale cabin and impeccably cared for grounds.  We allow our couples to put their creative touch on design while we take care of the rest with our talented staff and attention to detail. Come and enjoy true elegance in the great outdoors.  Welcome to our Home!
