The goal of Bellaterra is...

to be a place where both actual and armchair world travelers feel comfortable, as it is an expression of that which most travelers seek: the diverse natural and cultural beauty to be found in the world. Each room has its own theme, evoking the sense of some aspaegean-sunriseect of nature or culture. Bellaterra has two significant things going for it; the house itself, and its location. It is located in Lair Hill, an early Portland neighborhood adjacent to downtown. Some rooms have views to the east of the Willamette River, SE Portland, and Mt. Hood.
