Lovely home and spacious bedrooms, delicious breakfast and friendly hosts right in the heart of Finger Lakes wine country.... but I have to concur with"myBubsBub's" review. It is a bit tired, particularly the grounds and the paint. The hot water is very slow to rise, the towels smelled musty, and the porches were very dusty and not that pleasant to... More

I'm a world traveler. You can easily click and view my profile to see how many countries I've been. I have stayed in numberous B&Bs from all over the world. La Belle Vie, however, is my favorite. My husband and I stayed at La Belle Vie for 2 nights on November 7th and 8th. Laurel and Lewellyn were amazing hosts.... More

Over the years, my wife and I have stayed in many B&Bs mostly in the northeast, but also a few in the south and even outside of the U.S.. So, it isn't without sufficient comparisons for us to say that this is what we feel is the best we've ever stayed at. The house and our room (The Ridley) was... More

What a wonderful weekend shared with our family and Llewellyn and Laurel. We were graciously invited into their beautiful home. The minute we met Laurel it felt like we were part of the family. Breakfast was so fulfilling and delicious it kept us going for the better part of the day. The rooms were beautifully decorated and clean. It was... More

It is in my nature to give 5-star reviews whenever possible, so it took me a while to decide to actually write this review. I appreciate that less than positive reviews can negatively affect business for hardworking proprietors. Yet I also feel that guests who may have worked equally hard to earn the money to stay at a B&B deserve... More

- this 19th century house reminds me of the aphorism, "you can't tell a book by its cover" because like a good book, you have to go inside to discover its qualities. The room: bed was very comfortable, The bathroom: extensively redone with modern plumbing, hot water, and electric heat. The breakfast: Proprietors each in their own way serve and... More

Travelled to Finger Lakes and enjoyed the beautiful fall foliage while touring the local vineyards. Had a great stay at Le Belle Vie. Our hosts, Laurel and Llewellyn take pride in providing the most comfortable accommodations and delicious breakfast in the area. We stayed in the Ridley room which was very clean, decorated nicely with attention to detail. The bed... More

We went to the Finger Lakes for a fall weekend getaway. We thoroughly enjoyed the house, food, hospitality, and forever warm showers at La Belle Vie! Laurel and Lewellyn make you feel right at home. Highly recommended!

My husband & I celebrated our 30th anniversary with a trip in September to the Finger Lakes area. We picked Penn Yan as our base, and La Belle Vie after much research. We couldn't have been happier. This was our first time staying in a B&B and it was amazing. All of the other reviews are very accurate. The house... More

Hubby and I decided to do a mini get away to the Finger Lakes region and discovered this B&B on Trip Advisor. After reading many of the already wonderful reviews, we decided to make our reservation. We couldn't have made a better decision. Laurel and Lewelynn are incredible. Right from the get-go, they make you feel so at home....like you... More
