La Belle Vie is a wonderful B&B centrally located in the Finger Lakes region of NY. Laurel and Llewellyn made my partner and I feel right at home. You can tell they truly enjoy meeting new people and work hard to provide an exceptional experience. Our room was very comfortable and all of their suggestions were right on the mark... More

We really enjoyed our introduction to this area and great hospitality offered by Laurel and Llewellyn. The historic house is just lovely and the rooms well appointed with the right atmosphere for the home. We enjoyed our magnificent breakfast and wish we could have stayed longer. We appreciated how they pointed us in all the right directions for food and... More

As this was our first B&B experience, Llewellyn & Laurel set a high bar for future stays in any B&B. Staying there 4 nights for our mini honeymoon in the Ridley room, there was incredible food, amazing century home, clean clean clean rooms and bathrooms, comfortable beds, a private balcony, more than friendly hosts, and did I mention the amazing...

If you are like us, we were wondering how a B & B could get all excellent reviews. Well, it is true. Laurel and Llewellyn deserve and A+ in all aspects. The house is beautiful, clean, and well furnished. Great beds by the way. We want one of those mattresses. But La Belle Vie goes beyond that. Laurel and Llewellyn... More

When I first read the ratings for this bed and breakfast, I was worried that it was too good to be true. However, they are RIGHT! An AMAZING time at La Belle Vie. It is easy to find, and close to almost everything. Beds are comfortable and air conditioning is in each room. Laurel and Llewellyn were so EASY to... More

My wife and I had the wonderful fortune to have had the opportunity to stay with Laurel and Llewlyn at La Belle Vie over the July 4th weekend. This is an incredible bed n breakfast. Not only were Laurel and Llewelyn fantastic hosts, but also their knowledge and recommendations were spot on. Laurel's breakfasts were unbelievably scrumptious with a beautiful... More

As a B&B first timer, this was the perfect and most wonderful experience. Following some research and dedicated looking I called to make reservations to celebrate a romantic birthday for my soon to be fiancé'. I cannot tell you enough about how accommodating Llewellyn and Laurel were; from the moment we were greeted to the moment we departed we felt... More

It was wonderful to meet you both, we enjoyed our conversations over breakfast very much. The discovery regarding similar professions and the "small world" discovery that our respective partners both worked for the same manager in different parts of the country was nothing short of amazing! We are so happy you enjoyed your visit with us and look forward to... More

This B&B really is as good as the reviews. Laurel and Llewellyn have carefully researched how to set up and manage a B&B to ensure the maximum comfort for their guests. The breakfasts are varied and fabulous quality and the little extras, such as fresh baked goods, really make a difference. The house is fascinating and the owners are wonderful... More
