My wife and I stayed for a weekend get away, and greatly enjoyed our stay. Laurel and Llewellyn welcomed us warmly and showed us around the inn. We were blown away by the dining room. It is of Eastlake design, with chestnut trim, and it is completely intact and unpainted! Wow! We stayed in the Ridley Room, which is very... More

We can't agree more with all the previous reviews for the beautiful La Belle Vie. We have travelled all over and stayed in many B&Bs, but this one tops the list for so many reasons. We stayed in the Ridley Room, which was spacious, huge bathroom, and lovely outdoor terrace. Lauren & Llewellyn were top notch hosts at their gorgeous... More

My wife and I stayed in the Ridley Room. It was our first trip to the finger lakes and Laurel and Llewellyn made it an experience we won't forget. Pros: Owners make you feel like family, great suggestions/advice, breakfast is amazing, room was immaculate. What everyone else said… Very minor cons of the room (I’m reaching here): -19” TV is...

My husband and I recently spent a night at La Belle Vie. The house was lovely and immaculate! The breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. Our hosts were very warm and welcoming. Our room was well decorated and the bed was so comfortable. Thank you Laurel and Llewellyn for a wonderful B &B experience.

We spent 3 relaxing days at Laurel and Llewellyn's beautiful home. The home is beautifully decorated with antiques and period finishes. Laurel and Llewellyn gave us an informative history of the house, our room, and directed us to attractions and restaurants in the Penn Yan area. Every morning Laurel prepared beautifully presented gourmet breakfasts. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at... More

Despite our slightly late arrival, we were warmly greeted by Laurel and Llewellyn, who brought us in, and made us feel at home. They gave us a comprehensive introduction to our room, the house, and Penn Yan, including local activities and eateries. The house has to be seen to be believed. An incredibly beautiful Victorian with soaring ceilings and… I... More

La Belle Vie truly has the feeling of a home away from home. Quiet, spacious, immaculate and private rooms, wonderful homemade breakfasts (egg rollatini, scones, fresh fruit..and accommodating to strange food allergies like mine), and great hosts all made for a perfect getaway in June. We felt like we knew Llewellyn and Laurel the minute we walked in the door... More
