My husband and I just returned from 3 wonderful nights at La Belle Vie and, thanks to Laurel & Llewellyn, we will be back again and again. The B&B is stunning and the location is fantastic (in quaint Penn Yan with easy access to both Keuka and Seneca lakes), Laurel's breakfasts are the best in the Finger Lakes (heavenly scones... More

Laurel & Llewellyn have the rare gift of creating an experience where you immediately feel you are home among friends. The house has been restored in a way that you are comfortable and feel at ease. Some Inns we have stayed in feel like museums. La Belle Vie feels truly like you have stepped back in time. Sunday mornings greet... More

My husband and I have never stayed in a B&B before. This experience has motivated us to frequent more. The home is absolutely beautiful with hosts that are even more so! All of the amenities you would get in a hotel plus an amazing 3 course breakfast each day. Staying here was truly one of the highlights of our trip.

Our magnificent stay at La Belle Vie had exceeded our expectations beyond belief!. The owners Laurel and Llewellyn were extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and made our stay a memorable one. The home itself is like a mini museum with ornate decorations, original woodwork molding, and Victorian furniture. The room we stayed in was the Ridley Room that has its own private... More

Fabulous house, hosts, and town! I am a hotel lover and not easy to please, but this B&B had all the amenities of a hotel together with sophistication, space & spectacular breakfast of a first rate B&B. Surpassed all our expectations - spotless, modern bathroom & changing room, lovely bed linens, terrace, & friendly hosts that were flexible and easy... More

What made this place so incredible was those intangibles you can’t plan. I love traveling because of the new things you learn, not just about a place but also about the people who live there. The hosts Llewellyn and Laurel perfectly reflected this for us. The conversation was endless. We discussed all topics including art, travel, photography (even antique photography!),... More

My wife have purchased a few gift certificates from La Belle Vie to give as gifts, and we got one in return in gratitude. We went in August of 2014 (I know a little late with the review) and from the moment we arrived to the moment we reluctantly left, everything was great. I know that the word charming is... More

Stayed for two nights in early November (just before winter set in). The proprietors are exceedingly friendly and were very helpful with suggestions for activites. And the breakfasts were exceptional. We'll stay there again if we go back to the finger lakes.
