First of all, the picture does not do La Belle Via justice because the property is so much more than it appears. We were wonderfully surprised upon arrival. The house is a lovely Victorian sitting on a beautiful shaded street just a block or two from downtown. We were greeted by Laurel and Llewellyn who were both anxious get us... More

This was our second visit at La Belle Vie and our stay was every bit as wonderful as the first visit. Laurel and Llewellyn are wonderful hosts and when we walked in the door it was like reuniting with old and very dear friends. They are particularly thoughtful of their guests and provide them with a thorough two page list... More

Laurel and Llewellyn are marvelous hosts in all ways. The Italianate home is elegantly restored and decorated. Llewellyn and Laurel provide great suggestions about how to explore the local area. Laurel's breakfasts are stellar feasts. We stayed in the Woodland Room. It was beautifully appointed and utterly comfortable. What we remember most fondly are the lively conversations over breakfasts. Outstanding... More

We joined good friends at La Belle Vie to celebrate our long friendship. The welcome we received from Laurel and Llewellyn was great, and was made even more memorable by the first class accomodation. The standard was comparable to that is a modern 5-star hotel; the breakfasts were superb, and the advice regarding the places to go (Watkins Glen, the... More

Laurel and Llewellyn are truly an amazing couple. They have created an environment that makes everyone who walks through their door feel like family. Their attention to provide all the personal comforts of a 5 star hotel are apparent. Their upgraded showers, room decor and bed mattresses made our stay extremely pleasant. Laurel's ability to provide the most fantastic breakfasts... More

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
