“Awesome B & B!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Lisal & Matt are terrific hosts! The Inn was beautiful, impeccably clean & Lisal prepared the most amazing breakfast ever. We stayed in the Ex Libris room, which was perfect for us. I'm an avid reader & the library was amazing :) I can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was! I highly recommend Bella La Vita and look forward to staying there again on our next trip to Floyd, VA.

Room Tip: All rooms are amazing :)

You guys are awesome for taking the time to review us! Your input means everything to a small business like ours. We are so glad you loved Ex Libris...it is our favorite hang out spot when the house is not full and busy. Books have such a soothing effect! We hope you will come to visit us often in your very cool car...

Going to Floyd, Virginia or touring the Blue Ridge Parkway? Make sure you reserve at least one night at Bella LaVita Inn!

My husband and I planned our wedding for the Chateau Morrisette winery this fall. Being very secluded on the Blue Ridge Parkway, accommodations were best found in the nearby town of Floyd, VA. And so we stumbled upon the Bella LaVita Inn. I have stayed at other B&B's, having good experiences (and bad!), and I can truly say that Lisal and Matt really do things right. They are all about the details - from the gorgeous Mediterranean-style home, with a reflection pond and relaxing atmosphere, to Lisal's divine cooking (like the others have said - breakfast will be the best meal of your day/week at Bella LaVita), to the weekend morning massages that leave you feeling rejuveinated and ready for a great day! The Innkeepers were very accommodating for my family, some of which had never experienced a B&B before. They had freshly-baked cake at the ready when family arrived. Matt even helped pack up wedding gifts into our car after the wedding! By the end of the weekend, it was like saying goodbye to family. Seriously, what could be better?

Even though this was somewhat difficult to find off the Blue Ridge Parkway, once you found it you didn't want to go away from it. Matt and Lisal really make you feel like you are home, even though it is their home. We were not real familiar with locations of the wineries around the parkway, but all we had to do was ask either one of them and they could tell you better than any brochure. We found out that Matt even works at one on his off days. The best thing we found other than the great room with the balcony, was the way both of these wonderful people could cook a breakfast. One the day when there were several couples staying there they would make this wonderful grits Soufflé along with the best scrambled eggs you will ever put in your mouth. This was the best B&B we have ever stayed in, ever. If you ever go to Floyd for any music Festival, this would be the place to stay, it is very close to everything.

Room Tip: Either the upper room with the balcony or the room below it, both have in room baths, if you like si...

We stayed at La Bella Vita on our tour of the Smoky Mountains and what a find it turned out to be. Lisal and Matt made you fel very much at home and made their home your home for the duration of your stay. We loved the dogs as well. Breakfast was the best we had on our two week trip - don't make any plan for lunch! Our room had a nice balcony where we enjoyed a drink on our return from our days out. Unfortunately we were'nt able to enjoy the music at the Floyd Country Store as we stayed on a Monday and Tuesday night.

We had such a wonderfuyl time staying at the Bella La Vita Inn with Matt and Lisal on our recent stay in Floyd VA. We were lucky to have come across their website and found 2 rooms available for 1 night during our stay. We sure wish we could have stayed longer and will most definitely stay at Bella on future vacations.

Matt and Lisal were the most gracious hosts, and the B&B was absolutley gorgeous and so peaceful and relaxing. The breakfast was gourmet delicous! We highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking to vacation in Floyd VA.

My husband and I enjoy staying at small inns and B&Bs when we travel, and our recent experience at Bella La Vita makes it one of our favorites. I just can't say enough about the gracious hosts Lisel and Matt. They made everyone feel comfortably at home, and were helpful with directions to wineries and information on the best places to dine around Floyd. The inn itself is lovely, well decorated, and quite unique for the area. The grounds include several separate sitting areas, all loosely connected by a large deck and surrounding a lovely pond. We chose the Panis Angelicus, a large room with high vaulted ceiling and ensuite bath (good size shower, too!). The room has interior access to the inn, but a private balance also provides an exterior entrance. Our stay was relaxing, enjoyable, and will surely continue to be one of our most favorite weekend getaways.

My friend and I were in Floyd last weekend for their Yogajam festival and we stayed here for the weekend. After a long drive from the DC area, it was a relief to drive into Bella la Vita's charming driveway complete with water fountain and flowers. The owners Leisel and Matt were very warm and gracious and boy does that lady know how to cook a tasty breakfast!

The B&B itself is very clean, nicely decorated, and comfortable; you really feel at home. They stocked the bathroom with the essentials [fabulous tiled shower!] and we were welcome to a fridge of cold beverages and homemade chocolate cake. We stayed in the Ex Libris room which has a great collection of books, and I really enjoyed winding down the night on their outside patio and koi pond. It is very close to the downtown area as well. We came to Floyd for a yoga get away, but the B&B in itself was a retreat. I am definitely coming back here and bringing my friends. If you are in Floyd you have to stay here!

We were so happy that you made it to Bella in one piece and were still smiling after such a long and interesting trip through the back roads of Floyd County. Thank you so much for sharing your experience here at Bella with others. Your input means everything to us as we continually strive to be the very best innkeepers we can be! We hope you tell all of your friends and family about all that Floyd and Bella has to offer. Maybe we will see you next year for the next Yoga Jam!
