Our visit to La Belle Vie has been one of our best B&B experiences. We stayed in the Woodland Room, which is meticulously decorated with English Arts & Crafts style decor. A great bonus is that the bathrooms are equipped with top-notch modern fixtures. Laurel's breakfasts were wonderful, as were the conversations with our hosts and guests at the breakfast... More

My wife and I had a very nice stay here over a weekend for our anniversary. The breakfasts were delicious and we enjoyed the conversation and hospitality from Laurel and Llewellyn. They also helpfully provided restaurant suggestions and local maps.

Our go to spot in Penn Yan. Laurel is a great, great cook, every morning is a revelation of how wonderful breakfast can be. Baked goods that are to die for! If Laurel owned a bakery I would be there everyday. The B&B itself is a wonder of Victorian design, fabulous woodwork, period wallpaper, even the ceilings are done. Comfy... More

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
