Unfortunately, we only spent one night at Bella La Vita Inn, but it was the best B&B experience we have had. Lisal and Matt should write the book on how to be a B&B host! Down to the smallest detail, everything was perfect. Matt and Lisal are warm, the grounds are beautiful, the house is unique, the beds and rooms are comfortable, and the breakfast -- oh, that breakfast! And the surrounding area isn't bad either!!

I trusted the reviews on Trip Advisor and we spent 2 nights in April. The upstairs rooms had a balcony and the Inn was all you could ask for. Lisal and Matthew were the best of hosts and the breakfasts were to die for! We had so much fun at the Country Store enjoying the Gospel and Bluegrass music, it was the highlight of a two week driving trip!

My husband and I spent the Memorial Day weekend at the wonderfully charming Bella La Vita Inn. The proprietors, Lisal and Matthew, are warm, gracious, and incredibly accommodating. Their suggestions for local food, wine, and fun were spot on. We were also impressed at their helpfulness in giving directions and checking on closing or serving times of local establishments for us. Each morning we were fed an incredible breakfast and on our last morning, all of the guests as well as the innkeepers had breakfast al fresco on their wonderful patio overlooking the pond. The inn was spotless, well appointed, and beautifully decorated. We cannot wait to return!

Room Tip: Book lovers will love the "Ex Libris" room. For direct access to the patio, and your own p...

Hi, I was at Bella La Vita about a week ago and loved it. The beautiful and comfortable accomodations, the lovely setting in the mountains, the rejuvenating massage and the wonderful tasty breakfasts were only a few of the many perks there. I felt right at home and Matt and Lisal go out of their way to make you happy and well fed. I would return again and again to be pampered by them. THanks Matt and Lisal for a great vacation!

Room Tip: All of them are beautiful. I loved my downstairs room with the view of the garden and gazebo.

We celebrated our 12th anniversary at the Bella La Vita Inn. The Inn reminded my wife and I of our visit to Tuscany 11 years ago. Lisal recommended visiting the country store in Floyd on Friday night, which was a unique experience to see the live bluegrass musicians gathering on the roadside. The breakfast was delectable! Thank you so much for a wonderful time. We will definitely recommend the Inn to everyone we know.

We found this gem of a B&B thru a winery's web site- and am I ever thankful we did. It was terribly rainy that day (spring football at Va Tech for those in the know) and Lisal's directions on the web site, plus her recommendations for dinner places in floyd were spot on. Our stay was saturday, April 21st, 2012.

The room was beautiful, and the breakfast & hospitality served & shown by Lisal and Matt was excellent!

We will stay there again in a heartbeat- they made us so welcome, it felt almost like being home.

Room Tip: we were able to view all the rooms- and there were no bad ones. the B&B is located very well, so...

Our first visit at the Bella La Vita Inn was 12/31/11. We rang in the new year 2012. Our stay on April 14, 2012 was our third time at this charming and beautiful place. The breakfast Lisal and Matt serve is scrumptious. I can't name them all, but the spinach quiche, Lisa's german pancakes actually everything is appetizing. The place is immaculately clean. When driving into the driveway, a relaxing feeling comes all over you. Just that simple! We are already looking forward to our next stay which is not far away. We are so happy to have found the Bella La Vita Inn. It truly is a "beautiful life" there.
