“Charming and Comfortable B&B”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

This is a lovely inn tucked away on a country road just outside of Floyd. My room, Panis Angelicus, was very pretty and well-appointed and had a balcony overlooking the garden. The hosts, Lisal and Mark are so welcoming and gracious. The breakfasts are great! I loved my time at Bella La Vita and plan to return often. It's one the best B&Bs I've stayed at and I've traveled a lot.

Room Tip: I loved the Panis Angelicus room on the back of the inn - it was very quiet - and it was dark at nig...

My trip to Floyd, VA was unexpected due to the death of a beloved family member, so it was not easy because of the popularity of Floyd's weekly Friday Jamboree, and after finding no rooms at other inns, someone recommended Bella La Vita. I admit that I assumed it was probably mediocre since I was able to book the room I needed, but the warmth and genuine effort shown by Lisal to accommodate me for 4 nights -- even if it meant staying in one room for the first 2 nights and then helping me move to another for the second two -- was really appreciated. It seemed to be quite a distance from Floyd, but in fact, was only about 5 minutes, through lovely scenery with mountain vistas, rolling hills, and farmland. When I arrived, I was unsure since there were some less than up-scale homes nearby. But once I entered Bella La Vita Inn, it was magical.
The rooms were charming, clean, spacious, and extremely comfortable, with with every amentity anyone might need. There was even a gas burning fireplace that added not only the perfect touch of warmth on a chilly night, but a very romantic touch as well. The grounds were beautiful, calming, and designed for pure relaxation. But the most unexpected part was breakfast. There is breakfast, and then there is La Bella Vita breakfast! Served homestyle, with other guests, at the reasonable hour of 9 am, EVERYTHING WAS HOME-MADE AND MADE TO ORDER with consideration given to individual food preferences, needs, allergies, etc (you are asked explicitly about food requirements when you make the reservation) and her home made tarts, quiches, give instant testimony to the fact that Lisal is a gourmet chef! Who ever imagined getting a Michelin 3 star breakfast in Floyd VA! I can't wait to return.

Room Tip: There is no elevator, but if you need help with bags, Lisal and Matt are happy to help.

Green Features: The owners -- Lisal and Matt -- are also eco-conscious -- recycling of trash, compost, etc. Much appreciated by me as a Vermonter!

My boyfriend and I were stopping off in Floyd for one night and we found this beautiful B&B for us to stay in. The hosts Lisal and Matt were very warm and welcoming. We stayed in the gorgeous knights room which had a lovely outlook to the front of the property and super comfy beds. A superb and delicious breakfast was made for us and Lisal shared some recipies which I will attempt to recreate when we get back to Australia. The only sad thing was that we couldn't stay for longer!
If you are ever in Floyd, please do yourself a favour and stay here. You will not be disappointed.
Thanks again Lisal and Matt.

Amy and Ben.

We've stayed here 3 or four times and love it so much I decided to propose here. Very warm and romantic atmosphere, and we love the hosts Lisal and Matthew. Stayed over Valentine's weekend and it was perfect!

After getting a rare 2 days off with my husband we took a chance at a late reservation. Called the next morning with the news welcome to our home. Arrived at what is the coldest temperatures on record but the warmth of Inn and the hosts were fabulous. Loved the town and the music we got to hear. But there was nothing like sitting by the fire, petting the dogs and watching nature outside. The food was fabulous and so was the conversation. It was definitely a place to recommend!
