Not much else to say about this B&B that has not been said! It is the owners that make it special. The day we arrived they told us about a restaurant that we would have surely passed by and it was special. They obviously love the area and love sharing both their home and their insights into the Finger Lakes!

First of all, Llewellyn and Laurel are all-round wonderful hosts! We enjoyed every conversation we had with them, whether it be stories over breakfast with the other guests or simply a few words on our way in and out of the house. The house itself is beautifully done with antique furnishings (including a delightfully old piano which I enjoyed a...

After 5 nights at La Belle Vie my husband and I totally understand why LBV is rated the #1 B&B in the Finger Lakes. We had the most relaxing and enjoyable experience at LBV and I can't say enough about Laurel and Llewellyn - the perfect hosts, right down to the most delectable breakfasts every morning!

Immaculate rooms, wonderful old home, attentive but never overbearing inn keepers. Exceptional breakfast. Soooo good. Friendly and welcoming. Thanks so much, Llewellyn and Laurel! We left feeling delightfully spoiled and already planning a return trip. We also discovered red wine drinkers can enjoy the wine trail. We totally forgot that white wine has it's own merits. A great time an...

We stayed at La Belle Vie with a group of 3 couples and found this B&B to be a wonderful experience. The hosts were very friendly and had lots of tips regarding wineries and restaurants.

This was by far the most pleasant experience my husband and I have had on an over night! The owners are so friendly! We happened to be the only couple staying that night so we chatted with them for hours. Breakfast was amazing! We definitely will be back!

What adjective exceeds superb? We just spent three delightful nights in Penn Yan, NY, at the La Belle Vie Bed and Breakfast.
