This was our first time staying at a B&B. It was a wonderful experience. We were the only guests that weekend and Laurel and Llewellyn were outstanding hosts. If you are a breakfast lover, this is the place you want to stay. You will not need lunch after having Laurel's delicious breakfast. Between the fresh baked scones and muffins, fresh... More

I cannot express how much we enjoyed staying at La Belle Vie this past weekend. The hosts, Laurel and Llewellyn, were exceptional and the breakfast was beyond anything you could purchase at a local diner or restaurant. You will first receive fresh fruit and Laurel makes scones or muffins (homemade) daily. Each breakfast is different and catered to however you'd... More

This was our first time visiting the finger lakes and it was a wonderful experience. La Belle Vie made the experience even more enjoyable. The breakfast and atmosphere are absolutely ineradicable here and the inn keepers do wonderful job of making you feel at home. I highly recommend staying here if you have the opportunity.

This was our first trip to the Finger Lakes region. There were so many things to do and see. We had a great time hiking in the State Parks and visiting some of the many wineries in the area. With the many accomodations available, I am so glad we chose La Belle Vie. This B & B was just perfect.... More

We visited the FIngerlakes area in late October as a romantic Anniversary getaway. After researching for days the area and best places to stay, we found La Belle Vie and we are so happy we did! Penn Yan is very centrally located amongst all the vineyards, breweries, shops, dairy farms, and restaurants the Fingerlakes have to offer. While it can... More

When the foliage turns colorful every October my wife and I return to Le Belle Vie. We love visiting with our hosts Laurel and Llewellyn and getting caught up with what has happened in the past year. Our room is very clean and well maintained, and the breakfasts prepared by Laurel are fabulous! We especially enjoy her rose pastries (and... More

Laurel & Llewelyn welcomed us like old friends into their historic Penn Yan home. We came because of their Tesla chargers but left unexpectedly enriched by their warm hospitality. Laurel is the chef par excellence, Llewelyn a humble treasure - kindred spirits both. Beyond the delicious breakfast we especially appreciated the bathroom reno - lovely shower, toilet & toilet paper.... More

My husband and I were looking for a nice B&B that would be convenient for visiting the wineries in the Finger Lakes. We selected this beautiful Victorian - actually East Lake - owned and run by two wonderful inn keepers, Laurel and Llewellyn. The house is worth the trip - a completely restored late Victorian in a town filled with... More

When you think of staying in the Finger Lakes, you don't think about staying in a town like Penn Yan. However, this B&B will change your mind completely. This beautiful Victorian era structure is a sight to see in itself. Between the woodwork on the doors, the parlor, and the artwork all around, this is truly a sight to see.... More

We stayed here for three nights in mid-September and couldn't be happier with our choice. From the moment we got there Laurel and Llewellyn couldn't have been more welcoming. This was our first visit to the area so we really valued their advice and hints on where to go and what to see, Being form Northern California wine country, we... More
