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...

We planned a last minute get away and were totally delighted with the results. The home is a spectacular Victorian lovingly restored and filled with interesting antiques. The hosts were delightful and very helpful in providing ideas and interesting alternatives suited to our interests. The breakfasts were a spectacular with every day a new baked goody for openers (and always...

Well played, La Belle Vie. Well played. Truly a splendid stay. A charming and tastefully decorated 1870s home, situated on a quiet, leafy street a chip shot from Penn Yan's funky old downtown. Perfect jumping-off point for day trips to the Finger Lakes' many enticements, for which hosts Llewelyn Lafford and Laurel O'Donnell provide extremely helpful guidance. Did I mention...

Stayed 3 nights. It was perfect in every way. Some highlights: - The owners are lovely in addition to being helpful. They went out of their way to do some extra things to make our romantic weekend special including making a mini heart-shaped cake for us one evening. They also accommodated our special dietary needs with thoughtfulness and were gracious...

Spent one night here as a couple. House is located on a quiet street near downtown Penn Yan. The home's interior is well maintained. The two common rooms downstairs are filled with period piece antiques which perfectly compliment the architecture but make the rooms more museum-like rather than a cozy place to hang out. We stayed in the MacIntosh room...

The B&B is charming, a nice old home with cozy furnishings. There are many charming antiques. The bathrooms are updated, though, which is great. It is also very clean. The real key is the hosts. Laurel and Llewellyn are lovely, interesting people. They really care about their guests. The breakfasts are exceptional. Save room and plan to eat well. Penn...

We stayed four nights on a wine trip. Beautiful old house with original woodwork and filled with incredible antiques. Comfortable, well-appointed rooms with modern baths. The innkeepers are gracious and the breakfasts are wonderful. I'm running out of superlatives. Truly a perfect stay.

We stayed two nights at this lovely B&B which provided the perfect recluse after a long day's worth of outdoor activities and wine tasting along the finger lakes. The hosts were incredibly welcoming and gave excellent suggestions for things to do, places to eat, etc. They really did everything in their power to make your stay enjoyable.

Wonderful hosts, great conversation, hand crafted breakfast was enjoyed in dialog with the other guests discussing wine country tours. The Tesla charger made this the perfect top so we could recharge while the car recharged.
