Lisal & Matthew,
Thank you for inviting Tammi & I into your home. Our stay was extremely delightful and thank you for the special snow event..for sure snow cream next time.
-Glenn & Tammi Barnes
Our first visit was in Sept 2011 for my grandson's 5th b-day party and fell in love with Bella La Vita and the owners. We our now back in Jan 2012 for a late Christmas celebration with the boys' & their families and we wouldn't have stayed anywhere else! When you walk in, you immediately feel like you have come home. Lisal & Matthew are very warm & caring & have many wonderful stories to share. You must ask to see their wedding photos because they are great! And, maybe most importantly, when we asked our 11 year old boy where he wanted to stay he immediately said at the Inn with Lisal, so he did not mind that there was no swimming pool, computer games, etc! Now that's saying something!

"We are happy about the lucky circumstances
that brought us here, right on the first day
of your new business! What we found was
a small rural paradise. And what we enjoyed
and loved most was the warm atmosphere
in your house. We leave you as friends
and would like to come back some time - but
it's a long way from Germany!"

Thanks for having us! We had a GREAT time!
We were overwhelmed with your southern hospitality.
Our stay with you was everything we could have imagined. Your Bed and Breakfast was very clean, the bed was comfy and the breakfast was outstanding!!! It was nice to have the opportunity to have met such good people. If we ever head south again we will remember to stop by to spend the night with our new southern friends!

My husband and I truly enjoyed
our visit to Bella La Vita Inn!
Your home is very clean, inviting and peaceful!
We only wish we had had a little more time
to stay and relax.
Your place, located in the heart of Floyd, VA
We also enjoyed the fabulous breakfast
Matt and Lisal prepared.
We have never experienced anything like it!
Thank you for a memorable time!

Our 46th Anniversary Trip
...we drove thru Floyd's only stoplight and found
the Bella La Vita Inn at the edge of town. When we
turned into the driveway we were totally surprised! It was
a very eclectic version of a Tuscan villa with a beautiful fountain
in front of a covered entrance. We went in and one of the owners greeted us. I swear that after 5 minutes, Marilyn and I both felt like old friends that had come to visit. We had a tour and everything was bit of magic. The back yard was of course, a back yard, but it was designed for folks to relax. Cozy and shaded, with the constant tinkle of running water into the Koi pool and robins hopping around on the grass. Shade trees and intimate gathering places were right outside our door. It was a magical. I probably looked like Harry Potter seeing Hogwarts for the first time with my jaw dropped and eyes sparkling with wonderment. Our room was very comfortable
and well-appointed and downright cozy which of course is another word for intimate in the right context - like this one.
There was another first impression too. It was that the owners weren't the lawyers turned B&B host and hostess to fulfill a "dream,"
but rather professionals who knew how to stage the entire experience
with both professionalism and pride. It wasn't a bucket list thing,
but a profession that they seemed 100% suited for.
It showed in the attention to detail everywhere...

Dear Lisal and Matt,
Staying at Bella La Vita was, without a doubt, one of the finest lodging experiences that I have ever had!
Thank you so much for your comfortable and kind friendliness, for the outstanding cuisine and for the joy of being a guest.
It was most memorable and an unforgettable pleasure...your wonderful little dogs were a real bonus!
With true appreciation-
Our wonderful new friends,
Bettye and Lloyd Hankins

Thanks, Daniel for the spontaneous concert!
We especially enjoyed the Bach.
