When in Waynesboro Stay Here!

We were delighted with the Victorian décor and Linda and Wayne were perfect hosts. Our room was comfortable and very quiet and the fireplace added that romantic touch. Breakfast was a feast and the other guest provided pleasant conversation. We will be back!

We were only at this lovely place for one night but Wayne and Linda were excellent hosts. The room was very nice and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was a pleasure, and we enjoyed the give and take at the table.

Beautiful Home

Extremely well decorated. Hosts were very knowledgeable about the area and great to talk to. Breakfast was wonderful. Would definitely recommend this B and B to others.

Great break from the trail!!!

My son and I resupplied in Waynesboro during a week long section hike on the AT. Wayne picked us up at the trailhead and took us to the Band B. The service was fantastic - they even did our funky backpacker laundry for free (they refused to take any money)! Thanks, Wayne and Linda.

Quick, but fun.

I took my friend with me to pick up a piece of furniture in Charlottesville. It was her birthday coming up, so I treated her. She is always so "thrifty". We had the suite, so each of us had our own room. It was neat and our hostess was very accommodating.

We were only able to spend one night, but Wayne and Linda were so gracious and welcoming that it would have been a treat to stay much longer. Everything was excellent--and the jars of candy and nuts--and the coffee maker in the hallway were added benefits. We found their recommendations for local dining to be very good and had a great dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay! Thanks.

We had a wonderful time!

Breakfast was extremely tasty. The owners were gracious & kind. We enjoyed sitting by the pool in the evening watching the cats. We had a wonderful time!

Finest Southern Hospitality

My husband and I recently stayed in the Lilac Room at Belle Hearth and enjoyed both the company of the other guests as well as the delightful and engaging hosts, Linda & Wayne. The breakfasts were delicious and varied, the table beautifully set and the conversation animated---the perfect start to our days spent there. Our room was quietly appointed, clean and comfortable. We also enjoyed the company of their cats as we left two of our own at home and missed them. Highly recommended!

We had a wonderful stay at the Belle Hearth B&B this past weekend, July 12-13. The rooms were well furnished and had more amenities than we anticipated. The B&B did not require a 2 night stay, which many do. Our drive from home to the Charlottesville area is less than 3 hours so we only needed one night. The hosts were friendly and gracious. The breakfast was out-of-this world delicious and filling. I did not realize this B&B has a very nice pool so we did not pack our suits. Although our schedule did not allow for time to swim, next time we will keep this in mind. We will be back!
