Finest Southern Hospitality

5 on August 11, 2014

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!

Vineyard touring

Our mini get-a-way plans were to visit several vineyards in the area. Waynesboro is a fantastic location to visit many quality vineyards. The Belle Hearth B&B was perfect accomodations for our get-a-way. The house is simply lovely. The details are wonderful. We enjoyed the Orchid Room. Linda and Wayne were very gracious and made our stay very nice. There any many treats to enjoy along with fantastic breakfast. Lovely front porch too. Walking distance for dinner too!!

Absolutely Excellent B&b

Linda and Wayne are without a doubt the best hosts you could ever ask for. They are so knowledgable about the area and you are treated like royalty when you stay here. If you have any food issues, gluten/vegan/milk or nuts, they will accommodate you to the best that you can ever expect. I cannot say enough about this Bed and Breakfast and I highly recommend this B&B to everyone.

Wayne and Linda have become our friends.... we look forward to our visits at Belle Hearth as we would family. Our favorite room, the Iris Room, is always "waiting" and we feel like we've come "home" for our visit. The food is outstanding, and the company is inviting! Treat yourself to this wonderful place and make some of your own memories. Thank you Wayne and Linda!
