What a wonderful place to stay!

5 on April 06, 2015

I happened upon this lovely B. & B. on the internet one day and decided to stay because of the great value. It couldn't have been a better experience! Wayne and Linda are so kind and welcoming, and my room (the Iris Room) was absolutely beautiful. It even had its own gas fireplace! Breakfast was wonderful, and I so enjoyed the conversation that I shared with Wayne while I ate. If I am ever in Waynesboro again I will definitely be staying at Belle Hearth!

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

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!
