The room was clean and well-accommodated. The owners were friendly and met our every need. The Belle Hearth is conveniently located within walking distance of local attractions and within easy driving distance of many others. A very nice place to stay and I recommend it.

I am late in posting this. We were there October of 2016. Our hosts were gracious and friendly, the home was very warm and welcoming and immaculate. While I don't do breakfast, my husband was more than happy to partake of my share. The extra cookies/brownies left lying around made us feel like we were home. A great place to launch some wine tasting from... We will definitely be back!

We enjoyed our stay at Belle Hearth B&B. The hosts are gracious, informative, and friendly; the type of folks that could become fast friends. Belle and Mosby made us feel immediately, at home. The B&B was exceptionally clean; the room was welcoming and cozy, and breakfasts were a delight. We certainly would return, if again in the area. D&D

Wayne and Linda were very hospitable and it was a lovely stay. We were there for three nights.
5 on September 16, 2016
This is a wonderful start to a visit of local vineyards, trip on Skyline Drive or Blue Ridge Parkway or a visit to the home gallery of P. Buckley Moss. The hosts, Linda and Wayne, were very welcoming and accommodating. The rooms were set in period furnishings and the queen sized bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was a gourmet delight and the company of other guests from the Netherlands very interesting. We will definitely return.
5 on August 22, 2016
We booked a spur of the moment trip and stayed one night at Belle Hearth. Every room was immaculate and beautifully decorated with exquisite antiques. Breakfast was served on fine china and was delicious. We enjoyed sitting on their front porch in the evening. They provided little extras we were not expecting (ex: cookies in the evening, chocolates in our room). We were intrigued by the history of the house. Linda and Wayne made our visit very enjoyable. They have set the bar high for any future get-away. We would definitely stay there again if we visited the area.
5 on July 02, 2016
Stayed at the Belle Hearth for a quiet weekend. Linda and Wayne were gracious host and went out of their way to make our every need their pleasure. Rooms are elegantly decorated and spotless. Breakfast was a gourmet delight along with great conversation among the guest. Wayne joined the discussions adding some local flare as well as suggestions of places to visit and various hikes within close drive of the inn. We will definitely return.

We stayed at Belle and Hearth for an overnight to explore for the first time the Shenandoah Valley area after a business trip to Fairfax, VA. We loved our room with its very comfortable bedding, private bathroom, and tasteful decor. Our hosts, Linda and Wayne, were friendly and both sat with us to chat for more than 30 minutes given their own busy daily routines and appointments. They shared with us about their family stories, how they started the bed and breakfast business, and the upkeep they have done to their beautiful home. We also appreciated their patient listening to our sharing of our travel experiences. The delicious breakfast was served to us in the dining room starting with a fresh fruit cup and followed by quiche, bacon, muffins, coffee, and orange juice. There were also bottles of water, cans of coke, and other beverages in the refrigerator upstairs next to our room. We enjoyed their gorgeous garden and took some time to relax on the porch. The location of Belle and Hearth is also perfect for our visit to the nearby University of Virginia and the historic town of Charlottesville. We were glad to have stayed at Belle and Hearth and would look forward to going back if there is an opportunity.

My wife and I are thru hiking the AT and really needed a day of rest. We were thrilled to find the Belle Hearth. Linda and Wayne were so friendly and helpful. Wayne picked us up at the trail and gave us a ride to a local outfitter. Linda helped us with a much needed laundry cleaning. The room was very comfortable and clean and also had a gas fireplace. Groceries and great dining were within easy walking distance. Breakfast was amazing and we really enjoyed Wayne visiting with us afterwards. We left feeling more like friends than guests. We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend this B&B.
5 on March 20, 2016
Linda and Wayne are so welcoming! The house is beautiful! The breakfasts were so good and the presentation was lovely! The room we stayed in had a fireplace and a big comfy bed. We will definitely be back!
5 on March 07, 2016
This place was fantastic and the hosts are very warm and professional. Has a great old fashioned look and feel inside and out. And, since it is in Waynesboro rather than Charlottesville, you are in striking distance of the region's attractions without the crowds of Charlottesville. The breakfasts were really nice twists on traditional breakfast fare--quiche, croissants, sausage, and fruit with nice touches and attractive presentation. Really felt like we took a step back in time but had all the modern comforts. I have already recommended this B&B to coworkers and plan on having my parents stay here when they visit the region.
4.2 on February 22, 2016
I decided at the last minute to take a trip for my birthday this past weekend. My boyfriend and I stayed here because of the great reviews. Linda and Wayne were very helpful on providing ideas of what to do. They even called and made dinner reservations for us the night we arrived, as we were running a little late due to traffic. Overall, the room was clean and comfortable (with our own fireplace!) and the breakfast was yummy! We had a great weekend getaway.
5 on January 10, 2016
My son and I stayed in the Iris Room while he was taking a class at the blacksmithing school which is right around the corner from the B&B. Breakfast was outstanding both mornings. It has a real comfy feel that you can't even get at home. Nicely decorated with lots of things to look at, books to read, and candy jars to take samples from. The bed was not the most comfortable to me, but the surroundings made up for that. Thank you Wayne and Linda.
5 on January 03, 2016
My husband and I stayed at the Belle Hearth on Christmas Eve. The home was decorated so nicely for Christmas! Wayne and Linda were wonderful hosts and their two cats were great to have around. Waking up Christmas morning after a good nights sleep in our comfy bed and enjoying a delicious homemade breakfast was just what we wanted! We can't wait to visit again!
5 on December 13, 2015
Wayne and Linda were gracious and friendly hosts. The room was comfortable and the breakfasts fantastic! I very much appreciate the welcoming atmosphere and particularly the adorable feline "co-hosts" Belle and Mosby!
5 on December 10, 2015
Wayne and Linda greeted us warmly in their beautifully holiday themed foyer. The Christmas decorations were just the icing on the cake as the B&B is wonderfully furnished and decorated even without the holiday items. Wayne and Linda shared information about the area and stories about the B&B which we really enjoyed. We were in the Magnolia Suite which worked out perfectly for us, each having our own rooms with a jack-and-jill bathroom between us. The beds were very comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious and leisurely giving us time to chat and visit with our fellow travelers. House cats Belle and Mrs. Mosby provided me with lots of kitty love so I didn't miss my own kitties quite so much. I highly recommend this B&B and would love to stay there again.
4.8 on November 23, 2015
Our first B&B experience in the Waynesboro area, we were welcomed by a lovely couple whose Victorian-style home made it a grand stay. The decorations, the welcome, and the knowledge of the innkeepers made this a home-away-from-home experience. Our rooms were clean to the brim and the fireplace was a nice added touch. The place was comfy, cozy, and filled with good decorations, interior, and design to make it something that is not a typical weekend getaway. Every morning we were served not just breakfast, but a breakfast that you wouldn't normally get at a normal getaway or inn. The innkeepers fed us grapefruit with toasted coconut, then an apple-filled croissant with cream cheese that was hearty, yet sweet, and the most crispy-bacon that your taste buds could imagine. And this was just one morning. Linda and Wayne, by telling their own life stories, have been in this business for years and they retain professional, yet hospitable presence. We would definitely come back to this B&B in the future. The only thing we do not recommend is the option to have a winery or brewery tour with your stay. We felt that the value for what we paid and the experience we received were different. We were told that we would go to these wineries/brewery (you can choose up to three of the local options) and experience not just tastings, but we assumed that a full-wine tour would take place. However, we were just driven to the places and we had to pay for the wine tasting fees up front in addition to the costs of the tour. The actually "brewery" tour was just a restaurant where we had to pay for our own flight of beers that they offer just to regular customers. It is recommended that the guest prepare his or her own tour beforehand. However, we would definitely come back to this place in the future to spring away from it all. Thank you Linda and Wayne!

Wayne and Linda were very gracious hosts. The inn was beautifully decorated with many antiques. Very comfy bed, warm hospitality and delicious breakfast. Restaurants within walking distance...a charming town with lots of history.
5 on November 10, 2015
I highly recommend staying at this Bed and Breakfast. They are located in a cute and quant part of town. They are not far from the breweries, wineries, or really anywhere you can think of. Wayne and Linda were very sweet and knowledgeable about the area. It was mine and my boyfriends first time at a bed and breakfast. I loved the room we stayed in with our own private bath. The décor was great and felt like home. Breakfast was served a little early for me, but well worth getting up to eat. I would absolutely stay there again!!!
4.6 on October 27, 2015
My husband and I had a wonderful 2 night stay here last week. Wayne and Linda are excellent hosts and dining with the other guests was fun. Breakfast was delicious both mornings and presented beautifully on fine china. We loved the fireplace in the bedroom. They gave us many ideas for things to do and places to eat and . We will definitely recommend Belle Hearth to others.
5 on October 22, 2015
My new wife & I stayed here on Oct. 13, 2015, for one night traveling on our honeymoon. As you can see, we rated Belle Hearth excellent on all categories. The Innkeepers, Linda & Wayne, are very pleasant and helpful. Not only was the breakfast great, they recommended a wonderful restaurant for dinner. We will definitely stay there again when we next drive through the Waynesboro or Staunton area. Pete & Jane Cornish

A beautiful home, with every room unique. A short walk to some nice restuarants on Main Street. Wonder breakfast. Thank you.
5 on July 19, 2015
We just returned from two wonderful nights in this inn. Linda & Wayne are the perfect hosts and the inn is beautiful. We enjoyed the room and the breakfasts. It was fun meeting and talking with the other interesting guest at breakfast both days. We can't say enough good things about the Bell Hearth. Thanks, Ann & Noel
5 on April 30, 2015
A friend and I spent two wonderful nights at the Belle Hearth Bed and Breakfast. We had the Magnolia Suite which had two rooms connected by a bathroom. The rooms were great; comfortable beds and beautifully decorated. The B & B was in a great location and a quiet neighborhood. The Innkeepers, Linda and Wayne were delightful and breakfast was delicious. I will definitely be going back!
4.2 on April 28, 2015
Wayne and Linda went out of their way to make us feel at home in their home. They explained about the home to us and made sure to let us know that they were available any time if we needed something. The Orchid Room was very clean and had everything that we needed to make our stay comfortable. We have already recommended this place to other family members!
5 on April 26, 2015
From the bottomless M&M jar and 24hr single cup coffee/tea maker to the high thread count linen and plush bath towels, the Belle Hearth and hosts Linda and Wayne provide a 5 star experience. A year ago we visited for the first time and enjoyed ourselves well enough to repeat the experience this year. Looking to put together a weekend get-away that included exercise and an opportunity to celebrate our anniversary, we discovered Waynesboro's Run-the-Valley Park-to-Park 1/2 Marathon, the Belle Hearth, the surrounding communities of Waynesboro and Staunton, and the wide range of good local food and events offered a fitting match for our highest expectations. We could not have put it all together though without the kind advice and suggestions from Linda and Wayne. They are gracious hosts and their extensive knowledge and appreciation for local history and business got us pointed in the right direction. The amenities are plentiful. The historic home and furnishings are cozy. Linda and Wayne are friendly, attentive hosts whose style creates an environment that brings guests together for a wonderful full course family style breakfast served on fine china and silver, and invites pleasant conversation after a quiet and comfortable night of sleep. The term "affordable luxury" is fitting and we look forward to our next stay at the Belle Hearth!
5 on April 16, 2015
Linda and Wayne were lovely!! Very knowledgeable about the area with things to do and food to eat!! This is our second time staying at the lovely Belle Hearth. We go to the Virginia Fly Fishing and Wine Festival every year. Belle Hearth is within walking distant of the festival along with many local shops. The food is great and looks beautiful. The home is beautifully decorated; I love all the dishes and antiques! We feel right at home and we hope to come back for my birthday!!
5 on April 15, 2015
We had a great week-end stay at the Belle Hearth. Innkeepers Linda and Wayne were friendly, helpful and prepared wonderful breakfasts. We enjoyed the authentic antiques and decor. The wrap around porch was one of our favorite places to hang out, swing, rock and sit. It was unpretentious and lovely there, very relaxing.
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!
5 on March 13, 2015
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.

Wayne and Linda were so welcoming in their beautiful Bed and Breakfast. The room was immaculate and cozy but spacious. The breakfasts were memorable.

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.
4.6 on October 13, 2014
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.
3.8 on October 09, 2014
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.
4.6 on September 13, 2014
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.
5 on September 01, 2014
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!
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!
4.8 on July 14, 2014
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!
5 on May 29, 2014
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!!
5 on May 01, 2014
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.
5 on April 21, 2014
We had a great time at Bell Hearth; Wayne and Linda are fantastic hosts. Arranged an in-room couples massage. Thanks for a nice stay!
5 on March 03, 2014
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!

Everything has always been outstanding. Nice place to spend your time.

Winter/off-season stay! A caregivers night away! I was queen for a day/night! I booked the Orchid Suite! The lovely fainting couch/claw footed white bath tub, along with 'Nature's Sounds' machine playing birds chirping, fireplace going/candle lit, had a queen's springtime getaway in the bitter cold of winter! Wayne and Linda are very hospitable in every way...kindness/snacks everywhere/gourmet over the top breakfast for any queen/even flowers/wine/roses teapot with cream and snacks delivered to fainting couch! Treats and food homemade and delicious! A caregiver/Queen's Getaway #1!!!! This is 1st of many respite stays for me! I love UK , Victoriana, and teatime and this place was just my 'Cup Of Tea'!
5 on January 27, 2014
My wife and I had a great stay at Belle Hearth. Our room was wonderful and Wayne was so helpful and accommodating! The breakfast was excellent. If you are traveling in the Waynesboro/Charlottesville area we would certainly recommend staying at the Belle Hearth!

My husband & I celebrated our 5 year anniversary at Belle Hearth. This was our second time staying and the time was as lovely as ever. Excellent, sweet Inn keepers, delicious food, nice rooms, and a fantastic value!
5 on November 29, 2013
My husband and I stayed at the Belle Hearth for our 30th anniversary. Our stay was for 3 nights and we would have loved to stay longer if only work did not call us back! Linda and Wayne are fantastic Innkeepers who make you feel at home and welcome as soon as you walk in the door. Each of our breakfasts were wonderful and the house is charming and cozy. We also ordered a picnic lunch for our trip back and as expected is was yummy and generous. We will definitely stay at the Belle Hearth when we return to the area. We came as strangers and left as friends. Thank you Linda and Wayne for your great conversations at breakfast and your warm hospitality.
5 on November 24, 2013
Bell Hearth was our first B&B stay and it exceeded our expectations tremendously. We enjoyed our walk to downtown Waynesboro and having a very relaxing supper at a local restaurant. The house is very clean and has lovely decorations with that all enticing wrap-around front porch inviting all to have a seat and enjoy. Breakfast was delicious and the owners went out of their way in ensuring that all the follks had enough to eat. Definitely will recommend it to our friends and family who may be visiting that area of Virginia.
5 on November 21, 2013
Belle Hearth is an outstanding B&B. The rooms are decorated with love and dedication. Not even a single item is missing. Linda and Wayne are great hosts. Their breakfast was just superb. They gave a perfect recommendation for dinner in the neighborhood. Unfortunately, we stayed only one night - this place deserves more. Stop searching for alternatives - this is the one!
4.4 on November 12, 2013
Our stay at Belle Hearth was quite enjoyable. My husband and I have stayed at many B&B's and Belle Hearth was one of the nicest and most reasonable. It was very clean and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was delicious and Linda and Wayne made us feel very welcome in their lovely home. This B&B is one we will return to again.

A truly great find. Very close to a good restaurant for dinner also. Charming Victorian home, complete with 2 delightful pussy cats. Excellent breakfast.
3.8 on November 06, 2013
We always want to stay in a cozy spot with a private bath and tub [just in case my wife wants to take one]. Although we didn't realize this location was on a main street, we didn't miss being "out in the country." The room was overloaded with tschockes and knick knacks - all interesting! The bed was very comfy - and we did spend some time in the other room watching TV.
5 on October 14, 2013
This was our first time staying in a bed and breakfast. Belle Hearth Inn exceeded our expectations. Very clean and the inn was gorgeous. Linda and Wayne were very helpful and provided us with a lot of information about the area. Breakfast was delicious. Jane and Scott Poates

The owners were very accommodating and graciously met my gluten-free dietary needs. The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. We were within walking distance to downtown restaurants and enjoyed the walking tour of the historic homes in the neighborhood.
5 on September 11, 2013
My wife and I took a vacation trip to Waynesboro, VA in August 2013 and stayed 4 nights at the Belle Hearth B & B. Our hosts and innkeepers Linda and Wayne were very warm and gracious and treated us like family. The house as beautiful and the breakfast creations were just wonderful. Enjoyed our visit very much and would highly recommend.
4.6 on September 09, 2013
This is one of the best B&B stays we have ever had, Wayne and Linda are very hospitable and kind. The history of the home and the garden are another delight. We are looking forward to our next visit and hope to stay longer next time.

Wayne and Linda are the best! They were so helpful and made us feel right at home. Breakfasts are fabulous. Enjoyed the many antiques and beautiful fireplaces.
4.8 on July 26, 2013
We visited Belle Hearth for our stay during our 4-day motorcycle trip to Skyline Drive. We loved it! Wayne and Linda were wonderful hosts, cooks and made us feel so at home from the time we arrived until our departure. The house is beautiful, with lots of charm and decorated beautifully. We will definitely stay there again on our next trip! Our only regret is that we didn't stay long enough to enjoy the pool.
5 on July 15, 2013
This was our first experience at a B&B. We were impressed with the house and Linda and Wayne were the most down to earth great people. They acted as cooks, concierges and friends. The breakfasts were absolutely wonderful and the conversations with the other guests were enjoyable. It is so quiet that we were unaware of other guests until breakfast. Enjoying the pool is a must - it was so refreshing. Such a great experience - one that I would recommend.
5 on May 13, 2013
This was our first stay in a b&b and it was the best experience. Linda and Wayne are the best. The breakfast was great and the house was very cozy with much history. We will be back in the future.
5 on May 10, 2013
We had a great time there, the house is beautiful with plenty of details and very well kept and clean, my two daughters thought they were in a princess castle, they loved it! The breakfast was very good also, and the housekeepers very nice and attentive.

This is a good location with easy access to Staunton and Charlottesville. Lots to do in the area with the Blue Ridge Parkway and Frontier Culture Museum. Great breakfast and clean rooms.
4.6 on April 29, 2013
After a long day of hiking in the mountains, the Belle & Hearth was the absolutely perfect place to rest. The bed was comfortable, the room temperature was consistent (as opposed to those hot / cold / hot hotel rooms), the decor was lovely,and the living room was welcoming. The two kitties are very friendly, and were very willing to give me a nice bit of "kitty love" during my stay. Breakfast was quite filling and very tasty, and a perfect way to start another day in the mountains. If I could have stayed longer, I would have!
5 on March 24, 2013
Stayad her for a getaway and the inn is gorgeous. The innkeepers, Linda and Wayne were gracious host and made us feel like family. Breakfast was a well presented feast of fruit, muffins and a fantastic quiche along with a brown sugar bacon. Our room was comfortable and well decorated. Stay here or you will miss a great experience.
4.8 on February 14, 2013
My husband and I stayed at Belle Hearth for two nights. Linda and Wayne were excellent hosts and very helpful in recommending local attractions. We stayed in the Rose Room, which was both quaint and clean. Breakfast both mornings was delicious and the couple was accommodating of my pregnancy food restrictions. Linda and Wayne are excellent conversationalists and we really enjoyed dining with the other guests.
5 on December 05, 2012
OUTSTANDING B&B!! Visited Walton Mountain Museum in Schuyler and Monticello in Charlottesville on separate days - based out of Belle Hearth. REALLY felt like we were coming home each night. Checked in at the end of an Open House day - Linda was STILL friendly, gracious, and gave us a full tour of her beautiful home (even the empty rooms), including details about the history of the home. We stayed in the Magnolia Room - but any room would have been totally comfortable. Bed was very comfortable - linens were top quality. Wayne and Linda prepared and served a scrumpious breakfast each day; well-paced and each item was delicious. One guest in another party had special dietary needs - he was accommodated effortlessly. These innkeepers obviously care about their guests and their beautiful home, and work hard to ensure you have an unforgettable experience. We like to try different B&Bs - but Belle Hearth is SO good, we'll stay there again when we visit this area.
5 on November 20, 2012
We stayed at the Belle Hearth for a terrific couple of days. Linda and Wayne are fantaxstic hosts making our stay that much better. The atmosphere, food, location and company could not have been better. We will definitely consider staying at the Belle Hearth B&B again.
5 on November 07, 2012
My husband and I used the Belle Hearth B&B as our base of operations during our honeymoon - our room was lovely, the food was spectacular, the atmosphere was homey Victorian, the location was incredibly convenient, and our hosts were extremely friendly and gracious. It couldn't have been bettered.
4.4 on October 22, 2012
We had a wonderful and very relaxing stay at the Belle Hearth. The food was amazing and Linda and Wayne were wonderful hosts. They spent enough time with you to make you feel welcome but didn't intrude on your privacy at all. Will definitely consider staying there again if we are in the area. Marvelous collection of antiques.
5 on October 21, 2012
We stayed at the Belle Hearth from 10/19-10/21 and we had an outstanding time. Linda and Walter are the most gracious hosts of any b&b that we have stayed at. They are also gourmet cheft! The breakfasts each morning were diverse and delicious. We felt welcomed as family and were genuinely sad to leave. We got to know the other guests at the property, and really enjoyed everything about the atmosphere of the inn. The rooms are cozy, comfortable, clean, and inviting. There are little snacks situated everywhere throughhout the house in case you need a late night snack. Overall we highly recommend this property.
4.8 on October 21, 2012
We booked in advance from UK and did not know what to expect. The Belle Hearth is a lovely restful place to stay. Linda and Wayne are welcoming and informative hosts. Our room was clean and very comfortable. Every comfort had been thought of. We had a beautifully served and delicious breakfast the next morning. Highly recommend a stay here.
3.8 on September 20, 2012
We arrived late and only stayed the night leaving early before breakfast, but in the short time we were there it was lovely. We stayed in the Rose room and the bed was very comfortable, the room very quiet. Wouldn't hesitate in staying again or reccomending to others.

We really enjoyed our night at the Belle Hearth and the breakfast was amazing.

We had a lovely two night stay in the Iris Room and indulged in the Wine Lover Package. We had a lovely basket of wine, bread, dipping sauce, and glasses waiting for us when we arrived. A private wine tasting was scheduled in advance and proved to be a fun experience. Linda packed a delicious picnic basket for us that we enjoyed after a rigorous hike to Humpback Rocks. Breakfast was superb, host and hostess were helpful and accommodating, and the home was beautiful! We can't wait to plan our next trip back to the Belle Hearth.
5 on August 07, 2012
We stayed at the Bella Hearth B & B in Waynesboro, Va., arriving on July 22, 2012 spending two nights there and had a wonderful time. Linda and Wayne Mielczasz were very gracious and accommodating; we spent several hours talking with them about the area, the B & B and our common backgrounds. Even Linda and I had the same birthday and also closed on our house on the same day as they closed on the B & B which was also our birthdays. Belle Hearth was just what we were looking for, a nice quiet get away with very nice people. Linda and Wayne served delicious breakfasts with some wonderful conversations. The area has a lot to offer, we went hiking on Skyline Drive which is only a 10 minute drive away, did some shopping and had a great dinner at the Mill Street Grill in Staunton, Virginia just 15 minutes away. There were several other restaurants that Linda and Wayne suggested, however, we didn’t get a chance to visit them but, we will, when we return to Belle Hearth in the fall for the foliage season.

Although our visit was short, it exceeded all expectations.
4.4 on July 08, 2012
We were made to feel very welcome in this lovely old house which had been carefully restored to its previous glory, with charming garden porch, entrance rooms/staircase and amazing bedroom. We stayed only 1 night but Linda and Wayne are charming hosts and we wished we could have stayed longer. Breakfast was homemade and we shared this with 2 charming couples, all sharing the 1 large dining table. As we arrived late and in need of food we were supplied with a recommendation for a restaurant locally, We would recommend a stay at Belle Hearth Pat and Jane UK (23rd May 2012)
5 on July 07, 2012
We stayed for two nights while visitng local wineries and touring the area. The Victorian style home was lovely, clean and inviting. Linda and Wayne are so kind, friendly and pay attention to every detail to make your stay "special". We enjoyed the pool and the lovely porch on a very hot Va day. We stayed in the Iris room and found it to be perfect. The breakfasts were great and we very much enjoyed the table conversations. For lunch we enjoyed a highly recommended pizza at the Blue Mountain Brewery. Dinner was a three block walk to The Green Leaf- fabulous!! Also, do not miss the newly opened Bold Rock (south on Rt 151) for great tasting and refreshing hard cider- hands down a winner. Cannot wait to visit Belle Hearth B and B again. Thank you Linda and Wayne.

My mother and I visited Belle Hearth on June 3rd for one night as it was a convenient stop after attending my nieces wedding in Charlottesville VA to regroup before going on through Skyline drive. After the hectic weekend it was a great retreat. I only wish we decided to stay 2 nights instead. The gardens and interior décor was up my isle as I love Victorian. The front gardens are picturesque and many memorial photos are now in my collection. Sitting on the wrap around porch in the evening was very relaxing; you almost forgot you were on a main street. I love that many of the items in the house have a story behind them and that some pieces are personal to either Linda or Wayne. Now a month later the story about the picture of the ancestral woman in the Iris room still stays with me. Retreating to our beautiful Iris and Rose rooms was a pleasure. I took the Iris room as blue is a favorite color of mine. A small but comfortable room was just perfect. From the fireplace to the high four poster bed and the antique furniture and private bath I was able to unwind and had a great night sleep. My Mom’s accommodations was equally satisfying with a big and bright room, she hated to leave. Linda and Wayne could not have been more hospitable. They were a pleasure to meet, and not the type of people I would have expected to meet in the South. I have been to my fair share of B&B’s and have not met more welcoming and genuinely friendly hosts. We highly recommend Belle Hearth to anyone looking for a little Victorian charm and beauty in this lovely neighborhood home.

My husband and I were looking for a short getaway for a few days and my husband found Belle Hearth. I'm so glad he did. Wayne and Linda gave us a warm welcome and were very informative about things to do in the surrounding area. I'm sure we'll be back again!
5 on June 02, 2012
Only a couple of miles from the southern entrance to the Skyline Drive. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The Inn is beautiful and the breakfast was delicious. I'll be back!
5 on June 01, 2012
We would recommend this B&B to all our friends. The wrap around porch with chairs and swing was a great way to start the day and end the evenings. Linda was visitng family while we were there. Wayne did an excellent job in making us feel at home; he sure knows how to cook homemade meals. He is very knowledgeable regarding Waynesboro and all the other towns and attractions. You will not regret staying at Belle Hearth B&B!
4.8 on May 28, 2012
My husband & I stayed 2 nights at Belle Hearth. Linda & Wayne were terrific hosts. We had the Magnolia Suite & it was wonderful! Breakfasts were delicious and talking with other guests over breakfast was very interesting & entertaining! Hope to be back this way in the future & will look them up again.

My wife and I were bringing a motorcycle back to NC from Vermont. I had surprised my wife and made the trip a Bed and Breakfast themed trip. We stayed at Belle Hearth on the last night of our trip. Belle Hearth has a beautiful presentation and entrance with a lovely garden. We were greeted by Linda and immediately felt welcome and comfortable. Our room was equally beautiful and extremely comfortable. We had the best night's sleep at Belle Hearth. Many B&B's do not have attached bathrooms with the rooms. This was not the case here and welcomed plus. We stayed in the Orchid Room and found out is was the original owners room, which made it kind of neat. The breakfast was also the best of all of the Inns. Overall we had a great stay and would definitely like to return.
4.2 on May 15, 2012
This was a repeat for us. We much enjoyed our stay, and will likely stay there again. As repeat guests we received a generous discount. Wayne and Linda are indeed gracious hosts, with stories about Waynesboro and their neighborhood, and good recommendations both for places to dine and places to walk or visit. They are avid collectors of historic memorabilia. They fed us gourmet breakfasts, served family-style at the large table in their dining room. We especially enjoyed our conversations with other guests. The "rating" choices are a little ambiguous, since a choice could be both "Outstanding" and "Met my expectations", especially since this was our third visit. Our three-star ratings should be taken in that light.
5 on April 30, 2012
I stayed here for two nights with my boyfriend. We're a bit younger (21 & 25) and had a fantastic stay here. It was so comfortable and welcoming. There is so much history that Linda & Wayne have packed throughout the house. They're super informative on the town of Wayensboro and the surrounding towns. The breakfast & conversation were perfect. We'll be back for Sure !

What a delightful place to stay! I recommend this Inn to anyone looking for a clean, comfortable home away from home!
4.0 on February 22, 2012
My husband and I spent 2 nights in the Rose Room and felt relaxed and comfortable--like we were staying in our "best friends' home". Wayne and Linda were warm and welcoming and we were impressed with the "attention to detail" in cleanliness, furnishings, and the food was amazing. We highly recommend to anyone looking for a weekend get away or a trip to the mountains - any time of year.
5 on December 26, 2011
My daughter and I drove up to visit the Blue Ridge Mountains just before Christmas and we stayed 4 nights at Belle Hearth. We were very pleased and impressed with our stay. The inn owners were lovely people and very helpful. The inn was absolutely gorgeous and the food outstanding. We got a very good rate on our room and were charmed to have a fireplace in our own room. Can't say enough about Belle Hearth, would definitely recommend it!
4.6 on December 13, 2011
My husband and I were sampling our way through the "Brew Ridge Trail" and looking for a place to crash for the night. Belle Hearth was perfect for what we needed. Linda and Wayne kindly accommodated our semi-late (8:30pm arrival) and were very gracious hosts. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was outstanding!
5 on November 30, 2011
Would highly recommend a stay at the Belle Hearth. I've stayed at B&Bs many times--this is one of the best! Thank you Linda & Wayne!
4.8 on November 28, 2011
We stayed at the Belle Hearth during a weekend getaway with a group of friends. The owners were so friendly and made us feel so welcome. The house is nicely decorated. I felt like I was staying at a friends house. Breakfast was wonderful. We will definitely be staying here again during our next trip to the mountains for wine tastings and fun.
4.6 on November 28, 2011
A lovely place to stay. Seasonal decorations all over the house. I enjoyed the atsmosphere and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were out of this world!!
5 on November 15, 2011
The innkeepers were attentive, knowlegeable, and great cooks. The rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. Breakfasts were fantastic and satisfying. Lots to do in the area. Do not pass up this wonderful inn,
4.8 on November 15, 2011
We stayed for two nights in the Magnolia Suite. Some of the fixtures date back more than a century to the construction of this lovely home. We had concerns going in that the dust would bother us, but the place is kept so impeccably clean, it was not a problem. Breakfast was a multi-course presentation in itself, and was creatively prepared. The outside wrap-around porch is very relaxing. This B&B is located near so many things to do, only a couple of miles from the entrance of Skyline Drive/Blue Ridge Parkway, about a half hour from Charlottesville, and a short drive from several beautiful wineries. If you're not sure what you want to do, just ask Linda and Wayne. They have a treasure trove of suggestions. Overall an excellent time.
5 on November 09, 2011
We had a wonderful stay. The Host and Hostess was so kind. We felt right at home. The food was outstanding. The whole house was beautiful. It is a peaceful and lovely place to get away...
4.6 on November 05, 2011
We unfortunately had to arrive late, but our hosts were very gracious. The room was beautiful, and comfortable, with a great gas fireplace! I am enamored with the architecture. Given a chance, we'd return again. Great meeting you both. Kelly and David

Antiques definitely abound in every square inch of space and are gorgeous. If you like rooms with more open and empty space, you'll be happier elsewhere. If you love beautiful dishes and flowery decor, you'll love this place. Arriving after dark was a bit uncomfortable because of low lighting in the main entryway and parlor. We prefer warmly lit spaces, especially when days are colder and darker outside. Innkeepers were congenial and accommodating, though, and the bed was extremely cozy. Enjoyed the warmth of the fire in the hearth. Home baked goodies were delicious and breakfast table conversations delightful.
5 on October 28, 2011
My wife and I have visited The Belle Hearth B&B many times over the past six years. The experience has been totally awesome. I feel at home! The ambience and the hospitality of Wayne and Linda (The Innkeepers) are second to none! Linda and Wayne are absolutely committed to making your stay most enjoyable. And... If all that is not enough, breakfast in the morning... well, let me just say, imho, The Best! It begins around 8:30am in the parlor, close enough to take in the aroma of that morning's fare. Wayne usually hears me strumming my six string and offers a cup of his fine java. Soon a few guests will join in and the fun begins. Great conversation!!! Delicious food!!! Linda and Wayne, while serving and attending to every request, are the consumate host and hostess!!! Respectfully submitted by Joe & Carole...

We love the comfortable, relaxed atmosphere at Belle Hearth. Innkeepers are very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Delicious breakfasts! We look forward to our next visit when visiting Waynesboro. Carole & Joe

The inn keepers are very sociable and provide help about things to do in the area when asked. We stayed in the Orchard room 10/21/2011-10/22/2011. The room is large with a very comfortable King bed. There was a small day bed in the room as well as a side chair and small TV. The bath is large with a claw tub/shower. We liked the room although the first night the tempeture was cool. Wayne cut up the heat, so the next night the tempeture was fine. The breakfast is very good and pleantiful. We really enjoyed the company with the other guests at breakfast. So much so that out last day we sat around the dining room table and chatted for about an hour and a half. There is very little to do in Waynesboro, so we spent our time in Lexington and Staunton. I would recommend this inn.

Linda and Wayne were very nice and we enjoyed our stay. Next time we are in Waynesboro area we will stay at Belle Hearth Bed and Breakfast. Bill and Sandra
3.8 on October 19, 2011
Fantastic quirky period house crammed with antiques and interesting items. Very warm welcome with helpful advice and a lovely breakfast. The Belle Hearth looks rural but is in a beautiful avenue close to the town centre, an easy walk to find a restaurant and would recommend the Green Leaf Grill. Mosby the cat is the star of the show.

Belle Hearth is everything that you hope for when you go to a B&B. Beautiful, friendly, immaculately clean, friendly, and reasonably priced. We can't wait to stay again. Joe & Diane Brunetti, Baltimore, MD
4.2 on October 17, 2011
Excellent bedding - soft & luxurious. Innkeepers accommodated our special food restrictions, and were very informative about the Blue Ridge area. We enjoyed sitting on the porch swing in the evening - nice quiet neighborhood.
4.8 on October 17, 2011
I had a fantastic stay with Wayne and Linda at Belle Hearth. The Iris room is very nice and has tons of charm. Every breakfast (I had 4) was absolutely amazing and all were distinctive. Thanks Wayne and Linda, I hope to be able to come again!
4.6 on October 16, 2011
Very cordial host, food and accomodations were excellent. Would stay again in a heartbeat. Beautiful home.
4.8 on October 12, 2011
We are so pleased to have stayed at the Belle Hearth. Our room was wonderful and cozy. The breakfasts ~ well, how elegant and DELICIOUS. Linda and Wayne don't have to go out of their way to please anyone. It seems to come so natural to them both. We have already made a reservation for next year at the same time and I can't wait until our next stay in December.

5 on October 08, 2011
Linda and Wayne are wonderful people who take great care of their guests. We plan stay there again when we are in the Waynesboro area. The old Victorian house and furnishings are beautiful. Breakfast was done very nicely and the coffee was over-the-top.
3.6 on October 04, 2011
My wife and I spent our anniversary in the Waynesboro area and really enjoyed our stay at the Belle Hearth. They are super friendly, very helpful and are conveniently located! We had a wonderful time!
5 on September 29, 2011
This was our second stay at the inn. We stayed in the Magnolia Suite again as we like having the sitting room to relax in. We toured the sites within an hour's drive of Waynesboro. The inn was decorated for the fall season and was immaculate. The breakfasts were delicious and so elegantly presented. Linda and Wayne are such gracious innkeepers who seem to enjoy sharing their beautiful home with it's rich history.
5 on September 28, 2011
Wonderful experience and superb service. We would definitely highly recommend the Bell Hearth in Waynesboro and stay there again. The breakfast included with the stay was outstanding and served by the owners.
5 on September 15, 2011
Lovely home and we were made very welcome. Met some interesting people and Linda and Wayne were very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and places to go. Breakfast was freshly cooked each morning. Lovely stay would recommend to anybody thinking of staying there. You cant go wrong!
5 on September 07, 2011
My family and I (there are five of us) decided to take a quick trip before school started and decided, based on the reviews, to stay at Belle Hearth. We are so glad we did! It more than lived up to the reviews. We stayed in one of the suites and the beds were comfortable, the rooms were clean and beautiful and the house was quiet even though there were other guests. All the readily available snacks and desserts were a hit with my 18 and 22 year old sons and my 7 year old daughter. The owners were absolutely accomodating and do a great job at giving suggestions on things to do and places to eat around the area. We LOVED Scotto's Italian Restaurant and Klines Ice Cream! We looked forward to breakfast every morning! Delicious!! They really try to accomodate all dietary needs. There were plenty of things to do in the area (don't miss the Safari Park)! We all agreed that this was one of our best vacations ever and will definitely be back!!!! Thanks Linda and Wayne for allowing us into your lovely home and for making this a truly wonderful and relaxing experience!

We stayed in the Belle Hearth B&B on our trip through the Blue Ridge and Shenandoah Valley. Set in the rather bleak though conveniently located town of Waynesboro, the Belle Heart is an oasis of warmth and comfort. Very friendly and helpful hosts.
4.2 on September 01, 2011
Wonderful place to stay. This was my first stay in a B&B. I definitely want to go back!
4.6 on September 01, 2011
Small blue collar town in the middle of the Shenandoah Valley. It is close to major highways and attractions yet tucked away on a side street of this town. Good restaurants are a 20-25 minute drive yet that was the attractiveness of this B&B in that we came home from dinner and sat on the swing on the wraparound porch at night, watching the few cars and people that passed by. We will visit again some fall to see central Virginia's fall foliage.
4.6 on September 01, 2011
The owners were very helpful in telling about local attractions and dining options. Their breakfast was exceptional!
4.4 on August 18, 2011

My daughter and I spent 4 days in Virginia and stayed at the Belle Hearth. The owners were very polite and accommodating and the breakfast provided was very good. They were always available to help with directions and to answer questions. the only thing was that the room was too warm and we couldn't regulate it. I would recommend it. It was very reasonably priced.
5 on August 13, 2011
Excellent stay and great service. Breakfast was tasty, they even made a special dish for my wife who is a vegetarian. Would recommend.
4.8 on August 04, 2011
Great Innkeepers who made us feel right at home...a super nice couple! Our rooms were comfy and we slept well. The price was great. We had a large room with a connecting bath, that adjoined another room just right for our 13 yr. old granddaughter! The breakfast was delicious and we had the BEST SCONES I have ever had!! We would definitely return and highly recommend this warm inviting home filled to the brim with antiques and knick knacks and a flowering English style garden. The wrap around porch was also lovely. The Harmon's/Chino Hills, CA

Hospitality is second to none. Linda and Wayne make you feel right at home. The breakfasts are amazing. It is impossible to leave the table hungry. If you need any guidance in sightseeing, dining, wine tasting or anything else, Linda and Wayne are available with a wealth of information. We stayed in the Orchid Room and a more comfortable room is hard to find. The B&B is centrally located between Staunton and Charlottesville. It is also closely located to I-81 and Skyline Drive and the Blueridge Parkway. If you are into wineries, there are any number within driving distance. Belle Hearth is a great place for a get-away. Let's not forget Mosby.

The bed and breakfast owners were lovely. They shared ideas with us and we enjoyed meeting the other couples staying there.

Very nice well kept place convenient for the Blue Ridge Parkway and Shenandoah National Park/Skyline Drive. We had a hot night in June and missed having AC.
3.8 on June 24, 2011
Something different and interesting to look at wherever you rest your eyes. Decorated with lots of interesting items. Our room was very comfortable, our host very helpful and friendly. Who could forget Wayne, on Wayne Ave, in Waynesboro. He's a good cook too. Multi course breakfast was a delight to palate and eye, (even the edible flowers). No off street parking. Old fashion tub was a little high to step into. A nice stop as you enter or exit Skyline Drive or the Blue Ridge parkway. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.

We stayed for one night while visiting Charlottesville. It was a nice room, friendly and helpful service, and a convenient location.

Beautiful front yard on busy road. Inn keepers were friendly and helpful. Too much clutter with "collectibles" for my taste. The breakfast was amazing and exceeded all previous bed and breakfasts attended. Overall good experience.

Our son and his fiance had chosen Belle Hearth as the hosting location for their intimate wedding gathering in the Waynesboro area. We were graciously welcomed by Linda and Wayne, helpfully introduced to the amenities of their B&B, and soon learned of the interesting history of this location. We found the historic home to be a wonderful place for the two families to assemble and spend time together. While we did not use the pool, we enjoyed the poolside area for an evening outdoor meal (we brought the fixings) and conversation following the wedding. Each of the rooms had a distinct character, and we enjoyed seeing them all. We had a delightful breakfast the next morning, as we enjoyed their specialties. The ample front and side porch provided us a relaxing place to visit. Linda and Wayne were very gracious and accomodating hosts.
4.4 on June 18, 2011
The night we spent at the Belle Hearth B&B was superb. The rooms were comfortable, and beautifully decorated and Wayne and Linda were excellent hosts. They provided great suggestions for dinner and the breakfast was superb! I would have loved to have more time to explore the area! Cheryl, Cape Town, South Africa

The stories about the original owners helped to make this a special stay.

I would recomend this B&B to everyone. Linda and Wayne were great, the breakfast was fantastic. We will stay there again
5 on June 01, 2011
Linda was a fabulous host! We happened to be the only guests during our stay, but got the feeling Linda makes all of her guests feel special. She even up-graded our room to the Magnolia Suite at no extra cost. The clean room was well appointed with a great bed, soft sheets and linens. The bubble bath in the "old fashion tub" was so relaxing and peaceful after a long day and we loved that the room had a separate shower. Her gourmet breakfast of omlette/apples was so delicious. I would never thought of it, blending the two together. I highly recommend the Belle Hearth who wants a fine B&B experience. Diane & Bill
5 on June 01, 2011
Pleasant, comfortable, private and so clean! So much to gaze at while in the inn and the area the inn is located is convenient and so nice. The town of Waynesboro is very small town nice. Nice places to eat, shop and easy to find your way around.

For one of the most pleasurable and memorable experiences of your vacation--you must visit the Belle Hearth in Waynesboro, VA For a stress relief par excellence, ambiance and surroundings where every nook and cranny is an adventure to explore. You enter at the gardens that your want to stroll in immediately. The porch invites you to the door and wow! the beauty, elegance inside is a vision of pure delight as you come into the welcoming rooms. You will want to explore every nook and cranny, and corner. Ahh!! comfort, wiggle your toes comfort, close your eyes and breath peace. And you will meet interesting companions for great conversations. We just could not say enough good about this delightful place. Last but not least--the breakfast, words cannot describe how delicious, every morsel savoring bite--you want to linger longer!! It's worth going out of your way to visit this wonderful B&B. Suella and John Pancoast, Dover, Delaware

My Husband and I stayed this last weekend for the first time at Belle Hearth. The owners, Linda and Wayne were amazing hosts. From the fresh cut flowers in our room, to the chocolates, to the mouth watering dishes served at breakfast, we just loved everything about Belle Hearth. The room was comfortable and very quiet at night. You cant beat the location either. We were able to visit local wineries, take in a Shakespearean play in Staunton, and attend the graduation ceremonies at University of Virginia. All of these destinations were just minutes away. We are looking forward to staying again this summer to do some fishing and then again in the Fall to take in all the beautiful Fall colors of Shenandoah Valley. We highly recommend this B&B.
4.8 on May 18, 2011
While all of the sites we vidited, Skyline Drive, caverns, quaint towns and several wineries were wonderful, the stay at Belle Hearth put the icing on the overall cake. We would recommend it it anyone.

My family and I have never been treated as hospitably as we were at the Belle Hearth. Decor, food, friendliness, and cleanliness are off the chart. Treat yourself and someone you love with a stay at the Belle Hearth!

3 of us visiting from the UK stayed overnight 17 to 28 April
3.4 on May 11, 2011
Everything was fine. Beds were comfortable, breakfast sufficient and creative enough to make it much more than mundane. The place is a bit crowded, with bric-a-brac on every surface and sometimes intense wallpaper, but we had a fine stay at a fair price.
2.8 on May 05, 2011
Suggest breakfast be served earlier as it was 10:30 before we finished and we had planned on morning sightseeing before getting back on the road. Another guest agreed there wasn't enough space in the bedrooms to place our suitcases, clothing and toiletries.
5 on April 12, 2011
The hosts were very kind and we had a pleasant stay. The room was very clean and had a nice fireplace. The breakfast was three courses and the french toast melted in my mouth.

My wife and I were returning from our honeymoon in Williamsburg and had just finished driving the Skyline Drive from the north entrance to the southern end. When we arrived at Belle Hearth we were greeted by Linda at the front door, who was very friendly and immediately made us feel at home. We had reserved the 3-room Magnolia Suite which could not have been more perfect. The house itself was a step back in time to the victorian age of the early 20th century, but with all the modern conveniences. After our night's stay, we had a wonderful breakfast in the formal dining room, and were abe to visit with Linda and Wayne. The history of the house is amazing and the neighborhood very charming with friendly people passing by on the front walk. We had found the perfect place to spend the last night of our honeymoon and look forward to returning in the future.

Our visit was delightful. The host were so gracious, telling us all about the beautiful period house. It was furnished so nice. Everything was so clean. We enjoyed a nice dinner at a restaurant our host suggested at our request. Our room was very nice. The breakfast was wonderful, so delicious and served so nicely. We stay a a B&B every year on our wedding anniversary, and we certainly would recommend Belle Hearth. Our age group is 55+. Our hats off to our host Linda and Wayne for a wonderful visit.

This was this first time I stayed in a bed and breakfast. It was an incredibly enjoyable experience. The home is just that a home. Everything was very comfortable and pleasant. The owners made me a bag breakfast to take to my class. The gas fire places in the rooms made for a comfortable night of relaxing and winding down for the day while watching TV. I highly recommend a stay.

Linda and Wayne were great in helping my wife and I celebrate our 25th anniversary near valentine's day, going so far as to prepare a surprise cake for my wife and a beautifully decorated tray with cake, chocolates and flutes for my toast to my wife. The house was well-decorated with many antiques. Our breakast was custom-made for us and another couple.
5 on February 16, 2011
Linda and Wayne are great hosts. The house was spotless, we couldn't find one grain of dust. The breakfast was delicious. They are great conversationalists and really make you feel at home. The house is also beautiful. Plus, they know of so many great things to do in the area so all you have to do is talk to them a little to figure out how to spend your days. The house is really close to Monticello, University of Virginia, several vineyards that have wine tasting, and the town of Charlottesville, which is a fun and beautiful place. We would recommend anybody stay at Belle Hearth.
5 on February 14, 2011
Gorgeous 1909 home with over-the-top Victorian furnishings and decor. Beautifully presented and very tasty breakfast per our request. Rose bedroom perfect for a couple; however, poor lighting for applying make-up and TV monitor too low to see while in bed. Great coffee/convenience center upstairs near room. Inn-keepers VERY helpful with dinner suggestions.

My wife and I received a three night stay at Belle Hearth as a Christmas present from our children. The Inn is located in downtown Waynesboro and very easy to find. Beautiful old house with lots of history. House was decorated for Christmas and it was beautiful. The owners Wayne and Linda were very gracious and very friendly. Our room was very large with a private bath and gas log fireplace. King size bed that was very comfy. Breakfast was simple and delicious. If you enjoy history this is the perfect place to stay. Thomas Jeffersons home is a short drive with many Vinyards on the way. All in all we had a great time. Really hated to leave.

For my wife and I, this was our first trip to a bed and breakfast. We didn't know what to expect, but this trip was everything that we could have hoped for. Wayne, the innkeeper, was a gracious host and a fantastic cook. With his wife away visiting family, he treated us to an absolutely wonderful breakfast each morning. If you are looking for a quiet, cozy place to stay near Charlottesville, this is the place to stay!

My husband and I have stayed at Belle Hearth quite a few times, and we've always had a wonderful time! The innkeepers are among the best we've ever met, and being that we've stayed in LOTS of b&bs, that's saying a lot! We will continue to visit them every chance we get!

While my friend and I were on vacation, we decided to end it at a Bed and Breakfast. I found this gem on the internet and we loved it. The day we got there, we were greeted by a very nice couple, who gave us a tour after chatting with us about our interests. We felt like family at this hidden, wonderful B&B. Since it was close to dinnertime, they suggested several places to eat in the area. After we decided, they gave us printed directions and told us to enjoy our meal (they loved to go there also). I was talking with Linda and Wayne while they were making breakfast, informing them of my friend's request for his morning meal. They were very accommodating to his change. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously. We are already planning to stay there again on our next trip to the area.
5 on November 04, 2010
Absolutely awesome B&B!! Historic, romantic, and the breakfast was "to die for!" not to mention the hospitality. Definitely will go back!
4.8 on October 22, 2010
We enjoyed the well-furnished room and all the amenities. Breakfast was great. Linda and Wayne were most helpful in planning our short stay in Waynesboro and our route south. If we're ever in the area again, we'll surely stay at Belle Hearth.

This was a special treat for me since Belle Hearth is my paternal grandfather and grandmother's house. To be able to stay and sleep there with two of my 3 daughters created special memories in our lives.
5 on October 17, 2010
Along with being historic and beautiful, the innkeepers were wonderfully accommodating to all my odd allergies and my husband's diabetes. The breakfast of zucchini bread and orange french toast was amazing, moreso because they used splenda.
4.2 on October 14, 2010
Stayed here for 3 nights in September 2010 as base for hiking in Shenadoah National Park. Very convenient for access to Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Parkway. Given a warm welcome by Wayne and a tour of the interesting house with all its history. Very comfortable accommodation and a really good breakfast which set us up for the day's walking.
5 on October 12, 2010
The room was outstanding - especially clean and inviting - it was as if staying at grandmom's for a long weekend - it was the perfect setting for the beginning of our 41st anniversary weekend. The host and hostess couldn't have been nicer or more informed of the history of the house which was intriguing! The breakfast was outstanding and a southern delight! The other couples were as pleased and impressed as we were and breakfast was a chatfest as we enjoyed comraderie and shared stories of home and family. The inn keepers were especially friendly. The Inn itself is immaculate and well kept and well decorated for the season - I imagine it is spectcular at Christmas time! You will certainly get more than your monies worth at Bell Hearth!
4.6 on September 28, 2010
We were able to take advantage of a special rate. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was spotless. The innkeepers had discounts for many of the area activities and this saved us even more. The breakfasts' were delicious and our coffee server was kept full. Linda & Wayne even poured when they were not busy with other duties.
5 on September 24, 2010
My wife and I stayed at Belle Hearth for our anniversary in September. The hosts were wonderful and the house is gorgeous. Linda has done a great job of decorating and every knick-knack has its place and looks like it belongs. The breakfast was excellent, home-cooked, inventive (sausage and cranberry quiche, grapes with orange-zest sauce, etc.) and very filling. They were gracious of our arriving much later than we'd anticipated due to driving the length of Skyline Drive and let us have a lazy checkout in the morning. In short, we enjoyed our visit very much and will certainly be going back.
5 on September 06, 2010
My husband and I spent our 5th wedding anniversary at this lovely quaint Victorian B&B. The home was beautifully decorated. We stayed in the Orchid room, which was comfortable and cozy. The french toast, with orange sauce was delicious!! Linda and Wayne were wonderful hosts. Thanks so much for a wonderful experience for our special day.
4.8 on August 25, 2010
We had a wonderful stay at the Belle Hearth. The house is fascinating with all the antiques collected by Linda and Wayne. Breakfasts were exceptional! Waynesboro is not the most interesting town, but Inn is centrally located for visiting the southern Shenandoah Valley.
4.8 on August 22, 2010
My husband and I recently stayed at the Belle Hearth for 3 nights/4 days. Our gracious hosts, Linda and Wayne Mielczasz, made our stay a most memorable one. The history they shared regarding their home and the town was very entertaining, informative and enjoyable. They offered many suggestions regarding things to do, places to go and restaurants for dining. Their home is both charming and elegant with many treasures they have collected both locally and abroad. Our room was beautiful and very comfortable. The pool was an additional delight. Breakfasts were delicious and plentiful and we enjoyed the company of Linda and Wayne's other guests whether dining in the elegant, formal dining room or at a table on the wraparound porch. We have recommended Belle Hearth to several of our friends and we will definitely be returning!
5 on August 19, 2010
Large comfortable rooms with all the amenities. The wonderful hosts provided a delicious gluten-free breakfast. It was a perfect getaway.

Needed a place to stay so I could antique shop/visit friend in the area. Found so much more, and made friends. Loved everything about the Belle Hearth. Stayed in the Rose room but all rooms are gorgeous. Linda and Wayne are great hosts. Will go there again and recommend to anyone. Great, relaxing pool, excellent breakfasts (no need for more food after theses meals), great location!
4.8 on July 27, 2010
This was our first time ever staying in the B&B and we had such good time and Linda and Wayne was very friendly and accomodating with our hectic schedule. we were there for our daughter in-law's college graduation. Food was excellent! we would love to go back and just enjoy leisure time some time! Will & Kay

5 on July 10, 2010
We found this lovely century old home when looking for a place to rest while visiting our daughter and her new baby in Charlottesville. Decorated true to it's era it seemed as if the original owners had never left! The rooms are absolutely beautiful and comfortable. Leading to a refreshing pool on the ground level was a set of winding exterior steps with items left along the way – reminiscent of summer vacations and 'going home' to relatives. Wayne and Linda were as welcoming as if we were related. On our second visit we brought along two grandchildren who also enjoyed the style and décor of generations apart. A delicious breakfast is served with elegant grace, and as my 10 year old granddaughter put it, “That lady (Linda) was so nice... she gave me my very own little teapot!” Even after our new little addition to our family gets to go home from the hospital, we hope to visit Belle Hearth again and again.
4.8 on June 29, 2010
Stayed in the Magnolia Suite and was able to have a separate room for our daughter who was with us for college visits. Other B&Bs we checked would not allow her to stay in the room with us without renting an entire other room. Linda provided us with information and suggestions for all our planned activities!
5 on June 18, 2010
Beautiful B&B! Rooms and breakfast were great but what sets this B&B apart are their many helpful suggestions, from hiking trails to restaurants for dinner to tourist attractions and of course all those wineries! Andrew Macdonald
5 on May 25, 2010
Wonderful B&B. Gracious hosts and wonderfully planned breakfasts!
5 on April 20, 2010
First time at any B&B. Was worried about feeling as if we were intruding on other people's privacy. But.... why didn't I do this sooner? It will be the place that I compare future trips with. Everything was perfect and lovely, from the house and room to the owners.
5 on April 18, 2010
This house is so amazing, and so beautifully decorated, it is a true delight! Our room was immaculately clean and very, very comfortable. The mattress was more comfortable than ours at home! The owners, Linda and Wayne, are very gracious, friendly, and also delicious cooks. Our only regret was that we were not able to stay longer. Will definitely come back.

My wife and I stayed here for one night as a stop-over in connection with a drive along the Skyline Drive. The Magnolia room was spacious, cozy and nice. Breakfast was great. Wayne, upon our arrival, made us feel very welcome and we were given details about the old but charming house, which has all that you can expect, incl. TV and WiFi.
4.6 on April 08, 2010

We had a remarkable time at Belle Hearth. This was our first time staying at a B&B and it was well worth it. They made us feel right at home. We will return soon.
5 on March 22, 2010
Everything about Belle Hearth is very welcoming, from the innkeepers themselves to their delicious breakfasts to the personality-plus rooms with cozy fireplaces. I hated to leave! We totally enjoyed everything about our stay. We plan on returning as soon as our hectic schedules allow.
5 on March 22, 2010
My family and I gathered at the Belle Hearth B&B for my father-in-law's 60th Birthday. We were all driving from different directions, so we decided on this location as a mutual meeting spot. The B&B was beautiful - we were not disappointed! The home is full of gorgeous antiques and the bedrooms were large, cozy and clean. Breakfast in the AM was delicious & the innkeepers were both very friendly. Waynesboro is a quaint area & is w/in driving distance to several great vineyards. If you're looking for a nice getaway, definitely check this place out.
3.4 on March 06, 2010
Had a wonderful stay at this B&B. Room was cozy, and the fireplace was a plus. Breakfast was just right and we enjoyed meeting the other guests. Wish breakfast was a little earlier since it delayed our departure a bit, but otherwise, everything was great. Innkeepers were very helpful and courteous. Would definitely consider staying here again.
4.4 on March 05, 2010
This B&B met all our expectations. We will consider staying there again.
5 on March 02, 2010
Our recent overnight stay at the Belle Hearth was delightful. The owner's pride in maintaining a tastfully decorated and inviting home was evident with much of the furniture and decor acquired from extended visits to England. The gas fireplaces with different hearths in every room glowed with the warmth and hospitality conveyed as well by our gracious hosts. The king bed in the Orchid room was sooo comfortable that I even peeked under the tightly drawn sheets to try to see the mattress brand. Breakfast was a delicious "three course" event! The lilac-colored home comes with an interesting 100 year history that the owners are delighted to tell. It is nestled among turn of the 20th Century homes that range from Victorian to Craftsman and is a stone's throw from historic downtown Waynesboro and Fishburne Military Academy. The owners have discount tickets to Wintergreen skiing and are exploring getting discounts for the snow tubing which we were there for. We will definately return in warmer climes to enjoy a walking tour of the tree-lined streets and inground pool!
4.6 on March 02, 2010
Wondeful friendly hosts, accomodating of our atypical diets, home full of antiques, chocolate, very tidy and well maintained, big tub and working gas fireplace. Books, movies, maps nad games. A great escape.
5 on February 16, 2010
visited once again but this time during Valentines- wonderful getaway yet again! It was nice to see Wayne and Linda and the house was immaculate. Although there was plenty of snow, it did not hamper our time there- in fact, it added to the excitement for we were able to use the fireplaces! (normally too warm to use). If you haven't been to the Belle Hearth, you are missing out on Waynesboro best kept secret! We will be back!
5 on January 29, 2010
I stayed here during a buisness trip and had an outstanding experience. The value was excellent compared to the hotel chains with a great breakfast included. The host were very nice and informative. They even had wireless internet. Great value, excellent stay. Thank You!!!!
4.6 on January 27, 2010
A delicious breakfast elegantly served. Absolutely lovely Victorian decor, with little surprises in every nook and cranny. A beautifully-made king-sized bed that slept like a dream. We had a wonderful time and have been converted to B&B devotees.
5 on January 20, 2010
Nice B&B - We got lost getting there due to traffic redirecting and our host helped us make it back on the correct route. Delicious hearty breakfast. Lovely rooms full of antiques. I would recommend this place.
5 on January 04, 2010
This B&B was warm, cozy and inviting on a very cold January weekend. We especially enjoyed the hospitality from the innkeepers, the delicious breakfasts, and the fireplace in our room. We felt welcome and quite at home. We would love to come back when it is warmer to enjoy the lovely porch and pool.

We arrived in the rain and were delighted with the warm welcome and the gas fireplace in our cozy and beautiful room! The dinner at Chickpeas on Main Street was excellent. Try the stuffed grape leaves and then one of the entrees! We had a rest full nights sleep and a gourmet breakfast. We hope to visit again. Innkeeper Wayne was on hand to help us with every need. We highly recommend Belle Hearth B&B. Rebekah and Mark

My husband and I recently stayed for two nights at Belle Hearth. It was wonderful. Wayne & Linda are a delightful couple and could not have been more hospitable.

This was our first experience in a Bed and Breakfast and it was beyond wonderful! Linda and Wayne provided us with historical information about the house, local restaurant and event recommendations, and a warm and friendly environment. From the claw foot bathtub to the down comforter on the queen sized bed and the amazing breakfast to the insightful conversations, we wished we had booked more nights and hope to return soon.
5 on November 09, 2009
Best B&B we had stayed in. Wayne & Linda made us feel at home. Highly recommend.
5 on November 09, 2009
The innkeeper pulled his car out of his carport into the rain so that I could keep my antique car clean & dry. My car won first place in its class. Thanks!
5 on November 05, 2009
Belle Hearth is really a treasure! The entire house is decorated beautifully with interesting details. The breakfast was outstanding - best fritatta and cream cheese zucchini bread you could ever imagine! Wayne and Linda seem to think of every detail - from snacks down the hall to the comfiest and most lovely smelling bed and bath linens. Although we did not get to meet Linda, we can only imagine she is as welcoming and charming as Wayne. Thank you both so much! We will definitely recommend you to others.
5 on November 04, 2009
My wife and i stayed at the Belle Hearth for 3 nights. Linda and Wayne, the innkeepers were gracious and extremely helpful in their suggestions to sights and restaurants. The breakfasts were highly creative and wonderful. The rooms were lovely and very clean. I highly recommend the Belle Hearth B&B for those visiting the Shenandoah Valley.
5 on November 03, 2009
Belle Hearth is a charming B&B with gracious and welcoming hosts. The breakfast was divine! The overall ethos was perfect -- elegant, charming, restful!
4.4 on November 02, 2009
I found this B&B on the Virginia Tourism Website. We had never been to Waynesboro, but we know now that we have a reason to return. The Orchid Room was so comfortable, didn't want to get out of bed, but the smell of breakfast invited us to come and join the other guests.
5 on November 02, 2009
My husband and I waited until the last minute to book a weekend anniversary trip to Charlottesville. Because there was a big concert at UVA, EVERYTHING in or near town was booked. We got the last room at Belle Hearth in Waynesboro, VA, about a half and hour away. For once, our procrastination paid off! Belle Hearth is absolutely charming. We stayed in the Magnolia Suite, which has room for 4 people. It was a great value at $150 a night (the most expensive in the inn). Particularly nice was the deep, claw-footed tub for soaking. The inn-keeper, Wayne, is friendly, helpful with suggestions for hikes and wineries, and obviously takes great pride in the inn, which has an interesting history. The breakfasts each day were unique and flavorful - we never left hungry. And we appreciated that Wayne used local apples he and his wife had picked nearby in our meals. The inn is located nearby the entrances to both Shenandoah and Blue Ridge Mountain national parks, lots of wineries, and it is close enough to Charlottesville by car that we were easily able to go in for dinner. We enthusiastically recommend Belle Hearth as a reasonably-priced and charming B&B in the Charlottesville area - we'll definitely be going back!
5 on October 30, 2009
I had never stayed at a B&B bofore and wasn't sure what to expect. Wayne and Linda were very gracious and the rooms and amenities exceeded my expectations. The house is beautiful inside and out and I felt very much at home. Breakfast was fantastic, conversation pleasant and diverting, and the stay was well worth the price. I hope to be able to visit again....and on my next trip I'm going B&B.
5 on October 26, 2009
Our hosts were so welcoming, we felt like family staying there. The house was so warm and the decor so inviting. The breakfast was great and so was the location. One of the best B&B's we've stayed in.

We enjoyed our stay, we were made to feel comfortable, the house is decorated very nice, a lot of knick-knacks, the bedrooms were very nice and comfortable. Breakfast was done really good. They were informative about where to go for sightseeing.

Wayne and Linda were incredibly welcoming, offered a delicious breakfast along with fabulous advice for local restaurants / recreation. Not to be under-rated, is the great built-in pool in the backyard. This was our first stay in a B&B and we are sure to do this more and more!

The inn is a lovely place to stay. the rooms are decorated beautifully with an attention to detail. the innkeepers are gracious, friendly, and helpful. Breakfast was served on beautiful china in a lovely dining room. We stayed in The Rose Room. My only suggestion would be to add room-darkening shades. The room had too much light from the street for sleeping.

We enjoyed our stay very much- great hosts, good food, and very comfortable accommodations. Definitely recommend this B&B!

A beautiful B&B! We were met so warmly by our host & given a tour of the home along with its interesting history. Lovely furnishings -- our Lilac Room was complete with antique family pictures, hats, etc. Makes you feel the original owner just stepped out. Breakfast included watermelon "bowls" of fruit, apple muffins & french toast on English China. Also, no minimum night stay!

My husband and I have been married for a couple of years and have one 10-month-old son. We wanted to celebrate the end of a difficult summer job, and since we enjoyed staying at a bed and breakfast for our one-year wedding anniversary, we decided to get a baby-sitter and do it again. Even when you can only get away for one night, it is as affordable as a nice hotel, and we think it's just a little more cozy and fun to do from time to time.
5 on July 20, 2009
My husband and I were on an extended trip when he experienced a dental emergency shortly before we arrived. Linda (owner and retired dental assistant) took a look at the problem and immediately called her personal dentist who was able to get us in early the following morning. We are so grateful for Linda's help as this could have ruined our trip. The home was beautifully decorated, very comfortable and cozy. The food was delicious and we especially enjoyed spending the evening sitting on the very inviting front porch. I would not hesitate to recommend this b&b to anyone. We hope to return if we are ever up that way again. The hosts could not have been nicer nor could they have made us feel more at home.

Just had a great weekend at Belle Hearth with Wayne and Linda. Found their knowledge of the Valley to be extensive. They wanted to make sure all your needs were met comfortably and how they could help you do what you wanted. Their home is beautiful, and comfortable. Breakfasts were great. My wife and I stayed in the Iris Room and loved it, even if it was a little cold.

Our stay and the B & B was everything I anticipated and more! Wayne is a wonderful cook and presented everything with such a flare for detail right down to the flowers that garnished the plates. The room was comfortable and I can't wait to go back and stay a day or 2 longer. While we were there we took a drive down to Natural Bridge which is awesome as well. Thank you Wayne and Linda

We enjoyed every minute from the time we got there until the time we left. Linda and Wayne are very friendly accomodating people. We would recomend this B & B to everyone.

Charlottesville was booked for U. VA graduation, so we looked for lodging nearby. This was the perfect solution. Close enough to attend with ease, far enough to be a quiet retreat afterward. Hosts were very accommodating. Food delicious. Limited surface in bathroom, however, to place bags and other items.
4.2 on May 25, 2009
Wayne makes a great breakfast. You will not be disappointed. The smell of baking bread greets you as you come down the stairs from your room. The inn is close to restaurants too..A quite restful place to stay.

The owners, Wayne and Linda, really go all out to make the guests welcome. The breakfasts are fantastic. They are very accomodating to individuals with food allergies or other dietary restrictions. Belle Hearth B&B is centrally located to the Blue Ridge Mountains, many wineries, and other cultural and historic places. All of the hotels in Charlottesville were gouging at 3-4 times the going rate for the UVA graduation weekend. Wayne and Linda did not change the rates for that weekend. Charlottesville was a relatively quick 21 mile drive from Waynesboro. My wife and I would definetely come back.

Exquisite meals as fine as the finest of restaurants! Linda and Wayne were exceptionally helpful as we planned out visit to the valley of Virginia. The house is immaculate; lots of space for relaxing and reading; easily accessible. Waynesboro itself is a delightful little town! We’re looking for an opportunity to return.

We just stayed at Belle Hearth in Waynesboro, VA for two nights in early April. While we missed the Winter Get Away discount, we were still able to get a good deal with a discount of $10 off per night. The B&B is in a good location that was easy to find and is within walking distance of a couple of restaurants. The rooms were very clean and well maintained and the breakfasts were great! Linda & Wayne, the innkeepers, were extremely nice and discreet. They could be found easily if we had questions, but generally in the evenings left us to our own devices which was nice. If you are looking for a place to stay in the Central VA area, close to skiing, wineries, breweries, and the historic areas of Charlottesville and Staunton, this is a great deal and is close to many sights. We would visit again and would recommend to our friends.

It was nice to experience the history of the home and imagine as it was with the original owner. The owner also provided great dinner suggestions for our Valentine’s evening. Even at full capacity the house was quiet, we barely new anyone else was residing upstairs. We enjoyed the company of other guest in the morning during a delicious breakfast. The BB is also a short distance from Wintergreen resort, which we took advantage of for a day of skiing. Given the opportunity, we would return to the Belle Hearth.

Wayne and Linda are such welcoming and friendly innkeepers. They're both thoughtful- a gift when they found out my visit was because of my birthday-and so accommodating- making a 2nd trip to my room to re-light the fireplace at 10 pm after I accidentally extinguished the pilot light. Wonderful hosts, charming B&B and scenic area!

We were very pleased with our first visit to Belle Hearth. We received excellent and attentive service, a delicious breakfast, and outstanding accommodations.

The only negative aspect of our stay at Belle Hearth was that we were there for only a day. The owners are welcoming and warm. The residence is beautifully decorated with each room drawing you to stay and explore all that adorns the walls and shelves. Breakfast was three courses of delicious fruit, scones, and french toast with an orange sauce. If for no other reason visit for the scones!

Great location in a historic home with lots of personality. hosts were very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed our visit and would recommend Belle Hearth to others!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Belle Hearth with Wayne and Linda again this holiday season. Again, super clean, super cute and smelled of cookies the entire stay. The room was great, warm and we had a gas fireplace and breakfast was very good every morning. Its very quaint and a very good value for your stay. If we visit again next holiday, we would like to take the Iris Room again! Wayne and Linda are both very helpful and fun to talk with at breakfast. Again, super clean, very 'home for the holidays' for us and very good value. Highly Recommend. :)

My husband and I both have allergies and found this B&B to be spotless! We had no problems even with the cat, Mrs. Mosby, on the premises. There are many antiques to look at, each with a story behind it. Wayne and Linda are special people who know how to make their guests feel welcome. Breakfast was delightful. Linda was accomodating in reviewing the menu with us since my husband has food intolerances. Over all a wonderful place to stay!

I've stayed multiple times at Belle Hearth while visiting my parents in Waynesboro (5-6 times?). Wayne and Linda are always welcoming and warm, the breakfast is delicious, and most important to me -the place is spotless! Also, Belle Hearth is in a safe area, so I never worry about coming in late at night or parking in the ample street parking right in front of the B&B. Having a fireplace in the room is also a very homey touch!

We stayed at Belle Hearth recently for only one night in November, but it certainly was enjoyable. Hosts were very accommodating & helpful with recommendations; the inn (circa 1900?) was very clean & well-kept; and the all-important breakfast was excellent. Most impressive, to us at least, were the antique furnishings, fireplaces, woodwork, & "knicknacks" on display throughout the inn. A mild negative was the lack of private parking (had to park in the street).

hosts go above and beyond to make guests welcome and comfortable. great breakfasts, easy access to I-64

With the year that my wife and I have and are having, we needed to get away for a weekend. We have stayed here several times in the past and always look forward to returning. Wayne and Linda do a great job make you feel right at home and we love them. Will be back many more times!

We decided to stay overnight somewhere near Charlottesville VA and the Blue Ridge Parkway on our way back from Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains. Belle Hearth B&B was perfect after a long day's ride. The rooms are delightful and cozy. Linda and Wayne are friendly and perfect hosts. They made us feel comfort sharing their home with us and gave us great suggestions for dinner locations and directions to nearby tourist attractions. We will recommend their B&B to our friends and hope to return someday.

The rooms were great, and well furnished. The innkeeper was extremely friendly and helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The way we were greeted was very nice. Wayne cooked us breakfast both days, and it was very, very good. There was so much of it. We weren't sure how to it would be to interact with total strangers during breakfast, but it was very nice and felt natural. The location is great, easy to get to, and I recommend you spend some time in nearby Staunton. We recommend this B&B, the reviews we read are spot on.

Wayne and Linda are exceptional hosts and know how to make you feel a part of the family, giving true meaning to my home is your home. The home itself is lovely and well maintained, leaving us not for wanting anything, other than to be able to stay longer if our schedule would have allowed. The drive there was easy to get to and not a long and drawn out ordeal. The recommended venue for out requested cuisine (Mexican) was beyond our expectations. I had the impression that whatever we requested, LInda and Wayne could provide an excellent suggestion. Thank you Linda and Wayne for a wonderful get away. Our dinning desire was met with an excellent recommendation

My husband and I had never been to a bed and breakfast, this was our first. We were very pleased with the beautiful home, the area and Linda and Wayne were very helpful answering our questions about the area and the sights to see. The breakfast in the moring was great, very tasty and something you would not make for yourself at home. The whole experience was something we would recommend to anyone wanting to just get away for a few days.
5 on January 10, 2008
We just stayed for two nights in late December, and could not have been more pleased. The Belle Hearth is a charming old house, well preserved with a very cozy atmosphere. All the rooms are quite unique. Wayne and Linda, the owners, are very friendly and quick to help you with any activities in the area. They also whip up a mean breakfast each morning. All in all, reasonably priced, in a great location, and very comfortable!

My husband and I spent several nights at Belle Hearth, and could not have been more pleased with the entire experience. We are retiries, and stay at B&B's on most of our travels and can honestly say that Belle Hearth is high on our list. You can't go wrong here. Nannette, Charleston S.C.
