A relaxing get away.

My wife and I sometimes get out of town for a weekend, and usually stay at a B&B when we do. I found Belle Hearth to be very clean, beautifully appointed, and comfortable. Linda and Wayne are very friendly, and gracious hosts. The sweets in our room, and throughout the house was a charming touch. If you are looking for a restful stay away from home with a friendly host and hostess, Belle Hearth is a great place to check out!


Perfect place for Virginia Institute of Blacksmithing class

5 on May 07, 2017

We stayed 2 nights in April 2017 while attending a class at the Virginia Institute of Blacksmithing. This is a great location. We could walk to dinner in downtown Waynesboro. The Magnolia Suite was fabulous. The bed was very comfortable and the sleeping porch room was great for relaxing and reading. The breakfasts were delicious and served on beautiful china. The waffles were light, airy and super tasty. I enjoyed the elegant coffee pot and china cup; it all felt so very special. Another thing I enjoyed at this B&B was the MANY candy dishes in the room and throughout the house filled with a great variety of treats. We will stay there again when we return to Waynesboro.


Very Nice Stay

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.


Best B&B we have ever been in.

5 on March 12, 2017

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!


Veterans Day Stay

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


Getaway

Gem in Waynesboro

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.


Welcome resting place from motorcycle ride on Skyline Drive

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.
