Truly Wonderful

5 on November 11, 2017

Gracious is the least we can about Linda and Wayne. From the moment we arrived we were warmly welcomed. Any questions we had about the area and what to dre answered with idea after idea. You could arrive here with no plan and leave exhausted with the number of ideas the hosts are ready to give you. Our room was super comfortable and well appointed. Every day when we came back there were chocolates on the pillows, as well as treats scattered through the home. We will be staying here again.

Very nice place to stay. Great breakfast. Good location. Close to good restaurants.

We stayed one night in the Rose room and enjoyed it very much. Also enjoyed meeting 8 other people around the breakfast table and had very nice conversations. Would definitely stay here again.

Enjoyed our stay

We were very comfortable at Belle Hearth. It has great character and warmth. We enjoyed our conversations with Linda and Wayne and hope their San Francisco trip with grandkids is super. I will forever smile when I think of Belle, the welcoming cat on her perch. Thank you, Kathy & Rick

Welcome surprise!

My husband and I spent 5 days traveling on Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway a few weeks ago. Not knowing the area, we chose to stay at Belle Hearth on a whim and were certainly surprised and pleased with the comfortable stay in the Orchid Room. Linda and Wayne are gracious hosts and do a fabulous job with breakfast. Love the china and silver touch in the warm dining room. Do not hesitate to consider this opportunity for an exceptional stay.

Delightful B & B

Innkeepers Linda and Wayne were friendly and extra helpful in making suggestions on sights to see in the area. The Victorian period house was beautifully decorated with antiques and the wrap around porch, front garden and pool (though we didn't use it) we're inviting. Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the breakfast quiche was delicious! We chose this B & B because of its proximity to I-64 , the Blue Ridge Parkway, and Skyline Drive and it was perfect. It was a short two block walk to Main Street with restaurants, shops and galleries. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back!

A wonderful unexpected treat!

After two weeks on the Appalachian Trail, I was ready to be spoiled a little, and Wayne and Linda did not disappoint. The rooms are lovely and rooted in the history of the early 20th century physicians residence and practice. From being picked up at the trail head, to their doing my laundry, to the lovely and tasty breakfasts, and to friendly Belle the cat, I was treated royally. Couldn't have been nicer!

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Belle Hearth B&B for a night while I was passing through Waynesboro during my AT thru-hike. While my perspective might be a little biased because I've been living out of a pack for 2 months, it has been easily the nicest place I've stayed in for a long time. Linda and Wayne were not only welcoming, but very accommodating to us not only as a couple but as a hiker as well. The cats Belle and Mosby (the true managers) were very inviting as well and let us give them lots of pets. The room was spotless and the bed was the comfiest I think I've ever slept in. The breakfast in the morning was on fine china and was delicious and the presentation was excellent. Even the porch was a great place to relax in the evening and enjoy a glass of wine. All in all, an amazing place to stay, I'd highly recommend staying here. If I'm ever in the Shenendoah valley again I will be staying with Linda, Wayne, Mosby, and Belle at the Belle Hearth B&B!

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!
