perfect

4.6 on June 08, 2016

We stayed 2 nights when we were in the area for a wedding at Wild Wolf Brewing Company. This is a beautiful part of the country and state! Orquida and Dan were perfect hosts. We stayed in the Shenandoah Room, which is on the first floor. The bed and space were comfortable and the bathroom and room were impeccably clean. They were kind enough to accommodate our gluten-free diet, as well as another guest's food allergies. The food and coffee were excellent; fantastic omelets and waffles, and cookies at bedtime. They take pride in their food and it shows. The location is perfect...very close to many wineries, cideries, breweries, and a couple distilleries...all within less than 20 miles. We had fun hitting some cideries before the wedding (Blue Toad, Bold Rock, Albemarle Ciderworks). We highly recommend staying here and look forward to staying with Orquida and Dan again!


Wonderful Stay

We had a lovely stay at the Afton Mountain Bed and Breakfast, with delicious breakfasts and accommodating hosts. When we weren't out and about exploring the beautiful surrounding areas with endless vineyards, breweries, and mountains to choose from, we enjoyed the pool in the backyard of the B&B. A great escape from city life.

Our 2-night stay at Afton Mountain B&B could not have been nicer! From the warm greeting as we arrived at this beautiful home, to the tasteful and spotlessly clean room, to the comfort of watching t-v and reading in the living room, to the wonderful breakfasts ~ have I said enough to recommend this B&B to you!!!


birthday getaway

5 on August 18, 2015

We had a wonderful overnight stay at Afton Mountain B and B! Our only regret was not staying longer! We stayed in the Goodwin Room and everything was decorated beautifully and we were provided with any and all information for our stay. Breakfast was wonderful and we enjoyed the fact that local ingredients were used. Thank you Orquida and Dan for a wonderful, relaxing stay in this lovely home!


Mid Week getaway

We enjoyed a wonderful mid week visit with another coupe at this gracious bed and breakfast. From the warm welcome at the front door to the delicious breakfast, everything was top notch. Beautiful bedding and any amenity you need is provided. We even enjoyed a relaxing swim in the pool :) The location is perfect for wine or craft beer fans since there are plenty of nearby places to stop. We loved eating at the Wild Wolf Brewing Company. Thanks for your hospitality Orquida, we will be back!

Beautifully decorated, very comfortable, but the breakfast......That would be worth coming for even if you had to sleep on the porch!


Lovely inn with tremendous service

5 on May 28, 2015

We stayed at the Afton Mountain Bed & Breakfast for one night recently. Reserving our room online was easy, and we got a confirmation call from Dan I., one of the owners, within 24 hours. We arrived at our scheduled time, and Dan and Orquida welcomed us to their inn, showed us around, and gave us options for our breakfast the next morning. The room was just as shown on their website and included a comfy bed that words can't do justice to describe. The guest room, as well as other public spaces in the inn, were well decorated, clean and comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was a lovely way to wake up - Orquida is a wonderful cook and hostess. Overall, a lovely inn with tremendous service.


A short intro to VA wine country

4.6 on May 14, 2015

My husband and I recently stayed a night at this wonderful B&B. We were greeted by Dan who was very pleasant and gave us a tour of their delightful B&B. What a great mix of the modern and antique! Internet radio and very comfortable beds mixed with the air of the past made for a unique and relaxing experience. The area they are located is a great part of the VA wine country. We greatly enjoyed our wine purchase while sitting in the front yard. Orquida was an attentive host during the delicious breakfast including locally procured sausage. The environmentally conscious will appreciate many of their touches as well. We can't wait to come back for a longer trip!

About the innkeepers

We moved to Central Virginia from near Washington, DC in the Summer of 2002. We immediately fell in love with this area, and are constantly delighted by the sights, the activities and the friendliness of the people. We hope you'll enjoy the area as much as we do.
