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!

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!

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.

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!

As former UVA students, my wife and I got married in the Charlottesville area. We decided to make a trip back for our anniversary, and we could not have been happier with our selection of Afton Mountain Bed & Breakfast! The hosts were warm and gracious, and we loved being located right on Route 151 in the heart of Albemarle / Nelson County's wine county. All the amenities of a hotel, plus the charm of a bed and breakfast.

The time that my wife and I stayed at the Afton Mountain Bed and Breakfast was a well deserved break from our daily routine. The atmosphere was pleasant, the scenery magnificient and the actual Bed and Breakfast was amazing! From the owners (Mr. and Mrs. Ingraham) with their extremely helpful demeanor were only outdone by the prestine grounds and home that we stayed in during our stay. The breakfasts were exquisite and original, much more than what we expected. Their knowledge of the local restuarants and wineries proved invaluable day after day. We were able to plan our schedules and still have them fluid enough to relax and enjoy the moment. My wife and I felt welcome from the moment we entered the building and were sad when it was time to depart. I would highly recommend paying a visit at this Bed and Breakfast as much as possible.

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.
