Very comfortable home, warm and friendly hosts (Orquida and Dan). Old home, but in great condition. Nice outdoor pool. Quiet surroundings with nice yard. Close to BlueRidge Pkwy and Skyline Drive entrance. Several wineries and breweries nearby. Good breakfasts staggered so that everyone is not at breakfast at the same time. Allowed for easy communications between guests.

This was our 3rd stay with Orquida and Dan. They are the greatest couple and so nice. Our room was spotless (as always) and the atmosphere is like being at home. Breakfast is delicious and there has been something different each time we stayed. We'll definitely be back again soon. Thanks so much for making us welcome.

The innkeepers are very warm and friendly, and understanding of the bumps on the road of life that may cause delays, etc. The grounds and back porch are very relaxing, and the front porch takes you back to simpler times. Dan and Orquida were very obliging with our dietary needs and breakfast was very good. The room was lovely and very comfortable, and those home-made cookies were delicious!

My wife and I definitely enjoyed our stay at Afton. From the better-than-average B&B parking to the painless check-out, the time there was very enjoyable. The room was comfortable, the amenities were excellent, and the real effort on the breakfast was very much appreciated. We will visit again.

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.
