We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and it seemed that all of the other guests were enjoying themselves too. The owner/hosts are very welcoming, professional and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

A wonderful weekend

My wife and I stayed two nights in the Mornington Room. The accommodations were wonderful and the B&B was beautiful. Waking up to fresh coffee on the porch was a huge plus. I highly recommend this B&B.

Very Nice

Our Trip with Friends to Charlottesville

I enjoyed our stay this past weekend at Afton Mountain B&B. It was a beautiful home, much larger than it looks from the outside. We stayed in the room with a small shower and whirlpool bath, which was so relaxing for my husband before his bicycle race on Saturday morning. Dan and Orquida were excellent Innkeepers and the food they provided for breakfast was fresh and delicious.

At home, away from home

My wife and I stayed here for one night during a road trip to Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Mountains. Orquida and Dan were super nice and the room was very comfortable and clean. It is a very special house with a beautiful yard and rocking chairs on the balcony. They think on al the little details by offering complementary snacks, homemade cookies, drinks, coffee and tea. They also have snacks and toiletry products waiting inside the room for you. Homemade breakfast was also delicious. It has a good location for traveling in the area and can be a good base for daily trips and hikes. It is pretty close to the road but not too noisy. It is also close to some very good local breweries that offer good beers and food. We would definitely recommend Afton Mountain Bed&Breakfast and would definitely come back :)

Great Getaway!

This was my husband and I's first experience staying in a B&B, and we will definitely do it again after staying here! Orquida and Dan were so friendly and welcoming, and had all information available for local hot spots. Our trip was everything we hoped for in a weekend getaway thanks to Afton Bed and Breakfast!

Delightful Weekend

We vacation with friends and this was our first time trying a B&B. Afton Mountain B&B was exquisite! Orquida and Dan (owners) met us at the door. A lovely welcome to their beautiful home. Orquida gave us a tour and explain the details of every room. She prepared a quick early breakfast for our first day. The second morning we were treated to the most delicious breakfast of apricot stuffed french toast, sausage, juice and coffee. The whole house is beautifully restored to it's 1848 grandness. Our favorite activity was just visiting with our friends while rocking on the front porch. The extra details of fresh cookies and coffee daily. Books detailing each room. A binder of local restaurants to try. Every need was prepared for. They are a lovely couple and we all look forward to our next visit at Afton Mountain B&B.

Delightful experience!

This was my husband's and my first stay in a bed & breakfast, and we couldn't have made a better choice. Orquida and Dan are marvelous hosts. The rooms are spotlessly clean, the whole house is beautifully decorated, the porch is perfect for relaxing, and the breakfasts! Oh my goodness, the breakfasts! They were scrumptious! We will definitely be returning!

A relaxing stay

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.
