We have just returned from our two night stay at Afton Mountain B&B in Afton, Virginia. It is one of the very nicest of some 36 B&B's that we have visited. Orquida and Dan, the owners and inkeepers, offer gracious hospitality in their inn, a Virginia country farm house built in 1884. Its simple elegance with attention to details offers a quiet respite from the busy world with five beautifully appointed and comfortable rooms and delicious breakfasts prepared using local foods. At 7:15, coffee is available in the hallway outside our rooms and it's great coffee, locally sourced. Our first morning we were served oatmeal pancakes with bacon preceded by a delicious fresh fruit cup. Our second morning was a Southwestern frittata also preceded by a fruit ambrosia and freshly made banana bread. Everything was delicious. The inkeepers are very conscious of the environment and they make every effort to conserve energy and other natural resources. There is much to see and do in the area, yet we found ourselves spending much of our time simply enjoying the inn itself. A beautiful front porch with comfortable rockers invites guests to relax with a good book. Excellent restaurants are nearby. If you are looking for a place to stay in the Charlottesville, Virginia area, you will not be disappointed. We will make this one another of our destination inns and can't wait to return. All five rooms are delightful and we plan to visit them all in our return visits. Very nice place.
We choose our B&B's through the Deneen Pottery website, "Find your next mug" page. This Afton Mountain find is one of the nicest yet.
