“Comfortable, welcoming retreat in beautiful Virginia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2013

My husband and I were taking a regional roadtrip in mid-May 2013 through N. Carolina, Virginia, S. Carolina and Georgia and stayed here for one night. The area is a beautiful backdrop to this comfortable, quiet, restful home and the very personable innkeepers. We made a trip to Charlottesville and Monticello while there, as well as sampled some local brew pub food and grog. The only regret we had was that we couldn't stay longer! We hope to be back again and to explore more of the wineries, breweries, Blue Ridge mountains and historical attractions the area has to offer. Definitely a great affordable place to stay.

Room Tip: All rooms seem equally restful and comfortable.

Our stay at Afton Mountain B & B was a welcome respite for us aided by the gracious and thoughtful innkeepers, Dan & Orquida. Our room, The Shenandoah, was clean and comfortable. The bedlinens and towels were first rate. The breakfasts were delicious and, when possible, prepared with locally produced ingredients. Hope you are served the local sausage! The B & B might be a Victorian structure but the rooms are equipped with satellite radio and the Internet is available for daytrip planning. The location is close to Charlottesville, with all its attractions. In addition, the rural location is also close to micro-breweries, wineries, restaurants, coffee shops, hiking, and scenic mountain drives. As a result the guests can be close to whatever interest they might have. When we return to the area we definitely will also return to Afton Mountain.

Room Tip: The Shenandoah is on the first floor while the balance of the rooms are on the second floor. The re...

I was Lucky enough to discover this diamond back in 2003, ten years ago, and loved it so much I honestly have never even bothered to try another B&B in the area. I have gone back more times to the Afton Mountain Bed and Breakfast than I can count and have enjoyed every luxurious restful weekend as much as the first.

Thank you, Dan and Orquida, for creating such a rare and wonderful oasis...looking forward to another visit very soon <3

p.s. TripAdvisor only gave me one option regarding "when I traveled" so I had to pick one month, which I did in order to submit the review, but I've been here many times. Also, I checked "excellent" for fitness center below-- there is no fitness center, but there is a gorgeous pool on the premises that suffices *beautifully*!

Room Tip: My favorite is the Mornington Room, but you really can't go wrong with any choice.

Very convenient location between Charlotte VA and Highway 81. Lovely old house with charming decor and polite innkeepers. Excellent breakfast of croissant French toast with organic strawberries and locally made sausage. We had originally made res. for 2 rms, but only needed one, and the innkeepers kindly cancelled one 2 days ahead of time with no penalty.

Room Tip: All rooms looked nice. View them online.

Lets start with, I usually like the Hampton Inn over ANY B&B... so for me to say this place is good is huge!

We stayed in the Mornington Room. My wife like it a lot. The queen bed was comfortable. (Very HIGH bed, they even leave a stool next to it for you). The room had a satelltive radio alarm clock which is a nice touch. Two windows in the room, one had a window A.C. unit in it, the other actually opened and had a screen, surprising for an old house with old windows. The bathroom was great and modern... small shower but also a lovely 2-person hot tub which was fun.

The hosts called ahead to make sure the restaurant we planned to go to was still open, since it was getting late, which was very nice of them.

Breakfast was home made and fresh.... coffee, tea, and juice were available... we were served a strawberry smoothie to start, then I had blueberry pancakes and sausage, my wife had a gluten free alternative which she enjoyed (we requested that ahead of time during reservation).

This place was about 5 minutes from the south entrance to 'Skyline Drive' which was convenient and part of why we selected it.

Highly recommend if you like privately owned B&B's in "the boonies"!

Room Tip: Mornington room has a nice hot-tub... its worth it!

My wife and I stayed there over the weekend. Everything was perfect. The owners (Orquida and Dan) were extremely friendly and provided and excellent breakfast. The home is in a great location with a lot of activities and places to visit within minutes. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in the "Looking Glass" room which was perfect for my wife and I.
