My wife & I reserved a room at Afton Mtn B&B because it was one of only several B&Bs we could find between the end of the Skyline Drive and the beginning of the Blue Ridge Parkway, and at the time it was the only B&B with a room available. We became immediately comfortable with our somewhat uninformed choice after meeting our hostess, Orquida. The house, its grounds and location, will immediately take you back to a much simpler time and lifestyle.
My wife & I seem to have been very lucky with our choices of B&Bs during this particular "Oregon or Bust" road trip, and Afton Mountain is a case in point. We were somewhat sad that we were on a schedule to leave the next morning. Our next road trip will likely include stays of several days, and Afton Mountain will be a likely choice.
