Private and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Very convenient to the Blue Ridge parkway, wineries, breweries and eclectic country stores. Every turn in the road(s) leading to this cottage has stunning views of the mountains. Located in a beautiful wooded setting with a cosy lounge area inside and the beds are comfortable. The back elevated deck was a perfect place to have early morning coffee. Would absolutely stay here again!

A wonderful respite on Afton Mountain

  • 5 of 5

Two weeks at Afton Cottage was the perfect escape from our daily grind. Surrounded by scenic estates, farms and rolling hills, this charming house is fully equipped and very comfortable. Dick Bell is a gracious host and very accessible. We enjoyed exploring the area and were pleasantly surprised at the excellent quality of the local wines. Many great options for dining as well. We are happy to recommend Afton Cottage.

Wonderful stay at Afton Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Afton cottage. It was very private and serene, with plenty of safe space outdoors for our two kids and dog to explore away from the road. We had everything we needed inside, including sophisticated touches like a historical newspaper, plus some fun games and books for the kids. Dick was very accommodating, and even left a treat for our dog. We are already planning another trip for the fall!

Secluded, comfortable, clean, well-equipped, we agreed that we'd live in a place like this if we could find one for sale!!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Best place to stay to retreat from the fast-paced world. Quiet, peaceful, beautiful and comfortable!! We loved the accommodations and the location. We plan on returning very soon. Owner, Dick Bell, lives a few homes away but gave us complete privacy. Just nice to know the owner was close by if there were any issues - which there weren’t.
