Sweet Afton| Country House in Heart of VA Wine Country

Romantic vacation home in Afton
2 bed, 1 bath country cottage in the heart of wine and beer country located in Afton "proper". This quaint cottage sits on 1.55 fenced-in acres (bring the pups!**) with incredible mountain views and a location that is hard to beat. Whether you are coming for the wine/beer hopping, a vineyard wedding (Veritas is a 3 min drive), or to get outdoors (Blueridge Tunnel Trail- 3 min, Shenandoah National Park - 15 min), Sweet Afton is perfect retreat! High speed, 1gig internet in the rural country.
Sweet Afton is a historic cottage, yet recently updated with modern amenities (central heating and air, updated kitchen appliances) and tasteful new furnishings provide a fresh, relaxing and bucolic atmosphere. The plot has well maintained gardens surrounding the house and walkways, a hammock, a fire pit with 6 chairs and two porches to enjoy a morning coffee or evening glass of wine with company.
Upon the entry to the cottage (enter from backside) there is a full kitchen with refrigerator, 6 burner gas stove and all of the cooking essentials you will need. Off of the kitchen is a spacious dining room (seats 6) with large bay windows providing beautiful mountain views towards the southwest. From the dining room, a central hallway leads through to the front of the house. Off the hallway, are both bedrooms (queen beds), the full bath and an inviting living room with a pull-out couch (king but also can be a double), a TV and a desk. All of the rooms feel very spacious due to the 10 ft ceilings and natural light from the large windows.
On the front of the house is a covered porch with six rocking chairs and a gas grill. Large bushes in front of the house provide privacy from the nearby road.
Truly a perfect retreat with everything you need and a great location.

4/5 Good

Just what we needed
Very nicely appointed old house close to hikes, wineries/breweries, and Charlottesville. Never seen so many healthy houseplants and high end kitchenware in a rental! The yard, with its view, hammock, and fire pit was a big hit with our toddler and dog. But beware: the management company requires another $75 for your dog even after you enter your no-refund reservation for bringing your dog with VRBO.

Sweet Afton is a hidden gem!
This place is a wonderful hidden gem located on a quiet and scenic mountain road. My family of 4 (and 2 pups) completely enjoyed our stay at Sweet Afton. The cottage is historic, quaint, and charming with a wonderful Mountain View and had all the modern amenities we needed. Check in was a breeze and the property was beautiful and welcoming. We all enjoyed the local sights and activities and loved relaxing on the porch, or by the cozy firepit. It was just what we needed to rest and recharge and take in a little of what Shenandoah has to offer. We can’t wait to go back.

Perfect house and location
We could not have asked for a better experience; this house is absolutely perfect. The interior is gorgeous, with all new/modern amenities and very comfortable beds and sofas. Well equipped kitchen. Internet was very fast. There is a huge fenced in yard that is perfect for pets. Our dog had a great time. There is a hammock, swinging chair, firepit, an chairs in the yard. It was just prefect for a vacation! Wish we could have stayed longer.
