“A great taste of country hospitality in a beautiful old town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2010

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights on our way back from Charleston, SC to Boston. Hannah and Doug are warm and competent hosts. We stayed in the Vineyard room which was private and very cozy. The house is Doug's "ancestral" home. It affords a genuine taste of what rural North Carolina life was like 100 plus years ago. Hannah fixes large delicious breakfasts and provides munchies which she leaves in the kitchen for eating throughout the day. We took excursions to the Shelton Vineyard and to the town of Mt Airy - better known as Mayberry (Andy Griffith's hometown.) I recommend visits to both these places.

We had a little trouble finding it (the sat nav kept directing us into the river!!) but when we did, we were so delighted. This is a picture perfect clapboard house. And we had it all to ourselves. No-one else was staying and the owners live next door. The Rockford Inn has been beautifully restored and refurnished. We had a suite on a whole floor above the kitchen which was gorgeous. There are great touches like a bottle of wine, magazines, easter eggs when we stayed and delicious brownies on the kitchen counter. Breakfast in the beautiful dining room was lovely and we really enjoyed chatting with Hannah and Doug. They are so friendly and drew us maps for everywhere we needed to go. When we came back in the evening, they showed us round and we talked for ages again with them on the back porch. Rockford itself is a really American picturesque oldy-worldy place with a fantastic general store and white clapboard church. It's ideally placed to visit Winston Salem or wineyards and the scenery is wonderful - rolling fields and so green. We wished we were staying longer and we compared everywhere else we stayed on our American adventure to The Rockford Inn. Really superb!

We had a wonderful two night stay at the Rockford Inn, an historic home now serving as a B & B in an absolutely beautiful part of North Carolina. Hannah and Doug were excellent hosts and wonderful people. The accommodations were spotless, the grounds were beautifully maintained, and the breakfast was nothing short of outstanding. We stayed in the Vinyard Suite, which takes up the entire upper floor. It's very spacious and very nicely furnished. What a great night's sleep!!! My wife and I were attending a music festival in nearby Wilkesboro, but we discovered, with the help of Hannah and Doug, a wonderful winery or two and many more things to do in the area surrounding Rockford. We will absolutely return to this wonderful getaway spot.

This place is for peace, quiet and history buffs. Take sturdy walking shoes! We were able to log on to the internet, with our lap-top, but didn't have much time to use it. While there isn't a restaurant at Rockford, the breakfast is so good, and filling, that you will not need lunch!
Check out all the wineries in the area that also serve dinner. So much to do...so little time. This was our third time at Rockford Inn.

This was our second time staying with Hanna and Doug. The first time was just by chance as we were travelling south on 77 from Ontario to Florida and we found their listing in the North Carolina travel brochure. What a gem! Only a half hour off the freeway and we found a century and half old house, nestled between and a brook and a vineyard. Charming and relaxing accomodations and down to earth, helpful and honest hosts.

Driving back from Florida this year we made a point of stopping at the place that we often remembered from 4 years previously. The Yadkin Valley area has charmed us. Beautiful countryside and outstanding restaurants in the many vineyards. Again, our stay was excellent. Hannah and Doug mirror the charm of the area, and we felt relaxed as we resumed our trip home.

Hannah and Doug are very gracious hosts. The accomodations were comfortable, the location was perfect, and the food was excellent. We plan on returning later this summer and look forward to being back.
