My husband and I just returned home from visiting our son in Afton and stayed with Danielle and Marcel! The rooms are beautifully and simply decorated, immaculately clean and very comfortable beds! Danielle and Marcel are wonderful hosts-gracious, welcoming- making you feel so at home; even setting us up with our traditional evening tea where we enjoyed relaxing in the living area with our son. The breakfasts that Danielle prepares are amazing- accommodating for everyones preferences - the first morning we began with a plate of homemade apple/banana muffins (which we could smell the delicious aromas all the way upstairs-just like home) fresh fruit platter, then an asparagus/ leek frittata and fresh greens salad lightly dressed, local sausage and toast from homemade bread! The next morning was a delicious mixed fruit platter, eggs Benedict and apple crepes! So delicious- with beautiful presentation and amazing hospitality! The location of this B&B is easy to get to from the main roads and lots to see and experience from this location; or just sit and enjoy the breathtaking views of the mountains and livestock grazing. A great place to relax or go adventuring with lots of hiking locally, great local restaurants and breweries/ vineyards (Flying Fox vineyards on premises) but did not visit. We did visit the Frontier Culture Museum which was an amazing experience and history lesson (highly recommend) -located close by in Staunton! I just hope that with all these great reviews they are receiving...
that we can still get a reservation for our next visit!
