“One of the BEST B&Bs ever - with cahracter, comfort and history!”
Reviewed April 14, 2011

The setting is perfect for so many reasons - close to the Yadkin Valley Wineries, beautiful, quiet countryside and ahome that has been beautifully restored. The owners are the quintessential hosts that offered clean and comfortable rooms with character and a fantastic breakfast that was topped off with stories of the family. Their beautiful deck gave us a wonderful place to enjoy one of those bottles of wine we bought along the way too! We will definitely be traveling their way again to enjoy that Vineyard suite again!

Once again we stayed at the Rockford Inn Bed and Breakfast on our way down south to visit my brother in Florida. We returned because we had such a lovely stay the first time. Such friendly, comfortable hosts - like visiting family.

Hannah was a great hostess. She saw that we were well cared for! The Rockford Inn is in a wonderful location near many wineries (approx. 30) in the Yadkin Valley Wine Region of North Carolina. You can also find horseback riding, canoeing, kayaking and hiking in the area as well as many excellent restaurants. The Inn was very clean and our suite, The Vineyard Suite, was very spacious and well appointed.

The Rockford Inn is the perfect spot for a getaway. The Inn is beautiful, with a sense of history (it's been in the family for over 150 years), and friendly hosts. Breakfast was terrific, with pecan crusted french toast, fresh fruit and sausage and bacon - mmmmm! We enjoyed a little antiquing nearby, and nearby wineries and restaurants are the perfect complement!

This is a BEAUTIFUL old home and Hannah and Doug were most gracious. The breakfasts were outstanding, the room was warm and cozy and it was the best getaway we've had in quite some time. I would recommend this bread and breakfast to anyone and plan on visiting again. It was the perfect place to stay and is easy assessible to so many winery's in the area!

My husband recently stayed at the Rockford Inn, along with another couple. We have stayed at multiple B/Bs across the country, and this has to be in the top three. While we weren't initially sure how comfortable a historical old farmhouse would be, it was a pleasant surprise to find both our rooms roomy, decorated for the time but not overdone, with such a rich history in every nook! Our bed was great - very comforable (unlike some other places we've stayed). While close to the wineries and shops of Yadkin Valley, the "out of the way" feel was wonderful to relax on the front porch or back yard, watch the birds and the leaves changing, have a cup of hot tea. Breakfasts were "southern with a flair". I have fallen in love with stone cut grits! Hannah and Doug were what we look for in hosts - available, friendly, but not intrusive. Having grown up in the area, it was nice to hear the history of the home and nearby town of Rockford. We were very surprised to have all of this for what we consider an extremely reasonable price. I would have no reservation about recommending this as a relaxing weekend or longer, and hope we can return soon. Ben and Julie Bacon

We recently made our second trip to The Rockford Inn. This low-key, unpretentious inn has become our escape of choice when we need a break from our hectic lives. Hannah and Doug have managed to create a place where you instantly feel welcomed. Guests have the complete run of the house (Hannah and Doug live next door) which adds to the comfortable, at-home feeling. There are always tempting snacks set out in the kitchen, plus coffee, tea and water/soda -- those little amenities that make such a big impact. Breakfasts are delicious and plentiful. We have stayed in the Blue Ridge Room and the Vineyard Suite, both were very nice, but the Vineyard Suite was more spacious. We like to go sit out on the back porch and enjoy the quiet. Would highly recommend to anyone seeking a little peace in a hectic world!
