About Tom & Jackie
We moved to Nelson County from the Virgin Islands almost 40 years ago and soon "got hitched" at the courthouse. A few year later we pulled up staked and moved south to FL then West to CA before returning to Nelson and buying this house when as we started our family. We outgrew the house 7 years later moving and moved 8 miles across the ridge to a nearby town where we still live today. Our long-term tenants moved out in 2016 so we decided to do a "few things". We finished up in September 2017. We're very happy with the results and are guests seem to agree. We've been renting 2 St Thomas condos through VRBO for 8 plus years where we've collected 80 5* -Star reviews out of a total of 83 reviews posted and we have a "super host" rating with another popular rental site. The Afton Station Cottage is our newest project, the interior is finished and we think it's lovely. The grounds have been cleaned up but will remain a work in progress and likely take a year or more to more fully develop. We are very excited about the as yet to be opened Blue Ridge Tunnel project, a Rails-to-Trails through Claudius Crozet's historic 1860's rail tunnel. The eastern portal trailhead is adjacent to our property. The current projected opening date is Spring 2018.
Tom & Jackie purchased this House in 1988

Weather wasn’t great but Afton Cottage was! Very well appointed. Has everything you need for a trip to the mountains. Got out to near by hikes on Blue Ridge Parkway today finally - very convenient.
Thanks Tom & Jackie!!!
Adorable and clean
This little house was the perfect getaway place for my husband and me. Everything was organized and clean and the property owners were informative and helpful. We loved how cozy and tucked away this place felt while being minutes away from Breweries and vineyards we wanted to visit. We loved this place.
The cabin is very nice. The kitchen is excellent, the beds are comfy, and the location is very convenient to everything in the area.
Thank you and Happy New Year!
Afton Cottage is beautiful even in the fog and rain! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our two Boston Terriers enjoyed the long walks, too!
Thank you to the owners for making this lovely place available for others to enjoy!
A beautiful mountain retreat.
The cottage has all the amenities one could ask for. So close to the Skyline Drive. Perfect getaway.
Clean, lean, athletic property with tasteful touches!
Not one lent to the use of hyperbole or superlatives I must acknowledge this place as outstanding. Very close to Skyline Drive south entry point/ Blue Ridge Parkway north entry point, and Nelson 151 (wineries, a cidery and a distillery).
The small friendly and easily accessible city of Waynesboro is just 7 miles away. Charlottesville and Staunton lie about 25 miles to the east or west respectively.
