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
Why Tom & Jackie chose Afton

Month long stay
Our family was in transition- having moved back to the states from overseas. Tom and Jackie were so helpful and accommodating. Their home is beautiful and peaceful. We will definitely recommend their home to anyone looking for a vacation rental!
This property is incredible. Convenient and comfortable. Communication and checkin were easy. Great location near southern entrance to Shenandoah National Park, restaurants and vineyards and breweries. Great ammenities both inside and outside. We were very happy staying here and would book this property again with no hesitation.
Excellent spot to spend vacation as a family. We plan on returning!

Liz, it was a pleasure hosting your stay, we hope you think of us if you return.
We loved this cottage! So stylish and cozy, everything we needed.
The property had all of the essentials plus more! It was about 1/2 hour from skiing and lots of breweries & wineries to stop at & enjoy after. All of the house was updated & so chic! The owners were very pleasant and responsive.
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.
