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
We fell in love with the foyer and the front porch. Neither is special or grand by any means we just enjoy it.

A beautiful mountain retreat.
The cottage has all the amenities one could ask for. So close to the Skyline Drive. Perfect getaway.
Great place to stay
Loved this cottage. It was very clean & well stocked. I loved the location although you need to keep in mind there is morning fog which may set early plans back a little. If you are a train buff this is a place to stay as the trains roll by on a fairly frequent basis!
This was a quaint little property in the Afton Mountains. It was clean and comfortable for a weekend stay. The driveway was a little difficult to navigate especially at night and fog. We mainly needed the house for sleeping as we had a family wedding.
Rent this house!
We had a short stay here, but I wish it had been longer. This was one of the best homes we have rented on VRBO. The house had everything you could possibly need, was clean, close to several wineries as well as hiking trails, and the owners were fantastic.
Wonderful spot for a getaway!
Couldn’t have asked for anything better! This sweet cottage was equipped with everything and more! Owners were easy to get in touch with if needed. Loved the location to area attractions. Looking forward to going back!
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!
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.
