About Mike and Wendy Maiocco
Our full time home is in Wilmington North Carolina where we spend many hours enjoying the coastal waterways of the Cape Fear region. Wendy works in the culinary field and Mike has a hypno-therapy business. When we are not busy at work we are working in the garden, fishing on our boat, or playing in the water with our dogs, Camden and Noodle.
Mike and Wendy Maiocco purchased this House in 2018
Why Mike and Wendy Maiocco chose Afton
We fell in love with the Afton area when Wendy's Mom built a log home on Jessica Lane (she lives up the street!) 15 years ago. We have spent many hours hiking and enjoying all the area has to offer during all of our visits to Mom' house. We have always admired Windy Knoll and were so excited when the opportunity came about to purchase this wonderful home.
What makes this House unique
When you see Windy Knoll for the first time you will understand why we fell in love with it..... setting is picture perfect. Sitting on the front porch and looking out over the beautiful grassy landscape is truly relaxing. The sunlight streams in the windows, the wind chimes blow in the breeze, the birds sing in their trees.....

Quiet & peaceful
This is our second trip and loved being here!
Beautiful Foliage Mountain views!
Beautiful Foliage Mountain views spending a Relaxing time on the comfortable front porch! Wendy was very accommodating taking care of all our needs! Thank you for the delicious Starbucks Coffee that was provided. This was a wonderful getaway, the mountain views on the sly line drive were breathtaking!
Great house in a great place
Large, well maintained house that was well stocked with everyday use supplies. Near great hiking and Charlottesville. Really enjoyed our stay.
What a great house! Windy Knoll was exactly what we were looking for. Tucked away in a beautiful, quiet, private, tranquil, serene and secluded setting....but conveniently located to all the amenities that the area has to offer. We had the best Fall getaway weekend visiting with our family! Loved seeing the deer and cardinals. Windy Knoll is so peaceful and relaxing.
Wendy and Mike have the gracious gift of hospitality. They created the perfect home-away-from-home experience. Their attention to every detail provided all the comforts of home during our stay.
Being able to bring our dogs, Finnegan and Heins with us was an important part of our getaway weekend. Thank you for being pet friendly and welcoming them! They had the best time! The gates on the awesome front porch were a bonus for pets!
We truly did not want to leave! See you soon, Windy Knoll!
Come on back to Windy Knoll anytime Daniel! So pleased to hear it was a happy time for you, your family , and of course the dogs!
Take care and happy fall.....
Heaven in the Mountains
Our recent stay at Windy Knoll was truly heavenly. This home was beautiful, impeccably clean, comfortable, and so thoroughly stocked with any supply and amenity you could need. The huge porch had tons of comfortable furniture and a million dollar view of the mountain. The beds were so comfortable and there were plenty of living room and dining room chairs for a family. It was the little extras that really gives this home an excellent rating, such as the plush towels, soaps and lotions and such, and the kitchen had more cooking supplies than I have at home (even a milk frother for your latte). Wendy was always available to answer questions. We can’t wait to stay here again.
Thank you for the lovely comments Robin . I am so pleased you were happy at Windy Knoll. Wishing you a beautiful fall season and come back to enjoy again some day!
We had a wonderful anniversary weekend in a wonderful home. We will definitely come back whenever we can!
So glad to hear your Anniversary was wonderful! Thanks so much for spending it at Windy Knoll and enjoy the Autumn Season....
