The Rockford Inn Bed and Breakfast
Table Of Contents
Step back in time and enjoy the tranquility surrounding the historic Rockford Inn Bed and Breakfast located in Dobson, North Carolina. Surrounded by vineyards and wineries of the Yadkin Valley Wine Region, our Antebellum house (ca. 1848) is situated at the crest of more than 6 rolling acres and will provide you with the simple pleasures and charm of country living while enjoying modern conveniences.
Take time to discover the architectural history of the Inn; its hand-planed ceilings, heart-pine floors, and hand-hewn logs that are exposed in the corner stairwell. Walk the grounds where century old oaks shade the knoll, where muscadine vines drape the meadow, and where a low fieldstone wall invoke memories of a simpler time.
Enjoy the rich heritage and history of the Village of Rockford, established in 1789, where the fresco, entitled "Come Unto Me", adorns the 1914 Rockford Methodist Church.
