Weekend Along Rockford Road

Come enjoy the rich heritage and charm of the Village of Rockford, established in 1789. Historic Rockford Road is the perfect weekend getaway, just a few miles off of Interstate 77 or Highway 421.  You're a short drive away from unwinding with a glass of wine on the porch, a beautiful mountain view and a trip down the Yadkin River.

Just in time for Saturday lunch make your way to the Rockford General Store, located in the heart of the Historic Village of Rockford. Enjoy an old-fashioned hamburger or hot dog while rocking on the store's front porch taking in a slice of Surry County history reaching back to the late 1700's. After lunch visit the quaint store fronts of Rockford and the "Come Unto Me" fresco located in the old Rockford Methodist Church.

Following your stroll around Historic Rockford, it is time to unwind. Sample the award winning wines and enjoy the breathtaking scenery of Stony Knoll Vineyards, Hutton Vineyards, Ragapple Lassie Vineyards and Sanders Ridge Vineyard. As you tour these wineries, you will be enchanted by the rural charm, views of Pilot Mountain and gracious hospitality.

In the evening, a fine dining experience is just around the corner. The Restaurant at Sanders Ridge, located in nearby Boonville offers a taste of the distinguishable flavor and unique heritage of the North Carolina Yadkin Valley foothills through their carefully crafted homegrown and locally influenced wine and foods.

No visit to Rockford is complete without an overnight stay at the Rockford Inn Bed and Breakfast. Step back in time and enjoy the tranquility surrounding the Rockford Inn Bed and Breakfast, an Antebellum house (ca. 1848) situated at the crest of more than six rolling acres. Hannah will have her homemade apple cake waiting for you.

After a day of wine tasting, shopping, and dining, rise on Sunday, enjoy your breakfast, and make your way to Yadkin River Adventures for an excursion along our majestic river. Whether you choose a half day or a full day of river enjoyment, Yadkin River Adventures can accommodate you with equipment, provisions, and transportation.

Your weekend getaway along Historic Rockford Road awaits.
