My wife and I recently stayed at the Buffalo Tavern for a night for our anniversary. It was great! It is very secluded, and very peaceful--a most interesting house to stay in. Doc and Tracy were very friendly and went out of their way to accommodate all of our needs. Also, Doc is a great cook. He made us some sort of egg casserole that was quite scrumptious. When we departed, my wife accidentally left an article of clothing behind. Doc called us immediately to let us know, and Tracy brought it right to us, as we were shopping in the nearby town at the moment. Overall, a most delightful experience. We will definitely come back next year when in the area

Doc was very friendly and considerate. He and his B&B live up to his motto "Come as Guests, Leave as Friends." We enjoyed our stay. I only wish we were able to stay longer.

We enjoyed our stay and the peace and quiet of the Inn. The fresh fruit at breakfast was good and was really fresh. The baked egg dishes were really good, too. The baked items were dry and overbaked. We enjoyed our conversations at the breakfast table. The decor was really nice. other than the baked items we liked everything and plan on returning.

Owner, Doc, is terrific; loves interacting with his guests. Accommodations were excellent; truly a beautiful setting in the Carolina mountains. Hearty and very tasty breakfast prepared by Doc. A little tricky to locate the B and B- our GPS took us on a most interesting route. Give Doc a call for more precise directions. Leaving the next day for the Blue Ridge Parkway was so easy with the directions from Doc. So glad we found this B and B. You will enjoy your stay with Doc, other guests and the beautiful house.

We really enjoyed our stay. The tavern is a beautiful, old home nestled in the trees. The porch is perfect for rocking, visiting and reading. While the parlor is a little cramped with furniture, it is welcoming. The atmosphere is relaxed and the service is great. The rooms are clean and the food is excellent. Easy to get to town. I would stay here again!

This was certainly one of my best stays in the US. Doc and his assistant Tracy are adorable people, very friendly and helpful.

We had a great stay there at the Buffalo Tavern and would recommend it to any one looking for a great get away. The town and the towns people were so friendly. And even though "Doc" was not there at the B & B, Tracy took good care of us. Breakfast was awesome each morning. Looking forward to going back as soon as we can. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

My husband and I spent this past weekend at Buffalo Tavern Bed & Breakfast, and we had a wonderful time. We were greeted by Tracey on Friday afternoon. She welcomed us in and showed us around. There were snacks and drinks as we needed them. BREAKFAST was wonderful! . The room was very nice and comfortable. Tracey told us about places to eat in the area and told us about several nearby movie theaters. I would highly recommend Buffalo Tavern and look forward to returning.

Very welcoming and beautiful inn. We stayed in the suite which we enjoyed but would love to come back and stay in anyone of the guest rooms. Doc was wonderful as was his assistant Tracy. We, in the past, have gone to Boone and Blowing Rock at this time of year, this year we wanted to try something different. How glad we are that we did! West Jefferson was a wonderful little town. We spent the whole day Saturday walking in and out of each of the stores, window shopping, Christmas shopping and just talking to all the wonderful, friendly owners. We would highly recommend The Buffalo Tavern Bed & Breakfast and the West Jefferson area. Thanks Doc!

An excellent place to stop in North Carolina. The room was great, although the sheer was a tad bit small. Our host Patrick, admirably took over for Doc who was out of town. Patrick supplied us with an excellent dinner restaurant, and put together a marvelous breakfast. We were very, very pleased and woukd stop there anytime.
2,6 en octubre 07, 2013
We chose this B & B for the most part because of what we read about the innkeeper, "Doc." Unfortunately, when we arrived we were informed Doc was on vacation. The substitute innkeeper was very nice, but she informed us immediately that the snacks were not fresh and prepared by someone off the property. As she was serving breakfast the next morning, she told us the same thing--that the meal had been prepared earlier by someone else (and we presume frozen). One of the things that makes for a great B & B experience is the fresh, homemade breakfast. That was definitely missing on this visit. As much great feedback as the Buffalo Tavern has received, I can't help but think this was an uncommon experience explained by Doc's absence. But when you are running a hospitality business, you need to know the quality will be maintained when you are absent.
Respuesta del propietario
I am truly sorry that this happened in my absence. I thought I had everyting covered and had spent a couple of weeks getting all organized. From your review, I can see that I have to improve my training experience with my staff. The food is not frozen, by the way. We try to provide hearty, tasty breakfasts for guests and do our very best to make that happen. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts on your experience while I was not here to serve you. We'll do better!

For our honeymoon we stayed in the Flapper room. Spacious, clean and inviting only begin to describe our accommodations. Doc IS the life and breath of Buffalo Tavern. What a treat he is! We felt like we were staying with family and friends. And based on Doc's love of West Jefferson and the community, we cannot wait to go back and spend some time seeing the sights in town and the surrounding community.

Quiet, lovely location. Not from the quaint town of West Jefferson, hiking, the New River and so many other great mountain activities and destinations. Peaceful front pitch and upper porch. Rooms are not 5 star , but quite lovely and comfortable. Dix is a helpful and jolly host who is most helpful and serves a breakfast that is a hearty start to an outdoor day. You can't go wrong here!

We needed a two-night getaway for our anniversary, and wanted to avoid a hoity-toity type of B&B where you're afraid to touch things. We also didn't want to spend a truckload of money. Buffalo Tavern B&B was just perfect: beautiful setting out in the country, but near enough to town to have dinner out. Room was very clean, pretty and romantic (nice clawfoot tub, bath oil, bathrobes); and we had everything we needed, including WiFi since our phone had no service in that area. The romantic CD's (oldies from our era) and CD player were a nice touch. We had a porch near our room where we sat reading and listening to the dripping rain: felt like we were in a rainforest. The breakfast, prepared by owner and chef Doc Adams, was wonderful and plentiful: cheese-filled crepes with warm strawberry sauce one day, an egg souffle with fresh basil and tomato the next. One of the best parts of our stay was getting to know him, the history that brought him to the area; and to talk with the other guests at breakfast. Just a lovely stay for a reasonable price!

The Buffalo Tavern was a real find. Beautiful location in the countryside, peacefully quiet, rooms exquisitely fitted and furnished. The President's Suite was fitted with a small kitchenette, fridge, sink and microwave. Huge bathroom, everything you could need. The four poster bed was delightfully comfortable, but Doc's breakfast (French toast and ribbon bacon) lured me to the dining room. Doc is lovely to talk to, a real person with quite a talent for producing tasty meals. You can buy his cookbook while visiting. I would definitely stay here again, probably longer just for the relaxing ambiance.

Our stay at the Buffalo Tavern was awesome! Being our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast- staying at the Buffalo Tavern has made us BandB-ers from now on when we Travel. The house was quiet, beds very comfortable, and breakfast was delicious! The Victorian Soaking Tub was a nice treat for relaxing after a long day of hiking and biking in the mountains! We will be back!

I stayed in the "Governor's Room" with my wife for one night in May 2013. Everything was great! "Doc" Adams was very helpful in advance with information, road directions etc and very flexible and helpful about check-in arrangements. The "Tavern" is a beautiful historic house in a very pretty location. It is spotlessly clean and very well appointed. Regrettably "Doc" was unwell on the day we were there but he made sure we were very well looked after by Tracy, and breakfast was superb. Highly recommended.

Doc was very accomodating with my unsettled travel plans. He was gracious and asked what I'd enjoy eating for breakfast. He went out of his way to make a special presentation each morning.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Buffalo Tavern! Upon arriving Doc had cookies and refreshments waiting for us. The rooms were VERY clean and decorated beautifully. The views and sounds fro the house just put you in a complete state of relaxation. We stayed out on the 2nd story balcony with some wine for hours just listening to the brook across the street. A gourmet breakfast was waiting for us every morning. We really had a great time talking with Doc and his other guests. We learned a great deal about the area and some cool things about the long history of the house. Downtown West Jefferson is very close and is an adorable little town with great food and shops. The driving is a breeze if you follow Doc's directions. Do not use GPS or mapquest. Blowing Rock and Boone are also very close. Overall, we had a wonderful time and will no doubt be returning very soon!

We went as a quick get-away for Valentine's Day. We had a great stay at Buffalo Tavern. Very hospitable, clean, beautiful views, and enjoyable. Found Doc to be very welcoming and his breakfast very southern and tasty. Great location for shopping in nearby W. Jefferson and Boone, but still out in the country for the solitude. We will go back if opportunity comes up!

It was a blustery, snowy afternoon when we arrived at the inn. Doc met us at the door with a smile and told us there was coffee, tea, and cookies waiting for us. However, it would be a while before we enjoyed them because we were headed back out to try to find something to eat before we got snowed in. Our room was beautiful! It was upstairs and it incuded a eating area with coffee, teas, and cokes in the frig. The bedroom had a canopied bed and a cozy fireplace-just right for a snowy night. The next morning we awoke to eight inches of snow and something wonderful cooking in the kitchen. Doc had cooked up a delicious egg fratta and turkey sausage along with fruit and just baked beer bread. The only thing we missed was sitting on the balcony or the large front porch.

We only stayed for one night but it was a really good one. Doc was very friendly and greeted us on the front porch. It was very quiet. Definitely worth a stay if you are in the area.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary in West Jefferson. We stayed in the Governor's Room. The room was immaculate, romantic and comfortable. Doc met us on arrival and was very warm and welcoming.

Breakfast was excellent (Herb baked eggs with "surprise" tomato, cheese and a balsamic glaze, country sausage, fresh fruit and beer batter bread with fresh strawberries and fresh ground coffee.). I would highly recommend this top notch bed and breakfast.

Our stay at Buffalo Tavern was above all expectations. The southern hospitality of the inkeepers was amazing and our next morning breakfast was so exstremely special, it was like it was made for us and no one else. The scenery in the area was astounding and I would highly recomend the Buffalo Tavern to any couple that would like a totally private weekend alone and to be wrapped in the pleasures of southern comfort, GO TO the BUFFALO TAVERN and just use your imagination. Its incredible! Doc, thank you so much for such a beautiful stay in the georgeous NC Blue Ridge Mountians and much thanks to your inkeepers my hat goes off to them. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We look forward to returning to the great Buffalo Tavern! Simply Awesome!!!!!

Comfortable, historic inn close to West Jefferson. The personal attention and charm that we enjoy when staying in a B&B.

We did not know what to expect as we drove to the Buffalo Tavern shortly after nightfall last Saturday night. When we got there, we were greeted by a very pleasant, friendly, and kind innkeeper who gave us the keys to the President's suite for our anniversary celebration. We could not have found a quieter house or eaten better food, but the BED was so comfortable that we were able to rest better here than at home. And how we enjoyed Doc's stories as we sat casually around the breakfast table. The visit was lovely, the weather cooperated beautifully and we were able to get out and drive through the beautiful towns of Boone and Blowing Rock. And on the way home we stopped at a Christmas Tree Farm and took home a mountain tree! We will definitely be back to see Doc!! S & B

Excellent, excellent, excellent hospitality and stay. I can say this is the best bed and breakfast I have ever stayed in and I have stayed in quite a few. It is way back in the country but well worth the travel. The innkeeper gives very clear directions to how to get there we did not have any trouble. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone who wants to get away and relax.

We keep coming back each year because we love staying at Buffalo Tavern Inn . Doc Adams gives us such a warm welcome and does an outstanding job as owner of the Inn. We love the serenity, the beauty surrounding the home, and the homey atmosphere there. W.

The mountain surroundings with all its beauty draws us back each year. We love the area!

After a long flight and drive the Buffalo Tavern in West Jefferson was a pleasant waystation on our jouney to explore western NC. As expected, Doc was on the porch, the room was immaculate, and with a little preparation the "soak tub" in the room was more than willing to assist in easing the aches and pains of a long trip from California. The other guests were lively and helpful, many traveling long distances to return to the peace and tranquility of the "coolest place in NC". Breakfast was a unique experience with refreshed guests sharing a great breakfast with others. We were all discovering what a unique and novel place this history rich area of the Appalachian Mts is all about. As many people before us have commented...."We shall return !" Thanks Doc

Buffalo Tavern was just as quaint as the pictures portrayed. The rooms were clean and cozy, the staff friendly and welcoming, and the breakfast amazing. It was the perfect get away. I enjoyed reading on the porch in the early morning hours and relaxing in a bubble bath in the cast iron tub in the evening. I will definitely be booking another stay.

Great Historic location. "Doc" was out of town on family vacation. Due to this we did not get confirmation of our reservation or directions to the Inn. We arrived on time, could not get in, returned 3 hours later to get in. Breakfasts were good, but not the southern cooking we were expecting. Great place if you want to get away from everything; couple of miles from town, and not much to do in West Jefferson. Couple of restaurants we planned on eating at nights had gone out of business. Ashe County Cheese was the highlight of our trip. Plan on taking a large cooler & stocking up if you go to West Jefferson. Gary Burleson

We wanted to get away to celebrate my wife's birthday. I found the Buffalo Tavern on line and liked what i saw. My wife and I have stayed at 4 B & B's over the years, and the Buffalo Tavern was the best so far. We lived everything about it. The setting was beautiful - a quiet country road, surrounded by mountains, meadows, and Christmas tree farms. The Tavern itself is a beautiful house, and our room was very nice. The breakfast was delicious. Best of all was our host, "Doc." He made us feel right at home, and his outgoing nature is perfect, and created a wnderful atmosphere. We will definitely being going back someday.

This was our first stay at Buffalo Tavern. In fact, before 9am that morning, we'd not even heard of it. Found it on the internet. Reserving a room online was a breeze. Terrific price. A bit of a challenge finding it, but as we arrived we were greeted at the door by Doc, who made us feel right at home. Accommodations were great. Breakfast at 9, so we took our time in the am. Spent the day visiting west Jefferson and touring the countryside. Very laid-back ... a great get-away from the big city. We've made this a must-return for the Spring. Thanks, Doc!

Doc thought of every little detail and we were totally charmed by the whole experience. Linda cooked an incredible breakfast both mornings...so sweet and accomodating. The town of W. Jefferson was quaint and our options for hiking were unlimited. Thank-you for a wonderful weekend!

The Buffalo Tavern Bed & Breakfast is a quaint inn secluded in a mountain setting. Doc is a perfect host and you truly feel that the inn is your home away from home. We stayed in the President's suite and found it very roomy with all of the amenities you need.

This was my boyfriend and I first time staying at a bed and breakfast, and it was the perfect experience. We absolutely loved it at the Buffalo Tavern. It was a great escape for us to just relax and enjoy one another's company. Doc is probably the sweetest person I know. We felt very welcomed and almost at home by the way Doc treated us. It was nice that Doc took time to get to know us instead of just seeing us as another money transaction. Doc is an excellent, cook and I loved that he took the time to makes us such wonderful breakfast each morning. The whole house is just full of warmth and life and sometime soon my boyfriend and I are going to stay there again. The Buffalo Tavern has set the standards of what a bed and Breakfast should be. I just wanted to also say thank you Doc for everything.

It was beautiful day and the leaves out our windows were breath taking. The green meadow with the cows added to the whole atmosphere

Overall a great place to stay, but I didn't really spend a lot of time at the inn. If visiting the area again I will look them up.

This was our second visit to Doc's home. I am sure it won't be our last. The atmosphere is most delightful and the location is perfect for our needs. My wife enjoyed watercolor painting on the upper porch while I played golf and cards with 10 friends that get together once a year for the last 25 years. The food is superb and Linda was very attentive and helpful. We did miss seeing Doc this trip and hope his Mother's move went smoothly. I sent a link to this accomodation to a friend who motorcycles the Parkway on an annual basis. He has added to his list as a place to stay next trip! Look forward to our next visit.

This was my wife's and my first B&B. Buffalo Tavern provides all the conveniences of home (TV, Phone, Internet, Bath, Shower, Ice, Refreshments) for a very reasonable price. (Could use better access to electrical outlet near the bed where one would use the computer). It's a little remote, but not too far out. 10 minutes from restaurants. Breakfast was a gourmet treat. "Doc" could have done it on the cheap but didn't. Creative and tasty. Good conversation. "Doc" was helpful but not intrusive. He's a great host. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. We will stay there again if in the area and would recommend to anyone.

Doc Adams is a great host, he is very laid back and friendly. I would definately stay again and recommend the Buffalo Tavern to those traveling through the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

Very rural and quiet location with relaxing porches to view the surrounding mountains. The rooms are comfortable but could use a bit more table space. Breakfast, served family style, is a great chance to meet and talk with your fellow travelers. If anything, it is too much food; we could have done with less, or with options to serve ourselves to reduce the portion sizes. Breakfast is normally at 9 AM, also a bit late for many people, especially if you are wanting to get out and about for activities in the area. Depending on the day Doc might adjust that time to suit you so just ask. All in all, a very friendly place!

It was a very pretty B&B in a wonderful setting. The proprietor was gracious, gregarious and interesting. Breakfast was hearty and delicious as well as sociable. We would definitely return.

My best friend and I traveled from Va to Sc to see my new Grandson. We only stayed one night but it was wonderfull. The rooms are very elegant and very clean. The food was 5 star and our host "Doc" made us feel at home, even asking if we needed anything from the store when he ran into town. The upper porch is a delightfull little place that makes you feel as if you have steped back in time as you gaze out across the lawn and into the trees, catching a glimpse of the mountains. The only sugestion I could make to have made our stay any better was to have asked Doc to turn on airconditioning in the room before our arrival( As I have very little heat tollerence anymore) and to have had one more day to stay :) ... This is a real gem and We hope to come back in the late fall (bringing our Husbands this time as the place is very romantic.) This B&B really does go the extra mile and they provide all the little extras that make the difference between a good stay and a FANTASTIC stay. They have a wonderful mission statement and they truly seek to achieve it. Till we visit again, your friends, Dawn and Dawn

What fun to find a great B&B in the Jefferson area. Lovely inn, great in-keeper and staff. Enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon.

Great place to "get away from it all!" Stayed for four days at Doc's Buffalo Tavern, as part of a week long getaway in western NC. Doc is a great resource for the Ashe county area, and won't hesitate to hook you up with things to do and places to eat. The inn has a wonderful porch, so feel free to sit out in the evening and relax, after a long day of hiking or kayaking! Breakfast is great, and service is thoughtful and efficient. Quiet, peaceful, with a great host: what more can you ask for?
5 en julio 23, 2011
Buffalo Tavern B&B was the perfect "jumping-off place" for our brief mountain stay. Our plan was to see everything in all directions during the daytime and have a great place to come back to for a quiet evening. We loved being a little bit out of town, but still close for seeking out evening dining. With the superb and substantial breakfast, we saved money by skipping lunch, just having some healthy snacks. From our B&B we conveniently visited the restored courthouse museum in Jefferson, historic downtown of West Jefferson, the Blue Ridege Parkway, old railroad town of Todd, and much more. "Doc," our host, thinks of everything, and we'll call on him again when we head to this relaxing, scenic area.

I took my wife up for a suprise getaway.Doc was waiting on the porch for our arrival.He even called as to see if we got lost or delayed. We stayed in the presidential suite was more than we expected. At breakfast was on the spot. It was well worth the visit .Doc is an excellent host .There are so many things to do within a few miles of the Inn . Just remember that the sidewalks roll up in town at 5:00. Only the food places stay open.ENJOY IT!

Beautiful, clean room. In the middle of no where. Spent hours on the front porch staring at birds and watching trees grow. A most relaxing weekend. The Govenor's Room was a delight. Clean, restful, and decadent at the same time. I loved the crisp sheets, the excellent mattress and the clawfoot tub. My only complaint...I ATE TOO MUCH! LOL. Plenty of delicious food in the morning and snacks at night. A perfect weekend. We will definitely return.

The wife and I really enjoyed our stay. "Doc" Adams was successful in his mission statement to arrive as guests and leave as friends. We will certainly be back!

I wanted to go back to a place that I visited several times as a child, my mom was born there. My aunt and uncle lived there until they died. West Jefferson area is the way I remembered it as a child. Buffalo Tavern was a treat, we usually stay at motels.

"Doc" Adams runs a truly outstanding B&B - the location, house, room, breakfast and hospitality were all top notch. We are recommending Buffalo Tavern B&B to our friends and will definitely return.....hopefully before too long!

Hope to visit Buffalo B&B again when we have more time to spend in the area. Such a cozy place,loved the conversation and food at breakfast,I have and will tell all my freinds about you if they are in need of a place to go to get away. Thanks Doc!, Mike and Tracy

My wife and I came to Buffalo Tavern to celebrate our 25th. wedding anniversary. Doc met us at the door and we felt we had known him for a lifetime. The room we stayed in was the presidential suite. It was delightful and the canopied bed was extremely comfortable! The breakfast Doc provided was simply amazing! I will not reveal the details what we enjoyed, but I will say this: Be prepared for a real culinary treat! We heartedly recommend Buffalo Tavern and we will be visiting Doc again in the near future!

"Doc" was very gracious and made a heck of a breakfast! Loved the old home, the warm cozy feel you don't find in a hotel. My only complaint would be having to be so quiet. Walls have no insulation so noise travels.
5 en marzo 18, 2011
Our food was really good-Doc's meal was better than our first days breakfast. I think my only complaint is our room was VERY cold when we got there (this was mid November) and took a few hours to heat up. It would have been nice to have our room preheated. Doc is very knowledgeable about the area and restaurants. Will definitely stay again.
4,6 en marzo 09, 2011
This is a beautiful inn and we really enjoyed our stay. Doc did a great job making us feel welcome without intruding on our time. Breakfast was excellent and there were many other little touches that made our stay a delight. We hope to return to Buffalo Tavern in the future.

Spent two weekend nights in the Governer's room, which was great! Good room space, claw foot tub in room, but also a full shower bathroom built into the room for full privacy. Has everything that you'd think you'd possibly want, they have glassware in the room, tv with satalite, fireplaces, books, great porch/yard/views. Overall, I would never have expected this level of service. I had expected a small "mom and pops" place who might offer me dialup internet, but Doc is knowledgable and anticipates. Had wifi internet, etc. Great breakfast with some fun people and lots of great conversation.

It was our first visit to this B&B but it won't be our last. Our room was comfortable and cozy. Our innkeeper, Doc was very friendly and helpful with directions and suggestions for dinner and activities. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. There was delicious snacks and drinks provided in the evening for our enjoyment. Definitely want to visit this B&B again in the future.

What a wonderful weekend at the Buffalo Tavern B&B! It was just what we needed before getting back to business at home. Doc was a great host with delicious food and funny stories!
5 en febrero 07, 2011
Doc made us feel right at home upon our arrival. He gave us a tour of the entire house and told us bits of local history. Prior to our arrival my husband had asked Doc about dinner and he graciously called a local restaurant and had our reservations taken care of. Before we left for dinner, Doc also made sure we had maps of the area and information about local attractions. We couldn't have asked for a better birthday weekend at Buffalo Tavern. Our expectations of the B & B were surpassed just as was our experience on the beautiful Mount Jefferson. Sure hope the park can remain open!

To celebrate my birthday weekend and the New Year, my fiance took me here. As cold as it was, Doc came out to assist us with coming in. The ambiance was so comfy! The room was more than I imagined it would be. Breakfast in the morning and conversing with other guest was priceless. The views were awesome. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. I did not what to leave! I recommend this place (I'm very picky) and will definitely visit again! Doc's blueberry french toast are to die for!

My husband and I stayed at Doc's B&B to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful time and the breakfast was delicious. The service was unbelieveable and everyone was so nice. We stayed in the blue room. It was beautiful and very romantic. We truly felt like we were at "home away from home." I was especially grateful because Linda allowed us to use her cell phone to call our three year old son to say "goodnight" when I discovered we did not have any cellular service. This was our first time staying at a B&B and we would definetly come back.

We had a very fine time the 2 nights we stayed...Brian Adams was a beautiful host.

Innkeeper "Doc" and his helpers went out of their way to make us feel welcome, informed, and well-fed. The building retains its historic look and atmosphere, but is fully up to date in terms of modern amenities and comfort.

Everybody shouldhave the opportunity to try the Buffalo Tavern B&B. After dinner I was able to go outside on this fabulous porch and enjoyed a rocking chair, good book and cup of tea. The moutains in front looked heavenly. My bedroom was relaxing and the bed felt wonderful. Breakfast with Innkeeping "Doc" was great. Great Experience!!

A very pleasant facility and owner. Very much enjoyed the other guests and really would have liked to stay longer. Good value for the price. Needed better instructions from southbound Blue Ridge Pkwy.

"Doc" was the perfect host. He knew I was trying to surprise my wife so he sent all details to my work. We were able to check in when we wanted, and had a lovely afternoon sitting on the upper porch looking at the mountain. The various amenities like turkish towel robes, fresh muffins and hot tea in the afternoon were appreciated. Doc was happy to give us recommendations for our dinner. The breakfast was beautifully presented, tasted great and was healthy as well. We definitely recommend this place to others and plan to return.
4,6 en octubre 09, 2010
My husband and I believe that this bed & breakfast was our favorite compare to our other accommodations. Doc, the innkeeper, made us feel very welcome. Our bedroom was beautiful and charming which included our private bathroom. Even though it is an old house, I thought it was very clean. I loved the surroundings. Before dinner, we found ourselves sitting outside on the lawn chairs by the firepit enjoying the mountain view and drinking hot chocolate and eating cookies that Doc provided us. It was enjoyable to hear some of his stories during breakfast time. I would have loved to stay longer but we were traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Smokies so we were press for time. When we are in that area again, Buffalo Tavern will definitely be our choice for accommodations.

This is a great little B & B, especially if you like old charm as well as modern conveniences. Nestled in the mountains of NC, it is very quiet & relaxing. Loved the big porches & the clawfoot tub! Doc is a great host--very personable and friendly. Would highly recommend it!

The Inn is the perfect spot for Rest and Relaxation! Doc was extremely helpful in ensuring our arrival and stay was well taken care of. The rooms are breathtakingly beautiful and the porches are perfect for rocking and resting. The sounds of nature - birds and the nearby creek add to the peace and solitude we found there. We would highly recommend this Inn and plan to return as soon as our schedules will allow. Breakfast was perfect. Thanks Doc for a wonderful place to escape too.

Our first B&B experience was with "Doc" at Buffalo Tavern in West Jefferson, NC. Doc, the innkeeper offered us a warm welcome and continual hospitality throughout our two night stay. The house is beautifully decorated and immaculate. Our room amenities were outstanding as the two person clawfoot tub added the perfect finishing touch. The breakfast foods cooked by Doc were delicious. We are already planning our next trip back to our new "home away from home"!!!

We spent a weekend at the Buffalo Tavern on a murder mystery weekend. The inn was incredible, a great mix of history and convenience. The room was obviously a labor of love that dazzled. The murder mystery was carefully crafted and perfectly executed, a true weekend to remember and one that we would love to duplicate. Doc, the Inn and his staff are first class. Thanks Doc, "Carter and Nina"

Recently, we took a trip up to North Carolina and stayed at the Buffalo Tavern B&B...it was one of the most relaxing, beautiful places we had ever been. Our host, Doc, made us feel like it was "our home" and we all had a great time and laughed til it hurt! The breakfast was magnificent. We will be returning to the Buffalo Tavern as soon as we can. Thanks again Doc! Rudy & David.

We had a wonderful time at Doc Adams' Buffalo Tavern Bed & Breakfast Inn. He made a special effort to keep us well cared for the week we spent there.

My wife and I love the area and really enjoyed our stay at Buffalo Tavern. Close to West Jefferson. The owner "Doc" was very friendly and helpful, and made a great breakfast. Rooms are romantic and there is tea and cookies available in the afternoon. Lovely parlor room, or sit outside on the porch when the weather permits.

Doc helped me surprise my husband for our anniversary.He even treated us with flowers,wine and strawberries.This was our very first stay at a B&B and the experience was truely wonderful.We were the only guests for the weekend and Doc was a warm and gracious host. You can tell he truely loves this home and the guests. You become instant friends. The weather was rainy and cold but our room was warm and cozy. I especially love the fireplace. The food was delicious and good snacks too.We had a chance to see all of the other rooms in the house which were as lovely. The porch is so nice but since it was cold and rainy we did not get to spend much time on it. The view is beautiful and all is quiet. Just what my hubby needed! This is a great Inn and would love to go again in warmer weather.It started snowing the morning we left,luckily we only live about an hour and a half away.We really enjoyed our first experience with a B&B. Thanks Doc for a great weekend! Betty & Mike

We have stayed at Buffalo Tavern several times over the past two years. Needless to say it is one of our favorite B and Bs in the mountains. As we love to hike the mountains of NC it is close enough to trails and the Blue Ridge Parkway to access easily. Doc is a wonderful host and it is obvious that he loves this home and has a passion for caring for it and those who stay there. The setting is quiet and set apart from the distractions of modern day life. It is nestled among the mountains and the views and porches alone are worth the visit. All that being said the town of West Jefferson is just a short drive away and is a quaint town to spend the day browsing and for dining. This particular visit we awoke to snow falling in the area. The roads cleared easily that morning and the only thing wrong with our entire visit as always was having to head for home.

Doc was very personable, keeping us laughing with his stories. He made a spacial effort to accommodate my wife. She only -always- eats fruit for breakfast. Doc was very quick to see that she got that, while cooking a separate meal for the others.

The heritage or history makes you feel instantly welcomed home. The luxury oozes from every nook and cranny. Doc is like a brother, uncle, cousin, grandparent, ready to serve and sweet enough to hug!
