Wonderful place

We thoroughly enjoyed are stay here. We stayed in the presidents suite which is spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was amazing and Doc even made it gluten free and tasty. Everything about this inn was top notch and we will happily come back to it

Wonderful Stay at Buffalo Tavern B&B. We will be back

4.8 on October 13, 2014

We won a weekend at the Buffalo Tavern B&B at a silent auction for a non-profit. We had no expectations other than this is a B& in a very small town; we're sure it will be fine. Well, it was way, way beyond fine!! We checked in very late on a Thursday evening and "Doc" was very accomodating. Our room was clean, cozy and comfortable. Breakfasts meals were amazing, we met wonderful people and every recommendation that "Doc" made was "right on"! We had a great time, did lots of fun things, loved West Jefferson and we'll be back to stay again.

Mountain Retreat

My first B&B experience. Recommended by a friend, this B&B far exceeded my expectations. The inn keeper (Doc) is attentive to detail, hospitable, and will ensure your stay is comfortable. Highly recommended!

Friendly Staff made our visit special

We had a wonderful time at the Buffalo Inn. The house and surroundings were beautiful, the beds comfortable, and the breakfast delicious. But what made the trip especially memorable was our hostess, Tracie. She was warm and welcoming and reminded us of why we like B+B's so much. We will certainly be back as guests at the Buffalo Inn.

Relaxing bed and breakfast.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening and morning at Buffalo Tavern recently. The room was comfy and well appointed, and Doc is a superb host. We'll be back!

An Awesome Getaway!

5 on August 17, 2014

The time I spent at Buffalo Tavern was amazing! From the cleanliness of the room to the gourmet breakfast served up by Doc each morning (you do not want to miss this treat!), I highly recommend Buffalo Tavern. The rate was exceptional for the value received. Although I was there on business, I left feeling as if I had been on vacation. Thank you, Doc!

A nice safe stay with Doc

I cannot comment on the food because I have many diet restrictions and I brought my own food but Doc sat with me each breakfast and let me enjoy his company. My room and the house were very nice and I felt safe and secure since I was travelling alone.

Great Place to Stay

I can't say enough good things about the Buffalo Tavern B and B. Great food, beautiful location, owner/caretaker bends over backwards to provide a nice place to stay. They even have Wifi and Direct TV.

Gorgeous home in the most beautiful setting!

Signature Dish

Doc's Creamy Peach-Filled French Toast
This is a delicious French toast variation that needs NO syrup of any kind! It's served piping hot with warm peaches. I always include a salty sidedish--bacon, or country ham, for instance. Guests love my French toast. I also serve delicious and piping hot stratas of various kinds, biscuits and sausage gravy, omlettes and fresh fruits, and, sometimes, family style! Come to Buffalo Tavern and let me serve you!
