Charming place! Charming host!

Quaint and beautiful B&B with a host who caters to his guests with TLC, in a beautiful area, and a perfect location to explore Grayson Highlands in Virginia or Grandfather Mountain and other spots in North Carolina. And, the town of West Jefferson is worth exploring -- lots of art galleries, cute shops and a couple of excellent restaurants.


Charming B&B

4.6 on April 23, 2015

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend. It was perfect! Far better than anybody's experience. The house itself has a lot of charm. Doc the innkeeper and Tracey are very interesting and informative people to talk to. The house location is great to get to a lot of the local attractions. I would not hesitate to recommend. Every room does have private bath tv and internet. The breakfasts were way beyond my expectations.


A Gem Worth Finding

Stayed 2 nights in this quiet West Jefferson, NC town. Loved hearing the birds and the wind and not much else. Was greeted upon arrival by "Doc" Really nice to talk to and enjoyed not only the conversation but our breakfast he prepared for us as well. This is a spot I plan to return to. Thanks for the hospitality and relaxation.

Innkeeper Response

The Perfect Place

5 on March 12, 2015

With all of the various bed and breakfast options in North Carolina, it's tough to find one that is more than just a place to stay, but also a lasting memory in itself. Buffalo Tavern Bed & Breakfast is one of these places by far. A place with great people, good conversation, and extremely comfortable accommodations, in addition to an outstanding breakfast cooked and served by Doc "the innkeeper". Located close to things to do, places to eat, and shops to explore, this B&B provides the convenience of short drives into town while remaining in a relaxing and quiet atmosphere. As you can tell, our stay was absolutely enjoyable and will bring us back for years to come!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind review! It was my pleasure to have you as my guests!

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!
