My wife and I had a very nice stay at the Buffalo Tavern B&B. Doc was an excellent host and the morning breakfast had good food and good company as guests chatted with Doc. The rooms are set up to keep their turn of the century charm and it came with an in-room bathtub. You almost did not want to leave to explore the beautiful mountain countryside. I highly recommend if you are traveling near Boone/Blowing Rock to take a look at this B&B. You won't regret it.

Nice comfortable stay. Didn't get to meet Doc but Tracy was friendly and helpful. Our bed was a little more springy than I'm used to but the tub in room was romantic. Its an old house so it has creaky floors, several fireplaces(gas or electric logs), and sound can travel. At Tracy's recommendation we ate at Boondocks in wj, very good with its own brewery. Breakfast at the buffalo tavern was good with different menus the two mornings we were there. My wife loved an egg dish and I loved the stuffed french toast. Overall it was a good stay and we would return again.

We have selected this B&B for the 3rd year in a row as our yearly winter get away to the mountains after the holiday. The room setting is cozy and comfortable, we love the tub in the room. Breakfast is to die for. Doc takes great pride to provide a hearty and delicious breakfast. He goes out of he way to make you feel at home at the breakfast table with his stories. The price is excellent for the location and the comforts.Close to the little town of West Jefferson with much to offer from dining to shopping. Thank you Doc, we will be back next year! Rebecca & Ed.

Just got back from Buffalo Tavern Bed & Breakfast and it was great!! We were warmly welcomed by Tracy, who made our stay wonderful and memorable. Upon entering our room there was soft music playing, fireplace ready to roll and the temperature was perfect! We relaxed in the parlor the first night, met some new friends and laughed the night away. Loved my soaks in the claw foot tub in our room. Saturday brought fun in West Jefferson, including the long slide at the park, supper at Shatley Springs with our new friends and more parlor time which included Tracy and stories of the history of the Buffalo Tavern. Breakfast each morning was scrumptious and filling. But the table conversation between all the guests was what made the mealtime so enjoyable. We look forward to staying at Buffalo Tavern again--very soon and bringing folks with us!! Thanks for the warm hospitality--Mark & Melissa Lankford
Thank you so much for your review of Buffalo Tavern! It's always so gratifying to read how much our guests enjoy our Inn. I will surely tell Tracy, my assistant innkeeper, about your review! She will be very happy!

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!
