We truly enjoyed our one night stay. The Buffalo Tavern is a lovely B& B. We wish we were able to have had more nights to stay as Doc is a fine Innkeeper. It is a bit out of the way, but with more time we would have found many nearby ventures.

JULY 2015. A great experience. The room, food & service was exceptional. Terrific coffee. Plenty of food at breakfast. Lots of attention to details such as offering variety & choices on creamers, sweeteners, hot tea flavors, bottled water & soft drinks. Doc & staff are very friendly without invading your space & privacy. We were in the President's Suite--worth the price. This B&B offers comfortable space to read, visit, etc--inside & outside. This is Doc's home & it feels like a home & not just a business. The town of West Jefferson is quaint with interesting shops & good food. We drove from N.E. Texas & were not disappointed. Highly recommended.

This was last minute trip, buffalo Tavern had a room available so I booked it. This place is a gem. It's located on a back road off the beaten path. It was so quiet and relaxing to sit out on the porch. The owner Doc was great too, very accommodating and a very good cook. I really can say enough about this place except that it was awesome.

Doc was on top of everything! A beautiful inn with unique appointments and gorgeous yard, far enough off of the main highway to not have to listen to the traffic. A truly serene environment! We will be back!

Awesome stay throughout and sitting on that beautiful porch listening to one of many creeks in the area that feed into the New River just takes you back to a simpler time . Doc ? A great host and the food was delicious ! Breakfast started at 9 but coupled with the great conversation with Doc and other guests at the table , it was almost 11:30 and no one minded at all . Home ? Yeah , that's what comes to mind . We'll be back and soon , Don & Pearl

I love this place. Doc is a great host and has a wonderful personality . You arrive as a guest and leave as a friend. Can't beat that. Tom and Mary Etta Portland, ME

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.

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.

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!
