If only these walls could talk... The Buckhorn Inn is an 1811 stage coach stop that will take your imagination back in time. Each of the 5 bedrooms begs to tell stories of times past as you relax amid the convienciences of modern time... satellite tv & WiFi. Or you can relax on our huge wrap-around porch in the summer watching the hummingbirds play. Or take a walk in the George Washington National Forest and get away from it all. May be you like to shop for antiques, visit a Sheakespear Theater, visit vineyards, tour the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library, or a mulituted of other activities in Staunton and the surrounding area only 20 minutes away. And no matter what you do, make sure you save room for breakfast because we have only one can't leave hungry.

A Nice Change of Pace

If you want fancy, then this is not the place for you. However, if you love history and want a nice, quiet place off the beaten path, this is a nice rest. The owners are very friendly. Enjoyed talking with their children at breakfast very much. The fireplace at breakfast was a great touch. I would definitely stay here again. Hopefully, next time we'll be able to do some hiking in the National Forest.

A Great Stay

Our hosts Garlan and Sylvia were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The whole facility is homely, very clean and provided for all our needs. The breakfast is not to be missed.

This is an Idyllic and charming place. Garlan and Sylvia help you to feel at home in their home. Sylvia even learned ahead of time about any dietary concerns (my gal has Celiac) so that breakfast would be as fulfilling as it could be. And was it!! The home cooked meal was perfect - large sizes and portions of french toast, eggs, bacon, and prepared to your preference. Their children are adorable and so well-mannered. We hope to stay again someday and try out a different room.

We sought this place out because it was just an hour from Camp Hidden Meadows, where we had to pick up our kids early the next day and wanted to stay close by. The Yoders have done a wonderful job keeping up this historic "tavern" / inn. We loved sitting on the porch in the evening, and the wonderful breakfast and conversation.
