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.

Stayed in Stonewall Jackson room, much larger than expected, very clean comfortable, beautiful home and very nice area

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.

Perfectly Pampered!

Everything about the Buckhorn Inn was wonderful, especially innkeeper Sylvia Yoder. Since we're interested in history, she shared the story of the inn and gave us a tour. We arrived late on a stormy evening and Sylvia fed us a delicious peanut butter pie. In the morning, she prepared our breakfast to order. Accommodations were beautifully decorated with comfortable beds and a spacious bathroom. We felt perfectly pampered at the Buckhorn Inn!

The Buckhorn is charming, and was just the ticket to enjoy Virginia's beauty and warm hospitality.

Breakfast was lavish and delicious, and the Inn's owners are considerate, caring family folks.

Great Romantic Stay

3.8 on April 21, 2014

The Buckhorn Inn was a wonderful place for a countryside getaway. On the way there, you get to enjoy gorgeous sights of rolling hillsides, and the inn itself is beautiful and quaint at the same time. There are plenty of great dining options in town. After asking for suggestion at the inn, we planned to have dinner at Zynodoa, a renowned Staunton restaurant (which we still plan to go to sometime), but they were all booked up so we ended up eating at Aioli, a tapas style restaurant that was absolutely delicious. Afterwards we returned to the Brookside room that we had booked. It has a nice king sized bed, large TV, a private bathroom and a small reading room. It was the perfect place to spend the night. In the morning, we enjoyed a delicious breakfast in a rustic dining area. We also got to meet the innkeepers' daughter and enjoyed chatting with her. Her other siblings were running around outside. The breakfast was to die for and we strictly adhered to their one rule "no one leaves hungry". We filled up on pancakes, hash brown patties, bacon, sausages and eggs; although these were only a small percentage of the options we were offered. We could not have a had a better experience!
