The Buckhorn Inn

2487 Hankey Mountain Highway (Rt. 250) , Churchville, VA 24421 USA (Show map)


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.

Amazing Experience!

My wife and I stayed in the Hummingbird Room on Labor Day weekend. The Inn is located conveniently only 10-15 minutes from Staunton, and within walking distance of several hiking trails. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the porch access from our room, and had a very nice evening reading together on the rocking chairs outside. In the morning, we had a delicious, homemade breakfast that was the perfect start to the day. We'll definitely be back!

Nice getaway B&B. The food was excellent and the hosts very friendly and accommodating.

Second Time Around

4.4 on August 13, 2017

This was my second stay at the Buckhorn. I was in the area for a bike event last year and was late registering. As a result, the Buckhorn became my place to stay. It was a 40 minute drive to the event start so a little inconvenient in that way. However, the owners were very nice, helpful, and took good care of me. I liked it so much I chose to stay there this year for the same event despite the longer drive. Although the owners were away this year, their "substitute" inkeeper was just as friendly and just as helpful as I recall from last year. Breakfast was at a time I requested rather than a fixed schedule to allow me to get to the event on time. (The Buckhorn provides breakfast but not lunch or dinner service.) The Buckhorn is a historical, older building but was clean and well maintained throughout. Overall I would recommend the Buckhorn if you are staying in the area. My experience in two different stays was consistently very good.

Very pleasant stay in an historic house

We truly enjoyed our stay here. The family was very accommodating and the rooms we clean and comfortable. The breakfast was absolutely delicious (they even made an adorable truck pancake for our son). Would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Maple Festival Accomodations

4.4 on April 02, 2017

Comfortable. Personable innkeepers. We were in the area for the local Maple Festival, so we spent a good bit of time away from the inn. But, it was a nice place to return "home" to during our brief visit. We enjoyed the ambience of the weekend, and the inn was an integral part of the experience.

Cozy Inn Off the Beaten Path

We stayed in the charming Hummingbird Room in this historic inn. The innkeepers were very helpful, offering suggestions for a hike in the area and dinner options nearby. The homey breakfast was fun and convivial.

Much needed weekend away from homr

Very polite, friendly atmosphere. Slept like an angel on a cloud. B&B sits on noisey road, so not good for porch sitting. Quiet inside. Recommend the king bed room in back right. Scenic places nearby. Local restaurant is a trip back to diner days.
