Buffalo Tavern is such a peaceful place to visit. The Inn was lovely and Doc was a great host. We were only able to stay for one night, but it was a great way to usher in the Fall season. We will definitely return!

The Inn was beautiful, well kept, and still historic. The rooms were comfortable and just like home, again still historic. We stayed in the President's Suite but walked through the other rooms. Views were breathtaking. Breakfasts were delicious and comfortable as "Doc" along with other guests sat down and conversed. "Doc" was amazing and makes the Inn what it is... More

Needed to blow off some steam and this is a great place to do it. Very charming old Tavern with lots of stories to tell.

Rooms: They have 4 rooms and all of them looked very spacious. Mine was one of the upstairs rooms in the front of the house called the “Flappers Room.” It was nice to be able to look out the window and see the beauty of the mountains.

My wife and I booked two nights at Buffalo Tavern for a short getaway and we are glad we did. It is a short drive outside West Jefferson which makes it great after spending the day on the town. Our room was quiet and very comfortable. We really enjoyed getting to know Doc and the other guests during our stay.... More

I love historical homes. You can just feel the history of the grounds. Doc has maintained the charm and renovated this home into a beautiful B & B nestled in Buffalo, not far from downtown West Jefferson.
