We stayed for two nights. Room was cozy, private bath was more than sufficient. Food was fantastic, host was very helpful. On the weekends there is live music in town (2 blocks), plenty of shopping and dining options. We really enjoyed our visit to Galax.

This was an awesome little B and B which really helped make our Fall journey along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Inn is a beautiful building which just oozes character. It has been exceptionally well decorated featuring wonderful items from all over the world. Our bedroom was very luxurious and we did not mind at all the bathroom not being... More

We travelled to far Southwest Virginia to look at some property to buy and stayed at The Doctors Inn for two nights. Margo, the Innkeeper, is wonderful and helpful. The Inn is immaculate and every amenity you may need is provided. Breakfast was a quiche and bacon.....delicious. The floors are a little creaky but what do you expect from a... More

The Doctor's Inn is a quintessential B&B.....period furnishings mixed with new fun things....excellent breakfast....kindly innkeeper. Clean, clean, clean! Many extra amenities in the bathroom plus lots of fluffy towels made the inn a standout.

This gracious old home has large rooms, but not all en-suite bathrooms. The public spaces felt overdecorated, though with interesting items from the former owner who traveled the world. The stairs creaked unmercifully. Breakfast was delicious, though served at 8:30 only. I felt that the fact that the innkeeper was not in residence was kind of a problem, but basically... More

Came to Galax to bike the New River Trail and to hear music. We biked and heard great Old-time music. But, the surprise highlight of our visit was our stay at The Doctor's Inn. As with other reviewers, Margo, our phenomenal hostess, handed us the keys to the house and left each afternoon. In the morning we would follow our... More

Margo, the Inn keeper was exceptional!!♥ She made you feel right at home and was very pleasant to talk to. We need alot more people like her.... More

This house is beautiful and it is decorated richly. It really felt elegant to stay here. We rented two rooms and we had the entire house to ourselves. Not sure if that is guaranteed, but it sounded like it may be. Since the hostess and the maid stay elsewhere, we literally had the entire place to ourselves and that was... More

Wonderful place, wonderful reception from Margo, the manager. Galax is at about 2500 feet, so even in summer it is a cool place to visit, for those living in the East Coast lowlands. And, great access to one of the best rail-to-trail conversions in the East Coast, the New River Trail.

My wife and I stayed here whilst travelling down the Blue Ridge Parkway, and it was an absolutely fantastic choice. The Innkeeper, Margo, is absolutely lovely and the epitome of hospitality making us feel especially welcome. It's a beautifully and sensitively kept historical B&B, complemented with nice little person touches from Margo. Rooms are spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable with lots... More
