“A friend and I shared the Dannelly Room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

This was my third stay at The Doctor's Inn. Each time I find more and more things to like. The front porch swing was wonderful. Margo, as always, made me feel right at home. This is one of my favorite places!!

This was the second time we stayed at Dr's Inn, and it was again wonderful. The home is so delightful and filled with beautiful and interesting items from around the world. The innkeeper is warm and helpful. And breakfast is a cut above what we've had in most other B&Bs. The two times we've stayed have been in the winter. On the downside, we didn't get to enjoy sitting on the lovely, huge porch. On the plus side, we were the only guests, so we had the house to ourselves... A real treat. And this way we didn't have to deal with sharing the bathroom with anyone. Being a 100 year old house, which was converted to a B&B relatively recently, the rooms do not have private baths. Another great thing about a winter weekend stay is their special two night offer - an approx 30% discount and a welcome basket with wine, cheese, etc... If you want a beautiful place to relax, it can't be beat.

Room Tip: We like the Dr Cox room. It's one of the more spacious rooms and has a comfy leather couch as w...

Thank you for your wonderful review of your stay at The Doctor's Inn Virginia. It was our pleasure having you visit us for the second time and we're glad you had such a wonderful quite and relaxing weekend. Sometimes it's good to have the Inn all to yourself, but at anytime you will not have to be concern about sharing bathrooms, that's a "no no" here at the inn.
Our goal always is to treat our guests as special as they are!!
We hope you can visit us again and enjoy this wonderful front porch when it's a warm and delightful day.

This review comes 5 months after our stay! We can still remember how much Margo and the Inn impacted us. We immediately fell in love with Margo and the charm just grew from there. Margo greeted us with great warmth. We had no reservations so she gave us a tour of the available rooms. It didn't take us long to make the decision and we made those reservations! Nothing was too much for Margo and our requests. We wanted to find dinner to bring it back to sit on and enjoy the Inn's glorious and spacious porch. She gave us information about where to get food and adult beverages and we were on our way. The special treat we enjoyed occurred when Margo, at the end of a long day, instead of heading home, sat down and visited with us on the porch! Such homeyness! The breakfast the next day was fantastic and Margo's special touches on everything were so appreciated! We traded recipes with Margo and just enjoyed thoroughly her company. The Inn is a seller but Margo puts it over the top!!! Sorry for such a long delay in writing this review but we never forgot about you, Margo! We will definitely come back! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Thank you for such a great review!! it was great meeting you both and having time to visit
on the front porch. The best thing about being the Innkeeper for this wonderful Inn, is meeting
great folks like you who before you leave have become friends.
Take care and hope to see you soon!

Well positioned and comfortable. The only issue which I think is quite important as we were there for 3 days, the beds were not made during the day for when we returned. Breakfast was ok.

My wife and I were in Va. to visit relatives and learned of the The Doctors Inn. Margo makes you feel right at home. The home is beautiful and beds were very comfortable. Margo prepared a different breakfast every morning and it too was wonderful. A very relaxing place to stay. Judy and Randy Halsey

Very nice home and had a great night's sleep. My mother and I were traveling back to Atlanta from West Virginia and decided to stay here overnight. Margo was very accommodating and breakfast was perfect. the only issue was that we wished we would have been able to stay 1 or two more nights to just relax and explore the town. Also we loved the decor and the stories behind many of the items throughout the home. Also attention to detail can be found around every corner of the home.

Margo's unique abilities make this B & B the place you want to come back too. Her warm smile & friendliness makes you feel at home. Each breakfast was different & delicious from most B & B's due to her tallented cooking. If in this area do not miss staying here!!
