Our stay at the Doctors' Inn turned out to be an unexpected highlight of our 2 week road trip round Virginia and North Carolina. It was perfect in every way. Every detail had been carefully considered right down to the luggage ramp from the parking area to the side of the inn. Every need had been catered for. The rooms and bathrooms were individually decorated in sumptuous materials and items that had been clearly personal to the doctors from whom it takes its name. The breakfasts were excellent and served in a beautiful dining room with a splendid chandelier hanging over the table. Margo the manager provided a perfect service from excellent cooking skills to a full round up of where we could find local music. We'd chosen to stay in the city of Galax by chance as representative of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We loved it here and were disappointed at having to leave after 3 days. Do visit Barr's Fiddle Shop for a remarkable history of bluegrass music, the excellent book shop, the expanding arts centre and the stunning New River Trail.
