The Doctor's Inn
Ranked #2 of 3 Galax B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 20, 2012

The Doctors's Inn provided a wonderful respite from the bustle of activity at the Fiddlers' Convention. Margo cooked delicious breakfasts and made sure that we were comfortable. Every amenity was thoughtfully available; even audience chairs for the Fiddlers' Convention!

Room Tip: We stayed in The Bowie- second floor in a corner on its own hallway with adjacent bath.

We stayed for 2 nights the last weekend in July. Margo was a wonderful host and we immediately felt at home. Great location, an easy walk to town restaurants, shops and the historic Rex Theater, our destination for a Friday night bluegrass concert. The inn is exquisitely furnished with artifacts and mementos from around the world. Amenities are plentiful, with all the little things you might have forgotten provided in the bathroom. We enjoyed the Stamey room and even though it was on the first floor, it was quiet. Bed was very comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious! And oh the front porch! What a great place for visiting, sipping a glass of wine and unwinding from the day; we took full advantage both evenings we were there. We truly enjoyed our first stay ever in Galax and would love to make a return trip to this wonderful inn.

We stayed 2 nights in July. This is B&B. Margo gave us a very warm welcome & followed with delicious breakfasts. Could not ask for a better innkeeper or a better place to relax. We were visiting Galax to ride our bikes on the New River rail trail. The trail & our stay @ The Doctor's Inn made for a wonderful mini vacation. Hope to do both again some day soon.

Our stay at this charming B&B was great! The rooms are beautifully restored. Margo was great and breakfast was excellent. Galax is a neat little town. We enjoyed dinner at the Galax Smokehouse for some down-home rustic BBQ.

We stayed at The Doctor's Inn one night this week on a trip to the New River Trail. This is a very charming bed and breakfast. Beautiful old historic home right in the heart of downtown Galax--and a few short blocks from the beginning (or end) of the 57-mile New River Trail. The manager, Margo, couldn't have been more welcoming a wonderful. Beautiful common rooms, nice bedrooms and a great breakfast. But the best thing about The Doctor's Inn is the porch. The porch alone is worth the trip!

My sister-in-law was visiting from England and we took the opportunity to travel a bit of the Blue Ridge Parkway. We had only one night away from home and we could not have found a more delightful Bed and Breakfast in the area than The Doctor's Inn. Innkeeper Margo was warm and welcoming and the breakfast was delicious. The homemade cookies and brownies were also a welcome treat. The bed was very comfortable and everything was spotless.

My sister-in-law says that it was the cream on the weekend! Fabulous.
