My friend and I stayed at the Doctors Inn on the first night of our annual cycling trip. This year, we started with the New River Trail, a great ride, and the trailhead's only about a mile from the inn. The Doctor's Inn is a beautiful house, located 2-3 blocks from the downtown proper, easily walkable.They have several rooms with...

This is one of the best B & B's we have ever stayed in. Margo who is the manager welcomed us with warmth and freshly baked delicious brownies. She recommended that we go to the Rex Theatre that evening (Friday) where there was a terrific Bluegrass Band playing. She also gave us two very good dining suggestions. The room we...

This place is just a gorgeous and a very unusual B & B. We had stayed there 5-6 years ago and returned again while visiting the Blue Ridge Parkway .... Galax is a great starting point for the parkway. Talk about clean and neat! The wood work and decorations throughout the house match the Victorian style of the early 1900's....

This B&B pays attention to every detail throughout the house. The room was spacious and there are many private areas of the house where you can just relax and enjoy the scenery. Our bed was very comfortable even though it was as large as we are use to. Galax is seven miles off the Blue Ridge and has interesting shops...

Thank you for your kind review, it was certainly a pleasure meeting you. I'm sorry that you might have thought that we share bathrooms, when other guests are here, but that's not the case. You always have your private bathroom, We hope you have a great fall and winter. Margo Innkeeper

This is a beautiful home with interesting furnishings (and gorgeous original wallpaper) and a convenient location to Galax and points outside. We had great walks to and from the Rex theater and the room was comfortable and quiet. Best of all was the radiant innkeeper who made two wonderful breakfasts and filled me in on lots of local tales.

We usually choose Select Registry inns while traveling. The Doctors Inn was a good choice just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, which is what we were driving. Arrived after 6:00 pm so Margo had a key and note waiting for us. Lovely home with a comfortable hospitable wrap- around porch. Room was fine with a very comfortable mattress, bathroom full...

The innkeeper kept in contact to assure we had directions, knew where to eat, and fulfill any needs. The first mid-week night we were the only guests so had all the well decorated rooms to ourselves. We could walk into dinner only a few blocks away. We were able to borrow two bikes for a visit to the New River...

“If you have trouble with stairs, ask for the Stamey room, it is downstairs. Be prepared for Luxury.”
