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.... More

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... More

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... More

My wife and I enjoyed our second visit here as much as our first! The sitting rooms have lots of interesting art from around the world. The breakfasts were very elegant and were served by an attentive and pleasant hostess. We hope to visit next time during warmer weather to enjoy the deep front porch.

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