The Buckhorn Inn
Ranked #1 of 1 Churchville B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 November 2011

My family and I planned a reunion with family that live in the area. Throughout the entire planning process, the hosts, Sylvia and Garlan, were delightful and accomodating! The house is very large and offered a parlor we could gather in and relax with coffee, teas and snacks available all the time. The beds were VERY comfortable!! They wanted our stay to be as comfortable as possible-and it was! The food: OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! Everything was homemade and portions to fit a king! The hosts accommodated ANY time that we wanted to eat breakfast. They were completely flexible in everything we needed. The breakfast menu was delicious, fresh and homemade. Sylvia even stopped to sit and chat with us over the banquet dinner she had prepared for our first reunion night. That is what makes a B&B so special-the personal touch. A warm welcome to start your day, and a hearty breakfast to send you on your way! This was a wonderful stay and I would recommend this Inn to anyone!! We will be back!!!

My husband and I found this simply charming home beautiful and friendly. The hosts, Garlan and Sylvia, were geniunely warm and friendly. I felt like I was visiting a family of dear loving relatives. The hosts really made the weekend special and their attitudes reminding us to remember what is important in life. Sylvia's cooking was fantastic. We are still savoring memories of the Yoder family and their historic inn.

Room Tip: Lovely views from all the rooms, and the home has a wrap around balcony with hummingbirds hovering a...

From the time we got there we felt unwelcome. The woman working the desk was annoyed at the time of our arrival ( 5:30pm). We were " the people I've been waiting on". No introduction to the place was given. A brief tour that ended in the bedroom we were staying at and the door being closed as I was stepping through the doorway. The bed was comfortable, the A/C was not. You couldn't really tell the difference if it was on or off.

I was looking forward to breakfast. The sign outside said fine dinning. They have a cookbook as you come in with the Buckhorn Inn recipes so I was expecting something grand. I was greatly disappointed when I was brought a plate with three pancakes and two pieces of extremely salty bacon. My girlfriend, the vegetarian, was brought three pancakes. Their syrup wasn't real maple syrup even thought they did have several brands for sale, not to mention the syrup container had cobwebs on it. Their cereal options consisted of generic store brands ( no milk), and they put out a bowl of whole oranges, overly ripe bananas, and apples. Lastly, their coffee tasted like it had been brewed for the fifth time already. My recommendation is to get a room in town and stay far away from this place.

Very nice people who own/run the place. But... if you want a hot breakfast on a Sunday, you have to have it by 8:15, or you miss it. Never been to a B and B that you couldn't sleep in a bit and still eat. Everything was comfortable, pretty clean (dead flies in the bathroom cabinets- yuck), and very peaceful. But for the money---- I expected too much I guess.

Room Tip: doesn't really matter what room you get- they are all pretty much the same. Suite is only $5 mo...

The Buckhorn Inn is a delightful and tasteful blend of old and new. Claw foot tubs, but modern plumbing and flat screen TV's. Original heart pine floors, very fresh paint and a roaring fire add to the inn's warmth and appeal. The host family of this circa 1811 inn is incredibly gracious and accommodating. Their made to order breakfasts include eggs fresh from their own hens. BTW, there is something special about having your drink order taken by a five year old girl. Beautiful drive for a weekend getaway or a bike ride.

Went to the Buckhorn Inn for the first and last time, for Easter brunch. Wait staff was clearly overwhelmed; they basically forgot we were there!

Located in the George Washington National Forest, this unique B&B was originally a stagecoach stop in the 1800's.Our hosts, the Yoders, are a very gracious and friendly couple who make your stay very pleasant. We enjoyed the hospitality that was afforded us on our recent weekend stay. We enjoyed conversing with their two young daughters over breakfast Sunday morning. Recommend that you check this out for a nice place to get away.
