Special Getaway

An Old Stagecoach Tavern Provides a Welcome Respite

Buckhorn Inn
The Buckhorn Inn was built in 1811 and was originally a tavern along the stagecoach route.

We enjoyed a much neededed getaway this weekend to The Buckhorn Inn. The historic tavern was built in 1811 and Stonewall Jackson changed stagecoaches there once. Later the building was used as a field hospital after the battle of McDowell. Today the inn lives on as a popular bed and breakfast run by Garlan and Sylvia Yoder. In recent times the inn has featured a bountiful buffet of country specialties. Be sure to save room for some delicious peanut butter pie!
