Frank is a wonderful host. His stories are incredible. Very clean, cozy, quite, and the price is very reasonable. If I'm in the area again I will certainly be staying here. Again I can't rave enough about Frank. Besides making us feel at home he has been extremely flexible.

The Doe River Inn was built in 1863, but is in great condition. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are adequate and you share a bathroom with other guests. Continental breakfast is pit out the night before. The owners are in their 80's, stay up late and sleep in. They are very sweet!

The Doe River Inn Bed and Breakfast is beautifully decorated in a Victorian style. It's always clean and neat. I like that there are always plenty of towels. The hosts are friendly, helpful, and personable. We feel it is very reasonably priced. My husband and I stay there about once a month, and we feel almost as if they are...

We stayed for one night. Mary the Innkeeper was very nice. We like when the innkeeper takes the time to tell us a little bout the history of the place. The view of the river was just great. Keep up the good work!!!

I feel that the review from the previous guest is very misleading. We have stayed at the Doe River Inn and have never had a problem with the condition of the properties or the innkeepers. Frank and Mary are the most hospitable innkeepers of any B&B we have been to. The main house, the carriage house and the cottage are...

My family stayed in the cottage across the street from the main house. I was very dissatisfied with the condition of the property we stayed in. There were several electrical outlets and recepticals in the main living room without covers. This is a hazard in itself but ecspecially if you are traveling with a small child as we were. There...

The Doe River Inn was wonderful: modern, clean, and very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious, and served whenever we wished. You feel more like a houseguest than a client. Typical southern hospitality from our innkeeper, Mary, was in abundance. We stayed in the carriage house, which is newly opened. It is actually a fully equipped apartment. Next to it is...
