This is a great place off the beaten path but within striking distance of Niagara Falls. The grounds are great, our room was nice and breakfast was the best. We weren't able to have dinner here but if breakfast is any indication...wow!

I'm in agreement with the other reviewers that found this inn to be upscale, beautiful and very clean so I won't repeat what they have already said. However I will caution guests that if you're looking for a friendly, relaxed, welcoming environment, this may not be for you. The innkeeper, for whatever reason, was stoic and unfriendly. He offered us... More

I apologize if the stress of losing a wonderful father-in-law that week and working for my daughter with the arrival of our new granddaughter caused me not to be at my best. The Inn always asks the guests if they need assistance with luggage. If one of our petite front desk ladies is on duty, there is help from a... More

The Asa Ransom house is well landscaped and well maintained. It has attractive period furniture. In a word, it is "cute." However, functionality is another issue. Most frustrating was the bathroom - there was a cute new toilet, but it was designed so that the toilet seat would not stand up on its own. The television in our room, cutely... More

The "Cute" new toilet has been adjusted to remain open when desired. The TV remote just needed a new battery. Sorry for the allergic reaction to the bathrobe, in our 39 years of serving the traveling public, this was the first time someone has had a reaction. I will check with our soap supplier to see if the formula has... More

We spent three nights here as our Buffalo base. It's just east of the city so a little quieter and the area was nice. Easy road access to Niagara Falls and the Finger Lakes, we did a day at each. The property is nice and a good value. Dining on site is convenient. Breakfast is off the menu and there... More

Thank you for your suggestions, they are much appreciated. We have upgraded the linens with a higher thread count (started with the suites and deluxe rooms) and will complete the upgrade shortly. Thank you for visiting and hope you enjoy your travels to other Select Registry Inns. More

We stayed at Asa Randsom house for one night while we were seeing the Rollings Stones in Buffalo. The inn is about 35 minutes from city center.

Thank you for your review. We at the front desk may not have mentioned the modern amenities such as a refrigerator in the closet, complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the Inn - no pass word necessary, complimentary beverages, a welcoming cheese and fruit bowl and a very quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Hope you will visit us again if your future travels bring... More

Never would I have imagined, being so delighted in a bed and breakfast! The trip was centered around celebrating our 46th anniversary! We decided to go to Niagra Falls, a place we had never been. Our son had given us two Select Registry certificates, so therefore we ended up in Clarence, NY. This particular B and B was tastefully decorated... More

This was our first B&B, we loved the experience and have been converted. The rooms were clean, the bed very comfortable the food fantastic. Breakfast featured warm pastries and muffins, fresh fruit and berries, and a wonderful menu.

Asa Ransom House reflects it’s mid-nineteenth century character, with many antique furnishings and décor in keeping with its historic nature. The grounds are lovely, including a pond with fountain at the rear that can be viewed from the guest rooms at the back of the inn. If you book one of these rooms, you will have a porch/balcony where you... More

We visited the Asa Ransom House recently for dinner. It was a Saturday night on which they offer a 4-course price fix menu. At first we were a bit concerned about 4 courses being too much food, but the courses were very well planned as to amount of food. The prices vary by main course selection. All courses were excellent,... More
