It is rare to find a property that mixes history, elegance and great service. Buffalo Ridge does it with ease. I found the service to be genuine. The food in the grill was great---try the buffalo burger! I took a tour of the facility and found the historical preservation to be top notch. Makes it an even more special place... More

Drove an hour to eat here. Asked waitress for a drink reccommendation- she starred at me until I told her to bring me a glass of wine. Did not bring bread or refills until asked. Ordered a blended with ice drink- large chunks of ice in drink when brought to table. Ordered strawberry short cake. Cake was hard and stale.... More

We spent a weekend in the campground and the experience was very disappointing. They do not appear to have staff on duty or anyone to check the campground. We were awakened at 2 a.m. by other campers who were drunk and very loud and there was no camp host or place to contact. The bathroom had one stall that was... More

We stayed at Buffalo Ridge Resort to visit family nearby. The resort has a variety of rooms to choose from; we were in Rm 105. Comfortable room, spacious bathroom. The Rock Room Restaurant offered a nice buffet with good food (weekends). The resort has an interesting history so be sure to check that out. There's an underground walking tunnel from... More

After looking high and low around the area to find a place to stay for a funeral we were attending in Hendricks, MN, I found this place on the web. What a wonderful surprise! A beautiful restoration of an old school for the blind, Buffalo Ridge has more of a campus feel than that of a hotel. The place is... More

Nice spot for autumn camping, with the fall colors. There are some walking paths, a tiny lake and a stream, fishing, a playground, and clean shower facilities for the campground guests. The campus includes a hotel, meeting room facilities, and The Rock Room bar & grill. The food was not very impressive for the cost, although the service was excellent... More

This review is for the Rock Room Restaurant and resort grounds, not for the hotel portion of Buffalo Ridge Resort. We enjoyed a nice dinner in the restaurant. I wasn't sure what to expect for service after reading a previous review, but the service was very prompt and friendly. Our food was delicious and there were no mistakes with our... More

Snuck to Gary, SD for a couple's weekend and couldn't have been more pleased with the ease of making a reservation, the front-desk greeting, the room and the grounds. Loved the history of this resort and the fact that a local entrpreneur turned the former School for the Blind into a place that provides respite for travelers and campers, dining... More

The Buffalo Ridge Resort is an unbelievable place. It is the former South Dakota School for the Blind. All of the buildings are the original school buildings. They are restored to beautiful hotel rooms that rent for under $100 per night. The campground has 29 sites of which over half are full hook-ups. It has an on sight bar and... More
