We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at Buffalo Ridge. The staff were very accommodating for my elderly father with recliners in each room which was important for his sleeping comfort. The rooms were comfortable with refrigerator and microwave as well as desk and internet connection. The imaginative re-purposing of a former school for the deaf and blind is an... More

My husband and I stayed during the Thanksgiving holidays. Rooms were comfortable, clean and quiet. I'm familiar with the history as the School for the Blind and that past is tastefully a part of Buffalo Ridge. Beautifully and lovingly brought back to life.

Arrived at Buffalo Ridge on the eve of Winter Storm "Astro". Had a wonderful dinner in the Rock Room and retired to our comforable queen room. Next morning woke up to many inches of snow, blowing wind and icy roads. Being from Florida, Mary at the Front Desk knew we were not excited about getting in the car to drive... More

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
