I recently stayed at the Elmwood Village Inn and couldn't have been happier with my stay. The rates are very reasonable given the fact that you are in the middle of the best area of the city and the rooms are so unique. The home was stunning and there are so many little touches that did not go unnoticed. A... More

What a rare find! We will be staying at this first class inn whenever we are in Buffalo. The House is so conveniently located, just steps to the heart of Elmwood village shoppes and restaurants. Inside the inn you will find a "sanctuary in the city". A comfy, casual atmosphere dotted thoughtfully with art from local artist as well as... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Inn on Sunday February 16th for one night as we were in Buffalo to enjoy one of its music venues. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the house and how well it was decorated. All was perfect. The Inn has a warm and comfortable feel to it from the moment you... More

My brother and I have stayed here twice, both times with the craft beer scene in mind. It's within walking distance of the Village Beer Merchant, Cole's and The Blue Monk, as well as many other restaurants. Both the Middle Eastern Room and the Honu House are very well arranged, decorative and practical. The Honu House room has one of... More

My husband and I stayed at this B&B for a business trip and found the place lovely. Obviously if you use services like gym facility and concierge you should stay in a hotel, but I think this bed and breakfast has the added value of providing more "personal service". The host was present in the morning for breakfast and would... More

We stayed here in September while in Buffalo for the first time for a wedding. Not knowing a thing about the area, it was a wonderful location that offered a real glimpse into the old Buffalo in the center of a very charming and culturally diverse area. We loved our Skylight Suite. It was spacious, private, quiet, and had it's... More

Forget your stereotype of Buffalo. The whole city is moving to embrace a new culture of city life based on mixed use (combining places of work, residence and shopping), and food is one of the centerpieces of this new vision. To start your food tour of wonderful community gardens and independent restaurants and a thriving food policy council, a logical... More

We spent two wonderful nights in the Skylight Suite. It was very spacious and had everything we could have asked for. The bed was extremely comfortable and it was handy to have the little kitchenette. Both mornings we were treated to delicious homemade baking, coffee/tea and fruit. The location is perfect. You could walk everywhere. The Village has lots of... More

The location is extremely convenient, in a neighborhood near beautiful parks and parkways. The inn is well appointed, and our host couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly. She was extremely helpful in getting us properly oriented and gave us excellent recommendations for places to visit (Frank Lloyd Wright's Graycliff Estate and Darwin Martin complex) and restaurants (nearby Hutch's was...

Karen provides a most hospitable and comfortable inn, located within easy access of museums and downtown Buffalo and expressways to Niagara Falls. The inn is appointed beautifully with items from around the world, and she is a generous and accommodating,knowledgeable and FLEXIBLE hostess! We can't thank her enough for making our family reunion/wedding a true home away from home. Given... More
