Oh sure chain hotels seem to have it all, but they do not have Karen Powell. They do not have her home made morning offerings, friendly conversation, nor a side porch. They do not have great art throughout, interesting guests to get to know, nor a side porch. No chain can match the location on Elmwood, which yes can be... More

As this review is placed...this is our second time staying at Karen's Bed & Breakfast. The place is wonderful and Karen is such a sweet woman with a great personality. The other guest are friendly as well as the residents in the area. There is plenty to do and places to see while you are there. The rooms are nice... More

Karen Powell, the congenial hostess of this B & B is most friendly and accommodating. The ("Mid-west") room in which we've stayed the past two years is quite small and a bit noisy because it faces Elmwood Avenue which apparently never sleeps. However, the white noise machine that Karen provides does help. Likewise, the bathroom is quite small. Nonetheless for... More

First off --- location, location, location. I came back for my 40th high school reunion and didn't want to stay at one of the chain hotels. I looked around and luckily there was a room available. The location (did I mention location) is great. You have the restaurants, the coffee shops, the shops, the art gallery, the park all within... More

My wife and I stayed here on our recent trip to Buffalo. Great location, right at the center of the action in Elmwood Village. Easy walking distance to many attractions, including the Blue Monk Pub. Karen is a wonderful hostess! We had some activities planned, but Karen quickly set us straight with trips to the Pierce Arrow Museum and the... More

Beautiful home, lovingly restored and filled with the proprietor's varied and attractive collection of art and objects. I stayed in 2 different rooms, but attractive and thoughtfully outfitted. Excellent location in a lively neighborhood of shops, restaurants, etc. Proprietor is knowledgeable, helpful,and a first-rate hostess.

We highly recommend staying at this wonderful b&b. There is nothing to fault about it... from the beautiful rooms to your gorgeous host, Karen. We loved our stay, it was a lovely way to finish our holidays and we thank you, Karen, for everything. 😊 💐

Right in the delightful district of Elmwood Village we stayed here for a couple of nights. The top floor room is very cosy suite , more like an apartment. The Village area is a great place to stay with lots of restaurants and stores all within walking distance. Karen is an inviting host and very knowledgable on the area and... More

If you've ever had a friend who opens their home to you, is great company and a great host, but lets you have your space and come and go as you please, then you know what it is like to stay at the Honu House in Buffalo. Right in Elmwood Village, the heart of a grass-roots small business movement called... More

Spent two nights at the Inn last week while in Buffalo on business. Chose it for the lower rate from the downtown hotel. Was so delighted with the beautiful, comfortable room. The bathroom was surprisingly stylish and unique. Delicious coffee and muffins each morning. The drive to my downtown meeting was easy and only 15 minutes. Karen is a joy... More
