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

This is a very warm and welcoming B&B. Karen is a friendly and gracious owner. We were comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our weekend, our room, and light breakfast. It's within walking distance to many stores. We hope to stay again very soon

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
