“Wonderful hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

David and Alice were wonderful hosts to us when one of our party took ill and ended up in the hospital. They could not have been more helpful, compassionate and understanding of our ever changing plans. The rooms are lovely and having a great deck to sit on at night and enjoy the stars was wonderful. Thanks again to our great hosts. By the way, the breakfasts are delicious and will fill you up until dinner.

Room Tip: We liked the upstairs rooms with the deck.

This was a perfect place to stay for our Bryce Canyon hiking trip. Alice & David were wonderful hosts and the breakfasts were outstanding. Plenty of food to give us energy for a day of hiking. They are located a few miles from Bryce Canyon, which was perfect, as we wanted to get away from all the tour buses/groups that stay in the hotels next to Bryce. Our room was large with a king size bed and great reading lamps. Wish it had been clear the nights we were there, as the view of the stars at night would have been spectacular.

Great location close to Bryce Canyon. Very nice, clean room with a great vista. Spotless bathroom. very good breakfast served by 2 great hosts, Alice and David. They made us feel like we were at home. Price was reasonable as well. We'd go back there in a heartbeat! Roger & Elaine from Arizona.

Just like visiting friends--nice rooms, wonderful breakfast at a shared table in the morning, and the dog at your feet! Isolated but convenient to Bryce Canyon. Only drawback was the lack of restaurants in Tropic...

Room Tip: can't go wrong here--all rooms would have a great view

You couldn't ask for a better location for your visit to Bryce National Park. This homey B & B is located about 7 miles from the park and is convenient to good restaurants. We arrived about one hour early and were able to check-in for our three night stay. Our room size was adquate and the bedding was comfortable. We were traveling with another couple and chose rooms off the patio. The view was magnificent! The breakfast was good, I don't eat eggs, but there was always plenty to eat, even sharing the eggs with my husband.

If you are the type of person, that likes a place for everything, and everything in it's place, this may not be the place for you. The common area doubles as there living room and is full of stacks of books. We like animals and told Alice not to pen the dog or cats during our visit. However, if you don't care for pets, you won't see them during your visit. There was some dust on the rungs of the rocking chair and stand that holds a saddle in our room. However, there are some extraordinary circumstances with the host that may have contributed to this, and it may not be the norm. Our towels were not changed after the first night, but were after the second night.

We enjoyed our visit and didn't let things like a little dust get is our way of having a great time. The price is very reasonable, especially if you pay in cash.

Buffalo Sage is without doubt the best b &b near Bryce Canyon and in Tropic, Utah! The rooms are beautiful, relaxing, and private with spectacular views! Breakfast is the best! And the proprietors are just wonderful, delightful people. The price is also the most reasonable, and yet you get the absolute best accomodations and food. Go and enjoy the trip of a lifetime.

The proprietors, David and Alice, are a charming, intelligent couple who really take pleasure in facilitating a positive visiting experience. The bedroom facilities are quite adequate, with our room having two king size beds, each of which was quite comfortable. Bedding is also adequate, with extra blankets should the night turn cold. The room was decorated with a Western theme, with a saddle horse and a saddle in one corner, with a branding iron behind it. Prints on the wall were consistent with the theme.

On each of our three mornings, we were treated to a delicious and nutritious, carefully prepared breakfast. For our evening meals, they suggested several local restaurants where the fare was good. They also made suggestions of additional sights that we might like to see, some of which were off the more traditional beaten paths.

We could not have asked for better hosts or accomodations!
