We stayed at the Buffalo Gap Guest Ranch because it was pet-friendly and found a nice quiet place that was off the beaten track. The room was huge and could have slept six but it was just my wife and I (and the dog). We went to the musical in Medora and when we returned, it was very quiet and the stars were spectacular. The people were very nice, we had breakfast at the restaurant across the way the next day. Our only issue was the huge number of flies around.

Your review is regarding a guest ranch campground/hotel & restaurant; we are not affiliated with this company. We are a gift shop in the city of Medora, ND six miles East of the location you reviewed.

Wednesday. Being late September, there's not much going on in Medora. We enjoyed this place for the variety of things available.

One of two that were open on the off season. They have a little of everything though like most tourist towns, a little pricey. Be sure to go upstairs. That is where the bargains are.

I happened upon this shop on a bit of a tight schedule, not nearly enough time to truly see everything...and that was before I found the second floor! I found the cutest gnomes up there but talked myself out of them because of an already severe shortage of room in my sole bag and only two days into my vacation. But I did manage to take a picture of them to show everyone back home. Later on I filled up the car and ran back across the street the The Buffalo Gap to grab some SMALL souvenirs to take home (great selection of them by the register!) and went again to visit the gnomes, already kicking myself for not buying them. I had entertained the idea of buying them and mailing them home but the post office had already closed. Fast forward a week and I was home and still thinking about the gnomes, unable to locate anything like them. I decided I would contact the shop and try my hardest to convince them to do me this one massive favor. Imagine my surprise when I saw THIS on their website: "If you have a special request or saw something in our store that isn't on the website, click on the Contact Us link and we'd be happy to help!" I was obviously not the first person to see something there and wished they'd bought it! Within an hour of sending my email to them complete with the picture I'd taken, I got a response from Chuck saying that it'd be no problem at all to get those out to me. I talked to him on the phone later that day and my package was on the way by close of business. I suppose it should not come as such a surprise to have people and shops be THIS nice, owners who go out of their way and are just so friendly, but it truly is a rarity. I had the most amazing trip that was marked by amazing people, Chuck and everyone at The Buffalo Gap included. I can't thank them enough for going the extra mile for a customer in a faraway state.

A cute shop where we were able to find our ND souvenir. The wind driven lawn ornaments were beautiful.

We were recently in for souvenirs; big store, so one can spend quite a bit of time there, but if you need to use the restroom, they won’t let you. They’ll instead give you convoluted directions to the public restroom, blocks away. Employee was incredibly rude and felt compelled to spend 5 minutes price checking a $1.95 item instead of believing us. Nice store, but tourists need to be treated better.

Thank you for contacting us about your experience- we value your input and will strive to do better in the future. We are so sorry you didn't have an enjoyable experience at our store. Our building simply does not have the ability to house public restrooms. The large public restroom is 300 feet from our store. These are maintained by the city of Medora as a service because the vast majority of the historic buildings in our community do not have public restrooms. Our store is not unique with this situation. We will take action in our employee training to provide a better experience in the future and hope you will give us another opportunity to provide a positive experience. Thanks again for taking the time to let us know about your experience and how we can improve. Best Regards,

Sherry was as nice as anybody you could ever meet and no one should leave Madora without taking home one of her plush Theodore Roosevelt blankets!
