    Our stay

    Rooms are big enough but everything was just a bit tired. Staff were friendly and efficient. Food brought to the room from the restaurant and it was amazing. The parking was limited but we managed.

    I wish I would’ve asked for a room on the top floor, the noise from people walking up the stairs and in the room above was very loud. The wood was wet and wouldn’t burn. The staff was very nice and I liked the pillows.

    Nice romantic stay

    The place is beautiful and rustic and the wood burning fireplace was the biggest hit. It's too bad the hot tub wasn't open because of covid rules though.

    Our happy place

    Another wonderful weekend at Buffalo Mountain Lodge. I always appreciate the consistently positive feeling as I arrive and check into my room. The views are spectacular. The rooms are comfortable and inviting. And it takes just a few moments to feel relaxed ans settled.

    Mountain Escape

    Buffalo Mountain Lodge was such a wonderful place to stay. The crackling log fireplace was just lovely. We appreciated the room service (delicious) & didn't have to go anywhere. The bathroom was clean with L'Occitaine toiletries and heated floors. There was a huge free standing claw foot tub to soak in. We had a spectacular view of the mountains on the second floor (walk up), Would definitely return.

    This was once a beautiful hotel but now needs a good renovation. Beds are old and uncomfortable. Bath is grimy from age and is tiny. Chairs are uncomfortable in the room.

    Buffalo Lodge.

    Had a nice stay, room was a bit outdated and could use some renovating, but overall was still nice! We especially enjoyed having a real fireplace to sit beside every night!! The hot tub is spacious, but could definitely be warmer! The lodge is nice and close to Tunnel Mountain, so make sure you take in the view!
