Travelling with 12 year old son to take in Sabres game and Bills on Sunday. Much less expensive than a hotel with teh freedom to have your own kitchen, living room and separate bedroom. Elmwood village is a little oasis in a big city.

We visited buffalo from London as our son is on a university exchange trip for a year. We chose Elmwood Village Inn as it is near the college. Elmwood village is lovely and Honu house was a pleasant surprise. The decor is interesting with unusual items from around the globe. The master suite was really comfortable and homely. It had everything that we needed even an ipod docking unit! We were woken each morning with the smell of muffins baking. Karen is a brilliant hostess and recommended some wonderful restaurants for us to try.

A very comfortable home with Karen being a gracious hostess. Our large room was very nice with a jacuzzi, shower and a comfortable bed. Beautiful oriental rugs and interesting furnishings throughout the house. The breakfast was simple and tasty. The location is in a college area with good restaurants within easy walking and a short drive to downtown.

3 nights guests in Karen Powell's B&B in early August provided a memorable stay in Buffalo to my visitors (a couple from Brussels, Belgium) and me (senior from Alexandria, VA - a world traveler) last week.
I hasten to write this recommendation, because our stay was truly unforgettable. Our rooms felt like the kind of bedroom with private bath/shower you couldn't get in a 4 star hotel. Every detail, in perfect running condition, bottled water covering entire stay, beautiful bed and bathroom linens, radio with info on local AM/FM dial locations, etc. Wonderful coffee (or herbal tea) ready at 8 AM, accompanied with home-made healthy pastry, good company at breakfast table with other guests mostly highly cultivated. There was pamphlet info of current and ongoing cultural activities in Buffalo, along with ecologically friendly shopping bags which guests had available for use. What an impressive introduction to the American "way of life" for my Belgian friends! We were within walking distance of the Albright Knox Museum and the new Burchfield Penney Art Center (modern art). Not far from BufState U too, and the wonderful Park where nightly there were free performances of Shakespear plays.
There was a wide choice of excellent Elmwood Avenue restaurants, some extremely reasonable and lst class Menus. All this contributes to the myth that "Buffalo is the best kept secret". Don't miss it!
