Feel comfortable with your own private space, not a room in someone else's home!
Enjoy staying in a private room with a double bed in Buffalo's lively and historic Elmwood Village! We are located within walking distance of a wide variety of restaurants and coffee shops. Buffalo has a great reputation for its art and architecture community, so while you're here take a look at the Albright Knox or Burchfield Penny Gallery and take one of Buffalo's many architectural tours.
Niagara Falls (30 minutes away) and Toronto ( about an hour away) also make great excursions during your stay in Buffalo.
Elmwood village contains hundreds of locally owned shops and boutiques. If these don't suit your style, we are located just 15 minutes away from the area's largest shopping center, Walden Galleria Mall.
The historic rooming house contains many private rooms occupied primarily by individual, long term tenants. The rooms share multiple bathrooms and a large kitchen space. You are welcome to use the kitchen, but please be neat! Secure lockers in the kitchen are available for the storage of dry foods. The kitchen contains two large, shared refrigerators where you are able to keep perishables. Because the bathroom is shared, we ask that you are courteous, keep it clean and leave personal items in your room. Coin operated washer and dryer in the basement are available for guest use.
Common areas and hallways are professionally cleaned on a regular basis. First floor lounge contains a tv with cable, vhs & dvd players. The lounge is available for private gathering if reserved with enough notice.
There is plenty of alternate street parking is available. If you come without a vehicle, there are bus stops within walking distance!
We are located near many of the area's colleges, including Buffalo State, University of Buffalo, D'Youville & Canisius! And hospitals, particularly, Women & Children's, Buffalo General, Roswell and Sister's.
I want to do my best to make your stay in Buffalo great and are ready to provide any suggestions or advice to help you enjoy your stay! I do not live on site, but live nearby and am a phone call away if you have any questions or concerns! I also have attentive building managers for additional help on site.
I work during the day, so a check in after six pm is ideal, but can make arrangements for an earlier check if given a couple days notice!
This was my second stay at this same location, this time with my wife as well. The room is spacious, it's perfect for working from there, quiet for sleeping and clean. While the bathroom is shared, I never had to wait to use it, and it too is kept clean. During the coldest weather in decades, the building and room where still warm. All together, the building and room are charming, comfortable, clean, wonderfully located for walking around Elmwood Village, and a great deal for anybody staying in Buffalo. My wife initially had reservations about having a shared bathroom, but once there, she fully approved of the arrangement. Don't let this deter you. Finally, Emily is a great host and happy to offer up neighborhood suggestions. I highly recommend both the room/building and Emily.
Had a wonderful stay at buffalo! Emily was a wonderful host. Emily was very easy going about our late arrival. She was friendly and answered all our questions. Emily was even going to let us stay an extra night when we had problems with our bus, the bus problems ended up getting fixed and she was ok with that too! During our stay we took a bus up to niagara falls - easy enough taxi to greyhound bus 10-15 dollars and return trip was 14.40 dollars. We really enjoyed the big clean room which was lovely and warm. The shower was nice and hot and there was a handy kitchen downstairs. Thanks very much
We had a great time in this beautiful house just steps away from Elmwood Village. The house was very quiet and clean and we enjoyed walking around the neighbourhood. Thanks Emily!
Thank You Emily :)
I really enjoyed my stay. the room was Great, and Emily was beyond helpful.
I will call again when in Buffalo
I had a great time and love your place and the neighborhood. The building and room are very charming, clean, and clearly loved by their owner. And Emily was very easy to communicate with. I'd definitely stay again when in Buffalo!
Wonderful (email hidden)ly and Historic Elmwood Village.
Emily was a great host- Victor and the other gentlemen very nice as wellwho run the property.Very hospitable and right there to greet me! I have stayed here twice now and would def. stay again. I loved the room- so spacious- view of the trees and Richmond avenue with the beautiful victorians.
The entire place was very clean and nicely appointed. My room was quiet- there are a number of other people staying here - they were all very kind and my room never heard a peep out of anyone. The bathrooms are updated and clean as well.
you even get your own toilet paper! ha
The location was excellent- just a few blocks from elmwood- a great street from Buffalo state and albricht Knox all the way down to chippewa street there are bars, jazz, karaoke, great restaurants, antiques, retro and grocery stores, greek restaurants. shopping.
And the house is situated 2 blocks from The Left Bank, and essex pub- excellent food - darts and pool table- old style like NYC Old town bar and Grill. Then a few more blocks and you are a 5 points BAkery - a popular bakery with gluten free baked goods and great coffee. Owners are always there and very Friendly. Thank you Emily - your a terrific host!
suzanne e. NYC- Brooklyn- soon to be a Buffalonian again!
Yours was the first boarding house we stayed in, and we were a bit skeptical --- but it was just great! We loved the house, the room, and the location -- it fit perfectly into that beautiful neighborhood feel. Wonderful restaurants nearby, so close to everything. You were responsive, flexible and so easy to work with, thank you. We'll be back!
This is a great place to stay. Emily was more than helpfull and made my stay an enjoyable experience
Nice place to stay. Emily was a great host, great communication. The place was cosy, clean and very comfortable.
Emily was great. She was understanding when my crossover at the border delayed my check-in and was there to meet me when I arrived. She was helpful and willing to answer all my questions while she gave me a tour of the residence. I didn't have many questions because I'd previously looked up the area and what was around but she made sure that I knew she was available anytime if I needed anything. I found this out to be true when I had an extra concert ticket (someone backed out at the last moment) and Emily graciously tried to help me find someone else who wanted to go. The room was spacious and comfortable. There were shared bathrooms throughout the place but you never had to wait. The Wi-Fi worked perfectly, even from my room, and as well as in the shared common area. There was a kitchen where you could cook and store food and a laundry room if you needed it. I only stayed a couple days so I didn't partake in these added features. About the area surrounding the residence itself, Elmwood is a beautiful neighbourhood with lots of beautiful houses and scenery. There were plenty of bars, eateries and shops to satisfy my curiosity when exploring around. There was no shortage of transportation nearby, with a bus stop a block away and the metro train station only a few blocks away. If you're a walker like me it was only a half hour or so walk down into the heart of the city. All in all, the trip was amazing, the concert was phenomenal, and the stay was cozy and comfortable. Just what I was looking for.
