The rooms are well appointed and the bed was comfortable. The small patio with deck chairs was a nice feature and the bathroom (with soaker tub and separate shower) was enjoyable following a day hiking in the mountains.

we tried to check in at 3:50 pm, the check in time is 4. They asked me to wait 15 mins. I did. A line started forming with people waiting to check in. It moves VERY slowly. I waited in line for an hour, got to the desk, my room STILL wasn't ready. We waited another 25 minutes in the car. We received no compensation for the chaotic check in. Probably wouldn't stay here again.

We absolutely loved our stay at Buffalo Mountain Lodge. The rooms are very spacious, clean and comfortable. The wood burning fireplace in our room was great after a day of hiking. Once we checked in we didn’t have to get into our car to drive anywhere, lots of trails right from your doorstep. We would highly recommend this property.
