Wonderful Mini Vacation

5 on March 21, 2016

March 2016 This B & B stay was everything it should be. Dan & Cathy are gracious, accommodating hosts. The Buffalo room was spacious, clean and inviting along with the attached deck that looked out over the lake. Breakfast the 1st morning, in the dining room, was sumptuous French toast with fresh blackberries, spiced sausage, fruit, yogurt & granola. The second morning breakfast was on the veranda, overlooking the lake, with a spinach omelet, sliced potatoes and flavored bacon, fresh fruit etc.. This was a mini vacation for myself and a dear friend. We attended a concert, shared in wine and cheese and lots of laughter, while taking in the gorgeous view. I will definitely stay at Blue Buffalo B & B again, it was Fabulous.

Peaceful and Relaxing

My first B&B and I was skeptical; but after staying at the Blue Buffalo, I will definitely return. Cathy and Dan were most gracious hosts. Breakfast was great...especially out on the verandah! Fantastic views of Lake Travis. The room was very clean and spacious. It was quiet, relaxing and very peaceful. Really good experience.

Amazing Experience!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Buffalo B&B on New Year's Eve! From the moment we arrived at the house, the Innkeepers (Cathy and Dan) were very accommodating and hospitable. We felt at home in their beautiful waterfront house. There were amazing lake views from our room (Buffalo Room) and the adjacent deck to our room. The breakfast was delicious! We wish we knew how to fix gourmet food like they do! Lastly, the bed was so comfy! We had the best sleep and woke up feeling very refreshed! Thank you Cathy and Dan for an amazing experience! We will be back!

7th Anniversary Surprise!

5 on July 01, 2015

This place is absolutely beautiful. My husband surprised me with a get away for our 7th anniversary (June 8-10th), and the owner's were amazing when it came to accommodating to our dietary needs. Extremely friendly, lovely breakfast, and the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! I am a little late in reviewing, Kathy and Dan, but thank you both so very much for sharing this little hidden gem with anyone that would love to visit. We will see you next year! With love, The Seymours

My husband and I celebrated our 13th year wedding anniversary. I simply Googled this B&B and I made my decision based on the reviews. Both Cathy & Dan are amazing. Such warm & welcoming spirits. The bed was extremely comfortable. The lake front views were really nice. And let me not forget the amazing breakfast. I'm glad we found this gem, sort of off the beaten path. I'll definitely recommend & we'll visit again. ¿¿¿¿

Charming B&B, Fabulous Hosts

5 on March 09, 2015

We could not have been more delighted with Blue Buffalo B&B. The location is absolutely perfect - on the lake with gorgeous views (A+ views from every room) while just a short drive from restaurants and entertainment. The bedrooms and bathrooms are well appointed, very clean, and the bed was so so comfortable. The breakfast was spectacular... everything was so fresh, wonderfully delicious, and there was plenty of it! Cathy, Dan, and their friendly yellow lab were the perfect hosts - so welcoming and accommodating. We can't wait to go back!

Amazing Hidden Retreat

5 on September 11, 2014

Amazing from the time of arrival! Cathy and Dan are wonderful hosts, welcoming you the minute you arrive. The house is very cozy and comfortable as was the bed itself located in a nice, oversized bed room with desk and seating areas. We watched the sunset from the balcony in the evenings. We awoke each morning to the lake view through the glass doors, a wonderful coffee aroma and a fabulous breakfast each day. The grounds are well landscaped, offering numerous separate areas and levels for privacy. We played fetch outside in the grass with their amazing yellow lab, Kirro (love her!). Didn’t make it down to the water as I had a broken foot during our visit, but the lake was very scenic from the bedroom, living and dining areas, the yard, balconies and patios (and even through the window in the water closet). Cathy and Dan have a beautiful art display in the home which we enjoyed and the music enriched the atmosphere. Perfect! We will be returning and would recommend the Blue Buffalo to anyone. Thank you Cathy and Dan.

Gorgeous and cozy B and B

Have to admit I was a little skeptical at first about a bed and breakfast but from the moment we pulled up the view was breathtaking, private parking, the house was gorgeous and very welcoming inside and out. The bed was like butter! Cathy and Dan were very accommodating. Food was exquisite, fresh and healthy. Will definitely be going back again.
