Located at the West entrance to the North Cascades National Park at the confluence of the Cascade and Skagit Rivers. This 1889 roadhouse was a frequent watering hole for the gold miners, mountain men and lumberjacks traveling up the Skagit River into the North Cascade mountains. Today it is a 4 STAR luxurious Bed and Breakfast frequented by hikers and outdoor enthusiast from around the world! The famous Buffalo Run Restaurant is across the street!

We stayed three nights here while hiking in the area and were quite surprised by the size of the room and overall lodge. The breakfast was good and it was kinda fun to wait on yourself since all the food is kept in a refrigerator in the main area. The restaurant was wonderful and the location of the hotel very close to North Casades NP. Marshall, the owner, gave us some great tips on hikes in the area.

We enjoyed both the inn and the restaurant. The room was very clean and comfortable. The food was great! Will stay here on our next trip to the North Cascades.

We stayed at the Inn for a rafting trip that our in-laws purchased for us. We were the only one's at the Inn and had the place to ourselves. The owner was the best and left the key for us and a fridge full of yummies! The room was just perfect with plenty of space for all three of us. In the common room where you can have your breakfast there were some board games and we played a couple of them. I slept so good that night and had a great breakfast in the morning. We will use the Inn again and we highly recommend it to others, its sooooooo worth it. Thank you again from the Russo Family!!
Thank You for the great 5 STAR review!

I found this motel by accident when searching for a place to go that would be about two hours out of the city. Best place ever the room was amazing. The only issue I had was our Tv had closed caption on and we not turn it off. However we did not go there for Tv anyway.
A big THANK YOU for the wonderful 5 STAR review!

We tried to drive the owner crazy by canceling and "un"canceling but he was very kind and patient with us. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back - hopefully the weather will be more agreeable. We all enjoyed our meals at the restaurant as well. The owner was also one of our servers and spent quite a bit of time with us telling stories and laughing. Thank you!!!
A BIG THANK YOU for the 5 STAR review!

The Buffalo Run Inn appears rustic from the outside, leaving me to wonder what the room would look like. I was thrilled to find that it was very modern, spotlessly clean, and had everything we could want, including coffeemaker, minifridge and microwave. The bed was very comfortable, and everything in the room seemed new. We had dinner at the Buffalo Run Restaurant across the street. It features a charming courtyard garden eating area with hummingbird feeders--watching these little guys was a delight! The food was great, and the owner gives a 10% discount to people staying at the Inn. This was just a lovely place to stay in a beautiful natural area. The serve-yourself breakfast in the morning offered lots of choices for a healthy, filling Continental breakfast.
Thank You for the great 5 STAR review!

The refurbished rooms were finished very tastefully and were exceptionally clean. Despite the hotel's location next to a country road, my room was very quiet and I had the best night's sleep of this trip. The continental breakfast offered good choice and included fresh oranges. This is likely one of the better lodgings on highway 20.
Thank You for the very nice review!

Since I had made most of the plans for our trip, my wife did not know a thing about where we would stay as we traveled to North Cascades National Park for our first time. As we approached the area, she noted that the motel properties were decidedly run down looking and expressed concern that we were in for a less than ideal experience. Well, this was our thirteenth night in a motel and it is her favorite place so far, hands down! She loved the decor in the room, an outdoor moose theme, and we both loved the bed. Best night of sleep on our trip! We did not try out the restaurant but I wished we had been there on a warmer day with more time as I would have loved to eat "with nature" outside behind the restaurant as they had one of the most inviting outside areas I have ever seen. The items they had for breakfast were very special, just perfect! We will definitely stay again when we return!
THANK YOU for the wonderful 5 STAR review!

Clean and comfortable with big plump comforters and pillow-top mattresses. We had a nice bath with jetted tub, and the room included a microwave and coffeemaker and fridge. Our only complaint was the thin wall (I guess) between us and the next room--at any rate, we heard every word loud and clear of the lengthy cellphone calls the woman over there made just as we went to bed and again at 7 in the morning. Restaurant is full of bison decor and we enjoyed watching the hummingbirds zoom between feeders just outside the window at our table, which looked out on a nice pansy-lined patio. Food we had was ok but not great.
Thank you for the nice four star review.
