Stay here, you will not be disappointed. From the minute we walked through the doors we immediately felt welcomed and impressed. This home has been stunningly renovated and furnished. Each geust room is designed a bit different. We stayed in Hummingbird Haven and it had a beautiful marble fireplace and a clawfoot bathtub with rain shower. Everything was clean and comfortable. The owner's attention to detail is evident in every space. Also the word breakfast does not give our morning meal justice. Fresh pressed juice, local roasted coffee, 3 courses from scratch all absolutely delicious. I can't wait to return.

Amazing stay. Worth a trip to Buffalo just to stay are the Harmony House. The owners, Holly and Daniel could not be more welcoming and friendly. Every step was perfect. We were welcomed by a beautiful garden outside and entered into a bright foyer with a mosaic tiled floor. Two traditional Victorian sitting rooms and the dining room are downstairs. Upstairs are the guest rooms. We peaked into most of them at some point during our stay, and they are each unique and meticulously designed. We stayed in the Sparrow Suite; it was perfect for us. The Victorian furnishings continue throughout; our room had a mirrored wardrobe that we both wanted to take home with us, and the sink was retrofitted from a traditional sowing table. That being said, the traditional is mixed with enough modern to make the stay more than comfortable. Breakfast is included and is four courses every morning! Easily some of the best breakfast I have ever had. Holly does most of the cooking, and the food is local sourced whenever possible. They are very able to adjust to any dietary needs.

To make the stay perfect, Holly and Daniel can add so many unique touches. We had two beautiful bouquets of flowers when we walked into our room. Our first night there was a perfect essential oil bath and warm robes. They also made us tea and some delicious sweet snacks on two afternoons. Holly really is wonder woman, and we would stay again and again!

PS- great coffee!

Daniel, Holly, and little Karina have poured their lives and loves into this historic property to bring it not only back from the brink, but up to the highest quality standards of historical preservation. At the end of my bicycle tour of the Empire State Trail, from NYC to Buffalo, I was fortunate enough to have found this place. They took me in, locked up my bike in the safest and coziest of garages (with a roof garden, just btw), and welcomed me to their exceptional city. Their location is fantastic for a walking tour of historical Buffalo, or a pub and wings crawl, or both (which was the route that I went with). The breakfast is exceptional, and even though I had to rush it in order to catch a train in Niagara, they were kind enough to ply me with two courses and then send me on the way with a to-go sweet potato hash - which was quite the treat to enjoy overlooking Niagara Falls. Couldn't have asked for a better place to rest after 8 days pedaling. Whether you're starting or ending your bike tour in Buffalo (or just passing through for good micro-brews and world class wings) this is a perfect spot to stay.

This was an overnight stop for us, on the way from Michigan to Maine. We normally stay at AirBnBs, but they were all booked up. What a delightful surprise! This inn was bought in a totally dilapidated state and brought back to it's victorian glory by owners Danial and Holly. Everything is very clean, the furnishings are appropriately period and the location is great. Several restaurants and bars are just a couple of blocks away.
But the best part is the breakfast. We've stayed in many B+Bs and the usual breakfast is cereal, milk, toast and maybe a muffin. At Buffalo Harmony House they take your order - we had a selection of "sweet" or "savory". You are served in a lovely dining room with cloth napkins. We had a vegetable fritata, banana bread French toast, lovely strawberry fruit cups and a delicious cherry and beet drink.
Treat yourself!

Stayed for two nights in late June and really felt we struck gold with this location. Absolutely stunning house, brilliantly-equipped and beautifully decorated rooms, with such friendly hosts. The history of the building is accessible to all visitors and the renovation journey is impressive to hear and read about. For us, the real surprise was the breakfast - a fabulous homemade three course treat every morning. Such care and thought go into each dish and it really topped the stay. The house is located around in a quiet neighbourhood but just a short walk away from lots of restaurants and bars - if and when we return to Buffalo we'll be staying here again!

We found this marvelous bed and breakfast when looking for a place to stay overnight after a concert.
After balancing closeness to Key Bank Arena, costs, value and the 'knowns' of booking with a hotel chain, we made the decision to choose Buffalo Harmony - without regrets!

It is a beautiful property with all the details to make it feel luxe and authentic. All the amenities you would need are there or available with many surprises around every nook. Sure, you might get more room in a sleek and generic chain but I haven't had a more comfortable bed or better night's sleep. BED ✅️

After the concert and sleep, we woke ravenous. Good thing, I don't remember the last time we had a 3 course breakfast. Delicious homemade cranberry pear muffins with cranberry compote and pear butter, Chai pudding with fresh fruits, fresh juice (beet, mandarin orange, apple), with the 'savory' option of eggs Benedict with lox and asparagus plus coffee and water. There was also a scrumptious French toast souffle and bacon for the 'sweet' option, with NY maple syrup. BREAKFAST ✅️✅️

The icing on the mini-vacay was the host, Dan. He wonderfully lead us through everything we needed and ready with suggestions.

They will have suggestions for parking, which luckily wasn't an issue for us on the side street. Also, you are in Buffalo in a kind of mixed neighborhood. This also means you have a lot of close options for dinner.

We're looking forward to visiting the property in warmer weather to see the lilies, clematis, oxycalis and other glorious landscaping we missed during our November visit.

Buffalo Harmony BnB is definitely worth the visit and worth a second visit for us!

This beautifully restored victorian B&B was perfect in every measure. Owners Dan and Holly were friendly, inviting, and the breakfast was thoughtfully made and executed, including vegetables from their own rooftop garden! The location was excellent - a neighborhood with a wide selection of fun and varying restaurants and bars. We were a party of three biking in from Niagara and the place was only a few blocks from the Peace Bridge; we were heading out on the Erie Canal bike trail the next day which was also conveniently only a few blocks away. They catered to our biking needs and had some great tips on local biking excursions. I cannot say enough about this wonderful place, the hosts, the food, the welcoming vibe and all-around great experience. Will definitely return!

It was a pleasure serving your group of bicyclists. We only wish we had a bite of those butter tarts you had. Maybe next time we can share one, we love them too. Keep thinking about more bike trips, there's lots of areas to explore here next time. Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. Can't wait to see you guys again.

Quiet place to stay and really relax before and after our trips to Niagara Falls. We stayed in the Bluejay room very comfortably and enjoyed our three course breakfast with rhubarb and strawberry crepes (fresh from their garden). Daniel and Holly were very kind and knowledgeable about everything - a very personalized experience. Recommend a stay!

The hosts made our stay extraordinary. We spent two nights at the Harmony House and had a lovely time. The Bed & Breakfast is located on the north side of the city in a historical neighborhood. Guests need to park on the street, but we had no issues finding a spot, on a weekday or weekend.
The property is welcoming, well maintained, and offers all the modern amenities you could want. The hosts are friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to offer restaurant recommendations and to make sure there was a to-go breakfast available for us when we had to leave early on our last day. And what a disappointment it was to miss the last breakfast! The multi-course breakfast was truly one of the highlights of our stay : ) It was just the right amount of food and everything was delicious.
We would recommend the Harmony House to anyone looking for a place to stay in Buffalo.
*There is one thing perspective guests should be aware of. The bed & breakfast sits at the edge of a very nice neighborhood (which extends to the north and west, and is worth exploring), but if you continue south on Wadsworth St., there is a homeless shelter on the next block and there are vagrants loitering about most of the day yelling at each other. We never experienced any issues, felt perfectly safe the whole time, and the house was always secured; but being unaware of this it can be a little disconcerting at first.

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay here and hope you will come again. Anyone who knows Buffalo knows that it is the city of good neighbors. The historic neighborhood of Allentown is ecclectic; there are people here from of all walks of life - hence there is a soup kitchen. They only serve meals there however, there are no overnight folks there. It is true, we are close to a lot of action - restaurants, art galleries, historic architecture, Lake Erie, and interesting city folks.

My husband and I just spent four nights at Buffalo Harmony House. The owners Holly and Daniel have completely rebuilt and furnished this gorgeous 1885 home and their loving care and attention to detail can be seen everywhere you look. Each bedroom is different and beautiful. We stayed in the Hummingbird Room which has a very comfortable king bed, a gorgeous built-in floor to ceiling armoire, and a large tub and rain shower in the beautiful bathroom. The B&B is located in a very cute residential part of Allentown, only a 6-10 minute walk to Allen Street with its many restaurants and shops.

The three-course breakfasts and fresh juices that Mary Sue prepares and serves are different every day. Each meal is made from scratch and tasted heavenly. She is really an artist disguised as a chef, and I'm not sure we've ever had anyone who has cooked for us with such talent and care before. When we told her we couldn't eat that much in the morning, she quickly adjusted her menu to fit our needs.

Daniel helped serve breakfast in the morning and gave us so many great suggestions for restaurants, places to see, best places to park, and more.

There's a small shared fridge for guests on the first floor where we kept some food & leftovers which we really appreciated using.

Staying at this gem of a B&B full of such kind, loving people, elevated our trip to Buffalo to a much higher level. We will definitely stay there again.

It was such a pleasure to serve guests like you two, what a thrill to us, and we take it as a huge compliment that you shared such kind words and took time out of your busy schedule to thank us. It's always easier to serve guests when they are open to suggestions to improve a trip, have some flexibility, and are willing to ask questions. We loved meeting you, hope you come back for some more fun in Buffalo and we'll cook to what your appetite is, not ours.
