Buffalo Bill's House


Had such a great birthday weekend at this beautiful historic house! Not only is there so much to see and do inside the house, there’s lots to do in the surrounding area. Obviously we spent our first night in the game room, watching Silence. We took a day to explore Pittsburgh, visited some shops and local sites used in the movie like Moxley’s, Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall. In the evening we enjoyed time in the dining room eating cake – a request you can add when booking, followed by scene setting in the basement pics, ending the night watching Hannibal in the living room. Sleep like the dead in the bedrooms, the beds are amazing. I even asked the owner what type mattress they are but his lips are sealed, I think he just wants me to visit again. We’re already talking about coming back when it’s warm to enjoy other outdoor activities at the house and things we missed doing the first time. 10/10 would recommend.

…I do wish I could stay longer but I’m having an old friend for dinner.

Stayed at the Buffalo Bill house May 6th and to say we were impressed by the detail that was put into this house would be an understatement . From the basement to the top floor we were blown away by how creative this house was. Beautiful piece of property in a quiet town and the fact that it’s next to the railroad made it better. This was better than staying at a hotel. We definitely want to book again in the future.”

Chris and Family,
I want to thank you so much for an amazing weekend at The Buffalo Bills House.
My girlfriends and I had the best time. Not the normal “Bachelorette Party”
getaway but we’re not the norm! We celebrated in true style while watching
scary movies, cooking -having old friends for dinner…;) and creating silly fun
memories. The home was so perfect! You really can tell how much you all take
care of this spectacular property. We were also welcomed by near-by neighbors
as we walked the property. Thank you for the cool mug, shirt, and magnets! We
will definitely plan another trip in the future!”

Best Regards,
Sandie P. and Friends

“My wife surprised me for my 50th birthday with being able to spend the night at buffalo bills house, the greatest on screen serial killer. If you are a huge fan of The Silence of the Lambs then you have to spend the night here at this beautiful place. My wife is a historic preservationist and she was so impressed with how amazing the house looked and how well kept it was! This house is in great hands with Chris and Deanna Rowan! I was star struck once I went inside the house, with amazing props, artwork, and even an amazing game room, trust me you will have a great time spending the night at Buffalo Bill’s House! If you want to get the chance to feel and see cinematic history this is the place to stay! The Silence of the Lambs is regarded as the greatest horror movie of all time! This place will not disappoint. The stay here at Buffalo Bill’s House has got to be the greatest birthday present I have ever received and I will come back next year! A big thanks to Chris and Deanna Rowan for their great customer service. When we needed to contact them for any reason they were easy to get a hold of. Thanks so much you guys and looking forward to spending the night at Buffalo Bill’s house next year.”

“I just cannot say enough about how amazing my stay was! We were a group of 4 that happened to stay during a snow storm. While we didn’t venture out, the property was taken care of promptly & it was comforting to know we could get out if we needed to. Luckily we didn’t encounter any creeps who needed help getting a sofa into their van. As far as cleanliness goes: it’s an old house. You’d expect some dust. Maybe a couple of cobwebs in a dark corner…..nope! The house was spotless! Also, I didn’t realize how big the house actually is. We had plenty of space – but not just space – every room is full of spooky charm & incredible artwork. Many etsy purchases were made during our trip. There are too many highlights to mention but here are a few: comfortable beds, easy to navigate kitchen, the basement, the attic game room, the cozy living room & I’m sure the outside stuff is amazing as well. I can’t wait to plan a trip for when the weather gets warmer. Oh and the house rules/instructions were very thorough & easy to understand. I’m a spooky destination junkie & I’ve been to a lot of them. Watching that scene in Silence of the Lambs just feet from where it was filmed is definitely one of my top spooky destination memories. I cannot recommend this place enough & I cannot wait to come back. My only regret is not staying longer.”

Thank you for a truly amazing getaway!

“Absolutely loved our stay at Buffalo Bill’s house! You can tell so much care went into making the place perfect, from the artwork to the little lotions to the basement, we were always discovering something new! The house itself is amazing, lots of space, the bedrooms were big and everything was very comfortable! Loved that they have an arcade and a huge DVD collection! We spent a lot of time playing the arcade games and pool, as well as watching movies and recreating scenes from Silence of the Lambs lol! We didn’t want to leave even to get food, so got takeout delivered lol. It was also fun to explore the property. If it was warmer, we would have definitely had a fire, or breakfast outside in the gazebo! Hope to come back with more friends and fam soon!”

“I had high expectations for Buffalo Bills House and let me tell you THEY WERE SURPASSED! I feel so incredibly lucky to have stayed here. From the moment I got to the property I just knew it was going to be amazing. The property manager worked with me when I set the alarm off. I was scared I had set something off and the cops would come. They reassured me and let me know I can reach them anytime for anything. I can’t even begin to describe the inside of the house. Every single detail was thought out and so well executed. One of my favorite things in the house was the life size Hannibal they had by the stairs! He scared me at first but I got to see him come alive. If you look closely at everything all of it relates back to Buffalo bill. The basement full of Buffalo Bills horrors was truly the best. Definitely my favorite room of the whole house! There are some really good surprises down there that I don’t want to spoil. You NEED to stay here so you can really get the full experience. I truly love and admire this house so much! I wish I could live here! I give it 1000/10, highly highly recommend. This has been an experience that I will NEVER EVER forget. Thank you so much to Buffalo Bills House and the great team that put this together. You won’t regret your very precious stay here!”
