About Renee Brown

Hello. My name is Renee Brown. I am a mother of two grown daughters. I spent many years on the road as my oldest daughter played competitive softball. We spent a lot of time in hotels and eating out. This made me realize there had to be a better way to live while traveling. I began to dream about having a home with a garage apartment where families could spend time together in a more home-like atmosphere and not have to eat every meal out. My daughter then gave me a sign reading 'Enjoy the little things in life for someday you will realize they were the big things'. This really began to hit home as my daughter was in her senior year. Time just flies by and I really believe you have to take advantage of every moment with your family. We are all rushed and vacation time should be about winding down a little and really enjoying time together. Not driving each other crazy being piled up in a hotel room. In January of 2014, I was able to purchase the house that would become Buffalo Junction. It had really fallen into disrepair and me and my family spent the next 8 months working on it. We completely remodeled the interior and spruced up the exterior. My Dad has years of experience remodeling and was a huge help. I couldn't have done it without him. He went down in March as he needed a knee replacement so a lot of the work was left to me. I had no idea what I was doing, but worked hard and learned a lot! I think all the blood, sweat and tears that went into Buffalo Junction paid off. It is now a comfortable, inviting home that is perfect for families, couples or friends to stay while visiting Canyon. I hope you will consider us for your next trip. We will do everything we can to make your stay a great one.

Cozy house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one night only. After spending the day in Paloduro canyon driving around and hiking this was the perfect place to relax and spend the evening.

It is very close to the park and has a lot of places for eating and shopping. 35 eateries and 31 shops in Canyon.

We will definitely stay here in future when we get a chance.

Loved Buffalo Junction

  • 5 of 5

Buffalo Junction was everything we hoped it would be and more! The accommodations were just what we needed. It was a great meeting place for our family and friends that were in and out of town to attend the WTAMU fall show. Thank you again for a great alternative to having to stay in a hotel. I wish we would have known about this place when our daughter started school here 3 years ago!
