Great Valley house description

In the country, yet close to everything...Holiday Valley skiing, Seneca Allegheny Casino, horse accommodations!

The land is comprised of open meadows overlooking the mountains, a 1 acre pond and plenty of hills for hiking. The house is a three bedroom, 1-1/2 bath ranch with plenty of space for eight + sleeper sofa. It has two large decks with plenty of furniture and a grill. It comes fully furnished; in fact, all you need to bring is your clothes and your horse, if you wish.

There are plenty of things to do, summer and winter, without leaving Alden's Acres: hiking, short horse rides, fishing, hunting, picture taking, etc. Less than 10 miles from: skiing at Holiday Valley, golfing, swimming or shopping in Ellicottville, gambling at the new Seneca Allegheny Casino, hiking or horseback riding at the Allegheny State Park. 35 min. from Lake Chautauqua's southern tier.
