Welcome to the website of the 'Purple Palace' early 1800's victorian home situated in picturesque Ellicottville, NY, a charming town just 51 miles south of Buffalo, New York. Ellicottville was voted the Best Ski Resort Town between New England and the Rockies by Ski Magazine.
Location, Location, Location...This home is the closest rental property to the downtown four corners (Washington and Jefferson). It is the perfect place for your ski vacation, golf vacation, seminar, retreat or quiet, romantic getaway. Stay in one of the two units (or rent multiple units for really large groups).
Independence (sleeps 3) Mardi Gras (sleeps 15)
Or for the special weekend for groups up to 25 there is additional availability (4.5 bathroom, 7 bedrooms and a loft).
Just a few steps to downtown and less than 1 mile to both Holiday Valley Ski and Golf resort and Holimont ski resort. This stately Victorian home is set amidst an enclave of mature trees and is situated beside the 'Oasis Day Spa'. It has recently upgraded appliances along with Wi-Fi throughout the home.
It is in a fabulous winter/summer resort town. After skiing all day, take a break and get to know the village's shops, many fine restaurants, and cultural centers. Relax on the deck and watch the cars go by or go for a short stroll and walk the streets of downtown Ellicottville. Enjoy having a pint at the 'Gin Mill', off to 'Tip's Up' for dinner and then of course go dancing the night away at 'Balloons'. Experience the charm and unhurried lifestyle of Ellicottville any time of year. The area is renowned for its hiking and there are many miles of mountain bike trails.
Guests that rent 'Mardi Gras' have the main portion of the large Victorian home. Sleeping accomodations for 15 (4 bedrooms and 2 pull out couches), three common area rooms for socializing, including a ping pong table, large screen TV, full kitchen, large dining area, large outdoor covered deck and 2 1/2 newly renovated full bathrooms. It is a lot of home to enjoy. If your group is larger than 15, let me know and I can open it up to suit up to 25 people with the added rooms available.
For that weekend away for just the two of you (or family of three) stopping by, then 'Independance' will suit your needs. It sleeps three with a kitchenette, newly renovated full bath and a cozy fireplace.
