Property description

Our custom-built home near the heart of Western New York's ski center, Ellicottville New York (a 2 minute drive away), is located on a fabulous country lot with two ponds and beautiful views on all sides. The close proximity to Holimont and Holiday Valley ski areas provides the opportunity to enjoy a private luxurious retreat in a pastural environment. Minutes away is Allegheny State Park, the casino in Salamanca, and charming Ellicottville with its restaurants, night-life and myriad of shops to while away the hours.

Rumor has it the best snowmobiling in Western New York, cross-country skiing and snow-shoe trails, are right outside the front door with miles to explore. The property can be enjoyed four-seasons with unbelievable biking for all levels of expertise.

The home itself accommodates three families comfortably. After a full-day of skiing, an apres-ski snow-shoe, and a sauna to complete the day, there is nothing to do but relax, relax, and relax, with a little libation thrown in for good measure. Watch the sunset as the day draws to a close and like us (and all our guests) you'll be hard pressed to remember the stress and worries from the day before.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Refundable Damage Deposit $500
  • Tax Rate 5%

Notes:

Our pricing for the week is designed to provide 7 nights for the same price as 4 nights (except for Christmas/New Years, MLK, Presidents, July 4th and Fall Festival weekends). ie. If you rent for 4 nights during the summer for $2000 (4 * $500) - you will have access to our house for 7 nights. If the math doesn't quite work on the rate schedule blame it on my computer logic skills.

50% deposit required at time of booking for winter rentals; remainder due one month before rental.

50% deposit required for summer rentals when owner requests confirmation and deposit due to another renter inquiring for the same time period.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We bought this amazing property in 1988 and finally, after almost twenty years, decided if we were ever going to enjoy it we should build a home sooner rather than later. Our dream is to retire here in another twenty years but until then we enjoy this spot more than anywhere else. As our family gets older, and as we both are involved in building our business ventures, we are not able to vacation as often as we would like. Sharing our home with families who will appreciate the warmth of the home, who will enjoy re-charging by sharing laughter with good friends and family, and re-energizing in an exquisite rural environment, makes it worth opening our doors to hopefully new friends who will say 'that was so worth getting away.' Our goal is to find like-minded guests who look forward to returning each year to their home away from home. We hope you are one of them.

Why the Owner Chose Ellicottville:
Ellicottville is simply about family. It's the place where we go that has no distractions. We can ski, snowboard, or snow-shoe as a family, share some laughs, watch MASH or Northern Exposure episodes, play games, or simply read a good book by the fire. It's where we connect as a family and find time to hear about what each of us care about. You cannot put a price tag on the importance of this part of our family time.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Even if we're not in the greatest mood when we drive to Ellicottville; within minutes of walking in the door we start a fire and the frustrations melt away. The peaceful scenery calms us in any season and we let nature work its magic. With a southern exposure and full floor to ceiling windows in a two-storey, vaulted ceiling great room, the sunshine lulls even the most active person to relax. The stream outside our door provides a calming sound as we fall asleep (OK perhaps not in the dead of winter when it's frozen) but all the elements of nature - sunshine streaming in the windows, snow blanketing the trees, rain on the metal roof, or thunder rolling through the hills are therapeutic. It's a beautiful part of the world, right in our backyard.
