Great weekend

  • 5 of 5

Can't beat a weekend away in ellicottville. This house is a little dated, but the owners are first class. We had a mild problem and owners took care of things immediately. Thank you, we had a great time.

The house was quite dated and hot tub broken

  • 3 of 5

Although the house had ample space and beds for our two families, it was very old and dated. And a 10 min drive from the hills. There were minimal supplies like soap and toilet paper - no bath or hand soap or shampoo and only about 3 rolls of TP for 8 people for 3 days. Definitely no extras! Lots of dish soap and room deodorizer a! Didn't use the laundry, although it looked newish. Generally, the cleanliness was not great - e.g. broom left and dirt swept into corner of foyer, inside of dishwasher was badly stained yellow and Fridge had to be wiped down inside. We were especially disappointed that the hot tub was not working. The reason we booked this place was for the hot tub after skiing. The phone didn't connect either. And no cell service. So once we got the wifi we emailed the owners, who did call us back. They promised to send a repair guy to fix the hot tub on Saturday, then again in Sunday. No one ever showed up and we had no hot tub all weekend. About two weeks after we got home I did get a refund for about $100. And the owners assured us they'd repaired the hot tub and they do have weekly service. The place was inexpensive compared to many in Eville, but you get what you pay for...and sometimes not even that.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry that this group did not find our property up to their standards. We try very hard to provide an enjoyable stay for all of our guests. They called upon their arrival with two concerns. The land line did not work, nor did the hot tub. The landline issue was corrected within a few minutes. The hot tub not working proved to be a more difficult challenge. Our hot tub is professionally serviced every Wednesday, and was working fine two days prior to their arrival. As they arrived on Friday evening, I assured them I would contact the hot tub company first thing Saturday morning. Which we did. We never promised we could get it fixed on the weekend, but said we would do our best. Which we did. We contacted several pool and spa companies around Western New York, but none could go up to service the tub until the middle of the following week. And this was conveyed, with our apologies, to our guests. (The hot tub repair required both a new pump and a new heating unit.) We certainly understand the frustration that exists when expected amenities are not available. We did our best to correct the situation for them, and when we couldn't, provided a refund that we felt was appropriate, and consistent with standards found in the vacation rental literature which we reviewed. That they were concerned about the cleanliness of the house caught us off guard. We have had 15 other group of guests stay at this property during the current ski season, and as you can see from our other reviews, the cleanliness of the home has never been a concern. We have a wonderful cleaning outfit, thought to be one the best, and most reliable in Ellicottville. We certainly value all of our guests and will continue to do our best to provide them with an enjoyable vacation. We appreciate the input we receive from our guests, and are truly sorry that sometimes events beyond our control have a negative impact on their experience.

Great House for a stay with the dogs....

  • 4 of 5

My wife, two dogs, and three other couples were able to stay at this house feb 9th thru the 12th. We absolutely enjoyed ourselves with each couple having their own bedroom and a fantastic living/dining room setup that allowed for all of us to have meals together. The best part was being able to bring the dogs to enjoy the stay with us and the privacy of the house and surrounding area. Holiday valley ski resort is an easy 7 min drive. The hot tub was great and the place was clean with fresh linens and bath towels. This place is great for families and friends that want to stay near the mountains with their dogs on a friendly budget price. We will definitely stay here again.

Spacious Retreat Close to Ellicottville

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (6 adults, one toddler) rented this property and it worked out great. Well equipped, short drive to the hill, lots of room for up to 3 families. Recommend.

All we needed for a successful girls weekend getaway!

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and well-maintained, just a short drive to Ellicottville. The hot tub was in great working order. We had a very nice time.

Near Holiday Valley and amazing Hot tub!

  • 4 of 5

We actually stayed here Dec 29 2014 through the 2nd of January so we could Ski over New Years. There were between 6-10 of us at any time and plenty of space. The wood burner was great in the winter and plenty of wood was supplied in the grass. The house is a little off the beaten path and if the roads are bad, I would suggest 4WD. About 10-12 minutes from the resort which wasnt a big deal. Nice rooms, huge kitchen and the Hot Tub off the back deck was amazing. It made the house. The Bedrooms were OK. The downstairs one listed a queen or king, was actually just 2 Twin/fulls stuck next to each other with large sheets over them both. It worked, but was nothing special. It was nice to have the dogs with us and they seemed very happy. Everything worked, TV was decent although the TV's in the other rooms are in bad need of upgrades. Living room couches were comfy. Overall we enjoyed the place. Plenty big for a large group of people.
