About the Property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-24)

Location! Location! Location!

This fully-furnished, immaculate home is perfect for two to three families to enjoy with a finished basement (for the kids!) and a warm, inviting fireplace to warm yourselves after a full day of skiing. This house sits up on the hill across from the Holimont Ski Resort (a private resort on weekends, but open to public during the week) and you can actually watch the skiers glide down the slopes from the balcony,deck or porch of this 6 bedroom chalet.

Holimont is located in Ellicottville, a charming resort town just 51 miles south of Buffalo, New York. In addition to Holimont, the Holiday Valley Ski Resort is only minutes away, about two miles from the premises. After skiing all day, take a break and enjoy dinner and shopping in downtown Ellicottville, only a mile away, within walking distance, or head over to the Seneca Casino about 7 miles away for dinner, casino fun and live entertainment.

In the summertime, relax and enjoy yourself with golfing at Holiday Valley or challenge yourself at the the Sky High adventure zip-line course. Ride the mountain coaster, go hiking, mountain biking, or enjoy one of three swimming pools at Tamarack, the new condominium at Holiday Valley. If being outdoors is what you love, Letchworth State Park or Allegany State Park are just a short distance from Ellicottville. The surrounding hills are breathtaking and in the fall, the colorful foliage is so incredibly brilliant that it must be seen to be believed! A trip to Niagara Falls is only about 1 hour away... an easy day trip! You will truly feel revived after vacationing here!

Personal checks, cashier's checks, and PayPal are accepted. Rental rates apply to a maximum number of 18. There is a $10/person per day surcharge for anyone over that maximum. The minimum age requirement for renting this property is 25. Photocopy of a valid driver's license is required along with a signed Rental Agreement.

Car: Recommended

One of the area's newest attractions is the Sky High Adventure course located at Holiday Valley. This adventure course begins at the 'yellow' level and goes all the way to the challenging 'black diamond' level of climbing and zip lining. The Mountain Rollercoaster is also new as well. Fun for all!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: After being born and raised in Allegany, New York, and having our children born and raised there until teenagers, we bought our house so that we could have a place to 'come home' to after our company moved us to Texas. Both sides of our family are still in the area and after our parents passed away, we still wanted a place to come home for Christmas each year. We all come back...and now with an extended family! It's home away from home.

Why the Owner Chose Ellicottville, NY, USA:
We loved the fact that it has so many bedrooms and can keep families together rather than having to stay in separate rooms in a hotel. It's so much more comfortable and enjoyable and with our new kitchen addition, there is plenty of room to 'gather' together while cooking, eating, or just enjoying each others' company.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the view of the hills from our home. Whether you are sitting out on the deck or on either of the porches in the front, the scenery is awesome....the upper balcony is our 'slice of Heaven' and stargazing at night doesn't get any better!!!! With just being one mile from town, it is easy to stroll downtown for coffee in the morning, shop or dine in town, or simply sit on the park benches that line the main street and people watch. Ellicottville is a very charming place!
