Winter wonderland!

  • 5 of 5

We visited before Christmas for a ski getaway. There was so much snow it was a real Winter Wonderland! The property was beautiful with so many trees covered in snow. It was great to be under one roof in such a spacious home. We really enjoyed coming back to have hot chocolate after skiing, sitting by the Fireplace and watching the new snow fall.

It was conveniently located near Holiday Valley and the town. Ellicottville is especially charming before Christmas and we really enjoyed all the town had to offer as well as this picturesque property.

Great Retreat for Family & Friends together

Great Retreat for Family & Friends to together

Dates Oct 8-10

We visited for Canadian Thanksgiving and it was a beautiful time of year with all of the leaves changing. We really enjoyed our stay and it was a great retreat for our family and friends to get together and celebrate together. We travelled from different parts of Ontario and it was a convenient place for us to meet.

The kitchen is very large with plenty of seating not only in the kitchen but another table in the adjacent room. This was perfect for our thanksgiving meal having everyone able to sit together. Having two sinks and a dishwasher also made it easy for cleanup. There is ton’s of counter space, which made it easy to prep lots of food.

The Chalet is much larger than it appears in the photos and we really were pleasantly surprised by all of the unique aspects that make this place special. It is very cozy with the multiple fireplaces.

Our favorite place to sit and enjoy the view was on the upstairs terrace that overlooks the property. We really enjoyed the privacy that the property has with all of the beautiful trees surrounding.

The property is located close to town and Holiday Valley and we spent some time browsing the stores in Ellicottville which was nice. We also travelled to the Casino, which was fun for everyone and we ate at the Buffett which had tons of food.

Overall we were exceptionally pleased with our trip and our stay. The owner was always accessible and very pleasant to deal with when we were planning and arranging our visit. The only thing I would have changed is that we could have stayed longer. I would highly recommend and we are already planning when to return.

What an incredible experience!

  • 5 of 5

What more can I say about this incredible property?! It has everything you need on site including a large kitchen which we cooked many nights in. There is plenty of room to gather around and throughout the cottage. It is is also very convenient to go to Ellicottville, we really enjoyed some of the local restaurants an nightlife. The views are serene from everywhere in the cottage and the surrounding trees are beautiful. The cottage has all the amenities; washer and dryer, dishwasher, plus multiple fireplaces. I would highly recommend this cottage and property and can’t think of anywhere else our family would rather stay. It's our favorite trip every year and we can't wait to go back!

Nestled in the Trees

  • 4 of 5

Twelve of us (4 adults and 8 children ranging in ages from 12-22) spent the Family Day weekend at this beautiful chalet. While we were short a bed or two (kids not wanting to share doubles), there was certainly room for all of us to eat together and spend time reading in various parts of the house. The location is gorgeous, windows everywhere, from which we could look out at the falling snow in the woods. Two double kitchen sinks and a dishwasher made clean up easy. Plenty of hot water for everyone. There was a problem with getting the temperature even throughout the house (cold on the main floor, hot in the bedrooms). That is the only reason we give it a VERY GOOD versus an EXCELLENT. Close to the ski hill and the town but secluded for privacy. No cell service but excellent wireless. Definitely recommended.

4 night stay

  • 4 of 5

This cozy chalet is as described - and the surroundings are beautiful. It was clean, and felt very family friendly. We had 4 adults and 5 children. The room heaters/fireplaces were wonderful - especially the one in the kitchen. With no washer /dryer, we warmed up our wet clothes with them, too. It snowed every day and it really made the trip!! The property was scenic and fun to hike with all the snow. We skied and went tubing at Holiday Valley - both great. Shopping and eating in town at the EBC and Dina's (for breakfast). At the home: no washer/dryer, no cell signal for phones (has land line), no Wi Fi. We had hot water but it was inconsistent. The owner was always helpful and called to make sure we had everything we needed. We would recommend it.

Great for big families/groups, with some caveats

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family (six adults and four kids ages 2 - 15) just returned from a fun three-night Thanksgiving stay at this property about 5-10 minutes from downtown Ellicottville, NY. The photos on this site are accurate depictions of the home, but there aren't enough photos here to do justice to the many nooks and seating areas around the house. It was all these different rooms and seating areas (plus the three bathrooms) that made the house feel very spacious for our whole group. The kitchen was the highlight of the house, with lots of room and seating at the table for 10, plus a couple stools for the central island. House was clean

We had fun hiking around the property, which has steep wooded slopes and several small ponds. It felt very remote, in a good way (quiet, stars, privacy, etc.). We also went hiking in the gorgeous nearby Allegheny State Park and enjoyed the holiday festivities in the quaint Ellicottville town center.

The owner was very nice and casual when working out the arrangements, and there was a local caretaker who answered our questions while there at the chalet.

Now, the downsides: (1) One of the main drawbacks is that there is no washer/dryer on site. This might not be a big deal if you're traveling with all adults, but it's crucial with kids; we really missed having a washer/dryer to do clothes, towels, etc. (2) We didn't consistently have hot water for washing dishes, taking showers, etc., despite what looked like a very nice and new instant water heater; not sure what the problem was there. (3) we had a hard time regulating the temperature upstairs in the bedrooms; I assume this is user error but I wish the instructions for heating the place were written out and conveniently placed on our arrival.
