About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-14)

Paradise Found best describes the Alpine Wilderness Lodge


what we enjoy most about the cabin is relaxing on the 60 ft deck that over looks the pond at the end of a wonderful day ! We take time to reflect on the nature hiking trails we explored & the wildlife we encountered on our adventures walks during the day .But what keeps us coming back to the cabin is the beautiful views surrounding the property just a reminder of our creator in all his majesty.

With the option to catch dinner in town (Ellicottville) or just hang out and enjoy a B Q we never tire of the fresh air and plenty of sunshine as we enjoy a late dinner setting on the deck once again. Time seems to stand still at the Lodge as wonderful memories are made memories that last a life time Some of our guests have retuned for there 15 year and are now bring back 2nd generation of family with them.

The Lodge Truely a place to relax and enjoy family & friends come stay a while and see what we mean- you're always welcome.

Great multi family ski weekend

  • 4 of 5

We were 3 families with 8 teenagers and the big living room and long dining room table were perfect for board games and cards. Great get away from technology and lots of quality family time. Easy drive to ski hill

lodge offered comfortable accommodation for all 14 of us with 5 boys in the living room. Only thing missing was a working coffee maker. We had a great weekend Margie was quick to reply to our booking and very responsive and welcoming. Nice touch and welcome card and bottle of wine. No hesitation recommending

Delightful family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We loved the cabin! My mom, adult siblings, and our children all went for the week. The cabin was comfortable and we loved the pond and fire pit. It is so peaceful and quiet and beautiful there! The kids loved playing and running, and so did the dogs. We played lots of board games and movie nights too. There were tons of blankets, and plenty of towels (unless you're using a new one every day, which we didn't). One thing- if you don't like a hard bed, make sure to bring an air mattress or mattress pad or something. A couple of us ended up setting up air mattresses after the first couple nights. (but we still managed to fit everyone comfortably)

The Alpine wilderness lodge has been a life changing experience. I am so happy to be able to take my young children out there, they love it. We will be renting again as they get older. It's very comfortable. A perfect cozy get away!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Alpine Wilderness Lodge many times over the last 10 years or so! Alpine Wilderness Lodge has a cozy, homey feel to it and is a great place to gather with family and friends. It offers lots of comfortable sleeping arrangements and a nice size kitchen to cook and hang out in. It is in close enough proximity to Ellicottville, NY to ski, shop, eat and enjoy the nightlife, but far enough away where you get that wilderness, zen feel. There is a huge pond to fish in, and lots of land to enjoy your outdoor hobbies on. Also, the owners are amazing and very attentive to their guests!

Wonderful Experience A+ Location

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I needed a spring adventure getaway. The location has to be one of the most beautiful places we have traveled to in the Ellicottville area. So much to take in I wish we should have stayed a full week. The Alpine Wilderness Lodge comfortably accommodated my party of 10. We spend the whole weekend hiking, sight seeing, roasting marshmallows and laughing.

I highly recommend anybody that enjoys a little adventure and some R&R to visit.

Southern Tier Charm & Natural Beauty

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have used the Lodge for multiple getaways now the location is still one of our favorite Southern Tier getaways. The property is only a 5-10 minute drive from the Ski Slopes of Ellicottville NY, which is nice because we like to play hard and retreat to the solace of the Lodge after a long winter day. Summers are excellent for hiking, sight seeing, fishing, four-wheeling, dirt biking and mountain bike riding, I recommend taking in both the cold and warm months.

The owners are very hospitable and have grounds keepers located less than a mile from the lodge in case anything is ever needed. They have updated a lot over the years; new furniture, hardware, kitchenware, LED TV & Dish Network great for the kids at night.

I have so many priceless memories, the Lodge has been perfect for my family, we will return for years to come.
