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.

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.

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

Been here multiple times. Very serene and restful. Large pond, fishing for the kids. Plenty of space inside and out, hiking trails, 15 minutes from a super market and restaurant if you wanted to get out for a night. Lots of activities in the area, depending on the season. Highly recommended!!

Beyond rustic

  • 2 of 5

We stayed here recently, and while we can appreciate rustic charm, this cabin went a little beyond rustic. Aside from no cell service (which we can live without) there is no landline available, either. The cabin is situated a 10 minute drive from anywhere, making it not only inconvenient (in the event, for example, you have members of your party arriving separately, in the dark, and needing directions), it is also unsafe (no way to reach cabin owners or emergency services if needed).

The cabin is spacious and accommodated eight of us, but it was very cluttered (Christmas decorations still up), in need of a good cleaning, and some updated amenities. The kitchen cupboards were littered with old pots, pans, and utensils, and the old, unkempt oven lost it's charm years ago.

As can happen when temperatures dip well below zero, the pipes in both showers froze, causing flooding during the first use. The owner was kind enough to attempt to fix things, but this meant frequent visits, and wet bath mats that we had to request be replaced (we couldn't wash and dry them ourselves, as there are no laundry facilities on-site). In the end, only one shower got back up and running, and nothing was offered for the inconvenience.

While not the most expensive place out there, The Lodge was also not the cheapest, and we felt that we paid too much. We will not be returning.

Owner's Response: Hi Lianne I do apologize for any trouble you have experiences at the lodge and would be happy to help arrange a chance for you to come back at another time to experience another stay free of charge We have rented the ALPINE WILDERNESS LODGE for over 20 years this is are 1st complaint so far . I know we did experience one of the coldest winters in over 60 years and many homes and in the area froze including our own home . Dan maintaince tried his best to unfreeze the pipes 3 times and even spent over 6 hrs under the cabin installing heat duck tape in sub 0 temps so that this will not happen again .As far as pots and pans go we have replaced them and were changing cleaning services due to this complaint . There is also a new cell tower going up on the back hill as we speak so cell phone service should not be a problem in the future . I would hope you will let us make this up to you we only wished we had more control over the weather I am sure your stay would have been more favorable .if you would like to visit a summer stay we can also arrange this as well regards alpine wilderness lodge
