Relax on the deck off the dining room with a drink and your loved ones while overlooking the mountain, wildlife and forest.

Extremely Comfortable and Clean home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over NYE, always a busy time up here. This house was fantastic, located in a private community you could literally hear the snow fall! great grounds for the kids to play, and super comfortable well appointed home. We will be back!

Peaceful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 adults just returned from a long weekend at this beautiful mountain home. The home was very clean and big enough for all of us to enjoy! The owners were very helpful and quickly responded to any questions we had! The area is very private and quiet. In the winter 4 wheel drive would be helpful. We would return to this home again.

Stayed here for 5 nights with my family and had a wonderful time. Very secluded and private. Beautiful view inside and out. Great place for a family and it has plenty of room.

Multiple room house

  • 4 of 5

We have rented this place for a few years now, and have enjoyed it every time. It has a large, well stocked kitchen (we bring our own knives and potato masher), and a beautiful ambiance. It has working washing and drying, making packing much easier. There is lots of bedding, (we were a bit short of blankets during the cold snap), and beds.

The owners are quick to respond if you have a question.

We had great skiing, in spite of the cold weekend.

It is not for those without winter tires (at this time of year).

Our Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned Sunday from our Yearly Family Getaway in Ellicottville . This hidden secret is awesome! Yes very secluded and peaceful. Lots of room and very clean, everything you need is there. The grandchildren had a blast on the little hill outside the front door, they brought their soccers and little snow boards and spent hours out there. Great sleeps for them at night!

Lisa and Mark are great to work with.. .

Linda - Christmas in Ellicotville

  • 4 of 5

We decided to spend 2014 family Christmas skiing in New York and this was a perfect Chalet for us. 6 adults and 2 youths gathered from across Canada and spent 5 nights. The skiing was disappointing due to lack of snow but we still managed to ski most days without any crowds. The chalet more than met our needs and expectations, we were thrilled to see a Christmas tree and decorations giving a very festive feel. It was a real treat to be able to open gifts, put the turkey in the oven, head to the ski slope and return hours later to delicious smells waffling through the chalet. The chalet had loads of space, well stocked kitchen, lots of games and a great atmosphere for a family get together. Would definitely recommend it and may even return when there is more snow!!
