Great house for big group - awesome location
My group of 15 rented the house for a get-away and we had a wonderful time. There were so many living spaces, we didn’t even use them all. There were ample bedrooms, and more importantly for a large group – so many bathrooms! The house had everything we needed including towels, sheets, silverware, cooking utensils, a great grill and hot tub.
The house was clean and the temperature was well-balanced. The landlord asked us to inform him if the new thermostat he just put in was working well for our visit, because he was having trouble with it being too hot upstairs. – it was just fine.
Drew was great to work with and made the renting process very easy. I would recommend this house.
This chalet is very clean and spacious. Location is perfect for Holimont and downtown Ellicottville
Drew, the owner is very helpful, kind and hospitable! 17 of us had a great time!
Thanks for the kind words. It was a pleasure hosting you and your family. All the best and hope to see you again soon.
Price Doesn't Match Experience
My family of four stayed at this house along with two other families of four for a ski weekend. From the moment we arrived to the house we were disappointed. The house smelled terrible (like vomit), the fixtures and furniture were extremely low budget and every room in the house showed signs that the house was not regularly maintained.
Our experience over the next two days reminded all of the adults of being back in college. For how much we paid to stay there, it was completely unacceptable. We suffered through the weekend with moldy bathrooms, OLD sheets and towels, dirty mattresses that in some cases were clearly over 30 years old (with no mattress covers on any of them), and sleepless nights. As other reviewers have commented, the heat in the different parts of the house is drastically different. During the day/evening we had to huddle together in one room on the main floor to stay warm and at night we had to keep the heat at 55 and open windows in every bedroom to attempt to stay cool.
Further evidence of the lack of maintenance for this home included lightbulbs out throughout the house, dirty kitchen cabinets and cupboards and broken window shades/blinds in nearly every room. The only nice bedroom in the house is the master. All of the others are a shell of a room with a bed and one outdated wall hanging on the wall. Yes, the carpets and fixtures have apparently been updated, but at bargain basement prices. Yes, the house has ample beds and family room space for everyone, but don’t expect to be comfortable.
At the end of our weekend I shared my concerns with Drew and requested a partial refund. He appeared concerned and said he would get back to me later that week and then didn’t. When I inquired with him he told me he would give me a partial refund but then never got back to me when I asked him how much and when I would receive it. The following week when I inquired again he stated he needed a relator friend to go through the house to review “the legitimacy of my concerns”. If he needed a friend to verify that the house was dirty and the mattresses were too old than I knew we had a problem that could not be fixed. He looked me up on the internet because he then made reference to the fact that he knew my profession, which to me made me very uncomfortable.
I have rented many private homes in Ellicottville (and beyond), and this one was by far the worst overall experience I have ever had.
I have reported this mean spirited review to VRBO and Homeaway from a renter who is way out of line and wanted to blackmail me for money. Very disappointing that someone would go this far to try and ruin my business for no real reason. All I can say is the review is not legitimate, however, we have adjusted and balanced the heating system because the upstairs got did get too warm on colder days. This was a true legitimate concern that we did need to address. I will let the other reviews speak for themselves.
Great spot for a big group with lots of kids!
It was great to hear you had such a great stay with us.... thanks for the kind words and taking care of the property so well.....hope to see you soon.
Great place for a ski trip and very accommodating owner.
Would highly recommend
Nice Place for 15 people
This house was adequate for our group of 8 adults and 7 kids between the ages of 11-15 for 4 nights. We liked the location to Holiday Valley, Holimont and Ellicottville for our ski get-away. Jodie provided great service both in person and over the phone and was able to figure out the hot tub within hours as it was not achieving the desired temperature on our first day. The house temperatures were difficult to keep comfortable, as the upstairs was too hot and the downstairs was too cold. The kitchen was adequate for our needs and had all the basic ware for preparing all our meals. The upstairs mattresses are basic, but adequate. Nothing special.
