The place to stay in Ellicottville!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a bachelorette weekend. Pictures don't do any justice, this house is absolutely incredible ! The artistic decor is so crazy and unique, nothing like you've ever seen! You could spend hours looking at it all. The house was clean and very spacious with the 10 of us and had everything we needed, including music with surround sound, fully stocked kitchen, games, even musical instruments! The house is less than a 5 minute walk to the heart of Ellicottville which was wonderful. Susi and Franke are amazing hosts, and two very special people. They were very welcoming, fun, friendly, and all of us enjoyed their company. This house is truly one of a kind, and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. All 10 of us highly recommend this property, and we cannot wait to come back!

If the owners weren't so nice and accommodating, I would be selfish and wouldn't write this review because I don't want everyone to find out about this place and start booking it all the time. This is our groups second year in a row staying here, and we won't ever stay anywhere else again. I'll simply say, the house is great and you won't be disappointed. Just make sure to leave an open weekend every winter for me and my group please.

Coolest Place and Hosts in the Village

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 14 were guests at Looney Rooms from Feb 3-5th. First I'll start off by saying that the pictures don't give this place justice, it is absolutely the coolest place we have ever stayed. I'm sure the next time we stay we will find things we missed this time. It's so eclectic and almost everything in the house has a story.

Susi and Frankie are incredible hosts! Other than the fantastic food they surprised us with we never knew they were there. They are fantastic people that are there 100% to make your stay and time in Ellicottville the best it can be.

The location is amazing. 2-3 minute walk to the Village and less than 5 to Holiday Valley.

Thanks Suzi and Frankie! We'll hopefully see you this summer and if not definitely next winter.

Holiday Friends Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was absolutely amazing. The pictures don't do the place justice - it is so spacious, we could have just never left and had a blast inside the whole time. The surround sound speakers were great. Everything that we needed was there - plus more: boardgames, music, ect.. Frankie and Susi were a great time to hang out with, they made a fire, and had countless recommendations on what and where we should do while we were in town. They are two great people. We cannot wait to come back here - we were a bunch of 24-26 year olds and honestly had such a blast, a huge reason being the environment and vibe of this place! Thank you again!

Thanks again Franke and Susi for a memorable weekend( and the tea bags)

Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Awesome!! Is how I would describe not only the accommodations but the owners as well! There is so much personality in this home. Fourteen of us stayed and did not feel crowded. The common area in the house is large enough for all. The outdoor areas are set up for rain or shine. The decor both inside and out is artistic and eclectic.The home is very clean and well stocked. Web site pictures are accurate but seeing is believing. A three minute walk will bring you to the heart of Ellicottville but the true heart of your stay will be at Looney Rooms with owners Frank and Susi. They are entertaining, knowledgeable of the area and just plain fun people to be around, we feel we made new friends. Don't be put out..if you so choose privacy they make themselves scarce. Our family loved our stay and already are planning for 2017. Thank you Frank and Susi for a great weekend!
