Couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic weekend away in every respect. This rental was about as unique as it gets, with artistic and punny decor covering almost every inch. Beautiful skylights and open space upstairs. Can't beat the location, with ample parking.

I think oftentimes people become concerned when they see that owners of any rental live on-site - but this actually made our stay even better. Franke and Susi are such kind and wonderful individuals and will give you either as much privacy or support as you'd like. It was such a pleasure meeting them and staying in their gorgeous and entertaining space. We will definitely be going back soon and I would highly recommend that you check it out!

Great place, better people! Had a blast

  • 5 of 5

Frank and Susi couldn't have been cooler! We were well taken care of from the second we arrived! It's not just a rental, we made two great new friends as well. We will most definitely return to looney tunes! Thank you both for a wonderful 4 days!

Fun place, great location and hosts

  • 5 of 5

Great spot for an extended family getaway. Walking distance to EBC and Washington street shops. 5 minute ride to the slopes. Plenty of space for our crew with comfortable beds & pillows. Franke and Susi are great hosts and were very flexible with our arrival and departure. The smoked brisket and banana bread were unexpected treats. Definitely planning to go back in the summer to take advantage of the outdoor spaces.

Unique and inviting!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for the Ellicottville Lacrosse Festival. Chose Looney Rooms because it looked and sounded offbeat and unusual, and it did not disappoint. The accommodations and the yard are so over the top fantastic to be reason enough to stay here. However, its the owners that truly made our trip special. They are the nicest, friendliest, most open and inviting people you will ever meet, and I say that without exaggeration. We had planned to go out with friends into town for dinner and drinks but ended up hanging out with the owners for 5-6 hours instead. What other VRBO owners offer to go shopping for you if you need anything, or offer to take you into town or pick you up if you have been drinking, regardless of the time. What other VRBO owners would spend time with your child, really listening to them and encourage them to pursue their passions in life. It may sound strange but it was a truly special weekend. We truly felt that when we left we were leaving family and close friends.

I could go on and on about how great our stay was. If you are open to staying at unique places and meeting new, unique, and special people, book your stay now. We will without a doubt be back to visit our new friends.

Amazingly different!

  • 5 of 5

Eclectic, unique, intriguing, fascinating, one-of-a-kind, spectacular...and these are just the owners Frankie and Suzie... haven't even started describing the house yet! But seriously If your even looking at this listing don't bother looking at other ones and just book it you won't regret it I promise you! Couple tidbits of advice bring CDs because they have an amazing sound system that you can put your CDs into or choose from their huge variety! If you're going for a bachelorette or something like that don't even bother bringing decorations (even penis confetti) you don't need it! The house has so many intriguing things around it you will discover a new piece every day! Love the different seating areas especially the covered porch and the fire pit! Just book...just do it!
