Very comfortable and spacious
Rented this house for a large group ski trip. The house has plenty of space for everyone. Lots of sleeping space and multiple living rooms to relax. Just a short drive to town. Would recommend for large groups.
Thanks for the nice comments. I appreciate the business. Very happy you and your group enjoyed the property...
Not even a home, much less a chalet
This "newly remodeled chalet" is not any of those things. It appears to be a converted tool shed/garage that is now two apartments. The apartments are connected by an interior door that locks, so I guess the owner can rent them out separately. We (3 families) rented the entire place for a weekend, and were shocked at how little it felt like a home at all. It was more like a college-break flophouse. The three tiny bathrooms are separated and far away from all of the tiny bedrooms. Two of the bathrooms are weirdly side-by-side and open directly into the middle of the living room. Two of the bedrooms are in one apartment, three in the other. If you have small children, which we fortunately did not, there is no good sleeping configuration for adults and little ones. The furnishings are tired and worn out. There is no place to store your skis, wet boots, or other outdoor gear. The heating is as disjointed as the house; you will either be freezing or sweating, depending on the room you're in. The hot tub is in an attached shed, complete with a shed door. Forget any notion of enjoying the night sky during your hot tub outing! And finally, the photo showing the view of the ski slope, supposedly taken from a balcony, is utterly misleading. Perhaps a drone was flown off of the balcony several hundred yards and took this photo, or it was taken with an extremely powerful telephoto lens. The reality is that the view of the slopes is just a glimpse beyond many rooftops. We will return to this area for the skiing, but never to this place.

Big, spacious, and convienent.
Drew’s house was great. We had plenty of room for all guests and it is in a great location. I would definitely recommend to friends, family, and other VRBO users!
You and your group were a pleasure to work with. Also, very happy you enjoyed the new hot tub. Please come back and see us again.
Great view great accommodations great location!
We came with a large group for a 40th party. We had everything we needed to cook ,clean , eat and drink for the weekend. The unit was large and well equipped. The unit was very clean and had a great ski country feel to it. The deck had a beautiful view of the property and the hot tub was perfect to start or end your day in. All the guests were comfortable in their own sleeping quarters. The kitchen and great room were perfect for our whole group to congregate in and play games and eat. A must stay on your next trip to EVille!
For the kind words. Very happy the property worked out so well for you and your group. Hope to see you again soon....
Wonderful stay all around!
We stayed at this property once a few years ago and when we walked in for our second stay this year, I was very impressed at how well this chalet has been maintained over time. It still felt brand new! Everything is just as it's pictured online and the house is incredibly spacious (we had 20 adults and there was plenty of room!). The location of the chalet is great- you have beautiful views of the mountains and it's only a short drive into town. Drew was wonderful to work with and everything from booking to check out was a breeze. I would highly recommend staying at this chalet!
Claire...thank you so much for the kind words.
You were great to work with and I am happy your group had such a great time.
Please come back to visit us again.
Far exceeded our Expectations
Drew and his property staff were beyond a pleasure to deal with. We rented this Chalet for my sister's Bachlorette weekend. Upon our arrival we were blown away by the size and amount of sleeping space we had for 20 girls. Everything was very clean and organized and the grounds were beautiful. All amenities worked and we had no issues with anything on the property. Thee were detailed instructions on how to use/leave hot tub and we also had a business card of a local taxi service for when we wanted to drive in and out of Ellicottville. I Highly Recommend this rental. Thanks again Drew!!
Hey Lindsey...thanks for the very kind words. We enjoyed having your group as well. I'm so happy your special occasion was such a great experience for all of you. Please see us again.
