About Jeff Lindhurst

This family estate is now managed by my brother and I. As kids we would come to this family farm and work the fields, take care of the animals and love the outdoors. With 15 years of upgrades, this restored farm home is yours to enjoy for some quiet time in the country, but near skiing, hunting, fishing and more.

Jeff Lindhurst purchased this house in 1908

Why Jeff Lindhurst chose Little Valley

You will enjoy a 19th century restored home passed down through 4 generations. Our Great Grandfather purchased the property in the 1908, where it was a prosperous farm for nearly 100 years. With near proximity to Holiday Valley and Holimont in Ellicottville, NY, the home was converted to a B&B 15 years ago. Now this home is fully available for your family with up to 6 bedrooms and 5 baths. Includes unique features such as the stone fireplace our grandfather built. Sits near Mansfield creek where you can fish for an afternoon or take a hike amongst the 200 acres of timber, pasture and scenic paths.

What makes this house unique

Convienently located near holiday valley for skiiing, golf and snowboarding. Country snomobile trail (S35) is 200 yards from the house. . Bring your own snomobiles and jump on the trails in seconds. In the warmer climate, you'll enjoy fishing, hiking or hunting on our nearly 200 acres of wooded hills. Golfing and the Mountain Coaster is only 10 minutes away at Holiday Valley Resort

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have thoroughly enjoyed our weekend visit to Ellicottville. The Fall Festival was great fun as was the chair lift up to Holiday Valley. We sat at the top enjoying the warm sunshine and beautiful fall colors and were treated to live music and cold beer. What more could we ask for? The house is comfortable and our children (age 5 and 3) enjoyed the foosball table and battleship.

With Thanks and best wishes,

Perfect Family Reunion Location

  • 5 of 5

My family spent the weekend here celebrating my parents 60th wedding anniversary. The home was exactly as described. Very well equipped kitchen, clean, nicely decorated and large enough for our family to be close and yet also have space to spread out when needed. The weather was good so we spent time outside, had a nice fire, went in the hot tub and played plenty of board games (one of the grandkids favorite activities). We brought many of our own but loved playing some of the classics at the house - like Life, Scrabble, Monopoly, etc.

It is in a rural area and the nearest neighbors can't really be seen from the house or barely even the street. It was easy to find. It is close to Ellicottville but we did not go in - the road is under construction and had a long detour but that wasn't the point of our visit anyway.

Really terrific place for a large family gathering and I would highly recommend it.

Comfortable and stress free vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This house was beautiful with plenty of space for everyone! We were equipped with everything we needed and from minute one the owners were extremely pleasant and accommodating. This was my first Home Away experience and it was perfect. Well worth the money and I would stay at this property again and again! I will certainly share my experience with all my friends.

Girls Weekend November 2016!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the weekend at Creekside! It was perfect and met our needs as expected! We had 14 ladies only! 4 generations age range 8 - 86.. We all slept comfortably, enjoyed the hot tub, campfire, games and wine, which is exactly what we set out to do! We cooked dinner in both nights and were able to find everything we needed. Plenty of cookware, dishes and wine glasses. E-Ville is a short 10 minute ride away, and slopes about 15! A nice touch is the bottled water that is provided! Loved that it is in the country, we were noisy by out campfire with no neighbors to complain! The house is pretty much exactly as pictured, and we did find that elusive blender!

Loved the stay

  • 5 of 5

We found the house to be very nice for our stay. It accommodated all 15 of us and we had plenty of space. The layout of the house was accurate with what was showed on the website. There are plenty of bathrooms and bedrooms for everyone. We were unable to locate a blender so if you need one we suggest bringing yours from home. One thing we noticed there was some black ants in the upstairs room to the left of the staircase in the front of the house. Other than that the house was cleaned. We are from Florida so our A/C is usually on, however, with this house not having that option the weather was perfect that it was not needed. The owners were great and did provide good communication back and forth with us. We would recommend this property to friends.

We loved how the place was stocked with board games for entertainment, it was nice to play the games as a family. (even the little ones aged 3-7 played games) No one bothered watching much television at all. All the brochures provided information for us to familiarize ourselves with the area. Seeing the Amish go down the road was a neat experience for us to see as well. The kids enjoyed Holiday Valley and the Sky High adventures. We walked in the back to find the creek and found a bridge that was blocked off with a sign stating no trespassing so that threw us off (since there is a picture of the bridge and creek on the site).
