Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Annette!

Sorry for the late reply we got home pretty late on Sunday night.

We had an absolute blast in your wonderful cottage! :) We arrived Friday around 1 and skied all day and then went to the cottage for a large pizza extravaganza followed by a hot tub, music, dancing, pool games and to finish off the night we dug out the fire pit and have a great time around the flames! Saturday we woke up early for a good healthy breakfast and headed off to the slopes! We spent the day at the hill skiing, riding on the mountain roaster and at the bar with some great music from a local band. Then we headed back for another delicious dinner made in your well equipped kitchen! Sunday we made a feast in the morning and had a quick hot tub to relax one last night. What a beautiful view from the hot tub! What a great feature and addition to the cottage. We hit the slopes again all day Sunday as well and rented the picnic area on Mistletoe. We had a wonderful BBQ. If you have never tried that it is great! You call the customer service at Holiday Valley and ask to have a picnic on Mistletoe and give them the times you wish to be there. Then in the morning you go to the maintenance building and ask them to please drive your food, coals and drinks up for the time requested. It was a blast!

We absolutely enjoyed the entire weekend, your beautiful remote place and of course the challenge of trying to count how many roosters there were! :D

Thank you for all the tips, instructions and suggestions! We appreciate all the information and how well planned out you are!

Thank you so much! We would love to return!

Hilary and Group!

Family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

The Roosters Den was perfect for our family Christmas gathering. There were 13 of us(6 adults and 7 kids ages 11 to 17) and it felt like we had plenty of room to spare. The layout and the facility was ideal for the activities we enjoyed. The owners were responsive to any inquiries we made. If schedules permit the whole family will definitely be back for another stay at the Roosters Den next year.

Amazing rental property!

  • 5 of 5

This property over exceeded my expectations! I had such an easy and positive experience. We had a group of about 9 and there was plenty of room left over. The location was convenient yet private, which was perfect. I had great communication from Annette and Dave from the time of booking until we left the house. I would highly recommend this property with no hesitations!

Entertaining stay away

  • 5 of 5

We went here for a weekend family get together. The town does not have much for the kids to do but this house saved us! It was a very comfortable stay and literally had enough to help us entertain 6 kids ranging from 7-14 years of age. I loved how spaced out all the bedrooms too. Great stay. Would rent this place again.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! I used this home to host a bachelorette party for my best friend. We had a lot planned and certainly enjoyed our time spent in the village of Ellicottville, but the house was hands down what made the trip. It had everything we could have asked for between the enormous deck, the grill, pool table, piano, and the hot tub. It was spacious and lovely inside with excellent lighting. The home was very clean and they provided plenty of towels and sheets for all of us. And the owners were very easy and pleasant to work with. I highly recommend this property for your stay-- you will certainly enjoy!!

Thanks for everything,

Guys weekend

  • 5 of 5

We went up for a long weekend before my buddies wedding for a guy’s weekend away. The house exceeded expectations, especially for 12 people. We didn’t have to bring a thing besides food and drinks. Everything was there from firewood to towels and shampoo in the bathrooms. The large deck and hot tub were perfect for hanging out outside and enjoying sun. Dave and Annette were a pleasure to work with. We will definitely be visiting the Roosters Den again the future.
