About the property

Upscale Village Home for the more sophisticated crowd desiring luxury & comfort!

Welcome to your Home Away from Home!!

Upscale Village Home for the more sophisticated crowd desiring luxury & the creature comforts of home!

Palmer Place is perfect for families or groups looking for their own home away from home for vacation or just to escape the hustle and bustle of normal life! The location is downtown - only a minute's walk from the town square. Your car will spend most of its time parked in the driveway! The home is located right between Holiday Valley & Holimont Ski resorts - less than a mile to both!

Why Palmer Place?

Location. Luxury. Amenities. Comfort. Fun!

You'll find everything you need at Palmer Place and little conveniences from home. In the kitchen, all cooking essentials are accounted for as well as a full coffee pot and a Keurig, microwave and a toaster oven, spices and even cream and sugar in case you wake up that first morning and realize you forgot! Each bathroom has a hair dryer and each shower has shampoo, conditioner and body wash. There is an iron, board and spray starch as well as a laundry room with stain remover (just in case). It's our home away from home - so we have everything there that we need at home! And yes- there is cable (222 channels including music channels) and Wi-Fi... as well as BlueRay player, and even a Wii system!

NEW in 2015!

- Sheets & bedding… and the beds are covered in a 4' thick memory foam topper (except twin and pull-outs).

- Living Room Couches

- Dining Room and Kitchen Dining tables and chairs, and bar chairs

- In the Kitchen you'll find many new items - from the dishwasher to the silverware, knife block, towels, many accessories, new bar in the side room, etc.

- New Gas Grill on the back patio

- Flat Screen TV in the Garage Game Room

Favorite Features:

- The front two bedrooms in the main house have their own bathrooms- perfect for two couples wanting the privacy of having your own bathroom!

- The third bath has an amazing massage cycle - must try even if you stay in the rooms with bathrooms!

- The suites above the garage are perfect for a romantic getaway and feel very spacious with tall ceilings, Jacuzzi tubs and walk-out balconies with Adirondack chairs. These provide a cozy little getaway and are nicer than a hotel room but the amenities include a dining table for two, small fridge and coffee station in each room.

- There is a 'Bar Room' off the kitchen which has a granite top bar with built-in wine rack for your bar essentials! Wine and can openers are in the drawers! The tiled floor is perfect for coolers and extra storage

- The large garage has been converted into a Game Room with a bar! We added two family treasures - a ping pong table and a restored bumper pool table... as well as many board games, etc. There is a new Flat Screen TV on the wall - it is a large gathering space for the whole group!

About Deb & Dan Palmer

This was a dream of ours! We became engaged in Ellicottville on a romantic summer getaway weekend and were married at the Holy Name of Mary Catholic Church in Ellicottville the following Spring. It has been our hope and dream to buy a home and eventually retire in Ellicottville some day.

Deb & Dan Palmer purchased this house in 2014

Why Deb & Dan Palmer chose Chautauqua-Allegheny

We passed this home the weekend we got married and both were in awe. To our surprise - it was for sale years later when we were on an anniversary trip! We weren't ready to retire- but it was a sign we couldn't ignore! The house is right downtown - which is perfect, perfect, perfect! The house is huge- lots of room for extended families. That was important to us because it's so much fun when you're with your family or a large group and we always had difficulty finding places to rent that were big enough to accommodate us!! We are sharing our home with other families in hopes they will make the same memories we have made in Ellicottville through our years of renting here! There's a book for our guests to write in and we are looking forward to reading it each year!

What makes this house unique

The location is perfect - once you stay there you'll never want to stay anywhere but downtown again! Walking to grab breakfast or to go to the Grocery Store or to shop is sooo nice.... and as a group - it's great because you don't have to worry about driving or leaving and returning at the same time. Everyone can walk to town or home when they're ready. It's very convenient! We can't say enough about the house - it is a mix of old Victorian with the modern comforts we enjoy. We hope you feel the same way!

Lovely Home & Close to Downtown!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Palmer Place several times while in Ellicottville. It is a lovely, rambling house that can fit a great deal of people comfortably (we've had anywhere from 6-12 in our group). There is a game room in the garage, which is an added bonus and often leads to a lot of fun. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the house overall is charming. There are also two guest suites above the garage, which can offer a greater level of seclusion, even with a group! One of the best perks is that it is within walking distance of downtown Ellicottville. It's also just a short drive to the ski slopes. All in all a wonderful place to make memories!

Great Stay even without snow!

  • 5 of 5

We had four families and children stay at the Palmer house the week after Christmas. We usually stay at the Holiday Valley, but this year we decided not to and we are so glad we did. There was no snow, but we still found plenty to do. The kids played many games of hide n seek in the massive house and we all enjoyed a few round robin ping pong tournaments. Everyone enjoyed the very short walk to town to enjoy shopping and dining. We even enjoyed a night at the brand new bowling alley. The house has everything you could need for a large group and there were plenty of places to sneak off and enjoy a book and cup of tea. Overall, we had a great stay and we can't wait to call the Palmer House home for another family trip.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review! We're sad there was no snow - but it sounds like you made the most of it with many other adventures and extra use of the Game Room - which is great! It truly means so much to us that Palmer Place felt like home to you and we are excited that you are already planning your return trip!

Excellent getaway even for non-skiiers!

  • 5 of 5

We recently enjoyed a girls getaway weekend at this lovely home. It couldn't have been better stocked with the latest kitchen gadgets, amenities, bedding, etc. The home is immaculately kept. The location was situated so close to the downtown area - excellent shopping in trendy boutiques, and also The Salt Cave, which is a wonderful spa-like oasis for massages, and the halotherapy spa.The two suites above the garage were like separate hotel rooms - complete with refrigerators and coffee pots.There are many delightful restaurants within walking distance. The huge flat screen TV in the main living area was awesome for watching football. Not a negative thing to say about this place!

Excellent place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This victorian home is beautiful. It is the combination of historical with modern benefits. The house is perfectly located for skiing, shopping and dining. We had 4 families with children and never felt crowded. We enjoyed skiing but several of us didn't ski and still found plenty to do shopping and taking advantage of the local spa's. The Salt Cav was a lot of fun too which is several doors down.

Another nice advantage is the short walk into town. This came in very handy.

We loved this house and will highly recommend.

Fun multi-family ski trip over New Years!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location (EASY walk to downtown EVL) and very close to Tops grocery and Holimont and Holiday Valley slopes. Lots of room and plenty of bathrooms so families don't have to share. Completely modern, updated and stainless kitchen with plenty of seating space. All new utensils, appliances, coffee pots, new gas grill, wifi, etc. We fit 3 families with 7 total kids easily. Brand new TV allowed us to cheer OSU to victory in Sugar Bowl! Lots of ping pong games and room for ski / boot store in garage game room. We had a great stay -- owner easy to work with and quick on communications.

Would be perfect for families or couples that wanted to enjoy bars / restaurants in EVL.

Charming and lots of space

  • 5 of 5

There were 17 of us staying at the Palmer place, plenty of room for everyone! Tons of bathrooms and when they say the kitchen is fully stocked, it really is. Very comfy beds and the location is awesome. A couple minutes walk and you're in the heart of Ellicottville. Lots of character and charm inside and out, it's a gem!
