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 Ellicottville

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!

Beautiful fall weekend in Ellicottville!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was so perfect for our large group of family and friends!! The house was very clean and had everything we needed - a full kitchen, bedding, towels, and even shampoo/conditioner/body wash dispensers in each of the bathrooms, very convenient. The private bedrooms with bathrooms were great for all of the couples. We loved hanging out in both the kitchen and garage game room - playing bumper pool really brought us back to our college days. We lucked out with beautiful fall weather which made the short 5 minute walk to downtown very easy, day and night. The short drive to Holiday Valley for the aerial park and mountain coaster was definitely worth it. Deb was very accommodating - we would definitely rent this house again!!

Very nice stay, lovely place

  • 5 of 5

House is very spacious and well kept. It is an easy, quick walk to town and literally 5 minutes to Holiday Valley! We had a few small issues with the downstairs bathroom and the heat but it was extremely cold when we were there, so understandable. Deb was quick to respond and answer any questions. I would recommend!

Came to EVL for Fallfest, the home is in a perfect spot to walk to shops, dining, and of course all the Fallfest activities; especially the craft show. A short walk took us to the shuttle for Holiday Valley which meant no driving....YAY!!! The home is beautiful with plenty of space to watch Sunday Football...GO BILLS! Nights around the fire pit were awesome. Bumper pool was fun...thank you for leaving the rules! The kitchen is awesome and with plenty of amenities...we we not in short supply of anything. Deb was a pleasure to work with; she returned calls, answered emails and texts...can't say enough what a pleasure it was to work with her. This will be our first choice for our next trip to EVL.

Great house, perfect set up for a large family or group of friends

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely stay here again. Perfect location in walking distance to the restaurants and where the taste of ellicottville is held. Centrally located in Ellicottville which was convenient to get to the golf courses. Very nice outdoor set up for grilling, lawn games and having a bonfire. Large indoor common area for hanging out. Owners were happy to provide information about the area and answer any questions we had.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Deborah was so helpful and accommodating. We had 15 people and the house was perfect for our group. We really enjoyed the patio with the fire pit and the game room. Those who wanted something quieter, went the living room or front porch. The location cannot be beat! Easy walk into the village - what a great town! Great restaurants, shops and bars. Jazz Fest was fun too! We ventured to Holiday Valley and visited the cabana bar. Some of our group golfed and some did yoga on paddle boards. It's a great resort! All in all, I would highly recommend staying at the Palmer's!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review of our home. We love that the living space allows for both getting everyone in the same room and providing lots of options to sneak off and get some quiet time or have smaller groups spread out! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll return!

Beautiful home with every amenity imaginable!

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the pleasure of staying at the Palmer Place for the weekend. There were 10 adults, and 8 children-and the house could not have suited our needs any better. The house is spacious, in a great location, and has everything you need (high chair, kid dishes, spices, etc.). It is very clear that the owners of this magnificent house take pride in this home, and clearly make every effort to make their guests feel comfortable and welcome. We will definitely be back!!!
