About Lynette Gerstel

This chalet has been in my family since 1966 when my parents built it. They did a huge addition/gut to it in the late 1980's. Recently my family purchased it from my parents. Our family loves to ski at Holimont and we have many happy memories! It is the type of place, that when you walk in the front door, your shoulders relax and you know it is time to enjoy the people around you!

Lynette Gerstel purchased this chalet in 2013

Why Lynette Gerstel chose Chautauqua-Allegheny

Being able to ski in/ski out has been such a blessing to our family. Everyone can come and go as they please, lunch is always available in a crockpot to warm you up. It is also close to town. We have enjoyed taking care of the place and want others to enjoy it as well.

What makes this chalet unique

Hopefully you will find this place as relaxing and fun as we do. We try to make everything simple, fully equipped kitchen with extras. We even have a 3 pot crock pot that makes lunch a nice variety. Fire pit for time around the fire in the evening and nature all around you.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi there -



The kitchen had everything we needed and more - I definitely appreciated the paper plates and kitchen essentials (foil, plastic wrap...etc) that I forgot about. I did bring some Clorox wipes to ease clean-up but that's just my preference ;).



Bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect, nothing additional needed there.



We didn't end up using the outdoor fire pit because of the rainy conditions. We did fully utilize the living room fireplace though. My brother had some issues figuring out the correct direction for the flue handle but trial and error was just fine.



I did end up bringing stuff that I really didn't need (extra blankets, paper towels, dish soap...etc.) because I did not know you'd have everything available.



All-in-all, the place was great!



Thanks again!

Wonderful Place to Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding and got to stay in this beautiful home. It was well stocked, clean and fit my family, and both of my brothers families as well. The owner Lynette was very communicative, helpful and made sure our stay was perfect! If I am every in the Ellicottville area again I would rent this home.

Lovely quiet Chalet. Get lost in the wilderness

  • 4 of 5

Spent time with my close friends this Memorial Day weekend. It was a sort of reunion so we did not intend to do a lot of activity. That way this was a perfect place with an open kitchen so that we could converse while cooking. Kids had their own space below, big enough for them to run, watch TV and play. It was rainy so could not use the outside much.

The only sore point - We were really looking forward to use the Jacuzzi however could not get it to work. It was not responding to the switch, not sure why.

Else was a great memorable weekend. Would recommend it to others who just want to spend time with close ones.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the nice review and I am glad you had a good time at the chalet. The open kitchen and living room is a great plus! I am sorry to hear that the jacuzzi wasn't working. I will be up there today and check it out. Thank you for letting me know as we try to make sure everything is in working order. You are welcome back anytime! To follow up: I tried the jacuzzi and it does work. You have to turn it on the wall switch and push the button on the tub to start it. Please always call me with any questions when you are staying with me. I am always available to help. Or if I can't, I have a great handy man!

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

It was the most relaxing and inviting home I have stayed in. We had an enjoyable vacation, even when the weather didn't cooperate. The owners were very responsive and answered any questions we had. We were also happy to take along our 9 year old dog, so she could enjoy the vacation with us, too.
