About Melissa and Craig Bottomley

The moment we saw Ellicottville, we fell in love. The community is so welcoming and friendly, and the village so quaint with its boutiques and pubs. Not to mention the views of the surrounding countryside are breathtaking with the hills and valleys. We didn't realize what a four-season destination it truly was, and we enjoy golfing, hiking, skiing, listening to live music, shopping and dining in and around the area. There is always lots to see and do, and we enjoy having friends visit us at Hill Haven - it's perfect for two families or a group of friends!

We have used VRBO many times in the past for our own travels and have always enjoyed renting properties from owners rather than through an agency or staying at a hotel. It makes it far more personal, and the services and amenities that are available when renting a private residence are usually second to none. We hope you will come and visit Ellicottville and our little slice of heaven.

The views are breathtaking!

Bright and Spacious Chalet

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 families, a total of 10 people who stayed for the Canadian Family Day weekend.

There was plenty of room for all of us, the basement had 4 bunkbeds which were perfect for the 4 kids.

It's about a 5 minute drive to the hill which was nice so we could come back for lunch during the ski days.

The view is very nice and everything inside was clean and well equipped.

We would definitely stay again if we came back to Ellicottville.

Great all around

  • 5 of 5

The property is only a few years old and beautifully situated at the top of a hill, about 5 miles dmfrom Holiday Valley. Thank goodness we had a SUV because the driveway is steep. We found ithe chalet clean and comfortable. The audio system was great, too. We would return.

Our family of 5 had more than enough room and enjoyed every aspect of this gorgeous chalet!

  • 5 of 5

When we walked in, we were thrilled to see that the online photos reflected the beauty of this home. But the photos really don't do it justice--especially the views from the huge windows. Our kids loved playing in the spacious basement and have great memories of making s'mores in the fire pit out back. I LOVED the huge kitchen and the master bath was also lovely. It's a really wonderful place to kick back and relax and we hope to visit again!

Family Mini Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our 2 families. Plenty of room for all 8 of us. First impressions were amazing. The kids were so excited to see the basement and all the space for them to hang out and have some fun. Plus all the games and the foosball table. The kitchen is very well equipped, one of the best we have ever had. Thank you for providing so many extras that made our stay so enjoyable. Having all the spices and such good quality pots made cooking more like home. We would definitely recommend this chalet, it is minutes away from town for eating and shopping and so close to the ski hills. You can tell the owners love their property, it is so well taken care of and the quality of everything provided was great. Thank you for sharing your chalet. Next time we would love to hang out more at the chalet just to enjoy the views and the atmosphere. Happy New Year!

beautiful house and great owners

  • 5 of 5

House was in excellent condition and well appointed in all areas. All instructions from check-in to check-out, as well as, use of in house amenities were very clear. Beautiful views and the house is only 5 minutes away from Ellicottville. Owners are very responsive and pleasure to deal with. We'd definitely stay again.

Amazing rental

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in many rental homes over the years and this home is at the top. The owners were very easy to deal with, responded promptly and checked in with us the first night to make sure that everything was as we expected. This was also the most well-equipped home - so much so that we decided to just stay in the 2nd night, cook and spend time in the warm, comfortable home. Everything you need is provided from paper goods to spices, to Tupperware and zip-lock bags (a treat for a rental) and much more. No more wasting time at the grocery store for salt and pepper or dragging incidentals from home - they provide it all. It is a short drive from town (5 min) and has beautiful views and a great sound system. The home is well maintained and spotless, linens are great, beds are super comfortable - the pictures do not do it justice. I really hope we have the opportunity to return. The only thing they do not have is WiFi - just an FYI. We did not need it but you might want to know if you are renting the home for a week. Cant wait to visit again.

Hill Haven Chalet is the perfect 4-season destination. There are several golf courses within minutes from the chalet, as well as hiking and biking trails. Allegany State Park is a 15-20 minute drive away and offers fishing, swimming, kayak and canoe rentals and is the perfect spot for an afternoon picnic. Outlet shopping is available in Buffalo/Niagara Falls NY and is only a 45 minute drive from the chalet. Seneca Allegany Casino can be reached within 20 minutes and offers great entertainment. There are also several spas available locally within the village of Ellicottville. It is a perfect four season location for any type of traveler.
