Earlier this year we stayed at a VRBO just across from Holiday Valley for our first time in Ellicottville (EVL) as we wanted to be close. Now that we knew our way around we expanded our search looking within a 10 mile radius of EVL, hoping to find something with a better view, and a full home vs. a condo, with a bit more privacy. We found it with this property. Great deck, great view of the hills, and a small pong on the property (it was frozen when we were there so not much to look at as it looks like the field, just white!, but worth noting for other seasons!), Sledding right at the property is very good. Just the right slope angle to provide a nice speed sledding hill without the walk back up the hill being too much work! Kids loved the sledding. Very private. As an unfortunate "attached to work always" professional, internet service is important. This property appears to have hughes satellite service and performance was better on this then expected averaging 45 mbps down and 2-5 mbps up. However, more importantly, there is a cell tower within view of the property, in the distance a bit, but clear line of sight and we had 5 bar LTE verizon service and we have unlimited data on Verizon as well and received very high performance data on LTE as well. We have been looking at other properties in EVL, and finding a nice property outside of EVL, with good internet, good view, nice building, and good price, is tricky, and this property has it all. Everything was as described by owners, all communication was good. We had a snow event adding 6" in a short time, and the owners called the snow plow service to make sure the driveway was clear for us, which was greatly appreciated. The other commenters commented on the lower level being cooler, which is true, but the wood stove heats it up quickly, and there was a box fan there too which when placed near stove to blow hot air over it, speeds that up considerably. Ample amounts of dried wood was provided by the owners which we have not found at other places. Very nice sized TV's both in main living area and lower unit, with Dish Satellite service which worked great during our stay. The teenagers loved the loft, the master bedroom was great for the adults, and the lower unit having its own tv, bed, plus additional futon, and dedicated bathroom allowed for myself to be the night owl I am without disrupting the rest of the family. Highly recommend.
