ELLICOTTVILLE ESCAPE

Ellicottville Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Chateau / Country House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 21-23)

Our custom-built home near the heart of Western New York's ski center, Ellicottville New York (a 2 minute drive away), is located on a fabulous country lot with two ponds and beautiful views on all sides. The close proximity to Holimont and Holiday Valley ski areas provides the opportunity to enjoy a private luxurious retreat in a pastural environment. Minutes away is Allegheny State Park, the casino in Salamanca, and charming Ellicottville with its restaurants, night-life and myriad of shops to while away the hours.

Rumor has it the best snowmobiling in Western New York, cross-country skiing and snow-shoe trails, are right outside the front door with miles to explore. The property can be enjoyed four-seasons with unbelievable biking for all levels of expertise.

The home itself accommodates three families comfortably. After a full-day of skiing, an apres-ski snow-shoe, and a sauna to complete the day, there is nothing to do but relax, relax, and relax, with a little libation thrown in for good measure. Watch the sunset as the day draws to a close and like us (and all our guests) you'll be hard pressed to remember the stress and worries from the day before.

We bought this amazing property in 1988 and finally, after almost twenty years, decided if we were ever going to enjoy it we should build a home sooner rather than later. Our dream is to retire here in another twenty years but until then we enjoy this spot more than anywhere else. As our family gets older, and as we both are involved in building our business ventures, we are not able to vacation as often as we would like. Sharing our home with families who will appreciate the warmth of the home, who will enjoy re-charging by sharing laughter with good friends and family, and re-energizing in an exquisite rural environment, makes it worth opening our doors to hopefully new friends who will say 'that was so worth getting away.' Our goal is to find like-minded guests who look forward to returning each year to their home away from home. We hope you are one of them.

The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 2006

Ellicottville is simply about family. It's the place where we go that has no distractions. We can ski, snowboard, or snow-shoe as a family, share some laughs, watch MASH or Northern Exposure episodes, play games, or simply read a good book by the fire. It's where we connect as a family and find time to hear about what each of us care about. You cannot put a price tag on the importance of this part of our family time.

Even if we're not in the greatest mood when we drive to Ellicottville; within minutes of walking in the door we start a fire and the frustrations melt away. The peaceful scenery calms us in any season and we let nature work its magic. With a southern exposure and full floor to ceiling windows in a two-storey, vaulted ceiling great room, the sunshine lulls even the most active person to relax. The stream outside our door provides a calming sound as we fall asleep (OK perhaps not in the dead of winter when it's frozen) but all the elements of nature - sunshine streaming in the windows, snow blanketing the trees, rain on the metal roof, or thunder rolling through the hills are therapeutic. It's a beautiful part of the world, right in our backyard.

Ellicottville Escape is the best!

  • 5 of 5
This property is outstanding! The listing description and photos are exactly the way it is. It is immaculate and extremely well maintained. The owner is very accommodating and answered all necessary questions immediately. I would highly recommend this to families, couples and ladies or men's getaways. It has lots of room with a beautiful deck overlooking a pond, very peaceful and close to Ellicotville. We enjoyed cooking at the house and the restaurants in Ellicottville are all so good. Perfect for skiers, golfers and shoppers! Can't wait to return!! If there were ten stars it would get ten!

Reunion

  • 5 of 5
This spacious house was the perfect place for our reunion with our Australian cousins. It was a beautiful home. We had a large group of 24 cousins ranging in age from 8-55. We didn't feel cramped or crowded. The kitchen had all the amenities needed for cooking. The upstairs and downstairs living rooms with large screen TV's were great for watching the winter Olympics or movies for the younger kids. We absolutely loved the radiant floor heating which made the house extra cozy especially in the evening when the outdoor temperatures dropped to the single digits.

The house was in close proximity the ski slopes. Skiing was excellent as we had a foot of fresh snow. Those of us who didn't ski, enjoyed snow shoeing and shopping in the cute stores of Ellicottville.

The owner was easy to work with and very accommodating.

Owner's Response: Always fun to have great guests who appreciate the spacious home built by a contractor who put a lot of thought and care into the place. Linda and her group were especially wonderful since the connection from the satellite to the one TV failed and they did everything to work with the service provider to get it working again the next day - in time for the Winter Olympics which had just begun. Really appreciated their going with the flow and understanding that sometimes strange things happen.

New Year Trip

  • 5 of 5
There's no better way to complete the Christmas Holiday period and welcome in the New Year. A group of friends including children and pets enjoyed the warm and cosy environment provided by Ellicottville Escape, following fun days spent skiing on the slopes at Holiday Valley. The house was, as described, clean, well-equipped and inviting with open fires, comfortable sitting areas and beds, and plenty of hot water/towels. Also, lots of games including ping pong to keep all entertained.

The house was in a lovely, quiet location with easy access to the town and ski areas. Would definitely recommend to anyone wishing to stay in Ellicottville.

Owner's Response: It was great when Lucy emailed to say that it was a New Years they would never forget. Ellicottville somehow has that impact on people and glad to know our place helped contribute to that memory and experience.

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5
This was the sixth annual "On the Road with Grandma" trip and this house was perfect! I never know for sure exactly how many of us will be on the trip until we are within a month or two of leaving. This year we had 3 adults and 10 "kids" between 6 and 18. The sleeping accommodations were comfortable and it was easy to accommodate the differences in ages and needs. The teenage girls loved the loft; the teenage boys loved the bunk room. Because we usually cook dinner and breakfast, we really appreciated the large, well-stocked kitchen. The fire pit was a big hit the night we roasted marshmallows and played "Truth or Dare." The kids played ping pong and some of the other games provided. The last night we were there we all watched a movie together in the living room and everyone was able to comfortably cuddle together.

The area provided lots of activities: we loved the ropes course (even grandma!), the Holiday Valley pool, the horseback riding, the llama farm and visiting the Amish. Of course, we spent one day at Niagara Falls, which was an easy drive.

All in all, it was a great trip!!

Owner's Response: Terrie and her family were a continuation of the guests we enjoy having at our place. They took care of our home as if it was their own - and made full use of the community and all the fun places to visit. Terrie was also extremely patient on some communication issues we had with phone and satellite internet - but they've been resolved and we appreciate her patience. Perfect guests. Thanks Terrie.

Great Family Home

  • 5 of 5
The owner is great to work with! The listing photos accurately reflect the house, very well kept, and close to everything. Most importantly Family friendly, lots of space and comfy-cozy! I particularly enjoyed the kitchen space to cook, fireplaces on both levels (lots of firewood for use) and the lower level room to store All the ski equipment and outerwear. We will certainly be back!

Owner's Response: Always great to have guests like Bill, Jill and their friends - it helps take away the concern whether people will treat your house like it was their own. It is such a peace of mind and they were great to work with. They are also a classic example of the early bird gets the best booking - they were searching in early September 2012 and were the first one to book. Wish I could be a fraction as organized - I'll have to start taking lessons from them.

Multi - family ski trip

  • 5 of 5
We were at Debra's house with 5 families including 6 kids. The house is super confortable and has a perfect layout. Lot's of things to entertain the kids - they had a blast! Debra was very accomodating and extremely easy to deal with. We are already planning our visit next year.

Owner's Response: Alessandra and her guests were extremely easy going and a pleasure to have at our place. We laughed over a shared experience. I had to email her after their visit to ask if she knew where a blanket disappeared to from the loft. When she suggested to check the basement I knew what had probably happened - our kids when they were young would create forts in the bunk beds. Sure enough - that's exactly what happened with their crew. As Alessandra said - "kids will be kids" - it was like playing with the box on Christmas morning instead of playing with the toys.
