Nestled in the woods ten minutes from the village and ski resorts, this inviting log cabin transports you to a private, lush retreat. The cabin has been recently updated with new carpeting and upgraded hot tub.
The main level bedroom has a king sized bed and a flat screen TV. There are two bedrooms upstairs, each with a queen size bed. The upstairs loft, with a full size futon, TV and DVD player, makes a excellent play area for the kids. A queen size pullout sofa in the living room provides additional sleeping space. There are two full baths, one on each level.
In the winter months return from a day of skiing, hiking or shopping and relax in front of a beautiful 16 foot stone fireplace, or enjoy the outdoor hot tub.
In the summer months there’s mountain biking, boating and hiking. When you return you can open all your windows for a fresh mountain breeze or you can use the central air conditioning. You'll be entirely restored for the next day's activities.
What a nice place to stay when visiting Ellicottville. Nice kitchen, living room, fireplace and deck and hot tub. 5 minutes to Holimont, a couple more to the village, and about 10 minutes to Holiday Valley. Close enough to be right there but far enough away to enjoy the beautiful natural setting. Be advised however, a 4x4 is a must getting in and out especially when it is snowing (the owner told us this before we came, you should believe her). We got about 2 feet over the weekend we were there - great for skiing, not so much for driving but with the four wheel drive vehicles we managed fine by taking our time. Overall, a wonderful place and I would definitely recommend it and stay there again if we plan another trip to the area.
We so enjoyed renting this cabin during our ski trip this past week. Diane was lovely to work with and the cabin was cozy and immaculate. Like previous reviewers mentioned, a four wheel drive is helpful as the driveway is steep, and you really can hear every noise made in the other rooms, but sound machines were provided so we slept great! It was a great place to come back to after skiing and the hot tub was awesome as well to soak sore muscles. We will definitely book with Diane again if we're ever up in the area. Thanks again!
We have stayed at the cabin for 4 consecutive years and we love it. It feels like our own cabin. The location is wonderful; only 10 minutes from town (great restaurants and Holiday Valley/Holimont skiing) yet you feel as though you are in your own little world on top of a mountain in the woods. Extremely private, peaceful, quiet. The view through the trees over the ridge is wonderful in winter, facing south with beautiful sun coming through the windows in the great room, and sitting in the hot tub under the stars (or when it's snowing!) is heavenly. The cabin itself is always in perfect condition, very clean and well maintained, bedrooms are very comfortable and its great to have 2 bathrooms. a dishwasher and a mudroom. The stone fireplace makes the whole cabin feel cozy and the owner provides wood and kindling. We plan to keep coming back for our winter ski getaway every year!
Very clean, nice, quiet and comfortable cabin/ Will be definitely stay there again.
Thank you Diane!
My wife and I spent a late summer weekend at this great cabin with two other couples. Everyone enjoyed the quiet, wooded setting with a spacious deck for grilling and star gazing. The hot tub was a big plus for tired mountain bikers. The well-equipped kitchen was ideal for a birthday dinner cooked in house. Comfortable furniture and beds, proximity to Pittsburgh, and a quick drive to town and trails make this a five-star rental.
The cabin was great. Everything was very high quality and working perfectly, and the cabin was clean. The TV and stereo were very well set up and much higher end than most rental properties. The cabin is not far from Holiday Valley, which is what we were using it for, I want to say it was about a 10 minute drive. The hot tub was great, although it was slightly smaller than I expected (it could comfortably fit 4 people). Dealing with the owner was painless.
There are two cautions I would throw out there:
1) There is very little soundproofing in floors/walls, it's basically just a layer of wood, so privacy is somewhat compromised if that's important to you. Not a big minus, just something to be aware of.
2) The cabin is at the top of a steep hill with tight turns that gets snowed on before everything else so it can be quite difficult to get to. I would say either 4WD or snow tires or tire chains are an absolute must in winter. I am very experienced with heavy snow driving and think most people overestimate how often these snow driving aids are needed, but they're needed here.
Overall I'm very happy with my stay and definitely would recommend the cabin.
