About Carrie Leardini

My family lives in Lewiston, NY and we love to spend time in Ellicottville with our family and friends. We have started a family of our own and can't wait to bring our 3 children to Ellicottville to ski! We enjoy the off-season just as much. We are close to state land and enjoy taking hikes and mountain biking on the trails.

Carrie Leardini purchased this chalet in 2008

Why Carrie Leardini chose New York

Ellicottville is the perfect getaway in any season. There is XC and downhill skiing, snowboarding, tubing and snowmobiling in the winter; Hiking, mountain biking and golf in the spring, summer and fall. Weekend festivals and antiquing are always an option in any season! Simply relax and enjoy the mountain view in front of the wood burning fireplace or, outdoors, with the granite lined fire-pit. The chalet is close enough for a weekend getaway from many locations.

In an effort to be fair to all potential travelers, we only reserve dates upon payment. Requests for availability are welcomed, but not binding until payment is received.

What makes this chalet unique

Privacy, privacy, privacy! Great for families or couples looking for a short drive to the village & ski resorts, but private setting to relax. Wooded lot allows for great hiking or adventures for the kids. Hillside yard is perfect for kids looking for sledding while adults overlook from the wrap around deck or inside next to a cozy fireplace. For those that can't detach - we have in-home WiFi service powered by HughesNet.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Chris, I just wanted to let you know our family had a great time at your place. It was a very spacious, well stocked, and clean house at a great location. Thank you for sharing it with others.

It was a wonderful, warm, comfortable, home away from home for our family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The home was very warm and comfortable for our family vacation. The home was well equipped, especially the kitchen. PLenty of blankets and extra pillows. The washer and dryer came in handy. The owners were very accomidating and was very good about getting back when there were questions or concerns. Our deposit was returned in a very timely fashion after our stay. It more then met our expectations for a great winter family get away.

Fantastic place and owners!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughters, and I recently stayed at this property for a long weekend and it was wonderful! The chalet is fantastic - gorgeous views, nice big kitchen, plenty of room for everyone with a great layout that allowed the kids a separate area for their bedrooms, a game/tv area, and full bathroom all on the lower level with a fantastic master bedroom with high ceilings, French doors, and full bathroom for my husband and I on the upper level. The main level has high vaulted ceilings and fantastic big windows, a half bathroom, and a fabulous wood-burning fireplace. The chalet is well heated, great hot water and water pressure, and a private location only a few minutes away from Ellicottville. We actually preferred being a big out of the hustle and bustle of the town and ski areas while still being so close that it was very easy to go into the town several times. There's also a large tv in the living room with sound bar and Directv with another tv downstairs with PlayStation and lots of board games. Enjoyed watching bucks and does travel up and down the hill next to the property each morning and evening. Chalet was in great condition, wonderful appliances, wine chiller, microwave - everything nice and clean - really cute decorating throughout the chalet!

The owners were fantastic. Quick to respond and very helpful. Provided all the information we needed and then some so we had no questions or issues along the way. They made the process very easy. The chalet was equipped with information about the area activities, restaurants, things to do.

We just can't say enough about our entire experience at this property and the entire area itself. We definitely hope to stay here again in the future. None of us wanted to leave! Thanks again, Carrie & Andy, for such a wonderful experience.

The home was inviting from the moment you pulled up the driveway! Great views all around!

  • 4 of 5

Carrie & Andy started this great experience with wonderful communication prior to arriving. I felt very comfortable heading into the weekend. Upon entering the home it was clean and the natural light was streaming through the large windows in the family room. The floor plan was open so that while cooking dinner you still felt part of the action going on whether it be on the high ceilinged family room or the wrap around porch. All of the bedrooms were adequately sized and the bathrooms were clean and neat. The home is not too far away from downtown Ellicottville and is pretty close to skiing at Holiday Valley. I would most certainly stay at their residence again! Thank you both!
