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.

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.

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!

Great House & Great Area - Not Just for Winter!

  • 4 of 5

We had 3 families get together for a week at the Ellicotville House. Is it in an area popular for Skiing?... yes. Still fun in summer? Absolutely. Had 6 adults and 4 kids from 11 to 2. House was as described and process was straightforward. Very responsive owner to any and all inquiries. House was clean and well appointed. We made many day trips during our stay. There are plenty of places within 10 minutes to 1.5 hr for scenic drives & to find adventures. We visited Letchworth State Park, Holiday Valley pool complex, Niagara Falls, and Darien Lake during the day and gathered round the campfire at night with fireflies and stars aplenty. Allegheny S.P. and Stony Brook S.P. also near. Needless to say we dug it. A few items to be aware of there's no A/C in summer months, outdoor grill is ready for a refresh, and if you have little ones a gate for spiral stairs would come in handy. Would i recommend? For Sure! Thank you for a real good time.

Beautiful home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Planned a weekend getaway here with friends. The house was beautiful, recently built. Secluded location with great views but convenient to ski slopes, casino, and fantastic restaurants and nightlife in Ellicottville. Would definitely stay again, thanks for a great experience!
