About Gene Mongan

My wife, three boys and I live within an hour of our country home. Our family enjoys the outdoors and the many activities that go with it. We want to make your stay a comfortable one in our clean country home. We are confident that you will enjoy our home, property and the many attractions that make Ellicotville so special.

Gene Mongan purchased this chalet in 2013

Why Gene Mongan chose New York

We have searched for a multiple use area that offers quality skiing, snowboarding, golfing, mountain biking, hunting, fishing,shopping, dining and nightlife, a true twelve month destination. Our decision to own a home in this area was based on the fact that Ellicotville offers all of that in an absolutely spectacular and beautiful area. Within a short drive of Allegheny State Park and the Seneca Casino.

What makes this chalet unique

We loved that fact that our entire family had several areas in our home to gather. Be it a game of pool in the rec room, a quiet read in the loft or a cocktail on the deck watching the sunset over the mountains. A three minute drive and we are playing golf at Holiday Valley Resort. Our kids are back and forth to the ski resort two or three times a day with the short drive (lunch & dinner) with no worries. Situated on perhaps some of the most scenic 30 acres we have ever seen with its stocked pond, towering oak trees, apple orchards and gorgeous foliage. Enjoy the wildlife; deer, turkey, fox, ruffed grouse, coyote, ducks, squirrels and chipmunks.

We have a home with a tremendous location on a gorgeous property. It is tucked away enough for a quiet get away, yet only a few short minutes to everything Ellicotville and Holiday Valley have to offer. $30 cab fair from Ellicotville to our home for an 8 person van!

Gracious Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this property. Our group included three teenage boys and three moms. The basement space was perfect for the boys and the adults loved having a separate living area. The house was very clean and the owners left thoughtful supplies in the kitchen and bathrooms. The house has a remote feel yet is a very short and easy drive to Holiday Valley. Ellicottville is also easily accessed via a back road near the property. The owners provided fantastic customer service. They gave us a lot of helpful information and responded promptly to text message questions. They also processed our deposit refund almost immediately after the trip. Overall, this is a comfortable, spacious house with plenty of sleeping and living space. We have stayed in numerous rentals near Holiday Valley over the years and this house is a great deal for the space and quality of the furnishings. We would recommend this property to any groups visiting the area and hope to return for future ski trips.

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place to stay. Well maintained and very clean. We especially liked the entertainment room downstairs. Owner was very helpful in making our stay a great one. The owner also made great recommendations for places in the town to check out. Everyone who stayed was very satisfied with the stay. Location of the house seemed like it was just 5 mins from where ever we went. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Repeat visit as good as first

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to this rental, and both times we have been very pleased with the house and amenities. Lots of comfy beds, 2 bathrooms, everything you could need in the kitchen available and easy to find. The owners checked in by txt shortly after our arrival to ensure everything was as we expected. We plan to make it an annual event! Only a 5 minute drive across a country road to the ski lifts! We also explored some of the trails on the property this time, and plan to also come back in the summer for more hiking.

Best Vacation House for Holiday Valley!

  • 5 of 5

What a terrific vacation house! We had 8 family members and 3 friends ages 4 -61 for our skiing/boarding vacation. This house was perfect. The kids could sleep upstairs while the rest of us played pool, cards and watched t.v. on the other two levels. The house was fully equipped, cozy as could be and very clean. We moved in and instantly felt right at home. Our host, Gene could not have been nicer and he was extremely helpful and accommodating. The house is only a few minutes away from Holiday Valley and Ellicotville. For convenience, comfort and cost you can't beat it! We look forward to staying here again. soon!

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

Perfect property for a nice long relaxing weekend just outside Ellicottville.

More than enough room to lounge, relax, play pool/cards, fish, and enjoy some Labatt's. Or remember to bring your growlers and go down to the newly expanded Ellicottville Brewing Company to get refills. Their freshest, most exclusive beers are all on tap. And totally worth booking a tour.

Full kitchen has everything you need to prep food, plus Gene supplies a Webber grill and charcoal. There's a picnic table on a concrete pad just outside the basement and steps away from the fire pit. And Gene supplies plenty of wood, and pre-cut, perfectly dry kindling.

Plenty of beds, couches and futons, plenty of room in the driveway for parking. About a 5-7 minute drive from downtown.

Car: recommended

A short drive down a country road to the Village of Ellicotville where you can window shop, dine or have a cocktail at the many wonderful establishments in town. Ellicotville is rich with tradition and in particular during the fall and winter months. The many festivals and events carried out nearly every weekend in Ellicotville make this quaint village a very popular destination for many. Ellicotville is so often refered to as the Vail of the North East, plan your visit and see why!

The Holiday Valley Ski Resort and Hotel is a year round destination for skiing, snowboarding, golf or the kids can spend the day at the Ski High Adventure Park! The new hotel and conference center are a popular destination for people just wanting to relax with a drink by the pool (open to the public) with a view of the ski hills and golf course.

If relaxing at home is your idea of fun you will enjoy our property with its beautiful hillside views. Watch the sunset over the hills from our deck. Enjoy the wildlife, the sound of Plum Brook babbling through the woods and a roaring campfire!
