About Eva Knof

Our cabin is owned by a group of 4 active families with kids. We love to ski, mountain bike, hike and take in the local cultural events that Ellicottville and its beautiful surrounding area has to offer. We enjoy the cabin off season just as much.

Eva Knof purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Eva Knof chose New York

This is a super deal for families with kids and sport and adventure seekers!

What makes this chalet unique

- Just minutes away from great mountain biking, hiking and snowmobile trails

- 15 minutes away from Holiday Valley Ski Resort with 58 slopes and trails and 13 lifts, 5 terrain parks, glades, bump runs and plenty of cruisers, there's something for everyone.

- 15 minutes from Holiday Valley Golf Course - The newly redesigned 18 hole par 70 'Double Black Diamond' golf course is challenging and well maintained with breathtaking scenery from every hole. The Double Black Diamond was nominated by Golf Magazine as one of the best redesigns in the country.

Really nice cottage

  • 4 of 5

There was more then enough space for everyone to sleep comfortably. There's no cell service near the cottage (depending on the provider) but that didn't bother us. Kitchen comes with all the appliances you'll need. Would definitely stay again.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Beautiful lot with lots of wildlife. Looks like they have a slalom course on the hill in the winter. Would have liked to know where to take the garbage when we left!

Great place for family

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was just as expected beautiful property and enough room for a big family we all really enjoyed are stay. Eva accommodated our request for linens because we flew in from Calif and that made us all comfortable our family had a nice meeting place to sit and be together that was all I could ask for

The only flaw we would have appreciated some notice on the no toilet paper allowed down the toilet rule

Had a great stay

Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great few days at this cabin. There were 5 adults and 8 children in our group and we all had beds that were comfortable. It was a lovely, peaceful setting with plenty to do outside. The cabin was well equipped and provided a wonderful relaxing time for us all. The owners were very friendly, and excellent to work with. We will definitely go back if we are in that area again!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 9 stayed here this past weekend. The cabin was comfortable, cozy, spacious, and clean. The beds were comfortable and they had everything you would expect from a rental and more! The property is fantastic, there is so much to do and there’s tons of space to go exploring. The owners were a pleasure to work with as well. Highly recommended and we will be back!!
