Great stay. Huge yard was a plus.

Robs place was great. Enough beds and couches for everyone. The yard and game room were ideal for activities.

Black and white mold. And no dehumidifier for unit

  • 1 of 5

The owners were very nice but the lower unit had some major issues, there was not only black mold but white fuzzy mold in the bathroom. Who knows where else mold was growing. That is definiatly a health code violation. When we woke up in the morning everything was wet from moisture poss from being in the basment. Rob stated he didnt know about the mold however no one was staying in the upstairs unit but it was not offered to us to use for the 2nd night. My only regret was not taking pictures to post with review.

Owner's Response: Jen, we are sorry you didn’t enjoy your stay. As we discussed last weekend, we did not realize prior to your arrival there was a water leak that affected a wall in the bathroom. During our visit we apologized and asked multiple times if there was anything we could do address the issue during the weekend and your response was “It wouldn’t be a problem, actually, this is the nicest place we have rented!” We would have certainly offered our other unit had you expressed any concern on Friday or Saturday. In fact you continued to dismiss any conversation relating to the wall in the bathroom. Our goal is to offer the best rental experience and appreciate your feedback! We had people into the unit this week to address the repairs. Thank you….

Very nice!

  • 4 of 5

The place was perfect for a weekend away. The only issue was that we had the basement apt and it was a little musty in smell upon arrival. Other than that great place!

Wonderful House in Ellicottville!!

  • 5 of 5

We can't put into words how great this house and all of the facilities included were for us! We stayed for 2 nights in October with a group of 8. The house was more than big enough for all of us! The best part of our stay was the hot tub in the back room and all of the activities in the garage. Ping pong table, darts and a fridge. The garage even had large space heaters to make it comfortable that time of year! It's within walking distance to the village of Ellicottville. The owner was great to deal with. I definitely recommend booking for a weekend away!

off season stay

  • 4 of 5

The property is split into two units, basement and main floor. We chose to stay in the basement unit since it was newly renovated. The unit was nice and clean, but retained its basement dampness and musty smell. The furniture was older, including the beds. The mattresses were hard as a rock and none of them were above a full size so not sized for tall or big people. The hot tub was clean and in good condition, but the view was yard cleaning supplies and when you opened the garage door for a view, the main view was a concrete and brush pile. Overall it was a good value for off season, but next stay will likely be somewhere else. This seems like a good place for college kids or families to stay. The location was good as it was in walking distance of downtown. The owner Rob was very nice and easy to work with.

Rental 501160

  • 3 of 5

I thought the lower level of the house was very nice. Very comfortable beds and pillows. Plenty of places to unpack as well. Loved the ping pong, darts, and basketball in the garage. I was quite concerned that there were no smoke alarms. We found a Carbon Monoxide detector that was not functional. There is only one exit on the lower level so appropriate warnings are necessary. Not sure I saw any fire extinguishers either. Walking distance to EVL is true, just a good walk, 20 minutes. Great hot tub, towels, and little toiletries. Could use a broom an dust pan, bottle opener, wine key, and scissors.

We enjoyed our stay. Very comfortable.

Owner's Response: Mary, Thanks for your comments... We did check out the unit based on your concerns. A quick summary, we did have smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors in place but for some reason the sensors were removed and batteries taken out. We have since replaced these units with new ones. We do have fire extinguishers in both units and they are located in the kitchen cabinet. A final note we certainly want to address is the alternate exit in our lower unit. We have a large window installed in one bedroom which is in the opposite corner of the lower unit which allows for a separate exit in case of an emergency. We appreciate your comments and continue to take immediate steps to address any issues you may identify in our unit. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.. Rob Swim
