Description of the Ellicottville vacation apartment rental
Welcome to the "Victorian Village" home situated in picturesque Ellicottville, NY, a charming town just 51 miles south of Buffalo, New York.
The "Independence" studio is perfect for a couple's private getaway weekend or if you and your spouse have two small children. It sleeps four with a kitchenette, full bath, hot tub and a cozy fireplace. It is not a hotel, but a section of a home with a private entrance.

***New for 2014*** Entryway upgraded including all new carpeting, drywall, painting and lighting.

Location, Location, Location. This home is the CLOSEST rental property to the downtown four corners (Washington and Jefferson). Just a few steps to downtown and less than 1 mile to both Holiday Valley Ski and Golf resort and Holimont ski resort. This stately Victorian home is set amidst an enclave of mature trees and is situated beside the "Oasis Day Spa".

It is in a fabulous winter/summer resort town. After skiing all day, take a break and get to know the village's shops, many fine restaurants, and cultural centers. Go for a short stroll and walk the streets of downtown Ellicottville. Enjoy having a pint at the "Gin Mill", off to "The Barn" for dinner and then of course go dancing the night away at "Balloons". Experience the charm and unhurried lifestyle of Ellicottville any time of year. The area is renowned for its hiking and there are many miles of mountain bike trails.

Perfect Weekend Getaway

March 17, 2015

I found the "Independence Studio" online while looking for a property in Holiday Valley. The online booking was easy and convenient. This property exceeded my expectations for the price. The location was just what I was looking for, with walking distance to the shops and pubs in town. A quick 3 minute drive to the ski hills in the morning was another great feature. Returned home after a great day of skiing and had a large hot tub waiting for me to relax in while enjoying a beverage. I would recommend this property for a couple looking to getaway and enjoy the weekend entertainment that Ellicottville has to offer year round. I definately will be looking to return soon!!!

Convenient and cozy.

My wife and I enjoyed our first trip to Ellicottville, as a "get-away" and a little change of pace. This studio apartment was pleasant, cozy and convenient to downtown shops and restaurants--we were able to walk most places we wanted to go.

Terrific deal!

The property is well kept and had everything you need for a weekend stay including our own hot tub. Located in the heart of the village we were able to walk to everything we wanted to. Overall a great experience and a great deal!

Stayed at this location for the weekend in January on my 2 year anniversary. Loved it! It is perfectly placed near the main strip of EVL, walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. The studio apartment was very comfortable and quaint! Perfect for a couple for a weekend.

Great accommodations!

September 25, 2014

My husband and I stayed at the Independence studio for the first weekend of September this year. The online booking was easy and seamless. We found our unit to be very clean and well stocked upon our arrival. It was great having a little kitchenette, with a full size refridgerator, toaster oven and microwave. The cuboards are also stocked with dishes and cutlery for convenience. We loved the feel of the room, the history of the home was nicely represented but with all the modern ammenties available. Having wifi was such a bonus for us! TV worked great and the beds were comfortable. Would definitely recommend!

little room above the hot tube\

August 10, 2014

We rented the small room above the hot tub of the Purple House. The room was lovely, very ecclectic with many different artifacts through out. It was comfortable but a bit stuffy. I would suggest gettin g a fan as the air conditioning did not work well and really it was not needed but hte circulation was poor. It was difficult to have the windows open as people could see right in. This was the only shortcoming of the house. The house is a perfect place to stay. We walked into town for dinner and breakfast and we were at Holiday Valley within minutes. We were able to make a dinner in the little kitchenette and we sat on the big porch and enjoyed it. The unit was equipped with everything that you needed for the weekend. Coffee pot, wine glasses, wine openers, movies, hot tub (although it could have been hotter) it was very nice. Lovely home, I will return.

Owner's reply:

Hi Christine;
Thanks for the feedback. I will make sure to put a small fan in that room for the days when you don't turn on the A/C unit. Glad you enjoyed the town and I agree, the location of the home is very close to all the activities and restaurants. Dave

Everything you need in a great location

July 16, 2014

We recently stayed in the Independence studio as part of a larger group. It was perfect to be able to be separate from the main group. The unit is perfect for 2, cozy for 4, and having the efficiency kitchenette was awesome. All the appliances one needs for a short stay. Step in shower a plus for us. We also had access to the huge hot tub and could share if we wanted. Separate entrances were also a plus. The location is wonderful as it was only 1 block to the shopping area. This was summer so we didn't have to worry about ski equip but the downstairs foyer would be great for that. So much to do around the Ellicottville area! We had a marvelous time. And, the EVL company very accommodating and friendly to handle the reservation and questions. Will definitely stay there again!

Cute and Clean!

The studio apartment is very cute, quaint, cozy and clean! We were very impressed! The best part about coming back from a long day of skiing was enjoying the private hot tub...definitely an essential and excellent option! The location of the apartment is very convenient. Minutes from Holiday Valley and Holimont and walking distance from downtown. I would rent this place in a heartbeat again!

The convenience to downtown and our favorite restaurants was the best part of our stay. No need to search for a parking space and easy to drop off bags from shopping before heading out again. The unit could use a little updating in decor but it is quaint and functional for a weekend stay for two.

Cozy getaway

March 13, 2013

What a perfect spot in a beautiful ski town. The Independence Studio, part of a large Victorian home, was mere steps from downtown Ellicottville. No shortage of shops and restaurants to check out. It's also a quick 2-3 minute drive to Holiday valley. The private hot tub was an absolute Godsend after skiing! Such an enjoyable, relaxing atmosphere! You can even see the slopes from the window! If you're looking for a quiet, comfortable spot to stay, look no further than Independence.

Exceptional Rental! Amenities galore!

September 13, 2012

I stayed at this property in August. Not only is it convenient to everything...the Village, Holiday Valley, bike trails and so much more, it has everything you need and then some. Tastefuly decorated with pieces of nostalgia throughout, you will never lack for conversation. One from person or a couple in the studio, to a large gathering in the main house, you can't go wrong with this property. When I arrived, it was spotless, and everything was there with clear instructions. Having worked in Property Management, I give this rental a A+++ .

What a great Place

March 23, 2012

My wife and I stayed at Harrys Place to go skiing in E/ville, it was just the right size for 2, cozy and quaint, Close to town, just a very short walk away, had all of the modcons you need for a few days stay. I have told others who ski that for an informal place to stay, this is the place, booking on line was easy and if you had any questions the owner more than helpfull is assist.
