About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

My charming log cabin sits on 100 acres of private land which adjoins 2200 of New York State Forest. It overlooks a small pond which is stocked with bass. You are welcome to catch a few and cook them fresh on the Weber gas grill. The front porch is comfortable with beautiful views of the pond, hills and the valley below.

It is a cozy cabin with a sleeping loft and comes with a fully equipped kitchen and a shower bath. The loft has a double bed and the first floor has a double futon.

Bring your bicycles in the summer or your cross country skis or snowshoes in the winter or your hiking boots year round, as the stare forest is full of groomed trails. Or bring your books and just relax and enjoy your surroundings.

We are only 12 minutes from Ellicottville, New York which is a quaint little ski and resort town. You can ski in the winter or golf in the summer. There are world class restaurants for fine dining and wonderful shopping.

It is the perfect place for solitude or a romantic getaway. I hope you will come and enjoy this special place on Golden Hill!!

Cozy tucked away cottage within the wilderness

  • 5 of 5

I surprised my boyfriend with a weekend away to enjoy time at Holiday Valley and this charming cottage tucked away in the woods. It was filled with beautiful sky and mountain views and tons of deer sighting, It was a perfect weekend away! Bette has everything that could be needed for you except for food/beer and your bathroom goodies. She responded to questions quickly and was very helpful! We look forward to coming again!

amazing cabin in an amazing area

  • 5 of 5

the cabin is just gorgeous and the area is just amazing, endless mountains and green valleys.

the cabin itself is very very clean, well maintained and organized. you have all the amenities you will need in the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.

the owner house is just 1 minute driving from the cabin, so if there is anything you need, she's right there. and on the other hand she gave us the full privacy while we were there.

the pond is just lovely but unfortunately we did not catch any fish.

i will highly recommend this cabin for any of my friends.

What an awesome cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have rented this property over the past four years, and have never been disappointed. We always rent it over the weekend. The first time we arrived, it was evening and dark outside and we were completely amazed when we saw the pond in the morning. Since then, we've enjoyed the cabin and its amenities each time we've been there. The cabin has everything you'll need, such as a fridge, silverware, microwave, cups, dishes, coffee maker, shower, games, TV, DVR player, etc. The cabin is very clean, and more than enough towels were left for us to shower. The first night there, we usually play a game of Trivial Pursuit, have snacky-type food, and just enjoy the cabin! On Saturday, we spend part of the day at the cabin, either reading, napping or being outside. This was the first year that I used the pond for bass fishing. I had what seemed like a large fish that broke my line and got away! We always take the short ride and head into Ellicottville late Saturday afternoon to do some shopping, eat dinner, and enjoy the great beer at Ellicottville Brewing Company. If you're looking for the perfect getaway, this is it! The owner, Bette, is very friendly, and we usually like to stop by her house and tell her how much we enjoy the cabin. I have recommended the cabin to many people since we've been renting it, and we plan on returning for our fifth year next fall!
