Everything Was Broken but it was a Great Stay

  • 3 of 5

Where do I begin? Let's start with trying to find the place. Forget GPS, it doesn't understand the address. At least it didn't for me. I highly recommend mapping it out ahead of time and doing things the old fashioned way.

Now lets talk about what was broken.

The dishwasher was broken but I managed to get it to work after tripping the breaker. The ice maker and water in the refrigerator didn't work and the fridge itself stopped working on the last day. Thankfully it was the last day or I might not be so forgiving. Many of the windows were broken with missing screens or hardware. Since there is no AC and we were staying in the late summer, this is significant. The trashcan was broken and it looked like someone used it for practicing field goals. The grill didn't work well, it was difficult to get the burners work properly, and ran out of propane during our stay. The master bedroom door was broken and couldn't be closed properly. The bunk bed was broken. The pool table was broken but we fixed it. One of the bar stools was broken but we fixed it. Galaga was broken and would suddenly shut off randomly. The air hockey table was broken, and the pinball machine was broken. The heater in the hot tub was also broken, and it seemed like all the batteries in the many remotes to run the entertainment system were dead.

In short, after what appears to be an endless stream of frat parties, this house needed some love big time.

That said, the location was perfect for me and my family. It's probably the quietist place I've ever stayed (and I travel quite a bit) which was helpful as I really needed the rest. It was great to wake up to the trees in the back yard and the smell of nature.

I have family that lives nearby so the location was ideal. It is true what they say about real estate and location being key. The quiet, secluded location alone has saved this review from being completely negative.

Would I stay here again? Despite it's shortcomings I'd have to say yes, but I think I'd renegotiate the terms based on the "available" amenities.

Owner's Response: Hi there. I am the owner of this property and would like to respond to this last review. I appreciate the renters honesty and apologize that things were not in better condition. Honestly, we don't get up to the chalet as often as we should. However, now that all of these issues have been brought to our attention, we will work to resolve them before our next renters arrive. Thank you.

Our group had a blast over winter carnival weekend. We enjoyed the village of ellicottville and skiing at holiday valley. The house was central to everything and after a fun day at slopes we enjoyed a couple rounds of pool and capped the evening off with a soak in the hot tub.

Family getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was great. The house was beautiful and stocked well with necessities such as towels, clean comfy sheets, and pillows. The rooms are a great size and there is a lot of space to house many people. Our only complaints were that the sauna wasn't working and there were a few wasp nests which happened to be surrounding the hot tub. The only other issue was that the door on the upstairs bedroom was broken and couldn't be closed and though the place had definitely been cleaned it certainly wasn't "clean". All in all it was a great trip and we really enjoyed ourselves.
