About Michael Peck

We love this ski chalet - our kids are getting busy in school now, so we aren't down and using it every weekend any longer. The views are awesome in both summer and winter.

Michael Peck purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Michael Peck chose Ellicottville

Tons of space on 4 levels in the property gives tons of room for a family or two to spread out, and also to gather and celebrate together. The chalet is on the highest road at Holimont, affording fantastic views of the area. It's very quiet, and is an easy 15 minute walk into downtown Ellicottville.

Please note, that in the winter, it is a steep road to get up the hill to the chalet, so you should have a 4 wheel drive vehicle with snow tires.

What makes this chalet unique

The views are spectacular - the chalet size is very deceiving - four levels in the chalet. Walk in from the main level to 3 bedrooms, ski room, game room, bathroom, sauna and to the hot tub out back. Go down a level to the ping pong room. Go up a level to the very large family room, living room, master bedroom, two full bathrooms, and full kitchen and dining rooms with large fireplace and deck with awesome views and a barbecue. Go up one more level to the loft, with another bed and some work out gear.

Ski in ski out old school ski chalet

  • 5 of 5

We rented this Holimont ski chalet for Presidents week as children ages 10 and 12 were off school. As luck would have it, the temperatures set record highs as did amount of rain fall. Skiing was out of the question for several of the days(I tried but children flat out mutinied). The house was well equipped to ride out the storm. There were plenty of board games, ping pong, foosball and tvs to watch movies. The kitchen was well equipped for whatever we wanted to prepare. The grill on the deck works perfectly. Who new hot tubs could be so much fun in pouring rain. In short, what could have been a disastrous ski vacation based on the weather turned into solid family fun time largely facilitated by this comfortable, homey ski chalet. Also, I must mention that Michael the owner was very attentive by text and email to answer my every question. We would not hesitate to rent this property in the future and I think it would be quite comfortable with a larger crowd or two families sharing as it has a myriad of sleeping options and spaces to segregate.

Amazing location with weekend Holimont access!

  • 5 of 5

Great Holimont location with ski in ski out access! Well equipped ski chalet with huge wood burning fireplace, (we roasted hot dogs and made s’mores during the Super Bowl), large well-equipped kitchen, game room your kids will adore, Sonos sound system, tons of board games, outdoor private hot tub steps away from the indoor sauna, huge ski room for gear, nothing is missing from this home!

The owner was incredibly responsive and helpful during our stay, and the home itself was spotless with comfortable beds and tons of towels for our many trips in and out of the hot tub.

We recently spent a long weekend with son who is just learning to ski. We signed him up for group lessons at Holimont but other than Saturday morning he had an instructor all to himself! This was our first ski tip in almost 20 years (I lived in Vail, CO in my twenties) and I can honestly say that Holimont is just as wonderful in its own way. Perfectly groomed trails and friendly skiers, no lift lines and plenty of room to enjoy the many trails. It does skew to the novice/intermediate skier, but for the weekend warrior it will be perfect!

Ellicottville is a cute little ski town with great brew pubs and check out the EVL cheese shop for your apre ski provisions! We also enjoyed the curly fries at the Gin Mill (some of the best curly fries I’ve had since The Brotherhood in Nantucket).

We can’t wait to return!

Great Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family weekend at this chalet! From 75 to 7 years old, we all enjoyed our stay. The game room was awesome for the kids! The ski room was wonderful for all of our snow gear after our time at Holiday Valley! Our family loved the hot tub, the sauna, the ping pong table, and all of the games! There are MULTIPLE game systems on multiple TVs and plenty of board games available as well! Michael was very accessible and responded very quickly to every message.

As stated prior, if there is snow on the roads, you definitely need a 4 wheel drive to get up the road and driveway!

The layout of the house seems a little confusing at first but we had a great time figuring it out and it added to the adventure of the weekend!

We all decided that we would definitely stay here again! Maybe next winter!

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here for Octoberfest weekend and it was even better than we expected! Plenty of room, nice big porch to hang out on, and Michael was very helpful with everything and just a phone call away! It's on a steep hill so definitely make sure you have 4 wheel drive if you're visiting in the Winter. In conclusion, I would absolutely stay here again 100%, beautiful home with everything you would need to enjoy yourself! Thank you again, Michael!

Clean, spacious chalet and very accommodating hosts!

  • 5 of 5

This chalet was the perfect place to stay for our friends getaway. We had 4 couples staying and had plenty of space. The hot tub and sauna were awesome and the game room provided hours of entertainment. The kitchen has everything you would need to cook and there were plenty of plates and other dishware for our big group. The beds were very comfortable and the bunk beds are all full/queen sized, which we were pleasantly surprised about. Even though we were not able to ski as much as we wanted due to the weather, we all still had a great time just hanging out in the chalet and down in Ellicottville. Michael was an excellent host, checking in with me everyday and giving us a lot of extra time our final day with a late checkout. We will definitely be back!
