Inn at Holiday Valley
What We Love
- A ski-in, ski-out hotel with a year-round outdoor pool - includes continental breakfast
- Noshing down on a daily continental breakfast, completely gratis
- Adventuring, biking and teeing away when the weather’s nice and warm
- Going skiing in the winter – the property didn’t get Snow Country magazine accolades for less-than-impressive slopes
- Taking a dip in the year-round, heated outdoor pool
Spend your next holiday at TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning
Holiday Valley, and one thing is assured: You’ll have plenty of room to
roam. The resort houses 12 different residential and recreational
buildings – and that’s just this hillside property’s base area. Once you
climb the hill, or step outside at all, you’ll find much, much more, no
matter the weather.
Let’s say you come in the warmer seasons. If
you’re a golfer, you’ll be able to tee your way off through the woods
and around the ponds where the Double Black Diamond course twists and
turns. If you’re adventurer, you can take your pick of 13 aerial
courses, a climbing forest and even a mountain coaster. And if you’re a
biker? You can pedal over 30 miles of trails.
you’re more of a cold-weather traveler. It just so happens not only that
a slopeside location is one of this ski-in, ski-out property’s proudest
features – Snow Country magazine called it a top hotel in the
Ski Area Design Awards – but that the slopes in question contain a
whopping 58 trails and five terrain parks. And if you get worn out
stretching your legs, there’s always the winter-perfect dedicated
board-game cupboard, so you can stretch your mind instead.
The Inn houses 95 rooms and seven suites, all comfortable and Wi-Fi-equipped. You’ll have two queen beds in yours.
have lots of culinary choice at Holiday Valley, from the cafeteria in
your base lodge – there’s one in each – to picnic services to several
more formal eateries. Order breakfast at Mountainside Grille on
weekends, pick an ale or lager at John Harvard’s Brew House, shop for
soups and sandwiches at Yodeler Lodge’s Marketplace Cafe, or grab a
pastry and Starbucks coffee at McCarty Cafe, to name just a few of your
on-site dining options. Also consider heading into surrounding
Ellicottville and checking out such restaurants as The Armor Inn Tap
Room and Cadillac Jack’s.
Falling Waters Spa is
in Holiday Valley’s Tamarack Club building and prides itself on its
calming ambience. Here, you’ll find a lobby with, appropriately, a
waterfall, plus seven treatment rooms, including two double suites and
three wet rooms. You can opt for a mani or pedi, but if you’d like a
massage, facial or body treatment, there’s plenty in the way of that –
check out a menu that includes such offerings as the Exhilarating Ginger
Whether you come when
temperatures are high or low, you’ll find there’s tons to do throughout
Holiday Valley, which contains a golf course, an adventure park with a
mountain coaster and 13 aerial courses, 30 miles of mountain-biking
trails, 58 ski trails and five terrain parks. You can also shop
year-round, both on the mountain and in the area, or dine in downtown
Ellicottville. If you’re up for a day trip, head out to the Griffis
Outdoor Sculpture Park or Niagara Falls.
How to Get There
We stayed at the Inn at Holiday Valley and visited with family in Ellicottville for Thanksgiving. Rooms were clean, hotel was close to town, and the indoor/outdoor pool was awesome for my son. Highly recommended!
I held a few business meetings here in November 2018 and it was wonderful. I assume this resort is underutilized in the spring and fall months. The grounds are gorgeous, and the rooms are great with different sizes and quality for every need and budget. The meeting planning team was wonderful. It was easy to communicate prior and execute on the day of. The food at John Harvard’s was so delicious. Holiday Valley has a spa that I can’t wait to try. The pool and outdoor bar look like they would make for a great time with family and friends in summer months. There’s even a heated indoor to outdoor transition pool open. I’m really happy and will return to this resort. Ellicottville’s downtown area which is around the corner less than a mile away is full of unique, delicious culinary experiences, local distillery, & breweries. Photos of food are from locations offsite in Ellicottville. Outdoor photos are from Holiday Valley Inn. This is a great destination you’re sure to enjoy!
MY wife and I were celebrating our 33rd anniversary and took a road trip to visit the Ellicottville area. The INN offered a good alternative to some of the hotels in the area and in many cases was more affordable. Also, staying there was a nice break from a typical hotel room. The room was very nice, clean, and gave you a feeling of being more in a lodge than a hotel room. Complimentary breakfast average, but certainly adequate. Plenty of parking and within 1-2 miles of the village of Ellicottville. BTW, Ellicottville is a fun, hopping village with plenty of pubs, restaurants, winery, brewery and gift shops.I call places like this "great 2 night visit towns" We were there last weekend in October so I am not sure how much busier it might be once skiing season begins, seems the whole area getting ready for that time of year
The hotel is clean, well maintained and charming. Beautiful peaceful surroundings adjacent to the ski slopes. Absolute top notch inside and out.
The only shortcoming, the property does not have a restaurant.
The rooms were a pleasant surprise. Well furnished with a coffee maker, refrigerator, but no microwave. Rooms were spacious with nice double sinks and separate shower area. Nice little balcony overlooking a courtyard with fire pits. Don’t know what the actual room cost was because it was in my golf package, but I would certainly stay again. The hotel is very near to town which has many trendy bars a restaurants.
