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 booked at the Inn as many of the guests did. Everyone was very nice and helpful. They even offered my wife motrin (free) when she mentioned she had a headache. So thoughtful. Rooms are nice and the patio was great. I was not sure if wood was available for the fire on the patio or what - you may want to check if you plan on using it. Shower and bathroom were clean. Breakfast was very nice, with everything from bagels and english muffins to sausage and other breakfast items. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and are planning on coming back for a longer weekend with the kids. Pool looked very nice!
Enjoyed our stay at the Inn during the month of August and found it to be very clean and accommodating, and has a pleasant setting. It's located approximately 10 minutes drive time for accessing the shops & restaurants downtown. They had a complimentary buffet breakfast which included protein, cereal, beverages, breads & fruit. We would go back again.
Just took my 7 year old nephew to this great place for a night. We will be back next time for longer. It was very reasonable and he loved the indoor out door pool, plus having access to the pool complex. The room was large, but rustic with some bugs definitely visiting. We both enjoyed the chairs on the patio behind the room, nice quiet out food space. Only negative is that the pool complex only opens at noon during the week.
