A group of 17 family members ranging in age 1yr to 85 yr. there is golf, zip lining, beautiful pool, hiking areas, and in winter, fabulous ski resort. We rented 3 different townhomes through Holiday Valley rental agency.

When we are on road trips, I try to find lodging off the beaten paths. On a recent trip through New York, I found Holiday Valley Resort. Mostly a ski and golf resort, the hotel offers comfortable, if not charmingly dated, rooms with nice balconies and lovely views. They do not offer room service, but we picked up a delicious... More

Weekend trip in a rental house. Glad to find this pool/recreation center to keep the kids busy. Two large pools, one with a decent slide and diving board. Also 1 kiddie pool. Nice bar, plenty of pool side seats...some in the shade! Poolside lunch is available...although the menu is odd with a beet salad, & mussels....but there is also a... More

During our stay in Ellicottville we golfed at Elkdale Country Club (pretty nice), and also at Holiday Valley's Double Black Diamond Golf course. As a couple who love to golf, we look forward to challenging golf courses that can accommodate a man's long hitting, but also has forgiving forward tee locations for me, to keep the game a bit more...

It's all year round fun. In the winter you can ski/snowboard, go in the hot tub, and go on the mountain coaster. Meanwhile in the summer you can swim in the pool, go mountain biking, go on the mountain coaster, climb though the trees in the sky high adventure park and much more! It has a very nice atmosphere and... More

Played in a recent golf outing and very disappointed in the condition of the course. I know there has been a lot put into it, but isn't close to what it needs to be for a resort course. The service and food for the banquet was solid but couldn't overcome the deficit the golf created.

If I hadn't been invited to a wedding in town I would not have thought of coming to Ellicottville or Holiday Valley since I don't ski or golf. There is much more to do though than those two mainstays. They have hiking, mountain biking, zip lining and a lot of other outdoorsy activities nearby or on site. It's not very... More

Holiday Valley is my home mountain. I have snowboarded all over North America and I still love riding at Holiday Valley. The variety of terrain is great. You can ride and ski in the woods anywhere you want which is great to have that freedom. Not to mention the incredible amount of lake effect snow/powder we get here. Ellicottville is... More

the lift ticket customer service lady was heartless. with no explanation or warning she voided a 10 pass card because we thought it was okay for another family member to use it. Instead of warning us of this, she voided it then made us pay for a ticket. On the back of the card is no mention of this voiding... More
