My husband and I had a great stay at this B&B Mar 1-4. Beautiful lodge, delicious breakfasts and very thoughtful hosts. We enjoyed the fireplace in the common room a lot! Felt very much at home. We had car trouble and Lynda was just great, even offered to give us a ride to ski hill. Thank you Lynda for your... More

A Beautiful, well-run, well-kept and quiet place. The room and common area are always clean. Breakfast was served on-time with freshly ground coffee every day. Only 8-10 minutes from the Holiday Valley Ski resort. I was glad that The Inn was sold out otherwise we would not have found this gem! I requested gluten-free diet and there was specially cake...

My husband & I just returned from the Black Dog Lodge during Blues Weekend 1/4/14. We were greeted within minutes by the owner, Linda, who is very gracious and accommodating. She oriented us to the lodge and surrounding area and asked if we had any special needs or food allergies. Gratis toiletries were of high quality and environmentally sensitive. The... More

Great location near Holiday Valley. The warm welcome & hospitality was just what we needed after a long week of travel and hitting the slopes. We stayed in the master suite and were impressed greatly with the comfort and size. Bathroom had heated floors and a perfect tub for soaking in. Kitchen stocked with all necessary amenities and living room... More

The black Dog probably deserves 3.5 or a good rating but there were a few things that I just can't get over. First I will say this this is a very cute and clean BB. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious. When we finally met the owner she was very friendly. We made of reservation on the day we planned... More

linda m, Owner at Black Dog Lodge, responded to this review

When guests arrive after the appropriated check in time they are checked in over the phone. If they arrive late maybe following skiing, late dinner etc., they often will miss the common room, especially if they are upstairs. Our check out time is 11am so there is always time following breakfast, to enjoy the amenities. I am very sorry these... More

My wife and I stayed one night at Black Dog Lodge on the pre-Thanksgiving weekend -- in addition to being the weekend before Thanksgiving, we had a bit of a snow storm and so the town and the lodge were quiet -- in fact we had the lodge all to ourselves. The lodge is meticulously maintained, very tastefully decorated in... More

We stayed here during the Ellicottville Beer and Wine Festival. We are new to Bed and Breakfasts, but it exceeded all expectations! We traveled with another couple and both rooms were very clean and comfortable. Our hosts were friendly and helpful with ideas for places to try. Breakfast was amazing! Would recommend staying here to anyone who is looking for... More
