My wife and I recently spent a romantic weekend in Ellicottville at the Sugar Pine Lodge and would strongly recommend it. The B&B was easy to book online; we chose the Wendell Suite with about 2 months lead time. The B&B is well situated about 0.5 km from the village centre and at the base of one of the Holiday Valley ski hills. Picking up the keys from their agent was simple and efficient.
We arrived at the B&B to find a room that exceeded expectations, even though they were already high. The Wendell suite consists of a bedroom, sitting room, small kitchenette and full bathroom. Decorated tastefully with a mix of antiques and classic furniture, we enjoyed sipping a glass of wine by the gas fireplace in the sitting room. The bed was very comfortable, fine cotton bedding and a warm, cozy duvet. Shortbread treats were provided each night supplemented by tea, coffee or hot chocolate options for the in-room kettle.
As impressive as the room was, Chef Scott's breakfasts were fantastic. He is an outgoing individual who displays a passion for his work. His loves cooking and people... bring the two together and he is definitely in his element. Every breakfast offered juice, yogurt, cereals breads and cookies. Day 1 was a Chef Scott version of a croissandwich - fried egg, sausage mixture topped with a croissant and cheese. Day 2, Chef Scott cooked up an apple stuffed French toast with sausage and home fries. Both breakfasts were delish.
All in all, we had a great weekend and look forward to returning to Sugar Pine Lodge again.
