This was our first foray into the B&B world. We usually stay at hotels with pools and hot tubs. Well, this had both plus the intimate feel we were looking for in a small town. Rick and Glenda went out of their way to make us feel as if we were family. Their homemade breakfast, included, was scrumptious and well balanced. The room, with private bath, was clean and tastefully decorated. While there are many places in the old house to relax, my favorite was the upstairs living room- quiet, cozy (with a coffeemaker!!!) and quite charming. We were within walking distance of the village where we spent most of our time sd there is so much to do in Ellicottville. I've recommended The Ilex Inn to many people!
