This lovely B&B was perfect for a recent birthday weekend celebration with family. Rick and Glenda are friendly and informative hosts, and this B&B is close to everything Ellicottville has to offer. Will definitely return, and highly recommend to others.

The owners are amazing, hospitable and welcome with open arms. They'll tell you all about the sights and attractions in Ellicottville and really make the stay on this town worthwhile!... More

Having been to Ellicottville several times and we truly enjoy the whole town and what is has to offer. It was one of the final weekends of the Ski season and many places previously stayed were booked. We were so fortunate to have found the ILEX. Their motto of “come as guests and leave as friends” is true to who... More

Nice little Bed and Breakfast just outside of downtown Ellicottville. A short walk to all the bars and restaurant at a very affordable price. Rooms are all unique, cozy and cute as are all the common rooms. Breakfast included and made to order by owners. Owners are very nice and welcoming. If you are looking for a place where you... More

We had a wonderful time at the Ilex Inn! Cozy, warm room with a nice fireplace and plenty of space. The decor in the Van Buren room was homey and perfect for our trip. Breakfast was great every morning, and we were so happy with the friendly atmosphere of the place. This was our first time in Ellicottville and our... More

Just before New Years, we made our third visit to the Ilex Inn. This time, instead of a romantic getaway, we brought our daughters, 24 and 19. We weren't sure if they wanted to be 'where the action was' instead of a beautiful quiet inn, where a good night sleep is a given. (Not to mention the tasty, plentiful breakfasts,... More

My husband and I have been enjoing ourselves at the Ilex Inn for years! Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring and we love it there every time. The Inn is by far one of the most charming B&B's that we have ever stayed in. I think at this point there may only be one room we haven't stayed in (love the... More

Had an awesome time! Rick and Glenda were wonderful hosts! Very welcoming and friendly atmosphere. Breakfast was excellent! Kennedy cottage and hot tub were exactly what we needed and the 5 minute walk to Eville was perfect! We plan on coming back multiple times a year, this will be our new home away from home!

The innkeepers are very nice and friendly. I did find the inn to be in need of updating. The comforter on our bed had a stain which is a big turn off for me. There were what looked like coffee stains splashed on the stairs going upstairs. I think they need to do a look around to see where things... More

Hi, so sorry about the bed spread...We wish you would have told us and it would have been changed immediately. I can assure you it was clean, must have slipped by on us. The coffee stain happened the weekend you were here and has since been cleaned up. It is difficult to keep up with the carpet on the stairs... More

Just got back from a weekend getaway at the Ilex Inn. My wife and I were first timers at a bed and breakfast and this could not have been a better initial experience. The inn was so relaxing from the pool, morning coffee in the hot tub and reading the paper on the front porch. Rick and Glenda were superb... More
