I had the occasion to stay here this summer, when my band, The Olmsted Dub System performed a show at the gazebo. The Jefferson Inn is an outstanding choice for accommodation in Ellicottville. It is centrally located, the furnishings are spot on, the rooms are comfortable and the breakfast is great! Our hostess Jean provided generous accommodations for my musical gear and was so helpful in getting us information about what restaurants were open (Covid rules) and was very forthcoming when asked about the history if the inn, etc. We are frequent visitors to Ellicottville and will definitely book a stay here again! You should book your stay as well, you will not be disappointed!!

Jean is an excellent hostess. The attention she gives to every detail in the Jefferson Inn is admirable. There is a comfortable feel to the B&B and an elegance at the same time. The breakfasts are delicious. The B&B is immaculately clean and there are many efforts made to sanitize considering the current COVID climate ,as well as follow state laws regarding wearing masks. It was absolutely perfect. Jean is great conversationalist and is very good at making you feel at home and anticipating your needs. The B&B is highly secure with attention being paid to locking doors as well as the State Police department location directly across the parking lot. I highly recommend the Jefferson Inn. Oh, and Gypsy, Jeans dog, is an absolute delight.

Our hostess Jean was friendly and welcoming. The inn was clean and quiet. We stayed in the Elizabeth Hickey lavender room which cozy and clean. We were within walking distance to an ice cream shop, restaurants and the Elicottville Brewery. We sat on the inn’s porch and listened to a band in the town’s gazebo across the street. Breakfast was delicious and healthy.

If you want a special overnight or group stay this is the place. Right in the village the house is in great condition inside and out. Whole place is super clean and furnished with antique furniture. Room was very comfortable as well as common places on first floor. Jean the owner is on-site and is a wonderful host and cook for the three course breakfast. Gypsy the dog is very easy going and friendly. This place is walking distance from all the restaurants in the village and is close by Holiday Valley Ski Resort.

My husband and I loved our stay at the Jefferson Inn! The staff was extremely friendly and made us feel at home. Gypsy (the owner's dog) was also extremely friendly and lovable! Our breakfast was delicious and filling, the hot tub was relaxing, and all of the amenities we needed were right there. The owner gave us some great tips to plan our adventures at breakfast, and it was so nice to be able to easily walk to all of the restaurants and bars since the inn is right in town. My only tips are to bring your own conditioner because there only appeared to be shampoo, and the beds might be a little short if you are tall (I'm 5'2" and was fine, but my 5'10" husband said his feet were off of the edge. But honestly, it was a great stay and we hope to be back sometime in the future!
