Black Dog Lodge
Reviewed January 4, 2014

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 big enough for visitors. We wish we could have stayed longer than one night! Breakfast was outstanding - a sit down with a few of the other couples that was full of homemade pancakes, bacon, yogurt/fruit, muffins, juice, coffee and good company. We'll be back to stay again for sure!

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 to stay but no one was at the BB when we got there. We were told over the phone how to find our room. I'm just used to a friendlier greeting when staying at a BB. There was a really cute common room with fire plce that e didn't find until the next morning. It would have been nice to use the night before. We also had problems with our shower but no one was there to help.
The lodge is located in a lovely secluded spot. We came to Ellicotville for skiing and the lodge is a drive from the mountain and the town.
I think was a very nice spot but it just didn't meet our expectations.

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 guests were not happy, but I do hope they will give us another chance

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 a sort of mountain lodge motif and very very comfortable and relaxing. Rick and Linda were gracious hosts who we very much enjoyed chatting with. We felt very much at home and quite well cared for. We highly recommend the Black Dog and will be back!

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 a place to stay in Ellicottville. Thank you Linda and Rick!

Stayed in the pet friendly Dog House. LARGE suite with plenty of room for our bulldog and us. Owners couldn't be nicer and more than accomodating. Even offfered to take our dog out for a walk while we were attending our event. Less than 5 miles outside of Ellicottville, NY. Fresh baked comfort goods every day. Wish we could have stayed longer.
