About Eva Knof

Our cabin is owned by a group of 4 active families with kids. We love to ski, mountain bike, hike and take in the local cultural events that Ellicottville and its beautiful surrounding area has to offer. We enjoy the cabin off season just as much.

Eva Knof purchased this cabin in 2005

My family and I loved this vacation rental. It was a nice weekend away with the adults. We can't wait to bring the kids back with us next time! I would recommend this place to anyone!

Ok for the cost

  • 3 of 5

Nice cabin, very clean. Eva was super great to communicate with. The beds were very comfortable. Some major drawbacks that we didn’t know about until after we booked. No toilet paper in the toilet, and no flushing the toilet unless necessary. This was gross. No one enjoyed emptying the bathroom garbage. We were not aware of this until after we had paid. The water had a strong sulfur smell. The driveway was all mud. I had to vacuum and scrub and wash my vehicle numerous times (3x through a car wash!) to try to clean some of the mud away. It snowed and then was plowed and wasn’t terribly cold, therefore everything in the driveway was mud. Overall, the cabin was adorable, a cute creek alongside it and everything was very clean inside. I just want to mention the few drawbacks. Again, Eva was very pleasant to deal with and I wish my review could be better because she was so sweet.

My family loved the house! The only thing I did not like was the bunk bed rail was supper shaky so we were down one bed on top and the house was somewhat messy like the frig it had a lot of food and sticky stuff! Also the kitchen sink leaked! Other then that it was so quite and peaceful!

Owner's Response: Dear Rachel, I am happy to hear that you loved our cabin. Our apologies for not having it cleaned to your satisfaction - we hired a new cleaning company, and they obviously did not meet the standards that we expected, so we have since found a more professional cleaning crew. According to them, they only had 2 hours between your group and the previous renters, so clearly it was not sufficient time. We have decided not to do same day check-ins and check-outs for this reason from here on. The bunk bed railing has now been repaired (it was just a lose screw), as well as the kitchen plumbing (somehow the plumbing got bumped under the sink, but thankfully it was a simple fix.). A quick phone call to any of us would have resolved this very quickly. We hope to host your group again in the future and will do everything possible to ensure that you have a problem-free stay next time. Warm regards. Eva.

We really enjoyed our stay. The fire pit was huge. A gas grill was on the property with extra propane tanks. They had a large movie selection. Would definitely stay again!!!

Really nice cottage

  • 4 of 5

There was more then enough space for everyone to sleep comfortably. There's no cell service near the cottage (depending on the provider) but that didn't bother us. Kitchen comes with all the appliances you'll need. Would definitely stay again.
