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 chalet in 2005

Why Eva Knof chose New York

This is a super deal for families with kids and sport and adventure seekers!

Very fun. Great lot and set up.

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!!!

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.

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.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Beautiful lot with lots of wildlife. Looks like they have a slalom course on the hill in the winter. Would have liked to know where to take the garbage when we left!

Great place for family

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was just as expected beautiful property and enough room for a big family we all really enjoyed are stay. Eva accommodated our request for linens because we flew in from Calif and that made us all comfortable our family had a nice meeting place to sit and be together that was all I could ask for

The only flaw we would have appreciated some notice on the no toilet paper allowed down the toilet rule

Had a great stay
