Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Annette!

Sorry for the late reply we got home pretty late on Sunday night.

We had an absolute blast in your wonderful cottage! :) We arrived Friday around 1 and skied all day and then went to the cottage for a large pizza extravaganza followed by a hot tub, music, dancing, pool games and to finish off the night we dug out the fire pit and have a great time around the flames! Saturday we woke up early for a good healthy breakfast and headed off to the slopes! We spent the day at the hill skiing, riding on the mountain roaster and at the bar with some great music from a local band. Then we headed back for another delicious dinner made in your well equipped kitchen! Sunday we made a feast in the morning and had a quick hot tub to relax one last night. What a beautiful view from the hot tub! What a great feature and addition to the cottage. We hit the slopes again all day Sunday as well and rented the picnic area on Mistletoe. We had a wonderful BBQ. If you have never tried that it is great! You call the customer service at Holiday Valley and ask to have a picnic on Mistletoe and give them the times you wish to be there. Then in the morning you go to the maintenance building and ask them to please drive your food, coals and drinks up for the time requested. It was a blast!

We absolutely enjoyed the entire weekend, your beautiful remote place and of course the challenge of trying to count how many roosters there were! :D

Thank you for all the tips, instructions and suggestions! We appreciate all the information and how well planned out you are!

Thank you so much! We would love to return!

Hilary and Group!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful! We were a small group of adults attending the Taste of Ellicottville, which we attend every year. In the past we have stayed in some local cabins, but the rain has taken the fun out of that. This is exactly what we were looking for with outdoor activities for the nice weather and indoor activities for rainy days. The neighbours were so friendly and offered assistance should we have any questions. The only feedback I could give for improvement would be to update the bed in the master was squeaky and not as comfortable as we would have liked. We cannot wait to plan our next get-together.

Family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

The Roosters Den was perfect for our family Christmas gathering. There were 13 of us(6 adults and 7 kids ages 11 to 17) and it felt like we had plenty of room to spare. The layout and the facility was ideal for the activities we enjoyed. The owners were responsive to any inquiries we made. If schedules permit the whole family will definitely be back for another stay at the Roosters Den next year.

Amazing rental property!

  • 5 of 5

This property over exceeded my expectations! I had such an easy and positive experience. We had a group of about 9 and there was plenty of room left over. The location was convenient yet private, which was perfect. I had great communication from Annette and Dave from the time of booking until we left the house. I would highly recommend this property with no hesitations!

Entertaining stay away

  • 5 of 5

We went here for a weekend family get together. The town does not have much for the kids to do but this house saved us! It was a very comfortable stay and literally had enough to help us entertain 6 kids ranging from 7-14 years of age. I loved how spaced out all the bedrooms too. Great stay. Would rent this place again.
