About Lynette Gerstel

This chalet has been in my family since 1966 when my parents built it. They did a huge addition/gut to it in the late 1980's. Recently my family purchased it from my parents. Our family loves to ski at Holimont and we have many happy memories! It is the type of place, that when you walk in the front door, your shoulders relax and you know it is time to enjoy the people around you!

Lynette Gerstel purchased this chalet in 2013

Why Lynette Gerstel chose Chautauqua Allegheny

Being able to ski in/ski out has been such a blessing to our family. Everyone can come and go as they please, lunch is always available in a crockpot to warm you up. It is also close to town. We have enjoyed taking care of the place and want others to enjoy it as well.

What makes this chalet unique

Hopefully you will find this place as relaxing and fun as we do. We try to make everything simple, fully equipped kitchen with extras. We even have a 3 pot crock pot that makes lunch a nice variety. Fire pit for time around the fire in the evening and nature all around you.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi there -

The kitchen had everything we needed and more - I definitely appreciated the paper plates and kitchen essentials (foil, plastic wrap...etc) that I forgot about. I did bring some Clorox wipes to ease clean-up but that's just my preference ;).

Bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect, nothing additional needed there.

We didn't end up using the outdoor fire pit because of the rainy conditions. We did fully utilize the living room fireplace though. My brother had some issues figuring out the correct direction for the flue handle but trial and error was just fine.

I did end up bringing stuff that I really didn't need (extra blankets, paper towels, dish soap...etc.) because I did not know you'd have everything available.

All-in-all, the place was great!

Thanks again!

It was the most relaxing and inviting home I have stayed in. We had an enjoyable vacation, even when the weather didn't cooperate. The owners were very responsive and answered any questions we had. We were also happy to take along our 9 year old dog, so she could enjoy the vacation with us, too.

The property was perfect for our large, family reunion.

  • 4 of 5

The common areas were large enough for conversation, games, and eating as a group. The fireplace provided warmth and coziness. Access to the slopes was great for skiing and sledding. Probably the best part of this rental was communication and accommodation with the owners. They were responsive to every request and went out of their way to make sure our stay was all we hoped for. We would recommend the property to any family wishing to enjoy being together and experiencing all Holimont and Ellicottville have to offer.

Wonderful chalet

  • 5 of 5

Excellent holiday chalet.

We had a wonderful 3 day stay just before Christmas. Magical with all the snow and I loved the open wood fire.

The younger ones loved the games room and use of free wifi.

The chalet has excellent facilities and is just as described.

The owner Lynette is very friendly and quick to respond to enquires and questions

I would definitely recommend for familes.

Great getaway weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Three couples had an awesome getaway weekend. Great place to relax and forget about life for a while. Would also be wonderful for the entire family. Plenty of room for the 6 of us with space for more. The Chalet was well stocked and clean. We only needed to bring ourselves. Would highly recommend this place for a quiet weekend or full blown family vacation. We will be back again!
