Allegany State Park Rental in the Forest

Ski-in/ski-out access for family fun on the slopes
Important before booking: See end of description for updated COVID 19 News.

With a pond on one side and a mountain stream on the other, and surrounded by forest, this is the place to get away from it all. Heated Saltillo Tiles in well appointed kitchen, two full bathrooms, with a piano and pool table for your amusement. Oak and cherry flooring and wood work complements the totally renovated interior. Cross the bridge over the stream, and you are on your way to a beautiful hike in New York State's largest Park.

Two new electric reclining top grain leather couches were delivered 2/2020. Very comfortable, room for three on each with ease. Also an electric recliner. So movie watching just got upgraded!

There is a firepit, gas grill, an offset smoker/grill, and coolers that you can borrow. You can while away your evenings, telling ghost stories, roasting wienies or making s'mores over a crackling fire. Kindling is steps away and firewood is available on site.

We are also children and (mellow) dog friendly---absolutely no pits, pit mixes or aggressive dogs allowed due to past incidents of mischaracterized dogs. Our dog is friendly to people and other dogs; she runs free, and sticks around (a great life). More than 6 people, or more than 3 cars, is not within our capabilities.

IMPORTANT: We have a well, and unlike city living, the water supply is not endless. It is good water, but, for example, long showers by guests strain the supply. The well needs to replenish. Any action that can conserve water, such as utilizing the shower quick shutoff valve on the shower head, spacing out showers, is appreciated. Country living does have a few constraints!

Important! Note that I charge additional for guests numbering more than 4, at 20 dollars per night per person, up to 6. Dogs are 10 dollars per night per dog. I'd be more than happy to explain my rationale for these extra costs if you are wondering why. Also very important: Absolutely NO SMOKING or VAPING inside the house. Ashtrays are provided for smoking outdoors, thanks for being considerate of other guests in this regard it is deeply appreciated!

15 Minutes from Ellicottville's skiing (consistently ranked highly in Ski Magazine) and 5 minutes from the Seneca Allegany Casino (with its entertainment and dining excellence), you have vacation options galore. In addition, the hosts offer uniquely distinctive cultural, historical and entertainment diversions upon request including immersion in Seneca, Amish and Appalachian culture. If interested, owners will send an information packet outlining the opportunities that await, including options that will impress even the most seasoned of travelers.

The house has a 65 inch screen smart TV in the living room and a smart 49 inch one in the 2nd floor master bathroom, which has an attached deck. DIRECTV provides viewing pleasure; it is a basic service, so bring your Netflix, Amazon, etc. passwords with you.

Three bedrooms with beds as follows: one King, one Queen, one Full. Both bathrooms are spacious, one upstairs and one downstairs, and the open floor plan with no walls between the Oak Room (with pool table), kitchen and living room make socializing ideal.

Beautiful hiking, with Art Roscoe's ski/bike/hike trails and Stone Tower, with its stunning views, but a short distance away. There are 5 mountain streams, with no habitation upstream, in the back 40, which is surrounded by Allegany State Park. You can pitch your tent nearby and still be able to use the facilities; perfect for a family.

Update August 4, 2020. The Camp is in southern Cattaraugus County, in Allegany State Park. I am monitoring all COVID information for this region and will follow all state and professional health and legal guidelines in order to make my guests' visits both enjoyable and safe. I will no longer have check-in and check out on the same day, I will have a three day cushion between visitors so that I can thoroughly clean and sanitize the house. When someone books, I block off the three days before and after their stay.

Important!! New York State currently has regulations for most out of state visitors. A quick Google search is in order: AARP, and others, have informative COVID travel guides that deals with all states. I will adhere to all legal requirements. As we know the COVID situation is very fluid, and changes daily. I have blocked off days to allow for self sanitizing before I go in. These blocks are not set in stone, I've blocked off days during the week that may be available, contact me if you see your days blocked, they may be available.

I also ask that people bring their own pillows and blankets, though I will provide them if absolutely necessary. Let me know in advance. I rotate two sets of sheets for each bed and they are washed and dried at higher heats than in the old days.

Guests will be, in essence, at a quarantine facility. You will not have to worry about interacting with people once you arrive. I would strongly advise to bring whatever food you need before you get here, as well as proper PPE (mask) which is required in NYS in all public places.

All that said, this is a great place to forget about COVID, if only for a short while. Nature is therapeutic, and you walk out the door and hike immediately. A crackling fire at night. Feeding fish in the pond. You will feel rejuvenated. Just be safe before you get here, always error on the side of caution in what you do, and finally, thank you for your business. With everyone rowing in the same direction, we will overcome adversity as we have so many times in the past.

Rooms open to patios. Bathrooms include a combined bath/shower unit.
