Carolyn and Larry,

Just wanted to let you know we enjoyed our stay this week even more than we did at Thanksgiving time. Maybe because we stayed another night this time, or because we felt even more at home.Whatever this reason, we want to thank you for opening your home to us and thank you for the wonderful time.,

Jerry and Debbie,  St Louis MO.


Dear Carolyn and Larry

We wanted to email you our review from our stay on our Wedding Anniversary weekend in Ellicottville.

We found the Manor House on a reccommendation from a friend of ours, I am glad we chose to stay with you. The property was tucked away, private and serene, Loved the country feel and visiting with the horses, the resident doggie and the spoiled Donkey :)   Carolyn was very welcoming when we arrived, showing us around and giving us lots of information about the place. We found the room to be quaint and cozy but not overly gaudy with my Grandmother's wallpaper, which is what we often find when looking for B&B's. The antique bed was gorgeous and generously sized king. Bathroom was stocked with amenities and towels, shower was wonderful with the handheld showerhead. The soaking hot tube was lovely ,we didn't have time to go in, but it is on the top of our list for next time, what a fabulous ingenious idea by Larry.The atmoshere was very relaxing and soothing. No cell service was exactly what we needed to get away and put down our phones for awhile. We selected a movie from Larry's collection to watch is our room at night. Easy 10 min drive to Ellicottville. My favorite part was Caroyln's homemade blueberry pancakes for breakfast ,blueberries straight form the garden. Thanks you for having us for the weekend, we will definitely be coming back again soon.

I just wanted to say thank you. My husband and I had an amazing stay for our 10 year anniversary. You made us feel right at home in your beautiful home. Brandon had never stayed at a B&B, and absolutely loved the Manor House. Breakfast was great, but I think my favorite part was the soaking tub. After our day at the aerial Park, it put the cherry on top of my day. The horse barn was abolutely breathtaking. Your family has an amaazing piece of property. We wilkl be back to stay real soon. So Thanks again. And talk to you real soon.

I can't wait to plan our next visit to Ellicottville..because now I know I have a place to stay where I'll feel at home.  Again, thank you for providing excellent hospitality and we will be seeing you in the future!

Had a very peaceful, quiet stay at your B&B. Will plan to return w/my husband and also tell others about your place.
Appreciated that you showed me where everything was located and offered me the use of the living room and such, but found my bedroom very comfortable and spacious on it's own.

Thank You,

The embroidered sheets and pillowcases as well as the fresh flowers in the guest room and dining table were a delightful surprise.

The Hot Tub area was serene and relaxing.

The "in house"  massage was greatly appreciated.

All in all, this was a pleasant, relaxing and very enjoyable visit !

Thanks a million,

Hi Carolyn,
Just a quick e-mail to say thanks again for having us – we needed that little get-away so much and your place was perfect!

Plus, we enjoyed learning about how it all got started and enjoyed talking – breakfast was great, too…we’re hoping we can come down again in the fall…

Thanks again!

Hello Carolyn, Larry & Hemmy,

I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much fun Paul and I had staying with you during the different seasons of 2007. I can not wait to get back there for 2008.

The wonderful atmosphere and all the ducks, horses, and of course Hemmy. They were all wonderful and that especially goes for you and Larry. This was mine and Paul's first stay at a Bed & Breakfast, and I really do not see us staying any where else.

We love Ellicottville and all the events they have and when we found you place we could not believe how close to all the action your little place in the woods is. Also, the best part is when you want to get away from the action you can. We had a blast riding the golf cart around the property. We were able to see so much and enjoy it so much more this way.

Paul and I found the Manor House in 2006 when we just wanted to get away for the Fall Festival. After our wonderful greeting and our very wonderful stay, we have been back to the Manor House about 5 more times. We have found this to be our hide away from the world. We are in the age group of 40 something, so anyone around that age group I think you would have a wonderful stay here.

Again I would like to say thank you Carolyn and Larry for the best time and hopefully more to come.

We should be seeing you very soon......

Tamme and Paul
