This is the second time we stayed there. Friendly owners, private heated pool and great location. The only negatives would be spotty wifi and just the basic local channels on TV. This may be because we were in the attached private cottage. The other thing was breakfast. When we went to breakfast the first morning, the owner said we had not signed up for it on the web site when we booked the room. And it was an extra $20 per night. Went back and tried to find this on the site but was unable to find this option. It did say we could get $15 off a night if we DON'T eat breakfast but I'm not sure if we ever received it. Anyway, I would check with them to make sure if you are getting it or not. Overall though nice place to stay and we had fun!

My husband and I stayed in the cottage for our 3rd anniversary in 2007, so we decided to book it again for our 13th. The inn had new owners this time, but Rick and Glenda were very nice and accommodating. We had a couple of electrical issues when we arrived. The A/C didn't work, the bathroom lights and most of the top outlets were also out, but Rick was able to fix them.
They have a beautiful heated pool, which we loved.

The only issue that was confusing is that apparently we were supposed to sign up for breakfast when we registered online, but the website says breakfast is included, and there's a "no breakfast discount" mentioned on the website, but it says you have to select that option. I didn't select anything because it said breakfast was included, but we didn't get breakfast or the discount.

The Ilex Inn is on the market again due to bad winters that didn't bring in the skiers and the Canadian dollar.

We have stayed here a couple times, last time was with family for a Memorial Service in a near by town. The Inn is quiet, relaxing and the owners are super friendly and fun. The rooms are nicely decorated, with comfortable beds, pillows, private bathrooms with a great shower with lots of pressure. It is clean, and has a beautiful wrap around porch to relax on. It is a short walk to town so you can get to the shops and restaurants.

Breakfasts if you want it, are simply amazing, they even can cater to Gluten Free if needed. We had everything from Blueberry Pancake to breakfast pie.

Can't wait to stay here again.

We were so surprised that with a room on the front of the house (Van Buren) that it would be so quiet. It is right off the main road (Rt 219). I slept like a rock. Comfy bed. Super hot shower with plenty of pressure. Large bathroom for the size of the room. The room is also a nice size. Tv, ac, vented fireplace, queen sized bed and end tables. Hosts were very accommodating. Wish we would have had time to take advantage of the gorgeous hot tub. What a lovely yard behind the house. Hope to come back when the pool is open. Too cold to swim now. The Inn is a short and flat walk to downtown Ellicotville. Great location. Wonderful Inn.
