Gail and I headed to Ellicottville for a quick winter get-away. A one night stay at the Black Dog Lodge http://www.blackdoglodge.com. Our hosts Linda and Rick Miester and their 2 dogs Max and Angus were wonderful. If you are ever in Ellicottville and need a place to stay, look no further. A ride on Holiday Valley’s mountain coaster http://www.holidayvalley.com/HolidayValley/info/mountain-coaster.aspx and catching up with friends made for a great time.
