Travel to the foothills of the Allegany Mountains and check in to one of the hotels near Ellicottville, NY. There are countless adventures to be found amid these rolling hills in any season, and the wise wanderer knows better than to fret too much about what those adventures will be. As John Steinbeck wrote, "A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it." Relax and enjoy the trip, whatever comes. It can seem hard not knowing what's in store, but the journey fate delivers is always worth it when you relinquish your expectations beforehand.
Travelers love staying in hotels in Ellicottville, NY because of its proximity to Holiday Valley, an excellent place for skiing. Rent a pair of skis and ride the lift to the top. Enjoy the crisp mountain air and the view from the top for a while before hitting the slopes. When you do, make your first run down the eastern-facing Morning Star route to feel the sun's first rays warm your face. If the weather isn't cooperating, don't worry; if skiing isn't in season, you can always enjoy the Happy Wanderer walking trail along the ridgeline. Besides, as Lao Tzu said, "A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving." The universe will provide you the adventure your spirit needs. By the time you return to one of our Ellicottville hotels in the evening, perhaps you'll understand why you were given the experiences you had.
