About

Located on a quiet street in the center of Ellicottville, our charming 1800’s Victorian Inn is a perfect refuge for memorable moments. Enjoy a romantic walk around the picturesque town or cozy up in front of the gas burning fireplace. You are within easy walking distance of restaurants, boutiques, and spas. We are only minutes away from Holiday Valley and HoliMont Ski Resorts. Built around 1835, the Inn has maintained its timeless features, now coupled with modern amenities. The house has been beautifully restored and furnished with antiques and reproductions. Relax in the elegant living room around the inviting fireplace, watch a movie in the TV room or rock in a chair on our wrap around porch and watch the town go by! For those needing relief from a day of strenuous activity, a hot tub is available on the back porch year round to soak away your aches. Choose to stay inside the Inn in a B&B room or in one of our efficiency suites. The B&B rooms, located on the second floor, include four tastefully decorated bedrooms and one luxury suite inviting you to experience both comfort and convenience during your stay. Each room is a combination of period antiques and incredibly comfortable beds and mattresses. Efficiency units are located at the side of the Inn overlooking the garden. These units are perfect for guests requiring additional privacy or for those traveling with young children or pets. Both have private baths with showers, sitting areas, kitchenettes, televisions, and telephones. You can enter these units privately from the Inn's covered porch. All rooms have a private full bath. A full gourmet breakfast is served for those staying inside the Inn. Just an hour south of Buffalo at the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains and only minutes from Allegany State Park, the Jefferson Inn is also close to the Nannen Arboretum, Seneca Allegany Casino, Amish country, Griffis Sculpture Park, Chautauqua Institution, and a host of antique shops and museums.

Perfect B&B

4.8 on October 09, 2014

My husband and I stayed in the Fraser Room. Beautiful decor, extremely comfortable bed, quiet. We enjoyed sitting on the spacious porch which provided the peaceful place we needed. Jean and staff (plus Ellie of course) could not have been more warm, welcoming and helpful. Minor disappointment was the out-of-service jacuzzi but there was so much to see in and around Ellicottville it didn't really matter. We will definitely return to this lovely B&B.


"THE BEST"

Lovely Inn Right in the Village

5 on October 05, 2013

We stayed at the Jefferson Inn and could not rave enough about it! The Inn is tucked right in the village in easy walking distance to all of the restaurants. We were greeted with a smile, a quick tour and a restaurant recommendation. Breakfast was nothing short of amazing, and the owner spent most of it talking about the fascinating history of her ownership of the Inn. We will definitely be back for more weekends away!


Best B&B in Ellicottville, NY

5 on September 24, 2013

Want the perfect B&B when visiting Holiday Valley then look no more. The Jefferson Inn is perfect. Great location in downtown Ellicottville. Park you car and walk to everything. The owner, Jean along with her faithful companion "Ellie" the dog will make you feel right at home. Bring your appetite because Jean prepares a wonderful breakfast each morning between 8:30 and 9:30. I won't spoil her menu, just trust us, the food is very good. Sit back, relax and enjoy a piece of history at the Jefferson Inn.


The perfect place to stay

5 on September 14, 2013

Location .....Check Service......Check Price........Check Everything you are looking for in aB&B I took my wife there for her birthday and now she is hooked. Close to skiing close to golfing close to the "adault night life " can not beat it. And it smells like cookies 24/7 I loved it. Cant wait to book a trip in the winter for skiing.


Wonderful weekend

5 on August 18, 2013

We just came back from a two night stay at the Inn. What a wonderful experience. The owners, staff, and even Elli (the house dog), were all very polite, helpful, and had great hospitality. We will definitely come back. The town of Ellicottville was so quaint and the Inn was walking distance to everything. Ate and drank all weekend but enjoyed every moment of it. Thanks again Jefferson Inn!!!


One of the best B&B's (Inns) we've stayed inn.........

5 on June 12, 2013

The photo album to the right says it all: beautiful setting, GREAT dog Elli, lovely home, comfortable and clean rooms, located in town but not near the traffic. And the breakfast, too die for! Could say more and more and more, but you get what I'm talking about. We will be back. If you come to up-state New York, go to The Jefferson Inn in Ellicottville,NY. You will be pleased!


Loved our little getaway!

4.6 on March 21, 2013

My husband and I planned a little two night ski getaway and after doing some looking for accommodations I came across the Jefferson Inn online. I loved the look of the place right away and knew I wanted to visit. We loved it and will be returning. The location is great to be able to walk to the shops and restaurants. Jean is great and very helpful and makes a wonderful breakfast! It was above and beyond what I could have imagined. The rooms are quaint and so peaceful. The hot tub was one of the big factors for us booking here as nothing like a rest after a long day on the hills. Can't wait to go back!


Room at the Inn

5 on January 04, 2013

We planned a skiing get-away over Christmas break. Initially, we tried to get a room at one of the ski lodges, but GRATEFULLY they were all filled, and we found our way to the Jefferson Inn B&B! The first word that I thought of when I entered the Jefferson Inn was charming! It was charming, welcoming & clean, the staff was friendly, and the food was delicious . . .we especially loved the cookies! We will stay there again, and again!!!
