Situated 55 miles south of Buffalo, New York, and within easy driving distance of major cities like Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Toronto, Holiday Valley Resort is a small, family-friendly resort with a large fan following. In winter, families flock to the Western New York resort for great skiing and snow tubing, the latter located at a separate park situated a few miles from the main property. Spring, summer and fall bring more outdoor adventures, including swimming, mountain biking and golf, as well as a ropes course and mountain coaster rides at the newly opened Sky High Aerial Adventure Park.
Onsite accommodation options include the Inn at Holiday Valley and Tamarack Club, a ski-in, ski-out condominium style lodging with a heated indoor-outdoor pool.

We booked at the Inn as many of the guests did. Everyone was very nice and helpful. They even offered my wife motrin (free) when she mentioned she had a headache. So thoughtful. Rooms are nice and the patio was great. I was not sure if wood was available for the fire on the patio or what - you may want to check if you plan on using it. Shower and bathroom were clean. Breakfast was very nice, with everything from bagels and english muffins to sausage and other breakfast items. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and are planning on coming back for a longer weekend with the kids. Pool looked very nice!
Enjoyed our stay at the Inn during the month of August and found it to be very clean and accommodating, and has a pleasant setting. It's located approximately 10 minutes drive time for accessing the shops & restaurants downtown. They had a complimentary buffet breakfast which included protein, cereal, beverages, breads & fruit. We would go back again.
