Hillside Retreat is a secluded yet comfy tiny house nestled in the trees overlooking a garden. The quiet country setting is located on the NY Amish Trail and is just minutes from the Equestrian Trail and hiking. Holiday Valley, Casino, National Comedy Center, Amish Shops, & Alleghany State Park make for a nice drive. Our rentals are located in a private setting surrounded by nature, shared by the family and other cabins. EV Charger is available.

The space
Welcome to Hillside Retreat, a place to escape from the world - to rest in a peaceful setting. The 14-acre property has several walking paths through the woods if you enjoy morning or evening walks. There are open lawn areas as well as wood areas for exploration. You may see the neighborhood deer on the lower lawn in the evening or early morning. The bunnies, deer, and turkey are very active on our property - you may see them in the garden and on the walking paths.

You are staying in a tiny house, but it is big on coziness. Due to the Tiny Home size, there is a full-size bed in the bedroom. If you need a Queen or King-size bed, please check out our other listings - The Cottage or The Chapel.

Throughout the Hillside Retreat, you will see white wood and plaid and rustic touches such as Amish-made Log Furniture. The trees help to keep the tiny house cool, but there is also a window AC unit if you need it a bit cooler. In early summer, you can enjoy watching the lightning bugs from the porch decks. This is your escape from the chaos of everyday life. Enjoy the rest, relaxation, and tranquility.

You may hear gunshots from target practice or game hunting during hunting season. Our property is in a rural setting, but hunting on our property isn't allowed.

This Hillside Retreat Tiny House boasts all the amenities you could need and décor to give you that country feel. It’s the perfect stay if you love modern amenities with country tranquility. There is one bedroom (with a double bed) and one bath. In the living room, there is a futon if needed – Let us know if you need extra linens for the futon.

Enjoy your coffee, a glass of wine, or a bottle of beer on the porch. There is a bistro table if you want to take your meals outside. There is a citronella pot to hold the flying pests at bay.

On the other side of the driveway is a firepit for your use. Usually, there is wood available for the pit, but give us a heads up, and we will make sure you have everything you need. We have specific blankets that you can curl up with at the firepit. Please use those (in a wicker basket near the sliding door) and not the tiny house. Relax in the chairs and make s’mores or star gaze.

The kitchenette is fully stocked (cookware/bakeware for the stove/toaster oven), service for four dinnerware, glasses/coffee mugs. There is a microwave and Keurig Coffee Maker for your use. Please note that there is only a 2-burner stovetop and a toaster oven - there isn't a full-size oven, but rather a toaster oven. We provide starter amounts of coffee pods, creamer, and sugar. Depending on your length of stay, you may need to pick up more.

Check with us if you would like to have the grill for your stay. We can have it set up for your visit. There is a bistro table and two chairs on the deck for outside dining.

The Hillside Retreat has a TV with an HDTV digital antenna to see the local stations and others (no cable or Wi-Fi at this time). You will find a selection of DVDs for your use if you want to relax with a movie. We have more choices in movies if you don't see something that interests you. Send us a quick text, and we can show you additional titles. There is usually cell service for most carriers – this is a true get-a-way.

There is a fireplace for you to enjoy with your evening beverage of choice and a good book or a movie. We provide a few games, puzzle books, and some reading material if you want to relax in front of the fire.

The washer and dryer are available on request. Please get in touch with owners regarding their use.

We just added a charge point EV charger for guests with electric cars.

We also use the units as a stay-cation; we are pet-free due to serious health issues. If you have a service animal, please let us know - thank you for understanding why we need to know.

Where you’ll be

Cherry Creek, New York, United States

You will be sharing the road with our Amish community. Keep an eye out for the horse and buggies, especially when it is dark. They will have a red caution triangle on the back of the buggy, but at night or in bad weather it can be difficult to see. Many will have lanterns on the side of the buggy, but they aren’t very bright.

We are just outside of the Hamlet of Cherry Creek; a small community with just one blinking light.

With just a drive you can also explore Ellicottville, Chautauqua, Niagara Falls, Buffalo, Lily Dale, Kinzua Dam, Salamanca, Chautauqua Lake, Cassadaga Lake, Erie - PA, Jamestown, Findley Lake - so many places to explore!

We live on the property, in case you need anything.

We live and work in the Cherry Creek, NY area. My wife Tamara and I would like to share our quiet, peaceful setting with those who would like to escape the city and technology. You can find me working at our hardware store just a mile down the road or puttering around the property.

During your stay

We would like to greet our guests at check-in, but there may be times that we are unable to. We will make sure the unit is ready for you in that case. The best way to reach us is through the Airbnb app. If you don't have it on your phone, please give us a heads up so we can make other arrangements for communication.

You may see us out and about on the property doing lawn care, gardening and maintenance. Please feel free to interact - we love to chat, but will also give you your privacy if that is what you need.

You can enjoy the walking paths on the property. We ask that you honor the posted signs of neighbors. There is a seasonal pond out back - just a short walk away. Because we are in a wooded area, you may need bug spray.

There is a garden you can enjoy. You will find a variety of flowers as well as seasonal fruit and veggies. You are welcome to sample the fruit/veggies.
