Holiday reservations down in Ellicottville


ELLICOTTVILLE, NY - Because of the dry and warm conditions, hotels in Ellicottville are finding fewer people are making reservations for the holidays.

In some cases, hotels are finding people are starting to cancel their reservations for Christmas week, which tends to be the busiest time in the village for tourism, when hotels are ordinarily booked solid.

The owner of the Illex Inn, Rick Jackson, says the bed and breakfast has only booked a couple of reservations for Christmas week. Jackson says in general business has been pretty stagnant, given that only two rooms have been booked in the last two weeks.

Jackson says usually if there's no snow during this time of year, people tend to shy away from booking rooms.
