The Jacks Family | Hamilton, Ontario

Within minutes of our arrival at Lofty Mountain, we knew it was the place for us. We were looking for a relaxing getaway, with outdoors space and 4-season activity. The look of the chalets perfectly suited our taste and gave us plenty of space for our family of 6.

We fully trusted Mike with the construction of our chalet. When someone is so invested and passionate about their craft, and you have seen their work, it is very comfortable to follow their lead. The building process was straight-forward and Mike made it painless and anxiety-free.
It has been a pleasure to share the place with our family and friends.

The floor plan allows for two families to stay with comfort and privacy which makes hosting guests even more fun. We have enjoyed the trails, campfires, swimming in the pond, BBQs on the deck, visiting Allegany State Park, and of course the skiing. Lofty Mountain provides needed reminders of what quiet sounds like in the evening, what stars look like at night and how birds sound in the morning.

While we are fairly knew to Lofty, we anticipate many years of fun, relaxation and growing up together as a family. We are thankful to Mike for building a place that is a perfect fit for our family.

“This won’t be the right place for everyone, but if its right for you … you’ll know”
There is something about Lofty Mountain that sticks with you. Mike has realized a vision that combines exceptional craftsmanship, attention to detail, traditional virtues, community stewardship, and a connection to nature that is unique. After searching the usual spots, our search for a weekend ski chalet brought us to Ellicottville, and subsequently to Lofty. What Mike has been able to accomplish here is hard to explain, but when you experience it, when we experienced it, we knew this would be our home.

We had never built a home before and didn’t know what to expect.

Mike truly made the process a joy, and the last year has flown by. Mike has a clear idea of what he is trying to create, but he was willing and able to take the best of our ideas and make them better. In the end we didn’t just get a cabin we got a home filled with personality, stories and history. Mike is so much more than a developer or builder, he is an artist and someone we consider a friend.

We have had the chance to share Lofty with friends and family. Our boys spent the fall hunting for frogs, hiking the woods, and swimming in the spring fed pond. We were drawn here for the skiing, but discovered a four season retreat, one that we know is right for us.

The Philp Family | Burlington, Ontario, Canada

We are a skiing family and had a property in Western New York that required a lot of upkeep and was thirty minutes away from the ski hill.

We were looking to downsize and be closer to the amenities of Ellicottville. My wife and son both came upon the Lofty Mountain Development and a meeting was setup to visit the site.

We met with Mike Incorvaia and fell in love with the lot and our view immediately!

We then toured some of the existing models and were able to incorporate some of our ideas into finishing our cottage. Mike has been tremendous every step of the way. From his attention to detail in construction to his follow through in creating this truly unique lifestyle.

We are now only minutes away from Holiday Valley and love entertaining and enjoying the entire property. This has been a great fit for our family as it allows us to “escape” our busy lives in the city and relax and appreciate this spectacular retreat.

The Toy Family | Oakville, Ontario, Canada

We started looking for a vacation property after spending time skiing in Ellicottville. However, we wanted more than just a ski chalet. We wanted a property we could use all four seasons. After we stumbled upon the Lofty Mountain Grandeur website, we organized a visit with Mike Incorvaia. After spending an afternoon walking the property and seeing the homes already built, we were convinced that Lofty Mountain would fit into what our family was looking for; a place we can get away to for years to come.
The only apprehension remaining was purchasing a new build and the construction process. We have previously had an unpleasant experience with new construction. We took the plunge after several conversations with Mike. His attention to detail, responsiveness and passion for developing the land comes through in the entire development. He lives and breathes each new home built and the entire property. He takes great care of you from start to finish and beyond. He follows through with every question you have and every detail agreed to. He even remembered items that we have forgotten.

We had been looking for a vacation property for a few years and when we arrived at Lofty Mountain Grandeur we instantly knew we had found the right place. The quality of construction and the beautiful nature trails are second to none.
We are season pass holders at Holiday Valley and are pleased that we can be so close to the hill and still benefit from the tranquil surroundings. Our children look forward to coming down and exploring nature in a way that is not possible in the city. We could not have asked for a better four season location.

When purchasing a vacation property it is important that you really know what you are looking for. Originally we thought we were looking for easy access to skiing and the quaint town of Ellicottville. Once we started to really get serious about purchasing, our list became much more comprehensive, we were looking for a four season property that promotes a family based active lifestyle. Our decision to purchase in Lofty Mountain Grandeur has by far exceeded all of our expectations. It seems like every visit leads to a new adventure. We have enjoyed mountain biking, snow shoeing, hiking and cross country skiing on the private shared trail system. We have made maple syrup from scratch, enjoyed picking and eating several local wild berries, and wild leaks. We have also seen a plethora of wildlife all right from our kitchen window.
The shared pond is great for swimming and fishing and the waterfalls is amazing and changes with each season It is hard to believe that some of the best skiing and all of Ellicottville’s amenities is only 10 minutes away.

I am so happy to have purchased in Lofty Mountain as the experiences and adventures we have shared with family and friends have been very special. You can buy a house anywhere in the surrounding Ellicottville area but if you are looking to invest in a lifestyle look no further than Lofty Mountain Grandeur. When you do view the homes and walk the property rest assured you are in good hands as Mike Incorvaia and company will take good care of you. It will not take you long to realize the passion he has for the land and his vision of creating this unique lifestyle.
