If you like homemade ice cream, this is the place! Located just a short walk away, Sweet Jenny's is the place ice cream dreams are made of. Since 1985, Sweet Jenny’s has been producing small batches of ice cream and chocolates from fresh wholesome ingredients. Products are created in the same building as the retail retail shop, inside the 1811 Williamsville Mill. That means you get the freshest product possible, often out for sale the very day it is made. Our favorite flavor ice cream: Black raspberry

Sightseeing

Just beyond our patio and down the gorge, is Glen Park. This beloved park has walking trails, ponds and of course the spectacular Glen Falls. If you're there on a sunny summer Saturday, you're likely to find a wedding party or two as the base of the falls is a popular spot for newlyweds to gather for wedding photos.

Island Park is just a 10-minute walk from the Airbnb. Just as the name says, this park is really a little island in the middle of Ellicott Creek. There's a nice playground for children and a large covered picnic area towards the back of the park.

Located just a few blocks away, the red Williamsville Water Mill Complex is a historic mill. It was built originally as a sawmill in 1801, substantially enlarged in 1827, and operated in that capacity until 1903. Also on the site was the Water-Lime Works and Williamsville Cement Company mill, which was later converted to be a gristmill. After 1908, the mills were used for apple cider production. The complex is a rare surviving example of a water-powered seat of local industry in Western New York. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. In 2014, Sweet Jenny's Ice Cream renovated and moved into the mill, where they continue to draw business from those visiting Glen Park.
