Comments We have been blessed for 7 years with Rich's amazing gifts of hospitality, friendship and amazing meals and treats. The Hilltop is a sanctuary nestled in the wooded beauty of the foothills of the Allegheny's. We meet wonderful new people, as well as renew relationships with good friends over the years. Thanks to RICH, we always feel welcomed,refreshed and filled with appreciation for the beauty in life with each trip. Bring your cross country skiis!

Comments Wow! If ever you are seeking a place for quiet, solitude, a place for reflection, communing with nature, or a setting for a seminar or retreat, maybe a simple "family getaway vacation"; a week end away from the stress, noise and "hubbub" of the city, this is it! The Bolivar Hilltop Lodge hidden away deep in the forest among the towering oak and maple trees and the whispering pines, located atop a 2,200 foot above sea level hill in the rural country area of Allegany County NY, owned and operated by a genuinely friendly Rich and Rhonda Fontana, is an idealic setting for those who seek and welcome clear country air and quiet solitude broken only by the sounds of bird song and the breeze rustling the dancing leaves and whispering trees. The main lodge, made of California redwood, is a return to yesteryear, furnished with antiques and memories of a long bygone era when the lodge and surrounding forest was an exclusive "playground" and meeting place for oil, lumber, and land barons and merchants of the '30's and '40's.
