October Family Gathering and Clambake
October Family Gathering and Clambake
We have family members in several locations of northeastern Ohio and one family group in Connecticut. The location of this home in Mayville, NY has provided us an excellent location for an extended family "live-in" each year for the past three years and we are already committed for 2013. The home is in an idyllic setting on the shore of Lake Chautauqua, and it truly feels like home. The five-plus bedrooms and three baths very comfortably provide private space for our individual family units which total 9 adults and 3 kids. We have found no other arrangement that has provided the same opportunity to spend an extended weekend together and enjoy our own home cooking. The neighboring countryside, old cemetery, shops, wineries provide many opportunities for amusement, hiking, bike riding, wine tasting, etc. I cannot say enough positive about this home which has brought our extended family closer together each year.

I do want to say how much we enjoyed staying there last summer. It's a classic old house with lots of room for everybody. It was a perfect week for us. Some of the things we especially appreciated were: (1) the large wonderful porch which seemed to always have enough breeze to ward off the insects; (2) the large and well maintained property grounds; (3) having WiFi connection for our use; (4) the great tire swing - our teenagers spent many, many hours playing on it; (5) the proximity of the location next to the Chautauqua Institution; (6) the professional way all the transactions were handled We would come back in a heartbeat if (and when) we could work it out with our families.

Year Purchased: 1965
Why the Owner Chose Mayville:
Our house at Chautauqua is a special gathering place for families. We are a long time Chautauqua family that has been coming to Chautuaqua since the 1920s and we have owned this house since 1965.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Staying at our house provides the best of both worlds - you have a large lake front home with spectacular views, beachfront and a dock. We are the closest house to the Institution which can easily be accessed by foot, car or boat. However you do not have any of the cost or parking issues associated with staying in the Institution.
