Lakefront home on beautiful Lake Chautauqua in Maple Springs. Though we use our home through-out the summer, we rent any week that we know we won't be able to be there. Lake Chautauqua is a wonderful lake for boating, and we have a dock with slip for your boat, as you can see in our photos. We have a waterfront deck and picnic table so you may dine at the water's edge. We also have a beach for campfires and smores, and a new fire pit as well. Of course, there is much to see and do in and around the lake, including Midway Park just a short walk away.
We have 4 BR's (one BR w no closet-only a dresser) and two full baths. All bedrooms are on the 2nd floor. Three of our bedrooms have queens, one of which has both a queen and a Coleman-inflatable twin, the 4th bedroom has a bunk with a double down and twin up. Thus, we can comfortably accommodate a total of ten (10), which is our maximum. Our dining room has a table that seats 10. We also have a large eat-in kitchen and a small bar area with a TV, dry bar and bar stools.
A few caveats. Most of our renters have been renting our home for many, many years, including some that were renting before we purchased in 1994, so we apologize if our calendar does not match up with yours. Also, because of some serious allergies in my household, we must insist on No Pets, and No Smoking at any time. Linens and towels are not provided, only blankets. And, like most homes on the lake, our home has well water. Finally, because this is our second home, and not just a rental, we are not often able to rent on short notice in the fall/winter/spring, because we may have just been there the previous weekend, and our personal belongings (food/condiments, clothes, etc.) may not been stored away.
We appreciate your interest in our home, and would be pleased to answer any additional questions that you might have.
NOTE: We apologize in advance if VRBO.com is not properly displaying our calendar. Most of our seasonal renters return year after year, reserving in the fall, and though our calendar is complete and accurate we have noted that VRBO will take down our calendar without providing notice to us as owners. ALSO, we do not rent on short notice, or on a nightly basis, despite their online system that creates nightly rates. Again, we cannot fix these per night quotes, and we apologize for this inconvenience this may cause you.

Why the Owner Chose Bemus Point: I had owned a rental property (a double) before meeting my wife, and we even lived in the double for a year after marriage until buying a SFR. When we sold our double, we wanted to buy another rental property, but in a vacation area where we might also take advantage of the property. We wanted an all season rental, with lakefront water sports in summer and skiing in winter. Our home on Lake Chautauqua has more than fulfilled our goals.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Because we are on the east side of lake, we get to experience beautiful sunsets. Gentle lake breezes, and large shade trees at the water's edge, help keep us cool on warmer days. We have always liked our campfires on our beach at waters edge, and now even more so our fire pit, making smores after dusk.
