Findley Lake chateau / country house description

Situated on 65 acres with views of our own private, 5 acre pond, both summer and winter are divine at Bally Loch. Lots of snow in winter for skiing at Peekn Peak or The Wilderness Lodge just a few miles down the road. Our own property is also great for snowshoeing and xc skiing. Summer is equally blessed. Our large pond is fully stocked with bluegill and large mouth bass. Weedless and spring fed makes for delicious swimming. Rural setting means the stars and moon are bright. Only minutes from Findley Lake and Peek 'N Peak Resort make this the ideal getaway for a restful family vacation OR for a creative retreat.
All the comforts of home--recently renovated and fully stocked kitchen as well as bathroom, central heating--is offset by cozy decor and fires for evening in fireplace or woodstove. Everything provided including staples in the kitchen and top quality linens for beds and towels for bathroom.
Upstairs, two bedrooms offer one full size in master, and one queen and twin in second bedroom.
Modern appliances, nice pots and pans, and china, silverware, and cutting knives. Picnic tables and firepit outside as well as gardens and trails.

                      About: We are the Kinal family for whom Bally Loch is family-central. Most of us live near Bally Loch, so if you have questions or need some directions or guidance, we are near enough to respond quickly. We all grew up in Erie and Bally Loch was our vacation home at that time. Now it is the heart-and-soul of our memories over four generations and the center for our family get togethers.

                      Why Findley Lake:
                      We are Chautauqua County natives and will be thrilled to share those secret places with you that only those raised in an area know, like the closest brewpub, Wegmans Supermarket for food shopping, Panama Rocks, antique shops, French Creek, Lake Erie Wineries beaches.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                      The rural experience moves further and further away from those of us who live in cities for proximity to work and schools. A slice of heaven, Bally Loch is set like a jewel in the heart of Chautauqua County, which enjoys an abundance of powder snow in the winter and temperate zone lakes, farms and meadows in the summer. Have you experienced the western New York village? with its white houses along main street, central square surrounded by shops savvy enough to know their market, cafes alongside diners, beaches along Lake Erie and the smaller lakes up on the escarpment, fruit orchards and vines along the Lake Erie plain? We have plenty of water here! Temperatures in the summer range in the 60's at night and 70's in the day while winters can almost always be counted on for plenty of powder snow. Spring brings wild leeks and maple syrup. Our hardwood forest offer a colorful and lingering autumn. Always a fresh breeze off Lake Erie!
