Mayville house description

Chautauqua Ridge Retreat is located about 10 miles away from Mayville, NY and 10 miles from peek-n-peak in Findlay Lake, NY. We offer a quiet country way of life yet are only minutes away from the areas popular tourist activities. We are located outside of Sherman, NY on 13 tranquil acres and are surrounded by farm fields. There is a small pond located on our property that is perfect for fishing or swimming. We also have direct access to over 400 miles of snowmobile trails thru our back field where the trail crosses. That’s right, once you arrive you do not have to trailer your sleds to a trail head to be on the trails. We are also about 1 mile away from thousands of acres of public hunting land that has abundant deer and turkey populations along with grouse. The Fred J. Cusimano westside overland trail is also within walking distance from our property which gives you access to 24 miles of trails that are perfect for hiking, biking or cross country skiing.
The house is a newly built two bedroom two bathroom that also has a large rec room area that can accommodate groups up to twelve adults.
Once you are on top of the Chautauqua ridge you will feel like you can reach out and touch the stars. Relax by a campfire with the firewood provided for you or enjoy a peaceful evening on the wraparound deck as you reminisce about the day’s events.
