Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I live with my wife in Boulder, CO but was born and grew up in Warren, PA 30 miles from Lake Chautauqua. I love spending several weeks each summer at this lower elevation where I am able to stay very active with bicycling and golf.

Why the Owner Chose Dewittville Bay:
50 years ago I sailed and partied on this lake. Two years ago I began searching for the perfect cottage. I found it at The Villas. You will find it there too.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Approach the property driving through a golf course above and overlooking the lake. The views continue from the living room and private deck. Just 7 miles drive from Chautauqua Institution but secluded from any commercial activity.
