  • Wonderful cabin

    "The cabin was great. Everything was very high quality and working perfectly, and the cabin was clean. The TV and stereo were very well set up and much higher end than most rental properties. The cabin is not far from Holiday Valley, which is what we were using it for, I want to say it was about a 10 minute drive. The hot tub was great, although it was slightly smaller than I expected (it could comfortably fit 4 people). Dealing with the owner was painless. There are two cautions I would throw out there: 1) There is very little soundproofing in floors/walls, it's basically just a layer of wood, so privacy is somewhat compromised if that's important to you. Not a big minus, just something to be aware of. 2) The cabin is at the top of a steep hill with tight turns that gets snowed on before everything else so it can be quite difficult to get to. I would say either 4WD or snow tires or tire chains are an absolute must in winter. I am very experienced with heavy snow driving and think most people overestimate how often these snow driving aids are needed, but they're needed here. Overall I'm very happy with my stay and definitely would recommend the cabin."

  • Summer wedding family base

    "We rented this home for family members to stay in during my daughter's wedding in Ellicottville this summer. The house is beautifully decorated, has breathtaking views, lovely architecture, and homey touches like hummingbird feeders (and yes, the hummingbirds came to use them!). The kitchen has everything you could need. It's the type of house that you enjoy just being in. The location is also perfect, SO close to Holimont, but very convenient to town as well. LOVED IT! Thank you to the owner for making it available to others to enjoy and for the helpful attention we received as well. Your home played a very happy part in my daughter's wedding. Strongly recommend."

  • Nestled in the Trees

    "Twelve of us (4 adults and 8 children ranging in ages from 12-22) spent the Family Day weekend at this beautiful chalet. While we were short a bed or two (kids not wanting to share doubles), there was certainly room for all of us to eat together and spend time reading in various parts of the house. The location is gorgeous, windows everywhere, from which we could look out at the falling snow in the woods. Two double kitchen sinks and a dishwasher made clean up easy. Plenty of hot water for everyone. There was a problem with getting the temperature even throughout the house (cold on the main floor, hot in the bedrooms). That is the only reason we give it a VERY GOOD versus an EXCELLENT. Close to the ski hill and the town but secluded for privacy. No cell service but excellent wireless. Definitely recommended."

Chautauqua-Allegheny Travel Tips

The Diverse and Rich Heritage of the Chautauqua Allegheny Region

The Chautauqua Allegheny Region is located in New York, though part of Allegheny is also in Pennsylvania. This area is rich in culture and heritage, offering a diverse landscape to explore via snowmobiles or bikes. The land is vastly open with lakes and lush forests awaiting you. For a comfortable stay, consider Chautauqua Allegheny region vacation rentals. These are homes away from home with luxury and good rustic appeal. Many of the accommodations are Chautauqua Allegheny region cabins built of logs, furnished with wooden delights from the Amish talent. Each rental is equipped with a kitchen, plenty of privacy, and space for large or small groups.

Reaching Chautauqua Allegheny Region Resorts

Whether you are staying in Chautauqua Allegheny region resorts or local cabins, you have a few methods of reaching the area. From upstate New York, Interstate 90 will run south along the western coast of New York. Dunkirk and Fredonia are the largest cities in the Chautauqua region as one moves south. This region is rather large, running from Lake Erie to the Pennsylvania border. If you are coming from east or west, Interstate 86 will move you through the Chautauqua Allegheny region. Highways 62 and 219 run north and south, bringing you in from Pennsylvania into New York.

Exploring the Chautauqua Allegheny Region Cabins

Depending on where your cabin is located, you may find Salamanca, Franklinville, or Silver Creek within your reach. In fact, you have numerous little towns and cities in the Chautauqua Allegheny region that make wonderful day trip spots, near your cabin. During your explorations, consider seeing the Annual Indian Foods Dinner which is held each summer; they serve roast turkey, venison, corn soup, corn bread, mashed beans, and fried salt pork. There is also a horse show event you might want to enjoy in Franklinville where you can also attend some classes. Events are just a small part of the exploring you will want to do while staying at Chautauqua Allegheny Region vacation rentals. Adams Art Gallery in Dunkirk offers a 22-foot structure with natural and track lighting to display their contemporary artwork. The building was once a church, giving way to similar architecture.

Outdoor Excitement Throughout the New York Region

Chautauqua Allegheny is full of outdoor adventure, with skiing, hiking, biking, and whitewater rafting opportunities. In summer, you should expect beach days with swimming, boating, and even diving in Lake Erie. Whitewater rafting tours will leave from Gowanda in the Zoar Valley. It is here you will find Class II and III rapids.

In winter, the landscape will be much altered from what the summer offered. In this season, you can expect the towns and cities to be filled with snow, dusting the rooftops of buildings and the streets. The forests and mountains are suddenly teeming with downhill skiers, cross country adventurists, and snowmobile riders. The lake will no longer be warm enough for swimming but you might find some areas with ice fishing or skating opportunities. Spring will bring the bloom of wildflowers and new wildlife, while autumn will be the best time to view a myriad of colors. In fall, the leaves change from brilliant green to orange, red and yellow hues.

Settling in the Chautauqua Allegheny Area

New York was settled long before the first white settlers of America reached the Chautauqua region. Native Americans travelling from Canada through New York and Pennsylvania used the forests and mountains for their homes. In winter, it was possible to see Native Americans using the resources before they would move up to Canada for summer. Lake Erie was essential to trade, both for Native Americans and later the white settlers. New York was inhabited along the eastern coast, well before villages and towns began in the Chautauqua Allegheny region. However, in the late 1700s and for the rest of the 1800s, the Chautauqua region became an important part of settlers' lives. It became so important that now it is a premier vacation destination for those in the New England and eastern region. Families, couples, and young groups rent the Chautauqua Allegheny region cabins each year to enjoy Lake Erie lodgingand all the mountains have to offer.
