Recent Chautauqua-Allegheny property reviews

  • Spacious, great value

    "Having stayed previously at the Inn at the Peak, this condo is a much better value, with twice the space at a lower price. The unit was squeaky clean, nicely decorated, and noticeably quiet. All the amenities at the Inn are within walking distance."

  • Irwin Bay Beige House from PA Travelers

    "My friends and I have stayed in the Irwin Bay Beige House for a week both in the spring and in the fall for the last 5 years. We always find the house clean and in good repair. All services, including water, toilets, kitches appliances, TV, and furnishings have always worked as expected and we find small upgrades have been made to the property each time we arrive. The house has 3 bedrooms and two baths. We especially like the two baths, as no one likes to wait for the bathroom! The owners are always on site to greet us and have always shown us a friendly, helpful attitude towards any questions or request we may have. This is not a cabin, it's a full size three bedroom home where you can get comfortable and feel like your home! The Lake is just a stones throw away as well as shopping and services. We are looking forward to our next stay at Irwin Bay Cottages in their Beige House! Sincerely, satisfied vacationers from PA."

  • A lovely home, as described!

    "Our family (6 adults) enjoyed this beautiful home for our vacation this year. The home is lovely and the owners have thought of every detail! We all really liked this home, the lake, Bemus Point and the surrounding area. We did have one problem and Bill took care of it promptly. Prior to arriving, Bill was very responsive and answered emails and phone calls quickly. We definitely will be renting this home again when we return to the area. Our favorite restaurant was Guppy's--get there early! We rented kayaks and took a kayak tour with Evergreen Outfitters--they are amazing!"

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.
