  • Multiple room house

    "We have rented this place for a few years now, and have enjoyed it every time. It has a large, well stocked kitchen (we bring our own knives and potato masher), and a beautiful ambiance. It has working washing and drying, making packing much easier. There is lots of bedding, (we were a bit short of blankets during the cold snap), and beds. The owners are quick to respond if you have a question. We had great skiing, in spite of the cold weekend. It is not for those without winter tires (at this time of year)."

  • Magical Late Summer Family Vacation

    "We came to Lakeview cottage in mid-August just before the start of school, with our eight children ages 2 through 19. It was an incredible week! The region is just absolutely gorgeous. The kids loved the cove and rocky beach, and found both calm days and rough surf days equally entertaining for different reasons. In calm weather they waded to Ripley Beach, which has a larger stretch of sand. We cooked over the fire pit most nights, watching the sunset over the lake and then looking for the Perseid meteor showers from the Meadow. Carole took my wife and I on a wine tour--the local wines have the most fragrant bouquets we've experienced! Absolutely enchanting. Day trips to Niagara Falls, Lake Ontario, Dunkirk Lighthouse, or Lake Erie State Park are doable from the location. We'll never forget it!"

  • Just Perfect!

    "This lake cottage is simply wonderful! It is a fabulous place for the whole family with little surprises around every corner. The property is quite large for lake front; there are areas for everyone to sit lake front, as well as little secluded areas to sit quietly and watch the ducks swim by. While out and about locally, we met the wonderful caretaker Al, and he showed us how to work everything, where the extra equipment was (bedroom fans; you'll need them!), allowed us amazing photo opportunities, and even brought us fresh tomatoes from his garden! The inside of the cottage is very comfortable and homey. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, pots and pans, utensils and silverware. The internet connection is fast and easy. Flat screen TV with several channels. Comfortable furniture and beds. The screened porch is actually over the water and the views are amazing. Easy to find location and friendly neighbors. We had an awesome fish fry from Moonwinks on Friday and would highly recommend the food. All in all, we had a fantastic stay, and would certainly return to Phillips cottage if our travels take us back to Allegany County NY."

  • Family stay for skiing

    "The house was perfect for our family stay. 4 adults, 4 teens and our dog. The house filled all of our needs and then some. Good kitchen and dining table that seats 12. 4 bathrooms a huge plus getting ready anytime of day. Everything about the house was inviting and comfortable. Short drive to Ellicottville and ski slopes. Huge plus for us, pet friendly. I wish more VRBO properties would consider pets."

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.
