  • Review of seculded cabin with incredible amentities

    "Stayed here for a long weekend with a group of friends. It is a great gathering home for those looking to get away, kick back and relax. The cabin has awesome amentities (hammock in yard, fire place, washer dryer, etc...). The best part for me is the large deck with an amazing view. Large yard is great for games as well, football, etc...The owner and landlord are very easy to work with. It is always a pleasure. This is my second time at the cabin and we plan to come back as we enjoyed our stay even more than the first time. 5 stars !!! simply awesome!"

  • Great family weekend!

    "We stayed at this cozy, clean condo for Presidents weekend. Two adults and 3 children fit comfortably. We cooked most meals as the cookware was adequate. We even made a birthday cake! The location is great both to Sunrise and The Wall lifts making it easy to ski day or night for any ability level and then ski right to the back door to get home! The kids played in the snow and even used sleds provided by one of the friendly neighbors. The owner is great to work with and very communicative. Thanks Linda, we had a fun time! This condo is high on the list for a return family trip to Holiday Valley."

  • Cozy Country Home...says it all!!

    "My family of 5 (2 adults, as well as a 12, 8 and 11 year old) enjoyed a week long stay here during the holidays. We were not sure what to expect as this was our first time renting a house. It turned out to be the perfect little getaway for us. The house is 2min down the road to the tubing hill, 5min to Holimont ski resort and about 7min to Holiday Valley. The house was not an upscale luxury house in the slightest but it had the necessities we required; it was cozy, close to amenities, easy to get to and clean. We especially loved the wood burning fireplace and took full use of that! Thank-you for giving us one of our best family vacations! We look forward to booking this place again!!"

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.
