  • 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!"

  • Great stay!

    "Great house, clean, equipped with clean sheets, towels and the kitchen is fully functional. We came down from Toronto as every year to ski (3 families) and this is by far the best accommodation close by Holiday Valley. Owner was helpful with tips and answered any questions we had. I recommended it 100%!"

  • 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!"

  • Card Club's Great Weekend!

    "We are a group of 9 women who play cards together monthly in our little town of Butler, PA. We go away for a weekend once a year to enjoy each other's company away from home - generally in early spring. The Highlands condo was perfect for our purposes - cooking, relaxing, sharing each other's company. It was spacious, luxuriously furnished, equipped with unbelievably comfortable beds, sound insulated from one room to the next (they snore...), and a wonderfully equipped kitchen which accommodated our cooking - we tend to get out of hand with feasts morning, noon, and night. We were comfortable playing cards together, laying around reading, writing, talking in the great room with the large screen television and fireplace. We did not take advantage of the pool table, but we did take advantage of the whirlpool bathtubs in some of the rooms. Hot water was plentiful, no waits for showers, and the laundry facilities kept us in fresh towels. The outdoor weather wasn't inviting this year, but last year we were able to play some Bocce in the back yard and enjoyed the grill on the back deck. The condo is a quick drive to Chautauqua and Findlay Lake - where we've shopped and played. We loved it - and really hated to come home."

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.
