  • East of Eden a Summer's dream!

    "We recently rented "East of Eden," the name of this lakeside house. Amazing! Being from that area, it was great to go back and stay in such a beautiful lakeside house! I hadn't seen my family in 5 years--who all still live in the area. It was a multi-purpose visit! Seeing my family, a "school reunion" (we missed our 30th last year) and a celebration of my partner and I getting married lake-side with family! The rest of our days were filled with lake relaxation and sight seeing! I would highly recommend this place to ANYONE! Full kitchen, sleeps up to 11. Such an amazing place to relax and unwind, and the price can't be beat! I checked in to local motels, and their prices were terrible compared to staying here! And, as I said, you have all the amenities of a home! We are thinking of returning in the autumn for my niece's wedding and will definitely consider staying again!"

  • Exactly As Described

    "We are a family with 3 older children. Brought a sailboat and kayaks. Spent a week enjoying the lake. Very quiet. Very private. Just what we needed. The cottage was clean and the owner helpful. Would return again."

  • Excellent accommodations for a summer or winter getaway!

    "I recently returned from a 3 month stay, and I couldn't have found a more perfect place to meet my needs! This 3 bedroom, 2 full bath, fully furnished chalet/condo is nestled in the wooded countryside, yet easy access to restaurants, shopping, skiing at Kissing Bridge, which is practically in your back yard, picnicking, hiking or camping at Sprague Brook Park and all the other activities in the surrounding towns that you could possibly want, to make your stay in Western NY a totally enjoyable one. If you like the old fashioned 5 & 10 stores, make sure you visit Vidler's on Main St in East Aurora - it's just a short 14 mile drive from the chalet. When you've finished shopping, visit Pasquale's restaurant, also on Main St in East Aurora for a great meal. You'll absolutely love it! The location of the chalet also helped my situation tremendously, since I grew up in the neighboring town of Springville, so I was a short drive away from all my family and friends. The owners are fantastic "temporary landlords" and bend over backwards to make sure your stay will be a happy experience for you. I bombarded them with endless questions through emails, in the months prior to my arrival, since this was my first experience with VRBO, and they answered each and every concern I had. I now consider them my new friends! The pictures shown in the advertisement are very accurate, and it's even better when seen in person! I am so looking forward to returning, when I can again enjoy my new "home away from home" and all it has to offer! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help in making this past summer, a fantastic one! Local gal, now living in N.C."

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.
