  • Great Summer Getaway

    "My wife and I spent a late summer weekend at this great cabin with two other couples. Everyone enjoyed the quiet, wooded setting with a spacious deck for grilling and star gazing. The hot tub was a big plus for tired mountain bikers. The well-equipped kitchen was ideal for a birthday dinner cooked in house. Comfortable furniture and beds, proximity to Pittsburgh, and a quick drive to town and trails make this a five-star rental."

  • Wonderful Vacation Home

    "This was our second visit to Cuba Lake and our first time staying at this cottage. There are nine of us (2 families) and the layout of this cottage made for a very enjoyable visit. The views and the location of this rental are the best! The second kitchen on the bottom floor with the pool table and bar area, the grill and hot tub on the lake side porch made it perfect for two families to enjoy their together time and alone time. The bedrooms upstairs are very spacious and the main floor living space is roomy and has spectacular views of the lake from the top deck (which is covered – a great place for my morning coffee). The garage made it easy to unpack and pack without getting wet (we had a rainy departure day) and the extra parking to the side of the house was very convenient. The owner had added a fire pit which we enjoyed every evening. My only complaint, which really isn’t a complaint, was the smell of the water but the owner let us know about that before our arrival. John was very helpful and if we travel back to Cuba Lake, we would definitely like to stay at this wonderful cabin."

  • Great location

    "This was a great location to all the area wineries and Lake Chatauqua. It's right on the lake with no other properties in sight, so nice and secluded. The best part was that it fit our large group, and there was enough room that no one ever felt crowded."

  • Great stay for a girls weekend

    "Very nice place, plenty of room for 8 girls. The owner was very responsive to any questions and got in touch with me a couple days before to let me know about the place and how to get there. The house is a 10 minute drive from Ellicottville or a $25 taxi ride. Only a couple things, we were only given 2 rolls of toilet paper for 8 girls for 2 days and no paper towels or anything. It was fine because there was a TOPS in town, but it would have been nice to know before. She did provide towels and new sheets for the bed. Overall a great stay for the price and we loved every minute."

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.
