  • Little Old House in Westfield

    "My daughter and I have just returned from spending a very pleasant Canadian Thanksgiving, American style, in Westfield, western New York State. Our trip was planned late and spur-of-the-moment...but what fun we had. The house is old, but clean and well-equipped. The neighbourhood is quiet and the property meticulously maintained. For us, part of the charm of the experience rested with the absence of updating. It was like staying in the home of one's Victorian aunt, stereoscope included! The owners, while friendly, were also unintrusive. The only negative features of the house were a slightly malodourous front porch and back entrance/bathroom area. Not bad drains, exactly...but definitely something lingering. The other areas of the house were fine. The Victorian bed, while very comfortable, was also very creaky, so perhaps best left for a single visitor. The kitchen was delightful and I loved using the retro (but excellent) stove. The floors and area rugs were in great shape, but a wall-to-wall carpet replacement should perhaps be considered. Westfield is a nice little town, very typical, with lots of interesting destinations, including Chautauqua and Lily Dale, only a scenic drive away. Best of all, the cost of renting this property was reasonable. We'll be back!"

  • Perfect for family getaway

    "This house was the perfect spot for our friends and us to meet for a long weekend. Every family had their own bedroom and, with 3.5 bathrooms, there was never a line to use a shower!"

  • Can't Say Enough Good Things

    "My family and I rented the Bantley house a few weeks ago. It is such a spacious house. It fit 4 adult couples more than comfortably. We had our coffee every morning out of the back porch overlooking the yard and lake. The yard is large and feels very private. The pool is well maintained, with plenty of lounge chairs. The entire house is very clean. It was a huge bonus for us to have a washer and dryer in the house. We washed several loads during the week and took almost no dirty laundry home with us, and therefore avoided the much dreaded post-vacation mountain of laundry. I would recommend this house to couples, families, and groups of all ages. It was a comfortable and homey vacation rental. We hope to make a trip back next year!"

  • We'll be back!

    "We stayed at this property with other family members to attend a wedding at Holiday Valley. The property was beautiful in an amazing setting. We all had plenty of room. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was perfect for family meals and I was surprised at how well stocked it was with lots of utensils and cooking basics. The chalet was very clean, so we made sure we left it that way. We will be back!"

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.
