Owner info

Year Purchased: 1965

Why the Owner Chose Mayville, NY, USA:
Our house at Chautauqua is a special gathering place for families. We are a long time Chautauqua family that has been coming to Chautuaqua since the 1920s and we have owned this house since 1965.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Staying at our house provides the best of both worlds - you have a large lake front home with spectacular views, beachfront and a dock. We are the closest house to the Institution which can easily be accessed by foot, car or boat. However you do not have any of the cost or parking issues associated with staying in the Institution.
