Best Place to stay in the whole Chautauqua Area

  • 5 of 5

We have been using Jim and Carol's cottage for the past several years. We always have found the cottage spotless and ready to move in. They provide all the amenities to include washer and dryer and even wifi (just bring your clothes, etc. and you are ready to go). They continue to find ways to upgrade the cottage and this year they converted the utility room into an additional bed room which now can occupy up to 8 people. The view of Lake Erie, its surroundings and of course the sunsets are both just wonderful and breathtaking. Jim and Carol will go out of their way to accommodate your needs and/or desires. I would highly recommend this cozy and lovely cottage. Thank you Jim and Carol for your gracious hospitality and we look forward to coming back next July.

What a View!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jim and Carol's beautiful cottage. The deck is perfectly situated on a bluff with a beautiful view of Lake Erie. We spent hours out there! The home is very cozy and equipped with everything that you could possibly need. Jim and Carol were wonderful hosts. The landscaping and flower gardens are beautiful. We kayaked up the lake from the harbor in town and the water was crystal clear. We found a very private beach for lunch. We enjoyed visiting 3 wineries in the area and brought home souvenirs! This vacation was booked as a surprise for us by our 3 daughters and we would highly recommend this area and wonderful cottage to couples and families alike.

One of Lake Erie's Best!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! Our family has been vacationing at this Westfield home for three years and it just keeps getting better. The hosts, Jim and Carol, are very gracious and go out of their way to make your stay a very enjoyable one. All the comforts of home are found within this house and a beautiful Lake Erie view from your deck is even added in. Highly recommended.

A great place to get away, spectacular view and great owners

  • 5 of 5

I come here every year with my fishing buddies. Great view with awesome owners. Jim and Carol are always trying to make our Lake Erie experience a wonderful one. They suggested a great place to go out to eat , Kiss BBQ. They even brought us a pie and baked goods, which was delicious. A great place to stay hands down.

Beautiful, quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

I so enjoyed my 5 day solo retreat at Jim & Carol's place. With Lake Erie in the backyard I was in heaven! The home is very clean, comfortable, spacious and encourages snuggling up on the couch and gazing out at the lake. (I was there in Dec-Jan.) It's located close to lots of great places: rails-to-trails hiking, Lake Erie State Park and restaurants. Yet I never left the place during my entire retreat. There was so much beauty there, with relative easy access to walks on the beach. (It takes a few minutes to walk down a trail to the beach below - the house is located on a bluff above the water.) Jim & Carol were very welcoming and kind. I enjoyed my conversations with them and their invitation to join them out by a campfire one night. I imagine this place is even more heavenly in the summer when swimming is possible and there is more sun than snow! Thank you, Jim & Carol, for your generosity and hospitality!

(The description in VRBO is accurate re. location, layout, amenities, etc. Jim & Carol's house is right next door and there are neighbors very close on the other side, too. This place is nestled in a small lakeside community that during this winter season was very quiet.)

Owner's Response: Megan, Thanks for the kind words , Jim and I were so glad that you were able to stay at our place for a few days and you were able to enjoy the sounds of the lake. We were also glad that the weather was pleasant enough to have one last fire and that you were able to join us.
