This is a very nice (1000 square ft) 2 bedroom home located on Lake Erie with a gorgeous view of the 'Big Pond' including its' spectacular sunsets. The deck and enclosed patio are with in 20 feet of the bluff which serves to enhance your view. Many recent upgrades make staying here very very comfortable. The house is nice outside, beautiful inside and the view simply can't be beat.

Stairs leading to a private beach are just a few steps away....... great swimming and plenty of room for a nice walk...... also, enjoy a bonfire or campfire while on the beach.

Why Jim Brotz chose Chautauqua-Allegheny

We have always dreamed of a home on the lake and were thrilled when we found this one on Lake Erie.

What makes this house unique

The home is in the middle of the Concord Grape Wine Trail; Chautauqua Institute is 20 mins away which offers concerts, theater performances and world famous speakers; 2 mins from Barcelona Harbor; 1 hr from the Buffalo Airport, and Niagara Falls; several golf courses nearby; Peak and Peak Golf Resort less than 1 hr away; 15 mins from the PA line and 20 minutes from Findley Lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us a weekend at this cute little cottage! All five of our group are wives, and three of us mothers and this was the perfect weekend escape for us! We also caught a peak at the Bald Eagle on Sunday morning as he soared right over our heads! We will definitely look into coming back in the future.

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.)

Cozy, quiet home with a beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation spot. It has a warm welcoming feel. There is a large picture window and deck that look out over Lake Erie. The home has everything you could need. There are many books to read, and DVDs to watch. There are great little knick knacks and photos of the local catches. Jim was welcoming and helpful. I will definitely be going back.

What a lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

The Lakefront home exceed expectations on all fronts. Comfortable, with everything you need including a full laundry, with lake views from the living room, kitchen and bedroom, what more could you want? A very quiet, tree-lined neighborhood, Jim and Carol were the perfect hosts. They welcomed us when we arrived and then were available as needed. Saw broad-winged hawks every day! We will definitely be back!

Great peaceful getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

We found your sweet, cozy lakefront cottage a perfect, relaxing place to unwind and unravel! We appreciated your attention to details to make us feel at home and comfortable. Everything we needed was supplied so we could just kick back and enjoy the gorgeous view from the deck swing. I would recommend your place to friends and family and we hope to return. We had really great meals at nearby restaraunts and loved the local wineries! Our hosts were lovely and very accomodating to our needs and comfort. Thank you!
