About Gregory Smith
This property has been in the Smith family since 1926 and we are the third generation. The family house is next to the rental. The rental is seasonal has only been occupied about three months a year since built in 1988. We love this property and it is very precious to us and will always stay in our family.
Gregory Smith purchased this Cottage in 1988
Why Gregory Smith chose Town of Ellery
Property was purchased by my grandfather because of it's excellent location on the lake. We think there is no better location on Chautauqua Lake because of being on the upper lake and it's proximity and the positioning for sunsets.
What makes this Cottage unique
Beautiful views from inside and outside the cottage. Private and quiet and an excellent location on the lake.

The cottage was perfectly situated on the lake, with gorgeous views from the three large windows. I took countless pictures of Chautauqua, and several were of the lovely sunsets. Greg and Lynn had everything we could possibly need, and we felt very much at home there. The cottage is charming and peaceful, and we wouldn’t hesitate to do it again.
We had a wonderful time...the only problem was how quickly the days flew by!
The cottage was very cute, cozy,clean, with a great view and with wonderful owners.
I had such a great time at this wonderful cottage. There is so much to see and do in the area or do nothing at all and enjoy sitting by the Lake. It's quiet, comfortable and pleasant. If you're looking for a place to just relax this is the place for you. If you're looking to shop this is a great place to be; Bemus Point was wonderful. You can get to The Chautauqua Institute in no time or Lily Dale is about a half hour away. I would definitely come back and stay here over and over again. The cottage is so clean and homey, you may not what to leave.
You guys were the best! Really never knew you were there. The property was left in way beyond expected condition. Hoping you guys will come back for many years to come for additional weeks.
The picture tells the tale best.
Wonderful spot on lake with terrific views. Odd layout of rooms. Solicitous kind helpful hosts. Would definitely rebook.
Loved our stay
We really enjoyed your private lakefront property, a perfect place to rest and relax, watch a beautiful sunset, and close to shopping, the Institute, wineries and restaurants. Your property has all the comforts of home with a fully equipped kitchen, cable TV, WIFI and a covered picnic area with a BBQ grill. We could not ask for more and look forward to staying again in the future. Thank you for providing a perfect vacation environment for the two of us.
Wonderful home in a beautiful location.
There is a fantastic view of the lake from every room. Our favorite place was the covered patio overlooking the lake. It's the perfect place to relax, play a game, or share a meal. The house is very clean and well stocked with everything you can think of. You really can just pack your clothes, they have provided everything else.
Once again I enjoyed my stay at the lake. The cottage is like a home away from home with the added bonus of an exceptional view of Chautauqua Lake. The hosts are wonderful and have lovingly maintained the property. The overall views from the cottage are beautiful. On the rainy days, it was amazing to just sit and watch how the storm blew across the lake so quickly. The sunsets are stunning. Lots to see and do in the area or just sit, relax and enjoy the solitude.
Small boats can be kept in front on an anchor. Long Point State Park is 3 miles away and Midway Park is 1 1/2 miles. Chautauqua Institution is directly across the lake from the cottage and about a 15 minute drive.
