About the property

Chalet, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This is a newly built chalet (completed fall of 2011). Built, owned and managed by an area resident and custom homebuilder for more than 20 years.

Downstairs features a living room with gas/wood fireplace, a 55in HD internet TV and surround sound system with DVR. The dining room has a large table that can accommodate 8-12 people and the kitchen is modern and fully stocked. Granite countertops and stainless appliances (microwave, refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, oven/stove, dishwasher and disposal). There are also two bedrooms (1 queen/2 singles), a full bathroom, a full size washer and dryer. Hardwood floors throughout.

It is an absolutely gorgeous view of the countryside when you look out the two-story wall of windows from the living room/dining room.

The second story of the chalet features two additional bedrooms (1 Queen/2 Singles) and another full size bathroom – this one with a jetted tub.

The front deck of the home is a two level, huge deck with a built-in gas grill. Plenty of space for outdoor eating and to relax and enjoy the beautiful views.

Communications – we’ve got you covered, with satellite TV and DVRs in the living room and two of the bedrooms. Broadband wireless internet is also provided.

This is a great house for families. A huge front lawn provides plenty of space for the kids/games.

The driveway to the house is a half mile long from the road. There is plenty of room for off road parking – for RVs, trailers, and snowmobiles.

The world famous Chautauqua Institution is only a mile away. Boat launch at Prendergast is also approximately 1.5 miles away.

We are centrally located between Peek n Peak and Holiday Valley. Both are great ski resorts. The home is also very close to Chautauqua Lake Snowmobile trails.

A lovely house and setting

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is a perfect place to stay while visiting Chautauqua, exploring the area, or just chilling out. The house is gorgeous, beautifully designed and built, very clean, quiet and isolated yet near activities, and the surroundings are truly beautiful. Perfect for a small family or 4 adults.

Luxurious lodging in a secluded setting

  • 5 of 5

This was my third year staying at the chalet and it was as wonderful as ever. The chalet is spacious and has excellent outdoor spaces--large deck and chairs around a fire pit, as well as lots of grassy lawn. It is a very comfortable place to stay and really contributed to the success of our family reunion. I look forward to returning there next summer.

This is a great spot -- perfect for a family get-together.

  • 5 of 5

We had our second family reunion here this July and it is a terrific place. A beautiful chalet, in great condition. We had wonderful views of the countryside from the deck, near Chautauqua Institute, with great hiking at the Chautauqua Gorge and along Prendergast Creek. We love that it is tucked back in the woods on a hill. The hosts are responsive and helpful. We highly recommend this spot!

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year staying at this property and we love it. The house is very well built and well appointed. The grounds are fantastic, the front yard was perfect for our small children to run around and tire themselves out. The location is great - close proximity to Mayville, Bemus, and Lakewood.

Top notch!

  • 5 of 5

The property and home were pristine. We could not have asked for more for our gang of seven seniors. Not quite sure how it could sleep more than eight. We thoroughly enjoyed the choices for hanging inside and out. The owner was so accommodating. We were very impressed with the design and workmanship of the home. We look forward to returning!
