Maximum occupancy is five, strictly enforced. No overnight guest or camping. The lakeside campfire site is great for roasting marshmallows or just gathering with friends and family.

Discover Jamestown by visiting The Fenton (1863 Victorian Italian Villa Style Brick Mansion) History Museum and Research Library - home of New York State Governor Reuben Eaton Fenton1865-1868, known as "the soldiers friend" for his support of the Civil War soldier. As a founder of the Republican Party AKA anti-slave party, he ran on the same ticket with Abraham Lincoln. Museum houses MANY exhibits featuring the Victorian age, early settler age, business and industry, and of course Lake Chautauqua, as well as changing exhibits.
The Roger Tory Peterson Institute houses original artwork and various exhibits featuring Peterson's devotion to wildlife, especially birds. Great walking trails!
The Robert H. Jackson Center, focuses on the life of former Chief Justice of the United States, who stepped down from his post to lead the prosecution team at the Nuremberg Trials. Hosts many guest speakers from the political world as well.
The Lucille Ball - Desi Arnaz Center, a tribute to Jamestown's own First Lady of comedy, houses the Lucy-Desi Museum and Lucy/Desi Playhouse which features the sets from the "I Love Lucy" New York apartment, Hollywood hotel Room, and many other exhibits including a great gift shop!

Take a short ride to Westfield on Lake Erie and Visit the McClurg Museum, which houses the county historical society and many exhibits about Chautauqua County's rich history. Walk across the street for a photo op with the statues of Abraham Lincoln and Grace Bedell, commemorating his stop in Westfield to personally thank little Grace for her letter suggesting he grow whiskers, as she thought it would help get him elected. It worked!
Another short drive will take you to Holiday Valley or Peak and Peak ski resorts which offer not only great skiing, but tubing and ski lessons too!
Splash Lagoon (Erie's Indoor waterpark), Seneca Allegeny Casino, Presque Isle Downs & Gaming, wineries and golf courses are just minutes away. Walk out your door and on to your snowmobile to ride the many trails or right on the frozen lake (watch out for ice fisherman!).

Year Purchased: 1987
About the owner: I was born and raised in the city of Jamestown, and spent a great deal of time on Lake Chautauqua. I am employed by our local history museum as Education Director. My husband and I spent many weekends with our family on the lake. Before that, many weekends with my parents and siblings (my dad loved to fish). He loved this spot, especially the fishing in our bay. With this said, I am extremely familiar with Lake Chautauqua, and enjoyed boating and vacationing at our cottage with our children Mike and Lauren, as well as with our family and friends.
Why the Owner Chose Mayville, NY, USA:
My husband and I were married 30 years until his passing. Our children Michael and Lauren are grown up and have moved away. We bought our cottage in 1987 and our family and friends have enjoyed it ever since. We both grew up in Jamestown NY, located on the outlet of the lake. Our parents pastime coincidentally was boating on Chautauqua lake. Of course we never new each other back then. After we met and married we would take Sunday drives around the lake while exploring every dead end and private drive wishing for a place on the lake. In March of 1987 my husband read an add in local classified newspaper listed by the second owner (built in 1949). We drove to the cottage, met with the owner, fell in love with the cottage, made a deal and the rest is history.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Location, Location, Location! How many times have you heard that? It's so true... Surrounded on three sides by a nature preserve with plenty of outside area, was one of the top reasons we fell in love with our cottage. Being one of the few cottages left on the lake that hasn't been torn down and replaced with modern lake mansions or added on to in every direction...its still in its original condition. I did however, put a foundation underneath which raised the cottage up a few feet, and replaced the porch in 2016. The kitchen, bath, flooring and heat and air system are newer, yet the place has its old cottage charm with all modern amenities. Still has original tongue and groove knotty pine planks on interior walls with original hardwood flooring through out the bedrooms. You can't help but love the way they built the large window group facing the lake. Exterior is painted clapboard along with a brand new large screened enclosed porch with stunning view of the lake and close to all the action in the upper deeper part of the lake.
