About the Property

3 bedroom 4 bath with additional main floor study/br and basement sleeping area


***Main House is available weeks 4, 6, and 7***

First off, this property actually has 2 units for rent and each has its own kitchen. There is the main house plus a separate main level 2 br 1 bath apartment. The main level apt can be rented with main house for additional room (additional rent and subject to availability) or rented separately as VRBO listing 863151. Each unit has separate private entrances. However when rented together an interior door can be unlocked providing a "lock off" scenario allowing interior access between the units if desired.

Located in a residential neighborhood on Elm Lane right at the entrance to the North gate of Chautauqua intuition 25 steps to the trolley with shuttle pick up every 15 minutes. This is a well maintained 3 unit home with a picturesque setting of mature trees, privacy and adjacent to the Chautauqua institution.

******Main House******


Main house is a 3 br 3 bath home and sleeps 6-12 (plus additional sleeping in basement "dorm") with app 2500 sq feet between main and upper levels. Vaulted ceiling in living room with balcony and fireplace with large sliding glass doors gives way to an open spacious feel. Home is fully furnished and comes complete with Wi-Fi and television.

The kitchen is bright with wonderful natural light from the sliding glass door which leads to a huge partially covered double back deck.

Privacy galore with direct Chautauqua Institution access, no drive or long walk required! Fantastic walking trails convenient to the lake amenities.

Upstairs-3 Bedrooms sleeps 6 to 9 plus a sofa bed in study/den. Master Bedroom has private 3/4 bath, while other 2 bedrooms share a full bath.

Additionally, large dorm-like sleeping area in basement allows for up to 4 more additional guests!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: We are a 'Chautauqua Family' for sure! Mom attended Chautauqua on an art scholarship when she was 17 years old and fell in love with the unique charm of the world renowned Chautauqua Institute. Fast forward many many years (my how time flies) and now we have aunts and uncles owning homes next door and one block over, with family and friends galore relishing any chance to visit and recharge their batteries in the ambiance of Chautauqua!

Why Mayville, NY, USA:
Easy! Location!! This property has the unique characteristic of being the only one of its kind! How so? It sits right at the gate to the Chautauqua Institute (30 steps front yard to Chautauqua North/Elm Gate!), with all the benefits and convenience of being actually in the Institute. Result- you have the same convenience but with so much more privacy and flexibility including: 1.) Guests do not need gate passes to visit you! 2.) No restrictions on guest visiting hours! 3.) No expensive Chautauqua parking passes required with plenty of parking space available on the property! 4.) Priced less than half of what you would pay just 25 yards away! 5.) Huge Yard! Space Space and more space!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
2 units to choose from! (See other VRBO listing 863151. Its all about cost/benefit with renting at the Chautauqua Gateway House! You get all the convenience of staying in the Chautauqua Institute with additional flexibility not available from a rental inside the institute, all for about 1/2 the cost you would pay for similar rentals only 25 yards away!
