Property description

When you arrive at this picturesque property you will find yourself nestled in the middle of a cove between Point Gratiot park and Canadaway Creek on 1.5 acres and 200ft of beachfront on Lake Erie. This listing is for our awesome 1000sq ft 2 BR/1BA upstairs apartment with a separate side door entrance. A King, queen and pullout twin are included in the rental. This unit is part of the original Hequembourg estate. *Harminnie was the original name of this mansion from Major Harry and Minnie Hequembourg (Neighborhood named after him down the street) whom originally owned the entire bay from canadaway creek to crooked brook creek, and actually was a major contributor to the development of the area. He has an amazing background/history and upon arriving you will have a booklet with original pictures of the house and information about a camp he used to run for children in the early 1920's.
On the beach you can spend time hunting for beach glass and driftwood, lay out and catch some sun or take a 10 minute walk down to the Dunkirk Boardwalk at the harbor to enjoy a bite to eat, a cocktail, or satisfy a shopping craving with a couple different shops. Dunkirk Harbor also offers a marina and a public launching facility to access Lake Erie. Do you want to go fishing? Take a charter out of the harbor, drop your line in the warm water outlet for the coal plant (official NY fishing spot) or try and haul in a big one from the mouth of the creek, which is less than a half mile from the house. Enjoy concerts and an art scene? Chautauqua Institute is about a 40 minute drive, you can enjoy their symphony, concerts, speaking venues and theater performances. Lake Chautauqua offers many attractions available by boat that includes Midway Amusement Park, Long Point State Park, shopping, and numerous restaurant/bar establishments. There is truly something for everyone there.
Consider a wine tour if you’re looking to venture away from the lake for a bit. Lake Erie Wine Country, just a 5-10 minute drive from the house is part of the largest grape-growing region east of the Rockies, extends roughly 45 miles from Silver Creek, New York to North East, Pennsylvania. At the end of 2011, it has become home to over 24 commercial and estate wineries. Check them out at http://www.lakeeriewinecountry.org/about-wine-country . Other attractions within arms reach include Niagara Falls which is an easy 1hr and 15 minute drive, restaurants (10 minutes walking distance), ski resorts (Holiday valley 1 hr), snowmobile trails, nature trails, golf courses (5 miles), inland lakes, shopping, and a casino (1hr). Also there is a great mini-golf course that is fun for the whole family that is about a 5-10 minute drive from the apt. BILLS FANS (35 min from Ralph wilson stadium)

We are located 5 miles from the New York State Thruway (I-90), Exit 59 Dunkirk/Fredonia. From here, you will find that it’s a quick ride to and from the Buffalo (1 hr) or Erie (1 hr 10 min) International Airports.

This apartment unit is 2 Bedroom setup with 1 Queen Bed , 1 King bed and a pullout twin sofa in the living room with sleeping accommodations for 5 people. Features include: Breathtaking views of Lake Erie throughout the apartment. High Speed internet / Cable. LCD in living / bed room.
