Beautiful Lake-front Condo In Gated Community On Lake Chautauqua

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,200 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

This property is located in one of the few gated communities on Lake Chautauqua. Included in rental is use of a large in-ground swimming pool and tennis courts.

This condo is lake front (closest building to the lake), and is equipped much better than the average rental. In kind, we expect our guests to take good care of our property. The property includes three bedrooms, two full baths, a living room, dining room, kitchen, and utility room with a washer and dryer. The unit has central air conditioning, a dishwasher, microwave oven, stove/oven, refrigerator/freezer, toaster, and blender. There are two decks, one off the master bedroom, and one off the living room. There is also a wood-burning fireplace.

Parking is directly adjacent to the unit (literally steps away). The unit is in the middle level of the building, so access is very easy with only a few steps to get to the entrance. A gas barbeque grill is also provided on the entrance patio.

Rentals are mainly in the Spring/Summer/Fall, but we also accept reservations in winter months due to the close proximity of three major ski areas.

About Jeff Kravitz

My wife and I are both professionals. We have been vacationing at Lake Chautauqua for over 20 years, and our children have always enjoyed these family vacations because there is always so much to do. We originally rented here, but then decided to buy one of the largest units in the complex since we like the area so much.

Jeff Kravitz purchased this condo in 1992

Why Jeff Kravitz chose Dewittville

We live in Pittsburgh, and Chautauqua Lake is an easy 3 hour drive.

What makes this condo unique

The lake area has many opportunities for outdoor fun. For those who are inclined to cultural events, Chautauqua Institution offers a myriad of choices, from theater, to concerts, movies, and other great activities. There is free admission to the grounds on Sunday.

Lakewood, a nearby community on the lake offers great shopping, restaurants, and other marina services.

Chautauqua Marina is just across the lake in Mayville for boat rentals and services. There are other great dining opportunities in Mayville, particularly, the Water Mark, House on the Hill, and Olive's.

Our condo is centrally located to all these locations. Enjoy breakfast on the balcony or a glass a wine, while viewing awesome sunsets. Our condo is equipped much better than the average rentals in the area. The is also great security provided by the gated community.

Beautiful Lake-front Condo In Gated Community On Lake Chautauqua
average rating of 4.375 based on 8 reviews

The property had Great Lake views and family space.

  • 4 of 5

The owners had appliances and items for preparing meals. The condo property offered the pool and pickleball and tennis courts which offered more activity. The lake area also has attractions which we visited.

Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

Layout of this condo was perfect for our family. Grandma and Grandpa at one end bedroom with own bathroom. Mom and Dad in master, sharing bathroom with 3 children in adjoining bedroom. In between the two bedrm areas was large living and dining area with lots of seating and a convenient well stocked kitchen. Great views from two balconies. Every sunset was more beautiful than the last! The condo area was centrally located to everything we wanted to do. Highly recommend The Springs restaurant across from the fabulous Midway Park (great for under 10 kids). Also found great Swedish foods and souvenirs plus cheese and produce at Peterson's Farm near Jamestown. Disappointed that the pool wasn't open during the weekdays but the season doesn't really start until school is out in the area (much later than in our state). Midway Park was also only open on a limited basis.(weekends) The owner was very helpful when we had questions and answered his phone promptly and got a couple of small issues resolved very quickly. Hope to return in the future.

Fun Winter Trip

We stayed with another family for 2 nights over New Year's (there were 6 of us). Condo was nice, clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed the fireplace. Stove is old and electric but works fine.
