About the property

3 bed, 2 bath, 2,000 Sq. Ft, Family lakefront cottage with spectacular lake view

Come stay at Bailey’s Beach House on Lime Lake, we’d love to have you! Pull right into the attached garage and get your vacation started! Enjoy beautiful lake views or fall foliage from the expansive deck right off of the family room, a warm night by the wood burning fireplace, skiing at Holiday Valley or Holimont, shopping and eating in nearby festivals, playing a round at one of many nearby golf courses, or just getting away to spend time with friends and family!

Wake up to the sunrise without leaving your bed through the sliding doors in the Master Bedroom. Step out onto the deck to watch sunsets while enjoying a glass of wine with friends, go ice fishing or skating on the lake in the winter, or take a swim in the summer! The possibilities are truly endless.

Our large lakefront cottage has plenty of space and amenities. When you are done enjoying the lake or nearby activities, relax by the fire pit, have a BBQ on the grill, read by the fire, take in a movie on the HD TV, or spend some family time playing a board game or doing a puzzle!

We sincerely hope you’ll make wonderful vacation memories at Bailey’s on Lime Lake


Bailey’s Beach House is located on Lime Lake (in Delevan, New York). We're an hour south of Buffalo, NY and just a short 15-20 minute scenic drive to Ellicottville, NY (Holiday Valley - Aspen of the East), 40 minutes to Allegany State Park, and 40 minutes to the Salamanca Casino, less than an hour to Letchworth State Park, and an 1&1/2 to Niagara Falls.

Another perk of our cottage is that the entry is at road level. This provides a fantastic view to the lake but also makes it very accessible for those who cannot or would prefer not to walk down dozens of steps to get to the house.


Wood-burning fireplace, dock with boat hoist, grill, fire pit, attached garage, recreation room with walkout down to the water, HD TV, Blu Ray DVD player, wireless internet, expansive walk out deck. In the summer we also have a swim platform, a pedal boat, and a kayak for use by renters (bring your own lifejackets please). Please note that there is not a sand beach on our property but you can walk right out into the water or enter from the dock.


We try to provide everything you will need to get you started on your vacation right away! You only need to bring: food/beverages and bath soap & shampoo.

About Brian Bennett

My wife and I grew up and still live in nearby Rochester, NY. We are avid travelers who love new experiences and meeting new people. We both have fond childhood memories of spending time at family cottages. We knew since we were first married that we shared the same dream of owning our own cottage and creating those same memories for our family and friends. When we found Lime Lake we knew it was the perfect spot for us. Now that we have started our own family, we have never been happier to have this cottage on Lime Lake. It has been a dream come true for us and we look forward to sharing that with you and your family.

Brian Bennett purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Brian Bennett chose Lime Lake

We first found Lime Lake on a ski trip with friends. We were struck by how beautiful the lake and the surrounding areas were and how accessible it was from so many fun and exciting places. After our weekend trip we immediately knew we would be looking for a cottage on Lime Lake and 8 months later, we found the one!

We have now seen the lake in all seasons, and it always has something to offer. It is a perfect blend of relaxation and fun. It is large enough to use power boats but small enough to freeze over for skating and ice fishing! There are enough activities so close by but it is quiet enough to relax. We love this cottage and this lake. This is how we feel about this cottage and we hope you do too.

What we didn’t know when we bought the house was the best part of all; the people of Lime Lake. Within hours of our arrival we were greeted warmly by our neighbors. Every person we have met has been genuine and kind. They are fun and honest people who have always offered to help as we continue our adventure of cottage ownership.

Quaint house on Lime Lake, NY

  • 4 of 5

Spent a long weekend. Cozy house w/ plenty of room for at least 6 people without feeling crowded.Large back porch overlooking the lake. Beautiful view. Really tranquil & really quiet. Close enough to a Salamanca Casino & also Ellicottville if you want peace of country yet close to activities. Didn't do the extra features of house, like bonfire or games or foosball table but would have if our stay was longer. All in all... I would recommend it!

Perfect Location for Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Bailey's Beach House! The cottage was the perfect size for six adults, with room to spare. The view of the lake is so relaxing, especially from the gigantic deck where we spent most of our time - drinking our morning coffee, reading in the Adirondack chairs, and grilling our "family" dinners. The fire pit was perfect for s'mores. We brought our kayaks, and during the week we practically had the lake to ourselves. It was awesome. The house had everything we needed - you really do only need to bring food, clothes, & toiletries! We were close enough to Ellicottville that we spent one day hiking at Rock City, and went out to brunch. There are also a few restaurants in walking distance. The best part is really just being lakefront. We would love to come back someday. Thank you for a great week!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you had a great time and thank you for taking such good care of our cottage! We love the location for the same reasons - you can spend a serene day on the deck or lake with it all to yourselves or jump into Ellicottville or Arcade (or other towns) and enjoy something else. We are glad to hear your enjoyed the deck so much, we tend to "lose" a good part of our mornings out there as well!

Terrific Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Boy were we in of a vacation ...but we needed it to be close and affordable...we hit the jackpot. The lake was gorgeous and the fishing was great. Even when the rain came there was plenty to do in the house. Plenty comfortable for six people...Tom was attentive and gracious. Thanks so much!

Owner's Response: Very happy to hear from good renters that they had a good time! We keep meaning to find out more about the fishing; we certainly see a lot of it happening and hear it is very good; glad it was great for you! We always hope people can feel relaxed in a place that is new to them and we want you to start your vacation right away, so we're glad you found it comfortable!

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a long weekend with friends. Excellent accommodations and location on lake. Home (nicer than your typical cottage) was roomy, came fully stocked with necessities, including linens and a grill, and was very clean and comfortable. Lake was cool, clean and very swimmable. Fish were plentiful, right off the main dock. We had several children with us, ages 5-8, and all had an excellent time hanging out by the fire pit, fishing, and jumping off the floating dock into the water. We all agreed that we would rent this home again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review and taking the time to do it. We are so happy to hear the kids enjoyed the floating dock, we had just finished it before you arrived! I'm glad to hear you felt you had everything you needed to enjoy yourself, that is what we hope for! You were great renters and we would love to have you again!

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place and beautiful view. Could have spent the whole time on the beautiful deck, which had sun traps but a shade area when it got too hot! Cottage was very clean and comfortable. Name was misleading as there was no beach... But between relaxing on the deck or having a fire or out in the water we didn't miss a beach :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review! It is always a pleasure to have great guests. So glad you enjoyed the deck, it is our favorite part too. The comment on the name is helpful too, we never thought of that, it is a good point and my wife and I are discussing alternatives (we just really like the name). In the interim I will make a note in the description that there isn't actually a beach. Thanks again for staying and leaving the place in wonderful condition. We hope to have you again!
