About Heather Mihalek

My family has lived here for four generations. Chautauqua Lake truly is a hidden diamond. It is a place where life slows down and people wave 'hi' on the streets. When we had the opportunity to buy this cottage we thought it was the perfect opportunity to expose people to this little gem tucked w/i the Southern Tier of the great state of New York. We hope you enjoy your stay and leave Chautauqua Lake with the same fondness we have had for so many generations.

Heather Mihalek purchased this cottage in 2010

A Week on Lake Chautauqua in June

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful cottage for our family of 4! We rented a boat from the marina just a short walk away, we went tubing and had long boat rides around the lake. This cottage is right across the street from a wonderful restaurant - Webb's, putt-putt golf course and an art gallery. The space of the cottage was perfect for our family of 2 parents and 2 kids. We had our own fire ring for fires by the lake at night and a relaxing dock to soak up some sun or dock our rented boat! I highly recommend this quaint, cozy, clean cottage to anyone visiting the area.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

You couldn't get any closer to the lake if you tried! The cottage was very cozy and perfect for our family of three, plus two dogs. Heather was great to work with and we immensely enjoyed the wonderful welcome basket. We stayed for a long weekend and were within walking distance to restaurants, miniature golf, a park, and the marina. Everything else was within a short drive. Be sure to check out Panana Rocks if you like to hike in the woods or the Chautauqua Belle steamboat for a relaxing cruise.

Everything about our vacation was perfect. Being a first time cottage rental for me and my family, we didn't know what to expect and were slightly nervous what our money went towards. We were pleasantly surprised, to say the least. Right away Heather was great. She offered any and all information requested about the area, and what there was to do around there. She sent me websites, and tons of tourist attraction information. She was great! The cottage was clean, and homey, and just perfect for the adults and children! Next time we visit Chautauqua, Heather will be the first person we contact! Thank you so much again!

A perfect week at the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting lake houses on Chautauqua Lake on and off since 1994. This year we chose to stay at this home because it was pet friendly and we were able to bring our dogs with us. This was by far one of our favorite places to stay! We arrived to an immaculate house with a welcome basket and fresh flowers in vases which was such a wonderful touch. The convenience of being walking distance to restaurants was amazing. We loved sitting outside by the fire and listening to the live music across the street at Webb's. We had 4 adults there all week and 2 (large) dogs and it still was plenty of room- we brought our boat and the dock was perfect for the boat or to hang out on. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the cottage and the entire booking process- we can't wait to go back!
