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

The cottage was perfect; cozy, clean and comfortable.

Our stay was made extra special by little touches like paper products, s'mores kits, firewood and everything needed for grilling. We would definitely stay here again.

Charming cottage, beautiful lakeside dock, tranquil views. Great place for a nighttime fire. We enjoyed the sailboats each morning. Nice location close to the Insititue. Owner was terrific, very responsive and accommodating. We would definitely return!

Lovely lakeside cottage

  • 5 of 5

Husband & I spent a week at Marten's Cottage. It's a nicely maintained 2 bedroom cottage with an eat in kitchen, dining room & living room with an awesome view of the lake. We kept our pontoon boat at the dock & had fires in the fire pit almost every night. Enjoyed many of the area restaurants.

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.
