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

Owner provided goody basket with S'mores ingredients, popcorn and a bottle of wine, a very classy touch. Great location. Owner permitted small dog.

Charming cottage with great view!

  • 4 of 5

Unfortunately, Mother Nature was less than cooperative and we cut our stay short. Obviously, this was beyond anyone's control. Heather was very gracious to offer us some suggestions for indoor activities and even called Webb's to get permission for us to use the indoor pool.

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

We've never rented and were nervous. This place was perfect for our family. The yard was great for the kids to play in and it was awesome to be so close to the marina to rent a pontoon. Overall great first experience.
