A terrific stay!

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't do the house justice. Beautiful kitchen and bath. Great jumping off point for Niagara Falls and Cleveland, both two hours away and Erie and the Allegheny's under an hour away. Check out the Lucy & Desi Museum in Jamestown. The beautiful lakeside village of Bemus Point is just a short walk away. Kayaks and bikes on site just add to the great time. Wonderful time spent with owner Dave and chatting with the neighbors. Two thumbs up! Thanks to the Jetts! Don't worry you get used to the traffic noise on I-86

Nice Place

  • 4 of 5

Overall, the place is very nice. Positives--lakefront, nice dock, nice yard, nice house, lots of bedrooms, nice porch. Negatives---very old gas stove, no air conditioning downstairs, noise from bridge. All being said, I would rent again in a second as the positives far outweigh the negatives.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The air conditioning issue will be addressed eventually. Interesting - you and your group were first time renters of our property...we've owned this house for 3 years and originally put a brand new stove in the old kitchen. We remodeled the kitchen just before this 2017 season and wanted a "retro" kitchen. We bought a 1940's vintage stove and built the kitchen around it! Other renters we asked said it worked fine, especially the oven, holding temperature. Did you have a specific issue with it ? We would repair any problem. Glad you would stay with us again!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, modern with an antique twist. There is a roomy yard and 12 of us comfortably "lived" there for a week. Very clean. Although some don't like the bridge being there, we had a blast seeing how many people we could get to beep at us. We were fortunate enough to meet one of the owners when we arrived and he was very nice. We will definitely be staying at this house again. Thank you for sharing the home with us!!!

A fantastic location and a great lake cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay!

LOCATION

I grew up in the Chautauqua Lake region before moving away so I knew getting a house in Bemus Point would be the best location on the lake, as Bemus is full of great shops, bars, restaurants, music, and more. Our week there confirmed that, and we had a great time walking and biking into town each day (about 15-20 min. walk or 5-10 min by bike). We had kids with us, so all the side walks were greatly appreciated, especially since we were teaching my nephew how to ride a bike! Bemus is super safe too, we left our bikes out at the house and never locked them up in town (although I probably would have locked them if we biked into town at night). Another perk about the location that was particularly great was that we were just 2 minutes walk from the best breakfast spot on the lake, The Bemus Point Inn, and about 5 minutes walk from the convenient store/pizza shop/liquor store, called Bridgeview.

COTTAGE

The cottage is average size, has a small kitchen which might make it hard to cook for big families if you're not using the grill outside, but the rooms were all ample sized, plenty of seating, and a nice sunroom to relax in. Parking for 4 cars. The cottage is super clean and has a retro lake cottage appeal to it. The new bathroom upstairs is amazing and right out of a Pinterest photo or magazine. It has a clawfoot tub, a sink made from a sewing machine table, and fantastic decor. My ONLY complaint about the cottage itself is that there are no ceiling fans in any of the rooms, so it may be wise to bring your own fans if you're staying in the hot summer months.

YARD

The backyard was a nice size with two picnic tables, a fire pit, and is well shaded which was great for all the kids we had! There is also a grill, which made cooking for all of us much easier. The dock was nice, but unfortunately there is a good bit of seaweed in Chautauqua Lake which burnt up our boat's water pump. My advice is make sure you go into reverse at least a few times while dredging out of the seaweed line. Lastly, if you're looking for an uninterrupted view of the lake, this house may not be it as it looks out onto the Chautauqua Lake Bridge, and you can hear the traffic when outside. We just wanted the lake access and this house was a great value for the size, amenities, etc. so we were not bothered by the bridge!

All in all, we had a fantastic trip and we definitely plan to rent here again! Stay here, you will not be disappointed!

The location on the lake is great for us and the house is roomy and comfortable perfect for our family. Looking forward to spending our vacation at your place next year.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Aside from the noise of traffic(which we are not used to)we really enjoyed our stay on this property. The house had plenty of room for our family of 9. The accommodations were great and the yard was nice and roomy. The owners are very helpful and easy to work with. Thank you for having everything available for our use!
