Smithsonian Magazine named Chautauqua the "Best Small Town to Visit" in 2014. The world-renowned Chautauqua Institution is located 6.5 miles away for guests who enjoy the performing and visual arts, lectures, classes and various recreational activities. This lake front home is a nice alternative to staying in the Institution.

Chautauqua Lake is a beautiful recreational lake great for boating, swimming, sailing and fishing.

Fisherman can test their skill and luck at catching a muskellunge or "musky"! Chautauqua Lake is known for this member of the pike family that typically grows 28-48". Bass, walleye, perch and sunfish are also common.

Bemus Point is 3 miles away across the bridge by car and is easily accessible by boat too. Enjoy lakeside dining, a beautiful walk along Lakeside Drive, bike rentals, shopping, ice cream shops, and more.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1958

About the owner: This property has been in our family for over 50 years. My grandparents bought it as a cottage and passed to my parents, who later winterized it making it a year round home. We've always called it "The Cottage". We lived in Buffalo but my siblings and I all grew up spending every summer here. My brother has owned it for several years and I was lucky enough to purchase it from him this past winter to keep it in the family! Its a very special place to make lifelong memories.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The view, the yard, the dock, and the feel of a home. You won't feel like you're in a rental here. The neighbors are also lovely people.
