Car: Recommended

Findley Lake, a Western New York State village and lake, less than 5 miles from Peek n' Peak Resort, 15 miles from the Chautauqua Institution, and 20 miles from Erie, PA. The 300 acre lake is great for fishing (NY State license required and available locally for purchase): bass, walleye, muskie, and panfish. Excellent for all types of boating and waterskiing. Hiking and snowshoeing just outside our back door. Winery tours nearby. Lovely area to enjoy outdoor family activities.

Findley Lake is a four season getaway for those who love the outdoor life of hiking, biking, golf, fishing, hunting, boating, water skiing, snow skiing, and snow mobiles... but who also enjoy antiques, specialty shops, and restaurants.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We love Findley Lake. We purchased our adorable cottage as a second home and liked it so much that five years later we moved here full time. We live right across the lake, and so are available if you need us. Andrew is a retired Biology teacher, and JoAnn (happily) left the corporate world and now sells antiques in town.

Why the Owner Chose Clymer, NY, USA:
Quietly beautiful, Findley Lake's amenities and weather make it an ideal place to live. Probably the best kept secret in NY state. Shhh! Our cottage is often described as "adorable". First built in 1900 as a fishing cottage, it still retains its old fashioned charm, although it has been updated with creature comforts. It is so sweet and cozy...a pleasure to share with our guests.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We enjoy the small town atmosphere of the Village of Findley Lake, where everybody knows your name. Many families have held their homes and cottages here for generations. The look and feel of the historic village and surrounding community and farmland bring back life in small town think it is life as it should be.
