'The Nest' cottage is located just a stones throw from the grounds of Chautauqua Institution. Situated in Wahmeda, a tranquil lakeside community with expansive yards and gardens, it is a restful vacation haven, and just a few minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of all Chautauqua has to offer. The Chautauqua Elm Gate is just a 5 minute walk away. From here you can walk about 10 minutes to the Plaza and Amphitheater, or take the tram to all activities. Of course bike riding is the best- and there is a bike path so you do not have to travel along any busy roads to get to and fro.
Our cottage is beautifully decorated and we are seeking renters that appreciate this and will care for our treasures as you would your own. Luxury linens, dishes, etc. are provided and the kitchen is well equipped.
Our 2 bedroom cottage is comfortably furnished with our collection of antiques, designer details and special finds.
The main floor has a very large, living/dining area which opens to a large wrap around deck. The deck has lake views, beautiful trees, comfortable furniture with a lounge area and a dining area, and of course, a gas grill.

We are Joan & Bill. We live in Columbus, Ohio where we have lived for many years.
Bill is an accountant, Joan is a designer and owns a gift shop. Bill is a photographer and is continually inspired by the Chautauqua landscape, rolling hills, and the challenging golf courses! Joan spent every summer of her youth at Chautauqua - her Dad was in the symphony and Chautauqua has always been her home away from home.
“We purchased the cottage after we fell in love with Wahmeda. The proximity to the Chautuauqua grounds is ideal, yet it is away from the frenzy, offering peace and tranquility from our busy lives. We think it combines the best of both worlds!”
Chautauqua Institution is a world reknowned cultural center and summer festival. From classical music and art, to lectures and church services- Chautauqua is unlike anywhere you have ever been and there is NO PLACE else on earth like it!!
Please visit the website for Chautauqua Institution (ciweb.org) to see all that Chautauqua has planned for the upcoming season.
