We loved and plan to go back!
It is located very close to a lot of amenities and shopping (perfect, since I have two daughters), and just a short drive to Bemus Point and the Institution. We ventured out on the lake a few times – it was ideal having the boat docked right outside our front door. My extended family came down for a night, but ended up staying for two nights because they enjoyed the place so much.
When we first got there we worried that it might be a “busy” area with lots of vacationers, but in reality, as soon as we were on our patio it was obvious we were in for a quiet treat for the week. The owner had a kayak we used quite often – it would have been nice if there was a pair of kayaks rather than just the one.
Water lover's delight!Water lover's delight!
The inside of the house is super clean, well furnished and well cared for. We had plenty of room to sleep in the three bedrooms. The main living area on the first floor is not enormous and so this probably isn't the kind of place you'd want to stay if you plan to hang out inside for extended periods of time with a bunch of kids. But between the large porches, spacious upstairs, the park, and our love of water sports, it was never an issue for us.
Oh, and the owner is terrific! She is very friendly and totally accommodating! We plan to stay here again and we would highly recommend it to others, as well.
Excellent Getaway on the Lake!
Great time with family at this house!
It is a beautiful, clean, well-kept, spacious home. There are 8 of us, but with the two full-sized bathrooms, extra sitting area upstairs, upper deck and patio, it never felt crowded or noisy. We were surprised to arrive and find a fully-equipped, clean, kitchen. Usually rental kitchens are sub par and we end up schlepping everyone out to a restaurant for dinner. Not last year! We ended up going grocery shopping and cooking at the house so we could enjoy the beautiful, quiet of the dockside patio. We ended each night with s'mores by the fire pit. LOVELY!
Our family enjoys the Chautauqua area and we come every year to enjoy the Institute, Panama Rocks, wineries and brewery, beaches, and so much more. It's close enough that friends can take a day trip to visit us. This is a clean, pleasant home with bonus of linens provided by homeowner, usable kitchen, nice view off the dock patio and upper deck, and great customer service. For the first time in years, our vacation week went off without a hitch last year. Each year we choose a different house to rent, but since our experience with this house, we decided that if we are at the lake, then this is the house for us.
