About Janet Stanek

Born and raised in the WNY area, I found this property while searching for the next family getaway and immediately fell in love. Each year we do some upgrades to this home as our "master plan" is to make this our retirement home (someday!). Our permanent residence is only 90 minutes away so we both use the place ourselves - and have equipped it as a full-time home, and we are very close by should any needs arise. We welcome renters throughout the year to enjoy the magic this home brings to family and friends.

Janet Stanek purchased this house in 2010

Why Janet Stanek chose New York

With a very quiet street on one side and the water on the other, this property is both convenient and a welcomed retreat. Only four miles away from a variety of shopping, you walk out the front door and step right into your boat to take off for a day's adventure on the lake. Perfect for the serious fisherman, but even more than perfect for the family looking to spend some time soaking in the sun and the fun.

What makes this house unique

Dock space right out the front door.

Plenty of room and great sleeping arrangements.

Fully supplied with everything you will need.

Continual upgrades.

Close to the Chautauqua Institution, Bemus Point, fine dining and Panama Rocks.


Very Good! 4.2/5 -

Great for R&R

  • 5 of 5

Needed a getaway and some rest and relaxation... And this was perfect.

The area offers much to do, or as little as preferred. I opted for the latter. Peaceful area, clean and comfortable. I'd recommend for any length of stay. It's just like home with all of the amenities.

15 minutes away from Bemus Point for lunch at the old casino, a little shopping and an ice cream. Wineries galore....and a great place to rest your head.

Use of the patio, upstairs porch, grill, hammock, WiFi, board name it!

Look forward to visiting again in the fall.

Great for families or couples.

Two thumbs up!

Great family unit

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvelous time . We stayed in the owners unit since we had a bigger family. The kids had a good time and loved the kayak. We also brought our jet skis . The kids loved the lake. Our friends a few houses down let us borrow their paddle boat . This was so much fun and we were able to see the beautiful scenery. We also spent the day in Niagra falls which was about 1 1/2 hours away. I suggest you get the Chatauqua lake vacation brochure which shows a lot of things to do . The Gorge was beautiful and the kids loved to swim there.

Great for a girls' weekend

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I rented this unit for a getaway weekend. There were six of us and we had plenty of room, though some of us shared the larger beds. This is a very clean and comfortable rental! The kitchen is well-equipped and there's a shopping district not far away, so we were able to cook when we wanted to and could find a variety of restaurants to choose from when we didn't want to cook. Unfortunately, it was a cool and rainy weekend, but we still spent a lot of time outside on the big covered decks and kayaked when the weather broke. The location is very quiet and you can easily walk over to the lake. We hit the Chautauqua Institution and Southern Tier Brewery, both of which are a short drive away.

We loved and plan to go back!

Great Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My family rented this property for a week this past summer. It was a great spot in many ways. Right on the water leading out to the lake, large outdoor patio and porch, side yard for games, ample parking, and great sleeping arrangements. The rental was very well stocked – we literally just needed to bring ourselves and our food.

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!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent Memorial Day weekend here with our four children (ages 2 to 11). We loved it! We docked our WaveRunner at the property and had easy access to the lake via the canal. We grilled out and ate our meals outside on the breezy, shaded lower porch and when we weren't out on the lake, we relaxed outside on the upper balcony and watched people paddling kayaks and paddle boats through the canal. There is a really nice park a short walk away with excellent basketball and tennis courts along with a playground and wide open fields where the kids played frisbee. A movie theatre, an ice cream shop and mini golf are all very near the house.

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!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this location in what most would consider the 'off season' for the lake but we enjoyed it very much! We had our three children who had plenty of their own space- yet felt right at home in the cozy atmosphere along with a nicely equipped kitchen where I felt more at home! There were a few tiny shops in walking distance along with town activities we were able to enjoy even in the slightly chilly months with out having to travel very far. The overall accomodations were wonderful and I do plan on returning- hopefully sometime in the summer to enjoy the lake! Thank you for a wonderful family experience!
