Cute! Cute! Cute!
I normally vacation at a family cottage near the ocean but my mother had passed away earlier that year and I thought it would be nice have a family get together to bury her ashes and remember her. I came across this house when searching for a place to stay online and realized it was in the same quiet neighborhood my mom grew up in. In fact my grandfather owned the Pine Hill motel for years and years. Square footage wise it seemed small so I was afraid it would be too cramped for us. At one point we had 5 adults and two kids in the house. We never felt cramped. The screened in porch is AMAZING! Its big and has TONS of sitting. We went in August but it was downright cold that week and we got to use the fireplace. So cozy! It definitely has a cottage feel so don't expect a gourmet kitchen or anything. There are three original bedrooms and a finished off second floor porch which acts as 2 bedrooms (perfect for kids). I had cocktails at the house before dinner on the day of the burial and I had 18 people in the house and it didn't seem crowded at all. The frontage on the lake huge for a cottage. There are so many nice touches to this place (like plenty of throws and they have spices they leave out in the kitchen) . We had a perfect week! I may be slightly biased as being so close to my mother's childhood home certainly did not hurt in endearing the cottage to me. Thank you to the owners for allowing rentals of their amazing cottage!
Near Chautauqua Institution which has many speakers, concerts, and other forms of entertainment throughout the summer season.
