wonderful property for a few families

  • 5 of 5

there were 9 people staying here and no one was on top of another.We all loved the hot tub,especially since the weather changed and it was cool.There was a problem with the coffee pot and within a few hours there was a brand new one delivered. I would recommend the property to any one.We ALL had a great time.The Herrmann's knew it was our 50th wedding anniversary and left us a nice bottle of champagne and a lovely card.Very nice people to deal with.

A perfect week on Chautauqua Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished up a great week on Chautauqua Lake. From the beginning Laura was a pleasure to deal with - a smooth transaction with regular and effective communication.

The house was exactly as described. We had friends and family in and out through the week, and there was more than enough space to comfortably accommodate from 7 to 11 people during the week.

The house was clean, nicely appointed, and very comfortable. We used the kayaks, corn hole game, the bikes and the hot tub. Everything was in great shape, and worked out just right. We rented a pontoon and used the dock to tie off with no problems at all.

If you have a large group, do not hesitate in renting this house - it is as advertised and fantastic! Thank you for a great week - I hope we are able to return next year!

All the best,

Bill and Family

Peaceful, quiet, roomy retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time here. The house had ample room for two families - 12 people. We had plenty of room to spread out, but of course we spent most of our time being together - either in the kitchen / living room area or outside by the fire pit. There are plenty of linens and dishware, which always helps make it feel like home. We enjoyed kayaking on the still water and sitting on the swing at the end of the dock. It rained for part of the time, but with so much room available inside, we could all find something to do to pass them time - video games, reading, watching golf, sleeping.....

Thank you Laura and family for sharing your wonderful hide-away. We'd stay here again anytime.

Right house, but wrong location and time of year

  • 3 of 5

The house was spacious and served all our needs. However, there was quite a bit of algae in the lake. From what I am told this is quite common especially in the later months of summer at south end of Lake. The algae and other debris (dead animals) from the lake piled on the small shore near house. It the sight was unwelcoming but the smell was unbearable. The house manager was quite friendly and responsive. Within 36 hours men were there cleaning beach as best as possible. However, we had to shut all windows and could not enjoy sitting outside even after clean up.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry Sarah. I'm glad that you liked the house. The condition of the lake is really beyond my control. I'm glad that the lake commission were responsive and cleaned the area in front of the home. I did send over an extra donation to make sure that they were extra motivated. I'm very disappointed that my home received three stars. I always try to do my very best but the condition of the lake is something that I can't help.

Great house for 6 adults and 6 kids under the age of 8. The owner was great to deal with.

  • 4 of 5

I think this house and Lakewood are great for young families. You're a mile from the very cool, quaint downtown Lakewood area. Only 1-mile to grocery stores, Starbucks, etc. Bemus Point is only a short car ride or boat ride away. The house has plenty of room and all the amenities we could have wanted, including toys and bunk beds for the kids. I would highly recommend this house!
