About Dale Mathews
We have lived in the area ever since we got married in 1989. We both grew up coming to the beach here as kids and in fact the house that we live in was a seasonal family cottage that we have turned into a year round home. We have always loved it here and we have 6 kids and they all also love it here.
Dale Mathews purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Dale Mathews chose Westfield
We bought this property because it is right next to our home. We feel that we are very blessed to live in such a beautiful place and we love to share it with others.

Lovely Cottage and Wonderful Owner
This was the second stay for my wife and I at Fern cottage. We came back this year after a great experience in 2017. Once again, everything was wonderful; charming, clean and enjoyable cottage with access to a beautiful private beach. Unfortunately, we had a family emergency and had to cut our stay short. The Matthews family was extremely considerate and helpful as we had to leave abruptly early AM on the second day. We appreciate their understanding and will definitely return again in the near future.
The place was beautiful quaint and spotless. Very homey feel, with sweet welcoming touches.
Private street in a perfect location. Short walk to private beach area. Peaceful and well kept. Everything you need is in the cottage. The place is close and conveniently situated to nearby restaurants shops and activities as well as easy access to the highway. Dale and her family were very pleasant and helpful. We would stay here again and again. Our kids are teens and we traveled with my elderly mother and our family dog, every one enjoyed themselves. Something for everyone.
Great quiet spot close to the lake
Perfect place to take our small kids, easy access to a quiet spot on the beach. Really loved that we could bring our dog, even he had a fun time in the lake. House was easy to find, the perfect size, clean, comfortable, and stocked with plenty of games and things to entertain the kids during the rainy days.
So glad you enjoyed your time at our cottage and hope you'll come back again.
Cozy and comfortable with access to a great beach on Lake Erie
We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The walk to the beach is short and easy. Make sure to get to the beach for the sunsets. Westfield,NY is a really nice area to explore and experience and Fern cottage was a cozy, clean and comfortable place to stay.
relaxing and fun
We enjoyed our stay at Fern Cottage tremendously. The property was well kept and as advertised. The walk to the beach was short and well-maintained. Short drives to wineries/breweries, fishing spots, and other small town events gave us plenty of activity and dining options when we didn't want to just hang out at the house or the beach. Mostly we did just stay at the beach, though, because it was amazing!! The family who rents the cottage were very hospitable and helpful. I highly recommend staying here and have already suggested it to several friends I think might be interested in a similar trip.
Relaxing stay at Fern Cottage
Very cute beach themed cottage, we loved all the beachy decorations! The cottage is clean, cozy and comfortable, has a nice deck and beautifully landscaped yard. There's a short walk to the beach down a well-maintained path. We go for the beach and fishing, you won't find a better beach and it's very close to Chautauqua Creek. There were times when we were the only ones on the beach. A couple of nights we had a fire on the beach and stayed for the sunset which was breathtaking! We will definitely stay here again!
