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.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is in a great location. It is very relaxed here. We have a small wooded area and a private beach which is really one of the best in the area. There are also so many things to see and do within a 30 mile radius of us. Also since we are right next door we are we will do anything we can to make sure your stay is memorable and enjoyable.

Beautiful countryside experience near Lake Erie

  • 5 of 5

Small, lovely furnishings, close to the lake, my favorite feature is the large gated porch which the dogs adored. Everything is provided re linens, appliances, etc. A quiet, countryside setting, I look forward to our next visit there.

Myself and 4 of my friends stayed at the cottage for some steelhead fishing. It was a great choice!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is clean. We were a 2 minute walk to a beautiful beach. Chatauqua creek is even within walking distance.

Quiet getaway yet close to town

  • 5 of 5

This was my second visit to Fern Cottage and this time I stayed twice as long. Sea glass hunting on the beach, which is just a short walk down a private road, is excellent. The owners, Dale and Dave, are kind, thoughtful and always available if you need something or just have a question. It is less than a 5 minute drive into town and there are several very good restaurants there as well as the farmer's market on Saturdays. If you like lighthouses, there is one a few minutes down the road in Barcelona and a little further away, one in Dunkirk which you can tour. Driving the roads down to Jamestown and further south into Pennsylvania is just beautiful and the fall colors made the drive even better. I am really looking forward to my stay again next year!!!

Awesome place would visit again!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. We spent a week at the cabin in mid September. The place has a private entrance to the lake, which looks and feels like an ocean minus the salty water of course. We brought our two dogs with us and we all had a wonderful time off- well deserved must I say. The cabin is fully furnished and very comfortable. The hosts respect your privacy and happy to help if you need anything. We would definitely visit and stay at this cabin again.
