My family and I have been coming to Point Chautauqua for over 50 years and my parents and cousins have shared a house since the 1960's. We purchased this huge house after renting it for several years during our family reunions.

This house is thought to be the third house built at Point Chautauqua and was completed in the late 1880's as the home of Ward Cadwell whose family owns and operates a cheese shop in Dewittville. We are only the fourth owner of this home in over 125 years.

Point Chautauqua was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and has been designated a historical site by the State of NY.

The Point Chautauqua Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996. Portions of the text below were adapted from a copy of the original nomination document. [1] Adaptation copyright © 2009, The Gombach Group.

The Point Chautauqua Historic District in Chautauqua County, New York is located on a peninsula along the shores of Lake Chautauqua in southwestern New York State. The site is approximately three miles from the village of Mayville. The Point Chautauqua Historic District is a planned resort community that was laid out in 1875 as a Baptist camp meeting to the design of landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, Sr. Within a generation, the religious retreat had evolved into a resort community, which continued to develop in that mode throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The eighty-acre Point Chautauqua Historic District is characterized by its serpentine street system, which ascends the steep wooded slopes of its lakeside site, and its collection of single-family residences from throughout the period of significance.

The Point Chautauqua Historic District occupies a promontory on the northeastern shore of Lake Chautauqua, an eighteen-mile-long, irregularly shaped body of water confined within a deep valley. The hills rise 'en echelon' above the lake on either side, displaying the rounded forms typical of this glaciated sector of the Appalachian Plateau. At an elevation of 1,309 feet above sea level, Lake Chautauqua is one of the highest large fresh-water bodies of water in the country. Its waters drain through the Allegheny River into the Ohio-Mississippi system. These natural features have provided the district with a lush, sloping landscape bordering a curving waterfront. The Point Chautauqua Historic District covers a hilly area ascending steeply (105 feet) from the shore of Lake Chautauqua.

Point Chautauqua Historic District is almost directly across the lake from the Chautauqua Institute

large charming lake house

a great lake house!
very clean with modern appliences. charming with many original fixtures. hardwood floors, poured glass windows, a back staircase off the kitchen leading to a bedroom that probably served as a maids quarters.
owners are attentive, concerned and reasonable and kind.
photos reflecting the property are accurate. firepit, new gas grill were useful and fun.
kitchen came equipt with industrial size rolls of seran wrap and tin foil - wow!! hope it was ok to use, because it was very handy.
this has been our second summer with the new owners and our fifth time renting this beautiful property.
needless to say i would recomend it to anyone.

This is a beautiful older home. Plenty of room for large families. We enjoyed how quiet the neighborhood was during our stay. No barking dogs, Very little street traffic. Chautauqua lake is a beautiful place. We enjoyed walks down to the lake each day. The owner communicated all needed information for an enjoyable stay. We will stay here again.
