If the Tottering is not available for your vacation, change your vacation dates. It is a gem. Porches on front, side and back provide sun or shade any time of day, the surrounding lawn and gardens are colorful. Short walk to the lakefront.
The cottage is cozy and well stocked with every need: you could even bake a pie if one were so inclined. The kitchen is ample and the island allowed 3 people to prepare food without being in each other's way or access to,sink or refrigerator.
The living areas are cozy and there are little retreats tucked away in master bedroom, sitting area and wingback chairs by the gas burning fireplace. Afghans are plentiful for cool evenings on the deck or anywhere. Books, puzzles, games: something for everyone.
Pt. Chautauqua itself is a beautiful neighborhood on the historic register with homes and cottages whose architecture make an iinteresting walk. The cottage was lovingly restored by the owners whose progress is documented in 3 photo albums, very interesting viewing.
The owner met us upon arrival , was helpful, and was available via text or email during the stay for questions, if necessary.
We would definitely rent again when we need a place that sleeps 8. Two and one half baths were nice. When 8 year old granddaughter made a wish upon the first evening star, it was that she was" staying a whole week! " Alas, she only was there for a long weekend.
Good job, Sandy and family.
