Great Place---No Issues

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our time at the house. It was clean and well equipped and we had no issues. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. The dock was great for my boat! I would 100% recommend this place. The owner was a pleasure to deal with.

Your Home Away from Home

This house has EVERYTHING going for it: Perfect layout, spacious, white glove clean, beautiful decor, conveniently located, private. Kitchen new and well stocked with dishes, pans, et cet. Hugh deck on outside to entertain, fire pit. Dock was convenient for using our kayaks.

Owners obviously care about your stay. Upon arrival there was a highly organized binder with info on restaurants, places to go, et cet. A/c broke and within an hour they were working on getting it fixed. They even gave us their cell phone contact. Made an effort to meet us. Very friendly and helpful!

Absolutely Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a quick weekend trip yo Chautauqua Lak . This house was perfect! Very clean and had everything we needed. Quiet, comfortable and so relaxing. My kids were able to catch a few fish, wave to the boaters that went by and play in the yard. The fire pit was fun at night and the deck was perfect in the mornings. The house had everything we needed. Sue was extremely accommodating for our last minute rental. We will definitely be back! Thank you!!!!

Location perfect

  • 5 of 5

The lake house was extremely well kept and clean. The location made it perfect for going North to Mayville or South to Bemis Point and Jamestown. There is plenty exploring to do for shopping and no lack of places to eat. Also a VFW and American Legion are nearby.
