Bemus Point Cottage Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, 8 Sleeps

Bemus Point is a village in Chautauqua County, New York, United States. The village is within the Town of Ellery and located along the eastern shore of Chautauqua Lake. The population was 364 at the 2010 census. Bemus Point is also home of the floating stage with many performers during the summer.

The ferry connecting Bemus Point and Stow, NY was founded in 1811 by Thomas Bemus. The original ferry was a raft built by Thomas, and had to be poled across the lake.[2] Today, a cable-drawn ferry exists in its place and is operated by the Sea Lion Project LTD [3] Until the nearby bridge (Now part of I-86) opened Oct 30, 1982, the Bemus-Stow Ferry was the only way to cross Chautauqua Lake. When closed for the winter months, motorist had to travel north-west to Mayville, or south-east to Jamestown to reach Stow. Either way was a 19-mile round trip. Local residents often purchased a seasonal pass to use the ferry, commuting to Lakewood, Sherman, or other areas west of the lake.

Throughout the 1800s, Bemus Point gained popularity as a tourist destination, which promoted its growth and development. By the early 1900s, a dance hall known as the Casino, which still exists under the same name, became a well-known venue for entertainment, particularly big band music.[2] Today Bemus Point is still a popular summer tourist destination, with a large influx of summer population.

In the summer, Bemus Point hosts its 'Bemus Bay Pops' concert which involves many local musicians and is also host to the 'Chautauqua Lake Voices', similar to American Idol.

Bemus Bay Cottage With Charm- Close To Lake And The Village Of Bemus
average rating of 4.0 based on 2 reviews

Nice house located on quiet street,1.3 miles from downtown Bemus and 15 min drive from Southern Tier

  • 5 of 5

Overall the house is exactly what we expected. 1.3 miles from downtown Bemus Point, 15 mins from Southern Tier brewery, located on a nice quiet street and right across from the Lake. Nice getaway if you're on a budget or in town for a wedding or just a quiet getaway. We had 6 people and a little Lab stay at this house, and we experienced no issues. Beds were nice, shower/toilet worked well. We didn't spend much time at the house since we were in town for a wedding, so the house served its purpose. The owner was very responsive and happy to help if we required any assistance. Would recommend to others looking for a quiet getaway.
