First off, this property actually has 2 units for rent and each has its own kitchen. There is the main house plus a separate main level 2 br 1 bath apartment. The main level apt can be rented with main house for additional room (additional rent and subject to availability) or rented separately as VRBO listing 863151. Each unit has separate private entrances. However when rented together an interior door can be unlocked providing a "lock off" scenario allowing interior access between the units if desired.

We are a 'Chautauqua Family' for sure! Mom attended Chautauqua on an art scholarship when she was 17 years old and fell in love with the unique charm of the world renowned Chautauqua Institute. Fast forward many many years (my how time flies) and now we have aunts and uncles owning homes next door and one block over, with family and friends galore relishing any chance to visit and recharge their batteries in the ambiance of Chautauqua!

Easy! Location!! This property has the unique characteristic of being the only one of its kind! How so? It sits right at the gate to the Chautauqua Institute (30 steps front yard to Chautauqua North/Elm Gate!), with all the benefits and convenience of being actually in the Institute. Result- you have the same convenience but with so much more privacy and flexibility including:
1.) Guests do not need gate passes to visit you!
2.) No restrictions on guest visiting hours!
3.) No expensive Chautauqua parking passes required with plenty of parking space available on the property!
4.) Priced less than half of what you would pay just 25 yards away!
5.) Huge Yard! Space Space and more space!
2 units to choose from! (See other VRBO listing 863151. Its all about cost/benefit with renting at the Chautauqua Gateway House! You get all the convenience of staying in the Chautauqua Institute with additional flexibility not available from a rental inside the institute, all for about 1/2 the cost you would pay for similar rentals only 25 yards away!
I can't say enough how much we enjoyed staying at the Gatewayhouse! It was the best of both worlds! We were steps from the Chautauqua Institute Trolley, or a short 6 minute walk to Bestor Plaza, but at the same time not forced to have the $65 daily gate pass! My husband could pick and choose the best times to pay for gate passes and usually opted for the 2-8 pm pass for only $13! Same with my teens! We saved hundreds in gate pass costs alone! Given that the Gateway house was half the rent for our other option 100 feet away on Stoessel and we saved over 2k for the week!
The property itself was fantastic, loved the huge yard and back deck/patio for hanging out. Being able to have our parents in the attached 2 br apartment was priceless! They were always a few feet away and we could walk between the units thru the interior door when needed while having the much needed space/privacy. Finally Nina was THE BEST and accommodated anything/everything we needed and a mere phone call away. Can't wait for 2014 season! Julie T-Rochester NY
