I was born and raised in the city of Jamestown, and spent a great deal of time on Lake Chautauqua. I am employed by our local history museum as Education Director. My husband and I spent many weekends with our family on the lake. Before that, many weekends with my parents and siblings (my dad loved to fish). He loved this spot, especially the fishing in our bay. With this said, I am extremely familiar with Lake Chautauqua, and enjoyed boating and vacationing at our cottage with our children Mike and Lauren, as well as with our family and friends.
Sara purchased this Cottage in 1987
Why Sara chose Chautauqua
My husband and I were married 30 years until his passing. Our children Michael and Lauren are grown up and have moved away. We bought our cottage in 1987 and our family and friends have enjoyed it ever since. We both grew up in Jamestown NY, located on the outlet of the lake. Our parents pastime coincidentally was boating on Chautauqua lake. Of course we never new each other back then. After we met and married we would take Sunday drives around the lake while exploring every dead end and private drive wishing for a place on the lake. In March of 1987 my husband read an add in local classified newspaper listed by the second owner (built in 1949). We drove to the cottage, met with the owner, fell in love with the cottage, made a deal and the rest is history.
What makes this Cottage unique
Location, Location, Location! How many times have you heard that? It's so true... Surrounded on three sides by a nature preserve with plenty of outside area, was one of the top reasons we fell in love with our cottage. Being one of the few cottages left on the lake that hasn't been torn down and replaced with modern lake mansions or added on to in every direction...its still in its original condition. I did however, put a foundation underneath which raised the cottage up a few feet, and replaced the porch in 2016. The kitchen, bath, flooring and heat and air system are newer, yet the place has its old cottage charm with all modern amenities. Still has original tongue and groove knotty pine planks on interior walls with original hardwood flooring through out the bedrooms. You can't help but love the way they built the large window group facing the lake. Exterior is painted clapboard along with a brand new large screened enclosed porch with stunning view of the lake and close to all the action in the upper deeper part of the lake.
