What to expect
Whether it's for a week
or a weekend we are here to make this one of the best vacations you've
Getting here and checking in are most important. If you don’t follow the directions closely,
you will end up lost in “the country”. It makes a rough start to a
As a small property, it is difficult to be on premise 24/7. We
will ask for an approximate arrival time. It is our policy to be
on premise 1 hour before and after the time you wish to arrive.
If you have a delay-please call-we are very flexible and wish to
accommodate you. As owners of a small Inn we wear many hats, it
is necessary to get groceries, run errands, etc. There is much
to do. After 20 years we have learned that things happen, we do
not “wait around” for check-ins (some guests have come 2 days late).
You will be given our cell phone number so we can work with whatever
time you plan to arrive. We wish to accommodate you!
Concierge Service: You bet! We are better than hotel concierge. We are "locals"
born and raised. If you need help with anything, we can tell you
how to get it or where to find it. Buying property? We can tell
you the good and bad. Good restaurant? "sit at our table".
Good fishing spot? Want to know what there is to do? We can fill you
in on all of it-all to make the most of your stay.
Meals/Breakfast: We serve breakfast only, each day at 9:00a.m. in the
main house. Breakfast is only served during our summer season.
Weather permitting you may also get to enjoy our "breakfast by boat".
For examples of our delicious breakfast visit our recipes page.
Our chef is great, and no, you can't take him home with you.
Room Service: Of course if you are in need
of towels, toiletries, or other complimentary items we are pleased to
provide more, we do not, however provide meal room service. (Please do not confuse this with cleaning which is provided daily)
Rooms: All rooms
have a private bath, queen bed, lake view, and individually
controlled air conditioning.
Ordering In: You are welcome to order
"take-out" food and pick up or have it delivered to the Inn,
however local restaurants will only provide delivery during the summer
season. We have many great restaurants nearby, 3 within walking
Things to Do: There are so many! Visit the attractions
cell phone services work in our area with the exception of T-Mobile.
We do have a phone in the main house for local calls but there are not telephones in each room.
Air Conditioning: All suites have
individually controlled central air conditioning and all rooms have
individually controlled window units for your personal comfort.
Law Enforcement: Whether you
stay with us or decide on another property in the Chautauqua area,
PLEASE obey all traffic laws. We have local, town, city, county
sheriff, Chautauqua County Lake Patrol, Chautauqua Snowmobile Patrol,
New York State DEC, New York State Park Police, and New York State
Police (many of them). They all love tourists! They all
carry guns and are able to write tickets. On the up side-you are
visiting an area that is one of the safest in the country.
Cleaning: You can expect your room to
be immaculate. Our cleaning staff has been with us for years. We
are proud of the work they do. Sheets are changed on request. Towels, bed make-up, and light
cleaning are done daily.
