Let’s talk about travel to Chautauqua Lake, NY!
This place, located in Western, NY, and is kind of a hidden gem.
While back in the day it was a summer playground to many of the nation’s wealthy, it is still a popular place for locals and other people in the area. The lake itself is stunning, and there are plenty of things to do including getting out on the lake, visiting Lake Erie Wine Country, and enjoying a stay at a nice hotel along the shore.
So in this podcast episode, we’re talking about where to stay and explore near Chautauqua Lake!

I own a shop in Bemus Point so my heart sank when you said you didn't have time to stop in Bemus Point. I would highly recommend a day in Bemus Point starting with Breakfast at the Bemus Point Inn, a couple hours enjoying the shops and an Ice Cream at the Bemus Market, enjoy rentals from Bemus Bay Water Toys, Golfing, excellent food at EBC, Village Casino, Seezur House, and a famous "Rocker" drink while rocking in the rocking chairs at the Lenhart Hotel, a ride on the Ferry, and an amazing Sunset view.

I know, we had such a short amount of time there, and we were sad we couldn't make it there either! Always a reason to come back!
