Beautiful Chautauqua Lake Real Estate

by : Nancy Gleason

Upstate New York is one of the most popular of the destinations in the Northeastern region. A country of beautiful lakes and rolling hills, the Chautauqua Lake area is renowned for its stately homes and excellent style of life. There is much to offer any new home owner in this area, as well as visitors and vacationers.

The Chautauqua Lake area is bordered by Lake Erie and has Lake Chautauqua as the centerpiece. This beautiful area has more than 1,500 square miles of amazing lake-modeled land . This area is also home to some simply amazing homes and properties. Like much of Upstate New York, properties in this area tend to be on the larger side, and combine lake front living with land parcels of up to 5 or more acres. The Chautauqua Lake area is possessed of a real country feeling that is far different from the busting atmosphere of the southern area of the state. In fact, the Upstate area is a favorite retreat of city dwellers and has been for many years. This has always been a place that is famous as a great location for vacation homes, and the entire area truly comes alive during the summer months.

This charming town is also the home of the Chautauqua Institution. The institution is a historic summer resort and during the summer months over 7,500 summer residents and some 140,000 daily visitors take part in seminars, summer courses, theater, symphony, and ballet. This area is truly a cultural center and provides more things to do and see than your average town. It is for this reason that Chautauqua is so widely known as a nexus for education and culture.
