New York, Part 2

Posted by Rebecca

At 41 miles in circumference, Chautauqua Lake is a sparkling summer destination for boating and fishing in Western New York.  While not considered one of the Finger Lakes, it is long and narrow – 17 miles long and just 2 miles wide.

There are several towns, villages, and settlements on the shores of the lake, including the Chautauqua Institution, a non-profit adult education center and summer resort, founded in 1874.

These photos were taken at beachy Bemus Point, population 362.



The Hotel Lenhart has been owned and operated by the same family since 1880, and overlooks scenic Bemus Bay.

  1. I wanted to say that I love your blog. And your courage to make a trailer chic, motivated and inspired me to do the same. Victoria Keith
