We stayed in Room 10 at The Ashland (the sister guesthouse) over the long 4th weekend and it was a delight. Yes the building is old, but the Victorian style is part of the CHQ experience! This is the Chautauqua Institution so if you aren't familiar with the way Chautauqua works it would behoove you to do some research prior...

My husband booked this place for a surprise 40th Wedding Anniversary. He was not told when he made the reservations what Chautauqua Institution was about. In fact, he was never told about the gate pass he would have to purchase...imagine the shock when we were asked to pay $480 for 4 days. Julie was never around the entire time we...

Upon arrival, we found that it that it was much smaller than would be suitable for our family and worse, it hadn't been cleaned after the previous tenant checked out. But...

After a couple days I got to love the feeling of security and openess. There were two kitchens on my floor...

We wanted to stay at a place that offered a daily rate (hard to find in Chautauqua) and on the grounds of the Institution. I'll start with the positives - great location! Walking distance to Bestor Plaza, the lake, right in the center of the grounds. The neighbors put up colorful Christmas lights spanning across the street, so you always...

Having spent many summers of my youth at the Chautauqua Institution, I was excited to be able to return after many years with my own family recently. Yet, as I researched my lodging options over the internet, it became apparent to me that finding daily rates was going to be quite limited. (Most properties rent only by the week or...

There is a difference between old, charming and well-kept and old and run down. This place being the latter. It's a room provider, some with private kitchen and bath. -the charm of the old house has been compromised by neglect and every modernization done in the cheapest way possible; plumbing run all over the walls (I have never seen sewer...
