Chautauqua Lake Cottage

Although the Stow-Away is geared toward summer and what is considered "THE SEASON" which generally runs from early June until late August at Chautauqua Lake, The Stow-Away is a "Heated" Four Season Cottage and lake House. With four seasons, the Chautauqua Lake region offers plenty of outdoor recreation. Sports on land, water and snow, wine-tasting, magnificent views and undisturbed landscapes while hunting, ice fishing, hiking, cycling, birding, ATV trail riding, snowmobiling and cross country skiing.

The Stow-Away does have limited availability for those that would like to spend the off-season holidays at the lake. There is no better place to be after a long day of holiday shopping in Lakewood, located just 7 miles from the Stow-away or in Erie Pa, located just 30 miles away. The Stow-Away is available for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New years, Valentines day, Easter and other favorite off season holidays. Consider The Stow-Away for birthday parties, kids parties, family reunions, etc. We offer gift certificates for those that would like to give as a gift. We hope you find the information and links helpful. Feel free to call (724) 553-6051 with any questions.
