Get ready to take a walk along with us through the Chautauqua Institute. It’s a 750 acre area where people go to rest, relax, learn and listen. Many come for educational, musical, artistic, and theatrical retreats. However, because of its location… on the beautiful Chautauqua Lake in Chautauqua, New York many come to vacation here as well.
Many of the houses
are of Victorian Style which are surrounded with fabulous floral gardens. Some may be rented but most are owned.
We went to visit a friend here and loved her charming home. We shared a bottle of rose wine which fit perfectly with her front porch pink decor!
So many houses with such charming details!
is 17 miles long and 2 miles wide. Lots of area for boating, skiing, and fishing.
The Miller Bell Tower is an icon at the Institution.
Many residents depend on its chimes for the time of day. It is a memorial to one of the Institutes founders, Lewis Miller.
Come along to view more of the beauty that you may find on your visit here.
I hope that one day you will be able to visit the Chautauqua Institution and see all its charm!
Thank you for spending time here with us at Two Trails One Road.
Until Next Time ~Nancy

And you show why upstate New York in the summer is just about perfect, Nance.
Well thank you sir! It’s a gorgeous area!
Happy Labor Day Weekend to You Mr. Mark!
What a lovely setting! Thanks so much for sharing this beauty with us Nancy.
It’s a gorgeous place! I would love to see this place in the Autumn!
Oooh, I bet it is beautiful in the fall!
Wonderful photos and tour. Love the architecture and gardens. You captured the quaint charm and character beautifully.
Well thank you my lovely friend.
I would enjoy going back in the Autumn.
I heard that many of these homes with the large front porches have specially built tent like covers with zippers to cover and shield from the winter snow.
This is one gorgeous area. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen quite that many beautiful homes and all so well landscaped. I could see Better Homes and Gardens doing a spread. 🙂
These homes and this place have been in magazine spreads. Chautauqua also has sister places around the states. There is a place in Colorado and another place in Ohio I am aware of.
They are all mostly known for their education, art, theatre and music.
By the way… Many of these homes are million dollar homes.
Wow I love those houses!!!
Nancy, what a beautiful place to visit. The architecture and quaintness and of course, the gardens are stunning. I would love to stroll around here, but strolling virtually was a treat indeed. Thanks you for sharing at Gardens Galore sweet friend and Happy Labor Day!
It was my pleasure to share for Gardens Galore! I am headed over to see all the gardens now.
What beautiful pictures and charming homes. I have always held a dream of a porch and a swingseat….surrounded by flowers. Thanks for sharing, Nancy and Happy Labour Day. <3 xXx
Same to you my friend! These porches were incredible!
Each picture is more beautiful than the last🌿
Well thank you kindly my friends!
Oh my goodness!!! This is bringing me back to my childhood!! I went here once when I was very young and remember being absolutely amazed by the homes. Thanks for the nostalgic walk down memory lane 🙂 I may have to send this post to my mom!
It congers up sweet memories for many who have spent time here in the past.
So glad you enjoyed this post and hope your Mom will too!
