Chautauqua Institute

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!

The lake…

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
