Testimonials Page

Julia & Rick, We really appreciate the hard work you put into selling our lake house. It was above and beyond expectations. Come see us in Florida. Thanks Again! We love you guys. Ted & Susie
Julia, Thank you for your professionalism and counsel in helping us to get here. We love this house! Beth & Steve
Dear Rick, Thank you so much for helping us find our little slice of heaven. You are a delight to work with and we so much enjoyed meeting you and the guidance you gave us. Yoli & Earl
Julia & Rick, We cannot thank you enough for all you did for us on the sale of our house. You certainly went far beyond the call of duty. Should anyone ever need a reference, have them call me. Mike
Julia, We're back in Ohio for a few days and I wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for your help in finding our new home at Snug Harbor. You're a true professional and we appreciate all your efforts on our behalf. Even though we hit a couple of snags along the way, everyone we worked with was very professional. We enjoyed meeting Randy Rhinehart at the closing. I think he has sold Phil on the idea of snowmobiling. So, my husband who initially couldn't understand why I wanted a second home in a cold weather climate now wants to spend part of the winter up there. I especially enjoyed working with Jeff Hanson. He was very helpful and determined to get our problem with Experian straightened out. What would have taken us months of correspondence to correct, he was able to get resolved in a matter of days. Although I have never met him in person we developed a good working relationship and he was very responsive to all our calls. The people who bought the gray house behind our still haven't been able to close on their sale. They were initially scheduled to close on May 16th. Again, Julia, our thanks; and should we find ourselves in need of a realtor in the future, or should we have the opportunity to recommend a realtor to others we will certainly send the business your way.

The benefits of living in a winter wonderland

While those who live in warmer climates like to make fun of our Western New York winters, we know that winter season is important to our economy our businesses and our quality of life. Chautauqua County is fortunate to experience all four seasons in a way that helps bring our local consumers out of their homes and people from outside the area into our region. This is good for local business.
Winter sports encompass more than just skiing. Snowboarding, ice fishing, ice skating, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, winter hiking, and snowmobiling are all winter sports that not only provide activities for people, but also support our local economy. Numerous restaurants, lodging, and retail establishments all rely on winter sports enthusiasts to help boost attendance and revenue during the winter months.
We are fortunate here to have a number of events and venues that cater to those seeking winter pursuits. Peek’n Peak Resort in Clymer is a prime location for skiing and tubing. Cross country skiing is popular at the Audubon Community Nature Center near Jamestown and at a variety of parks around the county including Lake Erie State Park at Brocton and Long Point State Park near Bemus Point. Chautauqua County features over 200 miles of snowmobile trails, all groomed by dedicated snowmobile club members. Ice fishing is as convenient as walking your equipment onto one of our frozen lakes: Cassadaga, Chautauqua, or Findley Lake.
Not only do we find things to keep us busy during the winter months here, we actually celebrate the season! The annual President Day Weekend Winter Festival is scheduled for its 31st year from Feb. 16-18 at Lakeside Park in Mayville. Organized by the Mayville-Chautauqua Community Chamber of Commerce, this marquis event draws thousands of people each year to participate in family-friendly winter games, enjoy a nighttime bonfire, and view fireworks near a specially built ice castle. Anyone who wants to volunteer to assist during this year’s Winter Festival is welcome to contact Mayville-Chautauqua Chamber Coordinator Debby Marsala at 753-3113 or at dmarsala@chautauquachamber.org.
The Snowflake Local Living Festival will be held at the Audubon Community Nature Center February 3 from 10am-4pm with fun for all ages including sled dog demonstrations, crafts, and exhibits. Take a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the grounds of Chautauqua Institution weekends through the month of February.
If you’re a photographer or painter, professional or amateur, Chautauqua County is a prime spot in the winter. The natural beauty in our landscapes creates beautiful pictures to be captured on canvas or camera.
Even if you have never tried winter activities there are easy ways to start, with many local retailers offering show shoe rentals, and with ice skating rentals available at the Northwest Savings Arena. Give it a try! The only thing you have to lose is winter boredom.

Let’s Ride – Carefully

Some, But Not All, Snowmobile Trails Are Now Open
The Chautauqua Lake Snowmobile Club announced this week that four of its snow groomers are currently down, but that the majority of the county’s snowmobile trails are now open for snowmobiles.  AP file photo

After a month of weird weather ranging from unseasonably warm temperatures to above average snowfall, Chautauqua County’s snowmobile trails are now open only a week behind schedule.
The Chautauqua Lake Snowmobile Club announced this week that the trails were open as of Thursday, just eight days after the originally planned opening date at the beginning of snowmobile season on Dec. 20. The delays came first in the form of a lack of snow and exceedingly muddy trails, but consecutive weeks of harsh and heavy snowfall transformed the trails into a snowscape requiring many man hours and equipment to clear.
“CLSC trails will be open (today), but ride with caution,” the club announced in a statement. “Snow is deep and wet underneath. It may also be hiding branches or fallen trees. Snow banks at road crossings are a major safety concern, some nearing 6 feet high. We are trying to open them up. Some signs may be hidden in the snow. There are still a few gates we are trying to get open. Please stay on the trails. Our landowners have been more than generous.”
The announcement added that the trail to Busti is still closed, and four of its 10 groomers are currently down, making for difficulty in getting all the trails as navigable as they could be.
“Grooming will be limited and some trails have not been checked, so ride safe and with a partner,” the announcement concluded.
The county offers over 450 miles of snowmobile trails, which take riders across rolling foothills, open meadows and forestlands.
These trail systems are the result of a strong collaboration among Chautauqua County’s five snowmobile clubs: Chautauqua Lake Snowmobile Club, Cherry Creek Sno-Goers, Ellery Sno-Cruisers, Lake Effect Trailbreakers and Sunset Drifters; and hundreds of landowners, volunteers and other key stakeholders.
Snowmobile registration can be done at any of the County’s three Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) offices and registration is $45 for snowmobile club members and $100 for non-members. DMV offices are open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Monday through Friday and each office has one day a week where they are open until 5:45 p.m.
The Dunkirk office is open late on Mondays, the Mayville office is open late on Wednesdays and the Jamestown office is open late on Thursdays.
To learn more about the county’s snowmobile clubs, and to keep updated on trail conditions, visit chautauquasnow.com, cherrycreeksnogoers.com, ellerysno-cruisers.org, trailbreakers.com and sunsetdrifters.net.

Chautauqua Lake Funding A Small Step In The Right Direction

More than $6 million in improvements are on their way to Chautauqua Lake.
The money can’t come soon enough.
Last summer likely won’t be remembered as a good one for Chautauqua Lake. Blue-green algae blooms popped up for much of the summer and fall. Weeds and vegetation have been a recurring problem for nearly two decades, with last year no exception to the rule. There is no single fix to the lake’s algae and weed problems, but improving septic and sewer systems around the lake is one of the best ways to remove phosphorus and other nutrients that are part of the cocktail that create blue-green algae from the lake.
It has been estimated that completing a new sewer system around Chautauqua Lake will cost about $81 million. There is obviously not that much money in Chautauqua County’s collective couch cushions to pay for that, nor is there an ability to take out loans for that big a cost. Roughly a year ago, Rolland Kidder, a Stow resident and former state Assemblyman, wrote an op-ed to The Post-Journal detailing the difficulties over the years getting state support for sewer and water projects because they lack the “sizzle” of bigger projects. The cost and lack of sizzle have left some wondering if completing a sewer around Chautauqua Lake is a pipe dream.
The state’s investment of $5 million for a sewer extension in North Harmony and $1 million to help the Chautauqua Heights Sewer District Wastewater Treatment Plant project is only about 7.5 percent of the total cost of sewering Chautauqua Lake. More importantly, the size of the grants are a sign from the state that they realize the importance of Chautauqua Lake environmentally and economically to Chautauqua County.
The five townships that surround Chautauqua Lake constitute 40 percent of the property value of the county with a total assessment of $2.7 billion. Protecting that asset is just as important as shiny new buildings. And it is good to see the state come to the realization that a healthy Chautauqua Lake will bring more tourists to Chautauqua County than any new building.
