The Ashland, built in 1901, an original Victorian guest house, with Eastlake furnishings, and reflects the heartbeat of Chautauqua Institution. Located just off Bestor Plaza, the center square for Chautauqua Institution. The central location is just steps to the bookstore, library, shops, restaurants and amphitheater.
The warmth, the civility, the tradition of a time barely discernible in a modern day hotel. Though The Vera is open for only nine weeks a year during the Chautauqua Institution Summer season, we spend much of the rest of the year painting, freshening, repairing, and replacing the worn with the fresh and new. When you enter your room, you will find the fruits of our labor of love…clean, comfortable rooms with a vitality that comes with the careful
blending of the old and new, tradition and modern know-how.
Porches, parlor, and kitchen, near Amphitheater in Chautauqua Institution. There are also 2 apartments, completely remodeled which are open all year with washer/dryers.
