Fall Leaf Pick Up

Lakeside Chautauqua will provide free fall leaf pick up from Monday, Oct. 22-Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018. Download the schedule. To ensure that the leaves are picked up in a safe and efficient manner, please note the following:

Leaves must be placed in wind­rows, if possible, about one foot into the pavement by 8 a.m. on the day of pick-up. If the leaves are left too far toward the middle of the street, or in a large single pile, passing vehicles may tend to redistribute the leaves, making it difficult for pick-up.

It is very important that branches, stones, green vegetation or other foreign objects are not placed in the windrows. This will damage the equipment and/or possi­bly cause injury to the maintenance operators. Thank you for your cooperation.


Curbside Recycling & Trash Services

Lakeside’s curbside recycling and trash services are offered at 7 a.m. Tuesdays and Fridays from May-Labor Day.

Recycling service resumes its once-a-week schedule on Friday during September. Trash service resumes its once-a-week schedule every Tuesday from Labor Day-May.

Recyclables and trash may also be taken to the large receptacles across from the South Gate Parking Lot year round. For more information, visit our Resources page.


2018 Important Gate Announcements

Starting Memorial Day weekend (May 25-28) and continuing through the Chautauqua summer season (June 16-September 3), the gate hours are as follows:

  • Fifth Street Gate: 24 hours a day/7 days a week.
  • South Gate: 7 a.m.-11 p.m. Sunday-Wednesday; 7 a.m.-1 a.m. Thursday-Saturday (includes the South Gate booth, Welcome Center and Route 163 black iron gate outside the South Gate Parking Lot).
  • East & West Second Street Gates: 7 a.m.-11 p.m. Monday-Friday; 8 a.m.-11 p.m. Saturday & Sunday.

During closed hours, the South Gate Parking Lot will be accessible from inside the gates, and exiting will be out the Fifth Street Gate. The shuttle will continue its regular route from 7 a.m.-11 p.m.

In order to control traffic, Lakeside is asking those who already have a Daily, Weekly or Season Chautauqua Pass, and don’t need to purchase a pass, to use the East or West Second Street Gates when possible.

Attention Homeowners: The ‘Will Call’ purchase and ‘Pick Up’ window for your guest passes is now located at the Welcome Center (near the South Gate), open from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. every day. You can also purchase ‘Will Call’ passes at the Hoover Ticket Office and deliver them to the Welcome Center for your guests to pick up.

‘Will Call’ passes will no longer be sold at the Fifth Street Gate, nor be left there for pick up. Homeowners can continue to purchase all passes at the gates at any time, with the understanding that passes for your guests be left at the Welcome Center for pick up.

Lakeside Chautauqua Realty Property Management Agreements Due

Lakeside Chautauqua Realty (LCR) is requesting homeowners who plan to rent their cottage in 2018 to submit their Property Management Agreements promptly. The urgency for this request is to better serve homeowners and cottage renters, as LCR will now update rental listings, start promoting available cottages and book reservations as soon as agreements are received, rather than waiting until February. It’s strongly suggested not to wait until January to submit the Property Management Agreement to receive this new benefit.

Agreements were mailed to homeowners in October. For questions, contact LCR rental agents Denise Monak and June Cantu at dmonak@cros.net / jcantu@cros.net or (866) 952-5374, ext. 348 / ext. 334. LCR would like to thank homeowners for opening their cottages to Lakeside guests and the opportunity to serve you.

Homeowners Guide

As a resident in a National Historic District, each homeowner is, in effect, the caretaker of a treasured piece of history. Owners know that older homes take attention and special care. However, Lakeside Chautauqua cottage owners have seen their efforts rewarded, not only in beauty and charm, but also in property values that have risen significantly more than comparable housing in surrounding areas.
