Spring Leaf Pick Up

Lakeside Chautauqua will provide free Spring Leaf Pick Up from April 2-20. 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's 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.

Leaves can also be gathered in lawn waste bags and placed at the curb to be collected on trash day. Thank you for your cooperation.

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  / 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.
