My wife and I spent a week at Nothshore - through an RCI timeshare exchange - in late spring of this year - before the start of the busy summer season. We stayed in a beautiful, well-equipped, immaculately clean, 2 bedroom condominium located on the grounds of the famous Chautauqua Institution. It was perhaps the largest 2 bedroom unit we... More

Condo was clean and well stocked. Numbering on buildings need to placed in a more visible location (hard to locate from street) We would stay there again very pleased. Staff was great and very friendly

Friend office staff, clean and spacious accomodations.... great gas fireplace, and a wonderful porch to enjoy the sunsets. Unit we stayed in is at best location nearer the lake and sets over beautiful grounds. Have been here multiple years, and its great in the summer and even nicer in the fall and winter when the grounds are really quiet. Close... More

Unit very beautiful - nothing outdated, 2 flat screen tv's, comfy beds, more than adequate kitchen utensils, lovely gas fireplace, wonderful two porches - one overlooking courtyard/pool with view of lake! No complaints whatsoever and very very... More

So well organized as far as getting everything ready for our late arrival. Place was dated but clean and spacious. Loved the atmosphere and fireplace. The balcony made it a nice place to relax in the evening

We would rate this unit a little above average (if there was such a rating.) We are very familiar w/Chautauqua and "the season" so we are not evaluating it because we love it. We've been staying in the area almost every summer for over 20 yrs. 1st time on the grounds and we were excited. Compared to our home timeshare... More

This was our first and only vacation in two years and we found it both complicated and disappointing for several reasons. Primarily, because of the misguidance we received from the property rental office and the misrepresentation of the property. Originally, we were told by the property rental office RCI properties were available for trade and we needed to make arrangements... More

The North Shore properties was a great place to stay in the 80's but time has passed this place by. The property exterior is in average at best shape (heavy water rot and carpenter ant issues) but the interior is terribly poor. We stayed in unit D-5 which is a unit with 2 bedrooms, a pull out couch and a... More

My parents are timeshare owners, so they gave us a gift of a week's stay at The North Shore in Chautauqua, New York. We told them that we just wanted a quiet place with a... More
