My wife and I have been staying at the Lenhart each Summer for over 20 years, we look forward to the day we get our annual postcard in the mail announcing the coming season.
The hotel is over 130 years old, so make sure you have your expectations firmly established. This is not a state of the art resort, rather a charming step back in time.
Rooms are a bit small and definitely no frills - you're in Bemus Point for the atmosphere, not an ultra luxury hotel. The front porch is lined with rocking chairs and offers a spectacular view of Chautauqua Lake. Breakfast in the beautiful dining room is always delicious and included with your stay.
Be sure to request a room with a private bathroom (remember, 130+ years old). We always try to get room #11, it's on the third floor and is away from the front porch which can be a bit loud at night with people enjoying the night.
