The Athenaeum sits grandly on a tree-shaded hill overlooking picturesque Chautauqua Lake on the grounds of the world-renowned Chautauqua Institution in the southwestern corner of New York State. Serving guests in style since 1881, and now listed on the National Historic Register, this Victorian treasure is a full-service hotel appointed to make your stay a relaxing respite.

Gingerbread-style cottages, quaint shops, a library, post office and charming gardens nestled together create a living quilt reminiscent of small-town America nearly a century ago. And the Athenaeum Hotel is at the center of it all.
