When you think of New York, you probably envision tall buildings, bright lights and cement or the bustling crowds of people and noisy traffic, Madison Avenue or Wall Street…
We are the other side of New York. We are the Enchanted Mountains of Cattaraugus County in the Chautauqua-Allegheny Region in Southwestern New York; where beautiful scenery displays forested, rolling hills and clean, sparkling lakes, rivers and streams; quaint villages and friendly people, with events and activities for all interests.
Come away from that fast paced, hurry-scurry life and relax in the Enchanted Mountains of Cattaraugus County. Here you can participate in a plethora of activities – OR NOT! Whatever you do for relaxation, you can do it here in our serene, peaceful locations.
Unwind in the tranquil setting of Allegany State Park. Travel along NY’s Amish Trail to experience a step back in time.
