Bemus Point

Bemus Point is the largest community on the north shore of Chautauqua Lake. Its main attractions are its waterfront and its handful of good restaurants. In summer the population swells with vacationers who come from all over New York and Canada to enjoy the lake and the Chautauqua Institution, which is on the opposite shore.
