To locate us once you have reached the Chautauqua Institute:
Chautauqua Institution is a gated resort community. Please note that the Institution charges separate gate feesranging from $35-$60 per person per day and parking fees from $6 per vehicle for the Season. These fees are separate and are not included with your reservation. We recommend arranging for these passes before your arrival. For more information contact the Chautauqua Institution Welcome Center at (716) 357-6250.
Gate and parking fees do not apply "off"-season.
During the Chautauqua Season automobiles are only allowed on the grounds for dropping off and picking up baggage.
The Spencer is a non-smoking establishment.
Stores within the grounds are open for a limited number of hours and certain articles, especially medical supplies, may be difficult to secure once here. The nearest major medical facility is in Westfield, which is approximately one half-hour away, and the nearest pharmacy is in Mayville (5 miles).
