A Western New York State Village & Lake With The Same Name Less than 5 Miles From Peek'n Peak Resort, 15 Miles From Chautauqua & 20 Miles From Erie PA.


The Lake is not a large lake, only about three miles in length and 300 acres in size, but the fishing is great for bass, walleye, muskie and panfish. It is also very calm and thus excellent for all types of boating including racing.

The Village of Findley Lake was settled by war of 1812 veteran Alexander Findley who in 1815 built a dam to power his mill and thus created the lake from two ponds. The settlement that grew up around the mills prospered and by the 1890's you could just about buy anything you needed in Findley Lake. The Lakeside Assembly on the southwest shore entertained and inspired during the summers between 1895 and 1915 with programs that rivalled Chautauqua Assembly, at the Chautauqua Institution .
The Assembly was reached by two steamboats, the Silver Spray and the Daisy.

Findley Lake is actually located within the town of Mina, Chautauqua County, New York and is a four season getaway for not only those who love the outdoor life of hiking, biking, golf, fishing, hunting, boating, skiing & snowmobiles (Peek'n Peak Four Season Resort is less than five miles and all Village & Town roads are approved and marked as snowmobile trails) but, who also enjoy the communities unique antique & specialty shops as well as restaurants, bed & breakfast & country Inns.

In addition the the local Chamber Of Commerce which was formed in November, 1993 currently has over sixty members and is growing.
