Chautauqua Lake Erie Wine Trail

  The Captain Storm House is a large brick Queen Anne revival home built in 1892 by a northwest coast retired sea captain who enjoyed both Lake Erie and Chautauqua Lake. The Captain Storm House is not only important from the outside with its unusual sweeping architecture, spacious porches and detailed appointments, but also has a wonderful interior. The Captain Storm House has paneled walls, pocket doors, coffered ceilings and two carved fireplaces with each of the main rooms of the Inn displaying a different light figured wood - curly cherry, sycamore, quartered oak, chestnut, figured maple and pine.

The Captain Storm House requires a two night minimum for a two to four suite rental of the whole house. A wonderful private getaway with four large private suites, each with queen size beds, sitting areas, and large Kohler garden tub and shower. The Captain Storm Suite features a large double Kohler Whirlpool and shower (175 sq. ft. bathroom). All rooms in our vacation getaway are furnished with many elegant late 19th century/early 20th century antiques - Victorian, Art Nouveau, Aesthetic Movement, Arts and Crafts and Oriental. The  Captain Storm House has DirecTV with premium channels, wireless and AC in each of the bedrooms. Guests  may use the large country fully equipped kitchen, formal dining room, library and two parlors. The 85 foot sweeping wrap around front porch is wonderful for enjoying most evenings. There is also a small private back porch high in the trees perfect for more intimate settings. Notice a picture of the Captain Storm House moving down Main Street from two blocks farther West in 2000.

Through the efforts of the National Historic Trust, the State Preservation Offices in Albany and the Landmark Society of Chautauqua County, Western New York we were able to save from demolition a nationally important historic home designed by one of the most well known and successful residential architects, George Barber. The Captain Storm House was moved in 2000 to Candlelight Lodge bed and breakfast property, restored and opened in 2004 as a B&B on two landscaped acres in the heart of the village of Westfield, New York. The Captain Storm House has a special consideration and importance with its listing on the National Register of Historic Places.

Our convenient location allows guests of the Captain Storm House to walk to the Village Park and shops. Within one block are convenience stores, banks, a full service grocery store, fast food, wonderful restaurants, medical center, post office and pharmacy for additional needs. Within a few short blocks is also Westfield Memorial Hospital, the Chautauqua County McClurg Museum and the Patterson Library which houses the Octagon Art Gallery. Each of these buildings are architectural wonders offering the history of Chautauqua County and its oldest community, Westfield.

Five miles south is Mayville, NY on Chautauqua Lake with Chautauqua Institution (15 minutes) only a few more miles.  West, one mile on Route 20 from the Captain Storm House is the  New York State Grape Discovery Center with history on the largest and oldest concord grape growing area in the world. The Discovery Center offers tastings and gifts. 25 wineries are located along  the Chautauqua Lake Erie Wine Trail (40  miles). All 25 wineries are within 20 miles. Five major wineries with wine tasting are within four miles of the Captain Storm House. One mile west of the Captain Storm House on Route 20 is also our Landmark Acres Antiques, a fine quality antique shop since 1946 offering "special pieces for special places".

There is a Farmers Market in the Village Park, two blocks away from the Captain Storm House on Saturdays during the summer. There are bike trails and hiking along Chautauqua Gorge. Many special events such as the Westfield Arts and Crafts Festival, the Westfield Antique Show and  the Art Trail Open Studio Tour occur in July. There are seven Special Wine Weekends throughout the year. Many fine choices for dining can also be found within a few blocks to a few miles.

Enjoy Lake Erie's Barcelona Harbor and Pier with the oldest natural gas Lighthouse in the country built in 1829. Barcelona and Interstate 90 are each one mile from the Captain Storm House. As the only safe harbor on Lake Erie for many miles Barcelona is one of the principle reasons for the large number of wonderful 19th century homes in Westfield. Successful 19th century businessmen in Jamestown needed supplies for their nationally known furniture factories. Westfield businessmen built themselves grand homes from supplying many of these needs overland to Jamestown. Westfield New York is also the original home of Welch's Grape Juice.
