There are no televisions or telephones in guest rooms. There is a television in the Guest Kitchen and a telephone with an answering machine in the office where guests may receive incoming calls. WIFI is available throughout the house and porches.


Applying for a Room:

Because of the growing demand for the limited accommodations available at Catholic House, the Chautauqua Catholic Community has established a

"lottery system" to assure equitable opportunities for room arrangements.

The rate for all rooms is $650 per week.  This is a room fee only and does not include a weekly gate pass to the Chautauqua Institution, parking fees, or food.


To Enter the Catholic House Lottery:

Complete the form on our website, located on the button above, and submit it

between October 15 and November 15th.


If your name is drawn in the lottery, you will be notified by January 1 as to which week you will be able to reside at Catholic House. If you are not successful, you will be placed on a waiting list and contacted should an opening arise.

All notifications will be by email only.

Full payment will be required by March 1 or your room will be reassigned.
