The Foggy Bottom Lodge

Foggy Bottom Lodge

This rustic lodge sleeps 4 and has a fully equipped kitchen, indoor bath with hot water, and a comfortable sleeping area where you can relax and discuss your hunting adventures.


The Foggy Bottom Lodge is located on 200 acres of private land nestled in thousands of acreage of undeveloped river bottom in Chautauqua County, New York.  The Lodge provides uncommon accommodations for bow hunters looking for an exceptional experience and impressive game.


You will not find this experience elsewhere in Western New York. This virtually untouched piece of land is hidden from normal traffic to keep the game and land pristine, and we intend to keep it that way. The proprieter of the land will reveal the location of the land on the first day of your trip.
