Its opening coincides with that of the new National Comedy Center, which opened three miles away in Jamestown, New York, Lucille Ball’s birthplace. The 37,000 square foot, $50 million National Comedy Center is the first state-of-the-art museum dedicated to an appreciation of comedy as a healing art form.

The Chautauqua Harbor Hotel is in the village of Celoron, near the house where Lucy grew up.

The garage at the Celoron, NY house where Lucille Ball lived has been painted to resemble her iconic polka dotted dress.

It was built on the former site of one of Lucy’s favorite places, Celoron Amusement Park, which closed in 1962. It had a zoo, bandstands, a theater and the Phoenix Wheel, then the largest Ferris wheel in the world.

A controversial 2009 statue aptly dubbed “Ugly or Scary Lucy” designed to depict the actress in the well-known Vitameatavegamin commercial is still in the park. A more realistic 2016 statue that has gained the name “Lovely Lucy” has been added.

Back at the hotel, there’s fine dining, perhaps the Chilean Sea Bass or Grilled Filet, with a view of the lake. Afterwards, enjoy the glow of the fire pit out on the patio, a drink at the Carousel Bar, and, at the end of the day, the sumptuous bedding in the guest rooms.

In the morning you can wear one of the plush robes to fetch some of the complimentary coffee or tea available on each floor. Perhaps you will find the time to enjoy the hot tub or one of the swimming pools. It is a perfect start to the fun that awaits.
