Bird-Werner and Shaw House Newly Renovated Porches



UPDATED: Scholarship Information

Welcome to the Ecumenical Community of Chautauqua (ECOC). We offer affordable housing during the 9-week Chautauqua season. Our three buildings are located within steps of the Amphitheater in the heart of Chautauqua.

We are a non-profit denominational house providing low-cost accommodations to individuals and families of all faiths. While sharing the kitchens and porches, guests can enjoy affordable meals, lively discussions, and opportunities to form lifelong friendships.
