Established in 2009, Off the Beaten Path has continued in the tradition of Independent Bookstores throughout the world, by providing a sense of community, curating titles for our customers, and offering a place for those of like-minds to convene.

Located in the heart of the historic Lakewood Village, just off the shores of Chautauqua Lake, our store will be just the break you needed from the daily grind. Before you relax on our porch with your latest literary find, be sure to pick up a coffee from our neighbor, Ryder's Cup.

Off the Beaten Path is family owned and operated by the Lingle Family. You can read more about them here: The Post-Journal
