The lake area in front of We Wan Chu Cottages has a beautiful Sandy Bottom which gradually drops off past the end of the dock. Our Swimming Area in the lake goes from zero to about four feet deep and is without a doubt, the Best Sandy Bottom Swimming Area that goes with any Cottages or Condominiums on Chautauqua Lake… A Putting Green, Recreation Room with ping-pong & foose ball tables, board games, horseshoe pits, sand volleyball court, basketball, swing sets and a large grassy play area.

Either way, we try very hard to make “Your Visit” an enjoyable one for sure. If your a Fisher person, the letters in our Fishing Guide should help You catch Fish along with the usual Great Fishing off of our Huge Dock Area.

If your a Golfer, our Putting Green should sharpen your skills a little bit better before You hit your Sticks on the Golf Course. And let us not forget the Big Picture, Chautauqua Lake is almost at your front door here at We Wan Chu Cottages.
