My family has been going to We Wan Chu since the 1970's and we intend to keep returning. It is a great place for kids to swim, fish and be outdoors. The facilities and cottages are clean and comfortable. The pool is great option when the weather turns, the dock offers great views and fishing. My blood pressure drops as soon as I step foot on the property.
We have been going to WeWanChu Cottages for 19 years and staying in the same cottage. We stay for 2 weeks every summer and have also stayed for 3 weeks. We have also spent some fall weekends there. It is the best place on Chautauqua Lake to stay. The cabins are clean and the gounds and pool areas are always clean. The staff at WeWanChu is very friendly and work hard to maintain the grounds while not interrupting your stay. Peter is VERY accommodating and always wants to know if there is anything we need. He remodeled our cottage over the winter and it is beautiful. The hardest part about going to WeWanChu is having to leave and come home. We already booked for next year and counting the days until we return. Peter has become a great friend and part of our family.
we've been coming to we wan chu for years with our kids with another family and their kids. this is a very family friendly summer lakeside vacation. We have a great time and plan to keep coming back indefinitely. Many of the other families we meet are also long-term repeat guests (decades!). the staff and owner are very friendly and accomodating and the cabins are clean and comfortable. we enjoy boating and fishing daily, the indoor pool and hot tub, the beach with a floating dock for swimming, nightly bonfires, as well as local restaurants.
We Wan Chu, Peter, and all of his staff has become part of our family tradition for the last 26 years - I was just 4 years old when we came to CHQ for the first time and it has become the tradition or entire family has looked forward to for many years. Peter is friendly, accommodating, and quick to help if every anything needs addressed. He’s worked very hard to continue to update the cabins each year - I.e., new flooring, couches, TVs, and kitchen appliances (we are in C3). This is a vacation for people who like to be outdoors, enjoying all lake Chautauqua has to offer. Not a vacation for people who want to sit and watch TV. It may not be a fancy hotel, but I give it 5 stars because it is a wonderful, peaceful place to visit.
We have been coming to We Wan Chu for well over 20 years now. What attracted us was the beautiful location, amenities and family friendly atmosphere. Our family looks forward to their week at the lake every year. There is so much space and many things to do right here, but you also have so many other options for entertainment close by. The indoor heated pool is a big plus on rainy days. I don't think you can find a better place or better location for the money.
