We stayed in Cottage C3 right on Lake Chautauqua with 6 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. We have been visiting the Mayville/Bemus Point/Chautauqua area on Labor Day Weekend for 23 years with our family. This family has grown from children, to grandchildren and now great grandchildren. We have stayed on both sides of the lake, but the last 16 years...

We rented cabin A9 and knew what we were getting after visiting We Wan Chu first, before we committed with a deposit. It is definitely "cabin" living but not "roughing" it. With all the amenities at the "resort" for kids, it really is a relaxing vacation. There is several coin laundry machines available which is a great convenience for our...

Location could not be better. The owner and staff are very nice and make you feel welcome. We loved the new indoor pool, the bonfires, and the great boat rental. We lost count how many fish the kids caught on the pier. The kids loved the playground and hanging out with other nice families. Thank you for the amazing long...

My sister and I rented a two bedroom duplex cottage and enjoyed all the amenities WeWan Chu had to offer. The cottage was simply furnished and met our needs. We really loved the large indoor saltwater swimming pool. The cottages are conveniently located to Chautauqua Institute (which has free admission on Sunday's), Lilly Dale Assembly, Jamestown, and Amish communities. It...

The staff at We Wan Chu is extremely inviting. Right from the outset, my group and I could tell that we were in for a very nice experience for fourth of July weekend. In addition to the beautiful and modern country chalets, we had the pleasure of renting a 22 foot pontoon boat to stroll around beautiful Chautaqua lake. I...

Two years ago I paid my first visit to this lake and had such a great time with my brother Red that I wanted to share the experience some day with my son Izaak. That opportunity came at the beginning of June 2014 and as expected, the early catch and release bass season New York has to offer did not...

Thanks to Peter and his staff for a great weekend. I have been fishing on Chautauqua Lake for the past 21 years and staying at We Wan Chu for the past 16 years.

How does the owner of this place sleep at night charging $150 a night for a two rm shack that the doors don't look half the outlets don't work and only one burner on the stove works. Besides that there are only TWO forks and one dinner plate. The beds are the worst I have ever slept on with plastic...

Can't beat this resort in the Chautauqua Lake area!! Cabins are right on the lake with great views. One of the best boat docks on the lake; well lit at night and good fishing right off the end. We Wan Chu's lake swimming area has a sand bottom, or if you would rather, the resort has a huge indoor pool...
