About Sandy Shore Cottages and the Waupaca Area

Escape from life’s daily hastles to relax for a week on the famous Waupaca Chain O’ Lakes. Here in Waupaca, there is a saying “In all the world……no lakes like these”. You must experience them to believe the beauty. Twenty-two spring-fed lakes comprise the Waupaca Chain. Ancient glaciers left their imprint on the Waupaca countryside leaving rolling hills, deep ravines, swiftly-flowing rivers and many, connecting kettle lakes. Today, dense woods, comprised of hard wood trees and tall pines lines the shores of the Chain O’ Lakes. Lime in the sandy lake bottom give the clear waters of the Chain a Caribbean blue–green hue.

Along with the peace, quiet and beauty, there are plenty of activities in this vacation–destination area. Sandy Shores Cottages is located on beautiful Taylor Lake, the home of Clear Water Harbor Bar and Grill. You can kayak or paddle board over to the “Harbor Bar” for a burger, pizza or cocktail. Pier service is available. Adventuring a little further up the Chain, you can dock your boat or kayak and walk a few feet to another lake–front famous Waupaca landmark “The Wheelhouse”. It is popular to call ahead for their famous pizza for take–out on the boat. Live music abounds in the summer at several locations nearby. Hiking is available at nearby Ice–Age Trail or Hartman Creek State Park.
