Size is one major difference. WLE is a very large community with a bunch of ammenities. LWE is much smaller, much quieter. Not a whole lot of ammenities, but more space between the houses, a bit more privacy.

Both communities are nice. There are alot of people that come up for the summer and some homes may be rented out also to vacationers.

Thanks everyone for your input. It's a hard decision to make. I have four children so I would like to make sure that there is something for all of them to do.

I am home owner in WLE since 2000 and find it to be extremely well run.

http://www.wleonline.org/

is the official website. They have updates and post all meeting meetings. There is also a private forum for homeowners to discuss issues within WLE. The website can tell you all the amenities that WLE has.

Besides all the amenities, I believe the John Carney, the General Manager is one of the best. Always available to address concerns and with a outstanding maintenance and security staff. We are in the process of updating our excellent sewer and water system, the roads are continuously maintained and improvements to all amenities are constantly explored.

We have an active BOD and involved community. The finances of the community are in great shape with reports to the owners given monthly and timely through the website and the quarterly newsletters.

Besides all the practical matters, there are numerous community events throughout the year - parties, bbqs, dances, dinners, etc.. It brings everyone together.

I am a part timer and truly appreciate all the work that is done and that I wouldn't have time to do. I think that is an important factor to consider even if you plan on being a full time resident. It always amazes me the amount of time people volunteer to make WLE a better place.

Like all communities, nothing is perfect. Homeowners have different visions of what they want to see implemented, but I believe by and large most are happy with the direction WLE has been going.
