Entrance to Lake Waubeeka is through a security gate which is controlled with electronic passes and codes. Residents, visitors and vendors have different ways of entering the community.
Residents/Renters: New homeowners and renters should contact email@example.com to purchase a pass that will let you open the security gate. Homeowners will need to provide proof of ownership and renters a copy of your lease. When this is done, you will receive a clicker or card to open the gate and your name will be added to the list of residents at the Guest Gate. Renter access expires at the end of your lease, and it is landlord responsibility to confirm renewal by email to firstname.lastname@example.org to assure continued access. Be sure to notify us if you sell or lease your home so the changes can be made at the dialer.
Visitors: Visitors to Lake Waubeeka enter through the Guest Gate. To use the dialer:
- Take off your sunglasses.
- Press the up or down arrow to highlight the resident’s name on the LED screen.
- When the name is highlighted, press the phone icon.
- The dialer will then place a call to that resident’s phone and they will be able to open the gate by pushing the “9” button on their phone.
Vendors: Occasionally residents need a gate code for a short term vendor who is doing work on their home. These codes are issued directly to vendors (not to residents) for a specified period of time. Residents may contact email@example.com to obtain the form, pick one up at the security gate, or print them here.

For the safety of our community, a 15 mile-per-hour speed limit should be followed at all times.
The Lake Waubeeka Association owns approximately 550 acres of undeveloped woodlands surrounding our community. This property is for use by all Waubeekans, and is not to be built upon. A nature trail begins across from the dam on Carol Street. Its entrance is marked by boulders and a chain.
Located at the north end of Post Road, the Community House is used for meetings, entertainment, and social purposes. Questions concerning its use by individual homeowners should be addressed to the Director of Entertainment.
All our athletic facilities (tennis, paddle tennis, basketball, bocce, baseball, and track) are open to the community. However, since there are homes adjacent to these athletic fields, we request that loud sports activities not begin before 9 a.m.
For the protection of your pet and the safety of the community, pets must be kept on a leash (unless they are in the fenced dog run area near the ball field) and should not be allowed to roam freely outdoors. Pet owners should respect others’ privacy and property. And don’t forget to “scoop the poop or suffer a fine.”
The beaches of Lake Waubeeka have designated swimming areas. Parents or other responsible adults are responsible for the supervision of children. There are no lifeguards on duty. Although motor boats are not allowed on the lake, rowboats, canoes, sailboats, paddleboats and kayaks are permitted as long as they have a registration sticker and are thoroughly cleaned before being placed in the lake. This is to prevent the introduction of invasive plants or animals into our lake. Don’t want your goldfish anymore? Give them to a friend. DO NOT dump them in the lake. Although Canadian geese are elegant looking and beautiful, their droppings can negatively impact our enjoyment of the lake and the beaches. DO NOT FEED THE GEESE!!
Two beaches border the lake: one at the intersection of Post Road and Carol Street, and the other at the foot of Paul Street. The quality of the lake’s water is regularly monitored. Unless otherwise noted, lifeguards are not provided by the Association, and swimming is at your own risk.
In addition to swimming, the lake is used for fishing and boating. No powerboats are permitted on the lake. Boats must be hand, foot or wind-powered. Boats may be left near the swimming beaches, but as a safety precaution we ask you to take your oars home with you.
If boats and associated fishing equipment are brought to the lake after being used in another lake, they must be completely washed at the members home prior to launching in the lake to prevent invasive weed species and Zebra mussels from entering the lake ecosystem. Killing Zebra mussel larva requires you use bleach or similar on all equipment which will be placed in Lake Waubeeka waters.
Most of the homes in our community border the lake or are set above it. This means that many things we do in our own backyards have residual effects upon the lake. Fertilizer run-off, leaks from septic systems, petroleum contaminants, phosphates, and misused household products end up in the lake. Please remember that the ecology of our lake is fragile, and depends upon our community’s vigilance.
