Stopped here for our second visit in the past six months. Once again, we like the fact that the property is off the beaten path, and not in the main "core downtown area" of the city. Very wispy, winding river setting, with extremely tall pines all around - reminscent of a european villa. Many renovations had been taking place we...

Located directly on the famed Eagle River, which we're told is the access point of the areas great 28-chain of marquis lakes (which is why this is one of our most favorite resort areas of Northern Wisconsin) we always look forward to stopping at this oasis of the North when we travel the area.

This is a reasonably-priced typical northern WI spot hosted by a friendly man named Fritz. The #1 room was small but clean, and the TV and shower worked well. Fritz is a font of knowledge regarding the area, and his sightseeing tips were spot on.He was also very helpful in providing a couple of small extras that had been left...

I stayed in cottage #1 in July 2012. The cottage is small yet offers everything you'd need for a simple get-away. The bathroom was clean and modern, and the view from the screened in porch was nice and relaxing. If you're looking for fancy, this is not. if you're looking for a convenient location, with a nice view, this is...

Edgewater Inn is a simple and comfortable place to start from and come back to after a day of touring. The inn is not new and has probably seen better days but it is a very good value for your money. You have a choice of rooms at the main inn building or a self-catering cottage of which a few...

I have stayed at Edgewater with friends and family for over two decades and I have to say through a few owners. Fritz has been one of the most passionate people about his business, his home.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
On the waterfront of the Eagle River chain of 28 lakes between Watersmeet and Yellow Birch lakes. The Inn has 14 cozy knotty pine paneled rooms. The 6 waterfront cottages have kitchens with enclosed porches. Enjoy the private grounds sunbathing, volleyball, a few shots at hoops, fishing off the dock, wading in the water and finish the day by roasting marshmallows on the fire pits. We are encompassed by Chequamegon - Nicolet National Forest, Northern Highland American Legion Sate Forest and Vilas County Forest that have XC ski, bike and hiking trails. Enjoy a day of fishing for Muskies, Walleye, Bass or pan fish in one of the over 1300 lakes or Trout in one of the many clear streams. Look for a Bald Eagle, Ruff Grouse, Deer, Bear or any of the other wildlife. We have access to over 600 miles of groomed Snowmobile Trails just across the street. Being only one mile west of downtown Eagle River, other activities and dining are a quick walk or drive. For those of you that need the outside connections we have cable TV and Wireless Internet Connections or just sit near the water’s edge and relax. ... more   less
