We enjoyed the unique "Here's your key, let us know if you need anything" attitude. The owners of this property are gregarious -- and the family dog Basil, is an affectionate door-keeper. The property is a work in progress. That does not mean distracting construction, but more a compliment to the many improvements the owners have made, in the past... More

Couldn't say enough about the owner and his family opening their hotel and arms to us this past weekend. Rooms were clean, Breakfast had a good spread for being a small family run continental breakfast. Internet was much better than most of the larger hotel chains. All of the little details were thought of and taken care of for their... More

Stayed for 2 nights. The rooms were super clean and comfy, and very warm. Me and 2 friends had plenty of space w/ 2 double beds and a fold out cot. Wireless Internet worked great for streaming. The coffee is always on and fresh in the morning. But most of all, Scott, the owner, and his staff are extremely nice... More

We stayed for two nights. The owner, Scott, was extremely friendly. He fired up his 18 for wide theater screen for us to play xBox. And went out of his way to make sure we had everything we need. Thanks so much, Scott. Easy access to our parked car and/or snowmobile was a nice bonus.

We have spent a couple of weekends in the Eagle River area and have stayed at this popular family run motel at the north end of Eagle River. It seems to be an excellent location for snowmobilers and is conveniently located on Highway 45. The rooms are reasonably well decorated, and spacious, and some have lake views. There are cathedral... More

Thank you Martin for you review. We enjoyed hosting you. We are continually upgrading but currently only 30% of the rooms have 32 inch LED TV's. Hopefully we will be fully upgraded by your next stay. Thanks again for taking the time to write a review. V/R Scott More

I just completed a stay at the motel during the pond hockey event. Our group loved the comfort of the accommodations (especially the hot showers) we experienced during our stay. The motel has the feel of a warm family atmosphere. I've been here before and will without a doubt be back.

Thank you AJ for taking the time to review our resort. Last year we spent $12,000 buying a new commercial hot water heater and we have it set on the hottest temperature allowed. Folks that are recreating in the Northwoods need a long hot shower too thaw out during the cold winter months. Pond Hockey was a crazy week for... More

At first, I was very charmed by the rustic decor of the lodge. The room was heated prior to our arrival and the bedroom was cozy with plenty of outlets and northwoods decor. However, wi-fi was only included in the lobby and at best, the service was spotty. In addition, the water in the shower never heated up past a... More

First of all I will have to say I only stayed at this place because mostly everywhere else was booked for a major hockey tournament. We arrived and thought the rooms were spacious and overall better than we expected for the price. However, the 2nd night we stayed as we were getting ready for bed we got a knock on... More

Stayed here with my family last summer. Rooms were spacious and there was a picnic area on the deck with a grill available for use by guests. We had a good time making our own food and sharing time with family members. There was not much of a beach but the docks worked well for fishing. Rooms were basic, spacious... More
