We had a wonderful stay in cabin #9. Fritz was a pleasure and an excellent host. The cabin was equipped with all of the necessary kitchen items one may need. We really enjoyed fishing from the dock and warming up by the gas stove.

In our unprepared road trip to the U.P. with our dog, we knew there were chain hotels that were dog friendly, but we prefer local places. The Edgewater is the perfect example of why we stay locally owned. The owner, Fritz, really puts his heart and soul into providing all you count on when traveling, a clean, comfortable, and friendly... More

Economical, clean, and dock right on the river connecting to the lakes. had a great time traveling the lakes with our waverunner! Fritz is a very good host. He knows the best restaurants and the sites to see from the water.

Making a trip on holiday weekend can be stressful and not having reservations for lodging can be a nightmare. We stopped at the Edgewater around 8pm on Saturday night and got the last room available. The owner checked us in and that was just the start of one of the best weekends of kayaking I have had all summer. Fritz... More

This resort is just like what you see in the movies about up north Wisconsin. (Think "The Great Outdoors" and "Cheaper by the Dozen 2.") Traveler tip - bring your own pillow unless you like very firm pillows. The view of the river is beautiful! We enjoyed our stay!

Fritz is a super friendly and accommodating host so I'm a bit reluctant to write a negative review. He also reads and responds to all reviews so don't take this review personally! We stayed in one of the rooms in the main lodge and were reminded of motels from our childhoods (in the 70's). Rooms are small, dark and musty.... More

My wife and I stayed in one of the rooms for a night on our way to Ontonagon Michigan. We had reserved the room in advance because we were worried that there wouldn't be any available considering the great reviews this place has gotten. Now were very glad we did. While it wasn't very busy when we arrived, when we... More
