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

Fritz, is a GREAT host. He always was there if myself or my friends had a question or needed something. I was there for pond hockey & was grateful to find lodging. Fritz,is nice, easy to deal with & knows cool things to do in the area. He's also a great photographer & master builder. He's a really nice person.... More

My husband and I (and our tiny dog) stayed at the Edgewater Inn for an overnight on our way to backpacking in nearby Nicolet National Forest. Fritz, the owner, is such a genuinely nice guy and goes above and beyond to make sure you will have an enjoyable stay. We stayed in a room in the hotel and found the... 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

My friends and I love staying here every year for the Pond hockey championships. The cottages are cozy, quiet, on the banks of the Eagle river, and just a couple minutes from town. The owner, Fritz is extremely friendly and works very hard to make sure your stay is enjoyable. We're even planning to lace up the skates one more... More

I was pleasantly surprised.... the rooms were comfortable and quiet. I loved the fact we were not in town but a mere 2 min drive. The owner was friendly and very helpful !! I would definitely stay here again.

A friendly welcome out on the drive upon arrival as well as a welcome return upon departure is a part of owner Fritz's friendly way, who is diligently seeing to the comfort of his guests. The Cottage and Inn lodgings are a walk into the Northwoods' quickly disappearing resorts of the Wisconsin summer time stays. If one enjoys a visit... More

We loved our three-day stay at the Edgewater Inn & Cottages. It was reminescent of a bygone era but with a modern feel. We stayed in Cottage 1 right along the shore of the Eagle River. While not the Taj Mahal of cottages, it was clean, comfortable and charming. There were lovely, homey touches throughout: locally-roasted artisan coffee, well-stocked kitchen... More

This was a great place to relax and get away. The accommodations are clean and comfortable and close to the backyard riverfront. Kids can fish off of the river front dock, they are always biting. Kingfishers were diving and deer were walking along the river bank on the other side. We built a fire and stayed up late getting lost... More
