My husband and I and our one-year old had planned a nice fall week in Eagle River (our first family vacation with our son). We arrived to a beautiful hotel and great weather. We stayed in a two bedroom cottage with a nice deck overlooking a waterway linking two of the chain of lakes. The restaurant had great food for dinner and let us take it back to our cottage when our one year old got a little fiesty. There is a serene lake and beach just a block or two walk through a scenic path from the main hotel. We know we would have loved our entire week there. Unfortunately, on the second morning after our arrival, we learned that my husband's mother in Nebraska (who had been battling cancer) had taken a turn for the worse and was not expected to make it through the day. (She in fact died that evening.) We immediately packed up and informed the front desk we had to break our reservation. The staff was very understanding and only charged us for the night(s) we were there. We have not been able to get back there yet (now we have 2 little ones) but we hope to soon, especially after how wonderfully we were treated in such an emergency situation.
