My husband and I stayed at the Eagle River Inn last weekend. We paid for a lake view room and I would highly recommend it. The room had a walk out patio that overlooked a beautiful peaceful lake. There are comfortable chairs and tables to put your drinks so its nice read and relax. There is a indoor pool too.... More

Two friends and I stayed for several days in July to kayak and enjoy the North Woods. We got a riverside unit with great patio, and the view of the water and well-kept grounds was relaxing. We had a unit with one bedroom (queen), a queen in an alcove off the kitchen and living rm (worked for us). We also... More

Enjoyed an excellent fish fry tonight - hadn't been here in years following a bad experience but decided to check out the new chef and remodel - the place was packed and short staffed but it was worth the wait and everyone did their best to accommodate. Soup and salad bar are included with the fish fry - clam chowder... More

To be fair, the hotel is located in a great spot and could be gorgeous if updated to this century. After reading other reviews, maybe I stayed at an entirely different hotel. Some of the hotel is in the process of an "update," but the room I was provided was squalid. There was nothing rustic about the neglected and dirty... More

Dear scmeier, Thank you for your insight on your stay at the Eagle River Inn. We do apologize that you didn't find everything satisfactory. The resort was just purchased in the last year with a full remodel in our plans. We did renovate half of our resort which includes our restaurant and lounge. We are looking to renovate the lodging...

This place is near the confluence of the Eagle River and Wisconsin River(and Mud Creek) We got there at the wrong time, I think...the porch is being renovated for the coming tourist season so we had to eat indoors. The service was slow...only one waitress on duty, but she did as well as she could and the food good and... More

On May 13, 2016 my husband, daughter, son-in-law and 3 grandchildren stayed at Eagle River Inn the night before the Journeys Marathon, which we took part in. The rooms were very nice and looked like some very recent updating had been done. The nicest feature is a sink with a mirror outside of the bathroom. How clever, especially when you... More

This is one of them nicest places I've stayed. Rustic and beautiful. Northern Wisconsin is a beautiful place and this was a wonderful place to stay. I would highly recommend this to my friends and other couples looking to enjoy the beauty of Northern Wisconsin at a decent price.

I have been affiliated with my organization for many years. We have had meetings with meals here in the past with no problems; but it has apparently either changed hands or dramatically changed their policy. We were charged a room rental fee, which is usually waived when we also have a meal. We regularly have a continental type breakfast to... More

Went to the restaurant at the resort for a Friday Fish Fry, they ran out of fish. Went to the bar for a drink after dinner, the tappers didn't work and neither did the coolers.

We stay at the Eagle River Inn & Resort for hockey tournaments. The rooms are spacious and actually open with a key! The people who work there are very nice. It is easy to work with them to set up a block. The restaurant on site has good food.
