I was pleased with how clean and organized the room was. Also surprised that there was a microwave and mini fridge, and air-conditioning. I was disappointed though that the room smelled kind of musty and like dog (like with the carpet ). Also the water smelled very sulphury and like sewage. If it had not been for the room smell...

I only stayed two nights, but I enjoyed my stay. I had one of the smaller rooms in the main building (I did not see any of the cottages), and was fortunate to have one with a side window with a view out the back toward the river. Not a big room but had plenty of character. The building is... More

We stopped here quite by chance on a driving holiday across the US and it was a real find. Very friendly staff, a fantastic riverside location, lovely clean, cabin-like rooms. It was well maintained, had coffee making facilities and in the evening there was a campfire and you could sit out by the river and watch the sunset. Beautifully tranquil... More

Stayed at the Edgewater for one night and there is no doubt I will stay there again when in Eagle River. The rooms, though older were some of the cleanest rooms I have stayed in. The owner Fritz was the most personable owner one could ask for. I ate dinner on the deck overlooking the water and had a great... More

We spent one night so we could visit our grandson who's working at a nearby camp. Room was adequate for a good night's sleep. Seemed clean. Good location. Decent bed. But wouldn't want to hang out there if I were going to be in the area more than overnight. Didn't make my wife very happy.

Alas, one who ventures into the wonderful natural North Woods of Wisconsin, longs to find awaiting friendly smiles, comfortable lodging and the unique offering of custom made teas upon requests. Fritz has it all as a city dweller enters the local charm of Eagle River and the expansive view of the Milwaukee River. As echoes of the past are "make... More

Stayed for just one night, but owner was most pleasant and helpful. We stayed in a room but were impressed with the surroundings on the lake and the cottages. Lots of room to enjoy the outdoors. Room was clean and had a microwave, refrigerator, and coffee maker, and TV. Would definitely stay here again.

Fritz was so welcoming and had so much good iformation for us! Rooms were clean and nice! Right on the water so you could swim fish off the dock. He also had fire pits and everything you need to start fires! We very much enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!

Edgewater Inn and Cottages is an older set of buildings and cottages in a lovely setting in northern Wisconsin. While the cottage we stayed in is older, Fritz, the owner has obviously worked hard to keep up the buildings and grounds. He was very nice, taking time to visit with guests. Cottage 1 that we stayed in is quite small... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
On the waterfront of the Eagle River chain of 28 lakes between Watersmeet and Yellow Birch lakes. The Inn has 14 cozy knotty pine paneled rooms. The 6 waterfront cottages have kitchens with enclosed porches. Enjoy the private grounds sunbathing, volleyball, a few shots at hoops, fishing off the dock, wading in the water and finish the day by roasting marshmallows on the fire pits. We are encompassed by Chequamegon - Nicolet National Forest, Northern Highland American Legion Sate Forest and Vilas County Forest that have XC ski, bike and hiking trails. Enjoy a day of fishing for Muskies, Walleye, Bass or pan fish in one of the over 1300 lakes or Trout in one of the many clear streams. Look for a Bald Eagle, Ruff Grouse, Deer, Bear or any of the other wildlife. We have access to over 600 miles of groomed Snowmobile Trails just across the street. Being only one mile west of downtown Eagle River, other activities and dining are a quick walk or drive. For those of you that need the outside connections we have cable TV and Wireless Internet Connections or just sit near the water’s edge and relax. ... more   less
