Lots about this resort was great. The river view, the fishing, the owners, the neighbors in their campers, the clean cabins and grounds, the window air conditioner and two restaurants in Stoddard (200 yds). Plus only 25 minutes to La Crosse. Two drawbacks made me rate this as average. You are RIGHT NEXT to a rail line. Most days at... More

We booked the Vacation Home for a family weekend. It is comfortable and well stocked. It is right by the marina & boat docks so easier for quick fishing from the docks. It was very affordable and a great location overall. The only major drawback was that we were not aware that there is a train tracks right across the... More

We found this hotel on a motorcycle ride up the Mississippi River. Very nice, clean, well kept place. Beautiful of the Mississippi River and gorgeous sunsets! Rooms were large and had a little kitchen area along with a separate bedroom. Very nice for the price. I would recommend staying here...the trains did get a little loud at night.

For an extended family vacation, we rented all five cabins. Everyone was very happy with the cabins. First of all, the cabins are blocks from the train tracks; the train noise wasn't an issue. The cabins are clean and well appointed. Nice furniture, very nice beds and the kitchen was well equipped. We took advantage of the pond, the beach... More

We found this hidden gem last May on a ride up the Mississippi River. Stayed here on Jan 31st because we like to ice fish. Rooms are very clean, small kitchenettes with minimal supplies but when you stay here it is for fishing so amenities are not what we were looking for. It is a family run business and the... More

The Water's Edge Motel Marina and Campground was great. We stayed in the log cabin by the marina. Friendly people, clean facilities, owners run the place and it shows. It has boat rentals, bait, it's own boat launch, fish cleaning station, and even fish guide service. Yes, the train runs through the area, if you stay anywhere on the Mississippi... More

We stayed 4th of July weekend at Waters Edge Motel.Super experience... From clean rooms that are well furnished and comfortable, to beautiful sunset views of the shore or balcony. The setting is beautiful and fishing hot-spots can be found in many locations around the river. I've never found a resort as friendly as Waters Edge. The owners go out of... More

The Water's Edge is strictly for hunters and/or fishermen who want a reasonably priced bare-bones place with a marina where they can crash after hunting/fishing all day. My husband stays there himself or with a group of friends frequently for that reason, but once a year he will ask me to accompany him on a fishing trip. There are individual... More

The atmosphere is perfect. Our cabin was beautiful. It was the perfect setting for spending the night out for our anniversary until....the trains started rolling down the tracks just 30 feet away from the cabin...they blew the horn at the intersection EVERY TIME and ran through the night at least hourly. We didn't sleep at all during the night. I... More
