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....

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.

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...

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...

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...

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...

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
