Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: My husband's parents had owned the cottage for 20 years and we had always enjoyed vacationing up there and fell in love with living on the lake. We purchased the cottage in 2011 and made it our own by updating it extensively. An addition put on many years ago makes this place very family-friendly. It is now a year round cottage and available for winter rental also. We have 3 sons who love the northwoods fun of boating, fishing, swimming and campfires. We travel to our cottage whenever we are able within our busy schedules and are ready to share our cottage with your family.
Why the Owner Chose Eagle River: Three bedroom plus a pull out couch invites a large family to enjoy our place. For the basketball player in your family, a 10' basketball hoop is in place at the end of the driveway.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Our cottage is affordable because we do not have the full-frontage like pricier places. Our cottage sits side by side to another cottage and has amazing views. Our pier has room for you to bring your boat if you want to. Easy gentle slope and steps away to our pier for boating, fishing or just watching the lake. Enjoy your dinner in our seasonal screened-in garage or grab a book and recline back in one of the recliners for a bug-free read while you listen to the dusk tranquil sounds of the northwoods while keeping an eye on the day-ending lake action. A budget-friendly vacation opportunity.
