Very secluded property, but home is dated and dusty. There were cigarette butts in ashtrays and on the pontoon. We appreciated nIce hot showers. If you like to cook, you may want to bring a couple pans and sharp knives. All in all our family had a wonderful vacation.
Fishing with the guys
Five of us came up for a week of fishing and had a great time. Plenty of fish. Great house with a bedroom for each. House had all the necessities and the body of water reminded me of Canada. Very few homes on the water. We didn't get in the car once so I can't say much about the amenities off the lake pr in town but mercer is 30 minutes away and when we drove through there is plenty there.
Someone else mentioned the stumps. Highly recommend gps or a good lake map as they are in abundance.
Great time. Great location. Bring your bug spray :)
The reality, the guys never left the lodge all week. Fantastic! Thank you for the review
AERIE Eagles Nest Lodge
The cabin was very clean, floor plan was excellent the , basic necessities,papers, dishes, linens, towels, two refrigerators. were all there for use. The layout served well for our group of 14. The decks had great veiws and stair lighting was dead on. We had no problem with the water and didn't even worry about it.
If a 42" Muskie, 4 Northern's between 14 and 27" and enough pan fish and walleye to choke a horse is what you like this is the place. The scenery in the back bays was fantastic. The stump danger in the lake should not be overlooked though. The wildlife we saw , deer by handful, porcupine, fox, all kinds of turkeys and even maybe a bear was enough for us. With a deer between buildings daily. The dock and fire pit were well located, The little sandy beach worked well for our grandkids, however a little more grass land would of been helpful. It was something to listen to the water as we went to sleep at night and wake up rested ready to go. There is a lot of stuff in the area to do that is free and fun. The small communities are with in 15 min of the cabin for supplies. The Holmes family would recommend it!
Its a pleasure to have people enjoy the wonderful serenity and natural beauty of the Flambeau Flowage. We appreciate the review and offer future renters the same peaceful and fun filled opportunities.
Great House, and had a wonderful time. A beautiful home and fully enjoyed the stay.
The layout is great for large group or a couple of families. Everything very neat and clean.
TV remote upstairs not working. Upgraded TV would be nice.
Thank you for the great feedback.
Yes we are having Direct TV move them next to each TV. Upgrade of screens already planned. We welcome your return..
Great family home!
We stayed here with 3 families all together. There was more than enough room and the house was beautiful! Definetly recomend!
Thank you for the review, you will always be welcome.
My husband and I ended up staying here all by ourselves in September 2013 which made this place seem like a mansion! We had the most romantic time cuddled up by the fireplace and enjoyed the majestic beauty of the lakefront and peace it brings. Can't wait to come up again!! Everything was clean and impeccable.
