About the property

5 BR/ 3 Bath, large deck, lake front views on 6 acres

Our lake house sits on a quiet cove on Catfish Lake, on the Eagle River chain,(part of the chain of 28 connected lakes).The Lake House is newly built, with 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, large deck overlooking the lake and another large screened in porch for meals and just sitting. In addition we have an outdoor fire pit in a beautiful wooded setting. In the summer, you can take your boat to a restaurant for dinner, or into town for ice cream. Our property sits on 5 acres of lakefront perfect for a swim with a sandy lake bottom, kayaking in our quiet cove or a stroll along the lake and forrest. We also have a very long dock that can accommodate multiple boats. In the winter, you can ice fish in our cove, as last year, a guest caught one of the cove's muskies on Christmas vacation. In addition we are close to trail heads of major snowmobile routes.

About Kristi Maximoff

The owner family has been coming to this property for 4 generations and welcome visitors to their Lake House.

[The owner also has just completed a new lake home with similar amenities nearby, the Sunset Hill House (VRBO #885424)]

Why Kristi Maximoff chose Eagle River

The property is designed for enjoying all aspects of the north woods: The chain of lakes, the nearby forest, the ducks, fishing, boating, or just sitting in peace. The land has been in the owners family for over 100 years, starting with a small cottage built in 1904. This newly constructed house was the first building added in over 100 years and we welcome you to share in our tradition.

What makes this house unique

This new house sits in a quiet cove. Half the cove is made up of summer cottages and the other half is untouched lakeshore and forest. The lake is a only 75 feet from the house and you can watch the fun from our large deck.

Another great visit to Eagle River at the Catfish Lake House! Kristi's accommodations are unmatched from sending brochures and directions to all the essentials in the home. We plan on making the Catfish Lake House our annual destination!

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

There were 9 of us that stayed for the World Championship Vintage snowmobile races. This property was very comfortable even with the temps at -27 in the morning ~ ugh! Needless to say we had a great time and plan to stay again next January.

Excellent home in the Northwoods

  • 5 of 5

Kristi was accommodating from booking to departure. The home was updated, clean, and spacious. I plan on making this an annual destination as everything was perfect from start to finish. The home has just about everything you need for a great short or extended stay. The location is conveniently located close to everything in town. I highly recommend for a great getaway to the Northwoods!

Perfect honeymoon home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the Catfish House for our honeymoon which immediately followed our wedding and it was the perfect getaway for us. We packed up our pup and all of our winter outdoor fun and off we went. The house feels like a loved home and not a typical rental property. The beds sleep so great! The kitchen was even equipped with a coffee grinder which was appreciated from coffee snobs such as ourselves. We have agreed that we'll be making a tradition of spending our anniversary among the properties offered by the home owner.

Beautiful place to spend Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is absolutely beautiful. The owner Kristi was very accommodating by having a prelit Christmas tree set up. Our family was really impressed and comfortable. The kitchen was really well equipped, even for Christmas dinner. There are also a lot of extra pillows and blankets. The beds are comfortable and the kids really enjoyed the loft. Plenty of room for our family.

We spent 10 days in this beautiful spacious home and can't say enough about it. From the moment we walked in we were totally impressed. Very clean, comfortable, spacious, quiet and relaxing. It is fully supplied with everything anyone would ever need. So quiet and relaxing to sit out on the huge deck and read a book or eat breakfast or lunch. And the view is just beautiful overlooking the pier and lake.

The fishing off the pier was fantastic! Caught a lot of Perch and huge Crappies! We rented a pontoon boat for the first weekend from a rental location on the lake and it was a beautiful pontoon boat and we had a great time.

We often seen deer in the yard and flocks of turkeys by the driveway.

This is one of the most beautiful, clean, amazing homes we have ever stayed in in the Eagle River area. Both of us, and our dog Sophie, can't wait to come back next year to once again enjoy this fantastic home and beautiful lake! Thank you Kristi for being so kind and helpful. We will be back!
