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 Northeast

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.

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!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Kristi was great to work with. Very helpful with answering questions and very timely. The home is beautiful. Very clean and comfortable. Beautiful property and views. The sitting room/porch is a nice touch. Well stocked kitchen and quality cookware, which was very appreciated. Had an issue with the fireplace not working, but Tim came over right away to look at it and eventually fixed it with no issues thereafter. The quality of the firewood for the fire pit was good. Would definitely recommend this home.

What a Great Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My family and I decided to do a guys weekend fishing trip to Eagle River. We decided to stay at the Catfish Lake house and were beyond happy we did. I think everyone made at least one comment about how clean and awesome that cabin was. Everything in the house is brand new, clean, and clearly well maintained. Kristi (owner) is very accommodating and so helpful with anything you need. She really made the rental an easy process. This was actually my first rental through VRBO and Kristi set the bar VERY high for future rentals. I honestly can't say a bad thing about our time there. I'm already looking forward to heading back next year and staying here again.

Best Place I Have Ever Rented!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow- I don't even know where to begin to review this property. Working with Kristi has been great, she is very friendly and great with communication. The moment we walked into the house, we felt right at home. The house was stocked perfectly- the only thing they didnt have that I wanted, was a pasta spoon! That is unheard of when renting a home (I have rented a lot). In addition, the home was so clean. CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN. I felt comfortable sitting on the furniture and floor. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of bathroom towels. It is a bit of a walk up and down stairs to get to the dock, I figured I got my workout in the week I was there :) The dock/ lake area does not have a sandy beach or easy way to walk into the lake, but there is a ladder to get back on the dock. We rented a pontoon from Boat Sport Marina- great boat, friendly service (not so knowledgeable on the phone), and is connected via water to the home. Triggs grocery store really does have everything. All in all, would 100% rent from Kristi again and would highly recommend it (and I am quite picky!).

Thank you, Kristi, for the wonderful family vacation!

At long last - the perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

For a number of years, our family has searched the North Country and beyond for just the right vacation home for us, our children and grandchildren - and now we have found it. There are so many great features about the house on Catfish Lake - including Kristi, its owner - that it is difficult to enumerate them all. The location, the size and accommodations of the house itself, the furnishings, the huge deck with its breathtaking lake view, the lake and dock facility - and on and on - all of it wonderful and making it a great place to stay - and that is the consensus view of our entire family. No more searching for us. We hope to spend all future family vacations at the Catfish Lake House!
