As you enter the newly updated and refurnished home, you are welcomed by a large, open living space with walls of windows that overlook 572 acre Eagle Lake. Eagle Lake is a full recreation, Class A Musky, lake. Eagle Lake is part of the chain of 28 lakes - the largest in the world. Why be limited to one lake while you vacation? Here you can spend endless hours exploring 28 beautiful lakes! This home is also situated next to Dollar Lake that hosts the annual Pond Hockey Tournament. It's an approximate walk of 5 minutes to Dollar lake.
The property is situated on a level lot that offers plenty of driveway space for the kids where they can play, ride their bikes, skateboards, etc... There is a bay window in the kitchen that over looks this safe area for the children to play. There is a horseshoe pit on the side of the home for extra fun. The back yard is very large, and has an expansive paver-patio for entertaining, and has a paver walkway that leads you down to the sand bottom lake. As you enter the lake, it is only 2-3 feet deep for the first 10-15 yards so it makes a great place for children to hang out in and play. Sunshine pours onto this yard all through the day. Spend your evenings sharing the events of the day around the large fire pit. We offer the following for your outside enjoyment: gas grill, fire pit, patio furniture, hammock for relaxing, 2 paddle boards, 2 kayaks, and a canoe.

At night, family games in the home around the stone fireplace, or songs and laughs around the fire pit. There are two national forests in the area for hiking, exploring, bike riding, etc.... Although secluded, and away from hustle and bustle, a benefit to this property is that it is only 5 minutes from down town Eagle River, that offers plenty of shopping, dining, and entertainment.

Dollar Lake Rd offers a beautiful, safe place to take a long walk or bike ride if you choose. For those that enjoy golf, there are many options in the area! How often can you just throw your clubs in the boat and drive across the lake to golf? Well, here you can as Lake Forest Golf Course is just a quick boat ride away!
