My wife and I were discussing the "Year in Review" and one of the wonderful highlights was our trip to the Eagle River area. That's when I realized that I meant to write this review 4 months ago. It's just simply, even "better that you expect". We stayed in the Lake House, the views from the main level deck are perfect. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner on the deck. The pine trees branches are cut high to give you a unrestricted view of the lake but provide shade throughout the day. The lower level patio was great for me to keep and set up my fishing gear. It also affords easy access to the path to the lake and the awesome fire pit. The pit is located just up from the dock, very nicely set up and offers a great view of the lake. We used the fire pit frequently in the evening. If you have a large group, renting both homes would be ideal. The way the property is set up, these two homes are nicely separated from the adjacent homes, so you feel nicely "isolated". Being on Duck Lake, the property is far enough away to give you the North Woods feeling but you can actually get into Eagle River quickly for the grocery runs or shops. There is a Gas Station and General store within easy walking distance for those quick needs. The owners are great people. They were very quick to get us information on renting a boat or dinning. They were staying in the Log House during our stay, but you never would have known they were there (except when I had questions about the area or lakes). We also brought our bikes and did the new 12 mile trail from Eagle River (Dairy Queen) down to 3 Lakes and back (total 24 miles). It was a very nice ride. We rented a Pontoon Boat for the week enjoyed exploring the "Chain of Lakes", fishing and evening cruises. On our first evening, we walked down to the dock and were sitting on the bench at the end of the dock. The two men fishing right in front of us caught a 42" Musky just off of our dock. They even pulled up and showed us the picture they took before they released him back into the lake. Not to mention, the eagles, there were lots of them!!!!! The Lake Home is very clean, nicely appointed and had everything we needed. The bottom line is we have every intention of making this home our first choice when we head up north. Which we hope to be frequently.
