Welcome to our vacation rental property! My name is Joshua Conger and I have been representing our family's vacation rental properties for over a decade. I grew up in a small town outside of Madison, Wisconsin, but spent most vacations growing up on the chain of lakes in Eagle River, Wisconsin. I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Elementary Education and now reside with my family in Waunakee, Wisconsin. I love the vacation rental industry! It is truly a passion of mine and my family's to create the best vacations possible for our guests.

Joshua Conger purchased this house in 2000

The Island View Lodge private residence is truly the perfect Northwoods get-a-way! It sits on a large parcel of property directly on the largest inland chain of lakes in the world. Since this is a peninsula property, the Island View Lodge offers over 650 feet of beautiful sand frontage and offers both sunrise and sunset views. The Island View Lodge is a true log home made out of huge logs, large stone fireplaces, completely done in a Northwood's decor and offers all the modern amenities of home.

Our family loves this property not only because of the uniqueness of a log home, but also because of the view, shoreline and access to all the amenities of Eagle River, Wisconsin has to offer. The views from the covered porch are fantastic! You will enjoy the large lake view as well as views of the three tranquil islands on Catfish Lake. The grounds are great for playing on, with a large sandy beach, sandy shoreline and fire pit area that is surrounded by water. Sunsets are always gorgeous, but a cup of coffee while you watch the sun rise isn't too bad either. :) There is lots of wildlife and my Mom's favorite part is to fall asleep listening to the loons sing in the moonlight. We also love that you can do almost everything by boat right from the property through the chain of lakes. Taking a quick car ride of less than 5 minutes you will find yourself in downtown Eagle River, Wisconsin that offers all the modern amenities of your hometown, as well as lots of fun shopping and tourism activities.

It was amazing location. Amazing property I just wish management would of warned us there was no soup anywhere in the entire house to wash our hands. I did call the concierge on a Sunday and unfortunately I kept receiving the voicemail.

Best location on the chain. The house belongs in architectural digest or dwell. You're on your own island! Western views of great sunsets. Connected to the chain but on a quiet corner. I love the details. Great fixtures and finishes. There are a few sleeping areas that would qualify as master suites in other rentals. This is real luxury. Dollar for dollar this is the best value 'up north' Rent it. You will love it. My friends and I sure did.

We spent a week here with family and friends and our experience was absolutely amazing. When we first arrived, I was amazed at how clean everything was. A few friends commented that it was so clean that it seemed like we were the first guests to ever stay here. The location of the property is perfect---near the water with so many things to do. We spent countless hours outside-skiing, fishing, hanging by the fire pit, kayaking, and grilling...And when it was raining outside, nobody was disappointed as we were able to spend time inside enjoying the spacious and beautiful property playing foosball and pool. I have recommended properties from the Conger Collection to countless friends since staying here and will continue to do so! Oh, and a side note, if you happen to be a fan of the Packers or Brewers, I would recommend visiting nearby Lumpy's Bar & Grill if you find time-they have some great memorabilia worth checking out.

Owner's Response: We couldn't agree more - Lumpy's is a great spot in the Northwoods to enjoy catching a game with friends and family. So glad you had a great vacation, Mike!

There is so much to do on the chain of lakes and around Eagle River, Wisconsin! Nearly anything you want to do on vacation we can arrange for you. The following will give you a brief idea of all the activities the area has to offer.

The famous 28-lake Eagle River Chain is the largest inland interconnected freshwater chain of lakes anywhere in the world. Whether you feel like trying your luck on snow skis, fishing a secluded bay, or simply relaxing on your deck, the Island View Lodge is for you. Here you can enjoy all types of boating and water sports, such as tubing, kayaking, and water skiing. Historic Eagle River also offers numerous opportunities for boat or jet ski rentals, and most of the lakes have public boat launches for your convenience.

Vacationing on the world’s largest inland chain of lakes means you can do everything by boat! Shopping, fine dining and casual lunching, listening to live music, golfing, hiking, and picnicking (the list goes on and on), can all be done directly from your rental home by traveling through our waterways.

If you are not looking to be active on the water by sailing or taking a pontoon boat ride, you can relax with a rod and reel. Catfish Lake and connecting lakes, being Class A Musky rated, are ideal for fishing. Quiet bays, fallen trees, and sunken islands are home to a variety of fish including walleye, northern pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass, musky, perch, crappie, bluegill, and sunfish. Feeling lucky? Eagle River is home to some of the richest and most coveted fishing tournaments in the Midwest.

Don't feel like being on the water? The Island View Lodge is located only a few miles from town, ideal for catching a late movie, doing some rainy day shopping, or golfing. If you like to golf try the dozens of courses around your vacation home. Some are even accessible by boat from the Island View Lodge.

The Island View Lodge is located a few miles from the Nicolet National Forest. This preserved forest offers over 657,000 acres of virtually untouched wilderness. Boasting crystal clear lakes, 1,100 miles of trout streams, and miles of hiking trails, the Nicolet makes your choices of activities as vast as the land itself. You are also about forty minutes from Upper Michigan's appropriately named 'Big Snow Country.' With lake-effect snow dumping on four ski resorts, a short drive can fulfill all your downhill skiing and snowboarding needs. Does a drive through the mature northern Wisconsin forests sound like fun? Then why not head just 30 minutes north to the border of Upper Michigan and Wisconsin. There you will find the international phenomenon know as “The Paulding Mystery Light”, as well as a casino in Watersmeet, Michigan, where you can try your luck at the tables, slots or bingo.

Eagle River is known as the Snowmobile Capital of the World, hosting the annual World Championship Snowmobile Derby and Ice Castle sculpting event. Each year, snow enthusiasts meet here to enjoy the hundreds of miles of groomed snowmobile and cross-country ski trails as well as the excellent ice fishing. The winter season brings world class trail riding directly to your front door, proving that in every season there is always a reason to visit the Island View Lodge vacation home.

Notes:
We are now offering pontoon boat rentals to the guests at all of our vacation properties. The boat is dropped off and picked up from your property, so you don’t have to begin and end your vacation with the stress that can accompany the rental of a boat. And don’t worry about having to return it with a full tank of gas like most rentals. We’ll take care of that for you too!
