About Joshua Conger

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.

Why Joshua Conger chose Eagle River

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

The Island View Lodge was the perfect winter get-a-way for our family! The home gorgeous, very clean and offers every thing you could ask for in a vacation rental. We have rented lots of homes and you just never know what to expect. This place was exactly as advertised which we SO appreciated. We loved all the wood floors, northwoods furniture and giant logs in the home. The kids really enjoyed playing foosball and the adults used the pool table every night. Super easy access to the snowmobile trail system and plenty of parking. The place was great, but what made it perfect was the service. Josh from Conger Collection was very responsive and provided excellent communication. We called a few times with questions and he took care of everything very quickly. We even had an app to use that had house and town info - that was a first and pretty cool! Highly recommend this rental home - worth every penny. We'll definitely be back!

This property and location was incredible. We stayed there on our recent snowmobile trip to Eagle River. Beautiful home with all the amenities you could possibly need. I downloaded the app they sent to me and it had everything I needed to know on it and sent me informative reminders. Emailed with the owner directly regarding a question I had and received immediate response. I highly recommend the Conger Group.

We loved our stay in this beautiful lodge. The property exceeded our expectations--every detail is exquisite! A heads-up that the Internet connection didn't work for our laptops (not a big problem, considering the nature of a retreat). The only unpleasant thing was the housekeepers arriving one hour before check-out and waiting in the driveway while we packed the car. An ungracious end to a lovely family retreat.

Manager responded on 12/25/2014:

We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at the Island View Lodge! If you ever stay with us again, please let us know if you are having trouble with your Internet connection. We would be happy to help you reset the router, (it only takes a few minutes), and get your devices connected to the Internet right away. We are so sorry to hear the ending to your vacation did not meet your expectations like the rest of your stay. We will continue to work with our staff to ensure our housekeepers are not waiting for future guests to depart at their scheduled time. Thank you for this constructive feedback!

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!
