Eagle River Estate Rental Photos and Description

Estate, 6 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, Sleeps 20

Be one of the discerning to discover all that Cranberry Castle and northern Wisconsin has to offer. With 8,500 square feet under air this massive luxurious log and stone cabin is one of the finest in the Northwoods and ready to make memories.

LOCATION:

Located on Cranberry Lake on the famous Eagle River Chain, the largest chain of interconnected lakes in the world. The clean and easily navigable lakes are perfect if you are looking to swim, ski, fish or just take the boat out for dinner. At just under 1,000 acres Cranberry is the second largest and last lake on the Eagle River chain. There are no restaurants on Cranberry Lake so boat traffic on the lake is minimal. Cranberry Castle sits on a level lot with pristine sand frontage on quiet “Musky Bay”. On top of this the house is on a dead end and a ten minute drive from the quaint shops of downtown.

HOUSE FEATURES:

The “Castle” is truly high end with no expense spared. Some features include a whole home ipod ready stereo system, full British Columbian cedar (not pine) log interior, hardwood floors, imported tile, Brazilian rosewood cabinets, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. The vaulted ceilings and towering lakeside windows provide beautiful views.

KITCHEN FEATURES:

The main chef's kitchen is fully furnished should you choose not to take your boat out to dinner. It features a 48' Viking Professional natural gas stove complete with a grill and griddle, Wolf stainless steel double oven, Wolf warming tray, a large Sub-Zero side by side fridge/freezer, Wolf microwave and Kitchen Aid Superba stainless steel dishwasher. There is also a guest kitchen upstairs complete with a stove/oven and full fridge/freezer should you need more space.

GREAT ROOM FEATURES:

Sitting at the pub table enjoying a glass of wine is a great place to take in the lake views. Other features include a carved pool table with ample seating, Yamaha grand piano, beautiful stone fireplace, big screen HDTV and a full size pull out sleeper sofa.

MASTER BEDROOM & BATHROOM HIGHLIGHTS:

The master bedroom sits in the upper south tower with vaulted ceilings and gorgeous lake views. It features a rustic log bed, memory foam queen mattress with high thread count cotton sheets and a wall mounted 32” HDTV. There is a glass enclosed double shower and vanity along with an walk-in closet and jetted tub.

PATIO AND YARD HIGHLIGHTS:

The grand patio offers two full deep seating sets with room for ten, a full stone outdoor fireplace, built in commercial natural gas grill, charcoal Weber and speakers running off the house stereo. Just off the patio on the side of house sits the outdoor spa (operational May-October) with seating for six including a recliner. The large level yard has space to set up a volleyball net and throw the football around. The lakeside hammock warrants a competition for who can get there first. The children can build sandcastles on the beach and wade in the water. The lakeside fire pit seats 14 and is great for making s'mores and telling stories. There are six additional recliners provided that can be placed wherever you feel necessary.

UPPER NORTH TOWER BEDROOM & BATH HIGHLIGHTS:

The upper north tower sits opposite the master and is sometimes referred to as the “other master”. Beautiful views, vaulted ceilings, a California king bed and a 32” wall mounted HDTV complete this room. The bathroom features a granite counter top, complete wrap of tile and cedar along with a glass enclosed shower.

THEATER ROOM:

Comfortable seating for ten, an Infinity surround sound system with 300 watt sub woofer, popcorn machine (pre-measured packets provided), HD projector with Direct TV and Blu-Ray/DVD make this a perfect place to watch the game or have family movie night.

SUNROOM:

Lake views, rustic décor (including trophy muskie mount), a heated travertine floor and over sized wicker chairs make this an ideal place to enjoy morning coffee. This is the best place to watch the deer run through the yard.

LIVING ROOM & DINING TABLES

The living room features a cozy sitting area around the warm stone fireplace. The main solid oak dining table has seating for ten with two beautiful chandeliers overhanging. There is also a smaller table for the children with seating for ten.

LOWER LEVEL BEDROOMS:

The two lower level bedrooms sit beneath the master and share a bathroom. Each features a memory foam queen, high thread count cotton sheets, wall mounted HDTVs and rustic décor.

OTHER FEATURES:

Commercial grade game tables including air hockey, foosball, ping pong and boccerball round out the list of things to do on a rainy day. A hotel grade water system allows all showers to run together without pressure loss. A water treatment system provides bottled water quality right from the tap.

INTANGIBLE FEATURES:

Owners who take pride in the property and strive to provide a great experience for our guests. We are happy to help with everything from boat rentals to restaurant recommendations. There are also two kayaks provided which are not pictured. Please visit our Facebook page for additional photos. Thank you for considering Cranberry Castle!

About Brandon

We purchased a smaller home on the lot in 2000 for the beautiful frontage and quiet bay. We then built Cranberry Castle as our dream retirement home with plenty of space for visits from our children's families. Cranberry Castle was completed in 2006 and we had some great times up there with family and friends. We do not get to use the cabin as we had hoped and have decided to let others enjoy our family home.

Northern Wisconsin dream home!

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic property and land, walking right out to the beach and the boat (BYOB). Tremendous space, nicely decorated, lots to do inside as well. Perfect for large gatherings. Owner was awesome - very attentive and responsive. If you are looking for a great north woods getaway with lots of room, this is a great spot.

All under one wonderful roof!

  • 5 of 5
The Cranberry Castle is a wonderful home and leaves no detail left out! Our family, my parents, my husband and our 3 children (ages 10 to 5 years), my sister and her boyfriend, and my brother, his wife and their 4 children (ages 13 to 5 years) all stayed comfortably for the week. We thoroughly enjoyed water sports, fires on the patio and the theater room. The kitchen was wonderful to cook in and the bbq outside was an added bonus. There was plenty of fridge space including a wine fridge and full sized ice maker. The large dining table fit all 15 of us for every dinner. The house was clean and comfortable with plenty to do in any weather. The beach was sandy including a gradual slope into the lake. The floating raft and private dock was perfect for even our smallest family members. Anyone who needs a large and roomy place would love the Cranberry Castle!

Great for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I brought our families (18 people, ages 9 to 64) to this large, beautiful, and well-maintained home on Cranberry Lake for a week-long reunion, and it was perfect for us. The home has a spacious kitchen and living area on the first floor with dramatic windows overlooking the lake. We spent a lot of time in the hot tub and even more time playing pool, ping pong, and air hockey. At night we watched movies in the theater room, equipped with comfortable chairs and an enormous screen. We had two refrigerators (and made good use of both of them), an ice machine, and a wine frig (which came in very handy for the adults). Amazingly, even with 18 people, it was possible to find some quiet space down at the beach, in the comfortable hammock near the water, or in a small room off the living room where my youngest daughter and her cousins put together a large jigsaw puzzle. We had a great time and will recommend the property to our friends.

Family Time

  • 5 of 5
My parents wanted to do something special and get all the grandchildren together. We rented the castle for a week and had a great time. We had a pontoon delivered to the dock and spent days on the water. The house and yard were very clean and comfortable. It is hard to get a feel for the true size and scale of the home from the pictures. This was our first experience staying at a vacation rental and we could not have been happier!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5
I have been to a lot of places and can be picky from time to time, however this is a very special home. Everything was perfect!! I Love the log cabin/castle feel, awesome bedrooms with plenty of space, and an unreal gaming set up. From A-Z the house is top notch with everything you could want and more. I went with 15 guys who are in their upper 20s - lower 30s, and nobody was bored for even a second. Not one person in our whole group had anything negative to say about that house, only how awesome it is.

Great Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had 16 stay at the Cranberry Castle for Christmas and also to celebrate my Mother's 80th birthday. The house was perfect. The kids loved all the games and theater room. The theater room is also a great spot to watch the Packers! We loved all the different tables which we used for wrapping presents, decorating Christmas cookies, making handmade ornaments, playing games, and enjoying wonderful dinners. The hot tub was enjoyed many times. We went out of the lake for some snowshoeing. Brandon was great to work with. We hope to return for another Christmas or maybe enjoy Cranberry Castle in the summer. Beautiful house and area!

Eagle River is a top vacation destination because there is so much to do! Our favorite thing and what drew us to the area was the 28 interconnected lakes forming the largest chain of lakes in the world. Imagine a full day of cruising the lakes on a pontoon, laughing with family and friends, a well-stocked cooler, listening to oldies, pulling tubes behind for the children, jumping in the water to cool off and stopping at various restaurants along the way. This is truly an up north paradise. Please contact us to have a luxury pontoon delivered to the dock. With class A rated musky lakes, Eagle River is great for fishing too! My wife loved the quaint shops of downtown. Fall brings crisp air, beautiful colors, and art festivals. This is a great time to hike in the nearby Nicolet National Forest. Winter is absolutely beautiful and Eagle River is the snowmobile capital of the world. With well-groomed and marked trails this is a fitting place for the championship snowmobile derby. Other activities include a half hour drive to the nearest ski hill and casino. For seasonal events please visit: http://www.eagleriver.org/
