TOP 10 HOMES ON WORLD'S LARGEST CHAIN OF LAKES! FEATURED ON TRAVEL WISCONSIN!

Eagle River Estate Rental Photos and Description

Estate, 6 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, Sleeps 20

FALL SPECIALS FOR SMALL GROUPS! 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 1000 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 cedar (not pine) log interior, hardwood floors, beautiful 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.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS:

Tax rate of 13% includes 3% credit card processing fee, for check payments the tax rate is the standard 10%. 50% down to make reservation with the remaining balance and security deposit due 60 days prior to check in. Summer/holiday/event rates are listed and are a flat rate for up to 20 guests. The standard (off-season) rate of $1,000/night applies to groups of up to eight people with an additional charge of $100/person/night for each additional guest. For example, a family reunion in September with 20 people will be charged at a rate of $2,200/night. There is a $3,000 minimum required for all off-season stays. Thank you for considering Cranberry Castle!

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.

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!

FAMILY CONSENSUS: CRANBERRY CASTLE IS EXTRAORDINARY!!

  • 5 of 5
My family has been coming to the Eagle River/St. Germain area for well over 15 years. Cranberry Castle, by far, has been the best location we have ever experienced. The owner kept us up to date on all parts of the rental process and made solid recommendations for services and events in the area. If you look at the pictures, the home is all that and more. Everything is top shelf with virtually no expense being spared on quality. The kitchen was world class along with the incredible media room. We had 18 people at one point (ranging from 6 to 70 years in age) and everyone had space to do group or individual things. We especially loved sitting at the outside patio, fire burning, watching the beautiful night sky and stars. We will certainly plan our return. If you have a chance to enjoy this unique and exceptional house, I would definitely recommend it!

CRANBERRY CASTLE

  • 5 of 5
We recently returned from our family vacation at Cranberry Castle - 10 adults & 10 grandchildren, ages 4-16. Although the weather was not the best, we had a wonderful time. The games tables, movie theater, hot tub, & piano were Big hits on those rainy days, never did we feel we needed more space. The location, yard, outdoor fireplace & home were exceptional and well suited for a large group. Our family has been fortunate to stay at many rental properties and Cranberry Castle rates at the top and we hope to return. The lake is quiet for water tubing, skiing & fishing. Great time.

LUXURY AT THE LAKE

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from an amazing stay at Cranberry Castle. We had pretty high expectations based on the listing description & photos and we were not disappointed! The extensive common areas, beautiful setting and many amenities provided lots of things to do without even leaving the property. The layout is perfect for a group, couples or families. We especially enjoyed cooking meals in the gourmet kitchen and watching movies in the spectacular home theater.

The property was meticulously maintained and had countless high-end features and finishes, making it feel truly luxurious. Although there are plenty of outdoor activities and other things to do in the area, you could easily entertain yourself for a week without ever leaving the property.

We would highly recommend this property to friends and family and if our travels bring us to Wisconsin again in the future, we would definitely stay at Cranberry Castle again!

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/
