Eagle River Estate Rental Photos and Description
Estate, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 13-20)
Just 30 minutes North of Eagle River but miles away from that type of vacation experience. This is a 280 acre estate that contains a 60 acre private lake that is stocked with bass, rainbow trout and other gamefish. The 280 acres are completly surronded by National Forest and one corner touches a small piece of paper company land. You will not see another person on this lake. When most advertise a private lake they mean it doesn't have a public boat ramp but many other cottages. This is a private lake where the estate owns the entire lake (about 2 miles of shoreline). There are three homes on the lake all of which we own. The first (being listed here) is a custom Frank Llloyd Wright inspired main lodge which is 5,500 sq ft. Post and Beam construction with generous use of cedar, slate, marble,stained glass, and glass block. It has a 1,500 sq ft mezzanine master suite that leaves nothing to be desired. The master bath is complete with a walk-in 6 head steam shower, huge jetted tub, dual hand painted vessel sinks, heated towel bars. All of it over looking the lake. Chefs kichen with a Viking double oven, Jenn air gas and electric cooktop, dishwasher, two sinks, wine refrigerator, and 48' refrigerator. All stainless steel. Gas fire places in the living room and downstairs master bedroom. A wood burning (gas starter) fireplace in the lakeside gathering room. Four bedrooms. Mezzanine master has a king and full futon, downstairs master has a queen, one bedroom with two sets of bunk beds and another with a double and single bed, a loft with a double bed. Four bathrooms. The downstairs master bath has double sinks, walk-in shower, jetted tub, and a sauna. When you open the windows of both masters you hear the soothing sounds of the waterfalls. Beautiful dining room with a beverage refrigerator. Living room looks thru the trees onto the stream below that runs thru the front of the property.The second home on the property is the caretakers residence (vacant) and the third (not visible from the main lodge and on the other side of the lake) is the guesthouse that is also available to rent but only to the same group that rents the main lodge. That keeps it a private lake experience. This will be a very private lake experience for you and your family. The 220 acres of woods have a trail system thru it and is great for exploring and seeing wildlife. The house has ample deck space and a screen porch off of the kitchen for morning coffee or evening meals. Beautiful sand beach where the kids will play and swim for hours. There is a large firepit at the lakefront and another at the top of the largest waterfall also lakefront. Children love to explore the stream running from the waterfalls in front of the home thru the property. You will love relaxing at the 'happy hour' house that is perched over the water at the base of the the largest waterfall. If you want the Northwoods experience from 100 years ago (with a 5,500 sq ft estate home) then this is the spot. If you are looking for neighbors or a waterski and jetski lake then you would be disapointed here.We just purchased this property in the winter of 2012 so virtually everything is brand new. The property has a helipad so if you happen to need it let me know and I will give you the coordinates and have the wind sock put up.

We have vacationed in the Northwoods my entire life and currently spend the summers in Sugar Camp. We love everything about the Northwoods and would love to be up there full time except for the long winters and I still have a full time job.

Why Tom chose Eagle River
We bought this as you never see private lakes come up for sale.Then you add 280 acres that are surronded by National Forest and three beautiful homes and we decided we couldn't pass it up.We are renting it as it is too special of a place not to be viewed by human eyes most of the year. We are sure that we will eventually retire here.
What makes this estate unique
The absolute natural beauty that you can't find anywhere. Having a lake all to yourself is a special feeling. Relaxing by the two waterfalls is something you will never forget. It is unbelievably quiet and the stars and northern lights are something to behold. Property is surronded by the Ottawa National Forest. People that have rented Falling Waters have said an unexpected benefit is that they can let their kids be kids here and never ask them to quiet down as there is no one for miles to hear them. You will wonder how this property ever remained private in the middle of the National Forest. The trails thru the woods are spectacular and wildlife abounds. There is even a 1880's trappers cabin on the lakeshore for a unique photo oppurtunity. If you can't relax at Falling Waters at Red Pine Lake then you just can't relax. You will create memories that your family will talk about for years. Great retreat for family bonding as you never have to worry about jet ski's or motor boats going by when you are trying to enjoy the tranquility of the Northwoods. The trumpeter swans that have lived on the lake for years put on a show almost every morning and night as they try to clear the lake of any other waterfowl to show their dominance. Lots of deer. Have seen bear, wolves, otters, beavers, badgers and there is a bald eagle that lives on the lake as well. The DNR have told me that they have seen moose prints on the property but we have yet to see a moose. A place that your family will talk about for years. The property is gated.
