Fritz was so welcoming and had so much good iformation for us! Rooms were clean and nice! Right on the water so you could swim fish off the dock. He also had fire pits and everything you need to start fires! We very much enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!

Edgewater Inn and Cottages is an older set of buildings and cottages in a lovely setting in northern Wisconsin. While the cottage we stayed in is older, Fritz, the owner has obviously worked hard to keep up the buildings and grounds. He was very nice, taking time to visit with guests. Cottage 1 that we stayed in is quite small...

Edgewater Inn and Cottages is a no frills place to stay but the beauty of that is economical prices, a great river view, close to town and there amenities and you won't find a better owner/host then Fritz. I highly recommend the Edgewater Inn.

We stopped in Eagle River while on a road trip. We enjoyed our stay at the Edgewater. It was clean and comfortable. Good bed, really thick towels for an inexpensive motel! The host was friendly and provided recommendations for restaurants and cross country ski trails. Nice in-room coffee.

We had a wonderful stay in cabin #9. Fritz was a pleasure and an excellent host. The cabin was equipped with all of the necessary kitchen items one may need. We really enjoyed fishing from the dock and warming up by the gas stove.

In our unprepared road trip to the U.P. with our dog, we knew there were chain hotels that were dog friendly, but we prefer local places. The Edgewater is the perfect example of why we stay locally owned. The owner, Fritz, really puts his heart and soul into providing all you count on when traveling, a clean, comfortable, and friendly...

Making a trip on holiday weekend can be stressful and not having reservations for lodging can be a nightmare. We stopped at the Edgewater around 8pm on Saturday night and got the last room available. The owner checked us in and that was just the start of one of the best weekends of kayaking I have had all summer. Fritz...

This resort is just like what you see in the movies about up north Wisconsin. (Think "The Great Outdoors" and "Cheaper by the Dozen 2.") Traveler tip - bring your own pillow unless you like very firm pillows. The view of the river is beautiful! We enjoyed our stay!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
On the waterfront of the Eagle River chain of 28 lakes between Watersmeet and Yellow Birch lakes. The Inn has 14 cozy knotty pine paneled rooms. The 6 waterfront cottages have kitchens with enclosed porches. Enjoy the private grounds sunbathing, volleyball, a few shots at hoops, fishing off the dock, wading in the water and finish the day by roasting marshmallows on the fire pits. We are encompassed by Chequamegon - Nicolet National Forest, Northern Highland American Legion Sate Forest and Vilas County Forest that have XC ski, bike and hiking trails. Enjoy a day of fishing for Muskies, Walleye, Bass or pan fish in one of the over 1300 lakes or Trout in one of the many clear streams. Look for a Bald Eagle, Ruff Grouse, Deer, Bear or any of the other wildlife. We have access to over 600 miles of groomed Snowmobile Trails just across the street. Being only one mile west of downtown Eagle River, other activities and dining are a quick walk or drive. For those of you that need the outside connections we have cable TV and Wireless Internet Connections or just sit near the water’s edge and relax. ... more   less
