Midwest Living Review
Eagle Waters Resort offers tremendous year-round value for people who love the North Woods. Accommodations encompass 50 lodging units including single rooms, condos, duplexes and cottages. Rates are astonishingly low; a 1,000-square-foot lodge unit with full kitchen, living room, gas fireplace, washer/dryer, satellite TV, king-size bed and walk-in shower goes for as little as $132 a night during the winter, $187 in the summer. Families can spread out in a 2,000-square-foot, three-bedroom corner lodge unit for $307, or a two-floor, 2,051-square-foot duplex for $333.
The Trading Post common area houses the front desk, a sitting room, an ice cream shop, computers (this is the only area with Wi-Fi), a library, a workout facility, a sauna and massage rooms. The on-site Eagle Waters restaurant is a cozy lodge with a roaring fireplace and a separate lounge area. It's only open Thursday through Saturday nights (plus Sunday brunch), but the extensive menu covers appetizers, steak, pork, chicken, pasta, seafood and sandwiches. The restaurant offers a seasonal outdoor dining area and patio bar; in the wintertime, that patio becomes a quaint little ice-skating square. The resort sits on a snowmobile trail, and there are cross-country ski and snowshoe trails nearby. In the summertime, guests enjoy a lakeside beach, dock with boat slips, kayaks, canoes, lakeside pool and whirlpool, bicycles, shuffleboard, horseshoes, a fire pit, tennis, basketball and volleyball.
