About Edgewater Inn

Take time to relax waterfront with family, friends, or after a business day. Enjoy the private grounds, fishing off the dock, toasting marshmallows on the fire pits, watching the wildlife wading along the waterfront.

We are on the Eagle River Chain of Lakes between Watersmeet and Yellow Birch Lakes. We are encompassed by Chequamegon- Nicolet National Forest, Northern Highland American Legion Sate Forest and Vilas County Forest that have bike, hiking, cross county and snowshoe trails. Snowmobile trail is across the street.

The Inn has cozy knotty pine paneled rooms and 6 waterfront cottages. 

Pets are welcome for a fee.


My Husband and I had a mini honeymoon at one of the cottages at Edgewater Inn and we couldn't recommend it more. Our cottage had it's own kitchen, Living area, and bathroom. Fritz, the owner, was also more than helpful with recommendations on where to go and what to eat. It was so nice to go fishing (catching a 42" Musky) and then have dinner and play cards river side.

LOVE THIS PLACE! Stayed here this past March for a couple days of snowmobiling and I couldn't have been more satisfied. Fritz, the proprietor, is incredibly friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. I arrived later than anticipated on a frozen Sun. night, but he stayed in contact with me via phone to make sure I wasn't lost and kept the light on for me. Toy Shop rentals is just across the street. Best place for sled-heads to stay as there is ample parking for the sleds and trail access straight from the motel! Let's be clear, this is a motel in the Northwoods of WI. Throw your regular hotel conventions to the side and take these lodgings for what they are: cozy, rustic, and relatively inexpensive.
