Whispering Pines Lodge is an 11-bedroom, seven-bathroom, 9,400-square-foot retreat that combines luxury, privacy, and convenience. Capable of sleeping up to 40 guests, few places are better suited to exhaust a gaggle of kids while entertaining a group of adults than Whispering Pines.
The Lodge, located on the world’s largest chain of lakes in Eagle River, Wisconsin, sits on the last lot of a quiet dead-end road flanked by a forest of birch, spruce, and other species of trees. Upon your arrival, you and your guests will instantly feel a sense of relaxation with the scent of pine in the air through your private entrance with a drive-through portico and additional parking area directly on the property. This scenic arrival gives way to a massive lakefront property perfectly situated for a sunset view of Voyageur Lake, creating a Northwoods experience Aldo Leopold would envy.
Guests will immediately be transported to the up-north state of mind as they walk through the vaulted front entry and are engulfed in the warmth of local wood beams and stone accents. An expansive living room with 30-foot high ceilings, an open kitchen, and a striking fireplace provide the quintessential setting to unwind and watch the sunset. A few glasses of the right vintage might even coax guests into the Lodge’s lakeside hot tub.
Privacy is a focus at the Whispering Pines Lodge. Bedrooms offer a reading area or window seat to enjoy the forested views and every bedroom on the property offers an attached bath inspired by a Northwoods spa. A loft and additional common areas also offer the perfect spot to curl up with that book you keep meaning to finish.
Whispering Pines helps parents savor their serene surrounding by providing kids with ample opportunity for activities that will tempt even the most ardent video game addict into the outdoors. The Lodge opens up to a large, flat lawn ideal for volleyball, kickball, and possibly finding a Pokémon or two. Additionally, this private residence is situated perfectly for quick access to the ATV and snowmobile trail system, a quiet stroll and good conversation with a cup of coffee along a sleepy Northwoods road and just minutes from the National Forest and downtown Eagle River.
A large playground, a circular driveway, multiple pier areas, a covered boat slip, and a sandy beach give kids even more real estate to explore while still being within the sightline and earshot of their parents. When the moment calls, groups can congregate in the sports bar (complete with shuffleboard, a fireplace, electronic darts, and foosball), watch a movie in the theater room, or enjoy a quiet gathering around the stunning lakefront firepit.
Whether coordinating a family reunion, a corporate retreat, or collaborating with friends for a Northwoods vacation, Whispering Pines Lodge has the capacity, amenities, and activities to meet your needs.
