Luxury Lakefront Home with High-Speed WiFi, Dock, Private Beach, & Theater Room

Whispering Pines Lodge is a 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.

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.

The house with all the amenities was beautiful. We had 7 kids and teens and 21 adults who had lots to do. They especially liked swimming at the small beach, riding the swing, fishing, and the game and movie room. We watched old family movies and laughed throughout the CD. The fire pit was a big draw. We loved it.

On our second of five days, there was a major storm that knocked out the power and bathrooms. We had two adults on C-Paks with no electricity and we’re not able to sleep. Due to no power and no bathrooms, we were forced to leave on Tuesday cutting our stay short 2-3 days. Everyone was disappointed.
Manager response:
Hi, Robert! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and do apologize the power outage caused you to cut your trip short. Unfortunately, that was completely out of our control. Hopefully we can host you again during better weather. Thank you!

Everything about whispering pines was awesome. We had a slight problem upon check-in....power in one room off and two bedroom doors locked, but help was out within 15 minutes! Such awesome service! This is a great place...3 generations so enjoyed our stay!! Town of Eagle River a fun place....and the lakes are beautiful!

This home is so beautiful and spacious. We had a small wedding here. All of the guests had their own space and were able to come together in the larger spaces. The game room/bar area and theater rooms were a great bonus for our guests. The fire pit area was fun also.

Our family enjoyed a very beautiful 4 day weekend! We were so happy with the property and would love to stay again in the future!

There were a few issues that we noticed in the beginning but management handled everything in a timely manner and was responsive every time I called which was truly amazing. All in all, the home was beautiful and looks exactly how it appears in the pictures. The kitchen was fully stocked so all we needed to bring was food and some aluminum pans for the food because we used the gas grill. I would suggest bringing paper plates, paper cups and plastic silverware for the kids as we did so that they aren't using the glass dishes. I also brought extra garbage bags just in case because I knew we would be there for a couple of days but I am sure if asked management would provide more of whatever is needed. The kids loved the movie room as did the adults. This will be a reoccurring vacation spot for me and my family for sure!

Great family time. the lodge was perfect!
octavia R. Dec 2020
This house is beautiful and spacious. My family and I encountered an opportunity that prevented me from giving 5 stars. I believe in second chances and I have confidence that the management team will resolve the issue.
CAL K. Jun 2020
Got married here. Perfect for a small wedding. Beautiful and remote but not too remote. Will never forget.
Manager response:
Congratulations!
Kari J. Apr 2020
Enjoyed our trip very much.
Very comfortable and had everything we needed.
Hot tub was out of commission, which was sad - but we managed just fine without it!
We would definitely come back again!
Matthew H. Feb 2020
Great place. Top of the line for large groups.
Ryan M. Oct 2019
Every thing was very clean and well kept. I loved how much fridge space there was. The hot tub was amazing.

Whispering Pines is the most luxurious backdrop to an idealistic serene Northwoods slice of heaven! Reading on the dock until the blue skies were filled with stars and napping by the fire couldn't have been more peaceful. It is so nice to feel the ahhhhhh moments in life and the properties by Conger Collection never fail to deliver on this priceless treasure.

This beautiful property accommodated 21 people in our family with both private & communal spaces.

Whispering Pines Lodge was the perfect setting for our recent family reunion. Our family has vacationed together since my brothers and I were children. We decided after the passing of our parents we would continue this tradition. Late one night I googled large vacation homes to rent in Eagle River area. We chose this area because it was one of our favorite places to camp. Whispering Pine Lodge popped up. It looked to perfect to be true. I had to wait to try and rent it but I was able to complete the reservation and plan our vacation. We had 21 adults and 13 children age 2 months to 9 attend the reunion. Our family members came from Illinois, Iowa, New York, California, Nevada and London. Upon arrival to the lodge our first response was WOW. The internet picture are great but the home is so much more impressive in person. There are so many great attributes to this house. With 3 children under 1 we were concerned about everyone being up in the night with the babies. The bedroom are almost sound proof. The movie room provided quiet time for toddlers and older children. The kitchen and dining area allowed us to easily prepare meals and all eat together. The large dining table and game room were perfect for family games of cards after the kids went to bed. Each family had a bedroom with kids sleeping in the same room as their parents. We had hot dogs and s’mores by the fire. If anyone wanted a place to get away there were several areas to go read or just relax. The weather was wonderful which allowed all kinds of outdoor activity in the large yard. The kids loved the swing set. We rented a pontoon and speed boat which gave us the opportunity to be on the water also. We even had some catching fish off the dock. Our family was blessed to be able to vacation at Whispering Pines Lodge. Thank you for helping us create such wonderful memories for all three generations of our family.

Tina P. Jul 2019
This home was absolutely stunning and so spacious. We had 17 adults and 3 kids and there was more than enough room. It was a great place to spend time with family and relax.
Philip M. Jun 2019
We rented WP for our wedding (22 people) and stayed the whole weekend. It was phenomenal. Beautiful views, great rooms, amazing kitchen. Fireplace, hot tub, row boat for outdoor activities. Great location. Can't say enough, we loved it.
Mindy O. Apr 2019
Home was wonderful for huge gatherings. Had everything we needed. Beautiful area close to town. Rooms where big and well maintained. Would stay again.
Allison A. Feb 2019
What a great floor plan this lodge has! Lots of space, niches, and amenities to share. We had 25 people and it never felt crowded. If the group gets to be too much, you can hide out in the game room or the theatre.
Of course, everyone gravitates to the kitchen, but it was big enough to accommodate multiple cooks making their own thing. There are at least 2 of everything you really need; stove, sink, dishwasher, fridge, crockpot, coffee maker, etc.
We were there in at least a foot of snow, but I'd love to come back in the summer to make use of the lakeside access.
We did have an issue with the hot tub (probably due to the extreme cold weather), but the response from maintanance was quick.
Thank you for being an integral part of our fun weekend!

We stayed at The Whispering Pines Lodge with our immediate family of 19 adults and 10 children (under 16) and held our intimate wedding ceremony in the yard. When we first arrived, there was mood lighting and soft music playing which added a nice welcoming touch. There was ample space for everyone to have their own space and enough room for our group to eat all together. The kitchen was very well equipped with duplicates of almost everything. We made use of the bar area and the games. The movie room was a nice touch and the kids were able to keep themselves busy. It would have been nice if the kitchen had plastic cups/plates for kids to use, but that is really the only thing that would have made our stay more enjoyable.

awesome. can't say enough about how well this experience was. it was our wedding and we had about 20 family members stay in the house and several more stopped by for the wedding. plenty of room, plenty for people to do and stretch out, and the kitchen is so well laid out to serve large group of people. I can't say anything negative about this place.
. May 2018
Overall our experience was exceptional.. The cabin was incredibly clean and perfectly set up for us. Our experience was so good, we drove home and immediately booked a return trip to another of their properties for a week later. We are looking forward to being their guests for many years to come!

We took out entire family to visit Eagle River for our wedding anniversary - there were 20 of us ranging from 66 years old to 2 years old and there was literally something for everyone to do! The teenagers loved the boats, the babies spent hours on the playset ~ the kiddie table was a hit! Between the theater room, bar area, firepit, and the massive kitchen area we could all spread out comfortably. The beds were so comfortable and fluffy! The pictures do not do justice to just how magnificent the property is and the view of the lake was breathtaking. Our family is already making plans to return - it was a week we'll never forget!
. Oct 2017
We had a two-day meeting for 17 people and the house worked out great for the event. The facility was first class and well set up with all the little touches to make us feel welcome. We were able to meet in the large living space with the main group and break-out groups could still meet in the sports bar, or theater area. Having the group stay at the house worked well for teambuilding and continued discussions around the fire, or out on the pontoon boat. We will definitely bring our team back for another meeting when we can!

We spent a week at Whispering Pines Lodge in October 2017. We hosted a simple wedding ceremony there for our daughter and son in law. The house is in beautiful, like new condition. When we arrived the place was very clean and all was in order. The Manager stayed in touch throughout our week and made sure we didn't have any issues. Their maintenance man stopped by to clean the hot tub every other day or so. All members of our family were very pleased with the stay. It is unusual to find a place that can sleep so many people in one house and at such a luxurious level. The kitchen as also well outfitted with refrigeration, cooking tools, dishes, etc. One recommendation though: If you like to cook as we do be sure to bring your own kitchen knives. The set that is there is unusable. We had to have a late arrival bring a full set. That is a small issue though, overall our stay at Whispering Pines was exceptional and family members were asking about booking again next year!
. Oct 2017
We headed north with a crew of neighborhood families - 12 adults & 14 kids. Whispering Pines didn't even flinch at those numbers. Kids had their own spaces & bedrooms (they piled into the bunkbed rooms). The place itself is one-of-a-kind. Layout is perfect, living spaces are open & airy, movie room was a kid-magnet, fishing off the dock provided hours of perch-catching fun, kitchen is huge & well-equipped. 5-star all the way!! Definitely returning!

We were so happy with our stay at Whispering Pines Lodge with our family. The location was great, not to far from town. It is a fantastic place. Beautifully furnished inside and out. Had everything you could want, all top quality. The yard had swing set and great fire pit , which we enjoyed each evening. The owner always was quick to help if we needed something or had questions. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to come to Eagle River. It was way more wonderful than what we expected.
