Beautiful. Clean. Lovely appointments. Huge property. Views for days. Peaceful. Close to cute downtown. Management company very responsive. Would i stay again???? 1000000%

If your viewing this property…go ahead and book it! You won’t be sorry! The home is absolutely beautiful! And the lot the home sits on is incredible! The only thing I would pre-warn you is that although there is lots of dishes, pots and pans… this home doesn’t have any “extra items” such as Pam, tinfoil, dish soap, salt/pepper…. Book it! Bring plenty of cooking supplies if you wish to cook and enjoy your stay!
Christina O. Apr 2022
The home was a dream for us. We loved the space, the wood work, and the location. We had so much fun enjoying the snow in April. Very clean and spacious and the kitchen was perfect for cooking big family meals. We can't wait to go back.
Michael M. Mar 2022
This place had everything we needed and a great time was had by all! We will be back next year.
Rose A M. Dec 2021
This home was absolutely beautiful!
Thinking of making it a family get away tradition !
Seamus O. Nov 2021
This is a super cozy house in a great location, and on a very appealing piece of property that affords lots of privacy. Importantly, the Vacasa reps in the area were incredibly respondent, proactive, and friendly. However, not sure we’d stay here again on account of the water situation in the house. Specifically, the water had a noticeable smell in the shower. The color of the water coming out of the sink taps was gross, even after boiling it. We didn’t feel clean after showering, and didn’t trust the water enough to use the washer and dryer. We tried not to think about the dishwasher and dishwashing effectiveness. Any more than the three days we were there would have been a problem
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Seamus. While we are pleased to hear the location of this cozy home worked well for you, we are sorry to hear of the water issue that prevented you from fully enjoying your visit. This home does run off of a well, however, our local manager has confirmed there is no odor coming from the water as the home has a highly functional water softener system. The water filter has since been replaced and the sink taps have been cleared and there have been no further issues with the water supply to this home. We appreciate your feedback and hope we have the opportunity to host you for an outstanding stay in the future.

Our multigenerational family had a great stay in this home. The cabin has clearly been beautifully crafted, if getting a little dated in terms of some of the interior at this point. There were several bed options in the loft giving some flexibility in terms of sleeping arrangements (although lacking in privacy).

Not a lot of bathrooms (3 full, one on each floor), with the main floor bathroom also serving as the general powder room, and the top floor bathroom quite cramped space wise.

Really home-like feel, very cozy.

Great lot on a point with a small private beach and dock for a boat, as well as a playlet for the kids.

Very scenic area and lake.

Tom K. Sep 2021
Beautiful home, perfect location, great amenities, nice beach and frontage, deer so tame they come and eat popcorn out of your hand. Conveniently across the lake from Boat Sport Marina so you can rent a boat and dock it at your pier. Just wish they allowed a small dog. Had a blast and will definitely be back!!
Manager response:
Hi Tom, We are so happy to hear that the home and the location were perfect for you. Though this home does not allow pets we do have several homes that do. Please feel free to give us a call the next time you want to book and we can help you find one that will allow you to bring your dog. We look forward to hosting you again!
Jeff S. Aug 2021
Loved the location and house layout.
Didn't like: worn furniture, toilets that plug and not flush properly, holes in screens. tired mattresses, shower floor loose tile, worn out pots and pans.
Manager response:
Hello, Jeff! Thank you for staying with us! We are so glad you had a great time! We take guest feedback seriously, and have forwarded this information to the local staff so they can review and update the home as needed for future guests. We will be sure to follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your experience. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon!
David E. M. Aug 2021
it’s a large & wonderful place for multiple families BUT for the amount of rent THERE SHOULD BE A GENERATOR AS OUR POWER WAS OUT FOR 12 hours ….. no water, no internet, no tv , and NO TOILETS
Manager response:
Hi, David! Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us. We apologize the severe storms caused a blackout in the area of this rental. The electric crews worked as quickly as they could to restore power. Hopefully you otherwise enjoyed your visit!
Cody R. May 2021
The place is very convenient, right on the lake to provide access for fishing or swimming. Nice to have a pool table downstairs and be able to have more than 10 people be sbke to sleep comfortably. Will rent again for sure.
Adam S. May 2021
Came up here to get away and do a little fishing, got hooked up with a great guide and the fishing was great! The cabin is second to none and truly is an incredible piece of property. Lots of stuff for the kids to do. Sits out on a peninsula with your own little sand beach and dock. Highly recommend to anyone who is thinking about getting away for a couple days, we will be back for sure!
Nate Z. May 2021
We had an amazing time at this beautiful cabin. Slept 9 dudes perfectly. Big kitchen for group meals. Walking distance to Lumpys Bar. Downstairs is great for hangin out.
Randy B. Feb 2021
Nice home. Easy to relax and enjoy the north woods with view of the lake and lake access with the snowmobiles.
Amy P. Jan 2021
This is a perfect vacation home to stay for a long weekend. Ample parking, roomy bedrooms, awesome fireplace & right next to the lake.
Terese S. Nov 2020
We truly enjoyed this Northwoods getaway. It was a wonderful home, warm and inviting.
Barbara B. Oct 2020
We loved the house and the entire property. House is beautiful, spacious, and comfortable. The back yard has lots of trees, fantastic views of the lake, well-prepared sitting areas, and a bonfire area. We were able to relax despite the cold weather. There was tons to do...
Sasha S. Sep 2020
My extended family and I recently stayed at this beautiful home - the location is fantastic, right on the water, protected, gorgeous. The interior is outfitted for a very comfortable stay, we particularly enjoyed the living room, game room, and wrap around deck. When we had a small maintenance issue, the property manager and Vacasa team were incredibly responsive and easy to work with. Will definitely be going back!
Manager response:
Thank you for your review! We appreciate your feedback and have notified the local manager of your suggestions. We hope to host you again soon!
Angela K. Jun 2020
This was the perfect vacation home for our families. The location was amazing and we enjoyed the beautiful home and lake frontage. Easy access to the public boat launch and a nice sized dock allowed us to keep our boat on-site and accessible. There were a few minor glitches in the home that can easily be addressed for future guests - for example all 4 burners in the stove top didn’t seem to function properly, the patio screens had a few small tears, the pool table queues were missing tips, firewood pile was a bit of a mess, we had no propane for the grill upon arrival, and the boat oars didn’t work properly with the row boat. We did talk with Vacasa to have a handyman come out to fix the boat oars and provide a new propane tank but unfortunately it was at the back end our our short stay. Overall I would highly recommend this home - it was absolutely gorgeous!
Danae N. Jun 2020
Gorgeous home, spacious. Lots of towels and ample bedding. Great to have a washer and dryer. Loved having an entire peninsula to ourselves. Great fishing for the kids. Nice dock, swim area, fire pit, and swing set. Pool sticks unusuable (tips need to be replaced). Window A/C's did not all fit tightly so there were large gaps in the windows. Would definitely recommend this place for bug groups!
paul v. May 2020
Great access to Eagle River chain lakes.
Very comfortable. Also Eagle River Golf is close.
Julie W. Feb 2020
We loved the Cabin! It was very clean and spacious. This was our second time staying at this home. We look forward to coming back!
Holly B. Feb 2020
This house is spacious, has great amenities and was perfect for a group of 14. We highly recommend this place and will be back next year!
Laura J G. Jan 2020
House was beautiful! The property is very pretty and would love to go back in the summer!
Mark S. Oct 2019
The house fit our family of 14 comfortably. Plenty of room to spread out between the kitchen/dining area, living room, and family/recreation room. Plus the yard was fantastic. The kids enjoyed the playset, the campfire, canoe, and wonderful views from the dock.
James S. Sep 2019
Everything was fantastic from the time we walked in through the door to the time we left. The house is well appointed with ample space to relax. Outdoor grounds offered great views. Highly recommend!
William T. Aug 2019
Clean house
Ann R. Aug 2019
Everything we needed was there.
Three generations enjoyed the quiet ,peaceful surroundings with plenty of yard for games and fun times around the camp fire!
Also loved having the boats too.
Kathy H. Jul 2019
Had a wonderful vacation at this beautiful log home on a picturesque property. The home accommodated eight adults and five children under six with room to spare. Everything we needed was at our fingertips. The management team was outstanding. We asked for an additional room air conditioner and they were at our home within 30 minutes. The wraparound porch was perfect for early morning coffee and late night conversation. If you visit in the summer, I would highly recommend renting a pontoon from Bubba’s Boats. We were on ours exploring the lakes at least twice a day. The eagle sightings were spectacular!
James R. Jul 2019
Great property!
Scott L. Jun 2019
We rented this beautiful home for a family vacation. There were 11 of us and had plenty of space for everyone. It is located on the chain of lakes so we rented a pontoon and had great days on the water. The home was stocked with everything that we needed so it was a care free relaxing week. We will definitely book it again.
Andrew R. Jun 2019
This cabin was gorgeous! Clean and spacious, with a great deck to hang out on. Would definitely go back!
Only thing to mention- the overview of the home says there is central air, which there is not. The property managers were very prompt with putting in window units when we called and asked about it, but just something to note!
Manager response:
Hello Andrew, Thank you for your review and feedback! We apologize for the miscommunication and issue you experienced with the Air Conditioning. We have updated the listing to reflect that there is no central A/C, but instead window units. We hope to host you again soon!
Sarah N. Jun 2019
Beautiful log cabin, great amenities and outstanding property and location.
Herschel P. May 2019
Lots of space. Furnished beautifully.
Close to all of Eagle River restaurants and shops.
rose d. Apr 2019
This is the fourth time we’ve stayed at this home and first time in April! We love the Northwoods and enjoy spending time with our adult son and his family. This home accommodates us perfectly and is big enough to give everyone their own space. It is extremely well appointed and very private. We love the proximity to downtown Eagle River. We will definitely be back!!
Joanice R. Apr 2019
Cabin was absolutely beautiful and very well equipped. Met and exceeded our expectations highly recommended.

If your are looking for high quality, and and a place for lasting memories, this is the place! Absolutely beautiful home with everything you need. We stayed here for a weekend and couldn't be more pleased. It was just the 2 of us for the weekend but there is room for a big family gathering. Very nice amenities, full kitchen with high end appliences. Wrap around porch with great views of the lake. Very nice beds with awesome bedding, leather couches to lounge on in front of the fireplace. This is definitely a place where you get what you pay for! Anyone can stay at a cheap motel or something like that but if you want the best, this is it! Liquor store was less than 2 minute drive. I will definitely be staying here again. The only negative thing I can say is that the back sliding door would not lock but that is easily fixable by the owner. Just absolutely amazing! 5 stars all around, no doubt about it!

We have been going to the Island View Lodge for 4 years, and the Conger group does a really nice job of maintaining it and working with the renter. The house is clean, spacious, and very accommodating.

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Island ViewLodge. It was everything we had hoped for.
. Aug 2017
The Island View Lodge was spectacular, but what we could not get over was the layout of the outside. We had it all. Great fire pit ready to go, great dock, canoe, fishing boat (with ores) little sand beach, perfect outdoor seating, fantastic wrap around deck and lovely Catfish Lake. Secluded yet close to town and trails. WOW. We Fished, hiked and rented a pontoon. Enough room for 12. Perfect in every way. Thumbs up for this one.
. Mar 2017
We had a relaxing family vacation. The lodge and view were amazing. All the comforts of home and more.
. Jan 2017
We booked the Island View Lodge with our family. We love to ice fish, and it was wonderful to be able to walk out of the cabin onto Catfish lake, where we caught some big krappes! The cabin was so beautiful we didn't want to leave.
. Dec 2016
we have never booked a home for a vacation. The home is absolutely gorgeous and plenty of room for all of us. We had a wonderful time and the family is thinking we maybe need to make this a new tradition. Beautiful.

Wonderful, relaxing chance to get the entire family of 10 together in a house that was as beautiful as its private location.Bonfires, fireworks, bike rides, a swing set, a beach and more.Perfect for our VERY wide age range. What more could you ask for? We all loved it!

The property was perfect. Clean, spacious, welcoming, inviting everything we had hoped for. The outside space was just as perfect as the inside. Plenty to do rain or shine.
. Feb 2016
We had a great time, almost too big of a house for a group of 7.
. Dec 2015
This vacation home was the PERFECT setting for our after Christmas family get away. Comfortably slept two adults, five teenagers and three kids. Beautiful home, great location.
. Oct 2015
We drove up to Eagle River for a long weekend with some old friends and couldn't have been more excited about this rental! We are avid hikers and this was the most amazing time to traipse through the woods and see all the fall colors. We spent hours in Nicolet National Forest and were so glad to relax in this beautiful house after a full day's hike. The fireplace downstairs by the pool table was so perfect! We were cozy and entertained, PLUS the kitchen had everything! We made breakfast each morning and had coffee on the porch watching the beautiful lake! There are just so many memories! Thanks for having us!

The cabin was perfect for our family of 11 to relax and spread out. We all liked cooking in the huge well equipped kitchen. There were enough beds for all of us. The fishing was fun too.
. Sep 2015
For a year I have looked forward to staying in this beautiful place. I knew I could either find it all I dreamt it would be or it could be a disappointment. It was ALL I thought it would be. The cabin home is so beautiful and inviting. It was clean and well equipped. Thank you!
