“Great Family Vacation Resort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2004

I first stayed at the Chanticleer as a kid, with my family, sometime around the early 1980's. We went back about a dozen more times growing up, and then we went back last summer as adults. It was just as much fun this time around as it was years ago.

The location is beautiful - prototypical Northwoods - lakes, trees and beaches. The resort facilities are not exactly new, and the decor is a bit outdated. But the rooms and condos are clean and well-designed. The resort restaurant is pretty good, though nothing spectacular. I'd recommend going to any of the dozens of really good restaurants within a short drive (particularly the White Stag). Prices are very reasonable, and you can get multi-level condo type units if you have a big family.

The really great thing about this resort though, is all the things you can do. There are two beaches (use the one on Dollar Lake, which is bigger and nicer than the one on Voyaguer). There are facilities for tennis, volleyball, badmitton, basketball, and lots more. And plenty of water sports possibilities of course, like water skiing and boat rentals. Fishing on the Chain of Lakes is excellent, if you know where to go.

The resort is actually just outside the town of Eagle River, so it's away from the summer crowds, but very near recreation and loads of excellent restaurants. There is also fun shopping to be had in Eagle River, and in other nearby towns.

If you are looking for a family vacation destintation, and want to avoid the noise and prices of the Dells, I highly recommend making the trip north to Chanticleer.
