“Fall Getaway”
Reviewed 26 September 2012

My husband and I wanted 2 get away for a nice quite relaxing weekend for our Anniversary. Edgewater Inn & Cottages perfect rustic hotel that allows pets for $10 a night; if you don't have kids that need a pool. It is very old but comfy, kind of feels like camp or your cottage. It was pefect for us since i ended up getting sick. Fri. afternoon and spent rest of night in bed. Which i felt like i was home sick in bed. Saturday I was ready to go went in office talked 2 Fritz he suggeested lots of places to go from the shops, 2 nature places, 2 the flower place.
This hotel is not for the high maintence kind of girl or guy; very old laid back; I would recommend it 2 any but these kind of people and adult's with kids that need a pool.
Thanks for a wonderful stay this past weekend and making our Anniversary enjoyable!

Room Tip: Stay in the room with the king bed if it's only 2 people!

Edgewater Inn is a simple and comfortable place to start from and come back to after a day of touring.
The inn is not new and has probably seen better days but it is a very good value for your money.
You have a choice of rooms at the main inn building or a self-catering cottage of which a few are located on the grounds.
We stayed in the main building, in the best room - No. 9.
The back yard is beautiful and slopes right down to the river. Very relaxing.
Fritz the proprietor is very friendly and provided valuable information regarding where to go and what to see.
The inn doesn't serve breakfast (or any other meals), so be prepared.
Be sure to have breakfast at least once at the "Flour Sack" nearby (reviewed by me separately).
At the end of the day Edgewater was what we expected and we certainly enjoyed our stay there.

Room Tip: If you go for the main building - Room #9 has the best view by far.

I have stayed at Edgewater with friends and family for over two decades and I have to say through a few owners. Fritz has been one of the most passionate people about his business, his home. That's one of the things I love the most out of everywhere I've stayed in Eagle River growing up, Fritz makes you feel at home. Like it is your home too. If there's any questions on what to do or where to go, weather it's Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter fun (which I've visited every season) he knows! And if by a slim chance he doesn't he will go the distance to find out. If there's any problems he fixes it right away (which we only ran into one since Fritz took over) and it was due to the extreme winter temp. Thank You Fritz for always making it fun and making us feel safe and like family. To me and my family that means the world! See you soon!

My boyfriend and I decided to relax for the weekend after working crazy retail hours and Fritz had an available cottage for us even though it was short notice. After a 6 hour drive from Chicago, the place was nothing but quiet and beautiful. Fritz is very passionate and committed to his property and guests and provided a great, welcoming stay. He is very personable and made our stay fun, and friendly. We especially loved the deck on the river, it was a PERFECT stay and we can't wait to go back in the winter time for snowmobiling.

My son actually picked the Edgewater because we were looking for a traditional, up north, summer vacation. He picked a winner. Our cabin felt like home the minute we walked in the door. Fritz is very friendly and has good suggestions for things to do, although we really didn't need them since we spent our days swimming and relaxing. I am eagerly looking forward to going back.

Quaint, cozy, and gorgeous. We loved our stay at Edgewater. It felt like staying at grandma's cabin. The location is conveniently close to downtown, but the property's river/lakefront was secluded and picturesque. Everything you could want from a true Northwoods experience.
If "modern" is what you are looking for, I recommend a chain hotel or staying in a big city. Edgewater is beautiful and rustic. It's clean and well-managed and the owner is kind and knowledgeable. I have been vacationing in northern Wisconsin my whole life and Edgewater maintains the peaceful, old-fashioned feel that I love about being in the Northwoods.
