LUX Hotel & Spa Awards 2016 74 LUX - Hotel & Spa Awards 2016 Best Family Resort 2016 - Wisconsin As Curt Bradley explains, “we want to make you feel that you are in a luxurious setting while ‘roughing it’ in the North Woods.” The plethoric space of the lodge complex is populated by condos, outfitted with all the mod-cons a guest could ever require. These one-, two- or three-bedroom lodge homes feature a complete kitchen, gas fireplace in the living area, two full-size bathrooms, high-speed internet, cable television – plus DVD players – and a patio or balcony overlooking the lakes. Built on a spit of land separating Duck and Lynx Lakes, there are opportunities galore for water-borne activities, such as canoeing, fishing and jet-skiing. Back on land, the nearby Eagle River area is home to a great many shops; after a dose of retail therapy, guests may return home sporting unique new clothes, jewellery and charms. Alongside these accommodation options come a vast array of amenities: tennis and basketball courts, a sand volleyball court, a playground area, a beautiful sandy beach, boat piers, and an inside swimming pool for year-round use, including a sauna and massage room. Along the walkways sprawled out along the lakeside, a scattering of fire pits with wonderful rustic furniture are ideal spots for barbeques and ghost stories. With the celebrated snowmobile trail right outside their doorstep, the Lodge also benefits hugely from a continued influx of clients throughout the winter season. Best Family Resort 2016 - Wisconsin The curious balance between proximity to civilization and frontiersman-like separation that the Wild Eagle Lodge carries gives it unique advantages, making it suitable for a range of functions. Condos up for sale along the two lakes afford families with a regular retreat spot, their own personal eyrie in the North Woods. The lodge’s facilities are also well-suited towards hosting corporate meetings. Most of all, though the beautiful shoreline is almost tailor-made for weddings. “We are able to create a beautiful shoreline ceremony location for a breath- taking wedding memory. We also offer a spacious event lawn to have your festive wedding reception under an elegant rental tent for groups up to 500 people. “ Located in the heart of the North Woods, Wild Eagle Lodge is nestled on 20 acres at the forested edge of the famous Eagle River Chain of 28 Lakes – billed as the world’s largest chain of lakes – making it an idyllic retreat. This property has existed here since 2004, with more than enough distractions for any visitor to make it a home away from home.
