Are you and your family looking for a northern WI retreat on big water where you can get away, have fun, relax, and make lasting memories? Your search has ended - Welcome to The Getaway Chalet on Eagle Lake. This cedar sided chalet home sleeps up to 10 people with 3 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms.

Included in price:



Cleaning fee

Water sport toys

Much more....

As you enter the newly updated and refurnished home, you are welcomed by a large, open living space with walls of windows that overlook 572 acre Eagle Lake. Eagle Lake is a full recreation, Class A Musky, lake. Eagle Lake is part of the chain of 28 lakes - the largest in the world. Why be limited to one lake while you vacation? Here you can spend endless hours exploring 28 beautiful lakes! This home is also situated next to Dollar Lake that hosts the annual Pond Hockey Tournament. It's an approximate walk of 5 minutes to Dollar lake.

The property is situated on a level lot that offers plenty of driveway space for the kids where they can play, ride their bikes, skateboards, etc... There is a bay window in the kitchen that over looks this safe area for the children to play. There is a horseshoe pit on the side of the home for extra fun. The back yard is very large, and has an expansive paver-patio for entertaining, and has a paver walkway that leads you down to the sand bottom lake. As you enter the lake, it is only 2-3 feet deep for the first 10-15 yards so it makes a great place for children to hang out in and play. Sunshine pours onto this yard all through the day. Spend your evenings sharing the events of the day around the large fire pit. We offer the following for your outside enjoyment: gas grill, fire pit, patio furniture, hammock for relaxing, 2 paddle boards, 2 kayaks, and a canoe. In addition there is a private pier for your boat, and fishing enjoyment.

There is a large, over-sized garage to store your vehicles, boat, snowmobile, toys, etc....

In the interior of the home you will find warm, inviting cabin decor, and comfortable furnishings for the whole family.

Family room: Very large family room with a floor to ceiling stone, gas fire place to keep you warm in the evening. The family room has a full wall of windows that offers an amazing view of Eagle Lake, and has 2 large doors that open as well. There is plenty of seating for all with extra bean bag chairs for extra seating. There is a TV and a dual blue-ray, standard DVD player for movies. Basic DISH-TV also comes with the home and WiFi is available.

Kitchen/Dining: The kitchen is large and open with tons of cabinet and counter space! The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need to prepare and enjoy family meals together. In the dining area there is a large table that sits 6 people, and an island that sits an additional 2+. There is an additional sliding door off of the kitchen that brings you lake side.

Laundry: For your convenience, there is a washer and dryer in the laundry room. Laundry detergent is included.

Main level bedrooms and bathroom: The first bedroom offers a hand peeled cedar log queen size bed. There is a large futon for additional sleeping or relaxing. This room has a large sliding door that brings you out to the patio and facing the lake. A large dresser is available for your clothes.

The second bedroom has a cedar log bunk that has a twin bed over a full bed. There is an additional cot in the closet for even more sleeping. All bedding is included in each of the bedrooms - the beds, futon, and cot. A large dresser is available for your clothes.

There is a full size bathroom on the lower level. Each of the bathrooms include towels, wash clothes, and toilet paper.

The loft area: You will enter the loft area of the home up a beautiful wooden staircase. When you enter the loft area, you will see another dining table that serves as a game table. The game area of the loft also includes: games, books, and coloring books. Although a great game area, this will serve well as additional seating for meals.

There is an additional space within the loft that over looks the family room. This area has a sleeper sofa that offers a spot to sit and relax as you view the lake through the expansive wall of windows. The sleeper sofa offers additional sleeping space - bedding included.

Finally in the loft area of the home you will find a very large master bedroom that features a hand peeled cedar log king size bed. There is a large hickory dresser to store your clothes and extra items. There is a bathroom off of the master that has a tiled shower. The bathrooms all include towels, wash clothes, and toilet paper.

Seasons at the Getaway Chalet:

Summer enjoyment - Most of your time will likely be spent enjoying the property, and all of the enjoyment the lakes have to offer. At night, family games in the home around the stone fireplace, or songs and laughs around the fire pit. There are two national forests in the area for hiking, exploring, bike riding, etc.... Although secluded, and away from hustle and bustle, a benefit to this property is that it is only 5 minutes from down town Eagle River, that offers plenty of shopping, dining, and entertainment. There are many neighboring communities to visit as well. You will see a lot of wildlife while visiting, including deer and bald eagles. Dollar Lake Rd offers a beautiful, safe place to take a long walk or bike ride if you choose. For those that enjoy golf, there are many options in the area! How often can you just throw your clubs in the boat and drive across the lake to golf? Well, here you can as Lake Forest Golf Course is just a quick boat ride away!

Fall: When the leaves are changing, there may only be a few other places more beautiful for viewing than the north woods of WI! Plenty of ATV trails to explore this time of the year. Annual Cranberry Fest is also a well attended attraction every year.

Winter enjoyment: The lake will offer ice fishing, ice skating, and cross country skiing. Eagle river is also considered the snow mobile capital of the world with over 500 miles of groomed trails that can be easily accessed right out the front door of the property. Eagle River also hosts the World Championship Snowmobile Derby. There are many areas to explore while you cross country ski or snow shoe. Not be left out - Pond Hockey Championships! USA Hockey offers an annual 4 on 4 pond hockey championship on Dollar lake - just a few minutes away!! Very cool event to see or take part in!

About Brian

We grew up in WI, but didn't make it up into the north woods until we became adults. The first time we stayed in the Eagle river area, we knew that we had to purchase a property there. Not only for our family to enjoy, but for other families as well! Our children enjoy all of the activities, and mom and dad enjoy watching them have fun, and relaxing!

Brian purchased this chalet in 2015

Why Brian chose Eagle River

We searched for lake homes for 2 years as we were looking for "just the right" property. When we found this home we knew it was perfect! We wanted a chalet for the openness, we wanted big water to be on, we wanted a level, big yard to enjoy, and we wanted to be close to town to enjoy all of the dining, entertainment, and events Eagle River has to offer. This home had it all. We spent two months updating everything, and now it's ready to be thoroughly enjoyed!

What makes this chalet unique

This home has been amazing in many ways and we can't wait to share it with you, your family, and your friends! We hope that your stay gives you many joyful memories as it has done for ours! We hope you enjoy the Getaway Chalet on Eagle Lake!

What a wonderful family vacation in the beautiful Northwoods! The Getaway Chalet was even better than the pictures! Neat as a pin and clean as a whistle! We LOVED the house with its soaring windows overlooking the lake; the huge kitchen and living room! The bedrooms were big and beds were comfy. We thoroughly enjoyed the gorgeous back yard and views of the lake. We played croquet, bocce ball and horseshoes. We rented a boat from Bubba’s Boats that they delivered and picked up right at our dock! So easy! Great location near Eagle River but still so private and peaceful. We will definitely be returning to the Getaway Chalet!

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place and very well maintained. Great place for swimming, kayaking, fishing, and cruising the lakes. No complaints but a discount on a pontoon rental from Chanticleer would be a nice bonus. Very family friendly and my daughter's loved it!

Beautiful home, beautiful location, wonderful accomodations. Will book again without hesitation.

  • 5 of 5

Brian is super accommodating and responsive.

Immersive Northwoods experience with all the creature comforts of well appointed home. Highly recommend renting a boat to explore/fish the eagle chain of lakes and lakeside resort bars and eateries. Local bald eagle out front a nice touch, as well as the many loons in the evening and at dawn. Just, sweet.

Fantastic Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had an amazing time at The Getaway Chalet at Eagle Lake in Eagle River, WI. The facilities are well-maintained and located conveniently close to Eagle River. The lakes are beautiful and clean for fishing and swimming. The sunsets from the pier and second to none. I highly recommend the Getaway Chalet.
