About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Red House on the Hill on Dam Lake in Eagle River, WI, offers four season lodging just southwest of downtown Eagle River on the 5 lake Sugar Camp Chain. This 2 bedroom, 1 bath air conditioned rental is located on the north shore of Dam Lake with 275' of sandy shoreline. There are 10 acres on the water with an additional 50 acres across the road abutting the American Legion State Forest for hunting, hiking, biking and exploring. The home has a queen size bed in the master bedroom and a set of twin beds in the second bedroom. The living room has a spectacular view of the lake and has a wood burning fireplace and a queen size sofa sleeper. The home has a beautiful country kitchen overlooking the woods. There is a lakeside deck with a million dollar view of Dam Lake. The Sugar Camp Chain has a total of 2300 acres of water that includes Dam Lake, Sand Lake, Stone Lake, Echo Lake, and Chain Lake. This is a wonderful body of water with Canadian like backwaters for excellent fishing and exploring and for the photographers there are abundant eagle, osprey and loon nests. This property is ideal for hunting as you walk from your door onto 50 acres of private woods abutting the American Legion State Forest. In the Winter, snowmobile from your door onto hundreds of miles of the best groomed and marked trails in the country, as the Eagle River Sno-Eagles, St. Germain Bo-Boen and Sugar Camp Snowmobile trails all merge at Dam Lake (the popular trail #15). ****PLEASE NOTE: Until Google Maps updates their maps, there are road names on Google Maps that are incorrectly placed. What Google has listed as "Sunrise Lane" is actually our driveway, and the house is located at the end of the driveway, on the lake. (What Google shows as "Twin Shores Ct" is actually "Sunrise Lane.)

House on the Hill

  • 4 of 5

The house was as advertised. Very clean and comfortable. It was 44 steps down to the water. Our 3 Goldens settled right in and enjoyed the swimming and morning walks. You could set on the deck overlooking the lake, in the sun, and read a book while the dogs dried off. We golfed Plum Lake, St. Germain and Eagle River. All enjoyable courses. All in all, a relaxing week.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your Up North home with us. The home was one of the cleanest places we have ever stayed in, especially considering you let us and others bring our four legged friends along. There was everything that we needed. You can see the pride you have put into it and you made us feel comfortable and welcome. Although the walk to the lake was a good workout, the views from the house were amazing.

Pure Enjoyment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Red House on the Hill from July 7-14, 2018. There were five of us plus one dog. We planned our trip to fish and to have access to more than one lake from our dock on Dam Lake. This house was perfect for us. We found everything in great condition and very clean. The A/C came in handy on some of the warmer nights. The kitchen was fully stocked and again, very clean. We rented a pontoon from Paul's Rent-All in St. Germain that we picked up at the boat landing the day we got to Dam Lake and dropped off the night before we left at the same landing. The pontoon was the best choice, as we could all fish and move about freely. We also were able to sit back and enjoy just cruising the channels from lake to lake. On the really warm days (there were plenty which was great) we'd anchor on a sandbar and all enjoy a refreshing swim. We were very successful fishing on Dam Lake. If you want to know where, you'll have to read the Visitor Book that we signed prior to leaving the Red House on the Hill! Thanks to the Weno's for a wonderful vacation!

Great time on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I with our 2 young kids and a dog stayed here and had a really fun time. The kids loved swimming in the water. The house is clean, the kitchen is fully stocked and the deck has an awesome view of the lake. We were able to grill and eat outside on the picnic table and often ended the night with a campfire. Eagle River is close by which was great for a day trip to the children's museum.
