The Lodge Today

Today, you will find the Hiawatha Lodge with the classic Northwoods charm you remember from way back when, but with the convenience of many modern updates. We have honored the same vision of the previous owners to be a welcoming and relaxing place to rest and spend time with your favorite people. That’s why we have developed multiple spaces on our property for you to spend time together indoors and out. Whether it be in our bright game room; on a cozy couch by one of our fireplaces or the indoor theater; on a picnic table, patio chairs, or playground; or on our dock admiring the lake, you can always find a place to relax and unwind. Since each guest room has it’s own exterior door, you are always just steps away from the great outdoors!

We strive to be very thoughtful in our attention to detail; providing clean, beautiful Northwoods style rooms for our guests. That is why we choose to use planet friendly materials in maintaining our lodge. The health of our environment and our guests are important to us!

History of the Lodge

The Hiawatha property was originally a resort with a main house, small cottages, and a restaurant. The first owners had a vision of making Eagle River not only a great place to enjoy the great outdoors, but also a destination for families and friends to enjoy ample space and many other amenities indoors. The restaurant grew into the historical Hiawatha Supper Club. In the 1960’s, two friends divided the property and one built a 29 room motel called the Hiawatha Motor Inn. It was the first hotel in the Eagle River area to boast an indoor pool. The Hiawatha Motor Inn paved the way for other resorts to be developed and made Eagle River a resort vacation destination.

In 2011, we updated the name to The Hiawatha Lodge to better reflect what we have become. The ample lobby, large stone fireplace, and media center provide lodge-sized gathering spaces for our guests. Thanks to the original builder’s vision of providing large spaces for travelers, the lodge has stood the test of time. The building was built using concrete cinder blocks instead of wood and sheet-rock. Each room has full bathrooms and vaulted ceilings which provide extra breathing room. Between the solid construction and constant updating (a recent favorite is the pillow top mattresses!), we know our guests will enjoy a comfortable stay.
