Boar's Head has been a family cottage for over 50 years. I have spent every summer, save a few, in Eagle River. Ownership transferred just in time to provide the same experience for my children. We relish every moment spent here and are thrilled to share a slice of heaven with others. My plan is to stay in the house during reservations, giving guests as much privacy as they are comfortable with. However, there may be opportunities for a private stay depending on my schedule.

***The 'street view' is of the highway - we are not on the highway!

Boar's Head, a modest two story Greek Revival was built around 1850. Remodeling brought this cottage from somewhere between the Stone Age and the Industrial Revolution to a very comfortable modern abode. High quality salvaged materials were used; granite counter tops, tumbled limestone and Brazilian Cherry flooring.

The kitchen is fully equipped, an island with counter seating for two and a small table for breakfasts, card games or late night sessions of world problem solving. The 1st floor bathroom has a shower/tub combination. A laundry room is also located off the kitchen with a washer and dryer, a line is strung outside. The next room doubles as a sitting room and the dining room. Lastly, the living room with a couch, love seat and recliner. Any one is suitable for an afternoon nap.

The second floor has two proper bedrooms, an alcove ( bedroom #3) and a European style bathroom (basically a shower with a sink and toilet - no bidet). The master bedroom has a queen size bed - very comfortable. The 2nd bedroom has a double bed and a bunk bed. Plenty of space for 5 -7 guests. We have a large yard with a deck, patio table and chairs. In the shed you will find bikes and, sports and outdoor equipment.

My most favorite place on the planet is the front porch. Here you can greet the day at your own pace with a cup of coffee or tea. Each evening displays it's own unique sunset. The amusement continues at dusk while watching bats hunt for insects. Later you can make s'mores at the fire pit.

Our neighbors are very friendly. The small village has a general store, mostly noted for its hand-dipped ice cream cones and casual banter. The Eagle River Inn with Fitzgerald's Restaurant (great barbecue, extensive whiskey bar and beer menu) is located on the shore. The township has a beautiful sandy public beach. Being the County Seat, Eagle River is the home to the Sheriff's Office (first response) and Court House. The Township Hall, the one-room school house now houses the Eagle River Historical Museum. No doubt Andy Griffith's Mayberry will come to mind. A wide open field for flying kites, playing baseball or soccer has a beautiful view of Lake Superior. An "old-school" playground and a tennis/basketball (or pickleball) court is off to the side.

Yes, you will have flies and mosquitoes but such a small price to pay for all of the possibilities to experience a life that has become so rare. Lots of places to ride your bike, road or mountain and several hiking trails are close by.

I can tell you so much more information upon your request.
