Came up on a business trip and Karl, the Bartender, made me feel like a regular vacationer! It's so nice to come to an older establishment and have a clean, modern feel with the feeling of old family vacations!

Great place with a perfect location for boating!! Easy access to golf course and marina. Excellent food. You will see Deer at night while sipping wine on your deck! If lucky, even an Eagle!

We stayed at the Chanticleer Inn May 15th and May 16th. We wanted a comfortable sleeping experience, and it was definitely that. The beds there are very clean and comfortable. The decor was also relaxing. Each room has a deck with a bistro set. Heat and air conditioning are also supplied. There is a restaurant connected to the Inn. Fine dining at its best! The staff is very nice. The other people staying there were well behaved and courteous. There are many things to see and do within an hours drive. We thoroughly enjoyed the zoo. We would definitely stay there again; and would recommend to anyone.

I used to come here years ago with my family. We would always come up in the summer and always had a great time. So, 20 years later, I decided to bring my own kids up so they could enjoy the Wisconsin winter. I was greeted by Jake, who has been running the resort for years! Everyone we talked with was very friendly and always willing to help.

We chose Villa #4, which was very nice for a family and has a great gas fireplace! All of the furnishings and items in the room were in great condition; great job maintaining the place!! I have many great memories as kid, visiting the Chanticleer Inn and 20 years later, things are still great!!!

This lodge is located on the point of Eagle River, is like coming home. Friendly owners and amenities with great water sports in the summer and snowmobiling in the winter. Our family reunion took over a large part of the place with fireside chats, night time walks, ice fishing and hot cider for the kids, with a full bar for the adults. It was obvious that deer season was in full swing with deer on most vehicles in town. Although we didn't experience the summer fun, numerous fishing guides offered to show me the best sites and I understand the boating and skiing are the best in the area. Loved our time here! Hope to return again soon!!

Chanticleer is a must stay for our family! We love the condos for family reunions. Some are three levels, so we can have a lot of family and open up the deck so the kids can run between houses! We love watching the deer and shooting stars from the deck. Dollar Lakke is great for the kids to swim and fish!

The lodge is wonderful! The lake side tables are great and the menu is delicious! Everyone is so friendly and welcoming - it feels like coming home each time we return. Don't miss the Beer Garden in the summer! 

Thank you for all of the memories!!!

We have been staying at this place in one way or another, meaning motel rooms, villas, suites and condos, for the past twenty years. The Chanticleer is not a brand new resort with flashy amenities and exorbitant prices. Although there have been a few bumps in the road over the past 20 years, overall, this is a wonderful place. Our last visit was just this past weekend and we can't wait to go back for the fall colors!!

We have been going to the Chanticleer for the past 8 years and love it! It's always difficult to leave the lake view behind us as we head back to our flatland home, and this year was no exception. Their new rental, Hudson House, was terrific!!

Along with putting together a fine staff (including friendly Herb, Minnow, Carol and Nancy), a very difficult task in Northern Wisconsin, Jake makes sure the grounds and accomodations are immaculate and the guests feel welcome. We'll be requesting the Hudson House when we return next year for our vacation at the Chanticleer!!

We just stayed for the second time at the Chanticleer Inn. The first time was about 6 years ago! Place is still great!! We've stayed both times in Villa #1; great, clean and quiet. Very polite, helpful staff. Family owned makes a difference! The villa overlooks the lake and since we were the for snowmobiling, the trail was less than a minute from our door. Perfect!!!
