Eagle Lake HotelsIf there's one thing Canada is famous for (apart from Maple syrup), it is its wide open spaces and truly arresting natural environments. Eagle Lake is certainly no exception, and this untouched, vibrant area teems with wildlife, nature trails, and of course, the glittering lake itself. If you're looking for a vacation that takes you back to basics while escaping the high octane pace of city life, Eagle Lake is the ideal spot for everyone from couples and families to hunting enthusiasts. Things to seeOne thing that sets Eagle Lake apart from many other similar destinations in Canada is the fishing. The clear, fresh waters of the lake are home to the 5 major species pursued by fishermen, including Smallmouth Bass and Northern Pike. There's nothing quite like grilling your fresh catch over an open fire, while taking in the glowing sunset. Many of the fish here also reach record sizes, so if you're after a challenge, Eagle Lake is the perfect spot to test your fishing mettle. Of course, the gentle ebbs and flows of the lake also make the ideal setting for leisure boating or canoeing, and there's well over 400 islands to explore. There's also the sweeping curves of the pine forests and rolling hills that surround the lake, which are perfect for hiking, mountain biking, or simply pottering through and taking in the serene views.Hotels in Eagle LakeHotels in Eagle Lake are mainly locally run lodges, and given the natural isolation of the area, these lodges also form the hubs of the community. You'll find that these idyllic log cottages and cabins come with all the basics you'll need to get comfortable. Many of the lodge staff are on hand to offer fishing or hunting advice, and you can use the kitchen in the lodge cabins to cook up a super fresh, delectable dinner with your catch of the day. Where to stayGiven the fairly limited availability of accommodation around the lake, unless you're planning on camping, the northern section of the lake's calming shores are where the majority of the accommodation and cabin lodgings can be found. While cabins are par for the course at Eagle Lake, some offer better views than others, and if you want to be close to the glistening waters for fishing or boating, then finding accommodation that hugs the shoreline makes sense. Almost all the accommodation choices at the lake are equally suitable for families, couples, or even solitary travelers. How to get to Eagle LakeEagle Lake is out in the heart of the Canadian wilderness, which means the only way to reach the area easily is by car. Flying into Minneapolis (St Paul's International) is the closest major airport, and from here it's simply a case of hiring a car and heading to International Falls at the US/Canada border. From here, following route 11 east, then route 502 towards Dryden sets you in the right direction. The drive is quite long, but the stunning views more than make up for this. Once at Eagle Lake, boating or walking will be the order of the day, and you'll only need the car if you're heading into town for supplies.

"This was the perfect winter weekend getaway. There was great cross country skiing just a 10 minute drive away and what a way to unwind after with the water spa. The food was outstanding. Perfect package."
