HISTORY OF THE EVERETT RESORT
The Everett Resort is located on the Everett Peninsula, a narrow peninsula that separates Catfish Lake from Cranberry Lake, the largest and 2nd larges lakes on the Eagle River chain of lakes located in the heart of Wisconsin’s North Woods. During its peak, The Everett Resort was one of the largest and grandest American Plan resorts in the Eagle River area.
The Main Building, constructed c.1896, was the physical and social center of activity at The Everett Resort and between the 1920 – 1930, provided dining for up to three hundred guests each day. The Everett Resort’s Sunroom, Clubhouse, Gables, Eisenhower and Linen Room, and the resort’s Marina Bar were all constructed in the early twentieth century. The resort also constructed individual guest cottages along the shorelines Catfish and Cranberry lakes. The Everett Resort’s Rustic and Craftsman style buildings were built with logs, wood and stone, reflecting a strong relationship with their natural surroundings.
The buildings of the Everett Resort have been visual landmarks on the lake for generations of Eagle River residents and vacationers. The Everett Resort stands as a reminder of an American Plan Resort and the grand era of vacationing in Wisconsin’s North Woods. In 1951 after the decline of the Resort Era, the Everett Resort was divided up and sold. The main resort buildings and a few cottages remained as one parcel, while the majority of the guest cottages were sold to private owners many being guests who frequented The Everett Resort year after year. Today, the Everett Resort no longer operates as a full American Plan Resort. The Everett Resort was purchased in 2018 and underwent extensive renovation with great care being taken to honor and retain as much of the original structure and design while offering all new and modern amenities for guests. The resort name was changed to simply, “The Everett” and now operates as vacation rental resort.
