You’re welcome to walk our 20 acres of kettles and moraines crested with towering oaks and lush with an abundance of native prairie plants and wildlife. Or just sit…choose a porch or a parlor where our collection of period publications might catch your eye.
“Old World Wisconsin”, a unique outdoor museum of living history, is one-half mile from our door. About three miles west, you’ll find the headquarters of the Kettle Moraine State Forest, Southern Unit . Lapham Peak, part of the Kettle Moraine is a 20 minute drive. Both Old World Wisconsin and the Kettle Moraine State Forest offer miles of hiking and cross country ski trails. Downhill skiing, sledding, biking, shopping, antique hunting, golfing, lakes for fishing, boating and swimming, plus several riding stables are all nearby. If you would like assistance in planning your stay, just ask. We would be pleased to assist.

"We very much enjoyed meeting both of you and everything about our visit at Eagle Center House! We had a wonderful time at Old World Wisconsin (who should put you on the payroll, with your historical continuity). Eagle Center House was almost like staying at an OWW inn (except for the AC and indoor plumbing, thanks!)."
