Water Resources: 

Big Saint Germain Lake
Big Saint, as it is known locally, is truly a centerpiece for abundant recreation in The Northwoods. The size of the lake (1,617 acres) makes it special and allows for unlimited boating activities ranging from exciting jet-skiing and water-skiing to relaxing pontoon tours. The lake is also considered a top notch fishery and hosts many fishing tournaments. It offers a wide variety of species including Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, and trophy caliber Pike and Musky.

This review from Lake-Link.com sums it up:
"The best musky lake in St. Germain! Five days five fish, 35, 40, 41, 44, and 45! Lost twice that many and 2 50+ inchers!"

Big Saint Germain Lake and all its amenities and activities are easily accessed from Lake Content through a boat channel that connects it to Lake Content.

Lake Content
Lake Content was first discovered in 1889 when travelers from Chicago headed north to find a spot that was complexly unpopulated where they could get away from it all. After canoeing up the Wisconsin River from Tomahawk, they followed a passage made by Indians and discovered the lake. Upon seeing the lake a member of the party remarked “here we shall be content” and the name stuck. The Lake offers a private peaceful setting with 239 acres yet is connected to Big Saint Germain Lake through a channel. This is your chance to own a secluded lot on a smaller lake with access to larger bodies of water.

Recreational Considerations: 

For the Water Enthusiast…
Get in your canoe or pontoon boat and meander across the tranquil waters of Lake Content for a relaxing morning or afternoon, or if adventure is what you seek, with nearly 2,000 acres of water to access and thousands of acres in the surrounding area, there's plenty of room for the whole family to enjoy water sports from waterskiing to tubing.

For The Angler...
Well known for its fishing, Big Saint and Lake Content, along with thousands of acres of additional water nearby, offer Wisconsin's finest angling, from lunker-sized crappie to trophy Muskie. Stories of 50 inch musky are not un-common in the local bait shops. Some of the best fishing starts when the lakes freeze over. Ice fishing is very popular in the area and is a fun activity when fall comes to an end.

For the Outdoors Lover…
Home of the authentic Northwoods experience since the late 1800s, the Northwoods has been a prized destination for people from miles around. You'll find miles and miles of trails, including the newly paved St. Germain Bike & Hike Trail, which can be easily accessed from EagleWatch, for biking, hiking, bird watching and lakeside strolls. When summer ends, the area is a preferred destination for winter enthusiasts that flock here for the area’s top-quality snowmobile and cross country ski trails.

For the Golfer…
St. Germain is within a short drive of 16 area golf courses including the St. Germain Golf Club, ranked as 4 ½ stars by Golf Digest, which is only a couple miles from EagleWatch.

With everything the Northwoods has to offer at your fingertips, EagleWatch is the perfect spot for your vacation home and with this amount of property in an exclusive location being offered at auction, this is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity.


The property has historically been used as a corporate retreat and is being offered to the public in its entirety for the first time in more than 5 decades.


The 2013 net assessed value tax rate in St. Germain was $8.77.
