The Everett Resort one of the largest and most noted in the lake region of northern Wisconsin, conducted by E. A. EVERETT, is ideally located and presents unusual features to the vacationist. It is in the heart of the famous "Eagle Waters," comprising a great inland water-course with many land-locked lakes adjacent thereto. This chain of 27 lakes is navigable from end to end. The high altitude, affording perfect drainage, pure water and dry atmosphere, also give relief to those suffering from hay fever or kindred troubles. The tourist finds so many attractions and advantages that of the great number coming here many decide to make it their permanent summer home and annually take an active part in the life of the resort, which aids in giving it a home atmosphere. The success is largely due to an unvarying good table, cleanliness, attending to detail and a thorough equipment. The equipment embraces an attractive main lodge and service buildings, many cottages of varying capacities, comfortable and pleasing in design; daily mail, telephone and electric lights. The amusements include fishing, boating, bathing, tramping, camping, golf, tennis and a well planned dancing pavillion over the water. The fish native to these waters are the black and green bass, pike, muskellunge and pickerel; brook and rainbow trout fishing is easly obtainable. The golf grounds, a nine-hole course beautifully located, are about one mile from the resort and reached by launch or auto. Automobile routes enable the tourist to make many interesting trips through this famous summer playing-ground. Accommodation for autos is provided at the resort and guides, boats and motorboat service are at hand when wanted. Mr. EVERETT'S post office is Eagle River, from which place it is but five and a half miles to the resort. The season of 1923 is the twenty-third of this resort and it has gained in reputation every year.
