Property description

You’ll find this unassuming home’s front door opens to the Best Location on Mercer Lake. Upon entering the house you’ll be greeted with a warm eclectic atmosphere and spectacular view that begs you to step out on a spacious deck. This 4 Bedroom House with 2 Full Bathrooms has an Enormous Outdoor Living Room, Dining Room and Breakfast Bar on the Deck. If this isn’t enough to lure you to the great outdoors, the Private Hot Tub and Boat/Swimming Dock will be calling for your attention. However, the roomy great room and living area will take care of you if you prefer the comfy indoors with a good book.

Our cove is considered one of the safest places to swim and play on the lake as boaters generally consider this area to be a “no wake” zone. Thus it is quiet and boats tied to docks are protected. However if water skiing, wake boarding or Jet Skiing is your preference, the main lake offers plenty of space to “tear it up” and have fun. Mercer Lake is also known for kayaking, stand up paddling, canoeing and fishing. So that you may fully enjoy the lake, 2 kayaks and 1 canoe plus floating toys are available at the house.

The kitchen is fully equipped to serve dinner for 10. We have a full supply of pots, pans, casserole dishes, bowls, etc. to cook just about anything you can imagine and a dishwasher makes cleanup a cinch. You will also find a waffle iron, microwave, blender and deluxe coffee/espresso maker to round out the appliances. You’ll have plenty of room to cook together or you can keep the kitchen to yourself and talk to others sitting on the stools at the counter.

The MASTER BR has a comfy KING SIZE BED and direct access to a bathroom. It also has a large sliding glass door out to the deck. You can leave the curtains open and wake to the morning sun or keep the curtains closed for a late morning rest. The sliding doors also give you direct access to the hot tub. The closet has plenty of storage with full length mirrors.

The SECOND BR has a QUEEN SIZE BED with side tables and lamps. The THIRD BR is cozy with a QUEEN SIZE BED and has a sliding glass door which opens to the patio and is a few short steps to the hot tub.

The BUNKBED in the FOURTH BR is a DOUBLE on the bottom with a TWIN on top. For your guests that really like to sleep, this is the quietest bedroom in the house. The shade from the fir trees just outside this room insure that the morning sun will not be waking you up first thing in the morning.

This great FAMILY HOUSE is low tech and needs no TV or internet access because the lake will captivate you from the time you wake up until your last, late night soak in the hot tub under the stars. You can wake up with the sunrise and enjoy your coffee on the deck while the morning mist rises in swirls off the lake as the air warms. In this quiet neighborhood you’ll sleep soundly after a day of fun outdoor activities. However, we do have both WI-FI BROADBAND service and limited CABLE TV access in addition to many board games and books for those cool, rainy days that occasionally happen.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: We are a family that used this house extensively while our kids grew up. With them both at college, we are using it less. My daughter describes this as 'the best place on earth.' I am inclined to agree with her with the exception of Hawaii in the winter. We have amazing family memories and have shared it over the years with friends which created many traditions- night time swims followed by a warm hot tub, coffee cake on Sunday mornings, endless LIFE games, summer reading and learning to ski/wakeboard and swim!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Mercer Lake is off HWY 101 and while it may be 68 degrees and blowing on the HWY or beach our location is so protected that we will be basking in 80 degrees and protected from the wind. If Lake activities aren't your only interests, Florence boasts awesome dunes to play on, beaches for long walks and shell collecting, a Casino for gambling, 2 golf courses and just north of Florence are the Sea Lion Caves, great hikes, horseback riding on the beach, and the Aquarium in Newport.
