Mercer cottage description

Location.location.location. Just ride your ATV or Snowmobile down the driveway and hook into Iron County Trail #10 to join in hundreds of trails.

Self sufficient cabin (towels & linens provided), Gas Fireplace and Lakefront windows for a great breeze and view. We offer picnic table, charcoal grill and stackable outdoor chairs for sitting around the campfire & enjoying the stars and sounds of nature!
The lake is a DNR Quality Lake with clear water, sandy bottom and fisherman weeds. The lake is terrific for fishing; boating, tubing, skiing, or ice fishing. You are provided a rowboat/oars/lifejackets, a motor is available for rent. You also may keep your own private boat at the dock once launched at the public boat landing.

Kitchen is fully equipped right down to crockpot to cook dinner as you are out snowmobiling or fishing for the day. Cabin has two tv's with 60 channels of cable; plus a DVD player & VCR. We also stock DVD/VHS movies for your enjoyment. We also offer nintendo and board games for the occassional rainy day. Rollaway beds are available if needed for a nominal fee.

Two night minimum stay required. You may rent for multiple days, weekly or monthly.

Pets are allowed with prior approval.

Air Conditioning will be available in 2013 (summer 2012 was just too hot). So much for nature's natural air conditioning!

We are located just 1.5 miles outside of the town of Mercer. Not too close to town and not far out in the wild and wooly.

We have an adjacent 'East' cottage sometimes available for rent too.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2005

          About the owner: Ed and I decided to buy this property as we found ourselves renting private homes over the past 30 years for snowmobiling, atving and summer weekend and weekly getaways. We thought this location is perfect from trail #10 and not too far from town. Nice lake and so much beauty from the woody area and the sound of the loons. Abundant wildlife of squirrels, otters, eagles, deer, fox, coyote, wolves and bear. We have even seen a bobcat on our webcam! Now you can enjoy too as we made it feel like home away from home when we cannot be there to enjoy it!

          Why the Owner Chose Mercer:
          Location, location, location. Cleanliness, comfort and affordability. It gives us great pleasure to be able to share our accommodations for a reasonable fee when we cannot take advantage of the property. Hopefully, many others will create lasting memories and traditions as we had with our family.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          Just down the driveway is Iron County ATV/Snowmobile Trail #10. Quiet, serene, peaceful - but not too far away from anything should you want to get somewhere. During the winter you can snowmobile across the lake to cut into the trail too! Not a resort but a two private homes on nearly an acre of land! Ample parking for trailers and sleds/atv's.
