Mom & Dad Weekend Getaway
Mom & Dad Weekend Getaway
Home was clean and ready for us upon arrival. Perfect house for a 4 day getaway. Home kitchen has all basic needs. Boat pier was easy to use and we were able to dock our boat all three nights. Neighbors were friendly and considerate, asked if we minded fireworks at night for the kids. My husband fished all day, everyday. He caught approx 30 Bass, 20in Bass was the largest. Thank you for a nice home to relax in and sitting on the front deck at night was truly relaxing. Parking in back for our truck and boat trailer was ample.Recommended resturants were great!

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.
