Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2.00 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to Moonshadow Retreat. I'm so exited to share my Mercer Lakefront home with you, your family and friends.

This was was previously known as Sammy's Cabin, so if you've stayed here in the past, you know that it was a great house. Moonshadow Retreat though, is a fantastic home on Mercer Lake.

I've updated the furnishings, restocked the kitchen, pantry and bathrooms. New living room furniture and carpet have arrived. Carpet is so soft on your bare feet and the sofa just makes you want to curl up and unwind! There is now a flat screen TV in the living room and the 2nd bedroom has it's own TV/DVD as well.

In the summer/fall months, you won't have time to even want to watch TV, you'll want to be out on the large deck, dock, in or on the Lake, in the hot tub or out fishing in the supplied pedal boat.

There are 2 bikes and helmets for your enjoyment.

The hot tub is wonderful with views of the Lake.

I just planted a herb garden, making cooking that much more fun and tasty! I am hoping guests will water as necessary during your stay.

Big picture windows in the living area and kitchen, with Mercer Lake and forest views.

'Moonshadow Memory Wall' coming soon. All guest are encouraged to mail in up to 5 photos of their visit here. The pictures will then be added to the wall.

Mercer Lake is great for swimming, boating, jet skiing, waterskiing, canoeing, kayaking and fishing. My first weekend I stayed here, there were 2 bald eagles that hung around the entire day. Moonshadow Retreat is located in a quiet cove on Mercer Lake so it's very safe for swimming and floating.

Pedal Boat is here!!! Fun, fun, fun! There are 4 adult life jackets available, but please bring your own for children or if other sizes are needed.

Sleeps 4-6+ 2 Bedroom/2 Bathroom

Master Bedroom: King bed, large closet/TV/DVD/VHS/Cable

2nd Bedroom: Queen bed, TV, DVD/Cable

Living Area: Premium Sofa Double Bed, queen inflatable available, 40' flat screen TV, DVD, VHS/Cable/Wireless Internet , Bose I-Pod Dock and CD Player

Moonshadow Retreat is perfect for family and friend gatherings or that romantic getaway for two!

If you've never experienced Mercer Lake, you are in for such a treat!

About Leslie

I've lived in Eugene most of my life.

Why Leslie chose Florence

I've been visiting Mercer Lake for over 20 years and have always dreamed of being able to have my own home here. It's the best of so many worlds. You can ski, tub, fish, relax right here on the lake or within minutes you can be at the beach, casino, Old Town Florence, Sea Lion Caves, Siuslaw River or either of the golf courses.

What makes this house unique

This was previously a vacation rental and I actually rented it previously. It was a nice house, but now it's a home. I've tried to take the things I've experienced of my stays at vacation rentals and incorporate as many as I could here. I like that there is a fenced yard for dogs (although it's only 3 feet high). I will be continuing with updates through 2012. New living room furniture and carpet are now installed and have arrived, as well as a new gel mattress cover for 2nd bedroom. What a difference. We are getting dock cleats and fender's for the dock. I am hoping for a new dock in 2013, keep your fingers crossed! Planning on adding more plants and new grass in the fall of 2012. I'm finding out that it really does take awhile to change a house to a home.

Perfect family lake house

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five (3-50) had a great time at Moonshadow Retreat. The location is on a beautiful and peaceful part of Mercer Lake. A short 5 minute drive into Florence. Easily one of the best stocked vacation rentals we have been to and the welcome note and wine were appreciated. The pedal boat and hot tub were favorites for us. We plan on coming back.

Clean and comfortable home.

We had a wonderful relaxing time even though it rained most of the time. The view of the lake was gorgeous. Our dog enjoyed her swim. We are already talking about another visit.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time!! Would love to return and share with family when we are in Oregon again!! Would maybe be helpful if the house #’s were painted different color than house (make it a little easier to find when you are directionally impaired like us! Haha!) But the House was terrific!!
