About Tim & Lisa Wightman
We are a family of 8 who love everything about the outdoors. There is no better place to enjoy summer and winter activities than the Northwoods of Wisconsin.
Tim & Lisa Wightman purchased this House in 2013
Why Tim & Lisa Wightman chose Mercer
We have been enjoying summer and winter vacations in the Manitowish Waters/Mercer area for over 20 years. We have been looking for the perfect home for our family of 8 to enjoy. When we found Tall Pines, we knew it would be the perfect vacation retreat for our family, friends and future renters.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with the 657 feet of beautiful lake frontage on secluded 2 acres surrounded by tall pine trees. Being at the top of the hill looking down on the lake provides fantastic views. The house is very comfortable and spacious with plenty of room for a large family.

This house is immaculate and gorgeous, set in the middle of towering pines with lake views abound.
The house has just about everything you need to live the lake life right. We had a great time.
Very nice cabin
Good Snowmobiling experience, nice cabin and views. The owners are friendly and good to communicate with. The lower level fireplace did not work and the boards on the shuffleboard table are warped. Overall we would recommend the property and rent it again.
We appreciate the review and are glad you had a good experience and would stay again. That in itself speaks volumes about the quality of our property and rental experience we strive to provide to each of our renters.
I wanted to specifically address a couple of your comments. My understanding is you informed the property manager about the problem with the lower level gas fireplace and also requested to purchase more wood for the upper level fireplace. At which point, the property manager came out and delivered more wood and attempted to fix the gas fireplace. When is became apparent that a service call was required they called to schedule someone but the lead time was two weeks. We apologize for any inconvenience that may have caused you but there was literally nothing more that could be done during your stay.
Regarding the shuffleboard, the top is one solid piece that like any wood will contract and expand based on the humidity in the the air. There are manual adjustments that can be made to the surface that we perform multiple times throughout the year. Even after an adjustment is made it can take weeks for the surface to fully respond. It is not a perfect process and next to impossible to measure the humidity in the air and make adjustments when the temperatures and humidity are constantly changing.
Awesome cabin and perfect setting all year round
Clean gorgeous cabin that is perfect for groups and families
Outstanding property in a great location!
We had a great weekend staying in this beautiful home that is close to a great snowmobile trail system. The owners were very easy to work with and the property was everything they said it would be.
Lovely home with all the amenities
We stayed over Christmas with our family. The owners surprised us and put up Christmas decorations. I was so happy that they made the home look so festive! It was quite cold outside while we were there so did not partake in all of the winter activities that we had planned to do. We enjoyed games that we brought along and they have a ton of games and books at the home as well. We especially loved the big screen tv and gas fireplace in the basement. The views from the main floor are stunning. The kitchen is well stocked with cookware, dinnerware, etc. They have a few empty kitchen cabinets as well to store your things, which I appreciate, as I don’t like to live with messy countertops. All in all, a great place and we had a great time.
Second time renting! Highly recommend!
This is our second time renting this property and it was amazing both times. The first time was in the summer and the second was in the winter. Exceptionally clean and well cared for. It was great we got to enjoy the Christmas decorations throughout the entire house. We will definitely rent this one again!
