About Bill Buhmann
Purchased the Northernwood as a getaway property for me, my wife Cheryl and my two college-aged daughters in 2010. Still living in the Chicago area, but looking to spend more and more time in Mercer as we reach retirement.
Bill Buhmann purchased this Cabin in 2010
Why Bill Buhmann chose Mercer
The Northernwood is a perfect north woods getaway. Although not directly on a lake, it has shared access to Spider lake only two blocks away and hundreds of lakes that you could travel to within 30 minutes. Nestled on a wooded 3 1/2 acre lot on a dead-end road, it has all of the privacy that you would want. The Northernwood has direct access to both ATV and Snowmobile trails. There are over 200 miles of ATV/UTV trails in Iron County, and thousands of miles of snowmobile trails in Iron and neighboring counties.

A great getaway
My wife and I hosted our teenage grandkids in the Northern Woods log cabin for a week, and everyone enjoyed every minute. Loved it is probably a better description.
The modern three bedrooms and two bathrooms met all of our needs, and the solidly built cabin was creak-free so we could move about freely with disturbing each other. Time spent watching the birds and wildlife was greatly treasured, as was our time around the campfire and on the covered deck. The area is also great for nature hikes. Our movie fanatic grandson was thrilled with the surround sound audio system.
The only regret we had was not figuring out how to get the kayaks to Spider Lake without a truck or roof rack. The two block portage was more than we could handle. We still found plenty to fill our days.
Eight Thumbs Up!
Nice cabin, very quite and relaxing
very peaceful location. close to town if needed. enjoyed our stay
Loved the outdoor deck and enjoyed the peaceful nature around us
It seemed odd not to have a kitchen table the five of us could eat meals at. Kitchen/living room space was cozy so even having a picnic table on deck would have been nice. Additionally we think they had carpets cleaned in lower level right before we arrived as floor was damp and dehumidifier had to run constantly.
Beautiful cabin and property!
Really enjoyed our stay. Cabin was clean and well appointed. Property is beautiful and close to town for any needs you may have.
Couple of neighbors close to the lake access point took it upon themselves to chastise our kids for being on a “privet lake” but they we soon corrected as soon as I found the offending individuals. Only suggestion here would be some sort of HOA communication or something. Regardless of that little hiccup, great time and would return again!
The perfect home away from home.
We had everything we needed and more while staying here. The owners were super nice and responsive when needed! We did see a fair share of wildlife. Some I've never seen before in the 15-20 years coming up there.
We are excited that you enjoyed our property and we hope you visit us again in the future!
Peaceful and serene
We were looking for a “up north” get away and this was all that we had hoped for and more. Very nicely appointed and comfortable.
