We stayed in the Last Wilderness Retreat home for a family gathering, and it more than exceeded our expectations. The owners are excellent communicators, and made sure every question we had was answered quickly. Their home is wonderfully secluded, but close to Mercer, WI, where a well stocked market met all our food and beverage needs. This home is spacious and perfectly appointed for its log home aesthetic - hardwood floors, splendid rugs, and plenty of couches, pillows, and blankets to curl up on a cold day, or retreat for a nap on a warm one. The views of the lake from the main living areas, kitchen, and a few of the bedrooms are beautiful, and we saw exceptional sunsets in June. The gourmet kitchen has everything you need to cook anything you want, and the gas grill works perfectly. We spent many hours on the deck, which has plenty of seating and hummingbird visitors! The lower level beds are perfect for kids of all ages, and a first floor master bedroom, with fireplace and bath, accommodated our mother easily. The two upper level bedrooms have their own baths, and one even has a fireplace! We enjoyed taking out the pontoon on the pristine lake, using the canoe, and relaxing in the enclosed hot tub. The bedding and beds were so comfortable. We took advantage of the wood burning fireplace downstairs to wind down our day, and plenty of wood was available to do so. We departed Last Wilderness Retreat with fond memories of our family get-together in the perfect home, and would pick this home again for any gathering, without hesitation!
