Location Details

There's no need to leave the comfort of the property during your getaway! The cabin is ideally located on the shores of Lake of the Falls. You can take the provided canoe or kayak out for a spin on the lake, or simply swim off the dock in the refreshing water.

Mercer has no shortage of things to do once the temperature starts to drop! The house cabin is located on a snowmobile and ATV trail, which provides hours of entertainment all winter long. If you'd rather take it a bit slower and enjoy Mother Nature, there is another trail close to the property called Mecca Trail and is great for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing!

When you grow tired of cooking or grilling at the cabin, take a short walk down to Dear Lodge to grab a few brews and some tasty pizza. There are a many other restaurants in the quaint town that are sure to hit the spot when hunger strikes!

  • Peaceful Retreat


    The cabin was well appointed, clean, spacious, as described. The cabin's location is private, wooded, and located on a peaceful waterfront. Mercer is a fantastic small town, and the people were very nice. It's pretty centrally located within 30/45 minute drive to many other towns of interest. Communication with Dave was excellent. Would definitely come back.

  • The No Snow Snowmobiling Trip of 2023


    Can't wait to stay when the lower level is finished! Perfect for our little get away! Planned the trip for snowmobiling, but no snow, the chance you take, and we decided not to cancel and didn't bring the sleds but got up every morning to beautiful view and made the best of it!!

    My wife, infant, dog, and I spent the week here in the fall. The weather was cold but the cabin was warm and inviting. Super easy and simple check-in process. Great location to hiking trails and other points of interest.

    We enjoyed our stay very much. It was easy to find and had great views from sun room and living room. We used the front porch as much as possible (but we had rain and it was chilly). I appreciate that there was a full size coffee maker along with and the Keurig (which had a large box of coffee and hot chocolate) and many great kitchen features. I found the indoor furniture was very uncomfortable and the steps were very steep. I would definitely go back as Dave was in contact to make sure all was well.
