Mercer, Wisconsin is a year-round wonderland for those who enjoy peace & tranquility and outdoor activities. Sunrise Ridge is located on popular Wilson Lake just five miles from town and five miles from the famous Turtle Flambeau Flowage. Sunrise Ridge is a privately owned, three bedroom, 1 3/4 bath, fully furnished home.
You will enjoy the views of the lake from the second floor deck that extends the whole length of the house, with three patio doors (even one from the master bedroom) that go out onto the deck. This vacation home is decorated in the northwoods style and boasts the best view of the lake and the most beautiful sunrises!
Wilson lake is a 155 acre, premier fishing lake in the Mercer area. Bring your own boat, rent the pontoon boat, or fish from the shore or dock. Wilson Lake is known for its abundant large mouth bass, crappies, blue gills, and perch, as well as muskies and northern pike.
Many eagles, loons, and otters have made Wilson Lake their home and playground. They are not shy about making appearances and entertain guests daily. Imagine sunning yourself on the deck and watching as the otters frolic on shoreline and the eagles soar up above! Or enjoying a nice warm cup of coffee while watching the sun rise above the trees and reflecting on the water like shimmering diamonds.
Take a short ride to the Turtle Flambeau Flowage and enjoy a miniature version of Canada's Boundary Waters which offers excellent fishing, bird-watching, site-seeing, canoeing, and kayaking. Take a boat ride out to 'Swimmer's Island' and relax on the sand beach or wade in the warm shallow waters. Don't forget your picnic lunch!
Mercer and Iron County boast hundreds of miles of groomed trails for ATVing and snowmobiling. As well as trails for hiking and cross-country skiing. Public land for in-season, small game hunting is also abundant.
