Why Dawn Perez chose Mercer
Growing up, my family had vacationed in the Great Northwoods for many years. I had many fond memories of time spent 'up north' playing at the lake. A few years ago, my own family actually rented Grandma Dorothy's for 2 summers, when it became available for purchase. I couldn't bear the thought of not being able to spend time at Grandma Dorothy's. We wanted to continue the tradition of spending time here with family and friends. We bought the place and have been spending vacations up here ever since.
What makes this Cabin unique
I love the convenience of living just on the outskirts of town, but having the feel of being secluded in a lakeside retreat. We can walk or ride bikes into town, or to the beach, etc, many times a day. The kids are never bored because there is so much to do. One of my favorite things to do is take a stroll on the trail near the house, either early morning, or at dusk. Often times I will spot deer or other wildlife along the path.

"on golden pond" experience
cottage turned out to be handicap accessible, not required but
helpful. weather was great. very serene setting - fishing boat,
detached guest accommodation a plus, a step back in time for
our 60th wedding anniversary. spacious cottage with sun room, large dining area plus great room with fireplace
and a jigsaw puzzle table - l,000 pieces - a challenge.
Great summer vacation spot
Enjoyed this place on Echo, for part 3 years. Great area, good fishing, friendly neighborhood. Great place to spend with family.
My sister and I had a nice stay, with no problems. My sister loved the extra room in the lakehouse where she slept one of the nights and frequently read her books. There was not much activity on the lake, very quiet and peaceful.
Was a very nice home to stay in. Lots of room. Easy to get to dock. Even for me with a cane. Enjoyed both the kayak and canoe. We all enjoyed the fishing. You really do need another bathroom. I noticed you had plans for another one plus bedroom. Great idea. We would easily recommend your vacation to others.
Overall clean and comfortable but could use a couple updates
For a snowmobile weekend it was a nice place to stop at the end of the day and have a fire and cook dinner. Thanks for supplying wood for the fireplace. It worked great. Very peaceful and private. Neighbor was friendly. Kitchen had good utensils and pots and pans. Great view of the sunset.
Couple of things to know - The TV made a high pitched whining noise that wouldn't go away. The pull-out couch facing the TV is not in good shape. Corner missing and not comfortable for sleeping.
Thanks for sharing your place with us.
Thank you for your feedback. We were unaware there was a problem with the TV. If you had let us know during your stay, we could have remedied the problem. Now that we know, we will have the problem addressed.
Also, not sure what you mean by the corner being missing on the couch. In my opinion, a sofa sleeper is never as comfortable as a bed. At least I have never found one that compares to my own mattress. The sofa sleeper is there for additional guests, for a convenience, so that people don't have to sleep on an air mattress. Knowing that, it might be a good idea to rent a place with more beds next time.
Sorry our place did not live up to your expectations,
