About Angie, Owner
As my husband David and I worked to restore the 1940's resort (2 cabins now - Lakewood Upper and Lakewood Lower, once part of a larger resort beginning the 1940's) we knew we had found a special place. It deserved to be enjoyed again by individuals and families who are looking to return to a simpler time. To enjoy peace and quiet. Eagles above, loons calling from the lake while in comfortable, updated and immaculately clean accommodations. We look forward to sharing our labor of love with you!
Angie, Owner purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Angie, Owner chose Mercer
My husband and I knew this property was extraordinary the moment we started down the tree lined driveway. Close to town but seems far, far away. We love that it's 5 minutes to grocery store, restaurants and more but you'd never guess when you are sitting on the deck or dock. Original stand of hemlock trees is where The Hemlocks Retreat gets it's name. 400 feet of lakefront on our own private point provides guests the opportunity to see both sunrise and sunset views.
What makes this Cabin unique
We have a new paved walking and bicycle trail in Mercer that extends 7 miles south of town. It connects with the Manitowish Waters trails. We encourage and welcome all silent sports fans. Our road is paved so bicycling is just one of the many activities to enjoy in Mercer, WI Loon Capital of the World.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
This will be a place to return to again and again.
From the initial inquiry to our leaving the cabin at the end of the week, our rental and stay was an absolutely wonderful experience! Angie is extremely attentive, thoughtful and accommodating; she took great care to make sure we were comfortable and informed about the cabin on our arrival. The cabin is cozy, immaculate and stocked with everything you might need! This cabin has been lovingly restored with modern necessities, great decor, and immediately made us feel at home! I loved how quiet the lake is and still relatively undeveloped. If you are looking for a place to really unplug, you can do that here! Having a private dock allowed for lots of time to decompress, listen to loons and enjoy some beautiful sunsets. The only downside is that I now have to wait another 51 weeks to return! I am already greatly looking forward to returning.
Another great stay at The Hemlocks Retreat
As regular annual guests of The Hemlocks Retreat we are never disappointed. Our reservation is already made for 2020!!
Thank you for being great guests and choosing us for your annual upnorth vacation. We look forward to your next visit in 2020!

It couldn't have been better!
A '40's typical Upnorth rental cabin that has been renewed, remodeled, redone and very nicely decorated. Probably one of the nicest cabins we've stayed in, in all our trips Upnorth. The pictures don't do it justice! Very private setting with great views - water on 3 sides. Communication with Angie was second to none - she was a great hostess and made sure we knew everything we needed to know through the whole process, including a tour with explanations in the cabin at check-in time. Everything you could want or need is there, right to the smallest detail except food.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Loved having you as guests. Thank you for treating the cabin like your own, we really appreciate it.
We are looking forward to your next visit!

We got penalized for halving fun
Are experience started out great but we soon found ourselves being told we were too loud.We lost our security deposit for halving my son visit a few hours one evening. Didn't like being on camera when I am on vacation renting a cabin would not recommended this property. Mercer Lakes fish also showed to have lots of white parasites
We appreciate those that seek us out for what we offer - peace, quiet and a respite from the busy lives we all lead.
We are grateful for and thank all of our guests who have enjoyed our retreat and treated our cabin and grounds as it if was their own - with care and respect.
We welcome those that share that philosophy.

Overall Great Experience!
We have been visiting the North Woods annually for the past 6 years and we have to say that our experience at the lower cabin at the Hemlocks has been our best vacation yet! Upon arrival, Angie meet us at the cabin and gave us a calendar of events and listing of local amenities to enjoy. Although you are only minutes from town the cabin sits on a secluded lot with peaceful surroundings. The cabin is cozy, comfortable, and quiet while providing updated amenities. If you are in need of wifi connectivity, no need to worry, I was able to connect while in the middle of the lake! With the private dock just feet from the cabin door we were able to easily access our boat or sit on the dock and enjoy the view. We look forward to returning in 2019 and have already booked our stay!
Thank you so much for your heartwarming review. We love to hear when our retreat serves as a welcome respite.
So glad our upgraded wifi served you well. Thank you for your 'test' results from the middle of the lake - appreciate knowing and will be sure to share it with future guests as well.
Thank you again, looking forward to seeing you both next August!
Peaceful Northwoods Getaway
Our family had a wonderful time in the Hemlocks Retreat Lower Cabin. Angie was a kind and helpful host and the cabin had everything we needed for our stay. The views are great. The location is great. Only a couple of minutes into town but you feel like your miles away. We hope to stay here again in 2019!
Thank you for your kind review.
So glad you and your family enjoyed staying with us - we hope to see you again in 2019!
