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 was our second stay at The Hemlock Retreat and we could not have been more pleased. The cabin is tucked away in a gorgeous location, extremely clean, and soo relaxing. The outdoor balcony faces the lake and we thoroughly enjoyed the view. The owner, Angie, is so very helpful and available for any questions you may have or anything you need. All of the beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is perfect for making family breakfasts before a day of water sports. Thank you for the wonderul family vacation in such a peaceful setting.
Our cabin on Mercer Lake was perfect! The owners were so accommodating and helpful. Thank you Angie and Dave! They even had a little compressor they brought the next day to blow up our floats for the lake. Cabin was super clean. Loved the huge deck that faced the lake. We had our own private pier. Saw lots of wildlife and fishing was good! So much to do when going to town as well. The surprise balloons/sunglasses for the kids made it even more special along with the fresh flowers. Loved it! Can't wait to go back someday!
You and your family were a pleasure to meet and host. Thank you for leaving the cabin super clean!
We are happy everyone had fun, we hope to see you back soon!

You will love this cottage
Nothing but a positive experience from the initial messaging to our return home. This husband and wife team put love back into these cottages to give you the feel of what it was like in the earlier years, but with every amenity that you are used to at home. You will have it all. Angie has missed nothing in her preparation of these cottages for your use. And if you need it, she probably has it available. I was amazed at the level of detail I found.... Even a little sewing kit if you have an issue..
Now. The location is great. Easy to get to. The cottage was fantastic. The views are million dollar... We saw Eagles, listened to and watched the loons, caught fish. Relaxed. Utilized Angie's extensive knowledge to sample some of the best locations for dinner. The "up north"weather was just what we needed after the hot midwest summer. This is definitely a place that you can recharge at, and go home wanting to return.
Thanks for such an enjoyable week
Zowie Richard, such a nice review!
David and I are so glad you had a great time in our cabin. That is exactly what we like to hear!
We do our best to eliminate stress while guests stay with us so hopefully the little extras help.
We love sharing our project from the heart with our guests - we think it is a special place and glad you do too.
Please visit us again soon!
Cozy, peaceful getaway!
From our first communication with owners Angie and David, we knew we were in good hands. All was organized and efficient. The cabin is lovely, immaculate, and nicely decorated. We loved having a private dock where my husband could fish any time and a nice big deck with beautiful views. We were looking to unwind and not do too much, but the cabin is close to lots of activity, too. The place is well stocked and the owners were happy to help and answer any questions. We did not want to leave! Highly recommend.
Thank you so much for your recommendation, we appreciate it very much!
You and your husband were wonderful guests and left the cabin exceptionally well cared for.
We appreciate that you chose The Hemlocks Retreat and hope you will visit us again!
Outstanding Comfortable Cabin on a Beautiful Lake with Tranquil Surroundings
My mother, sister, daughter and I spent a week in this beautiful cabin in mid-July. It was so comfortable and clean, and was equipped with everything we could possibly need, especially in the kitchen. Although we rarely used it, the high speed internet was ridiculously fast, perfect for those who need to be plugged in for any reason. The best part of our stay was the lake. We kayaked daily and were greeted by loons, curious muskrats and turtles. The lake was quiet and tranquil, perfect for fishing. We also sat often on our own private pier. Angie, our host was available in minutes if we needed anything. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone and hope to return again.
It was wonderful to see three generations spending a week together and happy you chose The Hemlocks Retreat.
So glad you all enjoyed your stay, we certainly enjoyed meeting you! You mentioned you were Girl Scouts - you certainly left the cabin in Girl Scout proud condition. :)
Hope to see you again!
Very peaceful and quiet! A great place to unwind.
The views were nice and the cabin itself is modern and updated. One of the nicest ones we’ve stayed at over the years in northern Wisconsin. Highly recommend it for a vacation getaway.
Thank you so much Mark for your recommendation, we appreciate it very much.
Look forward to seeing you and your wife again!
