Roomy dog-friendly lakefront home w/ private hot tub, dock, & kayaks

If you want the best of both worlds - lakefront living and beach access a couple miles away - this roomy home in Florence is for you. With its own private hot tub and dock, as well as two kayaks to use on Mercer Lake, you and your group of up to 10 will be set for memorable water-focused vacation. And you can even bring two of your canine buddies along with you!

Located in a quiet neighborhood a few miles north of the center of town right on the banks of Mercer Lake, you'll not only have immediate access to the water from your private dock, you'll enjoy lake views from the back deck. A short six-mile drive puts you at the beach, and several grocery stores are within seven miles.

Modern-retro inside and out, this home is open and inviting. After you arrive and unpack, settle in on the sofa in the living room with a cold beverage or a glass of wine, and revel in lake views through two large windows. (Please note that the wood stove is not functional.) Catch a show or movie on the flatscreen cable TV, or if the weather's nice, hang out on the deck, right at the water's edge.

Come mealtime, put the master griller in your group to work at the gas grill outside and enjoy a group cookout with your favorite music playing on the stereo/CD player. Or head to the spacious kitchen featuring standard appliances - including a dishwasher - plentiful counterspace and storage, and small appliances, like a waffle iron, microwave, deluxe coffee/espresso maker, and blender. Make something new with a recipe you found online, thanks to the complimentary WiFi. Then convene at the dining table for eight and savor your meal together.

When the sun sets, this four-bedroom, two-bath home offers you and your guests several sleeping options, with a maximum occupancy of 10. (Two dogs are also welcome for a small nightly fee.) The master bedroom boasts a king-size bed and en suite bathroom, along with deck and hot tub access. The second bedroom features a queen-size bed, while the third also has a queen with deck and hot tub access. The fourth bedroom offers a twin-over-double bunk. There is also a laundry room, allowing you to pack light.

This home is set to provide you with all the entertainment and recreation you need. With two kayaks and a canoe right at the house and Mercer Lake just outside your door, you'll be able to get out on the water anytime you like. This small inlet of the lake is deemed a "no wake" zone, you can rest assured that it's a safe place to swim and play. You can head out to the main lake for kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, canoeing, or fishing. And if you want more rambunctious water activity, do some water skiing, jet skiing, and wake boarding on the main lake (or head south to one of the many other lakes surrounding the town).

When you feel like staying in, make good use of the selection of games in this home and engage in some friendly competition. Or find a quiet corner and get lost in a good book, which you'll also find here. Revel in the peace and quiet as you begin each day on the deck with a cup of tea and watch the morning mist rise up off the water. Bring each day to a close while you stargaze and take a luxurious soak in the hot tub.

Of course, since you're just a few miles north of the charming town of Florence, be sure to spend some time exploring. Head into Old Town for an afternoon of souvenir shopping, dining at the wonderful restaurants, and strolling along the boardwalk, which borders the Siuslaw River. Spend an exciting evening at the Three Rivers Casino, book a tee time at one of the two golf courses, or head south of town to take a sand rail tour on the towering sand dunes.

Treat yourself and your family and friends to The Best Place on Mercer Lake, and come prepared to enjoy some exceptional R&R together. Make your reservation today, and start making plans!

*Please note that all parties must be at least 25 years old to rent this home, thank you.

Right on the lake. Nice place, great hot tub
Joan M. June 2018
Home has multi decks to enjoy the beautiful, peaceful lake. It was clean, well decorated and had everything anyone would need for their stay. Great kitchen. We all LOVED it!

This location was nothing short of a dream!
Donald H. May 2018
Large well laid out home, huge tri-level deck, awesome, peace view of the lake. Only draw back was parking.
Jen H. May 2018
We enjoyed our stay immensely! Wish we would’ve had access to the kayaks, but other than that, the deck was amazing, the dock was great for our ski’s and for fishing. The lake views were majestic! Property manager responded very quickly to our questions. We will be back.
Dmitry K. April 2018
The place was really nice I would definitely be going there again even as soon as this summer if not this supper next year.
Amy R. April 2018
This house felt surprisingly bigger than it appeared online. It was very well furnished and had a real authentic lake house feel. We will likely re-visit and look forward to warmer weather. Could have used a more thorough vaccuming however. 4 Stars still.
David M. April 2018
Awesome place to stay. Was very impressed until we realized we left a tablet at the house. Contacted the owner and was told not a problem we will ship it to you for a fee. We are to blame for leaving it so I have no issues with a shipping fee. Problem is we still have not been sent the tablet and no one from the home has contacted us. I can't recommend staying here, wish I could because it was a nice place. Very disappointed with the owner who promised it would be sent back to and took a fee as well.

We are very sorry to see this guest did not hear back from us about their lost & found items. During spring break we get a lot of these and did miss getting back to this guest. Since receiving this review we have followed-up on the matter. We are delighted to see they enjoyed the home!
Chaka B. April 2018
My family loved staying at this home. We all really enjoyed the lake, from the canoe & kayaks, swimming and discovering the newt lizard things. The home was very spacious and there was plenty of room for us all. The hot tub was awesome despite needing a cleaning and there was no espresso machine (just a drip coffee maker) but other than that the home was great! Thank you :)
Al S. January 2018
This home has plenty of space for everyone and can really bring people together with its large dining room table and huge kitchen. The large bay window overlooking the lake was a favorite spot to sneak a nap or read. Being able to enjoy the lake was a true treat and we'll be back.
Cynthia & Michael J. December 2017
The View from the back deck is unbelievable it’s very beautiful.
Michael S. September 2017
We thouroughly enjoyed our stay, only problem, too short
Tami T. September 2017
It really is a beautiful location. Loved the view, the lake, the road for early morning walks... The house is spacious, great kitchen, the deck was a great place for a nap! It was a lovely place for our family.
Sue P. September 2017
Loved the house and the location. Kayaks and canoe were a plus. Weather was perfect! We are booking again for next year. Hopefully by next year the hot tub will be working. Looking forward to next year!!!! Or before;)

We are delighted to see this guest enjoyed their stay and want to apologize for the lack of hot tub. The parts have been ordered for repair and will be installed as soon as they arrive. Thank you!
James B. July 2017
We loved the house, just hope they fix the hot tub.
Pamela J. H. July 2017
We enjoyed the house. Loved the location on the lake. Our adult kids used the kayaks. Our son had good luck bass fishing. What more do you want?
Andrea C. July 2017
The house was perfect for our families, there are 7 of us from WA and NV. It was a fabulous meeting place for our other Mercer Lake families to visit too. Florence is close enough but I rarely left the lake.
David M. July 2017
This home is a peaceful retreat. In summer, the lake, dock and water toys entertained our multi-generatiosnal group completely.
Emma F. May 2017
We had a wonderful time at the house! We loved swimming in the lake, kayaking, relaxing in the hot tub and visiting the beach! Thanks for a great stay!
Pat C. May 2017
We had a wonderful time. It was rainy but we still enjoyed the lake and the view is outstanding!
Sherry B. May 2017
So relaxing.
John T. May 2017
Had a great time for my birthday. Memories were made that I will cherish forever
Glenn H. May 2017
The house is on a peninsula in the lake and has a view of part of the lake (a large lake with several fingers) and a tree covered, one thousand foot (?) hillside that makes you think you are in the wilderness. One house, at the very top of the hill, brings you back to reality.
John A. April 2017
Every thing was good. Nothing at all to complain about.
Gertrude B. March 2017
Our stay was perfect for the occasion.
Linda A. February 2017
We were there the end of Feb., so it was probably the down time but my husband & I found it to be very peaceful & romantic. There were no bright lights on @ night so star watching, while in the hot tub was our favorite activity.
