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!
