With a boat, you can poke around the long Dowell and Dahlin arms and many small coves and points around the lake. There are standing and fallen trees around the shoreline, as well as a fair number of docks, that add to the potential cover for bass and panfish.

Great house to explore the area from
5/5 stars
We had a great time in this house. It had everything we needed to explore the local area and we loved coming in from a day out to soak in the hot tub. The bedrooms having blackout blinds was a bonus for our children and these light summer evenings. We also loved that we could access Mercer Lake via a five minute walk down the road.

Comfortable stay
5/5 stars
The house was clean, and accommodating. The Hot Tub was perfect, we have stayed places where the chlorine levels were enough to eat your skin, and this was not the case at all. The neighborhood was quiet, with the exception of the mad squirrel that enjoyed throwing pine cones, and scolding us for interrupting her fall gathering. 10/10 highly recommend staying here.

Fun in the Forest with Family!
5/5 stars
This was an amazing Family adventure on the coast of Oregon, where the Forest meets the Sea..... This house is so cute and cozy, perfect for our small family. It also was dog friendly so we got to bring the pooch. The house is small yet elegant and was very clean. It is right by a lake and we put in our paddle board one day to have some fun in the lake. The ocean is right by us as well along with sand dunes for tons of fun on the coast. The beds where comfy and soft pillows. The only downer was the bathroom did not have a fan, and we all had to share the same bathroom...maybe some mirrors would be good in the master bedroom for me, (mom) to get ready so I don't take over the bathroom. Our family loved bringing the dog and exploring, everything around us was very dog friendly and the kiddo had so much fun in the ocean and also coming back to the house to warm up in the hot tub. We all loved the hot tub, perfect for us to warm up after the chili coastal water. If your looking for a peaceful quiet spot in the forest next to a lake, a short drive to sand dunes and the coast, with a hot tub to boot, this is the place for you! Don't forget to bring the dogs.

Second stay, just as happy.
5/5 stars
This was our second stay and we are just as happy as the first time. It was very clean and the check in was just as easy. We loved staying here the first time as it is secluded a bit and nice and cozy. The added bonus was the hot tub that was not here the first time we stayed. The hot tub is just a little on the smaller side, but a decent hot soak under the stars was very nice. We would recommend this to anyone and will come again in the future.

A wonderful Spring Break home base
4/5 stars
This cottage was a great place to call home for our week long spring break. The hot tub warmed up in a few hours, beds would comfortable, house was warm, and a great location to quickly access attractions. During our stay we rented sand boards, dune buggies, visited the hobbit trail, lighthouse, and Sea Lion caves, and a dune trail horseback ride at C&M stables was the highlight of the trip! Of note, we had cell service at the house and the house didn’t have any information in print. So we had to go back into town as soon as we arrived to access WiFi information.
