Mercer Lake:

Lake access - The resort across the road is for resort guests however if you rent a pontoon boat for 150.00 you get all day access to the resort amenities including a swimming area, beach front, water trampoline.. They also have other water toy rental options. If you bring your own boat ther is a public boat lauch just before the the resort, Take Mercer lake road just a couple hundred feet to Bayberry Ln., turn left then imediatly right onto Archer Ln., ramp is streight ahead.

Mercer is a good sized lake listed at 341acres on the north side of Florence. Great largemouth bass fishing, yellow perch, bullhead catfish, seasonally stocked rainbow trout and some sunfish as well..

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.

What’s nearby:

This home is a quick drive from multiple access points to the Oregon Dunes and ocean beaches including the popular access just out South Jetty Road. The charming Old Town section of the city 
is filled with lovely shops, cafes, galleries, and restaurants. You will also be minutes from numerous trailheads for hiking or mountain biking. The coastal forests flourishing in Douglas fir and Sitka spruce extend nearly to the Ocean. Some trails wind up, over, and through sand dunes, offering hikers the opportunity to experience the unique natural wonders of this area. Take a scenic drive up Hwy 101 to Heceta Head Lighthouse where free tours are offered daily. Get your adrenalin flowing on a nearby dune buggy tour or with an ATV rental, or go crabbing from the Siuslaw Bay public fishing pier at the end of South Jetty road where crabbing is excellent from late spring until the fresh water from winter rains force the crabs out to the ocean.

Incredible Views
5/5 stars
Otter Banks at Mercer Lake was all that we had hoped for our family getaway. This home is amazing, views are incredible, plenty of space for all of us to spread out and the kitchen is well stocked. We even ventured out in the kayaks one not so cold morning even though it was November. Emily was great to work with and when we requested extra towels they were there in a jiffy and plenty of them. My only suggestion would be to add a few cozy throw blankets in the living room to cuddle up with and a few extra blankets in the closest for the beds for those of us who like to sleep in a cooler room.

Peaceful and Perfect
5/5 stars
Both with your welcoming and beautiful home and serene lake and view, Otter Banks provided the peaceful respite as well as perfect separation of space our three generations needed. We brought our canoe and also found the provided kayaks to be a great hit with the 8 yr old twins and adults alike. The boys spent quiet hours fishing off the dock and caught three different species of fish! We all enjoyed the retro video games, board games and book choices in the evening. And as soccer fans, being able to get the Timbers game one evening was a real hit as we all fit on the large curved couch on the upper level. Otter Banks is a home to cherish!

Otter Banks heaven!
5/5 stars
This was by far the nicest rental we have ever stayed in. Spotlessly clean and so well-laid out, that we had rooms and privacy for everyone. The view from the living areas are so peaceful, and we enjoyed the large kitchen and luxurious bathrooms so much! This property is the perfect location for visiting the coastline attractions and the town of Florence is a charm in itself. Highly recommend Otter banks!

Pure Joy
5/5 stars
Though we encountered a rocky start, having not received the door code upon arrival; then not being able to contact anyone to help, the owner was kind enough to reach out through the Ring doorbell and allow us access into the home. That being said, once inside, the home was everything as listed on the website. Clean, beautiful lake view and comfortably appointed. It was nice to discover there were lake towels on hand and an oblong outdoor dining table, for eating outside, under the garage deck. Also, extra deck chairs for lakeside seating. The kayaks, paddle board and peddle boat were all put to use. This was our first time at Otter Banks. And I'm certain, not our last. It was pure joy.

The best place ever!
5/5 stars
This is our 4th year at your property, Otter Banks. We have gathered here since 2019 (we took a year and tried something new in 2021…we’ll never do that again!) with 3 families from Portland, Ashland and Sacramento. Our kids have grown up here and bonded over dock time, lake time, and puzzles every year. We can’t thank you enough for hosting us and opening up your home so we can make memories together. New this year: We love the arcade game table! And the downstairs living room table lifts….who knew?! We just learned that this year, and our puzzlers were so happy. The appliances are fantastic—thanks for having a popcorn maker, rice cooker, and utensils. We couldn’t find the guest book this time, but loved having kayaks and SUP’s available for those glassy morning paddles. We have all of that gear, and it’s so relaxing not to have to haul it here! Also appreciated the extra sheets and pillows and blankets. Since we couldn’t find the guest book, we’ll tell you that we saw 3 otters on this trip! :) About half mile up the road on a walk, we saw them in the lake. Thanks again!! We love it here!

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. While the reason for our visit was due to the loss of a loved one, we were able to be in close proximity of family. We look forward to another visit! Thank you again!
