Welcome to PIne Forest Lodge
Welcome to Pine Forest Lodge in Mercer Wisconsin. You'll find a unique combination of privacy and either modern or rustic cabins with all the conveniences of home. Here you will find a 1/2 mile of lake frontage and 40 acres of land attached to our resort for your recreation. You won't find that anywhere else in the beautiful Northwoods of Wisconsin. We are open May 1 through October, but other months our resort will have at least one cabin open. (Call for information.) So preferred mode of communication year round is via e-mail: email@example.com.
We have 9 cabins to choose from. Our modern or rustic cabins are fully equipped with blankets, professionally-cleaned linens, pillows, a fully-stocked kitchen, dish towels and soap, stove/ovens, refrigerators, microwaves, toasters, coffee makers and bathrooms with either showers or tubs. Cedar and Birch have rock fireplaces, Maple and Ironwood have gas fireplaces. A mix of log cabins and more modern homes gives a perfect choice for every taste. Just bring your bath towels and bath soaps. There is an excellent grocery store in our town, only 3.5 miles away.
We are much like a family camp, guiding many outings (if requested), providing lessons and offering educational information (when wanted). Enjoy the horse shoe pit, the campfire pit, basketball court, shuffleboard, croquet and hammocks. The lodge has a bar, piano, foosball table, library, games and a full-liquor license for our guests' pleasure. For everyone's pleasure, we also do not allow fireworks, guns, loud music, etc. Please, no dogs that bark a lot.
(No campers or RV's are allowed to stay overnight on the resort property.)
Reservations/deposits/cancellations: Its best to call for reservations at 715-476-2241. It can also be done by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Our cell service here and often during the off season is not dependable. So leaving a message on our home phone is usually best. We’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Receiving a text regarding a reservation is most difficult and least likely to get a reply. Weird - we know, but in a way that’s a good thing about the north woods.
With new reservations we ask for a deposit within 10 days. Returning customers have until the end of the year to send deposits. We still only take checks and cash for payments.
Cancellations: Deposits are not returned until/if and when we are able to get the cabin rented out again. If we do not get enough time to re-rent the cabin, customers are expected to make good on our losses (pay the balance due). We have a short busy season and cannot afford to leave cabins open. If you cancel and do not pay the balance due and we lose out on a rental because of it, then if you wish to come back, you will have to pay the entire bill in full upon our acceptance of your reservation. If you cancel and we are able to rent the cabin out at full price, we will refund your entire deposit.
Cleaning Fees?: We do not charge extra cleaning fees as many rental places now do, but when there is an extraordinary mess we will impose an extra charge if the cabin is left that way in the future.
With only the minimum 2 day rental (instead of 3+ days) we add a $40 cleaning fee in the off-season. We reserve the right to charge extra fees if the cabin is a huge mess or if there has been damage.
Virus Cleaning: Since there are some concerns, we thought we would confirm that we will be open this spring (starting May sometime), summer and fall (until Dec.), unless prohibited by law. All cabins have been and will continue to be wiped down AND FOGGED with a bleach and/or anti-virus cleaning solution after every use. We have purchased a fogger, which will be used to disinfect the spaces, onto surfaces, etc. So please be assured that we will do everything we can to keep the virus from spreading. Even though no one, and no company can guarantee that they will be completely virus-free, we will do everything in our power to keep the virus from spreading. Thank you for understanding.
