Choose Pine Noel

Pine Noel - secluded, quiet, yet still within walking distance of the town, Mercer. Our five cabins are nestled among towering pines with plenty of grassy area for relaxing in the sun. Linens are furnished and an aluminum boat is provided with each cabin rental. For your cooking pleasure, Weber grills and microwave ovens are included with each cabin.

The grounds are well maintained with several unique features such as a gazebo that's the perfect spot for an afternoon card game or the tee-pee and swing set that will provide young ones with hours of amusement. The lake's sandy bottom slopes gradually, making it ideal for swimming. A horseshoe pit and basketball hoops are great fun, as well.



The Mercer area is home to many species of birds and animals. The resort and the many local state parks offer rare sites of eagles, osprey, ruffled grouse, merlins and of course, loons. Sit back in the comfort of your own cabin and watch the deer feed right from the our feeding station. If fishing is your sport, the lake is home to an abundancy of musky, walleye, bass, northern pike, and panfish.
