Mercer Wisconsin, “Loon Capital of the World”

A beautiful, spacious lakefront home nestled in the natural glory of the scenic Northwoods. Winter or Summer, you'll find a peaceful, private paradise at... The Deer House.

Summer Fishing off of Spider Lake and activities for the entire family....
In the summer, you'll love the cool, clean water of the 350 acre Spider Lake. Fish off the pier, or head out on the lake to hunt for the abundant northern pike, walleye, muskie, bass and panfish.

Winters are full of Snowmobiling, Skiing, and Ice Fishing....
The snow in Mercer is deep and the lodge is connected to the extensive Iron County snowmobile trail system. You can bring your sled for hours of fun, or rent one in town. It's only a short hop to the fantastic skiing and snowboarding in the extensive Gogebic Range

This private, family-owned vacation home is perfect for fishing and snowmobiling on Spider Lake at the Deer House in Mercer Wisconsin


Spider Lake is a 350 acre lake with depths up to 60 feet; one of the largest lakes in the area. Go canoeing down the Turtle River, or take long walks through the cool forest and remember the sound of wind whispering through the trees. Relax in the evenings sitting on the deck or in the screen porch overlooking the lake and listen to the loons calling.
