Activities & Amenities
This admirable 7.26-acre hilltop vista and lakefront property nestled between the Dahlin and Dowell arms of Mercer Lake is the ideal coastal setting if you are looking for both ocean views, as well as lakefront property.
Located on a private road this property evokes the privacy and rugged appeal one would be in search of when looking for a piece of land that literally stands above the rest. Roughly 320 feet above sea level the upper landing is the perfect setting for a modest home or cabin where one could take in the pleasant summer coastal sunsets, or settle in next to the woodstove and admire the winter squalls as they pass over the Pacific. During the summer months, there is nothing better than having the ability to buoy up the boat or shove off a kayak on 100' of your own water frontage. Whether your in search of Rainbow trout that populate the depths of Mercer lake, or just in the mood to admire the deer, bear, or bald eagles that can be spotted in some of the more remote corners of the lake you will be right at home.
If the pursuit of big game or fishing is what you are after, feel comforted knowing that you are minutes away from many coastal tributaries including the Siuslaw River that holds a variety of salmon, steelhead, cutthroat trout and many other species of brackish water fish. When September rolls around it is also time to take to the thousands of acres of public land. Comprised of large swaths of Pacific NW rainforests that hold healthy populations of large-bodied Roosevelt elk, Blacktail deer, Black bear and Mountain lion. Upland game hunting for Ruffed grouse and Mountain quail is also available throughout the surrounding coast range.
The city of Florence, which is approx 8.5 miles away has most of the amenities you would find in larger cities including a hospital, large shopping centers, numerous restaurants and the Three Rivers Casino just a couple miles outside of town. Miles of ocean beach can be accessed on either side of the Siuslaw River and is a favorite for beachcombing, ATV riding, kiteboarding, surfing as well as horseback riding.
