A Snowmobiler Delight - The Great Northern Motel with a Fresh Attitude and Look
Something old is new again - this old cliche may be the perfect description for the Great Northern Motel in Mercer, Wis. The 25-year old motel was reborn under the new management of Eric and Becky Behnke last June. The couple successfully managed the Timberline Inn in Manitowish Waters and last year Eric saw that the Great Northern Motel in the neighboring town of Mercer was closed.
