Tower cabin description
Our summer home is on one of Minnesota's largest and most beautiful lakes with countless islands, bays, and inlets, and hundreds of miles of shoreline. The location is the perfect combination of amenities in the middle of a vast forest wilderness. National Geographic has rated Vermilion as one of the top ten most scenic lakes in the United States.
The architect-designed cabin faces northwest, so you can watch the sunset every day through floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room. And you can see the stars at night from the queen bed in the master bedroom. Relax and enjoy the outdoors--lake, trees, birds, loons, maybe an eagle, and sun--from dock or deck. And get out on the water for even more spectacular lake views and some fishing! Vermilion is a good lake for Walleyes, Bass, and Muskies.
It's ideal for a family vacation, a family reunion, time with friends. The cabin has comfortable furniture--sofa, loveseat, and 2 recliners--with seating for 6 at dining tables in the kitchen and in the three-season screened porch. Three bedrooms--one with a queen bed, other beds are twin size. Bath has a shower (no tub). All rooms are on one floor. We provide linens, towels, basic cooking utensils and supplies, toiletries, and laundry detergent.
A canoe with paddles is available for your use as well as a 16 ft fishing boat. Bring your own boat if you like; a public landing and marina are nearby. Boat rental and boat tours are also available on the lake. Life jackets are provided. Cell phone reception is limited to ATT or T-Mobile, so please bring a phone card for long-distance calls if needed.
Dine at nearby restaurants or Fortune Bay casino/resort, or take a scenic drive to Ely for dining, art galleries, shopping, outfitters, hiking in Superior National Forest, summer theater, International Wolf Center, North American Bear Center, movies, etc.

Perfect up north getaway
Perfect up north getaway
This cabin was wonderful. It had everything you could possibly need or want. We had 6 adults stay here and we were very comfortable. It is obvious the owners take great care of this cabin. They were very nice to deal with as well. We hope to return next year.

We were completely satisfied renting this cabin. The cabin was clean, and was well organized with books, games, etc. The owners were excellent to respond to requests for information on things to do. The cabin was supplied with good tools and utilities in the kitchen. Restaurants and shopping, were close. Definitely would recommend to friends.
