Come to beautiful Lake Vermilion and enjoy one of the ten most beautiful lakes in the world! There are over 290 miles of shoreline, mostly glacial rock with stately evergreens, and 365 unique islands on this pristine northern Minnesota lake. In the summer and fall you can explore the lake on our pontoon boat, fishing boat, row boat, or kayaks (or rent a canoe or jet skies). World-class golf is available at 3 courses within 25 miles of the cabin (The Quarry, The Legends, and Wilderness). In the winter months, the lake is perfect for snow shoeing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling or ice-fishing, and downhill skiing at Giants Ridge is only 30 minutes away.
Our cabin is right next to miles of state park so the bay is quiet and undeveloped; we share it with loons and hummingbirds. The cabin sits on a rise overlooking Big Bay and Ely Island. The vista looking east takes in several smaller islands. McKinley Park, with its sandy beach, boat launch, and playground, is less than a mile down the road. The popular Northwood's town of Ely is just 20 minutes away. This cabin is perfectly situated for a quiet romantic getaway, a family retreat, or a weekend with friends.
The cabin was built in the 1950s and was remodeled 8 years ago. The kitchen is new and the main living area is vaulted to provide a more panoramic view of the lake. There is a deck attached to the cabin which overlooks the lake, and a larger deck sitting right over the water. We have a wood-burning fireplace in the main living area and a gas fireplace in the walkout level, as well as a fire pit outside. There is a beautiful spot for a hammock and a side yard perfect for yard games.

About the owner: We bought this cabin in 2000 and just love it! Over the years, we have had family reunions, quiet getaways, and weekends with friends. The cabin is perfect for everyone. One of our daughters prefers to swim off the dock, run on the trials, kayak, ride the pontoon and camp. Our other daughter loves to read so she settles on the couch by the fireplace or on the deck with her book. Our grandson loves to feed the deer, the ducks and the birds, take boat rides, and go to McKinley Park. By early evening, we all sit on the deck for appetizers, drinks and stories before dinner. By the end of the day, we quiet down with Scrabble, card games or a good book.
Why the Owner Chose Tower: Tower is a quaint northern Minnesota town with a few shops, municipal playground, train museum and friendly people. But, the real gem of this location is The Lake!
