Cook cabin description

Welcome to Diamond Cove, your retreat on the shores of beautiful Lake Vermilion. Lake Vermilion is a marvelous fishing lake with northern pike, walleye, large and small-mouthed bass, sunfish, perch and muskie. It runs 40 miles from Cook to Tower with over 1200 miles of shoreline and 365 islands. Bring your fishing gear, waterskis, wakeboards, tubes or whatever 'floats your boat' as summer water temperatures are normally in the 70's. If you're a water person, this is the place for you. This is as close as you come to a 'golden pond' experience.

Diamond Cove is a rustic log cabin featuring original square hewn logs throughout the interior with plenty of living space. This is a home, not a resort cabin. You will find it cozy and inviting with all the charm of the north woods and all the conveniences of modern living, including WiFi. So you can keep in touch with work if you have to, or if you prefer, just send email updates and photos of your fantastic vacation to jealous friends and co-workers (maybe not your boss).

Just 30 feet from the water's edge, nestled on a lovely wooded lot, you will find yourself face-to-face with the majesty of nature every day at Diamond Cove. Wake up and enjoy the spectacular view with your morning coffee. Eager fishermen can be off and running at the crack of dawn with their boat ready to go in the wet boathouse or the slip. If you aren't using the slip for a second boat, you might want to use it as a protected wading pool for little ones.

Diamond Cove is great for a large family, or two small ones. The sleeping porch is open to the family room, but can be closed off for privacy at night.

Kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, dishes, glassware, utensils, toaster, coffee maker, blender, microwave. Family room has games, books and videos for our guests to use.

Diamond Cove is in a fantastic location for this lake. It is easily accessible by road and is near the Moosebirds store and The Landing Restaurant. Our shoreline is rock and sand without weeds, which makes it nice for swimming. Bring your own firewood for a bonfire lakeside and listen to the loons. You'll never forget the time you spend here.

No boat rental is available with this property. Rental of fishing boats or pontoon boats can be arranged through Moosebirds 218-666-2627 or Spring Bay Resort 218-666-5607. Both businesses are right in our bay. Please call them directly for availability. They sell out quickly.

Diamond Cove is right next door to vrbo cabin 428580.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                              The tranquility, proximity to the water, there's nothing like the lake. The aroma of cedar trees warm in the sun stays fresh in your memory long after you have gone.
