Tower house description

Beautiful get-away to the northwoods! Updated, year-round vacation home on Lake Vermilion--a premier north Minnesota lake on the edge of the famous Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA). Perfect for family vacations, fishing and snowmobile groups, or people just wanting to get away for that relaxing, quiet escape up north!

In the winter, we offer weekend rates. Please ask for more details. There is easy access to miles of northwoods snowmobile trails in the woods or on the lake. Snowshoe, cross-country or downhill skiing, and nature hiking trails are nearby also. Ice fishing house rental and guided ice fishing trips are available-phone numbers provided for you. Great walleye ice fishing and panfish/crappie ice fishing nearby--directions and information provided for both of these. Fortune Bay Casino is four miles away. Giants Ridge downhill and cross-country skiing is close. A gas fireplace in the living room next to the couch awaits! There is also a jacuzzi tub and sauna in the house. Propane furnace heated house in the winter.

This house features knotty pine ceilings and walls throughout, a vaulted living room ceiling, and a large deck overlooking the yard and water off both the kitchen and living room areas with a weber grill. New Dish Satellite TV. Beautiful sunsets seen from deck.

This house sleeps 8 to 9 people. There are two bedrooms on the main floor. The master bedroom contains a queen bed. The second bedroom on the main floor contains a full sized bed with a bunk bed over the top of it along with an extra mattress which can be used on the floor for sleeping. The living room on the main floor has a new fold out couch plus a second couch. In the walk-out style basement there are four beds- a queen, two fulls, and a single bed.

There is air conditioning in the house for those hot summer days and also a jacuzzi tub, sauna, and newer appliances throughout the house. This property offers plenty of space in the house and yard with rock landscaping, trees on both sides of the yard for privacy and that northwoods feel, a level shoreline area, campfire area by the water, and private dock!

There is a summer guest cabin available closeby to help accomodate larger groups also if you are interested in renting the guest cabin separately.

Great walleye, musky, bass, northern fishing year round and excellent crappie fishing very nearby in September/October and also in the winter on the ice. This house is on the Pike Bay/Pike River Inlet of Lake Vermilion, a desirable part of the lake on the southeast portion near Tower

Lake Vermilion, much of it undeveloped, is in the Superior National Forest and is on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. It has been sited as one of the '10 most scenic lakes in the U.S.'--Sportsman's Connection Fishing Map Guide.

Alongside nature, there are several lakeside restaurants. It is a 40,557 acre, 27 mile long lake with 360 islands and several bays. In the winter, several groomed snowmobile, snowshoe, or cross country ski trails are throughout the woods and on the lake. In the summer, this lake is big enough so that even on a Saturday afternoon, boat traffic is often light so you feel your on a quiet lake out there fishing, boating, or sitting on the beach!

In addition to the natural scenery, this lake is one of Minnesota's premier fisheries and lake vacation destinations.
The fishing is excellent - musky, walleye, northern, bass, and crappie. 5000 musky stocked annually since 1987 and aggressive walleye stocking programs also. A pro fishing guide is in the area for year round spring through winter fishing if you are interested. Information on good fishing spots is at the house also. Good crappie fishing nearby in the fall! Ice Fishing House rental/Boat rental/Boat Launch available nearby. Canoe and paddles available.

Fortune Bay Resort with Golf and Casino is four miles away as well as many other golf courses in the area. I have information on how to get to the trails/beaches.

This vacation house is winterized with heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer. It sleeps 8 to 10 people. Cool sleeping during those hot summer nights available with A/C on main floor and cool sleeping in the walk-out basement.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2003

                          About the owner: Welcome to our house on Lake Vermilion! This has been a perfect getaway for our family for long quiet weekends, large family gatherings, fishing trips, and entertaining friends over the years. We love to go up north to fish, relax, go on walks with the dogs, snowmobile, swim, or sit around the campfire. We live a busy life in the cities and love to get up north once in a while to get away. We hope you enjoy your vacation up north!

                          Why the Owner Chose Tower:
                          We chose Lake Vermilion because its a beautiful lake with that boundary waters feel. Excellent fishing, glacial rock everywhere, islands, not much boat traffic. Next to this wilderness type setting, there are restaurants, sports bars, shops, wildlife museums--plenty to do besides just being on the lake.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The area by this house has wildlife everywhere--birds, deer, loons, beavers, and an occasional eagle. The house is on a private road as well which is great for walks!
