The cabin is situated on the east end of Black Bay on Lake Vermilion, Minnesota., and is surrounded by state forest or undeveloped property. The exterior of the cabin features log siding on the main and second floors. On the lower level it features fieldstone stone work across the entire lake side of the cabin.

Why Michael C. Wussow chose Cook

I choose to build the Blue Heron Lodge because I wanted to have an environment that was completely surrounded by nature. A place that was quiet, I could go an explore, and was beautiful. I choose to combine this fantastic natural setting with a home that had all the modern amenities that anyone would need. It is a place that allows me to “work from home” one minute and the next minute be on vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Mike -



We really enjoyed our stay at Blue Heron Lodge this past weekend. The weather was PERFECT (what a treat!) We got the kayaks out and just enjoyed hanging out on the deck after dark. A campfire would have made the weekend even better, but we understand there's a fire ban (saw the planes patrolling too).



Thanks for sharing your beautiful property with us.

Very nice place

  • 4 of 5

Had 23 people gather for family reunion. Very roomy house with many great features. The house is not air conditioned so it got a little warm during the day but cooled off nice at night. Had a great time being right on the lake.

We had a great stay with friends at Lake Vermillion.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Lake Vermillion in early June. The weather was terrific. Fishing was great for the kids and adults. The bay is perfect for kayaking as there is very little boat traffic. The view is beautiful. The house is large with plenty of space for the 16 of us. The house has many wonderful amenities, but some we were not able to use. The house does require some maintenance. Overall, our stay was quite relaxing.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very welcoming! Our group had a amazing time! It was very spacious as we had a group of 20. There were a couple of minor damages on our arrival, but I’m sure the owner meant to give us the best hospitality as possible. Everyone had enough space to move about and sleep. Booking with Michael was very easy and very very comfortable to do so. Any help that we needed, he was very prompt and responsive. I loved it here and will be booking again soon!!

  • 5 of 5

We booked a getaway for my 40th birthday and it couldn’t have gone better. We comfortably fit 7 families with lots of kids. The property was just as described. We went for relaxing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, and partying and this Home fit it all!

Amazing place to create memories with family.

  • 4 of 5

Pros

We stayed 3 nights the 1st week in 2018. It was cold but we didn't need the out side. We had everything we needed inside the lodge. The space and amenities allowed for all 18 of us to spread out and create small memories or all come together in the game room or living room with amazing views of the lake. 7 bedrooms and a Loft on 3 different levels provided personal space of each of the 6 couples and their kids to call their own. The kitchen and common areas easily accommodated many cooks in the kitchen. We all loved it. Having TVs and a large projection TV in the common area only (not in the bedrooms) actually caused people to gather -vs- isolate themselves. Large comfortable furniture in a huge living room with vaulted ceilings and windows out to the lake, allowing you to be near all the action but still quite enough to read or have small conversations. Up North in Minnesota with -35 F outside temperatures life can be challenging but with a southern exposure and all those windows with in-floor heat it was pretty comfortable. At night when the sun went down we did use the provided room heaters to take the bite off. A large Game Room with a Wet Bar, Projection TV for NFL Playoffs, Pool, Darts, Air Hockey, and Foose Ball, what more could you ask for.

Cons

Winter in Minnesota means Snow and Ice on the roads. We did need 4-Wheel Drive Vehicles to get to remote lodge location. 2 miles of very steep hills (up and down) with twists and turns made it a little unnerving. GO SLOW! 4-Wheel Drive works good for driving. Stopping is another story. Approached a downward hill a little too fast and slid off the road/trail and into a tree. The Hot Water System needs to be improved. Basic showers for adults or baths for children had to be spaced way out and were almost impossible. Not much chance of actually using the Jacuzzi Tubs. There is an outside Hot Tub that we did use but did I mention the -35 degree F outside temps?

All-In-All it is about creating memories. We did that and won't forget this New Years trip.
