Why Michael C. Wussow chose Lake Vermilion

I choose to build the Eagles Nest Cabin 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

I am still basking in the afterglow of staying at your Eagle’s Nest. It was wonderful…



We all slipped into “another dimension” as we arrived. It was grand. Thank you for allowing us to use the paddleboat & canoe. We used them both and for me a highlight was the beautiful little trail off the point. Many mushrooms & flowers still bloomed and the eagle sightings were plentiful, as were the loons.



You seem to have thought of everything in the house and I truly appreciated the hot tub and deck-just perfect. Felt secluded and pampered-simultaneously! The night sky was a sight to behold and we all left feeling nourished by our time in nature & comfort.



I would definitely return again. Thank you so much for opening it up to us-we truly appreciated it’s beauty and spirit.

Beautiful home on Black Bay of Lake Vermillion

  • 5 of 5

We just finished spending a great week at the Eagle's Nest property. It is a beautiful place and we had a wonderful time, even when the weather didn't cooperate at times. I'd highly recommend that you check it out!

Fantastic view and beautiful deck

  • 4 of 5

Love this place. Kids had a blast caught Sunny's and a big Nirthern on the dock. The view comes at a price of some steps to get to the Lake and a hilly driveway. Do not tow your boat into the place. Launch it first at the public launch. Towing an empty trailer in is fine. The house is absolutely fantastic. Deck hot tub is really fun.

Fantastic View

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for a week. The views and the fishing were good. We enjoyed every minute we were there. The home was very clean and well kept. The property was quiet and peaceful. We didn't have the best weather but with the views you still couldn't beat it.

Thumbs up!

Amazing winter getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Three couples called the Eagle's Nest home for an amazing winter weekend getaway! The cabin and grounds are absolutely beautiful. The only other cabin that we could see was the Blue Heron which is owned by Michael as well. I've never been to this area, but I was blown away by the absolute pure beauty, all the while staying in a comfortable upscale cabin! The terrain of this area is more hilly than I realized, so I would highly recommend a truck or 4x4 if coming, especially in the winter. I did make it up the hill to the cabin, but it took several long runs!!

We really enjoyed the hot tub and fireplace while looking out over an absolutely breathtaking winter scene. The area is FULL of state and federal lands to explore, although we only had time/energy to do that one day.

I would highly recommend this place!! The owner was easy to work. We'll be back, either to the Eagle's Nest or the Blue Heron.
