About the Property

Unique private cottage just 35ft.from the shore. Head of the Lakes Bay

The charm of the vintage 1950’s cottage shines with hand-craftmanship and all of the comforts of modern living. (4 person capacity)

It takes you back to a simpler time and place to breathe, relax and enjoy the ones you love. It is your private piece of paradise.

The interior features new knotty pine walls, new hand laid Australian cedar hardwood floors and carpet. The kitchen was remodeled , including a side by side refrigerator, stove top, M/W, countertop oven, coffee maker, blender, toaster, pots, pans, dishes, glassware, utensils and kettle BBQ (BYO charcoal). The bathroom is remodeled, includes a new shower. One bedroom has a queen bed the other has three twins. The open floor plan including the living room, dining area and kitchen is designed with large picture windows that offer spectacular views of the lake. All linens are provided including bath towels, sheets and blankets (Guests provide their own beach towels.)

The cottage shore has a beach that is perfect for young children. It is sandy, shallow, and crystal clear, just steps from the cottage. The cottage is set on a beautiful wooded lot 35 feet from the water with 90 feet of private lake shore. The lawn gently slopes to the beach, perfect for lawn games. The entrance side of the cabin has a deck with views of the lake.

The boathouse has a second story deck overlooking the water with a panoramic open water view. It is a great place to relax at sun set, sitting on the Adirondack chairs with a cool drink in hand. Evenings can be spent around the lakeside campfire circle, listening to the loons. Free firewood available.

There is a private dock and lift (electrical available) for your boat to get going anytime with ease. Bring your fishing gear, water-skis, wakeboards, tubes. We have two free kayaks for you to explore the 365 islands and wildlife.

There are places nearby to rent watercraft and fishing guides, Spring Bay Resort 218-666-5607 and Moosebirds 218-666-2627. The public landing is adjacent to The Landing Bar and Restaurant (3096 Vermilion Drive, Cook, MN 55723) less than a mile down the road from the cottage.

Caroline’s Cottage is a great location for this lake. It is easy to get to and from the main road. You can walk down to Moosebirds Store for bait, ice cream cones, coffee, sundries, souvenirs, and boat gas or boat rental. Spring Bay Resort offers boat rental and fishing guides. The Landing Restaurant is on the water just a few steps up the road next to the Public Boat Launch. On the main road to Cook there is a relaxing nine hole, par 36, golf course or for the golf enthusiast try The Wilderness golf course at Fortune Bay Casino.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: When David and I first married we had a dream of owning a cabin on Lake Vermilion. I grew up canoeing in the Boundary Waters National Park and Vermilion borders this park. In 1995 we bought island property on Vermilion and have raised our family enjoying the summers on Lake Vermilion. The time we spend in this magical place have created memories that have bonded us together in a way that would not have happened in Minneapolis. The beauty of this place never ceases to take my breath away. My muscles relax the minute we see the water. In 2012 we bought the cutest vintage 1950's cabin on the mainland and named it Caroline's Cottage. It has been lovingly restored with hand-craftmandhsip. We want to share the Vermilion experience with you! We want you to feel like it is your own retreat and to offer you a place to create memories you will not forget, year after year. David, Marci, Lauren, Ellen and Caroline

Why the Owner Chose Cook, MN, USA:
Lake Vermilion is one of the most beautiful lakes in the nation, bordering the Boundary Waters Canoe Wilderness. It has 365 islands, wildlife and miles of undeveloped shores to explore. Amazing fishing lake too!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Location is fabulous, wide open view of the lake but also convenient. Boat rentals and fishing guides in our bay at Spring Bay Resort 218-666-5607 and Moosebirds 218-666-2627. Moosebirds also has bait, gas, ice cream, sundries... The public landing is one bay over next to The Landing restaurant and bar (Gas and boat dock at restaurant). Caroline's Cottage is right next door to vrbo cabin 217602
