About the Property

2 bedroom lakeshore cabin with space and privacy

It's perfect for a family vacation, for a group of fishermen, or for retired grandparents who'd like to introduce their grandkids to the wonder of Lake Vermilion. We've met many great people during our first three years -- and would be pleased to welcome you to the Guest Cabin on our Birch Point property in 2016.

With 290 feet of frontage, you'll have quite a bit of lakeshore all to yourselves. We've left 40 feet of woods undisturbed on each side to provide privacy.

The Guest Cabin is set back 120 feet with ample open space shaded by mature trees for your campfire, lawn games or lawn chair in the shade. The gentle slope to the lake makes the walk easy for youngsters and retired folks (like us!).

The 800 sq. foot cabin has two large bedrooms. One bedroom has two twin beds and one has a queen and a twin, bringing the sleeping capacity to 4 or 5 persons.

The entire cabin -- inside and out -- has been renovated over the last two years. When you visit this summer, you'll find a new exterior, bath fixtures, and kitchen appliances. Plus, we've added a clothes washer/dryer, a dishwasher, a larger boat lift, and air conditioning -- the items most requested by our guests.

Lake Vermilion is one of Minnesota’s largest and most beautiful lakes. Its 365 islands, countless bays and points, and hundreds of miles of shoreline are waiting to be explored. Our NW facing property allows you to experience its spectacular sunsets from your private dock.

Excellent walleye fishing right off the dock through early June. Several smallmouth bass reside under the dock all year. Easy for kids to catch and release.

We live on the property year round in a log home you may see in some of the pictures. We are available 24 hours a day to attend to your needs, answer any questions you might have, or to fix anything that might go wrong. But we promise to stay in the background and not disturb your full use of the entire property.

Please check out the descriptions and pictures of this private, peaceful cabin property below. For more complete info, including 'pending' reservations, visit our website by googling 'Lovgren's Guest Cabin' or using the link in the 'Owner Info' tab below. We are proud of it and would love to share it with you this summer.

Your hosts, Kathy and Jeff Lovgren

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

Why the Owner Chose Tower, MN, USA:
When we purchased our Lake Vermilion property in 1987, the cabin was already there. In the early years, it served as a quiet gathering place while we planned our retirement years in the North Country. During the 1990s, we rented it to many families – sometime for a week, sometimes for the season. In 2000, its role changed. We retired to Lake Vermilion and lived in the “guest cabin” ourselves year round while we built our new log home on the same property. But now it’s time for our guest cabin to return to its past. In 2013, we began renting our Guest Cabin to a new group of families so they, too, can experience a week’s vacation on our great lake.
