About James Husbands

Hello my name is Jim Husbands & I am a retired set decorator from the Motion Picture Industry in Hollywood, California. During my 32 years in the industry married my wife and we moved to Northern Minnesota to raise our children who are now grown and on their own. So it is time to travel and complete that bucket list. My daughter, Taylor, is also my manager for the property, she can answer any questions that you may have.

James Husbands purchased this house in 1992

Why James Husbands chose Tower

We purchased this because my wife's family has a cabin on Pine Island not far our home. We knew it would be a great place to raise our kids.

What makes this house unique

The views of Lake Vermilion are the biggest benefit. The people are wonderful and the seasons are great with all the sports & recreation, it has delighted us as a family!

Awesome Trip

  • 5 of 5

The house was great as it had everything we needed for our 4 night trip. The owner even let us cut up some dead trees for firewood while we were there. House had a great view of Daisy Bay and was very close to excellent fishing. Would definitely stay here again if we come back.

We loved our stay at Daisy Bay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Daisy Bay cabin. The place was in fantastic shape and met all of our needs. Jim was there to greet us at the start of our stay and was more than welcoming. I'd highly recommend staying at Hotel California Daisy Bay!

Seven friends and I stayed at this property and had a great time. Plenty of space inside and out for a large group. The fishing was good and the locals were very helpful.

Great location with easy access. Lots of space.

  • 4 of 5

This was a company outing for my crew and it worked out great. The floor plan works out well and the view from the Decks are awesome. The walk down to the lake is pretty steep but we only made that trip a couple times. The place was clean and well-kept.
