Be sure to visit the Sudan Iron Mine. It was the first iron mine in Minnesota and its railroad delivered the ore to Two Harbors for loading on ore boats. It is now a museum and a science laboratory studying sub atomic particles.
Year Purchased: 1990
About the owner: I am retired from home construction and my wife from nursing. We live in Roseville near Saint Paul, MN. We love our stays at Lake Vermilion where we built Jackrabbit Island Cabin on weekends starting in 1991. We are using the cabin less since our daughter moved to California and think VRBO is a good way to keep it available without selling it. I like to fish Lake Vermilion and the grand kids swim off the dock and like to be dragged around on water skis or a raft. In the winter we do volunteer work in Guatemala where we have another home that we also rent through VRBO while we are in Minnesota. My son James, who is a teacher is Saint Paul, is doing the managing and renting of jackrabbit Island.
Why the Owner Chose Tower, MN, USA:
We bought this place because we wanted very clean water and enough land to be alone. I love to be able to catch a fish before breakfast and go out again in the evening. No neighbors stroll over to gab and no loud parties or construction across the street, just birds, squirrels, beaver, and deer. I am afraid fox got the jackrabbits during the winter. ( Let us know if you see any jackrabbits.)
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The nice thing about Lake Vermilion is that there are so many things to do beside fishing and boating. All the facitities of Fortune Bay Casino are 10 minutes away by boat but if you want to be alone this is the special place. We love campfires in the evening, walks on the trails, and just sitting on the dock watching the lake and the sky. We sit and read in the screen house a lot. We paddle the canoe around the island for exercise. I also take the canoe over to Trout Lake in the boundary waters once in a while.
