Comfy Lake Vermilion Cabin-- Pet-friendly, 3 Bedrooms

Bedrooms 3
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 6 nights


About the property

Looking for a beautiful spot for your lake getaway? This cabin sits on a point overlooking Daisy Bay. With three bedrooms (1 king, 1 full, 1 with 2 twins), and two queen sofa beds (one on a private sleeping porch), it can comfortably sleep up to ten people. The kitchen is fully outfitted. A deck wraps around two sides of the cabin so you can fully appreciate the beautiful view. There's also a lakeside sauna (shared with one other cabin).

You'll want to spend most of your time on the lake, but for those of us who can't quite leave the rest of the world behind, there's cable tv and WiFi. (Please note that the ancient TV pictured has been replaced!)

We have a canoe, a two person kayak, and bikes available for your use.

The driveway can accommodate two boat trailers. Boats can be put in nearby at either Moccasin Point or Greubens Marina.

We do NOT have a fire pit, and do not allow outside fires. There is often a high risk of fire damage, as we are in the woods. We do provide a charcoal grill for outdoor cooking.

There are loads of attractions and activities nearby-- the Vince Shute Bear Sanctuary, the International Wolf Center, Fortune Bay Casino, shopping in Ely, fishing guides, mailboat rides, hiking, tours of the Soudan Mine, and much more.

This cabin is on the same road as our other two rental cabins. The VRBO numbers for those cabins are 809128 and 678588. This cabin is next door to 678588, and one lot away from 809128. If you have a larger group and want to rent more than one cabin, we have special rates.

This cabin is SEASONAL ONLY. It is not available for rent after Sept. 30 or before May 1.

About Sarah Fain

This cabin was purchased by my great-uncle and was left to my grandparents, who then left it to my mom. She added the second story so our many family and friends could visit comfortably. We are excited to celebrate 60 years of fun on Lake Vermilion in 2016!

Sarah Fain purchased this cabin in 1956

Why Sarah Fain chose Tower

We love this cabin because its location is so special. Because it's on a point, the view is expansive-- my favorite view in the whole world.

Great Location on Lake Vermilion!

Our week was incredible. The cabin comfortably slept our family if nine. Beautiful location on Lake Vermilion. We loved the sauna! The new deck offers peaceful views and sounds of the lake! I hope we can return someday!

Beautiful Deck

  • 5 of 5

Six of us spent the past week in this cabin. It has a newly constructed wrap around deck with an excellent view of the lake. Also, a new dock was installed while we were there. The cabin was very comfortable and well stocked with dishes and cookware. The shower had plenty of hot water and strong water pressure. A Mayfly hatch and cold front made the fishing a challenge, but overall it was a great vacation and we will likely stay here again.

Four out of five stars. We enjoyed our stay.

  • 4 of 5

Accommodations were great - new deck with a great view of the lake. The detached sauna was a welcome relief. One bathroom was a challenge for 7 guys. The kitchen was well stocked with supplies and the bedrooms were comfortable. We would consider staying here again.

Nice cozy cabin

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very nice, clean, and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was fantastic. One thing that would have made it better would be a fire pit. Overall it was great!

Awesome, Wonderful Lakehouse Cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at this cabin! I got there late into the night due to my flight being late and the caretakers had the frontporch light on awaiting me. The directions were very simple and I got gps service all the way from Duluth airport to the cabin. I got great internet service inside the cabin which made me extremely happy. The weather was beautiful! I awoke to the waves sounding on the rocks and the sunshine and it was so dang peaceful! I made my coffee in the coffee maker and stood on the deck and soaked in my surroundings. In the kitchen is every type of baking dish one would need to cook, everything is obtainable. The décor is reminiscent of the 70's which I thoroughly loved. It took me back to a simpler, safer time in life. The warmth inside of yesteryear is something you don't get nowawadays. I liked to plant myself in this plaid chair with matching ottoman and found I made it my home every time I came in the house...even telling myself "how can I ship it back" which I would then come to reality to realize that its not coming with me! The surrounding landscape is just beautiful. Distant wrrrr of boats passing through the waters, I could find myself living here. But, that's not going to happen. The beds were comfortable. Water in the shower needed to be on about 5 minutes before it got warm, I found this out the hard way but it woke me up quickly like a couple of coffees would. I stayed alone, I am a woman and found it extremely safe. I have no bad things to say about this cabin at all. Only good, positive things! And memories!! I'm very grateful for the experience. I needed it.
