About the Property

Classic Log Cabin With Guest House Sleeps 13

There are two cabins on this property and they will not be rented separately. The main cabin is a 2 bedroom, 3/4 bath with large open livingroom with hearth fire place. The main cabin has a full kitchen with everything you need to cook and serve meals and table seating for 6. There is also a large screened in porch with glass table seating for 6 overlooking the beach, lake and views to the nearby island.
Second cabin is up a short set of steps. It has two bedrooms, 3/4 bath, another full kitchen and living room. Also has a large screened in porch with its own porch-swing. It has a delightful view of the lake and the 70 foot pines surrounding the picturesque log cabin and rock wall.
Included in the rental are the use of two kayaks, a rowboat, and a paddleboat. There is an outboard motor boat outfitter at the nearby resort. The public landing is close and you can bring your own boat and shelter it in the drive in over the water boat house where elctrical outlets are available for recharging batteries for trolling motors.
There is a countertop and sink in the garage for cleaning fish inside away from the bugs.
Lake Vermilion is a 40,000+ acre lake with over 365 islands. The lake is stocked with Walleye, Northern Pike, Small and Large mouth Bass, black Crappies, Sun fish and Perch. There are also large Muskelunge for the determined sportsman. There are many sites on the water to visit, including remote islands, resorts, restaurants and even a casino ( although it is on the other side of the lake 45 miles away).

This is a log cabin in the remote area of Lake Vermilion. Its rustic charm and peaceful setting gives you a reminder that the best things in life are simple...But ...with all the comforts of home.

Drive your own boat in and out of the "on water" boathouse after a great day of fishing or exploring the 40,000 acre+ Lake Vermilion with its 365 islands. Wild blueberries are abundant and picking is at its best in late July and early August.

If you enjoy golf, there are three public courses within 1 hour that are rated in the top 100 public golf courses in america...The Legends and the Quarry in Biwabic, MN and The Wilderness at Fortune Bay Casino in Tower MN.. There are also three 9 hole executive courses within 20 miles. Vermilion Fairways between the town of Cook and the cabin, The Vermilion River Greens on the Crane Lake road and a delightful course called Wolf Ridge between Cook and Virginia MN.

Local musical entertainment on the lake can be enjoyed at the Wolf Bay Lodge near the Vermilion River Dam and at The Landing, at the end of Wakemup Bay. Both places serve cocktails and good food if your not in the mood to cook.

The northern part of Minnesota is a rugged landscape of rock outcrops, pines and grassy lowlands. There are many trails to take you hiking back into the woods on state and county lands. The trails are wide and very scenic. But, stay on the trails. Getting lost is a real danger in these remote woods.

Small boats are available from the owner to explore the rugged shores, islands where you can discover hidden sandy beaches.

Fishing on lake vermilion is amazing. There are large fish in this large lake. Muskellunge, northern pike, walley, large and small mouth bass are plentiful in the bay in front of the cabin. Crappies, sun fish and perch can be caught right off the docks.

This cabin and guest house arrangement is like a small resort onto its own. The stone work in the walkways and rock walls surrounding this 1930's log cabin add a character of quality and history. The fireplace is an old world stone hearth fireplace that adds character and comfort. Once you see this place you'll agree..It is special.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We are Pam and Dave Coughlan. We invite you into our private lake home for the simple reason that a place like this is too nice not to be enjoyed during the seasons. We can't be there all spring, summer and fall and it is a bit out of the way for long weekends( although we do that whenever possible ). We like that our children can go to the upper cabin and be away from the adults and can stay up later without bothering us. There is also room for other couples to have their privacy. We are still active in our shcool age children's lives and can't wait to have the time to stay at the cabin all the time.

Why the Owner Chose Orr, MN, USA:
From the moment we walked onto the property we knew this was a special place. The old world log cabin made from hand hewn logs and a commanding fireplace with hand crafted, hand split granite stones. The walkways and the foundation rock all hand placed as well as the perimeter stone wall. A gentle slope goes down a pavement stone walkway to the beach and boathouse and onto the floating dock. Medium grain sand on the beach with an outdoor fire pit for evening fires. It has everything we want and need to enjoy the up north Minnesota experience.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The log cabin on lake vermilion is the reminiscence of the movie ' on golden pond ' the sunsets give a color to the lake that glows yellow, pink and orange and the clouds set the light and mood for the whole day. The night sky is so clear that the milky way is looks like a cloud of stars and its even brighter during the aurora, or northern lights shine forth. Enjoy the quiet, peaceful stay at our 'slice of heaven'
