In existence since 1935, Westhaven Lodge has a private setting with a premier location on the south side of Big Bay of Lake Vermilion. Recently remodeled, the 3,200 sq. ft. single-story lodge has its own large dock with an available boat lift, its own fire pit and wood-burning sauna, and a large beach that it shares with a two-bedroom seasonal cabin (Cabin 1 at Westhaven Lodge, which is also available for rent if you need more than six bedrooms for your group).
The lodge can easily handle a large crowd as it has beds for up to 18 people. The large master bedroom faces the lake and has a queen bed, two more bedrooms with lake views also contain queen beds, a fourth bedroom has a full bed, and two bunk rooms contain six beds (i.e. three bunk beds) and four beds (i.e. two bunk beds), respectively. The lodge also has a large great room, a four-season porch, a large kitchen and a dining room with room for 12 at the table.
Note that a 10% discount is offered on the nightly rate if you rent for a whole week or more.
If your party is even larger, Cabin 1 at Westhaven Lodge, which is next door and has its own lake frontage with a separate dock and boat lift, can easily handle five more guests. It has one bedroom containing a queen bed and a second that holds another bunk bed and a separate twin bed. Both lodging facilities are completely finished with pine interiors that have granite fireplaces dating back to the 1930s. Please see VRBO Listing #682304 for more information on Cabin 1. Note that while the lodge is great for use all year 'round, Cabin 1 is, unfortunately, only available May through October.
No additional fees for either cabin other than sales tax are applied; however, a damage deposit is required. Questions? Please contact Rodger.
A canoe and small paddle boat are also included with the lodge. Pets are allowed in either cabin, and both structures have decks facing the lake. Because the sun rises and sets so far to the north in the summer, Westhaven Lodge is ideal for watching both as it faces due north with more than 180-degree view of Big Bay.
The boat lifts can accommodate a boat up to 2,400 lbs, or 20 feet or so with a maximum beam/width of up to 8'-0", the nearest free boat landing is only 1.5 miles away, and a large parking lot and trailer storage area also serve both structures.
