About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 7.5 Baths, (Sleeps 24)

The Boathouse is nestled among towering pines on the western shores of Lake Vermilion. This exceptional 3 acre waterfront property just outside of Cook, Minnesota, offers a classic northern landscape with casual lake-style living at its best. You will feel as if you have stepped into a world where quiet mornings, time on the water and relaxing are all that matter.

So leave your watch behind and come stay in our comfortable upscale property featuring quality bedding, picturesque views, and private baths. The unique centerpiece of the great room is a vintage 1923, 32-foot, wooden boat from Lake Vermilions past. Make yourself at home with our large selection of books, magazines, and games... get comfortable on one of the four spacious decks overlooking the lake... get a hot stone or traditional massage on site... detoxify in the lakeside sauna... kayak or canoe to one of the 365 islands on Lake Vermilion... surf the web with our high-speed wireless access... you decide... but no hurries and no worries...

We welcome you year round for you to enjoy all that the Lake Vermilion area has to offer - boating, fishing, seaplane tours, award-winning golf, spa services, snowmobiling, cross-county skiing and more. The Boathouse is ideal for groups of 2 to 24, family reunions and corporate retreats.

Picture perfect

  • 5 of 5

This place is the perfect destination. Went with the family snowmobiling on the lake and a lot of the many miles of trails. The Boathouse has everything you need and very spacious. While there don't forget to check out The Landing for prime rib.

Awesome place for the whole family!!

  • 5 of 5

Great place for the whole family! We had almost all rooms in this place occupied without issue. The property was clean and the grounds well maintained. We love the view of the lake from the house and multi level walkway. The owners were very friendly and accommodating! For parties large and small the Boathouse is the way to go on the Cook end of Lake Vermillion!! Highly recommend checking out the Landing for food and drinks that is very close to the Boathouse.

Great snowmobile getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Great for a group of snowmobiles. It is very private. The Boathouse is close to the Landing restaurant and trails. It has the up north feeling with everything you need. It is very clean & well taken care of. Matt & Tony are great hosts. We have been there several times, year after year.

Unbelievable views and incredible home!

  • 5 of 5

Had the opportunity to spend some time at The Boathouse. We were thoroughly impressed by the overall cleanliness of the property, groomed flowers and property maintenance. We were politely greeted by the owners, whom oriented us to the property and all the great amenities the property has to offer. We spent most days on the beautiful lake, but most nights inside the home. The rooms were spacious and each bedroom had its own bathrooms (a plus for our family!). DirecTV, internet and washing machine/dryer made our experience great and we even watched movies on Netflix and Hulu. We had a BBQ almost every night to the calm, peaceful sounds of the lake. Even saw some fireworks across the bay!

We are excited to return in future and recommend this property!

Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the boathouse with a group of friends to fish and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Tony and Matt were super helpful and welcoming and everything went very smoothly with payment, check in etc. The house and facilities are fantastic - a rare occasion where the photos really don't do the property justice! There was plenty of room for all of us and the house is very comfortably furnished. My first VRBO experience and this sets the bar very high!

Private, Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I cannot describe the incredible experience we had at The Boathouse. Not only was the owner friendly, but the place was completely cleaned and smelt wonderful! Lake Vermilion is the perfect setting for a vacation and The Boathouse exemplifies the perfect vacation rental! Thank you for the incredible time!
