Fish Walleye, Muskie, and Bass... Relax on beach... Golf!
average rating of 4.8 based on 12 reviews

Great place for a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent place to stay if you want peace, quiet and relaxation along with great fishing! The cabin was clean and stocked with everything we needed for the week. Owners Bill and Karen were available to answer questions and meet any requests we had. They were welcoming, wonderful hosts! It is a serene, secluded location with a great sand beach and clear waters. We had 2 adults and 5 kids ages 11-19 and this was an excellent place for both adults and kids! I would highly recommend this vacation location!

Great fishing cabin

  • 5 of 5

I have 7 VRBO homes that I manage in La Jolla Ca.so I know of what I speak. I rented an apartment off of a garage by Tower. It was immaculate, well stocked, and very comfortable. Plenty of room for the 5 of us. Karen and Bill, the owners were around to answer any question and give us fresh towels and sheets for our second week.

We mostly used the place to sleep while visiting the construction of my new log cabin being built down the road. The place was perfect for our needs. Thank you Bill and Karen.

Family Fun!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time enjoying this guest house. The kids loved the beach access and paddle boating to explore the island. I felt safe docking our new boat due to how protected the bay is from bad weather. The owners are very nice and helpful with everything. We will be back to make more memories!

Lake Vermilion Home Rental:

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay. Our 4 grand-kids enjoyed the beach, paddle boat, canoe and exploring the quiet bay and island close by. The home is close to town and there are nearby attractions to visit for entertainment.

The owners live next door and are readily available for questions and are very helpful. The beach and lake view are a short walk from the home, the beach is kept up nicely.

We have new memories shared with our family.
