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.

Comfortable and Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our time. The view from the deck was gorgeous. Bird watching was fun. Beautiful Norway pines. The cabin had everything we needed. Loved the porch room on the days it was cooler.

Lake Vermillion Cabin experience

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cabin with wrap around deck. Clean and well maintained with great accommodations. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking. Beds were clean and very comfortable. Towels and lines supplied and adequate.

We really enjoyed our stay on Lake Vermillion. We used the kayak and canoe as well as 2 kayaks we brought with us. We were out on the lake every day. Not sure that we would use the sauna before we arrived but I think we used it every day and really enjoyed it.

Caretakers were wonderful. They stopped by the first day to make sure everything was in order. They were courteous, apologetic, and prompt at taking care of the water issue mid week when we called. (A boat had gotten in the water line which had to be repaired- nothing they could have prevented)

Enjoyed and would recommend these area attractions: International Wolf Center, International Bear Center, and Swiftwater adventures white water rafting on the St. Louis River and the Vince Shute Bear Santuary.

Great stay on Lake Vermillion!

Great cabin with fantastic views of Lake Vermillion

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and very clean cabin. Beautiful views of the lake. Nice dock with boat lift. We brought a pontoon and a Lund fishing boat and the dock was big enough. We had 10 and the cabin slept us all comfortably. This property looks exactly like what is pictured. Road is easy to get into and had enough parking for 3 cars. Just a very nice cabin.

Great property for families!

  • 5 of 5

Great time had by all. Very comfortable cabin with plenty of spaces for kids, adults and dog. Loved the 4-season room overlooking the lake- spectacular views! Caretakers were awesome when severe weather moved in and we needed to make a mad dash to the crawl space in the hail and wind. Owner was very pleasant to work with and very responsive. Would definitely recommend!
