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.

Beautiful Deck

  • 5 of 5

Six of us spent the past week in this cabin. It has a newly constructed wrap around deck with an excellent view of the lake. Also, a new dock was installed while we were there. The cabin was very comfortable and well stocked with dishes and cookware. The shower had plenty of hot water and strong water pressure. A Mayfly hatch and cold front made the fishing a challenge, but overall it was a great vacation and we will likely stay here again.

Four out of five stars. We enjoyed our stay.

  • 4 of 5

Accommodations were great - new deck with a great view of the lake. The detached sauna was a welcome relief. One bathroom was a challenge for 7 guys. The kitchen was well stocked with supplies and the bedrooms were comfortable. We would consider staying here again.

Nice cozy cabin

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very nice, clean, and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was fantastic. One thing that would have made it better would be a fire pit. Overall it was great!
