About the property

Great For Couples Or A Family!

This 9 year old beautiful home is just like new with a King size bed on the main level and a big loft area that includes a Queen bed and 2 Twin beds.

This Pike River/Pike bay inlet property has a nice private dock with a sitting/fishing bench where you are able to sit,fish or relax.Fishing is closed on the Pike River during the month of May for spawning, but access to the lake is open. You are welcome to park your boat at the dock. We do not recommend that Fiberglass boats /or any other boats over 19' navigate up the river due to the current and fluctuation of depth caused by rain, evaporation and wind. By boat it takes around 7-10 minutes to navigate out to Pike Bay and that is the same amount of it Takes to get to a couple of good concrete launch ramps that can put you in different bays on the East side of Lake Vermilion for Fishing or just cruising around.

The fire pit area has plenty of seating and is only a stones throw away from the dock. The large deck has a patio table, new gas grill and a small fire pit if you like to sit out at night and enjoy the fresh air. The inside of the house has a full kitchen that includes a( Keurig 2.0 coffeemaker , Primo 5 gallon water dispenser, 4 slice bagel toaster and a large slow cooker). Also a full bathroom with tub/ shower and a laundry room for your use. The house has central A/C with 3 separate units. The large propane fireplace has a safety screen on it to keep hands from touching the glass and above that you'll find a nice 40" High Definition LCD TV with Dish Network HD satellite service. A DVD player is also connected for those rainy days.

Location is key for this vacation rental. You are less than a half mile from a large gas station, convenient store with drive thru bait service that includes a new Liquor store.

Lake Vermilion is the 5th largest inland lake in Minnesota at 40,000 plus acres with over 350 islands and 1,200 miles of shoreline that makes it one of Minnesota's Top Multi-Species lakes.

AWESOME!!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is awesome! It feels brand new, and was very clean. The satellite TV and wifi worked perfectly. We enjoyed the deck, grill, and fire pits each evening. Yes, you can hear some road noise, but that didn't bother us a bit. You can also hear the waterfalls by the bridge, which was really nice. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the water cooler was an added bonus. The owners were super easy to work with. This was the perfect home base for enjoying the Tower/Ely area. I would highly recommend this cabin!!

Perfect Long Weekend in the North

  • 5 of 5

A few friends and I were looking for a weekend away from the city to play some golf during the day and sit around a fire pit at night, and this place was absolutely ideal. The cabin was clean and comfortable. They have a really nice set up for playing music hooked up inside the house that comes out some speakers by the stairs when you're hanging out by the fire pit. There was loads of wood available for us to keep that fire going, which was really nice. The shower was great. It stayed hot and the pressure was good which is not common for these types of rentals! The cove area is very peaceful and even though it is near a road we didn't hear anything. We even got to enjoy the northern lights from the end of the dock one night. We loved this place and would absolutely go back.

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband were looking for a peaceful cabin with a great view for our vacation to get away from all the stress at work. This is the perfect spot! We were in love as soon as we saw it. The house is by a lake with a beautiful view. We love that the kitchen is fully equipped as we love to cook during our trips. We also utilized the two fire pits outside while enjoying the view. The bed was very comfortable and everything was very clean and organized. The canoe was also a great addition, we enjoyed it!

We would also want to thank Bruce for being very accommodating! We are very grateful that he waited for us to check in even if we were a few hours late. We requested an early check in, which was not a problem but we had car issues on our way there that delayed our arrival by 4.5 hours. Bruce was very understanding and waited for us to come.

We enjoyed our stay here! We went fishing, hiking, drove around scenic views, and visited the neighboring town and museums. I highly recommend this place.
