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.

Minnesota Nice

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this stay from the owners' hospitality to the space itself was the definition of Minnesota nice. I would definitely rent this place again if given the opportunity.

A perfect location for a snowmobile getaway with lots of room for trailer and sleds.

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was super cute, clean and well kept. Bruce was very helpful and easy to work with. We loved the morning views and the fire place! Couldn't ask for anything better with easy access to the trails and a convenience store close by. We're already talking about coming back next winter!

Perfect weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location for us. We went snowmobiling and the trail was right across the road. Also close to Tower and Ely.

The cabin was great for the 4 of us. Enough space, clean and Bruce was more than helpful from recommendations to plowing us out after 12 inches of snow! We will be back.

A Good Stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a very good stay at Bruce and Mary's cabin. Bruce gave us a tour and is appreciated. The cabin is very clean and have mostly all we need (we had to buy bath soap but that's about it). Having said that, I deduct a star because we paid 864.15 for 4 nights. Having stayed there now, I feel that that's too expensive. We had a beachfront property rented in Hawaii for almost the same price. The cabin's location is too close to the road (you can hear constant road noise, it gets quiet at night) and the waterfront is murky and has current that's not conducive for canoeing (especially with a child). We still recommend it nevertheless -- we just had higher expectations of the location. Thank you so much.
