About Keith and Brenda Johnson

I have been on lake Vermilion every summer of my life. My grandfather bought our property in the early 50's .It's gone thru a few remodels since then. My wife and kids enjoy the lake as much as I do!

As a family we enjoy boating, snowmobiling, fishing and hunting.

Keith and Brenda Johnson purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Keith and Brenda Johnson chose Cook

Cedar Cove, the cabin we are renting, is adjacent to our cabin.

We have known the last 3 families who have owned this property and watched them enjoy Lake time too.

When this property became available my wife and I decided to buy it so other families could enjoy the Lake Vermilion experience.

What makes this cabin unique

This property is centrally located east/west on the southern shore of the Lake. We are within 7 miles of the Fortune Bay Casino and golf course. We are within 4-5 miles of 3 different restaurants.

We have a small sand beach which is quite a bonus because most shorelines are rock!

Of course the best asset is the Lake itself! 1200 miles of shoreline with over 300 islands. You can also get to the BWCAW from Lake Vermilion. There is a canoe portage and also mechanized boat portage going into 'Trout Lake'.

Cozy Scenic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvelous time at Cedar Cove. Keith and Brenda were very nice and take great care of the property. Sandy lake bottom made for great swimming. Watching the sun rise and set from the living room was wonderful! Looking to rebook for next year!

Great Getaway Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four nights with our Son, Daughter-In Law and two grandchildren. The space was just right for us. This is probably one of the best equipped cabins we have stayed in.We were able to prepare our favorite meals with ease. The sauna/shower was so much fun, we never missed the fact the shower was not inside. We ate on the deck that fits six well. Little known fact is that the house by the lake has the cutest little bunk room for kids. (our girls were not brave enough, as they were sure spiders shared this space!).. We were able to catch fish off the dock. The fire ring had chairs around it and we had fires and smores every night. It was great to be able to jump in the boat and go for a ride whenever we wanted. The views from the cabin and the dock are spectacular.You can enjoy a beautiful sunset every night. Kieth was very easy to work with and answered every question quite timely. The value for this cabin is unmatched in our experience. We will be staying here again!

Cedar Cove lives up to the reviews

  • 4 of 5

Just got back from a great week at Cedar Cove. The property is in a great location, is very quiet, clean, and well equipped. There were great family games, some movies for the DVD player. And being a Verizon customer, I even had my phone access for the trip. I was not expecting that. The only thing I might suggest to guests who stay, is that if you are bringing up a boat, drop your boat off at the landing first. While there is ample parking, if you have a truck and a boat, it can be difficult to manage if you bring your boat to the cabin . It is not unmanageable, just a bit more difficult. Other wise a great stay!!

Very clean and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at Cedar Cove. The cabin is very clean, and is located centrally on the lake making it very easy to fish both the west and east ends of the lake! The location is very scenic with many islands in the bay. My family loves the sauna, and it is great sitting on the deck watching the duck families paddle by and listening to the loons. Definitely recommend!!
