Lake Vermilion Cabin with Bunkhouse-- Pet-Friendly, Sleeps 5

Sleeps5
Bedrooms 1
Bathrooms1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 4 - 6 nights

Overview

About the property

This 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom cabin is cozy and romantic. (We call it The Honeymoon Cabin!) Nestled in the North Woods, on the shore of Lake Vermilion, its pine interior is homey and warm, and French doors open onto a deck that looks out over the lake. The kitchen is compact, but fully outfitted with a refrigerator, oven/stove, microwave, toaster oven, and coffeemaker.

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!)

The cabin itself has 1 bedroom with a queen bed. For an additional fee ($30/night, $35 cleaning fee), you can access the charming bunkhouse on the shoreline, which sleeps 3. The bunkhouse has an enclosed chem toilet. There's also a cute outhouse up the hill. You'll also enjoy the sauna, which is shared with one other cabin.

The driveway of this cabin can accommodate one boat trailer. (Getting a trailer in and out requires some care, as the gravel road is not wide.) Boats can be put in the lake at Moccasin Point or at Greubens, both of which are very nearby.

We do NOT have a fire pit, and do not allow outside fires. There is often a high risk of fire, 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 671102. This cabin is next door to 671102 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

My mom bought this cabin from the original owner, who was a neighbor and friend, in the '90's. She lovingly refurbished and decorated it. I've spent many happy summers there. I'm a writer, and it's the perfect spot for quiet reflection and work-- while still being an ideal launching pad for a busy day exploring the lake and the woods.

Sarah Fain purchased this cottage in 1990

What makes this cottage unique

The bunkhouse makes this cabin even more special. It was built by the original owner of the cabin, with the help of several of the original owners on the road-- including my great-uncle. It's right on the water, and my mom spent many hours making it a unique, comfortable getaway.

Great little cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was perfect for 2 and my son stayed in the bunk house. It was very clean and had everything you could possibly need. (Except a cast iron pan😁?). The stay was great and I would come back again.

Little oasis

  • 4 of 5

The cabin and bunk house were so nice! Everything we needed was available to us and we enjoyed our stay. The only things that we didn't like is that the shoreline area was very rocky... If you jump in the lake wear shoes because your feet will hit the rocks. The path to the sauna is difficult to walk on especially at night. Overall it was very nice and we enjoyed it!

Lovely! Perfect cabin for two. The lake is beautiful and we caught plenty of fish!

  • 5 of 5

What an idyllic retreat! Cool, crisp nights with the loons singing us to sleep. A few rainy days, but enough to see and do so we were never bored. Rented "Ol' Blue", a fishing boat at Gruben's, and caught perch, northern, and walleye. Better than adequate kitchen/supplies, fantastic linens, satellite TV, and french doors opening to a spacious deck overlooking the lake and personal dock. Highly recommend!

Wonderful Place, Very Accomodating

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed at the Bunkhouse cabin and once again, it didn't disappoint. It's clean, cozy, quiet and the host/caretakers are always right there should you need any help. The bonus this year: we brought home a limit of fresh walleye! Thanks again, looking forward to our next stay!

Wonderful respite

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful 3 night stay in the cabin. What a relaxing and peaceful setting. The cabin, as others have said, is just the right size for two. We had beautiful weather. Spent one afternoon tooling around the lake in a "very used but adequate and affordable" pontoon we rented at Grubers Marina. Be sure to check them out! The extra plus was being able to bring our elderly cocker spaniel who enjoyed his vacation as well.

Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cabin. Everything is clean & well kept. The main cabin is perfect for 2 people. The bunkhouse is also lovely & works well for extra people. We had a pair of humming birds visit us several times every day. And the caretakers, Cindy & John visited us our first night to be sure everything was in order. We will be back!
