Easy access from Virginia. Great for fishing, snowmobiling, and relaxing!

About Petersons and Naabs
The cabin was purchased by two families who spent the last 25 years visiting Lake Vermilion. For a long time we've talked about owning a place on the lake and when this cabin came up for sale it was the perfect match.
Petersons and Naabs purchased this Cabin in 2017
Why Petersons and Naabs chose Tower
Access can be really difficult on Vermilion with many cabins being located on islands or down long dirt roads. From the twin cities this cabin is only three hours away and you can pull right up to the front door with a truck. In addition it is on a fairly central bay which gives us the opportunity to fish huge portions of the lake without long boat rides. Snowmobiling in the winter is perfect because the trail is just up the road from the cabin. All of these and more are why after years of looking we purchased this cabin.
What makes this Cabin unique
This cabin was once part of Bayview Lodge and purpose built for short term stays. The interior is all wood and has a very cozy feel to it. There is a huge stone fireplace and to read a book with the fire crackling is priceless.

Nice older cabin with great property management
Glad we were able to make a quick trip up to the lake and stay at this cabin. Owners were very friendly and very helpful if we needed anything.
Very clean. Owners are very nice.
Greatest Trip Ever
What a relaxing trip! If you want the true UpNorth experience, this is it, bonus without all the work.
The communication with the owners was great. Vermilion is such a pretty lake and our cabin was overlooking the lake through the old birch trees and towering red pines. The view was beautiful and the sunsets, breathtaking.
The cabin was perfect. The knotty pine finish takes me back to memories of our family vacations up north as a child. It had a full bath and kitchen with 3 bedrooms and an open living and dining area with a big picture window looking at the lake. All the windows had new upgrades and they kept the timeless charm of this cabin by keeping the cool old windows in the kitchen.
Denise and Roy, the owners, have everything you need for a relaxing family getaway. They made sure everything was fully furnished and stocked, this included all the firewood you could possibly want for the beautiful hand made old stone fireplace and the firepit and trust me we had that going all the time.
Oh and did I mention the free wifi, super important with 2 teenage boys that have to Bluetooth and streamline music. We can't wait to come back when the lake is open so we can do some boating and canoeing. The boys even asked Roy if he would take them fishing and he was so nice and told them, absolutely, anytime.
The owners were so friendly and accommodating and lived next door so it was nice to have them so close. It was like having our own personal tour guides. They had wonderful recommendations on where to go for other fun activities when everything opens back up.
Definitely will be making this an annual trip and there is so much space and other rental options on their property that we will be bringing our friends next time because this truly is the UpNorth vacation destination for us.
Visit cut short
The picture shown on this site is not the one you get at this cabin, this is a deck off of the owners property. This cabin is in great dire need of rehab. Floors bellow when you walk on them, deck is in need of some real fixing, your cabin view of the lake is obscured by trees in front of the bedroom window. Some of the rooms had a bad odor and it's not as private as the pictures appear. More like a camp site.. The stairs to the lake are in front of the owners cabin and are very, very steep to reach the water. The docks need help also, sway when walking on them. The owners were nice, but this was a lot of money for this cabin and it wasn't even on the water.
They have Roku TV, WIFI wasn't the greatest, couldn't even get a signal to make a phone call.
I will not be returning to this place soon.
We're very sorry you didn't enjoy your visit. It sounds like you were looking for a new luxury home on the lake, not a 1950's era resort cabin. While we have added many amenities (plumbing, windows, electric, etc) we never intend to get rid of it's character and history. Next time you rent on VRBO we hope you get something more along the lines of what your looking for. As for anyone reading this please do not let it deter you from a great family vacation but understand that it is a cabin up-north and not a luxury lake home.
Great family get together
Property is well kept and has great lake access and beautiful sunsets. The kids love the giant lily pad!
