Come to beautiful Lake Vermilion and enjoy one of the ten most beautiful lakes in the world! There are over 290 miles of shoreline, mostly glacial rock with stately evergreens, and 365 unique islands on this pristine northern Minnesota lake. In the summer and fall you can explore the lake on our pontoon boat, fishing boat, row boat, or kayaks (or rent a canoe or jet skies). World-class golf is available at 3 courses within 25 miles of the cabin (The Quarry, The Legends, and Wilderness). In the winter months, the lake is perfect for snow shoeing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling or ice-fishing, and downhill skiing at Giants Ridge is only 30 minutes away.
Our cabin is right next to miles of state park so the bay is quiet and undeveloped; we share it with loons and hummingbirds. The cabin sits on a rise overlooking Big Bay and Ely Island. The vista looking east takes in several smaller islands. McKinley Park, with its sandy beach, boat launch, and playground, is less than a mile down the road. The popular Northwood's town of Ely is just 20 minutes away. This cabin is perfectly situated for a quiet romantic getaway, a family retreat, or a weekend with friends.
The cabin was built in the 1950s and was remodeled 12 years ago; air conditioning was installed in 2015. The kitchen is new and the main living area is vaulted to provide a more panoramic view of the lake. There is a deck attached to the cabin which overlooks the lake, and a larger deck sitting right over the water. We have a wood-burning fireplace in the main living area and a gas fireplace in the walkout level, as well as a fire pit outside. There is a beautiful spot for a hammock and a side yard perfect for yard games.

About Tamra Nelson
We bought this cabin in 2000 and just love it! Over the years, we have had family reunions, quiet getaways, and weekends with friends. The cabin is perfect for everyone. One of our daughters prefers to swim off the dock, run on the trials, kayak, ride the pontoon and camp. Our other daughter loves to read so she settles on the couch by the fireplace or on the deck with her book. Our grandson loves to feed the deer, the ducks and the birds, take boat rides, and go to McKinley Park. By early evening, we all sit on the deck for appetizers, drinks and stories before dinner. By the end of the day, we quiet down with Scrabble, card games or a good book.

Why Tamra Nelson chose Breitung
Tower is a quaint northern Minnesota town with a few shops, municipal playground, train museum and friendly people. But, the real gem of this location is The Lake! If you have never seen Lake Vermilion, you really must. For more about the lake, click on the link at the end of the Owner Information section.

Had a wonderful time!
We stayed three nights here. Tamra and Steve were very responsive and the entire visit was wonderful. We enjoyed snowmobiling, snow shoeing, and cross-country skiing. There were 6 deer that also resided near the property and were great entertainment. Thanks for making the deer food available! The cabin was clean, comfortable and convenient. The wood-burning fireplace in the living room proved to be a great focal point for the adults sitting around after a long day outside and enjoying a glass of wine! Will definitely try to return!
feeling like being at home
the cabin is big , nice , warm and confortable !
everything was there,,, books , games, and a good choice of kitchen ware !
Wonderful location and home
This is the second time we have spent the Christmas holidays in this cabin (house) It has been a great family gathering location and accommodations. We will be going back in the future.
The house is everything noted and more. Tamera is a great homeowner and easy to communicate with.
We spent the week ice fishing and snowmobiling both right out the back door.
Thank you for the use of your cabin.
The beauty of northern Minnesota in the winter!
We spent four days in front of a blazing fire overlooking Lake Vermilion with our two daughters and their families. The cabin was perfect for our group, and we loved the open floor plan which allowed the whole family to be together even though they were doing different things - cooking, playing games, reading, or just talking. The perfectly frozen lake called the kids outside several times a day to walk, ice skate,or just explore the winter wonderland. A perfect Thanksgiving!
Renee's 60 birthday !
House was great. Had little trouble to figure oven out, but otherwise great. Beautiful lake and weather was great. Thanks!
The group of seven from southern MN enjoyed the house and its close location to the snowmobile trail being out the back door on the lake. The accommodations were excellent, but the garage was VERY nice as we could put the snowmobiles inside and not worry about them!! We snowmobiled over 665 miles in 5 days riding. Was nice to have Tower close by to eat out or pickup supplies. Beds were very comfortable.
Tamra was EXCELLENT to work with at the last minute planning.
We will be BACK!
