Photos and Description of the Ely vacation cabin rental

Cabin with stunning lake views, 4 Bedrooms + 2 Convertible bed(s), (Sleeps 7-9)

Why stay at a crowded resort when, for the same price, you can have true wilderness seclusion in this privately owned, beautifully furnished Lake Vermilion lake cabin?

Looking out our windows, you see no other cabins unless you use binoculars. We are at the 'more remote' east end of Lake Vermilion, on the mainland. (Many cabins on Vermilion are on islands, but when you come to our cabin you drive right up to the door.) If you're looking at a map of Lake Vermilion, the far eastern tip of Pine Island points like a finger right at our cabin. The beauty of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) is only a half mile away through the woods, one and a half miles away by boat or canoe. A canoe is provided, and a boat and motor can be rented nearby.

Enjoy your own private dock on a renowned fishing lake, 250 feet of private shoreline on a point, large shaded patio with gas grill, and a beautifully furnished wilderness lake cabin featuring all wood interior, fully equipped kitchen, stunning lake views, bathroom with shower, main level living and dining area with stone fireplace, lower level family room with franklin stove fireplace, and a beautiful romantic log master bedroom that features a Sleep Number (R) bed, lake views, and french doors that lead out into the separate lower level family room.

We would like to show you an online slide show of over 100 beautiful pictures of this property. If the link below doesn't work for you, please either call us or send us a VRBO email inquiry and we will send you the link in email.

The bedrooms are configured as follows: bedroom #1 (the master bedroom) has one queen size Sleep Number (R) bed. Bedroom #2 has one twin bed only. Bedroom #3 has one twin bed only. Bedroom #4 has one queen bed and one twin bed. Two additional sofa beds are available, linen included. The entire cabin was completely redone in 2000. Sorry, no dishwasher. No pets. No smoking.

This cabin has been lovingly cared for by the same family for 30 years, and has very seldom been rented out during that time. Understandably, we are interested in renting only to very respectful guests who will treat the property with the same loving care that we do. For this reason we do ask for multiple references and check them carefully. Preference is given to guests who book for two weeks or longer.


The National Geographic Society has described Lake Vermilion as one of the top ten most beautiful lakes in the United States. Today it's known not only for its natural, rustic beauty, but also for championship fishing that includes walleye pike, northern pike, muskellunge, small-mouth bass, crappies, and panfish. Lake Vermilion has 1,200 miles of shoreline (more than any other lake in Minnesota), has no motor restrictions, spans 40 miles, and includes 365 islands --and one of those islands is nine miles long.

Car: recommended

A small island with one very secluded campsite for camping or picnics is a short (1/2 mile) paddle across the bay. It's a 40 minute drive to Bearhead State Park and its 17 miles of groomed hiking trails. It's a 45 minute drive to Fortune Bay Casino and its award winning golf course (ranked by Golf Digest as the 2004 best new public golf course in the U. S.). Boat launching, bait, pontoon boat rental, boat gas, bar, and rustic sauna (bring your own towels; reserve in advance) are available at an established resort 1/3 mile away from this property. Restaurants, art galleries, shopping, a full service spa, and wilderness outfitters are just 1/2 hour away in Ely. The scenic north shore of Lake Superior (and the world famous Superior Hiking Trail) is just 75 miles away, a gorgeous drive over breathtaking Highway 1 (watch for moose, deer, and bald eagles as you drive this road). Also enjoy kayaking, biking, sailing, windsurfing, and waterskiing if you can bring your own equipment.
