Photos and Description of the Tower vacation house rental

Great For Couples Or A Family!

This 8 year old beautiful home is just like new with a King size bed on the main level and a big loft area that includes a Queen bed and 2 Twin beds.

This Pike River property has a nice private dock with a sitting/fishing bench where you are able to sit,fish or relax.Fishing is closed on the Pike River during the month of May for spawning. You are welcome to park your boat at the dock. We do not recommend that Fiberglass boats /or any other boats over 18' navigate up the river due to the extreme current and fluctuation of depth caused by rain, evaporation and wind. By small boat it takes around 7-10 minutes to navigate out to Pike Bay that is the same amount of it Takes to get to a couple of good concrete launch ramps that can put you in different bays on the East side of Lake Vermilion for Fishing or just cruising around.

The fire pit area has plenty of seating and is only a stones throw away from the dock. The large deck has a patio table, gas grill and a small fire pit if you like to sit out at night and enjoy the fresh air. The inside of the house includes a full kitchen, full bathroom with shower and a laundry room. The house has central A/C with 3 separate units. The large propane fireplace has a safety screen on it to keep hands from touching the glass and above that you'll find a nice 40" HD TV with Dish Network satellite service and an DVD player for those rainy days.

Location is key for this vacation rental. You are less than a half mile from a large gas station, convenient store with bait that includes a new Coffee shop and Liquor store.
