Island Retreat-Lake Vermilion

Holiday Rental House -
4 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 10
Ely, Minnesota
Classic Northwood's log cabin sitting on 52 acres of beautiful wooded property on Pine Island. This rustically beautiful cabin has four bedrooms, two lofts, 1 bathroom, screened in front porch, family room, living room, sauna, deck, and fireplace. The cabin has a rich heritage and history as it has been in the same family for more than 80 years. If you are looking for a remote, relaxing get-away the Island Retreat is perfect. Take yourself back in time with the woodburning stove in the kitchen, and propane lights through out the cabin to a much simpler time. There is no electricity. All the comforts of home with a propane refridgerator and hotwater heater. A true gem in the Northwoods.
