Our affordable Minnesota cabins for rent, boat rentals, reserved docking, heated swimming pool/sauna and convenient central location on the lake make the perfect setting for your northwoods vacation. See for yourself why our resort was named one of Minnesota’s “Nine Great Family Fishing Getaways” by Minnesota Sportsman magazine.



We invite you to experience the comfort and history of Everett Bay Lodge On Lake Vermilion, a Northern Minnesota Fishing Resort, along with a fun and home-like atmosphere. Your vacation is complete with reserved docking with electricity for your boat with a paved boat launch, a variety of boat rentals, a fish cleaning shack with bait and ice, water toys such as kayaks and paddleboards, campfire pit with wood provided, playground, game room and Satellite TV and internet access in all cabins.


We are ideally located in the Superior National Forest near the many Lake Vermilion attractions and activities Minnesota’s Arrowhead/ Voyageur Country has to offer: including Minnesota’s first and richest underground ore mine, the International Wolf Center, World class hiking and biking experiences, Fortune Bay Gaming Casino, plus many more.

The Lake Vermilion area and the towns of Tower, Ely, and Virginia can accommodate all of your shopping and dining needs, all within 5 to 35 minutes. If golf is what you enjoy, don’t miss The Wilderness at Fortune Bay, only 5 minutes from us – ranked No. 2 in Golf Digest’s 2017-18 list of public courses in Minnesota. In addition, wildlife viewing and bird watching is wonderful. You’ll enjoy Eagles, Osprey, Deer, Moose, Wolf, Bear, Waterfowl of all kinds, and birds of many species.




Lake Vermilion is often described as the state’s most beautiful lake. This natural scenic (Canadian shield) beauty has over 1,200 miles of wooded shoreline and is dotted with 365 islands over its 40,000 acre surface.

Not to be overshadowed by its beauty, the fishery gets high marks as well. Lake Vermilion Minnesota walleye and muskie fishing and the bass fishing for both smallmouth and largemouth is second to none. Add northern pike, jumbo perch and assorted panfish to the offering. Lake Vermilion is located at the edge of the Superior National Forest and Boundary Water Canoe Area (BWCA). This marvel of a lake is connected by short portages and rivers with over fifteen hundred other lakes and rivers.
