Everett Bay Lodge – Lake Vermilion resort 1935 – present

Came upon some Everett Bay Lodge history while searching around on the web for something else. Cabin 7 circa 1935 along with the Everett Bay Lodge “Lounging Room” from the same era. You can see plenty of similarities if you look at the current lodge picture. Just traded the guns on the back wall for Lake Vermilion fish.

Snowmobile Weather Stays for Lake Vermilion Resorts

With the approaching snow heading this way over the next 24 hours it looks like snowmobile trails will remain in good shape for a while. Temps are expected to be in the low 30’s with lows in the teens and twenties over the next five days or so. Lake Vermilion and the surrounding Taconite and Arrowhead trails will continue to be decent. Check us out if you need a place to stay. 800-249-3178

Rain and Snow Hit Hard On Lake Vermilion

Yesterday we had over an inch and a half of rain that was followed by 6+ inches of snow. Freezing rain snapped some trees and it’s a sloshy mess right now. The power was out for many hours due to the freezing rain. We look forward to some warmer weather. Dave
