Private Cabin Rental

11 posts in this topic

Does anyone out there have any experience with renting a private cabin?

We're looking at doing that next year in September for a couple of weeks.

Any insights, experiences, recommendations would be most welcome!

We noticed a couple of years ago that there are several houses for rent on V. Next year we are renting one so we can expand our 1 week vacation into 2. The agreements seem to pretty well mirror the agreements for regular resort cabins. Your experience will depend on the people managing the property just like your resort experience will depend on those running the resort. Good and bad in all situations. I would start by word-of-mouth recomendations. Rantalahti is the house we are staying at. It's next door to Muskego Point which is where we stay on our normal vacation week. Nice home. Owners are pleasant and we haven't heard any negatives about their dealings. Might be a good place to start.

We stayed at Uncle Tom's Cabin (Tom Kvale) and I would highly recommend it. Great shore, fire pit, sauna, dish TV, basement for wet clothes, nice deck, very well stocked w/ supplies.

We also stayed at Trancheffs and I would go back there as well. Not as nice, but well maintained and attentive owners on site.

There are a lot of very nice private cabins for rent on the lake now.

Not sure how competativly priced that they are compared to a resort.

Sue,

My family and I got to walk through it before we left on July 29th. You'll love it! We'll get spoiled for sure. It's a good thing Joe and Jenny run such a great place at muskego (hee hee smirk.gif)

Good pick Sue. The resorts on Big V. are overpriced and too many cabins on such small areas! Private home rentals are the wave of the future! Once all the resorts are gone, the lake will have less people around and the fishing will be fantastic once again!

I have ny doubts about the resorts being the source of "all the people" on the lake fishing. When I forst found Vermilion 20 years ago, there were a lot less people on it. As I recall there are no new resorts in that time. Maybe I'm wrong about that. But, there sure are a lot more folks on the lake. I wonder where they came from??

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
