White Eagle Resort on Lake Vermilion

White Eagle Resort in beautiful northern Minnesota is a total dream. Located on Lake Vermilion and near the town of Cook it is the perfect location to make amazing memories! Lake Vermilion is a large and beautiful lake complete with 365 islands. We had so much fun exploring this lake and area.

Quick Facts:

White Eagle Resort is family owned and operated. The owners are friendly and so kind. We loved getting to chat with them. They also were able to give great recommendations of what to do in the area. The resort has many cabins to choose from and they are available to fit small or large groups. They even have one cabin that is on an island! This resort would be the perfect place for a multigenerational family stay, or for a large group of friends. All the cabins are beautiful and very well kept. They also have beautiful lake views and each a dock to keep your boat at.

We stayed in “The Falcon” cabin. It is a lovely five-bedroom log cabin. It was so cozy, comfortable and fun. It had a beautiful kitchen and patio for cooking, and it also has all the cooking supplies and utensils you need. In addition to the five spacious and comfortable bedrooms, it also had a great game room, a cozy fireplace and a piano for my music loving daughter. This cabin is basically my dream home. The outdoor spaces were also very lovely, one fire pit and one fire table, as well a hot tub to watch the stars in. We absolutely loved everything about the cabin.

The resort is set up awesome if you are looking to fish. They have bait available onsite, as well as a great fish cleaning house. If you do not have your own boat, you can rent one from them. They have a variety of options. They also do have guides they work with if you are looking to do a guided fishing trip. We used one of their pontoons during our stay and it was a super nice boat. Perfect for cruising and fishing!

We had a fun time boating around, checking out the cool islands and amazing cabins and homes, and stopping at a few of the local restaurants for meals. It is always fun to boat to dinner 😉 We really enjoyed the Vermillion Club, if you go you must get the prime rib strips. We also enjoyed The Landing which is very nearby the resort. This was a great place for lunch.

In addition to the amazing cabins and super cool lake the resort offers a lot of extras. They have a great playground for children, and a short and beautiful hiking trail, Bear Paw Path. They also have a super fun game room with shuffleboard, pool, board games, ping pong and more. To warm up on cold days they also have saunas. Nice and big and so relaxing!

The resort also has a large beach complete with all the fun items you could dream of. Paddle boards, kayas, beach volleyball, sand toys, yard games and more. In the summer months they also have a variety of fun inflatable trampolines, slides, and water toys. You could play outside all day here and never get bored! Fishing right from the docks is fun too. My son was catching perch after perch. Perfect for kids!

In the Area:

We also got some great recommendations from the owners on things to do in the area. A few of our favorites were:

Cooks County Connection

Cooks Country Connection is an adorable little farm. The owner is so friendly it was like having an old friend give me a tour of their farm. My kids loved it here. Not only did that have fun, friendly, well cared for animals but they also have a huge playground! This was a really fun stop!

Homestead Mills

Homestead Mills is a working flour mill in the area. They also have a gift shop where you can buy the flour along with many other yummy bread flours, pancake mixes, and more!

Comet Theater

Comet Theater is known to be the longest continuous running move theater in Minnesota. It is a charming historic theatre that also has a great gift shop. There was a lot I liked in this store, great apparel and gifts.

We had the best time staying at White Eagle Resort on Lake Vermillion. It was everything we wanted and so much more. I highly recommend checking out this resort whether you are looking for a romantic vacation for two or a large family reunion. This resort really has it all! Check out White Eagle Resort for the perfect Midwest getaway.

Much Love & Happy Travels,
