Lake Vermilion in St. Louis County MN is a bit of a drive north of Minneapolis, but is well worth it. This 39,271 acre body of water has less than half of it classified as littoral, and there is more structure, i.e. rock piles, points, coves, etc than you can shake a fishing pole at. Water clarity of this excellent walleye lake is four to ten feet, and the depth reaches its maximum at 76 feet.
According to the Northstar Regional MLS statistics, there are 13 Lake Vermilion lakeshore properties for sale at the time of this post. I am darn sure that there are more. Why? There are a lot of Realtors out there that can’t spell, and if they spelled “Vermilion” wrong, then their lake home listings won’t appear in the list. Don’t worry.. we will find those listings for you anyway if you give us a call.
At Home on Vermillion Lake
Right now, you can spend 89k to 1.2M on Vermilion lakefront property, and if you think you would like to spend something in between those numbers, there are a few good choices for you. Of course, if you want to spend 1M on a nice two story home with panoramic views of the lake, a gourmet kitchen with hickory cabinets, and all that upscale kind of stuff, I am not going to talk you out of it. But, I am here to tell you that you can get something very nice for about half that amount, with over 150 feet of St Louis County MN lakeshore and just as many walleyes for you to catch.
