Re-Booking: We have experienced a very high rate of rebookings.  We provide guests at check-out an opportunity to rebook the same cabin and time period for the next year-- BEFORE accepting any other reservations. That reservation will have to be secured with a deposit at check out time to confirm the reservation.

Please plan your arrival to coincide with check-in time. During non-prime season early check in and later check out times can be adjusted with prior request. 

Deposits: A deposit of $300 is required for each weekly cabin rental. (Exceptions are Aerie and Norway cabins which require a $600 deposit) Partial weeks require 50% of the normal deposit. Receipt of your deposit will confirm your reservation. A deposit must be received within 7 days of booking your reservation either by credit card or check. Please mail deposits: Vermilion Dam Lodge, PO Box 1105 Cook, MN, 55723. Remaining balance is due prior to check out.

Cancellations: Receipt of your deposit guarantees that space is reserved for you. In return you are financially responsible for the cost of the entire reservation. No refunds for early check outs.  Full payment is owed if you cancel less than 90 days prior to your reservation arrival date. Reservation cancellations that fall 90 days or more from scheduled arrival date will be entitled to a deposit refund minus a $50 service fee.

PET POLICY: With respect to other guests, we would like to encourage our guests to leave their pets at home. However, we do have some cabins that
allow pets: (Fishing Quarters West and East, Sandcastle, and Musky Hut.)  Only one pet is allowed per cabin. Pet fee of $35/day or $200/week will apply. We reserve the right to not accept certain breeds and large size animals. Guests bringing pets are always required to keep them on a leash and be responsible for the conduct and clean up while on resort grounds. No exceptions please. Guests that arrive with pets without prior approval or cabins that do not allow pets will be not be able to check in unless they board their pet in a local kennel.
