How to get here….

(directions for the directionally impaired)

Directions are not really my thing but here we go!  (In my defense, all mileages are approximate…if you have real numbers let me know!)

From the South – Duluth, Eveleth, Virginia, etc

Take Hwy 53 north (Cook is approx 27 miles north of Virginia).  When in Cook, take a right on 2nd Street (across from Zup’s grocery store).  Follow 2nd Street approx 1 mile (it becomes Vermilion Drive without you having to do a thing!)  We are the 4th   driveway on the left once you pass the county highway 115 intersection.

From the North – International Falls, Orr, etc

Take Hwy 53 south (Cook is approx 18 miles south of Orr).  Take a left off of highway 53 onto county highway 115 (aka Ashawa Road) approx 1.5 miles.  At the stop sign, hang a left onto hwy 24 (aka Vermilion Drive).  We are the 4th driveway on the left.

From the East – Ely, Tower, etc.

Take 169 south (approx 5 miles from Tower), turn right onto county highway 115 (aka 77)(as if you were going to Fortune Bay Resort / Casino).  Follow 115 (again…aka hwy 77) approx 20 miles.  Take a right at the stop sign onto highway 24 (aka Vermilion Drive).  We are the 4th driveway on the left.

Tah – Dah!!!  You are here!
