In terms of finding specific properties online, the Iron Range Region begins at the St. Louis County line on the west and extends nearly over to Duluth on the east, and all the way up to the Canadian Border. Taking in communities such as Hibbing and Side Lake near its southern border, to Lake Vermilion, Hoyt Lakes and the Canadian Border Lakes of Crane, Kabetogama and Rainy, it puts forth a wide-ranging supply of waterfront real estate options, from small soft basin lakes around the Range communities, to the Canadian Shield formations up north. As the largest county in the United States east of the Mississippi River, St. Louis County can be a tough one to drive around in search of “For Sale” signs!
The larger water bodies like Lake Vermilion and Rainy Lake are well-known around many parts of the United States for extraordinary scenery, great fishing, and extreme solitude…mainly because of their size. But there are also some excellent lake properties available on lakes like Sturgeon Lake in the Side Lake Area; Esquagama Lake near Biwabik; Sand Lake north of Virginia; and Pelican, Ash and Echo Lakes near Orr – along with plenty of lakefront real estate on hundreds of lakes that aren’t as well known.
So we have tried to help you in your search by breaking down the micro areas throughout this vast region, and the uniqueness of each.
