Where you’ll be

Ely, Minnesota, United States

Our neighborhood is quiet. Safe.
The cabin is less than half a mile to family friendly, sandy, public beach at Semer Park.

We share the point with Superior National Forest Sea Plane Base. You may hear planes taking off and landing, especially during fire season.

Ely is on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, the largest protected wilderness east of the Rockies. Over 1 million acres of pristine forest, lakes, rivers, untouched by civilization, and deemed a no fly zone for commercial aircraft. There is little to no light pollution in our area.

We are spouses, Chrissie and Rich, two public school teachers in Rochester, Minnesota and we love Ely. We bought this home with the dream of retiring here. We come up to Ely every chance we get and were even married on Bass Lake Trail in 2011. We love sharing our enthusiasm for this area with friends and family and enjoy hosting Airbnb guests. Our favorite things to do in Ely include visiting family and friends, hiking, kayaking, snow shoeing, snowmobiling, riding the pontoon at dusk, staring at the lake, and hosting friends for dinner and games.
