Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Our home is a 3 bedroom/3 bath 4 season lake home with absolutely amazing lake views!
This is a 2000 sq ft year-round home with open floor living area and lake views that will take your breath away! There is an electric sauna, an outdoor fire pit & an UNFINISHED 3 season porch.
Our home sits on 12 acres of wooded land and we have 250 feet of rocky shoreline across the road. We are a 10 minute drive from downtown Ely on Shagawa lake.

The space

****please be aware that our house does not have air conditioning ***

-our satellite internet is, roughly, 50 down and 12 up.
-you have your own dock. It can be accessed through the yard and across the street. (Where the lake is. You will see a small railroad tie trail you will walk down to get to the road). And you can see pictures of it as well.
-Garage parking (we use it for storage too, but you can easily fit one vehicle in there)
-Outdoor firepit (provide your own firewood)
-Cedar sauna (Electric, not wood)
-charcoal grill
-We are a dog friendly home. So feel free to bring any dog that is potty trained and well behaved. We have a couch cover, but feel free to bring your own as well.

The kitchen is large and open to the living room and dining room (the living room on this level is also what we call "the
sun room". Its all windows looking out on to the lake).
We have a gas top stove, oven (with convection), full size
fridge and a dishwasher. We will have items such as dish soap, dishwasher detergent, olive oil, sugar, spices, salt and pepper grinders, condiments, whole bean coffee grinder. If you find it in the fridge or cupboards, go a head and use it. Again, this is our home, so most of the pantry items you will need are there already.
We have well water, but provide a Brita filtered water dispenser. However, if you prefer to bring their own bottled water, we do have recycling. its under the microwave.
LIVING ROOM - on the main level we have what we call, "the sun room". There is no tv because the lake is more fascinating to us, haha. The couch and over sized chair here are SUPER comfortable, and its a great place to just relax and read a book. The lower level is where we have a large
smart TV with access to your Netflix and Amazon Prime, etc accounts. No cable
channels. Many board and card games are also available. They are under the TV.
3 BEDROOMS - There are no bedrooms on main floor, there are two upstairs, and one is a loft style bedroom (no dormer, so be careful you don't hit your head!) with a queen bed and the other is a master bedroom with a king sized bed. It is attached to the full bathroom. the 3rd bedroom (king bed) is in the lower level walk out next to the "tv room".

***Our 3 season porch is NOT finished! the floor is cement (with rugs), and the walls are studs. but the room is surrounded by windows, there is comfortable furniture out there that we use almost every morning to start our day and drink our coffee. When it rains, I get so comfortable I could nap! However, it is NOT finished, so you may see some bugs and etc. we do our best to keep pests at bay. so please keep the French doors to the house closed.
BATHROOMS - There is a half bathroom on main floor and full bath on second floor. A half bath is in the lower level, along with the electric sauna. The sauna is where we have the other shower in the house. And believe me, it SO
wonderful to turn on the sauna for 15 minutes or so, then go
in and shower (not to mention taking an ACTUAL sauna...bliss!).
Our lake shore is wooded, and there are several steps down to the dock where you can access the lake. However, it is a rocky shore, so be prepared with water shoes of some kind.
(please don't try to access the cabins by the lake).

Additionally, we have no blinds. Like.....none! Our home is so secluded there is NO ONE that could look in the windows. So we never added blinds. We love it! but some people may not.

Because we are IN THE WOODS, there may be spiders, ants, etc in the porch (because, again, its unfinished). but we do have a pest control company that sprays and we set traps and generally do our best to keep out what we want out!

Hi, Charlie and I have lived in Ely since 2005, but have been visiting Ely since 1995. We travel quite a bit and so decided to try to Airbnb our home when we are away. We hope you love it as much as we do!!
During your stay
Although we have our guests do self check in, Charlie and I (Heidi) are always available by phone. However, we have plenty of family/friends in town, so if you need someone to come out, we will send someone.
