                      Location

                      Birch Lake is known for trophy walleyes, forested shores, hundreds of secluded bays, and abundant wildlife such as eagles, bears, and moose. Enjoy evening loon serenades and the occasional howling of wolves. Birch Lake is ideal for boating, camping, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, and swimming.

                      Nearby Ely, MN: Enjoy the many amenities of this unique destination town located on the border of the BWCAW, including many shops, restaurants, museums and exhibits. Well-known as the home of the International Wolf Center, the North American Bear Center, and the Dorothy Molter Museum. Tours of the nearby Soudan Underground Mine State Park offer a glimpse into the world of underground mining and an underground physics lab.

                      Don’t miss Ely’s annual Blueberry Art Festival, July 27-29th.

                      Golf: Make time for a round of golf at the local Babbitt Golf Course, or at one of the area’s three championship golf courses – The Legend and the Quarry at Giants Ridge, and the Wilderness at Fortune Bay.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: We built our cabin in 2000 after owning our lakeshore since 1988. We use it throughout much of the year, but spend time visiting out-of-state family in July, so thought it would be a good opportunity to rent it out during this time to help pay the property taxes!

                      Why the Owner Chose Ely:
                      Birch Lake is amazing- most of the lakeshore is Superior National Forest, with numerous islands and countless bays and inlets for walleye fishing, boating and swimming. It has a very private, north woods feel. Of all the lakes we have visited over the years, Birch Lake has always been our very favorite get-away destination- and a perfect place for a family cabin!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Enjoy a walk or mountain bike ride on the 2 mile gravel road through the woods. Spend a lazy afternoon fishing or swimming from the dock, or kayaking to the nearby island, followed by a nap in the hammock. Watch the sun set from a bench on the point, or listen to the loons while you sit by the campfire in the evening.
