Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: Retired Vocational teacher / Welder / Welding Inspector / Peace Corps Volunteer

Why the Owner Chose Ely:
With 6 children in our family, we found the BWCAW to be a terrific family vacation area that we could afford. I couldn't think of a better area to retire in than a spot on a lake in the Ely area.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
I think I enjoy the solitude, privacy and the beauty of my small part of the lake most of all. It's an easy place to relax and just enjoy nature.
