Ely house description

Cedar Rock Lodge is a one bedroom plus cabin located on a bluff along Shagawa Lake. Renovated in spring of 2012 it features all new appliances, new furniture and pillow top beds. In spring of 2013, a new four season porch was added and deck overlooking the islands. This custom cabin is a one of a kind gem tucked in the cedar trees offering a private escape. Built in the 1940’s by a local craftsman, this cabins exterior is a solid rock structure masoned from the Ely rock bed the cabin rests on. The interior features a coordinating stone fireplace. The original owner took pride in his craftsmanship and customized pine paneling, trim, window framing and built in cabinetry. In the spring of 2012, we began remodeling the historical cabin taking special care to preserve its beautiful bones and adding modern touches to enhance the look and feel. This cabins decor has a quaint feel that makes it a unique Northwood’s experience.
Currently, the cabin sleeps 6 people. It has a new pillow top queen bed in the master bedroom, new full size sleeper sofa's, and a full size pillow top murphy bed . The entire house has received new flooring and window treatments. The bathroom has a standard sized bathub/shower with new tiled walls and a massaging showerhead. The kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave and new appliances. The Sun porch overlooks the lake and walks out to a patio/fire pit area that the original owner built into the rock cliffs in the yard. The cabin has his and her bikes, games, puzzles, books, dishes, binoculars, and flat screen TV and dvd player. It is nicely appointed with the conveniences of home. You will have plenty of opportunities to view wildlife in the back yard. The cabin has a family of ducks that often reside in the tall grass along the shore, chipmunks that can be hand feed on the deck, and loons swimming in the Bay. Tucked in the woods on a rock bluff this location is about as secluded as you can get without a boat and still within minutes to local dining and amenities. Our guests will be greeted with a special care basket filled with local items such as locally roasted coffee, all natural snacks, and coupons to make your stay with us a memorable one. Friday to Friday rentals only with minimum one week stay for Summer 2014 . Saturday to Saturday starting in September.

                          Year Purchased: 2012

                          About: This cabin has been in our family for 30 years. It was the Northwoods Camp where 4 generations learned to love and appreciate the simpler things in life. In 2011 the owner passed and the cabin was cared for by its estate. Our family missed the traditions and we purchased the cabin in the early spring of 2012. Dan is an engineer at Polaris Industries, Sinnamon owns a clothing store, and Amelia is nine years old. Three loving dogs complete our family. We live 5 hours away and life is busy. We love our escapes to the cabin to get away from it all. Dan enjoys walleye fishing on Shagawa Lake, Amelia loves exploring the islands and Semers Park and Sinnamon always makes time to shop, go to the spa and dine at the downtown businesses. In the evenings, we like to sit by the fire and listen to the loons. We can't make it to the cabin as much as we like so we have opened our doors to guests to help them escape to the untouched northwoods that we call our home away from home.

                          Why Ely:
                          As many stories begin the history of Cedar Rock Lodge is a tale of love and love lost. In the early 1940’s the lakeshore of Schafer Bay and surrounding area was a cow pasture. A husband and wife moved into the area and begin construction of a new home on the rocky ravine. Saima purchased the land for $1.00 and an undisclosed duty titled on the abstract as personal services. The couple begin their life together in this home but, as years past Saima’s heart was no longer in the marriage This homestead still exists south of Cedar Rock Lodge on the adjacent property. A fire swept through the area and changed the look of the home in 1945. Saima rebuilt the home after the fire but the couple’s relationship was not able to be saved. They separated their assets and divided the property. The man of the house was still very much in love with Saima but she had other interests. On the edge of the property line, he built a garage with an apartment above where he lived and kept a watchful eye on his ex- love Saima. The house and garage still remain standing after renovations on the adjoining lot to Cedar Rock Lodge. As you can about imagine, Saima did not like the constant supervision and him watching over the coming and goings on the property. There was not only a battle taking place on the two properties but the United States was at war. Saima’s ex-husband was sent away to defend the country while Saima was planning her attack on the home front. The land that Cedar Rock sits on was a huge rock outcropping. The rock bluffs overlooking Shagawa Lake was a feature Saima knew her ex- husband cherished. He gave her this land in the divorce thinking it would never be possible to construct a home on. While he was away at war, she had the rock blasted and her new love masoned the home out of the rock. When the soldier returned life was much different for him. He continued living next door into his 80's watching over Siama.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          * Newely Remodeled Property * Private Lakeshore and Dock * Cabin is at the end of a road and very private. * Minutes to down town shops, dining, city and national parks, hiking, snowmobiling, biking, boat rentals, canoeing, and nature watching. * Laundry on site This is a one of a kind property. As you drive along the windy road along the shoeline that leads to the cabin you discover the private escape tucked in the tall cedar trees on a huge rock ridge. The cobblestone sidewalk is as old as the cabin and the covered patio welcomes you to step inside. You unlock the door to get a peek of the stone firplace in the family room. A comfy leather sofa waits for you to get cozy. The french doors lead you to a untouched private yard high above the lake with pinecone and needles blanket perfect for hiking up the cliff. A quaint bedroom with a lakeview is where you will lay your head. The solid wood antique door in the kitchen opens to a sunroom with the most amazing view of the islands. Step outside onto the deck and take a deep breathe of the fresh air, relax and enjoy because this is your life for the next week.

This property connects to City of Ely land that is unsettled.  If you have a good sense of direction a walk in the woods is awesome.  Not for kids or inexperienced hikers.
