Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Growing up in Minneapolis, I was fortunate to have friends with cabins in northern Minnesota, and had many opportunities to experience all that a summer weekend up north could offer. I wanted to provide this same opportunity for my own family, and was lucky to purchase our cabin on White Iron Lake in Ely in 2006. It was one of the best decisions we ever made, and has produced some of our very best family memories. Now that our kids are in college, we'd love to provide the same kind of opportunity for families, friends and lovers to experience this great corner of the world--and the lake--as we have, and we think we've got just the perfect setup to do so. So c'mon up, the water's fine! Hope to see you soon.
