Property description

Enjoy the Northwoods of Ely Minnesota in style. Our hand scribed full cedar log home was painstakingly built by local craftsman two years in the making. Over 2100 square feet of log home living space that is located on a large quiet bay of Eagles Nest Lake Three. Just 15 miles from Ely, Minnesota, this vacation spot is gated and very private with over 350 feet of lakeshore and two acres. This log home has 3 bedrooms, two full baths, kitchen, dining, foyer entry and L-shaped lakeside 3 season room and covered porch with a large gas grill. A full laundry room is located in the heated garage. Outdoors, a seasonal heated, enclosed in-ground pool is connected by a cedar walkway and outdoor deck. The lot is stepped but level and easy to get around. The master bedroom has its own private Jacuzzi tub and full bath. The attached deck overlooks the gazebo and pool area. Both extra bedrooms are off opposites sides of the home. The new large fireplace offers the feel of a fishing lodge, a relaxing spot anytime of the day or year with a panoramic view of the bay on Eagles Nest.

The four definite seasons of Minnesota brings forth new adventures. For the snowmobiling enthusiast, the Taconite Trail of the Minnesota Arrowhead Trail system is a short distance away. Cross country skiing abounds on the lakes and trails nearby and trails for hunting, hiking, biking and jogging are strategically located on thousands of State and Federal lands nearby. Swimming, canoeing, fishing and kayaking are summer favorites and we provide two docks and two covered motorized boat lifts. In respect for our neighbors and their desire for quiet privacy, we request that you do not bring jet skis or large boats. Small fishing type boats are welcomed. A canoe will be provided at no charge. Kayak rentals are available in Ely. We do have a pontoon boat that could be rented. Please let us know in advance of your requests.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Linda and I purchased this property in the fall of 2009. Being lifelong Ely residents, we immediately fell in love with this home on this quiet lake. When you relax in our home and just look around to the detail of the hand scribed logs, it is truly a work of art. Work and updates will continue throughout this year. We are very excited about the updates that have been done in such a short time. We had a new lodge-style gas fireplace installed replacing a wood stove that was used for supplemental heating. We also removed a large wall that was blocking the view of the lake from the dining area and kitchen. All new beds, mattresses and linens were purchased and installed along with new furniture for the dining and living area. We continue to update with new furniture and that will be done in the very near future. Other plans for this year include more landscaping, a lakeside deck, a new sauna and hot tub system down by the lake and another free standing fireplace to be installed in our seasonal porch. Our commitment to you is to have you enjoy our area and not to have any worries while you are here. Your relaxation and great family time is important to us as it is to you. We do look forward to hearing from you and if you have any questions or concerns, please email or call us.

Why the Owner Chose Ely, MN, USA:
We love our area and enjoy the safe quiet atmosphere here at Eagles Nest. We are just 20 minutes from our home, Ely, Minnesota and the very special place it has become. Ely caters to family and in that it is a special place alone. You are safe here and the many shops, special eateries and of course the close proximity to the BWCA. Many great life lessons can be experienced here, a very special time for you and your family's memories!

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
The privacy, peace and quiet are the things that readily come to mind. We are located about one mile from the end of the Swanson Shore's Road. Just 1/2 mile down the road, The Bearhead State Park System borders the west side of the road. There are only about 12 cabins and homes past our home insuring limited traffic. We are located on a very quiet bay and our closest neighbor is 1500 feet away. Fishing is also great here and the home in the winter affords great views of the Aurora Borealis dancing on the night sky.
