Property description

The Green Gate Barn Home is a one of two exceptional vacation rentals on a private 13 acre farmstead (see The Green Gate Farmhouse, our other vacation rental offering). We are conveniently located adjacent to the Giants Ridge Recreation Area. Our guests enjoy direct access to the Mesabi Bike Trail, skiing and golfing at Giants Ridge, and lounging at the beaches of Embarrass Lake just a short walk from our door. We are a year-round destination, catering to nordic and alpine skiers, cyclists, paddlers, golfers and those simply choosing to relax at our historic homestead retreat.

Green Gate is a truly unique barn home, combining all the modern amenities with the rustic charm of the original 1935 hay barn that inspired the project. The 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom guest house can accommodate up to 6 people. A well-commissioned kitchen, dining room, and comfortable lounge area with cable TV and WiFi make Green Gate your home-away-from-home. Guests can also enjoy campfires, explore the surrounding countryside, or relax at a lake beach just a few minutes away.

Green Gate Guest Houses is a sustainable lodging facility. We support sustainable tourism by following strict green building standards, choosing environmentally-conscious purchases, adopting energy conservation and renewable energy technologies, using environmentally friendly products and supporting non-motorized recreation.

Located 1.5 miles from Biwabik and 3 miles from Giants Ridge Golf and Ski Resort. Direct access to the Mesabi Bike Trail and Snowmobile Trails. Water access for swimming and paddling nearby, and 1/4 mile from Superior National Forest Scenic Byway.
