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, MN, USA:
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.
