40 ft dock/west view in wind protected cove for your boat. Walk out, grab a chair, and enjoy a tranquil view and/or toss out a line for cruising pike. Short paddle north passing only 3 piers before entering the South Kawishiwi River. And with just a bit more of a paddle to enter the BWCA.

White Iron is known for its high numbers of walleye, pike, and crappie due to the inflow of water from the Kawishiwi. Bring back some keepers, cook on charcoal grill or on the fire pit.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: Love the outdoors and living off the land in Ely is a future dream.

Why the Owner Chose Ely, MN, USA:
Would you believe me if I told you this property found us? A perfect compromise between me and hubby....upscale inside while remote outside.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Part of property is considered Federal Forest..a quiet place to wander or truly explore. Enjoy NW sunset views from main floor balcony or just sit on a boulder to watch the sun setting. While we are paddlers more than boaters, both are allowed on White Iron Lake which connects with Farm Lake, South Farm Lake, and Garden Lake. An easy paddle to Kawishiwi River is the perfect destination with ability to canoe direct into the BWCA...a dream come true. While only 7 miles into Ely, our cabin feels like a million miles from civilization.
