About Jane Shallow and David Anderson
Jane is getting up there into the 50s now, but still like to canoe, kayak, hike, ski, birdwatch and snowshoe. Dave is getting up there too, but he can still outpaddle almost anyone. At least anyone he's met so far :)
Jane Shallow and David Anderson purchased this Cabin in 1999
Why Jane Shallow and David Anderson chose Ely
This gorgeous cabin is on a remote lake on the edge of the BWCA with large white pines, birch, spruce, fir, aspen and more recently some red oak. Clean water with wonderful bird and wildlife watching, fishing and swimming. Conservation easement permanently protects this 32 ace parcel. For getting away and unplugging.
What makes this Cabin unique
Noticing nature. Swimming in clean water. Miles of quiet paddling. Not being able to drive in and out with the car. Quiet enjoyment very near the Boundary Waters but still luxurious in comparison to camping. If you are uncertain of your abilities, or haven't experienced this area of the country but would like to, this is for you. We will take you in and out and make sure you are comfortable. Transport and guide can stay in a nearby cabin if needed.

Sanctuary at Shallow Bay - Triangle Lake!!!
This place is a little slice wilderness heaven on earth. The cabin is perfectly situated on 32 acres of stunning natural beauty and quiet. It's appointed with all the features our family wanted and needed; we wish we could have stayed longer. We love the balance of rustic living and luxury. You can paddle, swim, sauna, wildlife & bird watch, hike, all with easy access to the Kawishiwi and the BWCA, while staying in a gorgeous cabin and sleeping in a bed! Dave for offered our family the perfect amount of help and space. Thank you - thank you - we can hardly wait to go back!
The cabin, lake, service and amenities far exceeded our expectations! A big thanks to Jane, Dave and Sue for helping us make our family vacation a fabulous one!
Location is remote on a Boundary Waters buffer lake. Access to BWCA portage is 1/4 mile by water. Location is on the Fernberg Road out of Ely MN. Triangle Lake is clean, deep water, with many rocky islands and small bays. Address on this VRBO listing is not the actual address of the cabin. The cabin does not have an address because of its remoteness so I had to use an address in Ely to make the listing.
Property is remote. Access is by water with the nearest road 2.5 miles from the cabin. The nearest town is another 1/2 hour by road. Because of the distance to the nearest town, please consider whether any medical condition of the individual(s) in your group might make this unsuitable for your vacation rental. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dave Anderson at FrogpondLLC@yahoo.com. CABIN AVAILABLE FOR RENTAL MAY THROUGH OCTOBER for 7 days or more at a time.
