Anastasia Schmoll purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Anastasia Schmoll chose Ely
As a green Broker I valued being surrounded by National Forest and being off the grid. I wanted to be by a lake but didn't want a lake shore spotted with homes every few feet. This property is also elevated above the tree line and provides for excellent bird watching. The first time I saw a bald eagle in the wild and outside of a zoo it took my breath away.
What makes this Cabin unique
There is satisfaction to living off the grid, even if its just for a few days. To know that you are not leaving a carbon foot print on the earth. Yet as such, staying in a home that feels so plush and comfortable that you almost forget you are off the grid. I french press my coffee in the morning as the stove works off the propane so there's no need for the generator with the best tasting well water I stored in containers upon arrival! It puts Avian to shame. Sometimes the pine Marten is on the patio rail looking for snacks, I hear he's viscous, I think he's cute! He loves fresh fish!

Amazing stars and quiet
We had a wonderful visit. Besides backpacking in the wilderness, this is quietest place I've spent a night. The stars were magnificent since there was no other light to be seen. I haven't viewed the Milky Way as well since moving from Montana. The views from the decks were expansive. Bird watching was fun. Bed in master was very comfortable. Generator was easy to turn on the few times we used it. My only suggestion... Having a couple of hot pads available would be helpful.
Beautiful & Secluded
Beautiful cabin, great for a large group, short walk/drive to secluded Nels Lake, fishing poles and canoes for use, so fun! This is the ideal place if you truly want to be out in the woods; we didn't see or hear any signs of human life the whole weekend, it was great! Owner is easy to talk to and responds promptly to emails/texts. It was fun being off the grid!
Echo Trail is the place to be, this is the Cabin in the center of the BWCA and the entrance to it all. Nels Lake is the best kept secret for great fishing. You want to get more rural, you can camp off the shoreline of Nels Lake, The beauty of this lake is that there are no home on it so you can fish and canoe is serious serenity!
