Owner info

Year Purchased: 2016

About the owner: Married 28 years, Husband is a MN native, Wife is a CA native- She fishes, he hunts- she loves fine arts, antiquities and treasures, he loves simplicity. She's an only child and never leaving California while he's one of many so this is their slice of paradise. It's a true asylum and reprieve from the fast pace of the city. A place to commune with nature and rekindle with your soul.

Why the Owner Chose Ely, MN, USA:
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 firt time I saw a bald eagle in the wild and outside of a zoo it took my breath away.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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.
