About the Property
Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
The cabin has three bedrooms plus a loft, sleeping up to 10. It has two fireplaces, two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, large deck and great views of Everett Lake.
The home is on the Echo Trail, close to the boundary waters and to Lake Burntside. In the summer, you can canoe across Everett and short portage will take you into Twin Lakes, the Dead River and Lake Burntside. Another portage on the property will take you into beautiful Fenske Lake. There is a beaver damn on the property and other wildlife abounds in the area. Two aluminum canoes provided.
In the winter, the house is well insulated and easy to heat. Take advantage of abundant cross-country skiing and snow-mobiling on the Little Grassy Trail. Listen for wolves and if you are lucky, watch the Northern Lights.
NEW: Finnish Sauna in the basement. Relax in our traditional cedar sauna before going to bed. If you're brave - run out into the snow!
Please see our website for more photos and information.
NOTE: Everett Lake has a 10 HP limit on motorboats, and we respect our neighbors desire for quiet and privacy. No jetskis, ATVs or large motor boats please! This is a very quiet setting, and these types of motorized vehicles are out of character for the Echo Trail.

About the owner: Sean and Joselyn met in the Bay Area, but soon after getting married, Sean managed to drag Joselyn back to his native Minnesota. As a Californian, she was skeptical at first, but fell in love with the North Woods after her first dogsledding adventure. Today they live in Minneapolis with their three wonderful kids, but get up North every chance they get.
Why the Owner Chose Ely, MN, USA:
Joselyn and I found ourselves returning to Ely again and again, mostly the YMCA Camp DuNord. Over the years, we started to look at properties, including another one on Everett Lake but could never find anything that was just right. Ironically, we had noticed our cabin a number of times as we drove the Echo Trail, commenting on how nice it looked. Then one day in June 2006, I was browsing the Bear Island Land Co. website and found this place for sale. Joselyn was out of town, so I called the realtor, packed his camping gear and drove up an hour later. I made an offer the next day. We haven't regretted it for a moment, and can't believe our luck to own such a place.
