I’m just off the lake. I’m building new cabin and moving part of old and tearing down the rest this spring. So some construction being done.
Made a nice spot for a trailer and possibly more. Several tent pads and possibly some amenities available. I plan to run at least 30 amp service to the main pad I had made for the trailer. I haven’t tested, but I have a sewage pipe run out to that spot. As will run a water line.
Just be respectful with noise, pets, trash, etc. I’ll do my best to accommodate. But I might be working, at a fire call or meeting. So be patient. Pick up dog poop, cigarette butts, general trash. If I’m able I’ll help get rid of your bagged trash. I’ll let you know where and what you can burn in the fire pit. Let me know your needs ahead of time and I’ll do what I can to accommodate you. Garage is off limited unless invited.
We need to see if our dogs are compatible.
Generators should be off after 10 PM
I guess it depends on when and who else is here. But we need to discuss your needs vs what is going on here. My kids come in the summer some. My girls are running the grandmas marathon...
And at the same time I’ll respect your space.
I’ll have a list of any additional rules...
You’ll have to come down off blacktop on a well maintained gravel road. It can be soft in the spring when the ice is coming off. Small hill on driveway with level spots to park. Large rigs come down our road, but caution turning in as the shoulders drop as coming off blacktop. Just turn wide.
Some hanging trees but all avoidable.
I have a big driveway area
Please confirm when you will be here before leaving home or wherever yoU are coming from.
Fred’s meats... mmm, bacon! Sorry can’t list it all. Haha.
A favorite for us is the Ely blueberry festival (100 miles but worth it.)
Iron Mine lookouts and tours.
Many fishing lakes.
70 miles to Duluth... waterfront, north shore, train museum, shops...
Great bike trails and on a good atv trail. Note: atv’s are legal to ride on county roads. Check registration requirements at MN DNR.
Disclaimer: I have lots of childhood memories of this location so prepare for my bias review.
Fred’s bacon is the best, we load up on bacon and other meat candy when we head home each season.
The property is situated near two public beach areas and a primitive sandy boat launch. Great views, and very seasonal weather. Usually cool mornings and in the summer humid and warm days. In the spring, late summer and fall the highs rarely go over the 70s. Not what you expect in northern Minnesota.
Lots of projects underway on the property, I tend to lend a hand during my extended stays to complete at least one major project, while leaving enough time to fish and play with family on the lake.
I would recommend sharing the memories I’ve made over the years with anyone that needs a spot to stay for the night.
We spent a restful 3 days here. Our host was most interesting and accommodating, building a fire each night, offering the use of a canoe in the lake below, and just being a nice neighbor. He has various projects and construction around the property, but the parking pad is nestled in the trees, overlooking the lake and was perfect for us.
Very accommodating host. Enjoyed spending time with him and his friendly dog. Level shady spot right near lake. Would stay here again.
I had a fine time with Ben. A fountain of north country wisdom. We ate good, as promised. Fred's meat market just down the road has an abundance of treasures. I loaded up before I left the area. He let me stay an extra night when plans got changed, as they will. Nice flat area with full hookups. Easy in and out.
