We spent two days at the farmhouse and had an absolutely amazing time! We didn't really want to leave the beautiful house and comfortable surroundings --- but did manage to pull ourselves away for a 30 mile ride on The Mesabi Trail, a short hike at Lookout Mountain, and a cold beer at Flaimer's Bar (in Virginia).
The house is beautiful and has everything you need. The fire pit is a relaxing place to cook a meal, enjoy the crackling fire, and meet other guests. We don't have a Tesla (darn it) but loved that this property has a Tesla charger available. What a fun raodtrip for Tesla owners in the Minneapolis/Metro area!
Make sure to walk down by the river --- the pathway that Shane has built is really cool and the river is beautiful. If you're looking for groceries make the drive to Natural Harvest Food Coop in Virginia --- it's worth the drive!
We can't wait to go back and hopefully check out some of the other buildings on the property!
Our family of four (two teenage boys) and two other friends (teenage boy and his dad) stayed here for three nights right after Christmas. The accommodations were perfect. The property is conveniently located about 5 minutes from Giant's Ridge Ski Hill, and just as close to Biwabik. Hiking and cross country trails are nearby. The farmhouse was cozy and comfortable, we never even needed to use the wood stove. The kitchen was well equipped for all your cooking needs, including pretty much any spice you could use. The property is well maintained. Shawn was very helpful before and during our stay. We loved it so much, we are hoping to visit again in the summer. There appear to be lots of options for activities in the summer; hiking,biking, kayaking (the Embarrass river runs behind the house) and lake activities (Lake across the street).
