There is a house five miles N.E. of Ely Minnesota that will never win any beauty contest, but is a wonderful summer home and can be used as a year around home. It is less than 12 miles from the Canadian Border and near the BWCA. The house sits on 4+ wooded acres and has approximately 550' of shoreline on Cedar Lake, with a beautiful point jutting out into the lake. The house is big, almost 3,500 sq. ft., has 3 huge bedrooms, two baths an office/den/bonus room, sun room entry, and the downstairs bath has a sauna. The great room is 20' x 50', with a conversation area, lake view area, entertainment nook, and a loft library/bunk area. The great room windows are new, two stories tall, and overlook the lake. Because the windows are so large and face north, they let in lot of light without the problems that go along with direct sunlight. There are 2 forced air furnaces, one burns oil and the other burns wood and are connected so they can be used together or separately. The kitchen dining area has ceiling heat panels, much of the house has electric baseboard heat, and there is a little wood stove for chilly mornings. There are 2 "off peak" 50 gal. electric water heaters and a water softener.
There are 2 garages, one is 26' x 26' and the other is 24' x 24' so there is plenty room for cars and toys. The 26' x 26' Garage is wired with multiple outlets and drop downs so it may be used a workshop. Out on the point there is a 14' x 16' aluminum bunkhouse and a fire pit. The 36' "L" shaped crib dock is permanent and never needs to be removed from the lake or reinstalled. The dock is in a deep water notch harbor and is almost completely protected from the wind. If you can call 10' of sand a beach, then there is a beach.
