Our country farm house is situated on 40 acres in the middle of hay fields lined with trees. The yard has a patio with some yard chairs, and a deck with bench. The house has central air conditioning. Private and quiet neighborhood. We are about 20 minutes from Giants Ridge (ski and golf), Duluth is only an hour away, we are close enough to the North Shore for a day trip of hiking, biking, and site seeing. Twenty minutes from the Zim Bog Bird Sanctuary. Bike trails are easily accessible.
“This place is exceptional. I'll try not to be too effusive, but it was great. Yes, it looks old in the pictures (green carpet!) but that carpet is super clean and soft. We used to take a trip to my grandparent's cabin every summer. This place felt exactly like that. And this place was super clean. There are five beds in the house. Can't get that at a hotel. It's in the middle of nowhere, but that's a selling point. If you want to be near the action, go to Duluth. Lake Ore-Be-Gone is like 15 minutes away and is an awesome little swimming spot. We went over to Black Beach in Silver Bay for an afternoon. It's a little over an hour drive, but that's no big deal. And the roads near the house are all mostly new. A lot of fresh black top or wide, smooth gravel. If you're driving up, probably wanna save a little space for a pillow as the ones there are pretty thin. But honestly, that's the only negative I can think of in the whole place. We'll certainly go back.”
Beautifully updated 1890s hand hewn log cabin.
“The Green Gate Guest Houses are easily the most stylish and well equipped rentals in the area. We were blown away by the efficiency of the design, the stylish spaces, amenities, and the location. The property felt like we had our own private slice of paradise and we were still so close to all of the area's best attractions. A five minute walk put us on the most scenic bike path in northern Minnesota, just a hop skip and jump from multiple lakes, restaurants and attractions. We are already planning our return.”

“My wife and I were looking for relaxing weekend getaway to the iron range area. Jackie's place was perfect. From the thoughtful welcome card to the delicious porridge (my wife wants the recipe), we felt like we were at home the second we stepped in. Check in was easy and Jackie was super responsive to any questions we had. Bonus for me...2 Castle Danger beers in the fridge. We are already discussing our next visit! Thank you!”
