at the last minute, with warmer than expected weather forecasted, and a rare opening in my schedule I decided it was finally time to book a stay at the Green Gate Guest Houses in Biwabik MN. My wife had discovered the property a year ago and we have been dying to visit ever since.
Our expectations were high. Like I said, we had been thinking about this place for a year now, everything had been so over-hyped in our own minds that on the way up we promised we would allow for it to not be as great as we had decided it would be.
Well, it was better than we had ever imagined!
The house is beautiful, the craftsmanship is perfection, the decor is so perfectly relaxing. Honestly, I will never go anywhere else, this is officially my families northern retreat for as long as it's around. We're already planning a winter trip to do some FatBiking/Cross country skiing. I can't wait to go back!
Just another note, my 3 and 5yr olds LOVED the farm house. The beds being in the same area were perfect for them as sometimes kids have a hard time sleeping when we go away, but this layout of sleeping quarters allowed all to sleep very well and left us refreshed for our fun days of hiking/biking and visiting local shops.
And on yet another note: the owner Shawn is the best. I've decided he is my new family friend and I can't wait to speak with him more.
I have zero complaints about my stay, not even one tiny gripe. it was honestly the most relaxing family vacation I've ever had.
