About Shawn Callahan

I am a degreed professional (mechanical engineering as well as nutrition science) with a variety of talents and interests. In addition to a 'corporate' engineering career, i have worked in the natural foods industry (various roles over several years at a food co-op), nutritional counseling, and residential construction and design. For the past several years, i have been dedicated to the restoration of green gate guest houses- our one-of-a-kind lodging properties in northern mn.

Shawn Callahan purchased this farmhouse in 2002

Why Shawn Callahan chose Minnesota

Our 13 acre property was a former mining town, then a large family farm for much of the past century. In addition to the rich history of this property, it is also unique located on a private setting between the small town of Biwabik and the Giants Ridge Recreation Area.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Our property is bordered by the the Embarrass River, providing private water access to our guests for lounging and swimming. Two sandy beaches on nearby Embarrass Lake are within walking/biking distance. We are also located just a block off the Mesabi Bike Trail, 1 mile from The Quarry golf Course and 3 miles from Giants Ridge Ski Area (both nordic and alpine skiing/snowboarding and tubing options).

The best place to stay at the Ridge!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Shawn's Farmhouse for the past 2 winters and we absolutely LOVE it! It has been meticulously renovated and the decoration and design is awesome. Has everything you need and Shawn is a great host - if you have any questions at all, he is easy to reach. I just wish we could stay longer!

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great experience at the farmhouse. It was close to the slopes and ski trails. Our kids loved the bunks. My only complaint would be the extra firm bed. But we adjusted. We rented both the farmhouse and the barn with another family and it was great for together time and quiet time when needed. thanks for the wonderful stay!

Fabulous Farm!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the opportunity to stay at the Green Gate farmhouse for nine days. What a nice facility! The renovation on this property shows what a master craftsman can accomplish. The farmhouse has modern conveniences set in a well thought out design with nuances that keep the original feel and atmosphere.

Shawn Callahan couldn't have more gracious or accommodating. He made himself available to us throughout our stay and now we count him as a friend .

If you are visiting the North woods, I can't imagine you could arrange for better accommodations.

Fantastic weekend getaway in the farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

I don't often write reviews, but we had such a great, relaxing weekend in the farmhouse that I felt we should share.

The grounds and house are very clean, charming and well maintained. It was great having a fully equipped kitchen to work with, we made several meals and were not missing anything. Lots of space to walk around and explore outside, all of the buildings on the property have a ton of character and there are miles of trails within walking distance of the property. We would have done more hiking and exploring, but the house was so comfortable and inviting that we found it hard to leave. Great place to get away and relax while enjoying some amazing scenery.

Shawn was very responsive via text with any questions we had during our stay. He is very easy to work with and accommodating of his guests. I would highly recommend Green Gate Guest Houses to my friends and family.
