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 Biwabik
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).

This is a charming and cozy farmhouse that was the perfect winter getaway to enjoy the northwoods
This property was the perfect family getaway to relax and unwind in the northwoods. We spent a long weekend skiing, tubing, hiking, and cooking meals in the farmhouse kitchen. The space was warm and comfortable. The architecture and furnishings are charming and full of character. We will be back!
The farmhouse was so fun to stay in. We had 6 adults and had a great time!!!
Absolutely perfect in every way! Beautifully renovated with old world craftsmanship that is rare!
I needed extra accommodations for family members during Christmas and this was the best! Great location, beautiful grounds and super host! My family will be staying there again this summer for our family reunion. For a small town community Greengate is a huge find! I can't say enough about it! Thank you Shawn!
Beautiful unique property in a tranquil setting!!
Enjoyed staying in the Farmhouse! Love the history & tranquility of the setting!
Love this beautifully renovated farmhouse.
This is our 3rd year staying at the farmhouse. Wonderful amenities and very clean and well kept. Fabulous accommodations for our golf group.
Perfect family getaway
This was the second time we stayed at Greengate. The kids loved the grounds and checking for eggs every day, I loved the farmhouse, screened in porch and the attention to small details from the decorating to the functioning kitchen. Shawn has created an inviting, comfortable and trendy space. We highly recommend this serene property!
