Why Shawn Callahan chose Biwabik
I built these vacation homes on our historic 13 acre homestead to provide a one-of-a-kind lodging option for the many travelers to this area.

This was a repeat visit for us. We've stayed there several times. Every year we are newly impressed by Shawn's attention to detail. He is a charming host. He keeps his properties in excellent condition and he is very accommodating. His creativity is a wonder to behold. The property is a lovely setting in the midst of nature and yet close to activities.
The Barn House - Annual Vacation
We have had such an amazing annual vacation to the Barn Home at Green Gate Houses! The home is warm, inviting and just beautiful. Highly, highly recommend this home! Shawn is amazing caretaker and host!
It was fun to stay at this unique property while we were at Giant's Ridge for a ski race. Last year we stayed in the farmhouse. Both properties are well equipped and comfy. We will be back for sure!
Great place to stay, ski, play in the snow and relax!
We love staying at green gate. This was our third time. The barn is impeccably built and furnished.
The Green Gate barn home is perfectly charming!
Our long NYE weekend at Green Gate was just what my family needed. The barn home is so charming! Shawn has done a fantastic job, paying attention to even the smallest details. The house is well-appointed with in-floor heating, induction cooktop, high-efficiency dishwasher, and clawfoot tub to name a few. We were never cold despite overnight temps dipping as low as -27 degrees during our stay. The grounds are gorgeous, as well. An Instagrammer's dream come true. :) We really enjoyed exploring, playing in the snow, toasting marshmallows by the campfire, and even a little winter grilling. Shawn made the entire stay very easy and comfortable. We felt right at home. I am counting down the days until our next visit!
Extremely enjoyable stay. Loved it!
The barn home is very comfortable and well appointed. Our party of four adults stayed here for a weekend Golf outing. The kitchen is very well stocked, including ample dishes, pans and spices. The beds are comfortable, and the kitchen table cannot be beat. Take time to enjoy the fire pit with the free wood and kindling. The owner, Shawn, is very responsive.
