About Sean McCauley
Sean and Joselyn met in the Bay Area, but soon after getting married, Sean managed to drag Joselyn back to his native Minnesota. As a Californian, she was skeptical at first, but fell in love with the North Woods after her first dogsledding adventure. Today they live in Minneapolis with their three wonderful kids, but get up North every chance they get.
Sean McCauley purchased this Cabin in 2006
Why Sean McCauley chose Ely
Joselyn and I found ourselves returning to Ely again and again, mostly the YMCA Camp DuNord. Over the years, we started to look at properties, including another one on Everett Lake but could never find anything that was just right. Ironically, we had noticed our cabin a number of times as we drove the Echo Trail, commenting on how nice it looked. Then one day in June 2006, I was browsing the Bear Island Land Co. website and found this place for sale. Joselyn was out of town, so I called the realtor, packed his camping gear and drove up an hour later. I made an offer the next day. We haven't regretted it for a moment, and can't believe our luck to own such a place.

Perfect accommodations for our family of eight. The cabin was spacious and warm with games after dinner next to a warm fire burning in the kitchen fireplace. Lots of hiking options in the Ely area and the snow this weekend was a bonus. Enjoyed the sauna after our long hikes in the woods.
Lovely property surrounded by stunning beauty
We had a lovely time staying at the McCauley's cabin. This cabin is so well built, sturdy, beautiful, spacious and cozy, all at the same time. Being right on Everett Lake meant we could canoe on numerous lakes without ever having to put the canoe on our car-delightful. The bedrooms are lovely and the kitchen is large, making it easy to prepare meals for our group at the end of the day. Lots of board games available for evening entertainment, and plenty of books to help get acquainted with the local plants and wildlife as well as the lakes of the BWCA. Highly, highly recommend. I hope to stay there again soon -- maybe for a spring canoe trip.
We had a great time "up north". The cabin is awesome and has everything you would need. The Aussie family thought it was awesome. Enjoyed some fishing, games and fun just hanging out. Visited the bear center and the world center. Would highly recommend staying here. Thanks for the memories!
Judy - thanks for the kind words! We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and of course are welcome back any time.
This is the second year we’ve stayed at this cabin. The lake is very private and quiet. We love being able to kayak and paddle board without worrying about boats speeding by. The cabin is also well equipped and it’s not too far to town. There are also hiking trails close by.
Thanks Mike - you are welcome any time!
A Quiet Place to Relax
We had a nice time relaxing at this cabin. The lake is small, and there are very few people nearby, so it is very quiet. This makes for a great experience if you want to hop in a canoe and enjoy the lake. Evrything you need to make meals is provided, and Ely is a quick drive away if you want to have dinner on the town. There is plenty of room in this cabin, so you won't feel crowded. The steam sauna in the basement is a great addition as well. Everything was great, as we expected it to be.
We enjoyed the location of this cabin. We also enjoyed the opportunity it presented to get to multiple lakes via canoe/portage. We took a few more day trips into the BWCA and you are very close to entry points on the west side. It was close enough to town so we could also experience the Blueberry Festival....which was a blast. We would highly recommend this cabin.
