About Anne and Jim Gattman
We are a busy family with three active and adventurous boys and a dog. We were first introduced to Ely and White Iron Lake years ago by dear friends. We live in St. Paul and are thrilled to have a place in the woods for our children to explore and for us to escape to. We love the unique beauty of the Ely area and the way coming here takes us completely away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. We welcome you and hope you, too, will enjoy our home.
Anne and Jim Gattman purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Anne and Jim Gattman chose Ely
Our cabin was originally the canoe outfitters building for a family resort. We loved its size and openness, and with help from friends we were able to create a vision to turn it into a great lake home. We are grateful to be part of the White Iron Beach Resort community. Our children love to roam around, meet up with other children and enjoy all that the resort has to offer. We appreciate the nearness to Ely while still being able to get away to a beautiful spot in the woods. The Ely area and the BWCA are wild and free and full of great opportunities to explore nature and make great memories.
What makes this Cabin unique
We welcome you to enjoy the privacy and convenience and comfort of a new cabin (with historic roots) while taking advantage of the benefits of the White Iron Beach Resort. The beach is a quick walk down the hill from our cabin. You can be right in the mix or enjoy more privacy on the deck.

Perfect cabin to enjoy a family vacation at!
We enjoyed everything about this cabin! Being able to enjoy the resort amenities was a bonus and the kids had a ton of fun! We cannot wait to book our next vacation here!
Amazing cabin. Wonderful resort
We loved the cabin and lake was so beautiful. The only complaint was having to leave so soon. We would come break again. Amazing owners and cabin
Thank you for your kind review. I am happy it all worked out for you. Hopefully you'll find your way to Ely and Brother Bear Lodge again. Happy summer! Anne
We spent Thanksgiving weekend here. What an absolute perfect get away!
I highly recommend this home for large families. We have five children, four are married, and we have one grandchild. There are lovely bedrooms and a large gathering space. We celebrated Thanksgiving in the winter wonderland! What a memorable experience.
Thanks, Janet, for your review of our cabin. I am very happy that you and your family had a fun stay. Happy Holidays to you all!
clean and nice
The cabin was clean and very nice when we arrived. Can hold a lot of people. Grounds were clean. Fire pit is shared. A short walk to lake. Lots of canoes and kayaks to use.
A gem of a cabin in Ely!
We recently stayed at Brother Bear Lodge and had such a good time. The cabin is laid out and furnished beautifully, and with four bedrooms and two full baths, it would be great for extended families, women’s weekends, reunions, or guys’ retreat. While offering plenty of room for everybody, it has a warm, cozy feeling, not to mention a very nice sauna. We felt “at home” the second we walked in.
Fishing and hiking are just outside the door, and shopping and eating spots are only 10 minutes away in Ely (although you’d never know you’re that close). There’s all sorts of activities for kids on the beach and in the main lodge of the White Iron Resort. It was so nice to sit on the deck and gaze at the lake and the stars at night. We even tried to see who could find the most satellites.
We had a wonderful time and can’t wait to return, but we’ll definitely plan on staying longer. There are so many places to explore and it was so nice coming back to such a comfortable cabin and cooking dinner together in the huge, open kitchen. Thank you for letting us share the beauty and comfort of your retreat!
Loved this cabin and the owners are awesome.
We came to Ely from Portland, Oregon for a wedding, and booked this cabin to share with three families. The owners live near Minneapolis/St Paul, so it is managed through a little resort nearby. We arrived and fell in love with the cabin immediately. It has so much space, was tastefully and charmingly decorated, and the layout is perfect. We kept cozy with the fireplace in the main area, and the boys watched football in the four season porch (there's a little fireplace in there too.) It rained for our entire stay, and our girls (1.5 and 3.5) had lots of space to play and stretch out. The kitchen is well stocked, and my mother even baked all of the pies for the wedding in the oven. We loved everything about this place and are looking for an excuse to come back. Thanks for the great hospitality, Jim and Anne! We love Brother Bear Lodge!
Ely is a charming town that serves as an entry point for the amazing Boundary Waters Canoe Area. Ely has something for everyone...outfitters, great shops and restaurants and it is home to the International Wolf Center and the American Bear Center. Ely has a strong history as a forestry and mining town and shares the beautiful forests and rock of the Iron Range.
