Jasper Bay House

14295 Canadian Border Road Ely, MN 55731

The Jasper Bay House is located on the south shore of Jasper Lake. The 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms comfortably accommodate up to 8 people.

The Bay House is a handcrafted home overlooking Jasper Lake, located 16.5 miles east of Ely and easily sleeps up to 8 persons. The Bay House provides a modern kitchen, laundry and dining facilities in addition to two full baths, one upstairs and one down (dishes, bed linens, and towels provided). There are three bedrooms upstairs; the master bedroom has a queen bed and a single bed, with an adjoining private bathroom that has a large shower, lavatory, and toilet. The other two bedrooms each have a queen bed. The downstairs bathroom has a large tub/shower, lavatory, and toilet. This beautiful house was built by Don, the owner, from big red and white pine logs that were harvested on the Canadian Border Road and cut with a portable sawmill on site. The kitchen cabinets are handmade and all the interior pine walls are sanded and varnished to a golden sheen. A three season porch through a set of French doors sports a built-in day bed and seating that provides a fantastic view of Jasper Lake. The sitting area has a gas heating stove for comfortable lounging plus a table for board games and cards for rainy days. The large dining area with an antique round oak table also overlooks the lake through a sliding glass door.

The kitchen is large and fully equipped with a full size refrigerator (bottom freezer), a five burner gas range/oven, a microwave, a dishwasher, and drip coffee maker. The water supply is from a drilled well and inspected by Lake County. An outside gas grill is provided. The Bay House has two decks that overlook Jasper Lake. An outside fire pit is also available for guests to enjoy an evening campfire, roast marshmallows with the children, or enjoy an evening cocktail. The fire pit is a great place to relax and get a glimpse of the elusive northern lights. An open air fish cleaning table is available as well. Three aluminum canoes are provided with the rental of the Bay House. Jasper Lake is a short walk down to a small natural beach area.
