About Jeff Jokela
Life long Ely recreational resident. Family bought property on White Iron Lake in 1962 and have been privileged to enjoy summers and winter vacations all the years since. No other place in the world I'd rather be. That said, have had a Illinois drivers license since I started driving, and have lived in Evanston Illinois the past 32 years. When am I moving to Ely? It's a process, I'm working on it.
Jeff Jokela purchased this Cabin in 1986
Why Jeff Jokela chose Ely
Started living on an island. Problem is the winter freeze and spring thaw, hard to operate at those times. When fate allowed this property came my way, it was unimproved, no road, no well, no buildings, but a sweet location with lake and Bear Island River frontage and plenty of acreage. Now that the infrastructure is all there life is good.
What makes this Cabin unique
Heritage Haus was built in the early 1920's by Finnish log builders hewn from tamarack logs fell on site. It was one of several cabins at Burley's Fish Camp Resort a mile or so up the shore. We dismantled, moved, and rebuilt it at the present location. As a youngster I remember getting minnows and night crawlers from the old bait house, and then a cold 7UP at the main lodge from Grandma Burley herself. Heritage Haus has served as a guest cabin for our Heritage Villa next door. It is my favorite place to stay.

Beautiful winter get away
Jeff has an amazing place on White Iron tucked away in the birch and pines. We stayed warm and cozy inside by the fire while the mercury read -23° outside. The toughest part is knowing we have to leave. We'll be back.
Amazing northern retreat!
The history and decor of this 'one room' log cabin are great. It's old and rustic (in a very good way) and has many period furniture, art and kitchen utensils too. A nice winter wonderland holiday getaway!
Beautiful, great get away for the wife and I.
The cabin is beautiful, warm and cozy! Making plans to return already.
Beautiful location and Jeff is really great! Awesome fishing and canoeing ! Will recommend to friends and family!
This was a great getaway in the Northwoods
The cabin was absolutely great. We wanted for nothing. Having the fireplace added to the charm of the cabin. Jeff and Hans were attentive hosts. Would recommend this property for a romantic weekend.
Thank you, Jeff! I truly enjoyed staying at the cabin and your hospitality. I'll be back soon.
Great cabin. I enjoyed the authentic cabin, which Jeff has well-supplied with everything needed for a comfortable stay.
