In addition to a 'corporate' engineering career, i have worked in the natural foods industry (various roles over several years at a food co-op), nutritional counseling, and residential construction and design. For the past several years, i have been dedicated to the restoration of green gate guest houses- our one-of-a-kind lodging properties in northern mn.

Shawn Callahan purchased this farmhouse in 2002

Why Shawn Callahan chose Biwabik

Our 13 acre property was a former mining town, then a large family farm for much of the past century. In addition to the rich history of this property, it is also unique located on a private setting between the small town of Biwabik and the Giants Ridge Recreation Area.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Our property is bordered by the the Embarrass River, providing private water access to our guests for lounging and swimming. Two sandy beaches on nearby Embarrass Lake are within walking/biking distance. We are also located just a block off the Mesabi Bike Trail, 1 mile from The Quarry golf Course and 3 miles from Giants Ridge Ski Area (both nordic and alpine skiing/snowboarding and tubing options).

Absolutely perfect in every way! Beautifully renovated with old world craftsmanship that is rare!

  • 5 of 5

I needed extra accommodations for family members during Christmas and this was the best! Great location, beautiful grounds and super host! My family will be staying there again this summer for our family reunion. For a small town community Greengate is a huge find! I can't say enough about it! Thank you Shawn!

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we stayed at Greengate. The kids loved the grounds and checking for eggs every day, I loved the farmhouse, screened in porch and the attention to small details from the decorating to the functioning kitchen. Shawn has created an inviting, comfortable and trendy space. We highly recommend this serene property!
