Resort amenities, wrapped in Nature

Comfy, casual and welcoming, cottage style is perfect for the vacation mindset.  We recently acquired this gem nestled under a grove of towering white pines within the Giants Ridge resort area, and fully renovated it to add our Green Gate personality.  If you'd like to settle into a soft, cozy, space that's full of character and vintage charm, Pine Cone Cottage is your place!  Comfortably accommodating up to 8 guests, the 2-story Pine Cone Cottage includes an open-concept main floor with kitchen, dining and lounge area.  Well-appointed with cozy furniture, farmhouse dining niche, a beautiful stone fireplace, full length porch with treetop views of Wynne Lake and the Laurentian divide, this space invites you to relax and entertain after an adventurous day outside. 2 bedrooms with shared bath complete the main floor.  A loft bedrooms with 2 built-in twin beds and private bath overlook the main floor and provide an incredible view of the morning sunrise over Wynne Lake.

Pine Cone Cottage overlooks Wynne Lake and sits across from the Chamonix and Helsinki alpine chair lifts, nordic ski trails, mountain bike park and the paved Mesabi Trail.  The winter ski chalet, Legends golf course, restaurants, bars and shopping are approx 1/4 mile north, and the Quarry golf course clubhouse is 1.5 miles to the south.  Onsite, guests are welcomed to use the resort amenities (seasonal outdoor pool and hot tub, tennis courts, trails, beaches, docks, and playground), all within easy walking distance during your stay with us. The Green Gate Guest Houses property is just 3 miles south on the Giants Ridge Road.   Guests may also travel “car free” between these properties via bicycle or cross-country skis along the beautiful Mesabi Trail, or via canoe/kayak on the Embarrass River.

Charming, warm, clean; everything you need

"Great place for our large family.  Spacious yet homey! Coffee on the deck overlooking the lake was great. Thanks, Shawn- we love all your properties and will be back to ski this winter!"

Perfect stay!

"Golfing at Giants Ridge was fantastic, the 4th of July celebration in Biwabik was fun!  Shawn, the manager was very attentive and the property was spotless!"

A great choice!

"Clean, comfortable, spacious, beautiful views AND close to the ski hill!  We highly recommend the Cottage and the kids are already asking if we can come back again."
