About Shawn f callahan

I am a degree professional (mechanical engineering as well as nutrition science) with a variety of passions and interests. 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 interior design. For the past few years, I have been dedicated to the design/build of Green Gate Guest Houses- three unique lodging properties on my 13 acre homestead.

I have a passion for all areas of construction, design, technology, sustainable living, renewable energy, etc., and enjoy putting ideas into action through the myriad of projects I always have going!

I enjoy nature, outdoors, exercise (running, hiking, cycling, skiing, etc), as well as the culture and arts of the city. I've traveled domestically and internationally, and value the insight gained from experiencing new cultures. I often bring back design ideas that are eventually incorporated into various projects around the property. Nepal is the next great destination on my bucket list.

Having operated my vacation rental properties for Several years now, I have been fortunate to host such a variety of wonderful guests. Everyone that has stayed here has been a pleasure to get to know, and I look forward to all our future guests.

Why Shawn f callahan chose Biwabik

The quality of life and proximity to outdoor recreation are the reasons I have chosen to live and work in Biwabik MN. I enjoy developing unique properties that allow me to share these experiences with travelers visiting northern Minnesota.

What makes this chalet unique

The Villa affords my guests opportunities not possible at the other Green Gate Guest Houses. Not only is The Villa more spacious (comfortably accomodating up to 12 guests), it also includes more resort-like amenities (sauna, outdoor hot tub, close proximity to dining & entertainment). Guests enjoy views and access to the beautiful Wynne Lake to the east, and direct access to the Giants Ridge alpine and Nordic trails to the west, making this a very unique vacation experience.

Girlfriend's getaway

  • 5 of 5

Your place was perfect for a friend's getaway. Had everything we needed and more. Loved the sauna and hot tub experience! The kitchen had all the appliances and items we needed to cook our meals and plenty of space for us to hang and enjoy the company. Thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful villa.

Beautiful ski vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is perfect place to vacation! Eight women went up for a ski vacation. The trails are perhaps the best in the state, and it was wonderful coming home to relax in the outdoor hot tub and indoor sauna! Shawn was excellent to work with and everything went without a hitch. Place was immaculate with a well-equipped kitchen and great views. Beds were comfy. We loved putting on our snow shoes and hiking across the lake to the Island. I recommend this place enthusiastically.
