Our family went to northern MN on a family/fishing vacation and choose Timber Trail Lodge as our destination. We are so glad we choose Timber Trail Lodge. We have stayed at other resorts and this was the nicest we have been at so far. The staff was wonderful, especially Kathy in the office and the outside service boys. The fishing... More

The fish treated us equally well as our gracious Hosts did. My 2nd year back, but this time it was Sept. instead of June. Cabin was as clean and as well supplied with utensils and china as it was last year. Fortunately there were extra blankets already in place in the drawers as the weather turned cold and very wet..The... More

My son and I stayed at the lodge from Aug 10 thru Aug 14, 2013. We packaged a three day fishing adventure with Rob Nelson owner of the Ely Fishing Guide Co. Our cabin was clean and very comfortable. The owners and staff could not have been more accommodating. The location is very convenient to the shops and restaurants in... More

We just had a week long vacation at Timber Trail Lodge, and we have mixed opinions on rather we'd go back or not. Overall it was good, and we are VERY low-maintenance, laid back travelers. It's a beautiful area and a beautiful lake. What we didn't enjoy was having no privacy in the particular cabin we were in - Aspen.... More

My family has been staying at Timber Trail for many years. We have stayed in many of the cabins available and all are quite nice. This is not a place you go looking for all of the high class items, this is the place you go to enjoy peace, quiet, and wilderness how God created it. There is cell phone... More

My wife and I stayed in the Ranger cabin, a "primitive" structure moved from inside the Boundary Waters log by log and reassembled on site - cast iron woodstove and other "no-tech" (no TV, no telephone, and so on) made this a return to earlier times experience. Of course, cellphone coverage and wifi are here too, but I was more... More

For the past 8 years, we have chosen Timber Trail Lodge as the location for our week long Retreat for Women. Our experience at Timber Trail has been exceptional in every way. We stay in the Evergreen & Diamond Willow cabins and love their comfortable & cozy atmosphere, fireplaces in each cabin & fully equipped modern kitchens. Another plus for... More

This place "rocks"! ... in a quiet way. Right next to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. More water to paddle on in a lifetime, right from your cabin. The cabins are spotless, the kitchen in Evergreen is big enough to cook a dinner for twenty & I should know I was the cook du jour for the week. The... More

We stayed in the Evergreen cabin and it was great. Its was big, clean, and comfortable with one bedroom upstairs with one bed and two bedrooms downstairs, one with two sets of bunk beds and the other with a queen and a single. You have your own dock and campfire area, and a nice size deck. The large kitchen was... More
