My husband and I were scheduled to stay here the night before a dogsledding excursion (White Wilderness Dogsledding), but unfortunately had some car trouble about 45 mins away. We called the owner, Don, to tell him we were not going to make it for the night, and that's when he kicked into overdrive. Sure enough, Don drove the 45 mins... More

It's a nice, clean, safe place. When we were there it was -29 below and the employees were nice enough to bring us a space heater to help out in the room. One thing you should know is the "breakfast" consists of a coffee and pastry at the bakery two doors down, which is owned by the same owners. We... More

Spent one night. It was our first experience at a place like this. We had the Crimson Room. One double bed and a large bathroom that was handicap accessible. We were on the main floor. The living area was very nice with a fireplace and a full kitchen if you needed it. It is very close to shops and restaurants.... More

Great location to park your car and walk to shops and restaurants. Rooms were clean and cute. Kitchen common area was very useful. Loved drinking a glass of wine by the fireplace while playing a game of cribbage then hearing the other guests share their adventures. And the stay had a perfect ending of a great cup of tea and...

Two of our group stayed here while the third paddled for four days in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. It worked very well for us. There is a kitchen, dining area, and living area on the first floor that's there for all to use, and we had it pretty much to ourselves. One of us was studying for medical boards,... More

Stayed upstairs of BaskeTree in west loft room. 2 queen beds with twin bunk over each. 1 separate bedroom. Sufficient lighting. Extremely clean private bathroom. If you are not able to climb stairs very well, you would want to choose a different location, the stairs were a bit steep and 2 flights. Nice rock garden area with covered patio, tables... More

Spent a long weekend in Ely with some girlfriends. Stayed in one of the lofts above the bakery and was very impressed. I have to say I was impressed at how comfortable the beds were! Perfect location downtown if you want to wander around. Ely is a small town but still a great location near shops, great food and bars... More

Spent 2 days visiting Ely & this place was perfect for us. Enjoyed the kitchen & the porch as well as the location- and just steps away from the BasketTree which provided us with delish coffee and pastries as part of our stay.

We stayed upstairs in the loft rooms over the bakery. They were perfectly clean, the beds were extremely comfortable, the linens/towels were all freshly laundered. There were 8 of us in the party, so we rented both of the rooms which were attached in the back by a big kitchen. We chose to eat outside in the beautiful courtyards with... More

This was the second time we have stayed at this Inn. Just like the first time, we had a fantastic stay! We pulled up, called the proprietor on the phone number listed on the door, he gave us the code to the lock box and we went to our room. The first time we stayed upstairs, this time we stayed...

Dear Sherrielyn, Thank you for taking the time to review my family's business, I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your second stay as much as your first. My father remodeled the house using locally harvested lumber. He is a fantastic carpenter and I am so glad you noticed and commented on that aspect of our Inn. We... More
