We stayed in Cabin 8 and although the weather was unnaturally cold we had an awesome time! The cabin was very clean and perfect for our needs, the lake / beach was beautiful, the sign-making was fun for the kids (and me), and the service was great. We will DEFINITELY choose this resort as our first choice when we travel... More

The cabin was charming. The setting was beautiful. You couldn't ask for a more friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable staff. The only regret we had was only being able to spend the weekend. We will absolutely be repeat customers. Great place great staff and wonderful memories who could ask for more!

This was our first time in the Ely, MN area. It could not have been more relaxing. We chose Timber Wolf because of its great reviews and mature pine trees. We stayed in cabin 3. Great cabin with an awesome deck overlooking the beautiful lake. Every review about its service are all true. We meet Tim, Chad and Nate. They... More

Stayed in cabin 8; cute and cozy. Nice and clean! Fairly secluded. GREAT FRIENDLY STAFF!!! Went above and beyond :) We love the Ely area, tons of hiking and fun things to do. This cabin doesn't have a direct lake view but has a nice fire pit, deck, and a grill. Bring your own towels and charcoal. Their website is... More

We originally booked a 1 bedroom cabin but then found out that they were still doing work on the cabin due to the rain, so they upgraded us to a 2 bedroom cabin with a 3 season porch right on the lake! we loved the location because it was secluded and not next to the public beach or the RV... More

Dear Irenie6279 - Thank you for all of your awesome words for Timber Wolf Lodge. And thank you for allowing us to move your down the lakeshore to Cabin 9. We were really working hard to complete the exterior staining of Cabin 12 before wintertime and, of course, the rain just would not cooperate. We're glad we had the upgrade... More

I have been coming up to Ely and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) for many years with friends to do a week of wilderness canoe tripping. This summer I figured I would bring up my family instead (wife, 12 yr old daughter, 7 yr old son). Instead of a week canoe trip, which would be a bit much for... More

Thank you xxxtripguy for your kind review on Trip Advisor! We thought that the way that you introduced your entire family to the Boundary Water was brilliant! I can understand that it would be hard to intro them for a one week excursion "off the grid". But having TWL as home base to work from with the comforts of a... More

We rented three cabins - one 5 bedroom, and two 2 bedroom cabins. Everyone was comfortable and the cabins were clean. Fishing wasn't the best, but the boats were in good shape. The beach was awesome and the chairs were a plus! The kitchens were stocked with most of the cooking equipment we needed, and we grilled every night. We... More

My grandparents were the original owners/builders of this resort during the great depression and then into the 50's. My mom (age 82) and I came for a 4 day stay so she could share her memoir/book about growing up on this beautiful resort. We honestly did not know what to expect because mom had not been back for many years.... More
