Our first year as seasonal campers at Timber Wolf Lodge was exceptional! From our first day to our last, Chad and his staff were extraordinary! We LOVED every minute of our time at TWL and were so sad when it came time to close up for the year. From providing fishing tips, to checking in each evening before the office... More

From the initial reservation to the end of our stay, Chad and his team were very accomodating to our group of 7 weary BWCA adventurers. The cabin was clean and comfortable. Be sure to bring bath/hand towels, shampoo, soap, etc. The kitchen had all the tools for us to prepare a meal and you will need to supply all the... More

Dido on the compliments by the many previous reviewers. My wife, our puppies, and I just finished a wonderful fall week stay in cabin 4 on Bear Island Lake. If you're looking for a quality stay in a cabin-on-a-lake experience then this is a place worth considering. I studied many other locations and in fact was somewhat concerned about the... More

Spent a very relaxing and enjoyable week-end at Timber Wolf Lodge in Ely. As soon as we arrived the staff made us feel as though our comfort was more important than anything else and that we were part of the family. Chad, the property manager, personally showed us around and took us on a boat tour of the lake. He... More

We had the best time at the Timber Wolf Lodge. Chad and his staff was excellent. We were treated like royalty. Chad also helped us with information on the hike to the water falls. We went fishing and Jim our guide was excellent also. He worked very hard on helping us catch fish. The cabin was very clean and the... More

Quiet stay. Loved the deck. Very private cabin #8. Felt like I had my own private back yard. As there is a privacy fence between the road and cabin. A little noisy as it is the Rd to the boat launch & office but only noticed when a diesel truck came by. Loved that it is pet friendly. My dog... More
