My husband and I have had a permanent site in a beautiful area of the resort for the past 6 years! The owners and staff are very welcoming and accommodating - we are still in awe every season we are up there as to how they accommodate everyone and want everyone's experience to be a good one! All we have... More

Loved it! People where so nice... Not sure why people have neg. reviews? I usually never put a review. But before I came here I looked on the reviews and they where all poor. It's not the hilton.. It's a cute cabin!! Great service. We even called the bar and they made us pop corn:)

My wife and I booked a full hook-up spot in the campground and was very surprised that the spots were pretty small, but once we settled in it started growing on us, the staff is AWESOME, and they really worked hard to make us comfortable. The fishing boats and motors were in good condition and the boat docks were well... More

This is a hard review to write. CONS: The motel suite we had was very dated and worn. I could look past that as the view was spectacular and the room was very clean. The carpet was badly stained, but clean - I looked hard but could not find any dirt, fleas, bed bugs etc. The first night it was... More

Made the mistake of arriving in Ely on a Friday evening without a reservation and was referred to this lodge - and I took the last suite left. Such a beautiful view - but everything in the suite was old and worn with badly stained carpets. All this was not great but bearable but when I turned the bed covers... More

We rented a junior suite to stay in for 3 nights while in town for a baseball tournament. The room was nice with 2 beds (1 double and 1 single). Full kitchen (stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffeepot). Couch and a nice wooden dining set. Shower was a little small, but that was probably the only small problem. Service was wonderful! Even...

Had an RV site for two nights. Treed area, full service, quiet and clean. The dock was a great place to go fishing on the river. Caught a 32" 9lb jack but lake limits said we had to put it back. The staff were very nice and even offered to deliver firewood to our site. The restaurant/bar looked like a... More

We rented the "paradise". It is a nice big cabin with a great view. It also has a serious propane exhaust smell. We stayed one night with all of the windows open and realized it wouldn't work for us since we have a 3 year old and a 6 week old. The kids were cold and my wife and mother... More

After canoeing the Boundary Waters for 4 days, we were looking for a place to stay before heading home. Walked in Sunday 5/26 and paid for a junior suite. It was 7p on Memorial Day weekend, and they told us they were only serving dinner until 8p. Upon walking into our room, there was an incredible gas smell. So strong... More
