Wonderful fishing location between Farm & White Iron lakes. There was no charge to dock our boat for the week. The cabin overlooks a bay on Farm lake. Beautiful views from our nightly campfire. We experienced great fishing (walleye & northern) right from the pier. Our 16 & 8 year olds loved the rustic cabin, however this was not an... More

We stayed in July 2014 in one of the Deluxe Motel Suites. We walked in the door and the room stunk like smoke and old, dirty smells. One look at the 30 year old carpet and that told us why. It was stained and run down, just plain gross. I thought maybe it wouldn’t smell if we opened windows and... 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
