If you're going to Ely/BWCA. Moose Track Adventures has everything you want for your holiday: great owner, clean and cozy cabins, beautiful lake view, knowledgeable canoe/fishing guides, lovely dogs, ......, etc. Of course all in reasonable price. It seems that we are the first three Chinese from mainland China spend a week here. I told Joan that more Chinese may... More

Minnesota and Massachusetts friends were warmly welcomed and royally treated by Joan and family. Our guided canoe trip with Ross had us laughing over stories and grateful for his strength. We couldn't have had a better weekend. The cabin was perfect, the grounds were well groomed, and we enjoyed the paddle boat and a windy boat ride on Farm Lake.

So we arrived late and Joan had the cabin ready and left the light on for us with a wonderful note. We awoke the next morning and as we sat outside by the lake having coffee we were greeted by their beautiful and friendly retriever. The accommodations were comfortable and very clean. It was our first time to Ely and... More

Fantastic place to stay. This was our second trip to Ely and plan to go for a week next year. The owners Jim,Joan and family make you feel like family and that it is your home away from home. The beds are are extremely comfortable. You are right on the lake.

I have been taking a Summer fishing vacation in Ely for my entire life. My family has always stayed at Moose Track Adventures under each of the previous owners. Each year I look forward to all the work that the current owners, Jim and Joan have put into the place. The constant renovations really add to the resort ' s... More

My first time to Ely and the BWCA. My buddy and I were treated wonderfully by Joan and Jim, and they hooked us up with our guide Ron, who was the real Northwoods deal. Moose Track Adventures is not just a place or a cabin. While its location is outstanding and the comfortable, clean cabins are perfectly suited to a... More

Unexpectedly we had 4 nights to spend in Ely. We had no reservation but a quick stop at the Chamber of Commerce Visitors Center set us up with MTA. A treat from the moment we walked into the office. A friendly cheery greeting gave us just the right amount of information, then a preview of 'our' cabin. Perfect. Pristinely clean,... More

The only reason I'm doing this review is for the owners otherwise I guess you could say I want to be selfish and not let anyone know about this great resort! It is 12 out of a 1-10 rating. Very nicely accommodated. If you are looking for a northern Minnesota lakeside resort that is quiet, easy to locate, great fishing... More

In June we spent five nights at Moose Track in the Bald Eagle Cabin. The cabins are small, but have two bedrooms, are clean, comfortable and have a well equipped kitchen. They also have a BBQ, picnic table and fire pit. The grounds are nice and we even had bird feeders we could watch from the cabin window. Jim and... More
