Bernie and his Family make your stay great. The cabins are clean and filled with everything you will need. There is two cabins right on the lake and the rest are no more then a couple of yards from the lake. There is good fishing on Shagwa lake and there is also two great nice lakes just a short drive...

Lady Bug Lodge is a great place to stay. My 10 yr old grandson and I just returned form a 4 day stay. He wanted to catch fish and Bernie made sure he caught them-- lots of them. Everyone at the resort was wonderful.

We stayed for 3 nights on Labor Day weekend. Rented the Lakeside Cabin (would never think of doing anything else), You get a pontoon for your whole stay. Nice deck overhanging the lake, fire ring, wonderful views out the windows. Bernie and the staff are great. Looking forward to another visit. Henry the hound greeted us on arrival. No TV,... More

We stayed at Bayside cabin for 5 days last week and had a wonderful time. The cabin was right on the lake with our pontoon boat parked right at the door. The cabins are not fancy but clean and comfortable. The staff were unbelievable. They were friendly, helpful and always willing to answer questions and provide wonderful service in any... More

We didn't stay at the lodge, but rented a canoe from them. The service was great. They even offered to pro-rate the fee if we didn't say out the whole time. (But, I think it was only $18 for three or four hours to begin with.) They brought the canoe right to the edge of the lake for us and... More

My husband and I stayed in the Boathouse condo. We had a great veiw of the lake and the free use of the pontoon was really wonderful. We went fishing every day and that was really fun. We caught at least 8 fish caugt, good size too. The condo was very clean and well equipped. The staff, Bernie and his... More

Nice clean cabins, top notch pontoon with cabin, best location on Shagawa lake. Bernie, Liz, the boys and crew are fabulous. Shagawa lake has something for everyone...fishing, swimming, etc. A lot of smallmouth, northern and walleye. Lots of good restaurants in Ely or cook your own in the cabin, or on the grill outside your cabin.

Bernie and all of his family and staff are wonderful people. We stayed here in cabin 2 for a week. The cabin was clean and just the right size for my husband, our 4 year old, the pack-and-play held our 1 year old and the dog! The best yet, it was really reasonable- 800$ for the cabin, dog fee, free... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Lady Bug Lodge. It was a simple and convenient place to stay, just minutes from downtown Ely. And what we especially enjoyed was having our own pontoon. This allowed us to strike the perfect balance between recreational and educational. Each day we were able to fish, swim, kayak, etc. and then later explore the... More

Second time staying here and we are going back this year. The cabins are nice and clean and the pontoon boat that comes with your cabin is a very nice bonus. Very relaxing vacation.
