Melgeorge's is the best Lodge and Resort that our fishing group has visited. The staff and ownership couldn't be nicer and make you feel very welcome. The accomodations couldn't have been more comfortable. The food was terrific. We have been here four times over the years and chances are we will be back.

We stopped here for lunch while fishing on Elephant Lake. Big dock that was easy for us to pull our boat up to and walk in. Nice outdoor patio, and great restaurant. Service, food, and prices were great. Restaurant serves 3 meals a day and has a full bar. Hotel rooms are up above the restaurant. We asked to see... More

Lovely location, very peaceful by the lake. The restaurant was good, room, (no.1 lodge room) was a bit grubby and dated but... More

Stayed here in January. Very nice location on a beautiful lake. Very close to snowmobile trails. Excellent cafe. Very helpful staff. Run by a very nice couple and their children. Cozy Cabin was awesome. Definitely would stay here again.

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The hotel is located at the end of a gravel road next to a beautiful lake. You feel completely away from everything which was great. We had a great time using the free canoes. We really enjoyed sitting down by the lake in the evening and playing corn toss... More

Our vacation started in Ely and then we traveled about an hour away to Melgeorges. We had called ahead of time and made a reservation. Upon arriving, we went to check in. They just asked us our name and gave us our key. No paper work to fill out and they said we could just pay upon checking out. These... More

We have been coming to Melgeorge's for 25 years or more. We have a great time every year. They treat us better than family and the food is to die for. Can't wait til next year!!
