“Very Rustic but it came with a boat.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2009

"Come and enjoy Stony Ridge's 1940's rustic style cabins.
These cabins feature Pine interiors, cooking facilities,
refrigerator, bathrooms with showers, skylights (to enjoy
starry nights) and cable T.V."

This is what is advertised on their web site.

Nothing fancy. We stayed in the 2 bedroom unit. You walk into the kitchen/dining/livingroom. There you will find a hot plate with some pots and pans and a few dishes on one side of the room and a table with a toaster, microwave and a radio on the other side of the room. Next to that is a older refridgerator with the TV sitting on top. No kitchen sink. At the end of the room is a bench with a back to sit on. No cushions for comfort. The floor is wood throughout with a piece of linolium from the 60's laid on top in the front area. The two bedrooms are on the other side of the wall. No doors. The beds should have been replaced 10 years ago. They furnish the bedding -sheets and blankets. No mattress pad. The bathroom was very small. Toilet, sink and shower stall and the water heater. You supply your own towels. The unit does come with a 14' fishing boat and motor. (you pay for the gas) They offer a firepit for nightly fires and supply the wood. Also a BBQ grill and picnic table. There is also a restaurant at the resort. We were unable to eat there because they choose when they want to be open. The night we wanted to have dinner there, we were told they were out of meat. We have stayed at several hotels in Ely but wanted to try a resort this time. I feel it is over priced for what you get. On the upside, the resort is on the edge of town. So you are close to shopping, the North American Bear Center and The Wolf Center and everything else Ely has to offer.
