#22 of 38 Specialty lodging in Ely
“Lodge of Whispering Pines is Link with Nature” Before you witness spectacular sunsets and views of Big Lake from your Lakefront cabin, you’ll be treated to a secluded drive through the Superior National Forest along the Echo Trail - Along granite cliff roadways that hug the edge of wilderness landscapes to you - you'll experience an awakening to your natural surroundings and an enlightening of your spirit. The noise, the crowds are left behind, and traffic seems nonexistent. Your vacation has already begun. Just twenty miles north of Ely a secluded private drive leads you further into the Superior National Forest to Lodge of Whispering Pines on Big Lake. Poised among tall pine, picturesque birch, spruce, balsam, and aspen, you realize you are encircled by the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and are now guests of the deer, moose, black bear, timber wolves, loons, and all the other wild creatures that inhabit northern Minnesota's truly natural park. "True Wilderness Resort"

We camped here July 1st, planning on staying until the 5th when we were going to Fall Lake. Between the fishing, swimming and sauna trips, we decided to stay put for our whole trip. Dog friendly, family friendly and wonderful owners. We decided to come back for another week at the end of the month. If you can, book a lake side campsite (we loved #4 for our large family).

Been going to Whispering Pines for the last two years and looking forward to this year's trip. Very friendly service always. Private owned and they try and take care of all the needs. The resort is kept clean. The cabins are beautiful and cozy. This year we will have extended family with the younger on camp sites as well. Can't wait to get back again.

The owners are amazing and really showed us the hot spots for fishing! What a success! Our kids can't wait to go back! First vacation they caught many many fish!

Going into our second year coming back. Took a chance and split the lodge with friends... Worth every penny. Right on the lake, calm, big fish, and the grounds kept orderly. I was impressed when we forgot a couple things like bug spray and life jackets, the owner had whatever we needed there. No need to go into town for anything once.The hospitality is much appreciated. Here's to year 2!

I'd like to keep this place a secret but that wouldn't be nice. We discovered this paradise quite by accident and have spent so many summers there and made so many wonderful memories. We have the same cabin every year - Cedar - and it sits about 5 feet from the water with a view down the full length of Big Lake. Big Lake is a whole other story. I've always said if Disney had designed the perfect "wilderness" it would look like this. Only one other resort on entire 3000+ acre lake and a few water access properties. It's a special place on the face of this earth. It's not for everyone but it's perfect for us!
