Stayed three nights late September for Ely Marathon. Classic cabin on the lake. Clean and warm, attentive and friendly owners. They had a great year and stories to tell. Newspaper with coffee and donuts in Sunday like a five star hotel.

Our cabin was very clean and roomy for the two of us. Very relaxing and it has kayaks, canoes and paddle boasts for use. This is a great location for families with kids. Very close to town of Ely for dinner, grocery stores, shopping etc. Sandy and Kerry are very welcoming and very helpful for local information. Great location to visit the International wolf Center, North Am. Bear Center and Voyaguers NP. also not too far to Lake Superior that you could make that a day trip.

This was our second year at white iron beach resort. We stayed last year with friends in a larger cabin, and our three kids wanted to come back so badly that we rented a smaller cabin this year. The kids love the sandy beach and the playground area. There are kayaks and canoes guests can use for free. My kids are 5, 12, and 14 - and the teenagers stayed off their phones and had as much fun as the 5yo! Close to lots of cool hiking trails and fun things to do in Ely and close enough to Lake Superior to make day trips to tettagouche park and the zip lines in silver bay.

Excellent family vacation resort. The lodging, wonderful beach with kayaks, canoes, and paddle boards, excellent fishing and easy access to Ely and the boundary waters made our family vacation (including our dog) the highlight of our summer. Kudos to the on-site property managers, Sandy and Kerry, for making us feel right at home for our week long stay at the White Iron Beach.

The cabin we rented had plenty of room for our family of 4 to relax and have our own space. The deck overlooking the lake was great and there was a nice gas grill and fire pit The kitchen had all of the cookware and utensils we needed to cook our meals. Nice boat landing, beach and play area. The staff was friendly and helpful.
