My family (parents, wife, three siblings) and I spent a weekend in one of the large cabins at Deer Ridge. We were not there to fish, which probably puts us in the minority among visitors to Ely. We did enjoy: --the Kawishiwi Falls hike (that park is just across the street from Deer Ridge) --the charcoal grill --campfires (each pair of cabins shares one fire pit; there is firewood available for purchase) --kayaking and paddleboards on the beautiful lake This last was the highlight of the weekend for me. The rentals are included in the cabin rental price; just go down to the lake, grab a life vest, and choose a kayak, canoe, or paddle board.

This resort provided a much needed relaxing getaway for me and my family. The cabins are adorable and the view was beautiful. I really enjoyed our time on the lake and my favorite part was taking the trail to the waterfall nearby. I highly recommend this cozy resort for anyone looking for a peaceful getaway.

Deer Ridge Resort was the perfect place for our family to spend some much needed time together, and it was so great to be able to include our family dog on our stay too! All of our needs were happily provided for by the staff. Whether it was the water fun with each family member kayaking together on the beautiful lake, getting some great exercise on a hiking outing to the Kawishiwi Falls nearby, sitting around the campfire with quality conversation, visiting the Dorothy Molter Museum with our run into the town of Ely, or even just lounging around the log cabin, we were making memories together! We would love to return to this special space again!! We highly recommend this get away! Thank you, Davis Family, for providing so much for others to enjoy!!

Deer Ridge Resort is a very nice clean resort in a very nice quiet spot. Very good staff, and a well maintained property. Looking forward to returning for several years. Fish can be caught right off the dock, and there is a lot of lakes accessible by boat right from the resort.
