We just got back from sending a week at Veterans on the Lake. What a great find! We stayed in cabin 19. It's a 3br. The cabins are clean and have incredible views. The staff are very accommodating and friendly. The office hours are shorter that other resorts we've been to but it worked out ok. There is a pool and beach which is great. About 5 mimutes from Ely.

I am a retired Navy Veteran. My wife rolled a ATV June, 2016 and resulted in a Traumatic Brain Injury, (DAI). We stayed through Memorial day weekend for 3 nights and 4 days, I brought my own Hoyer lift and there was plenty of room in the cabin for maneuvering her wheel chair and lift. Everything was super clean, I needed a dock space to park my pontoon boat for my wife and they moved one of theirs for me. This place is top notch. I have ZERO help and am my wife's only caregiver. 4 years and not one day of respite. So this was heaven for me. Great stimulation for my wife also.

Absolutely awesome place. This place was so relaxing. Nice and peaceful. Got to just fish. Nothing else. Was able to rent aluminum boats, and pontoon boats. Large lake to catch a variety of fish from, cleaning stations, ffire pits, and even grill everywhere to utilize. I love this place. My family and I stayed here for 2 weeks a few years ago, and i cant tell you how fantastic the stay was. The employees were very kind and helpful. Very informative about the nearby town of Ely. This place has cabin rentals. Kids activities are fishing, and things kids should be doing i stead of being on their dang phones!!!

The resort is well run, buildings our old, but well maintained. lots of boat docks. Handicap accessible pontoon boats and swimming pool. The whole resort site is designed with people with physical challenges in mind. I had a one room cabin that was furnished with everything, but bath towels, bring your own. It had a queen size bed, chest of drawers, night stand tv and easy chair. Cabin also had a kitchenette with refrigerartor, microwave, dishes, silverware, coffee pot soap pots and pans and dish towels. My wife wants to return to Veterans on the lake and stay longer. The cabins also have grills, and picnic table not mention great view of Fall Lake.

I have stayed in about all the cabins at least once. They know me by name and I have never had any problems with the place. People don't realize they treat the veterans good and its a NON-PROFIT. Most of the people if not all of them volunteer their time. If you want to complain, donate your time or money or furniture. They have a list if I am not mistaken on their website for what you can donate or what they need. I am going back in two weeks my 24th or 25th time? I lost track........................At least they have someplace veterans can go and its quiet and get away from city life. I am from Chiraq and it amazing every year to get away from here.....................
