My husband and I spent a weekend at A Stay Inn Ely in August 2010. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We rented out the Indigo Room and found it to be very unique. This room is at the top of the Inn in what some may consider the attic. The room had the angled ceiling of an attic. My husband and I admired the woodwork that lined the walls and ceiling and wondered how the owner, Don Bean, got the angles so perfect!
We found the room to be very clean and nicely furnished. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was very clean as well. We enjoyed freshed baked goods from the Basketree just down the road. The scones are to die for.
The hotel would be a great place to have a family gathering. There is a spacious lounge and kitchen area for guests to gather in and the wrap around porch is a wonderful place to sit and relax and people watch. The owner's wife told me that several wedding parties had rented out the whole Inn for selected weekends in September so that the family coming in from out of town had a place to stay. What a great idea!
The Inn is very close to many shops and restruants. It is also a nice start to an excursion into the boundary waters. We took advantage of having Don Bean guide us into the BWCA for fishing. It was a wonderful experience and Don is a real class act. We also had fun fishing and enjoying a shore lunch when the day was done. There is no more beautiful place than the BWCA. I can't wait to come back again.
