We traveled up to Ely to enjoy a couple of nights away from the cities with our boys. No phones, laptops or technology. From the moment I scheduled the get-away with Marie, I felt drawn to Northern Lights. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed by Marie, the dogs, and the other lodgers. Our boys took a liking to Pepper & Daisy, as we'd left our bulldog at home. As we explored the resort, we quickly connected with two couples that had traveled up from IL & WI. Very sweet people, but what else would I expect from such a warm and welcoming place. Our boys (highschoolers) both felt comfortable and took advantage of the waterfront. Taking the paddle boat out the first evening we arrived as my husband and I read books while looking out across the water to the most beautiful sun setting in the sky. I believe we stayed in cabin #3 which has been remodeled. It was super cute. We will definitely be back! Thank you Marie! You were a sweatheart and our youngest definitely appreciate your willingness to let him play with the dogs and come and go from the lodge.
