Recent Ely reviews

  • Great place!

    "Excellent nature get-away-- fishing, canoeing, hiking, relaxing! The best feature by far of this property is the screened in porch. At night we listened to loons, coyotes, owls, and ??? There was always someone wanting to sleep out on the porch--like camping but way better--no bugs and a comfortable futon. Maggie was great to work with."

  • 5*plus Cabin

    "Choose Ely for a vacation after seeing the BBC documentary of the Bears in UK. Built a three week holiday around this, taking in Ely for the middle week. Choose this cabin for its location, on the lake and fishing opportunities. Four of us arrived on a beautiful sunny day, our individual opinions, very well equipped, everything home from home. Welcome pack a great touch thank you. Wonderful use of the canoes for the men, fabulous sunsets most nights even after a day of torrential rain. So peaceful but still close enough to civilisation for us townies. Ate most nights from the BBQ buying great food from ZUPS, unfortunately had to eat inside due to the mosquetos. Here of the party got bit quite badly, thank goodness we brought some spray with us. Felt it was a shame we could not make use of the furniture on the deck. Was told in town when buying more spray that this year was very bad of the mosquetos. Of course we loved the Bear and Wolfe Sanctuarys. And was lucky one evening on our drive home to see a Wolfe trying to cross the road. Hope one day to return, leave tomorrow for our onward trip to Minneapolis and then Chicago for flight back to UK. Thank you Laurel and Carol for making our stay in your part of the world fantastic and we will never forget. X"

  • The perfect winter getaway.

    "My partner and I, and our two dogs, had a great time in this lovely house on Eagle's Nest Lake. We love to hike and took advantage of Bear Head State Park just a few miles from the home, and also explored a number of absolutely amazing trails around Ely--stunning big pines on rocky cliffs beside beautiful frozen lakes. It was so wonderful to come back after a winter hike to this sweet lakeside cabin and enjoy the sauna and then sit by the fireplace. The house has lots of room and is very nicely laid out. There are many large windows for great light and views. The house was clean, well-cared for, nicely decorated, and equipped with everything we needed (including a foosball table!) for a great two week stay. Bruce responded promptly to my questions and was very helpful. We'd highly recommend this comfortable, peaceful spot. And we really appreciate finding such a nice place that allows us to bring our dogs along as they certainly enjoy the hikes at least as much as we do."

  • Loved this cabin and the owners are awesome.

    "We came to Ely from Portland, Oregon for a wedding, and booked this cabin to share with three families. The owners live near Minneapolis/St Paul, so it is managed through a little resort nearby. We arrived and fell in love with the cabin immediately. It has so much space, was tastefully and charmingly decorated, and the layout is perfect. We kept cozy with the fireplace in the main area, and the boys watched football in the four season porch (there's a little fireplace in there too.) It rained for our entire stay, and our girls (1.5 and 3.5) had lots of space to play and stretch out. The kitchen is well stocked, and my mother even baked all of the pies for the wedding in the oven. We loved everything about this place and are looking for an excuse to come back. Thanks for the great hospitality, Jim and Anne! We love Brother Bear Lodge!"
