"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!"

"This was our second Thanksgiving in a row at this town home and we hope to be back for more. Our family has been enjoying Thanksgivings in Lutsen for over a decade - so we can make an honest comparison - and this is a very nice unit. It's large enough for 3 families to comfortably spend 4 nights together. I'd agree that the main level living room is a bit small for a group as large as the home can sleep - as others have noted - but it's no different than any other unit of this style in the complex, so definitely nothing to be concerned with. In general the home is great, always prepared for our stay and the kitchen definitely allows for anything that you might want to whip up - including Thanksgiving dinner for a large group. The views are absolutely wonderful and the location within the complex is very convenient. Caribou Highlands is our favorite resort close to the hill, and being so close to the ski hill itself is another added perk. Whether you're skiing, hiking, relaxing by a fire or visiting all of the fun spots up and down Highway 61, this is a great place stay. Add to that the owner is very friendly and easy to work with as well, which is yet another perk of renting this town home. We'll be back and you should stay here too if your travel plans are bringing you to the Lutsen/Tofte area."

"I spent the weekend at the A frame with a few friends and had an amazing experience. The cabin is clean, spacious, and has everything you would need. The views are hard to beat and the proximity to great restaurants and hiking made the trip that much better. I would highly recommend that anyone stay here as the cabin and location offer something for everyone - whether you want to get out and explore or stay in and enjoy the cabin."
