Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: My wife Lori and I raised our family in this beautifully crafted lodge. The children are off to the university and on their own. We live in Ely and also own Rainy Lake Outpost Camp in Ontario Canada. We love the outdoors and have lived in Alaska, Canada and Northern Minnesota for the past 26 years! We invite you to enjoy this little piece of heaven we have.

Why the Owner Chose Ely, MN, USA:
I have been in the Resort and Real Estate business for over 30 years and enjoyed every single day of wilderness travel.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Absolutlely one of the finest sunsets on the planet coupled with a end of the road setting give serenity filled property an ambience that can't nearly be explained by words. The unique 1928 craftsmanship and look of the property sends us back in time during all 4 seasons. Old fashion and good old times are the best for us and the fishing out front is some of the best. Long pontoon rides and seeing the kids swimming is the next best!
