Unmatched beauty and service!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in , Willie and Betsy were absolutely fantastic. We were met promptly and pleasantly, shown to our cabin, and it was clear that if we needed ANYTHING, all we had to do was ask.

We stayed in Cabin #9, at the top of the bluff, and the views were out of this world. We stayed during the height of the Perseid Meteor shower, and were not disappointed. The skies were crystal clear, and virtually no light pollution.

We visited several of the museums in Ely, and highly recommend making the trip to Soudan to visit the mine. Me and my two boys (11 and 13 years) loved it. They warn against people who are claustrophobic, but none of us felt particularly closed in, and there were no tight spaces. In my opinion, the darkness was the only thing that may cause difficulties for some people.

We didn't have much luck fishing, but it seemed we were the exception, as the fish house was bustling the whole time we were there.

We have every intention of coming back next year!

It was more than we anticipated. The view is worth the trip. You won't miss your cell phone.

I rented the property for my father's birthday get away. The cabin was clean and stocked with everything we needed. We did not have any kids with us, and we slept 5 adults in the cabin comfortably. We all remarked on how we didn't miss the TV or the distraction of a cell phone. It was truly a peaceful place. The staff on property was pleasant and more than helpful. They came to check on us each morning and remove the garbage and recycling. They also offered to help get the boat in the lake and helped us with canoes. It was refreshing that the 'extras' didn't cost extra. Also I appreciated the opportunity to bring our dog with us, he enjoyed his Ely adventure as well. Thank you Willy for everything.
