We found the Ely White House to be a wonderful spot for our family to use as a home base while exploring the Ely area. My husband and I spent five days in the boundary waters and then exited to finish off our ten day vacation in town. Our adult kids got a couple days off of work and joined us for part of the time. It had plenty of room, was clean, comfortable and full of amenities for us to use when we weren't shopping, eating, hiking, exploring. We loved the full kitchen and also the laundry facilities, which meant we could clean up after our canoe trip and not leave the camping mess for when we arrived back home nearly a week later. We will be back next time we are in the area!
We visited on two occasions this summer, both with out of state visitors. The cabin was well appointed and had everything we needed. It is spacious enough to provide sleeping spaces for all our guests yet open enough to be able to all gather in the main rooms.
We transported the two canoes to the launch on Nels Lake and left them there for the stay for easy access. Make sure you have a vehicle to move the canoes, as it’s a bit too far to carry them if you also have kids.
The owners were very responsive and accommodating both before and during the stay. We’d recommend and look forward to visiting again.
