The Lodge was appealing. The setting lovely. Check in and check out quick. Pool area clean. Enjoyed game room. Like having a sink outside bathroom as well as inside. Lobby did get very loud as bar area small- difficult to walk through.

The foyer was so warm and inviting and the pool perfect for the kids. The views from rooms and dining were spectacular. Everything was clean and staff very friendly. Pleasantly surprised how nice of a place this was to stay. We were looking for an indoor heated pool and this fit the bill. We didn't realize all the nice extras...

Very clean and well taken care of. Friendly staff, you can tell they take pride in their work! Would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone coming to Ely. We have two children under 10 that were able to eat free for both days we stayed, that is unheard of and much appreciated!

Love going to Ely to visit the Bear Center and the International Wolf Center - it is one of our happy places. The area is so beautiful, friendly and calm from where we live. We try to visit at least every couple of years in summer, spring or fall.

Always hospitable, personable and meets all my needs. It is self contained with whatever you might need. A must to stay at. Every detail is provided for your stay. And definitely don't forget to purchase one of the beautiful pieces of clothing!!

Very kid-friendly with spacious rooms. Location was perfect - short walk to town, plenty of trails and access to the lake right on site. Beautiful views from our room on the top floor. Sometimes the staff lacked the polish I'd expect of a luxury resort which made me question the value for the price at times. Having said that, I...

A solo trip to Ely is therapy for the soul. I always visit the Bear Center and the Wolf Center. Adorable town. Merchant owners are friendly and always offer good chatter. Love Ely and love the Lodge's accommodations.

Check in was simple, room was clean, comfortable and had plenty of room for two of us. Beds were comfortable and the room had a small fridge and microwave. Room had a up north feel, great view of the lake and the leaves on the trees were changing colors so it was very beautiful.
