We've stayed in a cabin on some previous visits to Melgeorge's, but recently stayed in one of the lodge rooms for a few nights. It was constructed and set up as I would want the room if it was my cabin. Everything worked (AC, hot water, shower, TV, fridge, microwave) and without the typical worn look of rentals in northern...

Melgeorge's is the best Lodge and Resort that our fishing group has visited. The staff and ownership couldn't be nicer and make you feel very welcome. The accomodations couldn't have been more comfortable. The food was terrific. We have been here four times over the years and chances are we will be back.

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The hotel is located at the end of a gravel road next to a beautiful lake. You feel completely away from everything which was great. We had a great time using the free canoes. We really enjoyed sitting down by the lake in the evening and playing corn toss...

Our vacation started in Ely and then we traveled about an hour away to Melgeorges. We had called ahead of time and made a reservation. Upon arriving, we went to check in. They just asked us our name and gave us our key. No paper work to fill out and they said we could just pay upon checking out. These...
