We were only there for a couple of nights but it was the most relaxing time we have had in a long time. We were able to put the electronics down and just escape the rest of the world. It allowed 3 friends to catch up on lives with out kids around. Much needed!! We tried to stay an additional night but unfortunately they were booked solid. Great for them but sad for us. We will definitely be back and for more than 2 nights!!

I stayed at the the resort and wanted to get information on northern Minnesota wilderness experiences. I thought I'd try to talk to the resort owners and hoped they would educate me. They (Jim and Joan) turned out to be engaging and interesting, knowledgeable fun to be with. After spending a couple of days and several hours talking with them I trusted them completely. I enjoyed spending time with them. They have really cozy cabins with beautiful lake views and I slept like a baby. Jim has long successful experience in the wilderness and is the guy you want to have outfitted you, or better yet have at your side, if mother nature turns on you in the wilderness. Their motives are pure and Jim's leadership is solid. You will not be disappointed.

This is a family run resort with great personal touches. We always take unplanned short trips up to Northern Minnesota lake areas and this place has become our favorite! Joan and Jim are very personable and made our stays comfortable. The cabins have excellent views of the lake and great for families or couples. The large dining table with the lake views makes it a fun way to share a meal or play games. Definitely a cozy, relaxing place to unwind!

We had never been to the BWCA before this trip and were flying in so little room to bring gear. Moose Track arranged for everything from 2 nights in lakeside cabin before the trip, guide for 4 nights, all of the gear, permits, and 2 night stay at the cabins after - even lunch with ice cream sandwiches and cold beer when we came in from the trip. This is a family owned resort, and they take very good care of their guests. They will outfit you with food, gear and food, or gear, guide and food. They also have a guest pot luck one night which was a great time to share what other guests were experiencing and share some good food. Wish we could go back every year.
Full kitchen in the cabins.
The canoeing was strenuous with portages, so be prepared to work.

Room Tip: Cannot get closer to a lake than these cabins because they were built a long time ago. They are small as a result too.

Our stay was outstanding. This was the first time that we had been to Ely, Joan and Jim were awesome. We were there to fish and relax and they delivered on both fronts. Jim was very knowledgeable about the fishing patterns and where to go at that time of year. Joan did a great job of keeping us busy with the local attractions. I would recommend staying here to anyone that is looking to get away and still have some creature comforts. We will be going back next year!
