Ely is a very special place that allowed us much needed rest in a truly beautiful and comfortable place surrounded by natures finest.---Lorelee, Minnesota
Marilyn, Illinois - The home was beautiful! We would recommend it to family and friends. Owners were very helpful if you have a question. We were there when the leaves were at fall color peak - just a wonderful, relaxing vacation. The views from the home of the lake were breathtaking.
Leslie, Washington - We spent a wonderful week watching the fall colors and the deer. The pictures do not do the home justice! The home was clean and very comfortable and cozy. The owner was very helpful and someone was always available if we had a question. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.
