Unique Features

Our Ely cabins on Garden Lake don’t get much better. We have 9 cabins at our Minnesota resort, so if your small group getaway turns into a reunion, we have rooms for everyone! Cabin 2 is located at the end of the resort near the store and fish cleaning house which you’ll need for the days catch of smallmouth bass and crappie.

Since you plan and book with us here at the Deer Ridge Resort, we can give you some fishing tips that will improve your odds. We’ll mark up a lake map for you because we want our guests to be successful. If you’re searching for a trophy northern pike then 1,328 acre Farm Lake is the best in the state. Like walleye? White Iron delivers fish in the 5-8 pound range. Inside of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area is South Farm Lake and yes you can use motorized water craft. Let us know if South Farm Lake is on your list - we can help you with the daily permit (plan way ahead for these permits). These lakes are part of the chain!

Things To Do

There are lots of hiking trails right here. Deer Ridge Resort also has disc golf, badminton, horseshoe court, game room, reading room.

If your planning a trip to Ely, fishing is likely a big part of your getaway. The White Iron Chain of lakes is a four lake chain with over 6,000 acres of world class fishing. That’s a lot of water so in addition to a marked up map, you might want to consider a fishing guide for a day - We’ll coordinate a guide from Basswood Trails Guide Service. This is a great idea if you’re thinking about making the White Iron Chain an annual tradition.


Things to remember: Kitchen and bath towels.

What a great resort, location and hospitality!!! If you are ever thinking of planning a trip to Ely, you will not be disappointed with Deer Ridge Resort, or stop in to check it out if you are just in the area and looking for a place to stay in the future.

Great little resort. The cabins were clean and well maintained. The amenities are great. (kayaks, canoes, laundry facility, sauna, disc golf, hiking) The owners are so friendly and helpful, you definitely get that home away from home feeling. Jessica Luster
3rd year in a row and going to book for next year. The girls start asking a week after we leave when we're coming back. So close to so much and yet far enough away. Wifi now in all the cabins makes it easy to make friends jealous that they are not here. Great place with great people and nice families from near and far. Tipper Meow
Friendly and caring staff! Such a great place to stay and willing to accommodate any needs! Samantha Robinson
Great lake and location. Friendly staff! My teenage boys and daughter loved fishing. It was a great family vacation spot. Brenda Andres Kirk
