The resort is always buzzing with boats, kids on the playground, friends around the firepit, Disc Golfers, hikers taking advantage of our 35 acres, competitive horseshoe games, fish tales being told in the fish cleaning house, teens in the Game Room. But you don’t have to paddle very far along the shore to find peace and quiet.

It’s time to get together with family and friends and take a summer vacation with an adventurous twist in the heart of the Superior National Forest. Take advantage of being on the doorstep of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) the largest wilderness preserve east of the Rocky Mountains.

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. The cabins are amazing, just the type you want to stay in if you are up north. One week stay and you will be shedding a tear when you leave to go back home. Rick Flickinger

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
