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
