Unique Features

Cabin 3 is one of 26 traditional-style northern Minnesota cabins nestled between the trees at the edge of White Iron Lake. Rent one cabin for a couple’s getaway or a family vacation, or book several cabins at once to accommodate reunions or large-group fishing trips. The town of Ely is unique in being one of the only access points to the untouched beauty of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. The resort can provide you with permits upon request through our partnership with the USDA Forest Service. Run away to the Northwoods and enjoy the fishing, the fresh air and the breathtaking views!

Things To Do

White Iron Lake is best known for the excellent fishing, and especially as the source of trophy walleye in years past. Rent one of our onsite motor boats, troll out the back of your canoe, or cast a line from shore — you’re sure to snag a decent-sized bass, crappie, walleye or pike.

All of our cabins are located within easy walking distance to the docks and the resort’s clean, sandy beach. You’ll love the views, and what better way to spend the day than lounging in the sun lakeside, wading the shallows, building sandcastles and munching on a picnic?

Guests can venture into the nearby touristing town of Ely to explore the downtown area, browse the shops and try out the local entertainment and dining scene. Pay a visit to the International Wolf Center or the historic mines, or take a tour of the countryside via hiking and biking trails.

Extremely clean cabins. Wonderful, very nice owners. Would definitely stay here again. Hopefully sometime in the summer when it is warmer so we can go fishing on the beautiful lake! — Roxy S.
Beautiful, friendly, clean. — Benita P.
WIBR is absolutely beautiful. We found it this year and have been back a couple of times and have another trip planned for August. We LOVE it here. The cabins are very nice and updated, the beach is the best one we have found, the kids love the playground, and Sandy and Kerry are wonderful people. We can’t wait to make more memories here. — Kurston D.
Beautiful setting. Very well maintained resort. Charming, clean, comfortable cabins with great views. Hosts are always ready to help. All the amenities you could ask for. The Lodge adds a lot. Seems to attract nice people and friendly dogs. We have found our favorite place in Ely. We will be back as often as we can. — Linda L.
The pontoon boat rental was reasonably priced and we were able to catch some nice fish from it. The owners were available throughout our stay and were more than accommodating. I didn't walk the grounds much, but it seemed that most(if not all) the cabins were within 75 yards of the water. I would highly recommended WIBR to anyone looking for a great place to escape near Ely. — Jeremy G.
Always love bringing the family to White Iron Beach Resort! Kerry and Sandy's hospitality is fantastic. This year we brought our dog and she had a blast too! Great place to get away from the hustle and bustle for the city life and just relax. Can't wait to go back next year. — Tori E.
My husband and I absolutely love it here. The people of Ely are so friendly and accommodating. Kerry and Sandy you are absolutely the best people in the world. We have been coming up here for more than 20 years and never had a bad time. Recommend this place to anybody who really wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city from the hustle and bustle of the city. Or a romantic getaway. — LaVerne B.
We had the BEST time. First visit to northern Minnesota for my grandkids and son in law, they loved it all. The last night of our visit we went to the beach and looked a sky full of stars. We loved that the kids could borrow games,shoot pool, and listen to music by the campfire. Cabin was great for our large family, the resort owners were very nice, and very helpful. We really enjoyed our stay. — Dawn H.
Just one week ago, we were relaxing at White Iron Beach Resort, and we definitely miss it already! The resort and the surrounding area are simply gorgeous. The cabin was very well kept, with plenty of space. Sandy and Kerry provided everything we needed for a fun and comfortable stay. This is a wonderful choice for families, large or small, and we felt right at home very quickly. Thank you WIBR! — Emily W.
