Wooded, private, completely modern and right next to the docks and lake! Cabin 18 at White Iron Beach Resort is front and center for optimal lake views. Resort amenities include a sauna, game room, volleyball & basketball courts, a playground round and a beach that did not skimp out on sand - everyone can build sand castles.

Before you step in to Cabin 18, you’ll notice the large wrap around deck with lots of tables, chairs, benches and a great firepit. Wood floors stretch from living room & dining room to the kitchen. Newly renovated with Knotty pine ceilings too. The screened in porch is bright and sunny thanks to the large windows all around and a sliding glass door leading to the deck.

Well stocked kitchen with elbow room. Bring as many snacks as you want, we have lots of cupboard space and new counters. Cabin 18 is one of 26 cabins (or duplex) at this historic Minnesota resort. This is our 102nd year of welcoming guests to the shores of White Iron Lake!

Unique Features

Dining table is next to a large picture window overlooking the dock, lake and islands - what a view! Oh yeah, we have easy access to The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) - a one-of-a-kind million acre water park for adventurers.

How’s the fishing? White Iron Lake and the entire BWCAW has outstanding fishing. Catch trophy walleye and hard-fighting crappie; cast for bass or net a lunker northern pike. When you book your cabin ask us to mark up a “hot spot” fishing map. We want guests of all ages to always remember catching and cleaning fish at White Iron Beach Resort in Ely, MN.

Things To Do

Some of the best tourism draws in Ely are the North American Bear Center, International Wolf Center, Dorothy Molter Museum, Trezona Trail Trailhead (paved trail - groomed in the winter for skiing), Bass Lake Trail (hike along the lake), Kawishiwi Falls Trail (short hike to the falls). There are more than 20 trails of various lengths and difficulty. The best part is that no matter which way you point your compass, you’ll be surrounded by the Superior National Forest.

Creating wilderness resort vacation memories for folks around the world is why we do what we do. What makes it so easy is our location on White Iron Lake, which is part of a 5-lake chain that extends into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. You can boat from our resort into the “Wilderness.” You don’t have to be an expert either. Our guests young and old always take time to experience it.

Our resort guests also carve out time to let some small-town atmosphere sink in. Ely, MN has plenty of homemade goods, handmade crafts, and of course bait & tackle that line its Sheridan St. Eat local! Enjoy a sizzling steak, a wild rice dish, or a walleye cooked to ELY perfection. Find a few empty stools at friendly bar and get to know Ely over a cold drink.

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 Hebl Manning
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 Wheeler
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 Shelly Ward
Beautiful, friendly, clean. Benita Perry
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 Dahl
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 Lawrence
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 Grev
