Cabin 16 is a beautiful, modern two-story cabin built right at the water’s edge on White Iron Lake. With a full wall of windows on the lake-facing side, guests have access to a remarkable view, as well as comfortable accommodations for eight in northern Minnesota near Ely.

This three-bedroom cabin has a contemporary roofline, an open-concept living space and 10 feet of shoreline on White Iron Lake — the perfect vacation spot for anyone hoping to spend their days propped on a warm rock in the sun casting a line in the clear water.

The home was newly renovated in 2014, with a sitting room and dining area, a fully equipped kitchen with new appliances and two remastered bathrooms with vanities. The lower-level screen room was added in 2014 and is a great place to enjoy the lake view — without the bugs.

Sleeping arrangements: Cabin 16 has one king-sized bed in the master suite, one queen-sized bed, and two sets of bunk beds with twin-sized mattresses lofted over full-sized beds.

Reminder: guests will need to bring their own bath and dish towels.

Things To Do

White Iron Beach Resort is located at the heart of northern Minnesota wilderness tourism and surrounded by the Superior National Forest. The neighboring town of Ely is located at one of the few entrance points to the vast Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Contact us for information about how to get an entry permit through the USDA Forest Service.

The Resort is also centrally located to a number of scenic hiking and biking trails and unique landmarks such as the Tower-Soudan Underground Mine and the International Wolf Center. We offer complimentary kayaks and canoes at the resort, as well as onsite rentals for pontoons and motor fishing boats — the better to pull in native bass, crappie, walleye and northern pike.

The downtown area of Ely is a great spot to explore for dining options, shopping and entertainment — not to mention all of the luxury amenities we offer onsite, including a sauna, a sandy beach area, a children’s play area, boat docks, fire pits, a game room, and basketball and volleyball courts.

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.
