Reflections (for 2) is our newly-remodeled Studio Lakeshore couples cabin filled with warm knotty pine interior. Just outside is a sun-filled lakeside deck with patio furniture and a charcoal Weber grill. Eat inside or outside on the picnic table. Our clean air, pure waters, family friendly remote resort invites you to travel beyond the beaten path to the Echo Trail. A trail that leads to 1,800 acres of water, 14 islands, and numerous inlets and bays.

Reflections is filled with well-stocked kitchen amenities: Full-size gas range, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, small electrical appliances, fully-equipped with dinnerware and cookware. Big Lake is well-stocked too: With yellow perch and walleye! Also common are northern pike, smallmouth bass and black crappie. If fishing is the number one priority for your vacation this resort will never disappoint.

Sleeping arrangement: Queen-sized bed, perfect for 2! Full size futon for extra guests.
Full bath with tub. Bathroom is handicap-accessible.

Unique Features

The vacation choices you have here and in the Ely, MN area are truly endless. How will you spend your week at northern Minnesota's most remote drive-in resort? Watching abundant wildlife; hiking numerous trails; canoe day trips in the famed Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, backroad exploring in the Superior National Forest. No matter what you do - HERE is where you'll see and taste life's most rewarding pleasures. Much of the area has remained virtually unchanged for generations, and the lakeside fish fry’s are unforgettable.

Things To Do

As soon as you reach the Echo Trail your vacation begins. Wind through dense pine and birch forests with impressive vistas - this is an unplugged world filled with a different sort of (www) - our is Woods, Water, Wilderness. This Journey winds from Ely, MN to Crane Lake. Once you arrive, plan on joining us Sunday morning for a complimentary brunch and meet fellow guests and friendly resort staff. Get the latest fishing report and some tips on where to fish.

Big Lake is one of the DNR's top-rated walleye lakes. But if you’re in the area to see more Ely, then plan on visits to the North American Bear Center, Ely-Winton Historical Society, the Soudan Underground Mine State Park and the International Wolf Center (go on evening howling expedition).

The remote theme continues in the Boundary Waters. Ask us about BWCAW canoe trips. For the day, "you” are a modern day Voyageur, paddle and portage the same water trails Voyageurs used hundreds of years ago.
