Imagine freshly caught fish sizzling in the fry pan, lush forests with vistas that have remained unchanged for generations, stars and, sometimes Northern Lights.

Located 23 miles north of Ely, MN on the scenic Echo Trail. Surrounded by the Superior National Forest, close proximity to the famous Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Before making plans for the week, make sure you make it to our Sunday mornings for a complimentary brunch of freshly-baked donuts.

Things To Do

Spending time on the water is an important part of vacation time. Our clean air and pure waters invite you! 1,800 acres of water, 14 islands, and numerous inlets and bays. Our fishing season opens in May. Spring and fall fishing means colder water spurring the larger fish into feeding frenzy. If fishing is the priority then ask about our economical Walleye Fever package: includes a lake view cabin, boats and motors, and initial supply of gas and bait at one low price.

Fishing, hiking, boating on Big Lake, canoe trip adventures in the BWCAW. There is a water park adventure around every bend. We can even supply the boats/motors or canoes plus assist with transportation services to enhance your fishing and canoeing vacation. Paddle one of the most incredible places on earth.

Day trip can include the International Wolf Center, the North American Bear Center, the Ely-Winton Historical Society, and downtown Ely, MN.
