Reviews

Wife and I spent our first week here in early June and just fell in love with the cozyness of this cabin. The Manager was attentive and promptly took care of any request we had. We had them rent us a boat for the week and it was waiting at the dock upon our arrival; clean, looked almost new and never had a problem with it. Returning next year and we can't wait!
We spent a wonderful week watching the fall colors and the deer. The pictures do not do the home justice! The home was clean and very comfortable and cozy. The owner was very helpful and someone was always available if we had a question. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.
Ely is a very special place that allows us much needed rest in a truly beautiful and comfortable place surrounded by nature's finest.
The home was beautiful! We would recommend it to family and friends. Owners are very helpful if you have a question. We were there when the leaves were at fall color peak — just a wonderful, relaxing vacation. The views from the home of the lake were breathtaking. The grounds at the cabin were quiet and tranquil. We swam, we played cards, we played yard games, and enjoyed many fires at night with smores. We were able to relax and reconnect in a beautiful setting.
