What do guest like most? All ages love our playground and beach filled with lots of sand for building sand castles. Play all day at the resort‘s volleyball and basketball courts, or participate in game night. What else? Trolling for trophy walleye, finding crappie beds, boating a lunker of a northern pike, and casting for bass. You get a scenic lake surrounded by the Superior National Forest and world class Ely, Minnesota fishing.

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
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 Elizabeth
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 Berger
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
