This is the second time my wife and I have stayed here. An older renovated house split into several rooms. We stayed in the Amber room which is on the main floor with the front porch outside our door. The porch was nice for sitting to enjoy the evening. We arrived after the bakery closed but we called ahead and... More

This is a big house with everyone using the kitchen, patio, and family room. The place is very clean and has games to play and a big kitchen table to play on. We went with three groups in the house. It was a great location to be at in Ely. Close walk to gas station, Piragus and restaurants. We had... More

Upon arriving at this large home on the main drag, we pull in to the parking area right beside the place. An envelope taped to the door with our name on it contained instructions on how to gain access and where to park. The shared kitchen is well furnished with most everything you need to prepare a homemade meal. We... More

We booked one of the lofts to stay in and they upgraded us to a Cabin free of charge for mechanical issues. My husband and I had a great time. The cabin was lovely and had a great view. We went on a beautiful canoe ride on the lake.

We stayed at the "in" and had a great time. Very comfortable stay. Spacious. The dog was very comfortable as well. Clean. The community space is very nice and cozy. The kitchen is well equipped. The decor is nice with the wood being the best feature.

We came up for a short 3-day trip, and as regular to the Ely area for the last 23 years, this was one place I had yet to stay!
