Stay anywhere else. We checked into their "nicest" cabin & walked thru a spiderweb in the doorway to see bugs in the shower. The place was nestled between a parking lot & a cliff with a view of the freeway. Not safe for kids or dogs. We politely explained our dilemma & asked for a refund, which the girl at...

My wife and I recently stayed at one of the winterized cabins at the Silver Rapids Lodge. The cabin was very clean and the stafff was friendly. The location was outstanding, looking over the lake. We had a great time snowmobiling on the Tomahawk trail which runs right past the lodge. Good value if you can get the snowmobile/cabin package...

This lodge has been in operation for 80 years, appears it hasn't been updated in at least 30 years. Game room ancient and worn out. Stayed in one of their "Deluxe Lakeside Suites". Everything in the suite was very old and worn out, including the bed. Room had been cleaned but carpets were badly stained and there was obviously mold...

We camped at Silver Rapids Campground Saturday, July 10 to Wednesday, July 14; When they say it is lakeside they mean lakeside. Your camper is only 6-10 feet from the water. We had a 10 ft pop-up, so this wasnt a problem for us. The campsite are all gravel with no grass, which was a little disappointing, plus very small....

My husband and I spent a few days in a cabin at Silver Rapids. We wanted a rustic, quiet place on the lake and we got it. The owners and staff are super friendly. The cabin was very clean, could use some updating but that wasn't important to us since we normally backpack in the woods. It's very convenient to...

My husband and I stayed in one of the motel suites with his parents for a long weekend in June. We had a beautiful view of Farm Lake from our room. The room was just OK. We had a full kitchen, queen bed, pull out couch and bathroom. The carpet needed to be replaced but that's about the only thing...

My wife and I have visited the Ely area many times, staying at a small resort. We've always enjoyed the beauty, serenity, great fishing, and friendly people. This year we decided it might be fun to visit Ely in the dead of winter since neither of us had ever been there during the cold months. Along with another couple, we...
