Always hospitable, personable and meets all my needs. It is self contained with whatever you might need. A must to stay at. Every detail is provided for your stay. And definitely don't forget to purchase one of the beautiful pieces of clothing!!

Very kid-friendly with spacious rooms. Location was perfect - short walk to town, plenty of trails and access to the lake right on site. Beautiful views from our room on the top floor. Sometimes the staff lacked the polish I'd expect of a luxury resort which made me question the value for the price at times. Having said that, I...

A solo trip to Ely is therapy for the soul. I always visit the Bear Center and the Wolf Center. Adorable town. Merchant owners are friendly and always offer good chatter. Love Ely and love the Lodge's accommodations.

Check in was simple, room was clean, comfortable and had plenty of room for two of us. Beds were comfortable and the room had a small fridge and microwave. Room had a up north feel, great view of the lake and the leaves on the trees were changing colors so it was very beautiful.

It was a pleasant fun weekend attending a family wedding. Choosing the Grand Ely Lodge worked out well for us. Pleasant and helpful staff, smooth check-in and check-out. We splurged on room service for breakfast which was delicious and speedy.

Staff, room, pool and restaurant were great. We took the grandkids on a little fall trip and visited the Wolf and Besr Centers. The beds at the lodge were comfy, the pool with hot tub and sauna felt great. We also had a great waitress at the lodge restaurant.
