We've stopped in twice on our winter visit to Ely, and both times the lounge was warm (warm wood fire going), and the staff was super friendly. The Bloodies are GREAT there, and it's a very relaxing atmosphere!

We had several evening meals here this weekend. The food is average but the view of White Iron lake in the evening is wonderful. Take your meal outside and sit on one of the picnic tables and watch the sunset.

Very accommodating and friendly staff. Food and beverage service was very good. Canoe rentals affordable and in good condition. Two room suite was perfect for 5 people. The weekend getaway and lodge was better than we expected.
