Read what some of our past guests have to say about their time at Grand Ely Lodge:

"The Grand Ely Lodge has always been a very special for both of us. We were married there and return at least 4-5 times each year to enjoy the seasons and wonderful people. With every visit they exceed our expectations in every way. They have our highest recommendation, and you will not find a more beautiful resort and quality people." Brock D., Illinois

“The rooms are clean - and large with the perfect North Woods décor. The beds are super comfortable. The staff here is great, as well. Enjoy the close proximity to Ely's small town shops and restaurants and also the walking path around Miner's Lake. The in-house restaurant's menu choices are varied - love the Walleye sandwich.” – pacnw4043, Seattle (TripAdvisor)

“We stayed here last summer with our eight year old granddaughter. We were delighted. The price was more reasonable than we expected, given the atmosphere of the hotel and the location. The pool was clean and large, and we enjoyed our time in it immensely. Our room had rustic furnishings and a north woods décor that was pleasing, but everything was very new and spotlessly clean. I loved the dark green colors. Everything was very comfortable.” – Lynda C, Parma, MI (TripAdvisor)

“The panoramic view of Shagawa Lake from Grand Ely Lodge was beautiful and the surrounding hillsides in peak fall colors looked just like a Norman Rockwell painting. We found the desk staff to be friendly and helpful, as well as the dining and bar staff, and the food was very good and reasonably priced. The rooms were tastefully decorated in a north woods décor, quiet and comfortable, as were the beds. A great value and we would definitely stay there again.” – falije, Cannon Falls, MI (TripAdvisor)

“Easy check in, darling Northwoods decorated lobby with fireplace. Cozy and lively bar with attentive staff and delicious food. Husband enjoyed his wings (Jack Daniel's sauced) and bacon cheeseburger, I loved my walleye dinner. Very fresh fish! Our king room was on the third floor, lakeside, with an incredible view of Shagawa lake. Very clean and quiet night's rest on a super comfy mattress. Delicious breakfast of eggs Benedict, highly recommended, perfectly poached eggs and decadent hollandaise.” – htflsh, Minneapolis, MN (TripAdvisor)
