Grand Ely Lodge Resort & Conference Center
I was very nervous about booking my stay here because all the room pictures have the 1970s dark flower covers. They should really update their pictures because the sheets and duvet are all white!!! The place is so cute and is located rite by a lake and have so much to offer. We went snowshoeing and that's complimentary, they also have ice fishing, and a bar to watch sports, not to mention their restaurant is pretty good. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. I would definitely stay at this resort again.
A beautiful lodge, great people, great food, and fun. Everyone at the lodge treats us like gold. We were married there, so it has always been a special home away from home for us. Our vacation plans changed at the last minute due to an elderly parent that needed care, so we were able to stay only a few days. But we will be back for Thanksgiving as usual, and also New Year's. Since Jennifer and I both teach, we try hard to squeeze in a quick visit as our plans allow at any time during the year. Yes, it is a 14 hour drive (one way) to get there, but well worth it. Your will not find more quality people than at the Ely Lodge. Also, love the new remodeling that was in progress. We would love to have that flooring in our house.
I had a great stay at the G.E.L. great little resort in Ely with a nice staff. I love the Lake views & restaurant. The pool is nice & the Hot tub is clutch after a long day in the Minnesota cold. My only critique is they need to update the rooms a little & upgrade the rooms TVs. All together nice hotel for a winter or summer get away.
If you are planning a wedding this is a place to go to! Kelsey and her wedding staff are AMAZING!! I can't praise them enough. They were extremely helpful with every detail! Making the wedding day much more relaxed. The rest of the staff was very welcoming and the rooms are gorgeous!! I would recommend this lodge to any of my friends and family!
The Grand Ely Lodge was a fantastic location to hold a conference. Their main hall was large enough for our group. With the smaller breakout walls you are able to split into smaller groups for presentations or meetings!
