I and my thirteen year old grandson just returned from a four night, three day fishing trip stay at Timber Trail Lodge. The cabin was warm, clean, well equipped and the two twin beds were comfie. Our guide, Bob Derr, took us fishing for two of the three days on the boundary waters--specifically Bass Wood Lake. In order to get...

We stayed in the Diamond Willow cabin at Timber Trail Lodge on a recent snowmobile trip. It is located on a beautiful setting on the shore of Farm Lake. It was clean and well maintained. It has easy access to the Tomahawk snowmobile trail that had been freshly groomed and was in excellent condition. I would definitely recommend the Timber...

We stayed at the Diamond Willow cabin over Christmas and it was fantastic! It was so peaceful and lovely. We had snow the day before and it was postcard perfect. When I called for the reservation the lady I talked to was so informative and very helpful. We loved our winter getaway. Thanks for everything!

Very nice outdoors! The outdoors is so beautiful and it's not like some cabins and lodges that are gross and smelly! There's a very nice beach area and cabins are always very clean and modern. The staff is very friendly and I like that there is a lot of docks. The docks bye the swamp is very calm and neat!

I did a last minute trip to Ely MN last weekend (Aug 2015). I stayed at Timber Trail Lodge. The Lodge is located by Boundary waters, they also rent kayak and canoe at reasonable price. Cabin was very clean and immaculate space. I was surprised that there was no Fish smell! Rooms were well kept. Do watch out for bitting...

The staff here were so friendly, it was almost creepy. :) Although the cabins were close to one another, we found it to be pretty private. The 3 bedroom cabin we rented was very, VERY small (it was my boyfriend and I for the weekend) and it was just perfect for us. We were on the lake 75% of the...

The perfect place to stay with family for a fishing trip. Even my teenage daughter had a blast. We will absolutely be back and we love Ely Minnesota! The Boundary Waters are gorgeous to look at from shore.

Our family went to northern MN on a family/fishing vacation and choose Timber Trail Lodge as our destination. We are so glad we choose Timber Trail Lodge. We have stayed at other resorts and this was the nicest we have been at so far. The staff was wonderful, especially Kathy in the office and the outside service boys. The fishing...

The fish treated us equally well as our gracious Hosts did. My 2nd year back, but this time it was Sept. instead of June. Cabin was as clean and as well supplied with utensils and china as it was last year. Fortunately there were extra blankets already in place in the drawers as the weather turned cold and very wet..The...

My son and I stayed at the lodge from Aug 10 thru Aug 14, 2013. We packaged a three day fishing adventure with Rob Nelson owner of the Ely Fishing Guide Co. Our cabin was clean and very comfortable. The owners and staff could not have been more accommodating. The location is very convenient to the shops and restaurants in...
