So I'm not exactly sure how to rate this place. We ended up staying on a whim after taking a road trip to do some fishing. Sounded perfect, had motel rooms, on a lake, priced right and bar/restaurant on-site. Looked and sounded great. The lady that checked us in was very nice. We got our key and headed to the...

I stayed in the Paradise cabin with my family for 2 nights and we really liked it, but I have to agree with some of the other reviewers that the pictures and drawings are a bit misleading, it's in serious need of a facelift, and they have packed in RVs in every available space. It would be nice if the...

Although they don't out and out lie, the pictures and hand drawn map do not tell the real story of the resort. It needs a facelift. And the buildings are much closer together than you would think. In addition, they have jammed trailers into evey conceivable space. We were surprised that there were no towels in the cabin. With much...

Silver Rapids Lodge is a fairly basic resort, but it has good things to offer. It's located on a chain of lakes just a few miles away from Ely, with enough pristine far-north water to keep any outdoor enthusiast busy indefinitely. The resort owners and staff are friendly and helpful, and the bar and restaurant are welcome assets. The resort...

We stayed in the deluxe 2 bedroom motel suite. The garbage containers are kept directly....and I mean directly under the bedroom window....the only window in that bedroom. The beds are old - mattresses and box springs are literally falling apart. Peeling paint everywhere. The southwestern? themed furniture is uncomfortable and dirty. The carpet is filthy and stinks. There was an...

The deluxe suite room is absolutely in need of remodeling and upgrade. Totally drab and dreary. The location looking over farm lake is indeed beautiful but going out on the deck area one is afraid it may collapse. The mattress has to be over 10 years old, instant back pain no restful sleep. Tried the couch bed and found it...

Run down, out of date dumpy cabins. Couldn't wait to get home & shower, the place was gross. Was hoping for a stress-free romantic get-away and ended paying way too much for nasty, trashy over-embellished accommodations. Save yourself the trouble and stay elsewhere!

My wife and I have a seasonal campsite here and The fishing is awesome and so are the staff of this resort. We spend as much time as possible in the summer. Ely is Gods Country if you have never been there you need to go.

Wonderful fishing location between Farm & White Iron lakes. There was no charge to dock our boat for the week. The cabin overlooks a bay on Farm lake. Beautiful views from our nightly campfire. We experienced great fishing (walleye & northern) right from the pier. Our 16 & 8 year olds loved the rustic cabin, however this was not an...
