Reviewed 3 November 2016

Grandy Ely is a very beautiful lodge. I felt as if I was in a big rustic log cabin, but had all the comforts of an upscale hotel. The pool area is well appointed as are the rooms and lobby. The bar is so cozy and well laid out, and the staff is warm and friendly. If heading to the Boundary Waters I highly recommend the Grand Ely lodge. It is extremely clean and the views are breath taking.

Dear nassey,

Thank you very much for your kind review.

Yes, our lodge does have that log cabin feel to it and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay here. I am also happy that our staff was warm and friendly. We are a great spot to stay before and after your Boundary Waters trip with the pool, hot tub and sauna available for your use.

We hope that you make it an annual visit and look forward to seeing you again.

The stay was nice and relaxing. Clean hotel and beautiful views. Close to town and great for adventures in nature. Could have had better service in the restaurant. Our waitress was rude. Our food was good except we didnt care for the au gratins.

Nice comfortable stay after a day at the International Wolf Center. Good food (biggest and best walleye sandwich ever) and great location. Nice pool and good hiking nearby. Friendly and helpful staff.
