Enjoy quaint guest quarters with historical character, housed within a former grand household. Your home away from home is located just three blocks from the town center, and is nearby to local medical facilities. As Ely is the gateway to the Boundary Waters, visitors can enjoy access to the multitude of options to immerse in the peace of the wilderness. Spend the day on the lake and come home to a full kitchen where you can cook your catch. Then relax on your private deck for the evening.
“Sheila's place is a nice dormer apartment at the top level, with everything one can possibly need in it. It is very cosy, quiet, nicely decorated, thoughtfully supplied, and well-located. The beds are comfortable! Internet works well. Sheila is a great host, who responds to communications quickly. Thank you very much!”
Come visit our beautiful hand scribed log cabin on gorgeous, peaceful Sixmile Lake, near Ely, MN. Stunning views and quiet time away await you in this cozy northwoods cabin.
“This is really a special little cabin in a beautiful, isolated setting, a perfect getaway for quarantine times. All the prior rave reviews are accurate (and the one negative review now reads like a Debbie Downer comedy skit after our stay). A few answers to questions I had: It's plenty deep, clean and clear to jump into the lake and swim off the excellent dock. There's plenty of lawn chairs, paddles, life jackets, firewood and charcoal on hand. For those not lucky enough to unplug entirely from their jobs, we had reliable cell service via both Verizon and T-Mobile throughout our stay. If you don't want to cook every night, a few of the restaurants in Ely are doing curbside takeout during quarantine and it looks like they could use the business; we enjoyed our order from Boathouse Brewpub (Fri night fish fry). Hiking options in Bear Head Lake SP (Norberg Lake trail is best) and in Soudan Mine/Vermillion SP (Miner's Trail) are great and only 15 mins away, but it's worth going 30 mins to Bass Lake Trail just north of Ely (2- to 7-mile loops), one of the nicest hikes I've done in all of MN. I hope to make it back to this cabin in future summers and explore the area more!”

“We highly recommend The Guest House for couples looking for a getaway! The Guest House was remote enough to enjoy stargazing while, at the same time, perfectly located for our day trips to Tower/Soudan/Ely and to Virginia/Chisholm/Hibbing. We really appreciated the house itself, with a very comfortable bed after long days of walking and nice amenities (the coffee for the mornings was a welcome treat). We found that we were barely able to scratch the surface of things to do in the area, so we're already thinking of coming back and we're planning on staying at The Guest House when we do.”
