Veterans On The Lake Resort
Ranked #25 of 34 Speciality Lodging in Ely
Reviewed 8 August 2011

VOTLR was a delightful surprise! We stayed in a one bedroom cabin with a lovely view of Fall Lake. The resort is approximately 5 miles east of Ely, MN on the Fernberg Rd., so accessiblity to the stores, shops, and restaurants in town is very easy - directly off the highway, no long dirt road to navigate to get to your cabin on the lake!

The cabin had log walls and ceiling, a small yet completely functional kitchen with all utensils and dishes provided, a shower-only bath, and a double-size bed. It was very clean! There were dish rags and bedding provided, but you need to bring your own bath towels and wash clothes, as well as any additional pillows (2 on the bed).

We stayed in Cabin #30 which is a tri-plex, 2 bedroom cabins on each side, all under one roof. We had quiet neighbors, but you could still hear the shower and the toilet flushing. Realistically, we were only in our cabin to sleep and eat breakfast - otherwise we were enjoying all the naterual beauty Ely has to offer!

The resort has a heated pool, kids' playground, basketball courts, as well as very nice paved walking trails through the resort. A boat comes with each cabin rental (no motor, but can be rented) and also has other boats for rent (pontoons). For winter months, if you enjoy snowmobiling or cross country skiing, it has direct access to one of the many trails in the area. Also, good to know, you do not need to be a veteran of our military to stay here - you just need to have a vet in your family.

Lastly, the staff was very friendly and show great pride in their resort. This is an older resort that requires a lot of TLC, but the staff obviously care for the buildings and the grounds in a meticulous manner.
