“Family owned and best in the BWCA”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Jim & Joan Blauch – and their family – are absolutely the greatest BWCA outfitters. The really helped us prep for our week into the B-Dub. We had plans on taking a different route – and Jim’s guidance on what we are looking for (massive amounts of fish!) was instrumental in helping us with our best week in the Northland. He probably forgot more about fishing in the region then most people know. A true expert if you are planning your trip whether a first timer or veterans like our crew.

Joan was great as well. She was very accommodating and extremely helpful with every little detail. After our journey out of the BWCA, we stayed an extra night at one of their very comfortable cabins, and enjoyed a community get-together fish fry. Instant friends were made that night.

I’ve been to well over a half dozen outfitters around the Boundary Waters, and I can tell you they are the best and friendliest in the region. We’ll be back… they good people and a great property.

Room Tip: Whether you need a great week on a powerboat lake or a drop off to an area entry point into the BWCA...

Joan and Jim have remodeled the cabins here at Moose Track Adventures for your comfort and with every need in mind.,,right down to the magazines in the rack! They are beautifully and thoughtfully done. it was as quiet and restful as we needed but active, too, We were first timers in Ely and the wonder of the Boundary Waters. Our hosts made our canoe adventure easy, safe and memorable. (We are in our 60's!) Joan gave clear directions for entering the park and suggested places to rest or explore. We didn't make use of the kitchen and all of it's gadgets but ate at a historic lodge nearby. One night, as I watched Joan and her son watering the flower boxes on the cabin porches; they were smiling and laughing as they went about their work. This place is their home and the work is a labor of love for this family. It's like home, but better for us!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Eagle cabin. it is right on the water and near the dock... but all of the cabins ar...

This was my family's second trip to Moose Track Adventures. Jim & Joan are wonderful hosts, along with their two kids. The scenery is beautiful, the cabins are perfect and above anything else, it's relaxing and there are many places to throw the anchor down to do some fishing.

Went for the all day guided fishing trip. The guide was very knowledge able. Very helpful, and a lot of fun to spend all day out on the lake with. The shore lunch option is a great add one, and an experience like no other. I highly recommend them. Next time I am in Ely this is the only ones I will use.

The cabin was adorable. It was right on the lake. We had hummingbirds and loons in view a great deal of the time. Our host and hostess was very helpful. They provided us with a guide for a boundary water excursion, forks for roasting smores, wood for the firepit, and sun tan lotion. Anything we needed they helped us out. We roasted marshmallow smores in our personal fire pit and played cards in the cabin every night. My teenage girls said it was the best vacation they every had.

We LOVED our stay here...cabins are clean and cute and RIGHT on the lake. Sunset views were amazing. The owners are very friendly and have incredible knowledge about the area that they are willing to share. We rented canoes from them for a three night excursion into the Boundary Waters and the canoes were high quality Kevlar canoes to make portages. We will most certainly be back for more amazing adventures! :)
