No two visits are ever alike! When vacationing at Northern Lights Lodge, you'll always find something new and with each return visit you'll feel like you are "coming home" to the northwoods. Our hospitality is unparalleled and every vacation creates a life time of memories.

Our guests share in that classic Minnesota resort experience whether vacationing in one of our newest deluxe accommodations, a vacation home style cabin or a traditional and classic northwoods cabin.

If your family is ready to explore northern Minnesota, then we invite you to plan your next Minnesota vacation right here in Ely with us on Bear Island Lake in the heart of the Superior National Forest.

Spend your day hiking, fishing, boating, paddling, listening to the Loons or bird watching. Relax over dinner in your cabin, around a cozy bonfire or enjoy dining at one of the many restaurants in Ely. Winter in Ely is just as adventurous with snowshoeing, dog sledding, snowmobiling and fishing. At the end of the day relax in front of your fire or enjoy a steamy sauna steps from your cabin. Of course, each night before your turn in we suggest you take a moment to search the skyline for the auora borealis and if they aren't dancing star gazing is just as breathtaking. The Ely area offers something for everyone all year long and Northern Lights Lodge is the perfect location to start and finish each day.
