My wife and I have visited the Ely area many times, staying at a small resort. We've always enjoyed the beauty, serenity, great fishing, and friendly people. This year we decided it might be fun to visit Ely in the dead of winter since neither of us had ever been there during the cold months. Along with another couple, we...

My husband and I were married in Ely over Labor Day weekend 2009. We had our rehearsal dinner out at the Silver Rapids Lodge and it was wonderful! The dinner took place in the upstairs loft. It's the perfect spot for entertaining a large group (up to 40 people). It's open and airy and has a nice view of White...

We woke up on Sunday morning and our camper's leafspring was broken so I talked to the owner of the campground and he said he would find someone to fix it. When he could not find anyone to fix it he decide he would try fixing it himself. He did a great job and we were able to make it...

It was more like a parking lot then a campground! Where our picnic table was we could reach the camper on the other side of us! We had to move our fire pit to the road b/c there was no room to have a fire unless we wanted to burn our canopy, which we could not extend all the way...

We recently had a 260 person wedding at Silver Rapids Lodge and WOW!~ It was amazing! Our guests traveled from all over Minnesota and we even had guests travel from Idaho, Rhode Island, North Dakota, Nebraska and Wisconsin! They loved their accomodations. The accomodations came in various types, we had guests stay in RV's, Motels, and Cabins. How awesome is...

We stayed in the "motel" section. Probably new in the 1960s and patched over since then. Door lock really didn't work, mattresses were 20+ years old, saggy, with springs poking you. Mold in the bathroom. Last straw was the deer tick found on our son. We weren't in the woods yet! If it had been $80/night it would have been...

A course on professional Hotel Mangement is strondly advised for the owners!!! This place has gone so far downhill in the past few years that it is hard to hope that it could ever recover. I had wonderful memories of Silver Rapids Lodge from a family reunion here in 1994. Then it was pristine and friendly, and the location on...

My family scheduled a 2 night stay here. We tried to find another place to stay when we saw what the place was really like. We weren't able to find a place for the first night. We went elsewhere the second night. The place was a dump. They didn't even have sheets on the sofa bed and I had to...
