I took my 91 year old father and my mother to Moose Track for 10 days of fishing. Thanks to Joan and her staff, they had a wonderful time and caught lots of small mouth bass. The Moose Track staff went out of their way to provide my parents with a comfortable and relaxing stay. I have already booked for...

My wife and I loved our visit to and with Moose Track Adventures. Their cabins don't deserve to be called "cabins." They are all recently completely remodeled and right on the water. The inside of the cabins is spectacular. You've got to see them in person to believe them. But the best part of Moose Track are the owners--Joan and...

Stayed here on both ends of a trip into the boundary waters. Rustic cabins by lake were bright, inviting with comfortable rooms and well supplied kitchen - a great place to relax. Joan and Jim were excellent hosts and provided great recommendations on where to go canoeing and places to visit in town. Highly recommended as place to do your...

My friend and I enjoyed the Kawishiwi remote cabin from Sept 18 - 23, 2010. We used to do overnight trips into the BWCA, but now he's 80 and I'm 62 and we're no longer able to do the portages. At this cabin, just 200 yards from the BWCA, we were able to enjoy comfortable beds at night and paddle...

Always wanted to do a Boundary Waters canoe/camping trip? Us, too! So my friend and I made it a Girl Power trip and hired Moose Track to help us. We chose Moose Track because they sent a personalized response to our email request for information (instead of one of those auto-emails), and were very willing to work with us via...

I came for a first fishing trip with my 8 year old daughter. The cabins were beautifully done in light contemporary pine. Fully furnished with refrigerator, stove, dinnerware etc. No TV in the room but wi fi available at the lodge. Each cabin sits at the lake edge with it's own dock. Gorgeous views. Jim (owner), took my daughter and...

Joan and Jim did all in their power to make our trip the best. Joan stayed up late to welcome us and make pizza when our flight was delayed. Jim gave us the best of fishing advice and even took us into town to get the right bait. The cabin was much better than I expected for a "remote" cabin...

I Just returned from a fishing (not catching) trip to Minnesota. Joan and Jim at Moose Track Adventures were great. We stayed at the Kawishiwi River Cabin. It's a real nice cabin just a few paddle strokes away from the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. We didn't catch many fish but it wasn't for lack of trying or lack of assistance...

We wanted a quick early fall get-a-way and this was the perfect spot! We love Ely and try and make it there at least once per year. The cabins were roomy, clean and right on the lake which was great since we brought our boat. We also liked having our own fire pit as many cabin places only have a...

We had such an amazing time with family and good friends in Ely at Moose Track Adventures. Jim and Joan made our trip so comfortable and nice. The cabins were immaculate and the service was amazing. We look forward to another summer trip in Ely.
