This is a beautiful lake resort. Perfectly quiet with beautiful views from all cabins. We stayed in the Norway for 7 nights and the Point for two. Loved them both for different reasons obviously. The Norway is a cold water cabin with no shower and...More

Noticed there haven't been many reviews over the Summer so I thought it was time to say this is a wonderful place to kick back and veg (or paddle and fish). We spent one week in the White Pine cabin and just loved it. Cabin...More

We stayed in the Spruce Cabin for a total of 12 days, 5 with just two of us and a week with our grandson. We had a very nice time. As has been said already, there is lots to do in the Ely area, and...More

Over the last few years we have been at Fenske 5 times. We stayed in several cabins - all with cold water only and a half bath. We were looking for an rustic cabin experience in a quiet setting and we obviously were not disappointed!...More

Aloha! Sorry to bother you so soon after your vacation but you have the only new review of Fenske Lake Resort. Our family of four (mom, dad, girl 15, boy 13) plan to spend two weeks in the Ely area next summer. It is a long and expensive trip from Maui so we want to get it right. Fenske LR looks just like what we would like for a week. Questions. The lake is small. Is it crowded with boats? clogged with weeds? anyplace to swim? we are novice fisherpeople. Are there fish? any kind will do! We love nature - no wild animals in Hawaii (cats, pigs, goats, rats etc.is about it ) other than whales. Any wildlife to be seen?I was born in Minnesota but have not been back for many years. Any cabin tips? How long to town for supplies? Thank you very much and mahalo plenty! William "Pili" McGrath Wailuku, Maui
