Why choose Timber Trail Lodge & Resort?
Ely, Minnesota is blessed with many fine resorts and lodges. Each is unique in many ways offering different experiences and amenities. We recognize that not every resort is ideal for each visitor to Ely, depending on wants and needs. We want all Ely travelers to experience a wonderful vacation, and choose the Minnesota resort that best meets their expectations.
Our closeness to Ely means you will be able to have a northern Minnesota wilderness experience, yet be close enough to town that you can enjoy the many attractions Ely has to offer
White Iron Chain of Lakes - The chain's four interconnected lakes include White Iron Lake, Farm Lake, Garden Lake and South Farm Lake. Farm, White iron and Garden Lakes have no motor restrictions. (any size boat and motor is allowed). South Farm Lake is in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and is a restricted lake to 25hp and below. We are also the closest resort to the N. Kawishiwi River and this paddle only portion of the Boundary Waters. From our resort you have nearly 11,000 acres of water to explore. View our webcam overlooking Farm Lake
Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness - We have direct access to the BWCA by water. Our guests can experience the BWCA right from their doorstep with excellent day and overnight canoe trips. We provide a shuttle service to the BWCA for fishing; self-guided and guided canoe trips.
Our full service canoe trip outfitting company "Boundary Waters Outfitters" can service all of your outfitting needs. While staying at Timber Trail Lodge we invite you to visit our outfitting facility and hear about all the opportunities you have for entering the Boundary Waters, either while you visiting Timber Trail or on a later trip to Ely.
Fishing - Our chain of lakes contains an abundance of Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike and Crappie. Our veteran guide, Rob Nelson, spends over 100 days each summer guiding Timber Trail customers. He is available for advice to our guests by marking maps and answering all your fishing questions. The Boundary Waters offers some of the best fishing you will find in the US. For additional information, please visit our fishing information page.
