East Wind Cabin on the edge of BWCAW

Ely log cabin

3 bedrooms / 1 bathroom / sleeps 7

“great fishing and hospitality” I started out planning a fishing trip months prior to my arrival at Vosburghs Custom Cabins. I contact Betsy who was an angel in telling me about the area I was visiting, what I was to expect, what I needed to bring, and that she and her crew would take care of the rest. About a month prior to my visit I received a e-mail from the resort just checking in and wanted to see if I had any questions, which is a first on my many fishing experiences to Ely. Upon arrival Betsy greeted me with a cold drink and wanted to know how my trip was and took the time to get to know me and what my needs might be on my trip. Her cabin/office looks over Moose lake and is possibly one of the most beautiful views I have ever seen. I met Willy Vosburgh on the way to my cabin, he helps run the operations as well, and he informed me about my boat that was waiting at the dock, asked if I needed bait, and help get me my permits to enter the park for the next day. My Cabins was absolutely fantastic, the custom wood work really made the cabin all that I was told it would be. The large ready to use kitchen had all the necessities; large fridge, stove, microwave, coffee pot, and all the utensils needed to cook our meals.The cabin had a nice living room area with couch and wood burning stove, large bedrooms, and an attached screened in front deck to sit and look at the scenery. The set up for fishing was very nice, we had a large V hull aluminum boat with a new 25 HP motor which made it easy to start and drive. The main dock had a helpful guy by the name of Greg who helped with all our gas, bait, seats, etc.. which made fishing everyday easy. I hired a guide the first day who's name was Paul, who showed us how to fish these lakes, what lures were working and how to use them, I highly recommend hiring him for your first day, we caught a ton of nice fish. I had a wonderful time on my trip and would recommend this resort to anyone who loves fishing, hiking, boating, or simply great scenery.

Island Retreat-Lake Vermilion

Ely house

4 bedrooms / 1 bathroom / sleeps 10

“What an experience!” We stayed for a week in this spectacular cabin... There were 4 adults and 8 kids! The kids had a great time canoeing/row boating in the bay and exploring the island! We adults just enjoyed the serenity, peace and quiet and smell of fresh air. A true outdoor adventure. The pictures of this cabin just don't do it justice:). It is much bigger than it appears and fit all of us very comfortably. The fun of it really, was living with no electricity, cooking on the campfire or grill every night and having the fireplaces going in the evening while playing games. A great vacation and many memories we will have! Thank you amy

Tanglewood on Moose Lake with direct access to BWCA

Ely log cabin

“Best place to stay in ELY” This resort is truly top notch! From the best cabins (Holiday Inn has nothing on them). To the Owners & Staff. Nothing but the best for their customers! Went up to the main Lodge to use their Wi-fi connection to report the excellent fishing to make all of my friends jealous! The view of the lake is outstanding! Willy & Greg are there for your every need. Boats readied every morning & gassed up and ready to go. Thank you to everyone at Custom Cabin Rentals for the best experience in the Northwoods. You guys rock!

"Shorewood" Cabin on Moose Lake 1/2 mile from BWCA

Ely log cabin

“Custom Cabins on Moose Lake” Our group had 4 cabins this year. total of 24 people. Betsy and Willy did everything possible to make our group vacation a success - and it truly was. Large groups can be difficult to handle, but all supplies, equipment and lodging facilities were exellent! Fishing is terrific here all summer long! Not unusual for our group to catch many walleye and smallies above 5 lbs. Also, supply of "eater" size fish is super.

“Outstanding!!!” We stayed July 2nd through July 4th 3 nights. We couldn't ask for a nicer place and time. Elizabeth & the staff were friendly and prompt. The cabin was clean, quiet, on a very scenic overlooking moose lake in the bwca. The boat that came with the cabin was perfect for our fishing needs (motor was extra). The Fishing was great, No complaints at all and we would recommend a return trip in a minute!!!

About Ely

Located in Saint Louis County, Minnesota, Ely is a small town with big charm.

However, Ely is not only about the outdoors. You'll be able to find unique shops, the best places to eat and, if you're going for a rustic vibe, then you can pitch a tent at one of the campgrounds.

Hilltop Cabin overlooking Moose Lake and BWCAW
Fishing Trip 2011

The service was great, especially Jessie. The cabin had a great view and was nice but the six beds together was a little cozy, especially with those that snored, me included. I would definitely come back the sooner the better. Hopefully I will see you next year. … see more

Cabin 7 is by far our favorite cabin. The front faces the west where you can sit in the livingroom and watch eagles, loon, and the sun go down over the trees. The staff was caring and very helpfull. It was a wonderful retreat. … see more

The accommodations and service were wonderful!

Had a wonderful stay. Clean cabins, beautiful view, tons of space made for a great vacation. Already made our reservations to return next year and will be renting cabin #2. Its screened in porch provides a nice view of the water. The lake and your fishin' boat is just a short stroll down the path. Very, very convenient. Wish it wuz June again!see more
Keller's Kabin on Moose Lake: 1/2 mile from BWCA
Awesome in Minnesota

This is not your typical fishing cabin. The home is very comfortable, well equipped, and conveniently located for lake access. The dedicated dock and equipment shed are real assets. Great view of the lake. Comfortable deck for bbq or just relaxing. The rented boats and dock services were more than adequate. Employees were helpful and friendly. Backyard foggers came in handy in the evenings.see more
