This 'Old House' was remodeled by the owners themselves. Each room is paneled with locally harvested lumber, oiled and varnished to a beautiful luster allowing each room to achieve a rustic eloquence of its own. The spacious bathrooms have white cedar ceilings and large showers. Plush mattresses and deluxe pillows will provide guests with a luxurious night's sleep. There's a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, and a Gathering Room with a fireplace for all guests. All rooms can control heat and air-conditioned individually; and all rooms have Netflix, Directv Now and wireless internet. Guests receive a complimentary fresh baked pastry with an assortment of coffees, teas, and hot chocolates delivered to the kitchen each morning. We accept VISA, Mastercard, and Discover.

I stayed here for MEA weekend 2018 with my two kids (9&10). It is wonderfully clean and seems to be all newly remodeled. We were in the Amber room, which was spacious and well done (and not Amber at all). Roku TV, Wi-Fi, great porch, easy parking, brand new shower, lots of

We liked the ambiance and hospitality of this Inn. The location is great as well except the road noise. The Bakery they offer is nice as well. The common kitchen is a plus as well. The rooms are very spacious

We were a little confused when we arrived because there was no one to greet us. We saw two envelopes on a door but neither had our name. After looking in various windows to try to figure out what was going on, we felt a bit unwelcomed. Then the Wifi signal in our room, named

We are very sorry about the confusion. Our goal is to allow the guests to have as much privacy as possible which is why we have chosen the self service idea. I am very sorry that you did not have a welcome letter out on the door for you at your arrival; we work very hard to ensure that all of our guests feel welcome. We are currently working to fix the wifi situation and have changed the mattress in the Indigo Room due to this review. We hope that while there were some hiccups you still enjoyed your stay with us. Please keep us in mind the next time you are in Ely and come check out the improvements that we have made. Thank you for your review. We are always trying to improve our inn and reviews like these will help us do that. Mindy Riley Hospitality Specialist

First they never sent instructions on how to get into our room when there was no front desk. We had to call to find out. Second, we slept in a very warm room and had to open the outside door to cool it down. The thermostat in the room was not working and there was no sign

Hello, I apologize sincerely that your email was not received. I will ensure that our automatic email system is functioning properly for you. The new thermostat system was in the email, so once again I apologize that the information was not passed on. I wish we had heard right away so we could have provided you with a pleasant stay! The confusion between our staff and the bakery was unforeseen, and I'm sorry that the provided baked goods were unsatisfactory. The baker is back and delivering fresh pastries once again, though we were displeased by that confusion, as well. We hope that you understand, and we would love to be able to host you again to show our improvements. Please give us a call if you're ever in Ely again, and we would be more than happy to accommodate you!

Hi Pete, that is just fine with us! We do have "designated" pet friendly rooms at the Stay Inn Ely, these rooms are the Crimson and Amber room (both have private entry decks.) Otherwise, our West and East Lofts are also considered pet friendly. There will be a $20 pet fee adjusted onto your reservation. Please be considerate of other guests at the Inn, who may not be "animal people." We ask that you please have your pet on a leash, especially if walking through or hanging out in the shared common space. We also ask that you please avoid leaving your pet unattended in the room. You are responsible for any damages, cleaning and liability caused by your pet as well. If you have any questions or need help with reservations, please give us a call at 218-365-6010. Thank you for considering Jasper Company
