As a frequent visitor of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area I was excited to introduce our young family to the wilderness experience, and the Northwind Lodge was the perfect place to do just that. Joe and his family were fabulous hosts and we will cannot wait to return. We enjoyed the beach area, fishing, and boating. We saw bald eagles,...

This resort is very relaxing and fun! Great family owned resort with a quite lake to enjoy your summer. Fishing is great and not a lot of traffic on the lake. Very close to a lot of hiking trails. The cabins are well maintained and they have cabins of all sizes to fit your family/group needs.

First - here is the website: http://visitnorthwind.com/ Came here with my husband for Labor Day holiday. He's been here before and liked the fishing on Jasper Lake. Joe, the owner, is helpful, friendly and has good sense of humor. Many of his customers are repeat, some for many years. You have to bring your own food / beverages/ personal toiletries...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nice, clean housekeeping cabins nestled in the woods along the southern shore on a gem of a lake called Jasper - that is Northwind Lodge. We are an Ely, MN resort located in a wilderness setting, far enough from civilization to enjoy the tranquility only true, northern Minnesota wilderness can provide. With Jasper Creek winding it's way through the resort, the enchanting white noise is unlike anything one can find in most place around the world. How many places can you find where you can walk to a waterfall in under three minutes from your cabin? Northwind Lodge is an amazing place with many interesting and long-time guests, several who've now stayed with us for the past 30-50 consecutive years! Maybe it is time you began your own northern Minnesota tradition of stay at the Ely, MN resort called Northwind Lodge! ... more   less
