The Blue Heron Bed & Breakfast is a lakeside lodge adjoining the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) – our million acre front yard near Ely, Minnesota. At the Blue Heron you can experience all the wilderness of a canoe trip but with a king or queen size bed, private bath, and breakfast in the dining room overlooking the lake.
You can launch from our shore to canoe, fish or just laze about. By boat or by foot you can explore the nooks and crannies of our 10 acres and the BWCA… next door. Numerous trails and logging roads nearby can be used for hiking, biking, skiing, and snowshoeing. In winter we host dog sled trips. Or perhaps you’d rather ‘just be’ in a comfortable chair by the shore, on the porch or in front of the fire.
A Stay Inn Ely offers a unique lodging experience to Ely travelers at 112 West Sheridan Street. The Inn has an old world hostel charm yet still offers guests the privacy of individual bathrooms. Located in downtown Ely, MN, the Inn is within easy walking distance to Ely’s finest restaurants and shops.
New and old friends alike can share their vacation stories within the Gathering Room around a stone fireplace. A modern fully equipped kitchen is available for guests to prepare their own meals. A large wrap around porch provides the guests with an excellent place to pack and unpack Duluth packs, dry gear, reminisce over their BWCA canoe trip, visit with family and friends, or just enjoy the fresh evening air.
Each room is paneled with different locally harvested lumber (white and red pine, black ash, tamarack, and white cedar). Some of the wood has been left rough cut, to add rustic beauty. Other woods have been milled to random widths, either tongue and groove, shiplapped, or board and batten. Sanding and then varnishing the rooms to a beautiful luster allowed each room to achieve a rustic eloquence of its own. The spacious bathrooms have white cedar ceilings and large showers.
All rooms can be individually heat controlled and air-conditioned; and all rooms have cable T.V. and access to complimentary wireless internet.
Please note that the A Stay Inn Ely is a pet friendly, recycling friendly and smoke-free business.

Unlike the average vacationer’s resort, Veterans on the Lake has a unique historic background for why it was founded.
In 1982, Disabled Veterans Recreation, Inc. was organized by a group of northeastern Minnesota citizens passionate about finding adequate recreational resources for veterans. Originally the Disabled Veterans Recreation, Inc., Veterans on the Lake was started for the sole purpose of creating a recreational facility for disabled veterans to enjoy vacations. As a non-profit facility, this recreational location was designed to and currently serves the needs of disabled veterans, able bodied veterans, active duty military, their families, and friends.
