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.
