Chalets: Unique high comfort lodging-spend a night or more…the choice is yours!
River Point Resort® rounds out its array of lodging options with unique Ely Minnesota hotels motels lodging. The four charmingly woodsy one-bedroom Chalets can accommodate up to 3 to 4 persons, each with a private sundeck and private entrance with lake, river, and forest views and are housed in a huge cedar-sided lakeside building.
Perfect To Enhance A BWCA Canoe Trip
Active travelers who desire more of an “Eddie Bauer lifestyle” can be outfitted by River Point Outfitting Co. and venture off on a rustic, all-natural Boundary Waters canoe trip for an overnight canoe trip, and then return to a warm, comfortable bed along with many other amenities of the Chalets. Canoe groups can also paddle directly out of the BWCA wilderness to River Point’s marina and then spend the night or several nights in a Chalets after their canoe trip. Or, select the Chalet Ely Minnesota hotels motels option for a night or several nights prior to the canoe trip adventure; the choice is yours…it’s your Minnesota vacation.
Named one of the “50 Places of a Lifetime” by National Geographic Traveler, the Boundary Waters is a remote wilderness area stretching some 1.1 million acres across the border of northern Minnesota and Canada. It’s an amazing wilderness waterway connected by stretches of forested land.
Chalets are also an outstanding choice for those who desire something more than the bed, bath and parking lot of the typical “motel” in downtown Ely. Hiking, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, fishingand boating are intriguing for active travelers. And for the “active observer” type of traveler… listening to the call of the loon, watching an eagle soar, and relaxing by a peaceful evening bonfire are thoughtful substitutes for phones, video games, and television found in a typical motel setting.
Looking for a partial week or full week vacation at the lake with the kids? Look no further than the spacious one bedroom Chalets that can accommodate up to 3-5 in your family. Modest rates makes these lovely upscale Chalets easy on the family budget, yet the full resort experience is there for everyone to enjoy.
Kids can frolic on the two floating island rafts, complete with slide for great water fun, as well as have fun on the complimentary sit-on-top kayaks and kid friendly playaks. Adults love the complimentary SUP’s, and the whole family can get out in a complimentary paddle-boat without getting wet….unless you want to!
A Pontoon Boat can be the perfect choice to explore the wonderful wilderness waters of Birch Lake for the family. Many spots to pull up along the shoreline make it perfect for a family hot dog roast or a quick swim. Or, do some fishing from the comfort of the pontoon boat while the kids play or eat on board. It works!
