Ely Minnesota Hotels Motels-Chalets at River Point Resort


Ely Minnesota Hotels Motels Lodging – Lakeview Charm

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 charming woodsy one-bedroom Chalets can accommodate up to 3 to 4 persons. Each Chalet has a private sundeck and private entrance with lake, river, and forest views and the Chalets are housed in a huge cedar-sided two-story 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. Prior to their canoe trip they may enjoy a warm, comfortable bed, along with many other amenities, when renting one of the lovely Chalets. Canoe groups can also spend the night or several nights in a Chalets after their canoe trip and enjoy the many amenities of River Point Resort.

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.

The 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, and fishing and boating are intriguing for active travelers. 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.

A Chalet lodging choice combined with a Boundary Waters guided day canoe fishing trip adventure makes for some great memories…and tasty fish!
