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 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.

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 acoross 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, fishing and 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.

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

 From the sundecks of the four Chalets, guests can catch either the sun rising or setting over the lake, and every now-and-then in the night sky, Mother Nature’s other brilliant light show – the aurora borealis!

Couples looking for a romantic resorts getaway or a honeymoon destination delight in the Chalet lodging, as do families looking for a partial week vacation at the lake.
