“This summer will mark our 9th summer at River Point – our kids have grown up looking forward to coming back to the same cabin year after year, rekindling memories of summers past and creating new ones. It is like our home away from home for one week each summer.
We love the Ely area and set out on a search for a resort that was quiet, family friendly, and embodied the Ely wilderness feel. After visiting many resorts, we found exactly what we were looking for at River Point Resort.
We began coming to River Point when our children were two and four years old. We were impressed with the beautiful grounds, the lake side view of each and every cabin, and most importantly children of all ages are welcomed here. There are organized daily activities led by college students with a passion for the outdoors. Favorite memories for our children include making dream catchers & pine cone bird feeders, catching butterflies, howling to wolves, looking for animal tracks, and playing games at the beach.
Steve, Jane and James have created an atmosphere where you can get away from it all. No phones, no TV, no distractions to having family time together in the great outdoors with cozy accommodations. They are gracious hosts, giving you your privacy, yet always available to help should you need anything.
The lake is quiet with little boat traffic, which makes it perfect for quiet paddles in the canoe. We all love the hiking, boating and fishing, and days just hanging out at the beach relaxing, swimming and playing tether ball. The star gazing is fabulous – one year we saw the northern lights right from our boat dock. Looking forward to another summer vacation at River Point!”
