Let it lure you...

Let Northernair Lodge in Ely, Minnesota take you back to a simpler time. You'll be thrilled by the beauty of Northernair Lodge, tucked into the Superior National Forest. As the only resort on the lake, here you'll find the only boat launch along untouched Mitchell Lake- just for you, your loved one, or your group. Explore the clear waters and the incredible fishing. An abundance of walleye, Northern pike, bass and pan fish keep reeling people back year after year. And even though the private lake may make you feel miles away from civilization, there are several nature and wildlife attractions nearby, such as the International Wolf Center, the North American Bear Center, and the Soudan Underground Mine State Park, all in Ely, Minnesota.
