Top 5 Reasons Northern MN is Perfect for a Winter Family Reunion 2019

Trying to get the family together this winter? We’ve got a few good reasons to put Ely, Minnesota on your radar!

  1. It’s gorgeous. The pine trees against the white snow is the perfect back drop to see the sun set – and rise.
  2. There’s room for everyone. With plenty of rooms and beds, there’s a configuration that’s perfect for you.
  3. It’s fun. Snowmobile, ski, build a snowman and have hot cocoa back at the cabin.
  4. There are stars everywhere. You won’t believe the night sky in the Northwoods in winter.
  5. It’s quiet. Read a book, have a game night or a family dance off. No one here to disturb or be disturbing!
