The Inn

Welcome! Mark and Sue Edgington, along with their sons Andre and Sasha and their friendly staff invite you to the Adventure Inn. We strive to provide special touches that will make for a memorable stay in Ely, MN.

The Adventure Inn now has two buildings to cater to your needs! Choose from our log building’s north woods decor with uniquely themed rooms, or our new solar building with Scandinavian decor to relax and calm you. We also have a Jacuzzi-for-2 for added pampering. We have all sizes of beds and rooms to suit every size family or group, from single Queen Rooms to Four-King Suites and Two-Bedroom Kitchen Suites. We cater to any specific needs, including physically challenged or chemically sensitive guests.

We use only earth friendly cleaners in our rooms and on our 100% organic cotton sheets and towels. Enjoy our soft down and raw silk duvets and fluffy down or synthetic down pillows! We provide natural, herb-tinctured soaps for hair and body. We promote recycling in the rooms to remind guests that our planet belongs to all living creatures. Check our our current Green Efforts here. Creature comforts include fresh brewed coffee, locally roasted and blended by Ely’s own Gene Hicks, plus an eclectic assortment of teas and pastries, including the famous Blue Heron scones.

Please don’t hesitate to call (218) 365-3140 or email us with any questions and visit our blog about the Inn & Ely!

Stories from the Inn...

We have many families come stay with us who are having family reunions. One particular family had older siblings coming from all parts of the US. One sister was from LA and had tried to pack her make up case in the canoe. This was her first trip into the BWCA and the rest of her siblings had printed a special tee shirt for her to declare her “newbie” status. She returned the next year, seasoned, because she had so much fun!
