Women’s Wilderness Discovery offers a charming, well-appointed two-story Guest House for your overnight stay in Ely the evening before departure into the Boundary Waters. In addition to being available to our booked campers, this lovely year-round accommodation can also be rented by anyone visiting the Ely area and in need of a cozy lodging, in town, at a great price.

Four single beds and two sets of bunk beds provide room for up to eight people (women’s group, family group, or mixed couples’ groups). Beds are complete with linens, pillow, blanket, and quilt. Towels are provided in bathroom and kitchenette.

Upstairs you’ll find two open rooms, separated by the staircase, each with a bunk and a single bed. On the main floor you’ll find two single beds, one bathroom with shower, and a kitchenette with small refrigerator, microwave, toaster, hot pot, induction hotplate for cooking, and double stainless sink. Dishware, cookware, and utensils provided.

Cost is $45 per night/per person. A group rate is negotiable if you plan to book the Guest House for your family or group stay in Ely, MN. Advance reservations are required. Check-in begins at 3:00 pm. Our Guest House is smoke-free and we do not allow pets. If you are outfitting with WWD, we appreciate payment in advance when you send your trip deposit or final payment. Individuals or groups, independent of our outfitted trips, please contact us to book your stay. Women’s Wilderness Discovery is within walking distance of numerous restaurants, coffee shops, liquor stores, retail shops, and laundromats. We also provide safe “off-street” parking to accommodate up to seven vehicles while you’re in the BWCAW, or just enjoying local hiking trails, shops, museums, eateries, and various festivals in the area.

Please let us know ahead of your trip if you’d like to rent your space in the Guest House.
