The Ely House in Northern Michigan

Family-friendly resort in Pellston
The Ely House is a restored, 100 year old, farmhouse on a quiet 200 acres. It's conveniently located between Mackinaw and Harbor Springs. Even though it's a country setting, you'll still enjoy the fastest fiber optic internet service available.

Cold Creek runs through the middle of the farm, connecting to the Maple River which yields beautiful brown trout. Old Elm trees provide an ideal habitat for our abundant Bald Eagle population which can be spotted year round.

Our Artesian well flows with prestine drinking water.

The wooded trails by the house will keep you pleasantly occupied. Whether it be a morning walk, a bike trip down a country road, wild berry picking, or a slow day fishing on Ely Bridge Rd.

At the end of the day, a big campfire under the stars while listening to the sound of owls makes for lasting memories.

We consider ourselves blessed to be in the the most beautiful land in the Midwest.
Air-conditioned accommodations at this resort offer DVD players and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and cookware/dishes/utensils. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations and hair dryers.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

5/5 Excellent

Great place to get away for remotely working/schooling, and close to skiing
Charming old farmhouse- a fantastic place to (very) remotely work/school from in the winter, with the occasional trip to Boyne Highlands or Nubs for skiing (both about 15 mins away). Property owner was very responsive to any questions, place was clean, and check in/out was a breeze.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect XC Ski House!
Our family truly enjoyed the Ely house. Everything about the house was perfect and James was so attentive to any questions we had. We were so surprised to find amazing XC ski trails right outside the back door. We would come back again in a heartbeat.

5/5 Excellent
