We stay at the FM Inn. Oops I mean Paddle Inn. Cheap and ok rooms. Nothing fancy just a clean warm room. If your looking at something more up scale try the Grand Ely Lodge.

I would recommend the Grand Ely Lodge especially if you have kids because they have a swimming pool and the rooms are very nice. You can take off on the snowmobile trail right from your door plus you are right on Shagawa Lake. They also have a nice restaraunt right there!

Hope this helps,

Justin

I've stayed at both the Grand Ely Lodge and Paddle Inn. The Lodge is great with everything you need right there, including Ice Fishing if you want to walk/drive(?) out or rent a shack. You'll pay about 40% more for a room there vs anywhere else, but if that doesn't matter, thats where I would go.

The Paddle Inn is clean, comfortable and will work well if you just need a place to crash & shower while spending most of the day elsewhere. For us it has worked well when up visiting the family for the Holidays.

This year we are going to give the Adventure Inn a whirl over Christmas. Priced between the Paddle and the Lodge, (closer to the Paddle) we'll see how it is.

Haven't been home for quite a few Christmas' now. Really looking forward to it. Hopefully the eyes are biting on down on Sandy Point or Stinky Ditch.

Grand Ely Lodge is tops in my book for all of the reasons above.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
