Experience the best Ely has to offer while staying in your own single family home. This 750 sq ft ‘smart’ home is located one block from downtown Ely's shopping and dining establishments, within walking distance of walking trails & swimming beaches, close to the new (still in progress) paved bike trail between Ely and Tower, and just a few miles from the nearest BWCAW entry point. The home is furnished with fine hotel-quality linens, many amenities including central air, and ‘smart’ technology.

The space
This adorable, cozy home is conveniently located just one block from downtown Ely. The main floor has one spacious bathroom, mud/laundry room, eat-in kitchen, and a comfortable living room with a sectional couch that includes queen sized sofa sleeper fitted with luxurious, hotel quality linens. Includes smart tv with streaming capability, wireless internet, central air conditioning, hardwood floors on main floor, washer/dryer, large deck with patio furniture and electric Weber grill, fenced-in yard, and 2 off-street parking spaces. Second floor has two small bedrooms- 1 with a full-sized bed equipped with a Sealy luxury mattress and 2 includes a set of twin bunk beds. Please note the staircase to bedrooms is very steep and narrow.
This ‘smart’ home is equipped with an outdoor Nest security camera, Nest thermostat, Google Protect WiFi smoke/fire/Carbon Monoxide detectors, Sonos speakers, and an August smart lock deadbolt to allow for easy, secure, and keyless entry for those with smart phones who would like to use it.
