5/5 Excellent

No better place for our honeymoon!! We truly enjoyed our stay. This was our second time at Wilderness Wind and the Loon Cabin. We are planning to make WW/Loon an annual tradition!

5/5 Excellent

Like being at an family camp
Wilderness Wind reminded me of a camp-experience without all the hoopla. The cabin was simple yet enough to cook good food and escape the bugs (it's June in Ely). The bathhouse was clean and only a few steps away from anywhere on site. The setting was quiet with beautiful sunset views. Jay and the team were friendly and helpful. We plan to return next year, hopefully for a longer visit!

5/5 Excellent

Very peaceful, great location, nice beach, and Good fishing.
Communication with the property manager was excellent. Very nice guy, extremely accommodating and very helpful. The fact that the bathrooms are located closely on the property, and water is supplied in abundance allowed us to stay for a week comfortably and enjoy an experience without all the typical amenities was a perfect experience for me and my 10 year old. Very much enjoyed the peace ans quiet. Easy access to kayaks, life jackets, and other extras was nice. We would come back to this resort and would recommend it. Thanks for your hospitality.

4/5 Good

Nice quiet stay
Beautiful scenery... Relaxing stay. Would have liked a few more kitchen amenities and a comfortable chair it couch to relax indoors. Staff were very responsive and helpful. We will be back.
