Ely, Minnesota has been written about extensively as a Northern Minnesota gem. Positioned at the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness – and surrounded by lakes of all types – Ely has drawn people from across the United States to become residents here and create an eclectic community of hearty souls.
There are so many lakes in the Ely and Babbit, Minnesota areas that every road leading to or from here constantly bends to get around them. Larger lakes like Burntside, Shagawa, Fall, White Iron, Bear Island, Birch and Snowbank Lake create a water filled corridor that essentially connects the Ely and Babbit regions, and these larger lakes also host the highest lakefront real estate prices. But there are some bargains to be had on smaller lakes from Isabella to the Echo Trail. And if you are looking for larger acreage or hunting land, there is an abundant supply available.
