Loon and baby on the water.

"We had an amazing time at this great spot! The location is beautiful - right on the water and with our own dock. Although there is a house next door, the cabin seemed so private and remote, with trees in between. There is a great deck where we sat and enjoyed the lake views. Willy delivered a canoe, paddles and life jackets right to our dock for us to use throughout our stay.

The cabin itself it great as well; it has everything we needed for a 3 night stay! We made dinner each night, either with the oven or on the charcoal grill outside. Everything we needed to cook was available. Beds were very comfortable, and the entire cabin was spotlessly clean.

The area is a great one for bird watchers - we saw many birds including Loons, Bald Eagles, a few types of Woodpeckers and several Warblers as well! Not to mention a Mink, and Otters in the lake!

Overall, I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed my stay. I would love to return someday. Thank you Willy, for a great vacation!"

"This resort is five star. The owners are friendly and very accommodating. Each cabin is unique and well constructed. Moose Lake is absolutely beautiful and the cabins all have great views of this lake situated right on the Boundary Water Canoe Area. What a great way to vacation! Ely is a short drive away and offers so much for the whole family."

"I booked two cabins for a group of eight college buddies. We really had a great time thanks to Willy and his advice. We spent a full day on the water and other days just enjoying the local scenery.

The location was remote in the best possible way and the cabins were comfortable and well-maintained. I’d highly recommend to others."

"Just got back from an incredible stay at Vosburgh's! Willy and Betsy were extremely nice and helpful! The boats were clean and in perfect condition with excellent motors! The cabin was fantastic with the most incredible views imaginable! Willy provided us with plenty of wood for chilly mornings and evenings and helped us in every way possible! I would highly recommend this place to everyone! The hospitality, the amazing hand-made furniture, awesome cabins and stunning views made this a vacation filled with memories I'll always cherish! Would love to go back every year!"

"Amazing place to visit and stay! Vosburgh's is an awesome location and there is plenty to do. Willy took great care of us and all our requests for boating, canoe activity, and more. Plenty of extra boats, bait, help with permits, canoes, tips, and flexibility with all. Thanks for a memorable stay!"

"The location is perfect - close enough to Ely, if you want to take advantage of the amenities there, and right on the beautiful Moose Lake. Cabin 3 worked well for our family of 5. It was very quiet and peaceful, even with other guests next door. It was very close to the docks, which was great for swimming and canoeing. Willy, the owner, was awesome! He was very responsive and helpful, he knows a LOT about the area."

"Our stay at cabin 8 was spectacular. The view out the large screened in porch is amazing. We watched the sunrise each morning over Moose lake, as we sipped our coffee. We had a few special requests since our group was large and they took care to make sure everything we perfect. Betsy and Willy make you feel like you are right at home. The boats were clean and worked as you would expect. the experience exceeded our expectations. Great fishing( we caught our limits of giant bluegills one day), beautiful scenery and top-notch accommodations that are great to come back to after running around the lakes all day. As the one review said, "One week is never enough!
Thanks again Willy, we will be back next year!"

"This was my first time to Moose lake after many years of going to other places to fish in the Ely area. Willie's boats and the service he provides are excellent. I'm booking a trip to come back and I am looking forward to introducing my family and friends to this wonderful place."

"Amazing trip! The setting could not be more beautiful, the cabins were relaxing and all staff was friendly and eager to help show up a great time and offer suggestions on activities. Come visit, you will not be disappointed!"

"A three bedroom cabin, with hot ready shower, and breath taking views; YES YES YES. Spent a week at Vosburgh's cabins with my family and we had such a wonderful time on the lake and exploring all the surrounding areas. The sunsets and views of the lake are incredible, and my daughter was able to catch her first fish courtesy of their boat service! Full kitchen allowed us to cook our own meals but also Ely is a quick 20 minute drive for some great dinners out too. We definitely will continue to come here to make amazing family memories and can not recommend this place and its wonderfully welcoming and helpful staff."

"A great place to stay. Betsy and Willie are very accommodating. The cabins are nice and clean. John and I have been coming up there for 42 years and staying at Vosburgh's."

It's hard to believe you can be fishing in the wilderness but only a short boat ride away from all of the comforts of home, and Betsy and Willy make you feel like you are home. Great fishing, beautiful scenery and top-notch accommodations that are great to come back to after a long day on the lakes. One week is never enough!
