Great Spot Wonderful People!!!!

Such a lovely place to come and visit!!!

My wife and i came here (on the very very slim chance) to see the Northern Lights! When i asked about the lights, they gave me information about the northern lights and links to track the best time to see them.

Whilst we didn't see the Lights, the people were wonderful and very social. Took us for a tour around the area and we shared drinks and stories every night.

We look forward to our paths crossing again!

Convenient, yet secluded, and lovely

Sandy and Elaine were wonderful hosts, leading a 4-loop mile-long walk around their property and giving us guidance for things to do and places to go up and down Highway 61. Enjoyed their company, their apples, and the horses that were our neighbors for the two nights we were there. Very conveniently located to nearby Ely and the North Shore.

Great Stay at Effie's Paradise in Finland

This was another great stop-over for us using Boondockers Welcome. They were quick to respond to our request and when we arrived they helped us get settled. These ladies sure made us feel welcome. It is our first time in the Lake Superior area, and they helped familiarize us with the "North Shore" and some local hikes, good restaurants, and suggested many places along Hwy 61 to visit, etc. Also told us about a local dump station in Finland that saved us having to drive much further away. We were happy to be their first Boondocker guests. You can't go wrong staying at their lovely property.
