Entire home/apt

The Atomic Lodge is nestled atop a hill, surrounded by towering pines and boulder walls. This stunning mid century marvel was built in 1960 and has been meticulously renovated to its former glory and beyond. This home boasts flawless landscaping from a spacious front deck and a backyard patio, to a fire pit and a sauna - this place has it all. Sleeping up to 12 guests, the inside has a luxury modern kitchen, a wood burning fireplace, formal dining, movie and game rooms, finished beautifully. This booking is for the entire atomic lodge. The home comprises three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, a bunk room, plus many common areas. As you climb the concrete stairs , passing imposing boulder walls on all sides, you are confronted by a beautiful home that is quintessentially mid-century modern. With straight clean lines and a sea of windows, the atomic lodge welcomes guests to walk into the past to explore a home that would have been the delight of Frank Lloyd Wright. Once inside guests will notice a clear connection between the inside and outside worlds. The countless windows allow in an abundance of natural light, beautifully highlighting all areas of this thoughtfully curated home. The vaulted ceilings are clad in pine shiplap, creating a tall and luxurious feel while maintaining a cozy, homey atmosphere. All sections of the upstairs flow together seamlessly, allowing for an interplay between the formal dining room, kitchen, and the great room. As is typical of mid century homes, our property is designed with an emphasis on lifestyle, family time, and an appreciation of nature. Visible out all the windows are a plentitude of pines, spruce, and sugar maple trees, standing as sentinels with orders to ensure your peace and privacy. Our modern kitchen adjoins the great room in impressive fashion. This open floor plan makes meal prep enjoyable for the whole family or group. As someone plays their favorite record and another stokes the fire, the rest of your group can be collectively prepping for a feast with effortless interaction. The kitchen is stocked with all you'll need for a complete cooking and baking experience. Our cookware and bakeware sets are from Caraway, a company that emphasizes both high-design and non-toxic construction. Made with ceramic coated aluminum, these pots and pans make for easy cooking and cleanup. Our coffee bar is fully stocked with fresh, whole bean coffee, tastefully brewed using our Bonavita coffee maker. And for those wanting single cup and espresso options, we have a Nespresso machine with a wide selection of flavored pods. Last but not least, for the traditionalists out there, we also offer a French press. Pour yourself a cup and enjoy it from our breakfast bar or by the fireside. Keep your eyes peeled while enjoying these spaces, as just outside the windows, a variety of wildlife can be seen. From a wide array of birds such as Ravens and Bald Eagles, to White Tail Deer, Fox, Rabbits, Red Squirrels, Flying Squirrels, and Mink. The two upstairs bathrooms are fully updated and feature custom tile work, high-end finishes, and in-floor heat. There is nothing quite like a warm tile floor in the dead of winter to keep you cozy. Supplied by a tankless hot water heater, you and your group never have to worry about running out of hot water. The two back bedrooms in the upstairs of the lodge consist of extremely comfortable queen mattresses, built-in closets and nightstands, as well as a spacious desk that is perfect for digital nomads to work remotely. Our master bedroom features a floating bed frame topped with a comfortable king size mattress, a custom made headboard and nightstand combo, and a built-in closet. In addition there is a large recessed reading nook full of pillows, perfect for a book break or an afternoon nap. Climbing the Cotterman rolling library ladder will allow access to two upper nooks that await your exploration! Our great room is the highlight of the home. The towering brick fireplace and marble hearth make for a grand setting for your fireside chats. Stocked with logs and kindling, you'll have everything you need to enjoy this space is style and comfort. Select a record to play on the turntable, or pick up the house guitar mounted on the wall and fill the space with the music of your choice. The bookcases are filled with National Geographic magazines from the 1950's & 60's, a wide selection of books of all genres, alongside puzzles and boardgames for late nights and rainy days. DOWNSTAIRS The lower level of the Atomic lodge features a 6 person bunk room with the most comfortable couch you've ever sat on (LoveSac Sactional), along with a smart TV with all the streaming apps you could want, topped off with cinema quality surround sound! Each bunk features a memory foam, Twin XL mattress that is sure to impress.

There is a dedicated workspace, ready for computer or writing use that accommodates four people. Perfect for remote work or just surfing the web on our fiber optic WiFi. A beautifully crafted mudroom at the entrance is perfect for storing all your gear and supplies. Think Swiss Chalet vibes. The basement bathroom features all custom tile work, high-end finishes and a modern bathtub/shower combo. Last but not least, we have a game room that has a poker table and a dart board for your use. We also have a massive wall sized map of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness hanging on the wall for all your trip planning needs. You'll also find additional boardgames and card games for your enjoyment! OUTSIDE You and your group will also have access to the front deck with outdoor furniture. This space is perfect for morning coffee or your morning meditation or yoga practice. It is an enormous deck that is both spacious and private. An amazing place to sit and listen to the wide variety of birds that live in the woods surrounding our property! In the back yard you will have access to another outdoor patio area consisting of a poured concrete picnic table, as well as an outdoor kitchen and BBQ area. We will have a propane grill available for you to use as well as outdoor plates and silverware. This entire area is canopied in the summer by two mighty maple trees, providing beautifully filtered sunlight and a refuge from the heat. You will also have access to the outdoor fire pit and all the firewood you could want, at no cost. The backyard is surrounded by towering pine trees and massive maples, offering a secluded escape that will enrapture you. Check the woodshed for roasting sticks, and grab the supplies from the kitchen pantry for roasting Smores! And last, but certainly not least...Ely is famous for it's incredible viewing opportunities to see The Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). On nights when conditions are right, they are VERY CLEARLY VISIBLE from our front deck, and our backyard while standing around the fire. Check out the images in the photo gallery! Guests will have full, unrestricted access to all rooms and areas of the lodge and the property. Access the home with our user-friendly smart lock from Lockly. Prior to arrival guests will be sent an access code that will be valid for the duration of their stay. The one-car garage will also be available for guests to use. In the garage we have an EV charger that is free to use - no need to find a local charging station when you can do it from the warmth of your rental! In addition to the garage space, there is ample parking in our large driveway. Room enough to park up to six vehicles. Guests will also have unrestricted access to our backyard sauna. Custom built in the Scandinavian style, our electric stove (Huum) offers a deep, intense heat, and accommodates 6-8 people comfortably. If your group plans to sauna upon arrival, talk to your hosts about scheduled pre-heating and they will have the room hot and ready for you! Your hosts and their dedicated support team will be reachable with any questions that may arise during your stay. We make it our priority to rapidly respond to any messages or calls received from our guests and to help resolve any issues in a timely manner. Boundary street is perhaps the quietest street in town. We have amazing neighbors that we love very much. Please respect them by honoring our quiet hour policies. You are welcome to be outside by the fire as late as you like, but we just ask that you keep the volume down as noise carries far on this street. Ely is famous for many things, most notable for being the Canoe capital of the world! There are more outfitters (outdoor adventure supply companies) in Ely than any other town in the world. It is also the gateway to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, one of the most pristine wilderness areas in the country, if not the entire globe.
