Policies for our Ely, MN Resort
Resort Deposits, Payments and Fees
Deposits: Because of our small size, cancellations have a significant effect. To secure your accommodations, a deposit of 50% of cabin rate or $600 for a weekly booking by check or credit card for the accommodations is required to guarantee a reservation. We accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. The deposit will be applied towards your balance, which will be due at check-in. A written confirmation will be sent by email or postal mail. Deposits will be refunded only if the cabin is cancelled 90 days prior to reservation and or the accommodation is rented to another party at full rental price. All deposit refunds 90 days or less will be charged a $25.00 service fee. There are no refunds for early departures. Sorry, No Pets!
Guests are responsible for themselves and their children. A fee for any damage to Garden Lake Resort property including smoking damage will be charged to your account. Sorry, No Pets
Rates & Fees
Rates quoted in all our brochures are subject to Minnesota and local taxes. Accommodation rates are subject to 6.5% sales tax, 3% lodging tax. All rates are subject to change without notice.
Check-In/Check-Out Varies by Season
We will do our best to have your rental unit ready early; however, our standard check-in time is 2:00 p.m. for our cabins. We ask that guests check-out of their cabins by 9:00 a.m. on their day of departure. Guest accounts should be settled by 7:30 p m. the night before check-out. Extended check-in and check-out times are offered during our spring, fall, quiet and winter seasons whenever possible.
We strive to provide our guests with a clean and odor free cabin. As of October 1, 2007, all cabins will be non smoking at Garden Lake Resort as stated in County Ordinance #20 and Minnesota Statute #144.411-144.417. Guests who ignore this policy will be charged with a petty misdemeanor for the maximum fee allowed under Minnesota Statute 327.742 and an additional fee of $100 for additional cleaning services required.
Boats, Canoes & Motor
Each cabin comes with a row boat and/or an aluminum canoe. One boat per cabin is free; motor rentals are extra.
