What is now known as Burntside Lodge began as a hunting camp in the early 1900's during which time part of the main lodge was built. In 1910 the property was operated as a Sportsmen Club by local businessmen. The Burntside Outing Company began business in 1911 and was comprised of pioneering Ely merchants Thomas E. Miller (Indian agent and owner of a mercantile, P T Brownell (owner of the meat market), Peter Schaeffer (owner of the local newspaper), James White (banker) and others. They recognized the beauty and uniqueness of the land and had the vision to develop the lodge and situated it perfectly with spectacular sunsets and lake views.



Advertisements from September, 1911 indicate the Lodge was the “Headquarters for the Hunting Season”. The owners soon recognized the need for a new hotel on the lake. Plans to develop were set in place at a board meeting in 1913 and on April, 1914 the project began. The builders were Meitunen and Peterson and their crew. All of the logs and support beams in the lodge building grew on the site of the construction. On May 4th the front page of the Ely Miner announced the re-opening of Burntside Lodge by the Ely-Burntside Outing Company. By August 7, the Lodge had hosted its first convention, that of the Range Editorial Association, and all concerned were "loud in their praises of the Burntside Country and the many facilities for outings to be had there.”


Have fun fishing for smallmouth bass or try to tempt one of the lake's legendary lake trout to take your bait. Guides can also be arranged at local outfitters for explorations of other lakes.
