Ellis Lake Resort is known for its cute, cozy, authentic log cabin lodging built in 1939. We are a step back in time when life was simple. If you love being in nature then you will love us. We do not allow smoking in any of our units. There are no TVs except for the Chalet, Willow and Redbud Lodge. All of the log cabins have fully-equipped kitchens and bathrooms with showers. We also supply linens and towels. Some of the cabins feature Franklin woodstoves, and each has a private outdoor yard area with a picnic table, chairs, charcoal grill, and campfire pit. Our Logrooms are like your basic motel room…small refrigerator, microwave & coffee maker, bath with shower, no kitchen. We are open year round including the hot tub!
We are located eleven miles Southwest of Traverse City, two miles from Interlochen Arts Academy, eighteen miles from Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, and minutes from the wineries, bike trails and snowmobile trails.
Dogs are only allowed in our Elm, Birch, Doghouse, and Cedar log cabins. Please reference the Dog Policies under our Home tab.
