  • Wonderful home and location

    5/5

    Opal House was a great location for our long weekend in Ely. Great location to walk to a coffee shop latte in the morning or dinner and drinks in the evening. The home was really cute, beds were incredibly comfy, water pressure in the shower was great… all the comforts of home. It was a great stay!

  • Great cozy home for our long book club weekend.

    5/5

    Our book club stayed here 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The home is clean, cute, and well-provisioned. Chad was easy to communicate with; he told us the home was a set for an upcoming movie, and then gave us the title of the book the movie was based on. The home is very close to downtown, where we ate several times - and attended the Taylor Swift movie opening. During our stay we also went to the International Wolf Center and hiked a couple times. Would definitely stay in this home again.

    Spent several days in Ely to get away from the city and do some hiking. The home was very clean and well appointed. Bedrooms are large, especially the second bedroom. Beds were also comfortable. The location is ideal for walking to the restaurants and shops. With the unseasonably warm weather the central air conditioning was greatly appreciated.
