Hugging the shoreline of beautiful Birch Lake, just 4 hours from Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN, 1 hour inland from the North Shore of Lake Superior and the city of Two Harbors, and 10 minutes from the quaint town of Ely, the Naturally Superior™ setting of River Point Resort® & Outfitting Co., one of the finest Minnesota resorts, offers what no other “Up North” destination can. Located on a magnificent mile long wilderness peninsula, bordered by the South Kawishiwi River and Birch Lake, with direct paddle access to the amazing million acre Boundary Waters Canoe Area, this amazing facility has a magic all its own. Sixteen accommodations are sprinkled along the shoreline offering seclusion and panoramic lakefront views. High comfort housekeeping lodging choices have screen porches, wood-burning fireplaces, double whirlpools, and sundecks and the Vacation Home Cabins, Cabins, Villas, and Chalets range in size from one-three bedrooms.
