Avoiding glass bottles/ware is strongly advised.  Many things that are not typically available in a box or a plastic bottle are available in Ely given it is the doorway to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area where glass is prohibited, e.g. wine in a box, beer in a plastic bottle or can.


**For Wintergreen visits in the summer/fall, we highly encourage guests to pack “like a backpacking trip.”  It is a half mile hike in on a backwoods “portage trail.”   While we do have a stove top, a cooler and camp grill, keeping foods that need to be cool/cold is challenging.  Not to mention, bears have a keen sense of smell.
