About Tofte Lake Center

TLC is a destination for artists who crave dedicated time to work on their projects, for creative individuals who seek individual growth through guided workshops or retreats, for organizations that want to make time to re/focus on their goals or mission, for leaders to gather to exchange ideas with colleagues in their field. 

TLC provides residencies for artists who crave dedicated time to work on their projects, for creatives who seek individual growth through guided workshops or retreats, for organizations that want to make time to re/focus on their goals or mission, for leaders to gather to exchange ideas with colleagues in their field.

We aim to provide artists with access to nature and a productive workspace, the ability to unplug from the pressures of daily life and an inclusive community of fellow artists.

Lovingly referred to as Norm's Fish Camp (in honor of the resort's previous owner), TLC also offers boating, swimming, fishing, hiking and biking along with a sauna, library, meeting space, public performance space, artist studios and comfortable, fully-equipped cabins for our residents.

TLC is situated on a pristine lake near Ely, MN, adjacent to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW), on the traditional native land of the Ojibway people who have stewarded this land throughout generations.LLP
