My husband and I traveled here for a week long visit. We stayed in one of adorable guest cabins with our two little dogs. We had a wonderful time at the Clearwater Lodge. We went fishing, hiking, portaging, and sight seeing. We loved the staff, food, and casual, comfortable environment. We will be back next fall for our new annual... More

This was truly a premium experience. My family had an amazing time at Clearwater Lodge. The staff was extremely helpful in assisting us with our outfitting needs and giving us a few tips to enhance our boundary waters adventure. The location and the accessibility to the BWCA is the best in the area. We look forward to returning to Clearwater... More

My husband and I traveled here during the week in the fall. We stayed at the B&B/hotel portion. We had the whole upstairs to ourselves, so I can't complain much. It was very quiet and we slept well. However, if you go during a busy time of year I can imagine it gets very loud up stairs. The walls are... More

My family and I had a wonderful time exploring the northwoods with the lodge as our basecamp. I would describe the location as picturesque and serene. The cabins range from rustic to modern depending on your preferences, all including kitchenettes and a good assortment of amenities. I loved waking up in such a peaceful location. In the morning the lake... More

Returned to Clearwater after a three year hiatus in Oct 2014 to do a solo week canoe loop out of Clearwater -> John/McFarland -> back to Clearwater (~30+ miles) and Eric was very helpful for the outfitting. When I returned I stayed a night in the historic lodge and it was as perfect as ever. The pancakes and sausage were... More

We had the pleasure of staying in Charlie Boy's Cabin. It was clean and well appointed. The setting couldn't be more pleasant or serene. The staff at the Lodge is friendly and very helpful. This is a great place to stay. We will be back.

My husband and I used Clearwater Lodge as our outfitter for a few days of camping on the surrounding lakes. We then returned to Clearwater Lodge to stay in Cabin 8, which is also known as Charlie Boy. It was a quant cabin, a bit farther from the lodge which is what we were looking for - but a quick...

A week at Clearwater Lodge, or at one of several cabins surrounding the lodge, is a step back in time to an era of hand hewn logs, clear and quiet lakes, and the stillness of nature--with many conveniences of 2014. If you enjoy canoeing, hiking, wilderness and family dining, you'll love Clearwater Lodge. You'll find yourself getting reacquainted with friends... More

Have such an appreciation for the history behind this lodge and the family friendly atmosphere. Staff was great and made sure all our needs were taken care especially when it came to our trip into the Boundary Waters. Highly recommend!

The cabin had everything, I was looking for. I wanted to get away, but still have modern amenities. The cabin was rustic and had a lovely dock with built in seats to enjoy the beautiful lake or sit out and watch the stars all night! The kitchen was nice and had everything we needed, the bathrooms were equipped with hot... More
