We stayed here after canoeing and 3 nights camping in the boundary waters. We stayed in Suite B in the Lodge (B & B room) which was spacious with a living room area, private bath and partitioned off bedroom area. We hadn't planned on cooking but it also had a kitchenette (small fridge, stove top, small microwave, coffee maker and... More

A lovely experience. Beautifully maintained historic lodge in a secluded spot. We had a lodge room with shared bath. High quality linens, fabulous breakfasts, very well-trained, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Couldn't have asked for more. We canoed one day and hiked the next. Lake was even warm enough to swim off the dock. I would go back in a minute.

We rented Cabin 8 (Charlie Boy's Cabin) for a week in mid-August. While we were disappointed not to have sunny, warm weather, we realize that Clearwater Lodge cannot be responsible for providing the type of weather we would prefer. :-) Our cabin was comfortable, the kitchen was well supplied with everything we needed, and there were extra touches that made...

This is the first trip advisor review I have ever written. I am doing so because of the great experiences I have had at Clearwater Lodge. I had not been to the BWCA for over 11 years and we organized a group with children last summer. Our old equipment was not up for the trip, but Erik was so helpful... More

We took a week-long vacation in August with the Clearwater Lodge and Outfitters. Our stay included a 5-day, 4-night canoe trip in the beautiful BWCA Wilderness, with nights in the Lodge B&B before and after the trip, and final night in a bunkhouse. This was an excellent experience, and we would definitely recommend Clearwater to anyone. This was our first... More

This is the third time I have been to this lodge, twice in the last two years. The new owners clearly have a passion for this property and continue to improve the already impeccable beauty of the property. I look forward to many years of return visits. It is great that we found that place that we really feel is... More

We stayed here for several nights and enjoyed it very much. The cabins were very nice, clean, and had great views. The staff was extremely helpful and we will definitely stay there again. It is a beautiful setting, quiet and peaceful.

Clearwater Lodge provided us another year of great lodging and service on our trip into the Boundary Waters Canoe Wilderness area. The Bunk House prior to our trip and the Lodge to end the trip were exactly as we hoped for. The Bunkhouse is client and a practical place to get ready for the trip into the wilderness waters. The...

We stayed at the Clearwater bunkhouse the night before our Boundary Waters. We arrived late but were able to find our room with the help of the map that the staff told us they would leave on the front door. The bunkhouse is a simple room that is a perfect staging area for a trip. The shared toilet and shower... More

Erik and his crew at the Historic Clearwater Lodge made our first trip to the Boundary Waters so simple. Erik helped me secure our entry permit well in advance and was always helpful with good suggestions and advice on what to bring and expect. While we visited on one of the busiest weeks of they year the staff helped us... More
