We came here for the last night of the 2013 season and found a lovely setting, a warm welcome, a comfortable bed and an excellent breakfast. The lodge is charming and the fireplace so inviting that only the wonderful scenery can drag you away.

We had a great family vacation at clearwater lodge. We explored the lakes, hiking trails, and Grand Marias. The staff at Clearwater was very helpful and accommodating. We will be coming back next summer!

When planning a trip for my husband, sister-in-law and I it was important to find the perfect outfitter. The Clearwater team was perfect! I choose them based on many reviews and was thrilled with everything they did. At every step Adam, Kasey, Erik and crew accomodated us to make our trip everything we wanted it to be. We had a...

We stayed at Clearwater Lodge in the Bed and Breakfast for two nights and enjoyed every minute. We love the area, but the camping out days have passed. This was a great way to get every bit of the glory of this area and enjoy the comforts of a lodge. The beds were comfortable and cozy, the breakfasts were delicious,... More

We used Clearwater for partial outfitting and put-in transport for a week long trip in the BWCAW this summer. The gear we got was top notch and all the folks we worked with were great. Lovely, historic lodge to boot and a pretty well stocked store for last minute needs. Would highly recommend and we'll almost certainly be back! I... More

I'm no longer enjoy sleeping on the ground or living without my creature comforts but I still love to taking day's long hikes or paddles. Clearwater Lodge is a perfect place to take in the beauty of the BWCA and to stay in a lovingly preserved lodge with great amenities and friendly staff.

I've been to the Clearwater Lake Lodge twice. I love the lodge, and I love the lake. Adam, Kasey, Erik, and Gloria will take good care of you, whether you're renting a cabin or gearing-up to head into the Boundary Waters. They will assist you whether you're an experienced traveler of the Boundary Waters, or brand new to the experience... More

My wife and I visited this lodge this past summer and had a great visit. We stayed for about a week and were in the main lodge upstairs in a suite. The accommodations are rustic but beautiful and the owners and staff are very friendly. The breakfast that came with staying in the main lodge was excellent and the lodge... More

Three of us rented a canoe from Clearwater Lodge for a 5 day trip. We stayed in a bunkhouse the night before we started the adventure. We woke up in the morning and ate a great breakfast before we started paddling. The last day we also stayed in the bunkhouse before the long drive home the next day. We were... More
