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

The crew and team at Clearwater were very helpful. We were introduced through our UBS Concierge. Eric and Adam handled the "vetting" process of our Concierge, Jack Farmer very well. UPon arrival, Eric, Kelsey and Adam listened to us and gave us some pointers in how to survive and enjoy our time on the BW. My suggestion is to follow... More

My husband and I spent 3 days with our daughter's family in one of the marvelous cabins at Clearwater. There is a reason that this lodge is on the historic register! The history of Petra and Charlie is absolutely fascinating and we were fortunate enough to be able to spend time with Harriet, one of the daughters, and learn first... More

Fabulous Historic Lodge!! My family rented a cabin at Clearwater and took day trips into the BWCA. The cabin was perfect -- impeccably clean, great beds and linens, fully furnished kitchen -- absolutely wonderful. The staff at Clearwater was first rate -- friendly and superb service. The staff catered to our every need for watercraft for our day trips as... More

During our trip in the boundary waters my girlfriend and I stayed our first and last nights in bunkhouse 3 of Clearwater Lodge. For $20/person/night, I was very impressed by the accomodations. Very clean, very close to an immaculate couple of shower houses. Breakfast in the morning was delicious and the servers was very charming. The shop in the lodge... More
