My girlfriend and I had a great time here early this summer. Ted and Barb were great hosts. The breakfasts were very good too. The stuffed french toast was amazing! We stayed in the Ollie room and it was fantastic. It is a secluded place which is nice for a little getaway. We even saw a family of moose while... More

Barbara and Ted are outstanding hosts. We enjoyed our four nights at Poplar Creek very much. The rooms were spacious with high quality linens and many little 'extras' in each room. We had booked all three rooms for the four days and enjoyed having the place to ourselves. The kitchen facilities were perfect for our lunch and dinner preparations. One... More

We have known of this wilderness gem for years, and finally in retirement were able to get there. Our high expectations were not disappointed. Barbara and Ted were welcoming, generous hosts. Our room was large and comfortable, with a thoughtfully provided night light for an old codger with balance issues. The days begin with a walk in the area, the... More

It was our first time on the Gunflint Trail and we had a wonderful time at the Poplar Creek Guesthouse. Barbara and Ted are the warmest hosts, welcoming and thoughtful; they also helped us a great deal plan our daily trips in an efficient manner in the limited time (2.5 days) we had there. The rooms are spacious, beautifully decorated... More

The Poplar Creek Guesthouse is by far the best B&B I have visited. The Young's are so pleasant and accommodating. The food is exceptional. The suites are spacious and capture the Great atmosphere of the Northwoods. Whether you seek the joys of northern winter (they are located on the Banadad ski trail) or summer fishing or spring and fall canoeing... More

We have been here 3 times in winter and once in the spring-time. Makes no difference it's always so relaxing, and you're treated like family...maybe better! Being with folks that grew up on the Gunflint and yet prepare breakfasts like you're at the Waldorf is beyond normal expectations. Rooms are clean and large. Plus a common area both upstairs and...

My husband and I came up for the Christmas holiday and spent four nights in Barbara's suite. It was perfect for our needs . Ted and Barbara and wonderful hosts and Barbara's stuffed french toast is not to be missed. The area where they are located is spectacular and snow shoeing on the trails that go through the woods was... More

We had a lovely time at the Poplar Creek Guesthouse. The room was very comfortable and breakfast was delicious. Barbara and Ted prepared a super breakfast and provided an excellent environment for us to relax and enjoy ourselves before a trip into the BWCA. We highly recommend the Poplar Creek Guesthouse!

We love Ted and Barbara! They were gracious and conscientious hosts, and could write a book of their experiences and Gunflint history. Breakfasts always included lots of fresh fruit (apples from trees in the yard), and superb main meals. Thanks guys, we'll see you again.
