We booked a lodge to lodge ski and every detail was taken care of. The snow was great and plentiful...snowed five more inches while we were there. The ski trails were beautifully groomed,the snowshoeing amazing and the breakfast beyond delicious. Would definitely recommend. Staying here

Thank you for your review. Skiing lodge to lodge is a nice way to stay while cross country skiing. So glad that you enjoyed breakfast. Wish we could make the moose appear for you. More

It is always tough to head back to the city after spending the weekend with Ted and Barbara, the wonderful hosts of the Poplar Creek Guesthouse! Great accommodations, fantastic food, and the best cross country skiing and snowshoe trails in Minnesota! Don't miss this hidden treasure on the Gunflint Trail. We will be back in the Fall for another hiking... More

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 .

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!
