Barbara and Ted are wonderful hosts! We spent two nights in the Dorothy room and were very pleased. The property is beautiful and secluded and the access to hiking and canoeing was a plus. We spent one morning canoeing in the nearby lake and saw a moose with her two babies! Barbara makes a terrific breakfast! Next time we will... More

We spent 4 nights at the Poplar Creek Guesthouse, combining the 2-night romance package (for our 15th anniversary) with the 2-night nature package (guided birding) and loved every minute of it. The food was excellent, the service great, and Barbara and Ted were great hosts!! They are full of information and history about the area, very helpful, and accommodating. We... More

My husband and I spent three nights here in July 2014. We stayed in Dorothy's room and could not have been more pleased. The room was spacious, comfortable and immaculate. It is upstairs and their is a lovely sitting area right outside the room that also has a small kitchenette if you would like to prepare meals. Barbara went out... More

Thank you for your kind words about your stay. Dorothy's room is a nice and comfortable room and we are pleased you liked it. Right now Spring is trying to figure out when to stay put. We have had warm weather and then it cools. The lakes are open for canoeing and the trails are ready to be hiked. Thank... More

My husband and I stayed the weekend and had the greatest experience with Barbara and Ted. They took care of everything and were so hospitable. Both breakfast and our room were excellent, and the gorgeous property gave us tons to explore. We can't wait to return!

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

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.
