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.

Thank you so much for staying with us in June and this August after your family's canoe trip. It was wonderful seeing all of you. I think that the stuffed french toast is a guest favorite, as is the baked egg casserole. Your kind words written after your June visit were inspiring to our small business. Ted and I hope... More

My wife and I stayed at the Poplar Creek B&B, in the Dorothy room, for only one night prior to our venture into the BWCA for a couple nights. Being at the mid-point of the Gunflint Trail, near the entry point on Poplar Lake, it is the perfect location to begin a BWCA adventure. It would be a great place... More

Thank you for your kind words about your visit. We think the B&B is a great place to leave for a canoe camping trip also. And the full breakfast is a nice way to start a trip. We have had some cool nights, but the days are getting warmer and sunnier. Right now the last week of August and during... More

Barb and Ted Young can set you up for a hut to hut, or lodge to lodge or yurt to yurt or any combo there of, so you can ski from place to place and they'll make sure your luggage is waiting for you.

Thank you so much for your comments. We are pleased that you liked our Lodge to Lodge ski program on the Gunflint Trail. And of course that you enjoyed your stay at our Bed and Breakfast. We really enjoyed meeting you both. We even had more snow this week. Thank you again. More

The B&B and surrounding area are so beautiful in the winter - snow covered pines all around. A definite must in the winter. We stayed in Dorothy's room on the 2nd floor - very spacious and cozy at the same time. My review however is more about how kind the owners are. My husband and I were staying there when... More
