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. They are like old friends from the moment you meet them and their accommodations are superb.... More

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

This B & B offers luxurious comfort in spacious, immaculate rooms and a three course gourmet breakfast. It also offers a private deck and a kitchen facility. It is just off the Gunflint Trail in a very private, treed setting with walking trails and two docks on Little Ollie Lake which is a good small mouth bass lake. Yet another... More

I picked the Poplar Creek B&B off the internet because it sounded inviting and hospitable. From the first moment we arrived, Barb Young took care of us. She is very friendly and checked us in quickly and gave us a tour of the property. I was traveling with my wife and 13 year old son. We stayed in Dorothy's Room... More

Our visit to Poplar Creek was short but sweet. We stayed just one night in Ollie's Room. The room was spacious with a large bathroom. Small touches like fresh flowers and granola bars made this place feel especially welcoming. We didn't have a chance to use the giant tub, but I can imagine how wonderful it would be after a... More
