We stayed at Poplar Creek as part of a trip along the Banadad trail last March, including one night at the Croft yurt. The B&B is very nice, and breakfast was delicious. We'd recommend it, and return happily. However, the Croft yurt needed a good cleaning, and was furnished with shabby used furniture. Since it's the only place to stay along the Banadad, we really didn't have any alternatives. But we won't use it again. We also weren't expecting an additional fee for a unnecessary but mandatory gear shuttle out to the yurt. We typically pack in our own food, bedding, etc and are perfectly capable of starting a fire and melting snow for water. Boundary Country Trekking maintained that they would bring in water and start the woodstove, adding another fee to an already overpriced stay. The yurt won't see us again.
