Recently, a good friend of mine and I took a trip to the BWCA. Our entrance point was Clearwater Lake, so we decided to stay the night before our trip at Clearwater Lodge...and we are SO glad we did.
Not only were the owners incredibly friendly, and the accommodations charming and comfortable, but the breakfast the morning our trip began was the perfect way to get us going...absolutely delicious.
We both HIGHLY recommend this historical place to anyone who is planning a trip to the BWCA. You will not be disappointed.
