Secluded, eco-friendly, silent sport lodging located along the Gunflint Trail and Boundary Waters! You are invited to join us at the Poplar Creek Guesthouse Bed and Breakfast or at our lake cabin-- the Little Ollie Lake Or if you looking for a very remote getaway, check out our Wilderness Yurts.

We are located on the edge of the BWCA along the Gunflint Trail Scenic Byway on Poplar Lake-- just a short thirty-mile drive from the Lake Superior Coastal town of Grand Marais. There is always plenty to do-- hiking, mountain biking and ski trails start at our B&B and Cabin's front doors. There is canoeing, swimming and great fishing in our lake and adjoining BWCA lakes. Moose viewing is an ever poplar activity along the Gunflint Trail and the area is renowned for birding. New this year, we are offering Guided and Self-Guided Birding Tours and Birding Packages with Lodging.

The Poplar Creek Guesthouse B & B sits on a glacial esker overlooking Little Ollie Lake, an small bay of Poplar Lake and a beautiful year-round flowing creek. Furnishings and decor have been inspired by mission style. The Guesthouse offers two bed and breakfast guestrooms and a housekeeping suite. Features include fireplaces, private baths, decks and a whirlpool guestroom. Wireless internet is now available.

The Little Ollie Lake Cabin is located on the shores of Little Ollie Lake. The Lake is great for canoeing, fishing and swimming and is the source of Poplar Creek. Skiing, snowshoeing, hiking and mountain biking trails begin at the front door of both cabins.

Looking for a solitary, out-of-the-way vacation sanctuary, on the edge of the Boundary Waters without another soul around? Check out our Yurts! The Tall Pines Yurt, located on your own private Boundary Waters lake, is available year-round. In the summer, you can hike or bike to the yurt and in the winter, ski or snowshoe in. The Croft Yurt is available only during the winter and serves as a welcome overnight stop for skiers traveling along the Banadad Ski Trail on a Yurt to Yurt Ski Adventure Trip.
