Really good value for the money. We were disappointed to discover that wash machine was out of order.
It would have been nice to have been warned about it and that the nearest laundry mat is located at Gunflint Pines. The only thing that would have been nice to have in the kitchen was a rubber scraper. There was a mouse in the cabin. There were quite a few cobwebs.
Reviewed: Jul 25, Home is beautiful and so is the property. Lovely time sitting on the deck.. It was very hot and could use a fan for every room. Railing to floating dock needs repair, vertical poles are loose. We are older people and it was a bit dangerous getting to the floating dock.. Tub needs safety strips. Was disappointed clothes wash machine was out of order. Had planned to wash a few things and not pack so heavily for the week.
Located in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
Large front windows could use bird safety decals. Two birds hit the windows and died on the deck while we were sitting there. Stove is a mess. These are mostly minor things.
We loved our stay except for the black flies. We don't expect perfection that far out in the country. A bit rustic is good. Loved the friendly little animals that came to visit every day for a peanut. Loved to walk the road and other nearby hiking spots. Loved bird watching and boating in the evening. Had a huge storm which scared the bejeezes out of us and downed a small tree in the driveway.. May return some day but it would be in month of September..

Comfy furniture and everything you could want in a vacation home--including no internet! I consider that a plus! Reviewed: Aug 18, Third time here, I obviously love it. It is always quiet neighbor wise. This was our first visit to Clearwater Lodge, and it was even better than we expected. We had a group of 6 couples, long time friends, who were looking for something new for the couples weekend we had been doing for over 25 years.
The cabins were great, the lodge is so cool, great views of and access to the lake, great wilderness hiking nearby, we even saw a moose cow and calf just as we pulled in to the lodge. Hosts are very helpful and knowledgeable. We will be back for more Gunflint Trail lodging!! My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time on our recent visit. The cabin and scenery were beautiful. Everyone who worked there was extremely friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back again.

Thanks for making it such a wonderful trip for us. My family and I recently stayed at the Clearwater Historic Lodge and loved it. The lodge truly is historic and is exactly what you envision when you think what a lodge in Minnesota would look like. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful.
They gave us a tip on where to go for the best chance to see a Moose and they were right! We had two sightings! The setting of the lodge is truly beautiful, a picturesque scene for Gunflint Trail lodging. There is a stunning vista around almost every turn.
Oh and the breakfasts were exactly what you need before setting out for a long day of adventure. The flapjacks and sausage make you feel like a lumberjack and the french toast and bacon were scrumptious. We will return.

Mike K October 18, Had a charming lodge room that was very comfortable. The facilities were terrific; handled our large group easily, outdoor fire ring was well stocked for evening gatherings. Staff was friendly and very helpful with suggestions on hiking and anything else we needed. So many things to see and do you can't fit them all in. Lodge is beautiful, well cared for and the views are spectacular, especially with the beautiful fall colors. A great time was had by all on our Gunflint Trail lodging excursion! Beautiful location!
As a family of 5 we had a wonderful stay. Our cabin was super cozy and had an amazing view of the lake and nearby Palisades. We enjoyed a bonfire. The sauna was very relaxing. We were able to rent a motor boat for the day to explore the lake and hike the Palisades.
The level of service and hospitality was exceptional! Our three kids, 11,13 and 16 had a blast! They warmly welcomed us and provided great service. They were very helpful upon our return, anticipating our needs and going above and beyond. It is a well-maintained place in a beautiful location. Aaron Z November 1, I am almost reluctant to tell the world how wonderful Clearwater Lodge is—because for me this is the best of the best and I want it for myself! I have visited all the other resorts on the Gunflint Trail lodging area.
However, with all the loving work that the new manager has put into this, I just have to point out what a gem it is. I've been coming to Clearwater for 22 years and it has never looked better. Our BWCA outfitters are here to help you plan your canoe trip or cabin vacation. Give us a call at On behalf of myself and my family, I wanted to thank you and your staff for making our August trip to the boundary waters so magical. You were all so patient with us and so helpful. Everything was packed with care and we wanted for nothing. The fish was out of this world, the equipment top notch.
