We were outfitted through CCO for canoes and lodging the night before. When we arrived the lake was still frozen so they allowed us use of the lodge showers the morning before our trip. Erik also let us know that the lodge was open all night so we could hang out there and have a fire. The lodge was great and full of history. The breakfast before our trip and the shower after were both great. The customer service was another plus. All of our questions and concerns were addressed and we really felt like Erik wanted us to have a great trip. A great trip was had by all, if we ever go back to this part of the BW, we'll surely be using CCO. Thanks.

We came here for the last night of the 2013 season and found a lovely setting, a warm welcome, a comfortable bed and an excellent breakfast. The lodge is charming and the fireplace so inviting that only the wonderful scenery can drag you away.

We had a great family vacation at clearwater lodge. We explored the lakes, hiking trails, and Grand Marias. The staff at Clearwater was very helpful and accommodating. We will be coming back next summer!

When planning a trip for my husband, sister-in-law and I it was important to find the perfect outfitter. The Clearwater team was perfect! I choose them based on many reviews and was thrilled with everything they did. At every step Adam, Kasey, Erik and crew accomodated us to make our trip everything we wanted it to be. We had a great time. The gear was first rate and Adam answered every question about every piece. The food was more than plentiful and excellent. Adam recommended a wonderful route based on the needs and preferences of our group (we added two more friends before leaving). He suggested day trips that included wildlife and a great waterfall hike. There are lots of outfitters for the BWCA but Clearwater Lodge is my first and best choice!!

We stayed at Clearwater Lodge in the Bed and Breakfast for two nights and enjoyed every minute. We love the area, but the camping out days have passed. This was a great way to get every bit of the glory of this area and enjoy the comforts of a lodge. The beds were comfortable and cozy, the breakfasts were delicious, and sitting around the fire having a cup of tea or coffee and enjoying chatting with the other guests was delightful. Adam and Kasey are the perfect hosts, eager to share their love and knowledge of the lodge and area. Their love for what they do and where they do it is a big part of the charm. We will be back, and will recommend it to everyone we know heading up to God's Country.

Room Tip: The B&B rooms are small but cozy, and perfect for a couple. The suites look wonderful too, with...

We used Clearwater for partial outfitting and put-in transport for a week long trip in the BWCAW this summer. The gear we got was top notch and all the folks we worked with were great. Lovely, historic lodge to boot and a pretty well stocked store for last minute needs. Would highly recommend and we'll almost certainly be back!

I didn't stay in the rooms but Tripadvisor makes us rate them anyway - so 5 stars across the board!
