Property Description

Location: Gunflint Trail

Poplar Creek Retreat is a beautiful, secluded cabin located midway up the Gunflint Trail. All the modern conveniences with the ambiance of a North Woods cabin. Here you are just a short walk to Little Ollie Lake with easy access to Poplar Lake and the BWCA canoeing, plus access to miles of mountain bike, snowshoe, and X-Country ski trails.

The home boasts two bedrooms and two bathrooms on two cozy levels. There is a 3-season sun porch, gas fireplace, and you have access to 475 feet of shared Little Ollie Lake shoreline with a seasonal dock. This cabin is perfect for any North Shore vacation be it a personal retreat, romantic getaway, or gathering with friends and family.

Passing through the town of Grand Marais, MN you will find the entrance to the Gunflint Trail Scenic Byway near the public library, marked by a statue of a voyageur and his canoe and a black bear. Take this remote wilderness road up to Poplar Creek Retreat, roughly 35 miles away. Along the way, you are certain to spot many wildlife creatures. These can include deer, bear, fox, wolf, and even moose! In the springtime, many of Poplar Creek Retreat's visitors have reported seeing mother moose with their calves, a sight that is becoming more and more rare all over the world. Take a day trip into the BWAC or hop over to the Trail Center Lodge for a bite to eat. Head down the trail into the quiet, peaceful town of Grand Marais for a day of shopping and dining at the many restaurants that make this quaint town so unique. Whatever your plans may be, Poplar Creek Retreat is an idyllic, peaceful home base for your next trip up the Gunflint Trail.

Everyone I have worked with has always been amazing!
We love Poplar Creek Retreat! This was our 4th stay at this property and we can't wait to go back. We love the secluded location, although we had visible neighbors the last two years. Having access to a washer/dryer and dishwasher is a huge bonus. The wifi is nice to have but we honestly try to use it as little as possible, we like to be able to disconnect when up north. The best feature is the fact that the cabin is pet friendly (although our senior pups are starting to struggle with the stairs).
