Gunflint Trail’s Original Outfitter.
Over 100 Years of Outfitting.
Clearwater Historic Lodge and Canoe Outfitters is the original outfitter and lodge on the Gunflint Trail in the beautiful Boundary Waters Canoe Area of NE Minnesota. Founded in 1915 by Charlie and Petra Boostrom, they chose Clearwater Lake because they believed its view was the best on the Gunflint Trail. Today, our lodge is the oldest and largest free standing hand-hewn log structure in the region and is listed on the National Historic Register. Our 9 rustic, yet beautiful cabins — each with lake views — are the perfect summer home away from home. For shorter stops on your way through the Gunflint Trail, stay in our quaint bed-and-breakfast suites or rooms. We also have bunkhouse accommodations–perfect the night before a canoe trip through the BWCA. Guests have enjoyed Clearwater’s beauty and hospitality for 100 years, and our commitment is to preserve it for guests to enjoy for another century. Clearwater Historic Lodge is proud to be the original Gunflint Trail lodging & canoe outfitters.
