Remote Location: We are located 26 miles north of Grand Marais, MN, halfway up the Gunflint Trail, in the heart of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Clearwater Lake is an entry point into the BWCA. Due to our remoteness we cater to the type of guest who wants to take a break from the constant connectivity of a 21st century lifestyle. We look for the same sort of person in our staff members. There is no TV and no cell phone service on the Gunflint Trail and the internet is only available in the lodge. If you can’t handle a summer away from the conveniences of modern life then this might not be the position for you. If you can appreciate working hard during your shift and then slowing down, disconnecting and heading out for a day of fishing or hiking in the heart of an untouched wilderness on your time off, we’d love to hear from you!
