My husband and I stayed at this quaint B+B, Ollie’s room, for 4 nights in early January. We loved every minute of it. Barbara and Ted were such great hosts - we enjoyed their company and stories every evening and the accommodations were great. Everything you need to cook your own

Thank you. Ted and I appreciate the wonderful review. We remember how cold it was during your stay. You did not let that stop you from skiing and snowshoeing everyday. You dressed for the cold. Having a fireplace to come back to is nice. So glad you enjoyed our stories, but we also know that our guests need privacy too. We hope to see you again. Barbara and Ted.

Poplar Creek Guesthouse Bed and Breakfast is on Little Ollie Lake. This is also a bay of a larger lake called Poplar Lake. There is a inlet that you can canoe to get to the larger lake. Little Ollie lake is a secluded, quiet lake, very near the Boundary Waters wilderness. The lake has small mouth bass and walleye too.
