Big Bear Lodge is a small and unique resort located on Poplar Lake, just off the historic Gunflint Trail in the Arrowhead Region of northeastern Minnesota. The resort is one of five founding resorts on the Trail …Moredating back to the early 1930's. Our traditional one-room cabins have warm wood throughout with log beams, and fireplaces or wood-burning stoves. There are 5 full housekeeping cabins, and a newly refurbished lodge which was completed in 2014. In the lodge there is a small dining area with bar where you can savor one of our made from scratch homemade pizzas, or a duck or elk burger along with a locally crafted beer or a glass of wine. The lodge has some unique features including 2 large Rumsford fireplaces built by a local artisan out of native stones, a lounge on the main floor, gift shop, and a lounge/library on the loft level. Three cozy beautiful guest rooms are on the upper level two with views of the lake, all have private 3/4 baths, and a private entrance. All cabins have modern amenities, including a full kitchen, and 3/4 bath. Lakeside sits a handcrafted sauna free for guests to enjoy. Poplar Lake has 4 BWCA entry points and we offer free canoe usage for those who like a casual day on the lake. Big Bear is a four season resort - 3 lodge guest rooms are available and 3 of our cabins are open for winter enthusiasts. This is a terrific area for those who want to get away from it all, relax reconnect with nature and enjoy great fishing, hiking, canoeing, horseback riding, fabulous sunsets and unsurpassed star lit nights all in the beautiful Superior National Forest just outside the Boundary Waters Canoe Wilderness Area.
