Clearwater Historic Lodge and Canoe Outfitters is the original outfitter and lodge on the Gunflint Trail, on the edge of the beautifully pristine Boundary Waters Canoe Area of Northeastern Minnesota.  On the National Register of Historic Places, the only lodge on Clearwater Lake was built in 1926 by pioneer Charlie Boostrom and has been preserved and maintained over the years to retain the look and feel of a time gone by. Charlie chose to build the lodge and subsequent resort because of its location and incredible views down Clearwater Lake and its stunning palisades.
