Unique Features

In addition to this 4-plex villa, we have 6 lakeshore cabins that are well spaced for privacy. Our resort also has campgrounds and a gift shop full of unique gifts, groceries, ice, gas, bait, tackle, and licenses, and a laundromat just steps from our main lodge. Bring your boat, or use one of ours. It's always a good day spent fishing at Nor'Wester Lodge. We provide complete and partial outfitting services from our base on Poplar Lake. We have fishing boats with motors, paddleboats, a pontoon boat, and a variety of canoes available for rental.

Things To Do

There's good hunting in the fall and the back roads light up with brilliant reds and yellows. No matter what season it is, you’ll want to start your fishing on Poplar Lake, then try any of the other scenic, clear, remote, and productive lakes in the Gunflint Trail region.

A premier destination for snowmobiling thanks to reliable snow depth from December though March. Ride from groomed trails to your door.

MaryAnn Harren — 5 star. We have been coming to the Gunflint Trail area for over 40 years. One of our favorite Lakes to canoe is Popular Lake, a beautiful lake with many islands about 30 miles from Grand Marais. We have been renting canoes from Nor'Wester Lodge. This is an excellent entry point to the lake for both day tripping or for starting a trip into the BWCA. Nor'Wester has a great variety of canoes and very friendly people who will meet your needs.
Matt Sweetman — 5 star. I've been staying at the Nor'Wester for 17 years. Beautiful place, wonderful people. Can't wait to go back. Thanks Carl and Luana!
