Thank you for visiting Poplar Creek, even though you had to drive 30 miles more. We like your comments about taking time to explore the area and coming back to the seclusion of the bed and breakfast. Hope to see you again. Barbara Young

Thank you for staying at Poplar Creek. Yes, we are very lucky to live near a lake and hiking trails. How wonderful that you saw a cow and her two calves. Not everyone gets the honor. Hope you got good photos. Glad you liked breakfast....More
