My first trip to the boundary Waters area. We rented the YURT just a few minutes away from the B&B, it is owned by the same people. When we arrived and checked in we were escorted to the YURT by the owner. Yes it's back in the boonies! The drive back was uneventful as our vehicle had a higher clearance from the ground, if you are going aan SUV or 4 wheel drive is a must. Or you could walk in. We were given a tour of the YURT with ample instructions on operation of all devices. Like campfires? There is a hugh pile of fire wood and a pretty nice fire pit ( you may have to dig it out if the prior occupants didnt) couple of camp chairs included but if more than two people bring yours with . Area is surrounded by trees so limited sight distance unless you walk the 50 feet to the lake then WOW. If you live in the city and have never seen the strs at night you can not imagine the beauty.. we paid extra to join the breakfast at the B&B and was really happy we did. Amazing food great company, lively conversation, endless coffee, juice etc, and a dessert to boot! Althoug we did not stay in the B&B the people that we visited with loved it, a few were repeat visitors , the rest first timers , but all had great things to say. We rented a canoe for a trip to Ruby Lake Falls. We were provided a map and instruction (as we have not canoed before) instructions were good map provided to us and we were off. Owner is very carefull on advising on weather conditions and will let you know based on internet forecast prior to your departure. This is in order to avert possible bad situations. The trip was enjoyable even though the wind picked up and caused us some consternation on our return trip. We enjoyed our time here and am considering a return trip to stay in the B&B. Check it out and go if possible you will have a great time!
