Overall - excellent However, when friends/families share cabins and they have more than one boat with the, I don't believe there should be a charge for the second boat because not every cabin brings a boat and there was plenty of dock space.

This was our second trip to Bear Paw. We love this beautiful location, just 10 miles from Itasca State Park. Tracy & Joel work hard to keep the resort in pristine condition to ensure all visitors have a very pleasant get-away experience. Right outside the patio door, hummingbirds continually guard their territory (defending their sugar water feeders) or you can... More

We really felt very relaxed at Bear Paw Resort. It is a beautiful resort, very clean and well maintained. Though the resort was full it was very quiet, almost like you were the only ones on Two Inlet Lake. Joel, Tracy and their adult children were wonderful, very friendly and helpful. The cabin was very comfortable and had everything you... More

What the resort may or may not offer, Joel and Tracy make up for. Both hosts work hard to see that you are comfortable and provided for. For me personally, Joel has helped me through boat trouble, trailer trouble, and this year, car trouble. Not many resort owners would take the time.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review and we are happy to help our guests during times of need. Vacation goes way to fast to lose any part of it to "troubles". And thank you for the Room tip; we appreciate suggestions. ~ More

Bear Paw Resort was such a peaceful restful place! Attention to detail to every need of its guests. The owners take the utmost care of the wildlife and the guest get to enjoy hummingbirds feed on their cabin decks and loons and loon babies just steps away! Will be planning a trip again soon!
