Stayed at Bearskin for 1week beginning Aug.2, 2014. Three generations including 11 and 14 year old boys. Stayed in one of the cabins. Fished, swam, canoed, picked blueberries. Loved every minute. Cabin was nicely furnished. Staff terrific. Will return.

Just returned from a 3 day family get-away at Bearskin Lodge and it was wonderful. This was our first time staying this far into the Gunflint Trail and I expect we could not have asked for a better experience. This is a peaceful and tranquil place. Each cabin/lodge has its own dock and we had the whole row of four... More

The wife and I stayed at Bearskin Lodge the night before our entry into Boundary Waters. We got up there a little late so we didn't get much time to enjoy all the lodge has to offer but we were impressed. There was a nice hot tub house, sauna, lodge, and lake available to guests. There seemed to be plentiful... More

We had dreamed of a fishing vacation to BWCAWA for years. We knew nothing of this lodge when planning began, but found outstanding reviews for it wherever we looked. There were five family members in our group and all had a fantastic time. The boats were nearly new, well maintained, and fully equipped. The cabins were clean comfortable, and were... More

We stumbled across Bearskin Lodge while taking a daytrip to the Gunflint Trail a couple years ago and had talked booking a Gunflint Trail vacation there since then. This past week we finally did, and our stay at Bearskin exceeded all expectations. We are a family of five, and booked Lodge #2 to get three bedrooms all on the second... More

We did the outfitter part that they offer back in Aug of 2012. They were so nice and helpful. The price is pretty comparable for all you get. They Provided everything! We only had to pack our clothes. The Trip was 3 nights out in the boundary waters. They gave us a kevlar canoe with food, tent, etc. They showed... More

Our family of 9 spent the week between Christmas and New Years. Temps bottomed out at. -30, but we loved every minute. The skiing is spectacular, the scenery second to none. Warm toasty cabin, with ski trails right outside the door. The best place in the north woods!

We are a family of 11 and visited Bearskin during the first week of January. We shared two cabins and enjoyed a wonderful experience all around. From the warm welcome we received at check in, to the delightful service of hot cocoa and wine in the lodge on a snowy afternoon, to the staff answering questions and assisting us with... More

If you want to truly get away in the North Woods, this is a wonderful location and destination. Totally not crowded ... 26 miles up the Gunflint Trail. X-country skiing, hiking, sauna, hot tub, cozy quarters and warm staff - Andy, Quinn, Bob, Sue, et al. Luxuriously rustic. Rusticly luxurious. Highly recommended.

Our family of four spent a week at Bearskin Lodge in June. The cabin was amazing and the scenery was breath-taking. We spend a lot of time up North in the summer, but this was our first time at Bearskin. I would have rated this property a 5/5 except for the customer service. Don't get me wrong - most of... More

BearskinLodge, Owner at Bearskin Lodge, responded to this review

It sounds like your family had a delightful, memorable trip to Bearskin Lodge. Bearskin is genuinely a one-of-a-kind resort, a very beautiful and unique family-friendly destination on the edge of the BWCA. Our staff members and owners work long, exhausting hours in the summer but in spite of that, we generally get very positive feedback about the personal quality of... More
