I tell my family that words cannot describe the experience of staying at Bearskin Lodge. It's a feeling. We have stayed here July 09 and July 10 for one week. The cabins are VERY clean as are the grounds. The resort is VERY quiet, and each cabin is secluded...you can't see the other cabins from your own, eventhough they are... More

We recently returned from a North Shore/Gunflint trip to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Spent the last three days at the Bearskin Lodge, and really enjoyed the surroundings. The lodge is beautiful, cabin #2 was so cozy, grounds were absolutely beautiful, and the location halfway up the Gunflint trail was perfect. Lots of fun hiking and canoeing in the area.... More

The scenery and wildlife was like no other. The staff was very nice and the resort is really, really nice! All cabins are off in their own part of the woods with their own docks for your boat/boats. The fishing was alright, due to the hot summer the lake was down 2 feet, so the walleyes were really hiding. Overall... More

Bob and staff were very accomodating. Anna (naturalist) spent a great deal of time with the girls on some wonderful activities. Ryan (chef and all around helper) taught canoeing and... More

We booked a trip to Bearskin for the kids' spring break, hoping to get in on some end of winter x-country skiing. Unfortunately with the warm temps, the skiing fizzled out, but we were not dissapointed. The lodge staff were very friendly and helped us come up with plenty of other activities to enjoy the last of winter. We discovered... More

We were looking for a quiet place "up north" to go cross country skiing, and had stumbled upon the Bearskin Lodge the last time we were up in Grand Marais. We bought a day pass then and thought the trails were wonderful, and were anxious to get back and actually stay in a cabin because the place had such character.... More

Bearskin Lodge provides a really wonderful setting for enjoying the beauty of the Minnesota Northwoods. Our cabin was really comfortable and provided a beautiful view overlooking the lake. The cross-country ski trails are accessible right on the property and provide many miles of enjoyment through a variety of terrain. It is hard to describe how beautiful it is there. A... More

Granda & grandpa booked the trip. We somwhat reluctantly went along. THey said it would be like the BWCA, only with showers and pillows andless bugs. We didn't seeethe point of "almost BWCA" They were right, best of both worlds. Tremendous family time for all 3 generations. Go canoeing in the wilderness, come back to wine on the dock. Superb...

Stayed in cabin #5 over MEA weekend. Great little real log cabin. All the cabins have woods on either side so neighbors do not bother you. Cabin #5 has its own woodshed. There is a small screened porch. The living room is small and one of the chairs in front of the fireplace is wobbly but the view to the... More
