Another wonderful year and already looking forward to next year. Doug, Ruth Ann and Danny go out of their way to insure everything is in great condition so that we can relax and have a wonderful time. There is plenty to do, swimming, fishing, water bikes, paddle boards and kayaks. The lodge is well equipped so even if there is a rainy day we still have a good time. Thanks again Doug, Ruth Ann and Danny.

Property's Favorite Review
Bear Paw has only gotten better over the years. We have been staying here for one week each summer since 2009. Doug, Ruthann, and Danny are great to interact with on a daily basis and are incredibly friendly and responsive. The cabins are always well-maintained and clean. I wouldn’t even consider going to another resort for our vacation week.

Bear Paw Resort was a perfect fit for our multi-family vacation! The cabins were all very clean and the owners were very accommodating to all of our needs. We all enjoyed fishing, tubing, time on the beach, and the beautiful sunsets! Thanks Doug, Ruth, and Danny!

Cabins were clean, neat, everything worked. Everyone was friendly, service was prompt. Cinnamon Rolls were AMAZING! Family Friendly resort with lots of dock space and first rate equipment. The beach and swimming area were great. Took a guided fishing tour with Danny, he was very knowledgeable about the local area and where to go for all different types of fish. He was patient with us as non-professional fisher-people and the size and quality of fish we caught were great - even caught a personal best northern! Can't wait to go back next year!

We love this resort, we have searched for years for our perfect vacation resort. 2022 was our 4th year. Bear Paw has a fishing guide that is more than accommodating for whatever kind of fishing. The owners are very friendly and kind. Two Inlets lake has the most beautiful sunset out of the cabin windows. If you are a bird watcher there are many kinds of birds to observe.

The owners and their son are awesome. The cabins and grounds are well maintained. The cabin was extremely clean and welcoming. The pizza, chicken wings, ice cream and cinnamon rolls delivered to our cabin were amazing. Highly recommend for a great northern Minnesota getaway!

clean cabins, lot's of amenities for children and adults. We enjoyed having a shuffle board tourney and shooting pool in the store/gameroom. Great homemade pizzas! Located on a very good fishing lake. Location is close to Park Rapids and Dorset.

We had a great time at your typical, small, family-friendly resort on quiet Two Inlets Lake. We loved the simplicity and we had a blast! The owner is super nice and so accommodating! However, the furniture was not very comfy inside the cabin. If beds and chairs were updated I would give 5 stars. We are returning next year and are already planning our trip!

Thanks for the review. We have owned the resort for a few years now and have been updating the cabins constantly. You may have noticed the cabins are in excellent condition. We started by staining all the cabins so that they have a classic look. Log siding with green metal roofs and knotty pine interiors. Almost everything has been updated. While we couldn't do all of them at once (55 beds in 11 cabins), we have begun replacing mattresses and are about 1/3 of the way through. We are happy you are coming back and look forward to seeing you again this summer.

We've been to many resorts, this year was our 3rd at Bear Paw. Everything we were looking for in cabins, distance to our dock level in front of our cabin, and AMAZING sunsets and wild life at it's best. The owners of this resort are very personable and helpful. It's so nice to have owners that care about you and want to visit a bit every day in the lodge or just out and about on the property. You cannot get nicer people that care so much and that are proud of how clean and kept up their property is. Make this your vacation spot and you too will experience relaxation like you never have before.
