This lodge is pretty and peaceful. Almost all of the staff were friendly and accommodating. My friends and I camped and didn't stay in the lodge, but were told that we could rent kayaks and canoes through the business. The middle aged women that worked there was very rude and made it seem like we were a nuisance. At one... More

Service is always top notch and personable. We have been going to Bearskin since 1991 and love it. The cabins are clean, cozy, quiet and private. The view is spectacular. The drive up the Gunflint Trail is such a beautiful drive. Lots of wildlife! The peace and quiet is what we love most...Bearskin offers everything you need to relax and... More

My husband has been camping near GM for about 40 years and has always wanted to stay at Bearskin. We decided to stay over Memorial Day weekend and it was wonderful. We got a good amount of rain but it didn't matter. We had a fantastic long weekend. We stayed in Cabin #2 and love it! The cabin was charming... More

This was our 30th straight year of staying, always a great relaxing time. The skiing has been great, dog sled rides are nice. We prepared our meals which is a way of keeping expenses down. The kitchen has the basics, we bring special cooking items that are needed.The hot tub was a relaxing time after a day of xc skiing... More

I'm 15 now, and this presidents day weekend will be my year visiting will be my 15th year of visiting the beautiful lodge. As one who's visited every year since being alive, I can say the hospitality the staff offers us never disappoints.

Bearskin Lodge is a really wonderful place. The cabin we stay in is really comfortable, and has all of the things we need to stay nestled happily there. It sits on a lake (which is frozen when we go there in January 2016), and so it is a beautiful and peaceful place to be. We like to cross-country ski, and... More

My wife and I just returned from a relaxing three day cross country ski trip to Bearskin Lodge north of Grand Marais, MN on the Gunflint Trail. We stayed in one of the housekeeping lodge units. It was knotty pine throughout, very attractively decorated in north woods decor, was very clean, plus the ski trails, snowshoeing, and the hot tub... More

If you love pristine wilderness, pitch black night skies filled with a million stars and the chance to see moose, wolves, lynx and other northern wildlife, head for the Gunflint Trail and turn right at Bearskin Lodge. The accommodations are simple, spotless and basic enough to drive you outside-right where you belong. It is a perfect place to escape year-round... More

Great family experience. A quaint, family-owned lodge. We've stayed here for two weeklong vacations in the summer and we've booked again for a third. It's situated on a secluded lake that has little development outside of this lodge and campground. It's not uncommon to talk to other guests who have been coming here for a decade or more. Get back... More
