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...

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 has a beautiful location and the cabins meet every one of our large family needs. Look...

My husband and I rented a cabin for our 5th anniversary. It was a wonderful trip. Every staff member we met was very nice and helpful. We stayed in Cabin 9. It was very spacious and clean. The fireplace was amazing! We cozied up to it every evening. The full sized kitchen was well appointed. It had everything we could...

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...

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...

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...

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...

We stumbled across this place after another lodge was fully booked and I'm glad we did. What a wonderful resort! Our cabin was very clean and tidy and we felt very welcome. We came to Bearskin for our first wedding anniversary and the staff left us a nice gift basket for the occasion. The Gun Flint trail is stunningly beautiful...

Not far off the main road, easily accessible, large nice main lodge, check in was a breeze, nice friendly staff, very helpful.

We have stayed in the large log cabins twice and have had good experiences. Two bedrooms (one with a double or queen plus a twin) and I believe the sofa pulls out if you need it. We slept five quite comfortably. Wood-burning fireplace, screened in porch and full kitchen. The layout of this log cabin is very nice. Bedrooms and...

“If you like being close to the lodge amenities, choose a lodge unit. If you like more seclusion, choose a cabin.”
