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

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... More

Not far off the main road, easily accessible, large nice main lodge, check in was a breeze, nice friendly staff, very helpful. Went there on short notice as just really needed a break, lucky for me they had a cabin available, I was real surprised how clean cabin and screened porch were, most cabins I have visited have spider webs...

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... More

My wife and I have been bringing out kids to Bearskin for 5 years now. We look forward to this week away every year, and always enjoy our time at cabin 11. No phones, television, etc. LOVE IT!! This year we got some great moose photos! Thanks again for another great stay. Hope to see you this Fall/winter.

My family stayed here for 4 days earlier this month. We had done some extensive searching online, using TripAdvisor and other resources and Bearskin Lodge seemed ideal. The lodge is easy to find. It’s just off the Gun Flint Trail (Highway 12) and is about 26 miles/45 minutes west of Grand Marais in Northern Minnesota. The lodge is signed from... More

Enjoyed some incredible snow and trail condtions to get in our last cross country skiing for the season. Bearskin takes great care of their trails on property. Resort is very welcoming and relaxing place to spend time in the north woods.

This was our 29th consecutive winter visit. Over the years were have experienced every kind of weather, this year was very cold, most years just right. We stayed for 9 days which makes for a relaxing visit, if there is a bad weather day it doesn't bother you to stay in and read, relax and other pursuits. The ski trails... More

We stayed in early January, 2015 and were amazed at the beauty, charm and solitude of this special place. We were in Cabin 10 and it was perfect for us. Owners and staff were very courteous and helpful. My wife and daughter loved their massage and we all loved the dog sleds. This is the true Minnesota. We are definitely... More
