This resort knows that the word 'authentic' has been diluted beyond recognition. We were thrilled to settle in to our cabin, because it was clean and had every amenity expected. We really appreciated the service at every turn, for our impeccably clean and fully-functional cabin that had every necessary amenity. Our expectations were exceeded in every respect, and our future... More

A lifelong friend invited me to Bearskin with him in late January of 2009. We stayed in one of the snug cabins nestled in by the frozen and beautiful snowcovered East Bearskin Lake. I was so impressed with the everything from the accomodations to the warm hospitality of the owners and staff that, since then, I have returned three more... More

A friend and I went to Bearskin the week after the fourth of July to get away and we had the most enjoyable week ever. We checked in and were show to a beautiful cabin with our own private dock. We were invited to a dinner the first night to meet other guests and had a great time. The cabin... More

We stayed at Bearskin for the first time a few weeks ago. We brought a large family group that ranged in ages from about 2 to 60 years old. Everyone had a blast and hopes to return at some point or another. The accommodations are nice, clean and comfortable. The location is out of this world and their great staff... More

I would give this place a better review if it were not for the "you're bothering me" attitude from the staff member we asked for assistance. Not very nice or welcoming and frankly not somewhere I would spend my money again.

We're so sorry one of our employees did not meet your expectations. If you look back at our other reviews, normally the wonderful level of assistance our guests and visitors receive at Bearskin is one of our strong points. We work very hard at being helpful and usually we succeed. We'd love it if you would take a few minutes... More

An amazing fourth year here. We decided to stay in a two-story Lodge Unit this year, as we had a group of five of us. We were very pleased with the roominess of these units. The cabins are awesome, but we wanted to try something different in a two-floor arrangement this year with two teenagers and a pre-schooler. As always,... More

Bearskin lodge is FANTASTIC! Our cabin was super super clean, decorated very nicely, beds were very comfortable, & even the shower was awesome. Our own full kitchen with dining had everything imaginable - even cookie sheets and the private dock was icing on the cake! My son and I went up there to try and see a moose and we... More

My boyfriend and I (23 and 25 yrs) stayed at Bearskin Lodge for 4 nights in February. In the 8 years we have dated, this was one of out favorite trips (and we have been a lot of places). Some of our best memories happened here - cross country skiing, seeing wildlife and a couple moose, feeding the birds, hot... More

We were worried when there was still no snow in Grand Marais, but just over the ridge on the Gunflint Trail, it was plentiful. We woke up the first morning to 0 degrees, bright sun, and 77 km of groomed cross country ski trails to explore. What a beautiful winter wonderland it was after this brown quasi-winter! We had a...

My husband and I had such a great time at Bearskin Lodge over Thanksgiving week. It's a great place to get away and relax in the cabin or make the most of the beautiful woods around the area. The fresh bread on arrival was a delicious surprise and the pies they offer are fantastic!! There are lots of trails to... More
