I just stayed at Gunflint Pines in August 2012, I've stayed here in the past however its been about 12 years. I have to say Gunflint Pines is absolutely perfect. Bob and Shari are personable and very helpful. Very laid back and not over the top like some higher priced resorts on the Gunflint Trail. The cabins, cottages and Aframes are clean and the beds are comfortable! This is a perfect choice if you are looking for a northern Minnesota getaway on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness this is it and it will not break you. Remember your coming to have a true northern Minnesota experience not a "club med" experience. You'll find everything you need at Gunflint Pines and be glad you did!

This is a wonderful place to stay. We had campsite #2 and it had plenty of room for our vehicle and camper on the top level, a second level with a picinc table that we threw a screen tent over and a third level that had a picnic table, fire pit, 2-seater chairs and a prep table. Its right on the lake and has beautiful views of the sunset. The staff was very friendly. Lee and his sidekick Rick were very helpful. The shower facilities are average but adequate. The lake is great for fishing and swimming. We enjoyed our stay and hope to be able to come back for a longer stay next time!

This is a great place to get away from it all. The Bakers are wonderful and make you feel very welcome. They welcome dogs but, if you do not bring one they have a couple of cuties that will be glad to entertain you! The cabins are clean and comfortable. The lake view is wonderful and peaceful. We have been going for several years now and just love it1

Our two-family group spent our annual post-Christmas ski holiday at Gunflint Pines again this year. As always, the Bakers made certain that our stay was pleasurable. The cabins were clean, pre-heated, and had wood stacked by the stove. And this year, Mother-Nature was on our side as well. In early January, no place else in the state had snow so we were prepared for hiking, but the trails and trees on the northern Gunflint Trail were snow-covered and the skiing was some of the best we've had. It felt like winter is suposed to be! Bob and his co-groomers do a great job making the best of available snow, and the grooming is consistently excellent.

Our families return to Gunflint Pines year after year because we think it's the friendliest, most comfortable, and most reasonably priced resort on Gunflint Lake. And they're dog-friendly, too.

We wanted a simple, clean, comfortable escape from our crazy lives for a few days, where we could bring the dogs ( 2 labs) and not worry about them bothering anyone....We had three girls ( 11, 14,16) with us and then enjoyed being off unplugged for a while...no internet ( actually you can check your email in the main lodge) , no TV, no cell service. Yet we had a full kitchen, bath and heat- best of both worlds. The Bakers were very helpful in suggesting appropriate hikes that left us tired and sleepy at the end of the day. They supply free firewood and we had a firo each night, used the canoes to explore Gunflint Lake, and we also went horseback riding.

If you are looking for luxury you will be disappointed. But if you have been there and done 'that', you might enjoy this type of trip. We enjoyed it enough that we will be backnext year

Room Tip: We were in a 'cottage' which accomodated our group of five, but next year we will get one of...

Absolutely fantastic campsites. Each campsite has both an RV area and a tent area with the tent area being right on the lake. We stayed in campsite 5 and it was fanstastic. Two fire rings, 3 picnic tables, a wooden couple chairs with built-in table. We were able to find a flat place for our 9x12 tent. We were separated from our two neighbors and had plenty of privacy. We were across the road from the shower house.

The campground owners, Bob and Shari Baker, were very helpful (they lent us an electrical cord) and also let us carry a balance in the (well-stocked) camp store.

We couldn't ask for a better experience and we fully intend to return

We had a wonderful time with friends and family and thoroughly enjoyed the Bakers hospitality and Bob's fishing guide skills...our most productive guided fishing trip ever!
