We just returned from a 3-night trip to Bearskin Lodge. This was our first time on the Gunflint, and we were so impressed! This resort is not only totally worth the drive from Mpls- it is also unlike anywhere else I've been. I had a hard time convincing my husband that we needed to make the extra effort to drive...

Our eighth year as guests with the best staff, the best accommodations and best scenery ever. This was our third year in Cabin number one in the bay area of the resort. Very nice quaint cabin--you can have it both ways here. It's so private, who would know that the cabin next to you, though, is just a stone's throw...

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...

All of us who own resorts adjacent to the Gunflint Trail national forest service campgrounds find that it can be difficult for campers to understand that our Lodge is not actually the campground public visitor center. Our mission is to serve our resort guests. We happily offer many of those services to the campers also, but one should not expect...

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...

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...

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...
