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...

My husband and I wanted to show my Father why we love it on the Gunflint Trail. So, we booked a lodge unit at Bearskin Lodge. We were in Unit 3. It worked out perfect! My Brother and Sister in Law came with also. Lodge Unit 3 has one bedroom down on the main level with a bathroom and shower...

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...

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...

My family stayed here last summer for a reunion. It was perfect for us. Two of our families stayed in the lodge and one stayed in a cabin. The lodge rooms were very convenient (my teens could easily walk over to the office area to use the internet--this may have changed by now--they were working on getting internet access from...

We had the great pleasure of staying in Cabin 10 at Bearskin last week. It was simply perfect--huge rock fireplace, lots of trees, trails right out of our front door. The sauna was great--cabin was very clean and up to date. We loved it!

We stayed in Cabin 3 and were very happy with cleanliness, comfort, and conveniences. Great system for using Hot Tub House and Sauna so everyone has private time in them. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Boats, motors, and pontoons were in great condition. Plenty of privacy on the grounds. I think Bearskin Lodge attracts naturally quiet people who want...

For several years we've been join up to Grand Marais during the winter months to spend a long weekend with friends.

Thank you for the kind words! We're glad you loved your cabin. We remember you went out moose looking that morning -- hope you had luck spotting one. Bearskin has a different chef almost every season, and the chef plans the featured menu. It was an unusual menu this fall, and we won't repeat this one. Our weekend winter chef,...

Best accommodations and Service on the Gun Flint Trail. Picked fresh blueberries, canoed/portaged on East Bearskin to Crocodile Lake and more. Excellent hiking trails. Great beach, boats, canoes, kayaks and playground. Just in from our annual trip - 14th year in Cabin #2!
