Sometimes, the best way to reconnect is to disconnect

How is it that when you set out to leave the world behind, the world is exactly what you discover? Lakes, trees, trails, a canoe in the water, and an outfitter to set you up. All right here by your Bearskin Lodge cabin on Minnesota’s famed Gunflint Trail. Nestled in the pristine woods of northeastern Minnesota between Lake Superior and the Boundary Waters Canoe area (BWCA wilderness). As far as you can get from the rest of the world.

“Of the many lodges strung out along the Gunflint, north of Grand Marais, Bearskin most elegantly combines the pleasures of wilderness and luxury, creatures and comfort” — Minnesota Monthly

“Bearskin is a first class secluded wilderness getaway for friends or couples” — Men’s Journal  

Fall is the new summer

Autumn is the perfect travel time on the Gunflint Trail and the North Shore. Sunny days, bug-free hiking, ample moose sightings, minimal crowds -- all those things make fall a treat for travelers.  We still have a few weekend spots available if you're flexible about your dates, and we have fantastic options still open if you can travel Monday - Friday. Give us a call and we'll help you make a plan.


Since 1925 Bearskin has been part of the family history for generations of guests. Give yourself some new stories to retell. Check here for a list of the remaining fall openings, or you can email or call us at (800) 338 - 4110 to get the most up-to-date info.
