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  

Dog Sled Trips

Erik Simula, one of Minnesota's most renowned mushers, is offering dog sled trips again at Bearskin this year.  Most mushing trips at other resorts involve just a ride, but a trip with Erik is an educational experience.  His goal is for you to leave with a vast new store of knowledge about dog teams, mushers, and sleds.  (One of our guests last week commented that he'd just finished a session with "Professor Simula." )  You can meet Erik and his dog team most mornings  at 9:30 AM out by the tipi on our lake.  Trips with Erik are running most days of the week and can be booked by calling (218 388-2292) or emailing our front desk (


Saturday night fine dining until March 7th

Scott Bergstrom, our outstanding winter chef, is serving great meals again starting this winter.  Scott offers upscale casual dining every Saturday until March 7.  Dress like you've been out on the ski trails, but eat like you're in a fine restaurant. It's wonderful food!  Reserve early -- our space is small and Scott's reputation for excellent cuisine has resulted in many nights filling up well before the weekend.
