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.

Plan a summer getaway to edge of the BWCA


Families have been making memories at Bearskin Lodge on the Gunflint Trail since 1925.  Many of our guests are on the third or fourth generation of loving their yearly Bearskin getaway.


Canoe, fish, hike, and explore the BWCA, then return to your cozy cabin for a relaxing evening around the fire or on your dock.  We offer summer naturalist activities for the entire family, our Monday night picnic get-together, bonfire events with music -- all complimentary when you stay at Bearskin.  Limited openings left for summer.


Give us a call or email us at and we will help you plan a summer of outdoor memories.
