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.

Fall color getaway trips


Fall used to be the secret perfect travel season -- pleasant temperatures for outdoor activities, no bugs, more wildlife sightings, lower cabin rates, and fewer people.  All of that is still true, but "fewer people" has changed a bit.  Fall has been discovered by travelers and while it's still not as busy as a late July date, fall weekends book up early.  If you travel mid-week, you'll find it slightly easier to book last minute reservations, but demand for mid-week stays has also greatly increased.  Couples and friends have discovered fall, and they're loving it!


Canoe, kayak, fish, hike, and explore the BWCA, then return to your cozy cabin for a relaxing evening around the fire or on your dock.  The best time to book for fall is now. Give us a call or email us at and we will help you plan an autumn of outdoor memories.
