Packages & Specials


3 nights for for the price of 2 Special 


fireplace Sunday – Thursday nights, until December 18

Get cozy in a cabin, and stay and extra day for free.  Early winter is a great time to enjoy solitude on the Gunflint Trail.  Read a great book, finish a daunting project, or just get away from the holiday rush with friends and family.

Special rate available for new reservations only in select cabins, Sunday – Thursday nights, between December 1 – December 18.  Bearskin is on a Value Season rate schedule at this time, so prices are already at their lowest of the year. Adding a 3rd night for free cuts the nightly  cost down even more.   Due to our deep cleaning schedule, not every cabin is available during this special.

Note that most restaurants in the area will not be open at this time — but you don’t care, because your cabin has complete kitchen facilities! The Main Lodge is on shortened hours during early December, but staff are available to help you whenever you need anything.




Fall Work Weekend 2015 | $99 per person

10.26.13 trail crew dinner


As always, work weekend 2014 was fun.  Work weekend 2015 starts Friday, October 30, which makes it the perfect getaway for people who want something fun to do over Halloween weekend that doesn’t involve a costume.  We promise to fill your trick or treat bag with a little Halloween candy!

Join the Bearskin crew for the final trimming on Bearskin’s miles and miles of wilderness Ski Trails. Check into your Bearskin cabin Friday night. Join the crew Saturday morning, October 31, on the trails for final hand trimming. Work until 1:00, then head back to your cabin for a late lunch. Join us Saturday night for dinner in the main lodge. Check-out on Sunday morning, November 2. All for only $99/person. Of course, we expect a little trail clearing work from you in exchange for the great price, but we promise the emphasis will be on the “weekend” not “work.”
