As Far as You Can Get From the Rest of the World

Bearskin Lodge is an idyllic getaway on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. This is the only resort on the pristine East Bearskin Lake, surrounded by Minnesota's legendary Northwoods and the best fishing, canoeing, hiking and biking you can find. Bearskin Lodge Outfitters can guide you on the ultimate canoe trip along the Gunflint Trail. And the fun doesn't stop in the winter! Cross country skiing and snowshoeing are fantastic on 77km of onsite, groomed trails. Outside each cabin or villa is pristine wilderness - no mowed lawns or fountains. Inside, you'll find the kind of place for warm, comfortable gatherings you don't often find at a wilderness resort - with crackling fireplaces, distinctive decor and no phones or televisions. Enjoy private use of the hot tub house and sauna. Leave the world behind – and discover a natural world far more beautiful than you could ever imagine!
