About Us

We’re the Bakers

The resort is a business, but it is also our home and a way of life.  We do not have a large staff.  Often it’s just us and 1 or 2 seasonal help.  We welcome you to share our home.

Here in the heart of the Superior National Forest, and on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, you’ll  have the opportunity to enjoy many outdoor activities and abundant wildlife the Gunflint Trail has to offer.  Life will not be handed to you on a platter here!  Get out and experience it first hand.  Teach your children how to survive without TV, cell phones and internet.

Many of our guests become friends, returning to visit several times a year or help us with our spring or fall chores.  We appreciate the help and enjoy watching your children and grandchildren grow.  We’ll do our best to make you feel at home and help you with your needs.  Come experience life at a Northwoods Resort!

We believe that most who come to the Gunflint Trail, desire an intimate experience.  To meet “Trail Folk” and resort owners, learn the history of the area, and attractions.  Share fishing and exploration stories.  We do our best to help first time guests understand what the Gunflint Trail has to offer and Returning Guests often become old friends!  This is not just a job for us, it is a way of life.  We hope you’ll come to share our Northwoods!
