Eight of us (six adults, 2 children) stayed in one of the townhomes. It was not huge, but still felt spacious enough. Especially since it was way too cold to ski our first day and all of us spent the day together inside. Loved the view, the fireplace, and being able to ski in and out of the townhouse the... More

The townhome that we stayed in was very nice. It felt very cozy and homey although it is a lot more compact than one thinks it will be. Clean except for the person who stayed before us didnt wash the dishes well and the towels weren't as clean as I would have liked. The bathrooms were very very nice though!... More

Nice studio, nice view! clean and quiet, but we were there during a slow period. We would request townhouse unit 651 again. Not quite luxurious, but very nice. WiFi would have been nice to have. Did I say nice?

Super nice resort. You will feel like you are at home with all the amenities. Most units have fireplaces. Indoor pool and very large hot tub to soak those bones after a long day skiing. Kitchen equipped with everything you need to make your awesome comfort food.

My family has stayed here a couple of times, once in a condo during the summer and now in a lodge room during the winter ski season, and really enjoyed it. The hotel staff are unfailingly friendly and professional and knowledgeable about the area. We loved being able to ski directly from the lodge, and enjoyed many of the amenities--a... More

I rented an executive townhome during the third week of July 2014. The townhome was nice but dated. The resort offers a indoor and outdoor pool. The outdoor pool is nice but the indoor pool is small and had rust stains running down the walls. The Whirlpool next to the indoor pool was broken during our stay. There was a... More

I recently was in the process of booking a suite here. When I called back to secure my room, it seemed like the original woman I spoke to was never there so I spoke to a new woman. This new person clearly had no idea what she was doing and told me my room (a suite) was no long available.... More

Just returned from a 3 night anniversary trip. We stayed in a poplar ridge studio. It was just what we wanted: king bed, whirlpool tub for 2 (in front of a big window looking out to Moose mt!) a fireplace and a small deck. It was very private and relaxing. The whole resort was VERY quiet. The poplar ridge are... More

I've been visiting this resort for the last 7 years and love it! I've tried Eagle Ridge and I will continue to stay at Caribou Highlands. The staff is always great. We love their food. There is a number of great options for rooms. We always like to stay in a room with a kitchen. Mogul's serves great food-all meals!... More
