We stayed in the four bedroom Poplar Ridge Homes in late June. I was confused on the layout based on the website, so I decided to write this review to help know how the room is laid out. It is comprised of a 2 bedroom unit, a one bedroom unit, and a studio. Each unit has a separate entrance, but... More

Stay at the Caribou Main Lodge for the Lutsen99er in June 2015 I have to admit I have written other reviews of this property, all positive of course. I figure I do another positive review. Check in was done well, staff were very friendly. Property has good parking and good access to everything. Room was very clean and a great... More

We've always stayed in the Popular Ridge, as they have excellent access right down to Moose Mt and the ski lifts! Rooms are clean, spacious, great kitchen for cooking large meals. There is a wood burning fireplace on the main level and two other gas fireplaces in the 4 bedroom unit. It's nice to get to side-by-side 4 bedroom units... More

We stayed in a Popular Ridge unit which was a 4 bdrm condo and was well furnished and comfortable. The wood burning fireplace and the 2 gas fireplaces worked well and gave it a very cozy feel. The cupboards were well stocked with dishes, pots and even spices. The only thing we found not working was the toaster. The over-sized... More

Room was very clean. The decorations and feel of the room was wonderful. It was a little smaller than I had expected but still very nice. However, the showers water pressure was slightly better than a trickle... The internet connection (wifi) was unusable. Generally when I go on vacation I don't need wifi, but this time both my wife and... More

We enjoyed a stay in a Nordic Condo in early April. The property shows its age and some wear and tear as others have noted, but the room had a very nice layout and was comfortable and well-equipped. The flat screen T.V. has a DVD player and the front desk has movies you can check out. There are also games... More

Stayed in 2 Br Room Popular Home, Unit 610. More room than our family of 4 needed. Very nice layout with kitchen, fireplace and well furnished and decorated throughout. Large kids room could have slept 4 itself. Not really a ski in/ski out as others mentioned but I did try one day and hiked up 20 feet to get to... More

This facility is run down, out dated, and poorly maintained. Service is horrible to boot. Being close to slopes not worth it, would rather be farther away in a nicer facility. Not coming back to stay here.

We stayed in a three bedroom town house for the weekend and the stay was wonderful. We were able to walk outside and have immediate access to the slopes.

Just returned from an awesome Spring Break trip at Caribou Highlands & Lutsen Ski Resort. We stayed in an Executive Lodge 4 Bedroom that was also Pet Friendly. While there was a slight snafu at check-in, Kimberly quickly resolved it, provided us with a gift card for dinner on 'them' at Moguls restaurant, and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Our... More
