Spent 3 nights at Caribou Highland with my daughter. I was disappointed the first night as the room I got was bottom Floor next to the restaurant entrance and ice machine when I paid for mountain view. However, the next day, front desk clerk rectified my room with an upgrade. Staff from front desk , waitress to the guide are... More

We decided to take a last minute weekend getaway to the north shore/Lutsen area. There were just the two of us (kids were on vacation with grandparents) so we wanted something affordable. Calling Caribou Highlands, the front desk staff was super helpful in offering a few options for our weekend. We decided on the Poplar Ridge Studio. The accommodations met... More

Rooms are way overpriced for the condition. No drapes on a first floor room, only a shade. People walking by are able to look in. Closing the shade made the room feel like a morgue. Insufficient lighting.

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

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
