We spent seven days in a Nordic slopeside studio unit over spring break. It was great to have a full kitchen for meals and the scenery was beautiful. We also had a fantastic massage at the studio on the premises. However, there were a number of issues with our stay that we could not overlook. First, the walls are so... More

It was a pleasant place to stay that was pet friendly. The location was nice for a ski in/ ski out. For the price yes I would stay again. The restaurant had very good food and the prices were reasonable.

Our family- grandparents, parents, and 3 young children had a terrific time at Caribou Highlands Resort in Lutsen, MN. Although not everyone stayed all night in our Villager Unit, we were able to enjoy meals, skiing, and swimming together. Everyone at the resort was friendly and we had all the amenities that we needed. We are eager to try this... More

We came up for a family spring break ski trip and did not have a good experience. We stayed in one of the Alpine condos. The unit was nice on the surface, but when you actually try to use anything, it quickly disappoints. Little things like burned out lightbulbs and flies in the room, to actual safety issues like a...

this was our second trip to Caribou. We liked the location - ease of ski in / ski out. And i appreciate the mid week discount.

I could not help myself but leave a review to offset some of the negative reviews of this resort. We stayed in a Alpine with Whirlpool room and were very impressed. This is not a five star resort but the amenities were nice. There was a full kitchen, updated televisions, nice chair and couch, wood burning fireplace and a deck... More

We stayed at the Superior town homes for President's Day weekend. The location is great for skiing, but the units themselves are a bit dated and small. Everything was clean, but the heating was uneven and difficult to control. The price seemed excessive for the quality of the lodgings. The indoor pool was nice to have available. The wood burning...

The beds were decent, but the pillows were very small. There weren't too many channels on the TV, maybe 20, consisting of about 5 local channels and 15 cable channels. They make up... More
