The room with hot tub and full kitchen was everything we wanted. The view of the mountain (hillside) over looking the outdoor pool from our deck was very relaxing. The staff was extremely pleasant our room was very clean and up to date.

So much to do and all included! Condo very cozy (small). Balcony under repair which I knew when booked but also had issue with door not locking. Had worked on twice. Beautiful setting in mountain with view of Lake superior over trees. Restaurant good but expensive.

We spent 2 nights at the beginning of August in a Poplar Ridge Studio. There was a fire place, hot tub, private deck, fridge, microwave, toaster, few dishes and good linens. The room was very clean. The restaurant was good and has 1/2 price bottles of wine on Mondays. When you stay at Caribou Highland Lodge you will be surprised... More

Clean and comfortable condos. Wonderful heated indoor and outdoor pools. Plenty of family activities onsite and nearby. We're hiking fiends so the many area state parks were magnificent. Very limited cable TV selection, but who cares, we didn't spend that much time in the condo - and they have a nice selection of free DVD's to choose from. Besides it's... More
