I decided to take my 23 yr old daughter skiing for her birthday. I picked Caribou Highlands because it's a property you can ski right onto Lutsen Mountain. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and the bathroom was very nice. They have a cute gift shop and a very good restaurant/Bar. There is a nice... More

We've stayed at Caribou Highlands several times. The town homes are wonderful and spacious. A great place for a family holiday gathering or friends weekend up North. We enjoy hiking to Carlton Peak and through all of the nearby state parks while the leaves are changing. There are so many things to do in the area. Can't wait to come... More

We've eaten at Moguls (their restaurant) many times but didn't stay there before because it had been expensive. But this time they had a special going on (2 nights, get third night free) and we jumped on it. We stayed in the lodge itself and got king sized bed room which was really very comfortable. The bed was nice and... More

We stayed in a ski in-ski out townhome this last weekend which was absolutely perfect for our group of 10. Although the weather was very chilly we still had an amazing time and the snow conditions were great. Our greatest compliment should go to the staff. The front desk staff and housekeeping staff were more than accommodating making sure that... More

We rented a townhouse during the Sawtooth 100 mile race. This Lodge is beautiful and sleepy in the early fall. All the amenities a family of 9 (three generations) could ask for and more. There is an indoor and outdoor pool. Good restaurant and friendly service. The location is beautiful.

We stayed in a 2-story, 3-bedroom condo. Outdoor ski storage - ability to ski in/ski out depends on the snow conditions. It was compact, but very functional for a busy family of 5 (could sleep 8). Kitchen worked very well. Pool was nice. Bathrooms were clean. Fireworks on New Year's Eve. Beautiful mountain views. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Excellent service, great staff. Great to have options for everyone; skiing, swimming, exercise equipment, massage, hot tub, etc. Eight people in a 10 people unit was cozy. Helped to have the half bath in addition to the two full baths. Staff was very accommodating and responded quickly to requests for everything from dish detergent to extra towels to shoveling off...

Stayed in a 2-story condo--compact but very well laid out floorplan. The ability to ski in/out is great. The views of the mountain are spectacular. Condo needs some repair/replacement work--the over-the-stove microwave did not work, so there was a second microwave on the counter, which took up what very little counter space there was. The downstairs bathroom had almost no... More

Our lodge room was not as I thought.....A super 8 would have more character. Ground floor like a dungeon, when I went to front desk to ask about other accomodations was told since we had pet room, this was what was available. Was told someone would come look at our toilet that wasn't flushing properly. Got back to our room,... More
