The Caribou Lodge has made our top 5 list of all time! We travel the world in search of those extra special properties that make our trips memorable; one that greets you with excitement that you made the right choice....and bids you farewell with a yearning to return. As soon as the float plane landed and docked at Caribou, we knew that we hit the jackpot with a hidden gem.
In every direction, the view is breathtaking with unspoiled wilderness. Without roads or towns for miles, the silence is deep and welcoming. The cabins are perfect, facing the lake with beds that envelope you for deep, restful sleep. Joe and Bonnie are wonderful hosts, attentive to your every need. Joe took us on amazing hikes while Bonnie cooked up delicious meals. Howie deserves mention too! The resident dog who hung out with us on our deck and played frisbee with our son for hours.
Everything about Caribou exceeded our expectations! We will be back many times. Once you find such a special place, you have to return. Your soul demands it.
