BuckHorns Resort at Caribou lake, Cabin # 6 was amazing! It had everything a family needed. We were never able to meet the Host, Peg and Tim., that goes to show that everything was in line! Great Family Vacation destination! I couldn’t have been more happy! Thanks again Peg & Tim!!!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful Getaway
This place is a piece of paradise, hidden in a forest with beautiful views of the lake. The cabin instantly makes you feel like you are at home. The owners are quick to respond but keep their distance for you to enjoy the seclusion of the cabin. We definitely will be back to make more memories.

Amazing Lake!
I have never experienced a lake like Caribou Lake before! We were in northern MN, but the water made it look like we were in the tropics! Friendly hosts and a fabulous cabin made for an unforgettable week!

4/5 Good

Beautiful place! Only thing was the road construction and something closer for bait and ice.
Very clean and awesome place!
