Enjoy Hiking, Biking, Boating, Fishing and more at Base Camp, a cozy vacation rental home on popular Caribou Lake. 

This beautiful, 2 level, 1,200 sq ft cabin sits on the shore of Caribou Lake in northern Minnesota in the town of Lutsen.  A private dock, large deck, and wooded lot offer plenty of things to enjoy right at the cabin. Then cozy up by the gas fireplace or watch a movie after a long day of exploring the beautiful North Shore of Lake Superior.

Base Camp is conveniently located near Lutsen Mountain Ski Hill, Superior National Golf Course, many Federal and State park trails, and the shores of Lake Superior are just minutes away. For a night out experience live music at Papa Charlie's, Lutsen Resort, or many of the dining options in Lutsen and Grand Marais. Once you visit this cabin you will want to make Base Camp your home base for many adventures to come.  

You don't have to go far, however, to find your own adventure at Base Camp.  Just step outside and down to your private dock jetting out over Caribou Lake.  Bring your canoe, kayak, or motor boat with you and head out for a day on the lake.  Fish are aplenty and the neighbors are friendly.  Caribou Lake is a favorite amongst fisherman, canoers, and paddleboarders looking for a relaxing afternoon on the lake.  Then when the sun goes down, light a fire in the outdoor fire ring, share stories and roast marshmallows with your friends and family.

Pets are welcome with prior approval and an additional fee.  2 pet maximum.

Lovely house with a nice dock and very close to the lake. We enjoyed watching ducks on the water, and were visited by deer and a fox. We also really liked the gas fireplace/stove.

Nice property, the Deck is close to the Lake and Dock. Although it is close to the Road there is not a lot of traffic.

Booking through your agent was adequate. I wouldnt say she was sunshiny, but she got it booked for me.
Id you're on the north shore for skiing, hiking or relaxation, Base camp is a perfect location. Just a few minutes from Lutsen Mountain, Lockports amazing breakfast and a few steps from the lake.

Your team was great and very responsive. Thank you!
Loved every minute at Basecamp. We couldn't get the dog out of the water! She loved her vacation too! Thanks so much! One small suggestion, an outdoor thermometer would be awesome! We went from summer weather to Fall weather during our stay and always wondered about the outside temperature.

All good!!. They sent Pictures of the Dock for me to set up a Rod Holder and check to make sure the WiFi worked upon arrival and got us an early Check In. Top Shelf Service!!
Very nice Cabin, although the Hallway and the Main Bathroom are a bit of Cave along with the Kitchen even in the middle of the day, it all worked out great with turning on Lights - we just like natural light as long as we can get it during the day. The Septic Alarm went off a lot at the first part of our stay but when you have the heavy rain the area has seen for the Season not much you can do about that. Living Room Furniture is a bit low to the floor but comfortable.

Fantastic! Very helpful,!
BASECAMP is an absolute delight! The deck to Lake and dock were just spectacular! Spent hours sitting and enjoying the constant play of light, song of loons, eagle flying overhead and amazing peace. Added to that is the opportunity to play in/on the lake, walk, hike and great access to the big lake shore and area. The house itself is clean, comfortable and well stocked with all needs. Cooked most meals in the great kitchen. A definite place to consider!

House is very clean and comfortable. Deck and view are fantastic. Carabou lake does not have a lot of cabins so during the week it is very quiet and wonderful to kayak. Location for hiking is excellent.

The location of Base Camp was great for us. Our family spent the MEA weekend hiking and it was convenient to state parks. The cabin was lovely. It was furnished well and had everything we needed for the weekend. It was clean and well kept.

We loved the cabin and the location! THe cabin was clean and comfortable. The deck and windows and sliding doors made the lake feel close inside or outside. Enjoyed the fire-pit too. Easy access for anyone who may not be able to do steps. The only complaint is that we are tall and the shower head was low. But, that will not stop us from going back. Bring cooking spices.

Great lakeside location. Caribu Lake is great for canoeing or kayaking. Saw eagles, ducks, and deer. Beautiful for stargazing at night. Lots of short hikes available in the area, several with amazing waterfalls. Comfortable beds. Great shower. Beautiful deck and large fire pit. Excellent as a "Base Camp" for exploring the North Shore/Grand Marais.
