Escape to Caribou Lake in Lutsen! Located just beneath the famous White Sky Rock overlook and walking distance to Superior Hiking Trail, combined with your private dock on Caribou Lake, this cozy cabin is perfect for up to 6 people. With three bedrooms, one bathroom, and an open living area, this cabin boasts a king bed in main level bedroom and a full bed and 3 twin beds on the second level, giving you plenty of space to relax and sleep.  In the open living area, you will find a well-equipped kitchen,  dining area, and living room with gas fireplace. A very nice deck, perfect for grilling, relaxing, and looking out to the lake, surrounds the front and one side of the home.

A gentle slope takes you to your private shoreline, bordered by towering White Pines. Enjoy the sounds of the north woods. The cabin is “TV free”, as it should be, because you are, in fact, here to escape. The public boat launch is nearby for easy access to your permanent dock, with complimentary docking for private boats during your stay. Bring your canoe, kayak, or motor boat with you and head out for a day on the lake.  Fish are plentiful and the neighbors are friendly.  Caribou Lake is a favorite among fisherman, canoers, and paddleboarders anticipating 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.

At Caribou Escape you may arrive and never want to leave!  Should you choose to, however, you will find this home is close to a wide variety of activities and restaurants.  You are conveniently located near Lutsen Mountain Ski Hill, Superior National Golf Course, many Federal and State Park trails, and the shores of Lake Superior. 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 arrive, you will fall in love with Caribou Escape. 

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

Working with the Cascade Vacation Rentals was staff was convenient and easy. They were always very responsive and respectful.
The location of Caribou Escape is amazing. It is on a beautiful lake and has a very nice backyard/dock area. It is very serene. The house worked well for 6 adults. The kitchen was stocked with everything needed for cooking which was nice. The only negative comment that I have is that the house could have been cleaned more thoroughly. We found some trash (pop cans, etc..) leftover in one of the upper bedrooms and a pair of underwear under the bed that was not any of ours. Everything else was great though and the staff at Cascade Vacation Rentals were very responsive throughout the whole process.

We did have issues getting in because the battery for the key code died. we had to use the neighbors
The cabin and the location are just beautiful. We had 3 couples which was perfect. We had great weather except for 1 night/day so we went to the North Shore Winery-That was so fun!! That evening we put a canopy over the deck that we had brought up knowing it was going to rain that day, worked great so that we could still hang out on the deck. There is little to no cell phone coverage. One of the 6 of us has Verizon and that sort of worked-no land line!

Staff are very friendly and helpful
Cabin was very nice, easy check-in,pretty location. There were a few things that was bad.. #1 boat dock is only good for small boats due to large rocks and water level down, #2 trees and brush very overgrown around deck and stairs going down to lake, #3 gas grill needs to be replaced, very bad shape.

This property is honestly breathtaking. The lake was quiet, the view from the cabin was perfect. The inside of the cabin was far nicer than we were expecting. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook. Taking out the trash was no problem for us, as this is common for such a remote place. We plan on making a yearly visit!

did everything by email and website, easy peasy.
We loved our stay at this cozy cabin--it was so great to get unplugged for a few days. It was warm and we were very pleasantly surprised by how well stocked the kitchen was in terms of cooking equipment. We had a few visits from a lovely fox too!

We enjoyed our stay on caribou lake. Excellent location - Caribou Lake is beautiful and our favorite place to stay on the North Shore. Close to everything we wanted to do. The cabin was nice - it had a good layout and everything we needed. The inside was nicer than I expected from the pictures. Our only complaint was that the yard felt a little overgrown and non-maintained, and we wish we had a better view of the lake from the cabin (I think cutting back some bushes and branches would help with that).

I appreciate being able to rent online and the rental process was seamless. When I called the office to report the minor issues the rental manager was apologetic and receptive to my concerns.
This is my second time staying at Caribou Escape. My family and I like the lay-out of the house, full-size kitchen, private dock, and lack of TV. We also like being close to Lake Superior and both Grand Marais and Lutsen. We appreciate being able to bring our dog to the property.

The property is beautiful. Great Lake. Very few cabins and very quiet. The cabin has everything you need. Great deck area. Nice kitchen, eating and living areas. Great dock! The bathroom needs work. It smelled bad. The floor needs to be replaced. The shower curtain was filthy. The cushion on the bench was dirty. Having to take the garbage is inconvenient but not a deal breaker. The location is great. Love the north shore!

The home was beautiful and surprisingly well-equipped for being a vacation rental. The lake was very quiet - not a lot of activity the weekend we stayed. We loved the dock and the amount of space on the property. It was a fantastic stay and we would definitely come back. The only suggestion I would make is to consider offering use of a canoe/paddle boat or fishing poles - it would've offered a little more entertainment since there is no TV or Internet (a welcome break, by the way!!!)
