Beyond expectations

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I wanted a unique get-away for our 16 yr anniversary. We loved staying at the Caribou Yurt and it couldn't have been more perfect.

This is considered "ruffing it" due to the minimal amenities, but was so worth it. The weather was a bit on the chilly side, but the wood burning stove just about cooked us out :) We had to open the windows to cool it down a bit and eventually we were able to dial in the temperature just right.

The view from the yurt is just amazing. If you look hard you can barely see the town (Pocatello) down below, but most of the view is all mountains, pine trees and rolling sagebrush hills. Also, the yurt has a clear round plexiglass skylight that was really cool to check out the stars while relaxing on the bed at night.

We had dinner in town that evening (not too many fancy options there) and then headed back for a movie, treats and games. There was a stock of hot chocolate, tea, etc. and a microwave. The small sink is drain only and does not have running water. They do stock several gallons of potable water.

Breakfast in the morning blew away all our expectations. They went above and beyond. I mean, holy smokes, it was better than any breakfast I've had at any hotel. In fact, it rivaled even my most elaborate home-made meals. We're talking german pancakes, hash browns, sausage, buttered toast, fruit preserve, fruit bowl, and orange juice. They even sent us a note in advance asking for any special food requests or allergies. We asked that they surprise us.

We enjoyed this so much that we wanted to surprise my in-laws with a reservations. We also want to go back with our kids. Highly recommend as a unique and special experience.

A special place in an amazing setting

  • 5 of 5

This such an amazing property. We stayed as a family of five with young children. Everything was ready when we arrived and we had a great stay - everything is there for an outdoor adventure while enjoying a comfortable bed, kitchen and other facilities. The yurt is fantastic, the kids enjoyed the trampoline, the surroundings are beautiful, the bed is great. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful and the breakfast is a wonderful start to the day. We can highly recommend this property!

Had a great stay in the Caribou Yurt

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our time in the Caribou Yurt. It was a great experience. The bed was comfortable, the place was clean and our children enjoyed the outdoor activities. It has been put on our list of places to come back to! We were welcomed in the morning with a superb breakfast. We have recommended the place to several of our friends and family and will definitely be coming back.

Very relaxing and beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time spending a Saturday at the yurt. We arrived in the afternoon and hiked to the top of a mountain directly from the yurt on one of the trails nearby. We spent the rest of the day playing games, making a fire, and watching DVD's. It rained during the night and it was so nice listening to the pitter-patter of rain on the yurt. The breakfast the next morning was so delicious! We will definitely be back for more yurt adventures!

We had such a fun time at the caribou yurt. The snow was amazing. The yurt was warm and cozy after a long day in the snow. My kids didn't want to leave and neither did I. We will definitely be comming back to experience the summer at the yurt. The breakfast was delicious! Thank you Cami and Lance for helping make my sons birthday an amazingly fun and memorable 10th birthday!!!
