We were traveling in AK and stayed one night at Caribou Cabins in Tok. Caribou Cabins is a great place to stay in a nice country setting. Would return next time we are in the Tok area and stay more than one night next time. The rooms are very nice & clean.

There were 2 problems I had with this place. First of all, the mold. Not in the cabin but on the food for the continental breakfast. The bagged waffles were covered in it. I didn't check the expiration dates on the rest of the food but clearly the staff are not paying too much attention if at least 5 packets...

The waffles in question are Camaillas's Kitchen brand Sweet Belgian Waffles, individually wrapped and ready to eat. This product comes with spots as part of their caramelization and cooking process. They appear this way in the aisle at Sam’s Club at time of purchase. They are a very popular breakfast item so we can assure you that they don’t sit...

Tok is a very tiny community with a nice visitor's center. We went to our lodging and found our cabin like a fairy tale. A little house with everything needed in it, immaculate. All this in the middle of a forest. Nice self service breakfast. We would have stayed longer if I could.

We're glad you enjoyed our quiet setting. We do put a lot of effort in to our continental breakfast so we're glad you enjoyed it. Hopefully next time you can stay longer. Thanks!

We stayed here during a trip from Anchorage to Haines. It was the perfect stop for our family. We loved the porch on the cabins and the beds were very comfortable. Everyone we met was very friendly and helpful.

While Tok itself is nothing more than a resting point, Caribou Cabins will make it memorable. After a two week trek through Alaska and staying in 9 hotels, Caribou Cabins was definitely at the top. The place is immaculate and filled with every amenity one could expect in the middle of a broken down town. Chris and his wife were...

Yes, Tok is more of a resting place than a destination that's why we do focus on making our cabins as comfortable and memorable as possible. Thanks!

Caribou cabin was a wonderful experience. Private cabin with the comforts you would expect from a nice hotel in a quiet, forested setting. We enjoyed relaxing on the front porch and were able to have our pets with us as well.

We're glad you enjoyed the quiet, peaceful setting. When designed right, pet friendly rooms are easy to maintain.

Tok, AK doesn't have that many lodging options. These cabins were very new, clean and neat and off the beaten track, so this is one of the better ones. We stayed in Ptarmigan, the smallest. Never could find the thermostat, so we were chilly that night. The female proprietor who greeted us wasn't the friendliest; would help if you welcome...

If you're looking for a stop between Whitehorse, YT and Anchorage this is a great little spot. The cabins are new and well furnished and the owners are great. We are a military family on a relocation from the lower 48 states and this was an awesome last stopover.

TheGreatLand, Owner at Caribou Cabins, responded to this review

We get a lot of military families relocating in and out of Alaska. It's been a huge part of our business. We also always enjoy seeing people again when they're transferring back out a few years later. It's quite an honor to have them stay with us on their first and last night in Alaska. Thanks!

Let me start by saying I travel regularly with my 3 small children alone. I have owned, managed and cleaned my own vacation rentals in Hawaii for several years.

We were very pleasantly surprised by cabins 1 & 2--beautiful log work, comfortable beds, jetted tubs w/adequate hot water, high-speed wi-fi, & an amazing breakfast. Each of these cabins slept 5 very comfortably (and could have slept a couple more if needed). This place is in the woods just off the beaten path, yet only a few minutes to everything...
