“Excellent B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2011

We stayed here twice on our way to and from Alaska. The first time we stayed in the Ptarmigan Cabin. It's quite small, but was more than adequate for an overnight stop. The second time we stayed in one of the larger cabins. Both were clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast was one of the most complete we had....Hot breakfast was available in the form of frozen breakfast sandwiches and there was a good variety of breads, muffins and bagels. The hosts were friendly, but not intrusive. We enjoyed our stay both times in a beautiful location.

These cabins would be great for a family. The cabins were large, clean and nicely laid out with two double beds upstairs in the loft and a queen bed and a single on the ground floor. The cabin was equipped with a mini Fridge, microwave, a small wall mounted TV and wireless internet access. I am a big guy and the shower was a bit small. The cabin had a front porch that was large and furnished with two nice size outdoor chairs, a table, and mosquitoes the size of buzzards and the ferocity of a tiger. Breakfast was in the form of a large selection of frozen microwave foods, bagels, rolls, coffee, etc.

The only two things that kept my rating from being a "5 star" was that the queen bed sank to the middle when I laid on it so my wife chose to sleep on the single bed and the curtains did not do much to keep out the perpetual summer light. Over all though, I would stay here again and highly recommend the cabins.

We stayed here for one night on the way back from Alaska. The cabins were clean and very roomy. The WiFi connection was good. Breakfast was a do-it-yourself affair but there were lots of choices so we have no complaints about breakfast.

Staying in a cabin means that you do not have the personal interaction with the innkeeper that you have in a B&B but the Caribou Cabins were very nice. I would stay there again if I needed a place to stay in Tok.

We had a "Denali cabin" and we loved it! It was our favourite place to sleep on our entire 2.5-week trip and we felt sad to leave. The log-cabins are located outside of Tok in the woods so you have absolute quiet and a gorgeous scenery. Each cabin has a lovingly decorated front porch with flowers, chairs and a small table. Our cabin had a queen bed downstairs, together with the bathroom, a jacuzzi (!), table and chairs, fridge and microwave. Then there are also stairs leading to an upper floor open to the one below with an additional queen bed, a couch, a commode with additional blankets and pillows, and its own window. The owners put great attention to detail: the curtains, footmat, bed covers and pillows are all beautiful and well-matched. You can tell that everything is still very new. We didn't see the owners at all (which I wouldn't say is necessarily a bad thing): the key was in an envelope attached to the front door of the main building that the owners live in (they were away). For complimentay breakfast (with an unusually big selection of bread) we served ourselves in the guest room in the main building and then left the key in a basket specially designed for it. A note: I would put a maximum of three people (we were two) in one (Denali) cabin as the bed upstairs is below an inclined ceiling that gets very close to the bed on one half of it so there isn't much space left to breathe for a second person in that bed. If ever I'll make it back to Alaska I'll make sure to stay at this place again so I absolutely recommend it!

We enjoyed a one night stay at Caribou Cabins. The owner was nice enough to upgrade us for free (without asking) to a cabin that had a jacuzzi tub, which was wonderful after a long day of travel. The cabin was very spacious and had everything we would need, including a fridge, microwave and a coffee pot. The breakfast in the main house was more than adequate, and had more than the usual chain hotels offered. If nothing else, it all seemed a lot more like a home environment. There were games to play, though we didn't have time, and a swing set for the kids if we had had time to use it. The cabin itself was clean and neat. Very quiet. The loft had a bed and a futon to pull out, which was perfect for two kids. Free wi-fi was fabulous, considering much of AK doesn't have this. We wish we could have stayed more than one night.

Overall, I would highly recommend this B&B and would love to stay there again if we ever come back through Tok. It was much nicer than a hotel, and we are not the typical B&B type of people.
