The owners make it feel like your own private cabin, and each time you retrun it will be like 'coming home' A great place to start a tradition.

In 1977 the owners, Tim and Peg established Top-Notch Log Homes and became one of the top builders of log homes in North America. In 1998 they purchased a classic little resort located in the Chippewa National Forest on Caribou Lake, in the Suomi Hills. Nestled in the pines alone 1000 feet of shoreline they built 3 log lodges. This was before vacation rental properties was even a concept, but they knew it was needed. Big lake homes where families and friends could gather to make memories and get away from it all. It's for this reason that each cabin is situated in over 200 feet of private lakeshore, with your own yard, fire pit, sauna, dock, and a huge deck overlooking the lake.

We know the importance of having a place where you can get away from the stress and demands of everyday life and surround yourself with nature and people you love.

Peggy Landin purchased this lodge in 1998

Beautiful surroundings, crystal clear lake, Hiking and ski trails right out your door. In the summer this is a non motorized area so no ATVs please. Motor boats are allowed on the lake, but no Jet skis. The lodges have No TV, or Internet so you will have your love ones undivided attention. You can walk down to the game room for WiFi access. Read our reviews and decide for yourself.

Very private and it will feel like your own personal log home on the lake. If its a special occasion we can accommodate a specific request. Caribou is the First lake north of continental divide making for pure waters. Stop at the Divide on your way and hike the interpretive trail. Snow mobile trail goes through the

GREAT WEEKEND GETAWAY! :)

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for a fantastic weekend staying at cabin #6. Being a group of Norwegians living in Minnesota it is not easy to find rental cabins equivalent to our cabins and cabin traditions back home in Norway, but staying at Buckhorn on Caribou Lake was definitely just like being back home, a feeling seldom sparked when being this far away from our home country. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway, this is surely the place to go. With quiet surroundings and wonderful nature, it will definitely get you away from whatever stress a normal working week might bring. Our group stayed over a weekend in mid-November, and even though there was no snow to cool us of when using the sauna, we did however take a dip in the lake, and yes it was rather cold, yet wonderful!

Thank you so much for a great weekend getaway at Buckhorn on Caribou Lake :)

Second year at cabin 1 and another wonderful vacation with our family--such comfortable accomodations!
We love being there and having so much space--to all be together or go off by yourself and read a book!
spent many hours at the swimming beach -- fishing off the dock and just enjoying the large deck--mornings are perfect overlooking the lake on the deck! Thanks to Peg and Tim for building this beautiful cabin--thanks for another great week!

COUPLES WEEKEND....

  • 5 of 5
After viewing this listing with all the amazing photos, needless to say, we were beyond excited about our reservations for Cabin #1. But when we arrived, the Cabin EXCEEDED our expectations! I can’t even think of one thing that was wrong, missing or could be improved upon. We stayed from a Thursday – Sunday. Even on the last day, I found myself still in awe with all of the beautiful details of this Cabin. While we were there, we all kept talking different groups we would love to come back with. The drive for us was approx. 3 1/2 hours, but WELL WORTH THE DRIVE! Peggy was very nice, friendly and easy to work with. Thanks Peggy! I wish I could click on more stars for a higher rating than Excellent!

SCENIC SERENITY

  • 5 of 5
Our group stayed at this log lodge for a weekend of calm, peace and beauty. And boy, did this place deliver! Our stay was perfect. It is spacious, private and clean. This is not a cabin. It is a home, with everything you could possibly need furnished. The yard is huge with room to play and stroll as you wish. The drive is on one of the very best scenic roads. The lake is nearly as clear as the Caribbean Sea!!

We would not hesitate to rent here again and look forward to visiting in the future. The only
downsides we could see were not enough time here and finding time to visit again! There are no
TV's, but we honestly did not miss them and spent our time sleeping in, reading, playing cards
and exploring the area. Thank you for a relaxing getaway........we needed that!

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
When you book this cabin, cabin #1, you are staying in what we believe to be the most beautiful cabin on the lake. Cabin was very clean and well maintained. This cabin easily accommodated our group of 11 with room to spare. You will delight in comfy beds, ample seating, a well equiped kitchen and large gathering area. The smaller size of the lake makes it possible to be out even in windy weather conditions. Fishing was great. Peg: Thank you for your kind hospitality. We so much enjoyed our stay here. We will definately recommend this property and will definately be back.

FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5
I'm hesitant to write a review because I don't want the word to get out about this fantastic resort! We stayed at Cabin #6 (large log cabin on the water) this past week (Aug 14-21). The cabin was spectacular. It was huge, very comfortable, and well-appointed. The cabin had just about everything we needed with the exception of food. :-) The property is beautiful and the lake is splendid. It's crystal clear, mostly weed-free, and very quiet. We had fun fishing, swimming, canoeing, paddle-boating, hiking, playing games, and having bon-fires. If you're looking for a true "up-north" experience with all the comforts of home, this is your place! We can't wait to come back!
