We had a wonderful time at your cabin. It was very comfortable and in a great location. We especially enjoyed deck time while grilling and enjoying the view!

Family and Furbaby Friendly

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent trip to Karibu Kabin in mid March. Wonderful warm cabin that is homey and well stocked. Hiked the ART trail and spent St Patrick's Day in Murphys. Can't wait to go back. Recommendation...print your map of the Dorrington area as no GPS is available to get you to the cabin. Real estate office at the turn off had a map for us. Adam...thank you for sharing your home.

Cozy cabin with great design

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has what you are looking for. A loft with a bathroom that can sleep 2 comfortably. Downstairs are two bedrooms that can sleep 2 each. There is another bathroom that services downstairs. Wall heaters, central heat, and a wood stove keeps the cabin warm in cool weather. (When we stayed)

Great deck complete with chairs, bbq, and table. Plus too many other amenities to list.

The best way I can put it is that it felt like home.

Cozy wonderful place!

We had a great time at the cabin. It had everything we needed and the kids had a blast playing in the snow. Look forward to returning again.

2nd Stay

  • 5 of 5

Just as good as the first. Lots of snow. The kids had a blast sledding down the unplowed driveway (there is a plowed driveway that leads to the front porch). Everything was great. We will likely book again.

A winter wonderland!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time at Karibu Kabin! It was the perfect getaway before the kids went back to college! It was exactly as described on VRBO and Adam was extremely accommodating. We will absolutely visit again!
