We stayed at Caribou Creek for two nights/three days and I have mixed feelings about the cabin.
The overall condition of the cabin is fine (i.e. exterior appearance, interior flooring and counter tops, etc.). However, there are inconveniences that add up over the course of a weekend and become nuisances.
PROS: Location, access to the two car garage, lots of towels and blankets, well-stocked kitchen, size (4 bedrooms/2 baths).
The location of the cabin is great! It's close to town, yet far enough off Tollhouse to feel away from it all. Also, there are snow hills just behind the cabin that work great for sledding and snow play. Having access to the garage provides space for cars to park and/or guests to have room to store snow gear. There were sleds in the garage as well if you get there and need them. The overall size of the cabin was nice. We had three families (6 adults and 3 kids) and it felt about right.
CONS: Heating, no washer/dryer, cabin layout, hard beds, lack of cabin 'amenities'.
The cabin has heating problems. There is no heat upstairs from the house heater, and space heaters (that were brought by Vacasa) blew the circuit. Downstairs, the bedrooms get all the heat and become hot while the great room is cold. In short, the heat is not distributed well. Not having a working washer and dryer is difficult in the winter. Most of the day is spent outside in the snow, clothes get wet. Also, to be able to wash bath towels during a stay would be nice. Layout has two bedrooms upstairs and two bedrooms downstairs, the rooms are on top of each other. Heads up, with kids and such not much privacy in the bedrooms. King beds are very firm! Personally, I do like firm beds but they were not a hit with the families who slept on them. Last, not many little touches other cabins often provide. For example, no TV options. It was NFL playoffs during our stay so we did watch parts of some of the games. But we were only able to watch anything on the TV because of devices I brought. The Internet was spotty at best and wireless devices will struggle. There wasn't any firewood (at least that I could find), but we had a box of wood so we were mostly alright. The deck and wrap around porch were covered in snow, which I did shovel but it probably should have been done for us.
Overall, like I stated at the start I left with mixed feelings. There were some very positive parts about the cabin which I appreciated and some things that could have been better. The cabin did offer everything that was advertised on its listing so I suppose it's buyer beware. For the right group in the right weather it could work out great. For us on this stay, I'd say it was so-so.
Manager response:

This cabin was beautiful, and you can tell that the owners treasure it and have begun to put a lot of time and upgrades into it. We only booked 2 days, but I wish we had booked more. It felt like a home away from home. The kitchen, bathroom, and main living areas have all been quite obviously updated. There is a 2 car garage which was nice to have access to when it came time to unload and load our things. ( Front door is on 2nd floor. Either way, you have to go up a flight of stairs.) There was a nice assortment of cookware and dishware. There were many clean towels and toiletries waiting for us, and the first floor bathroom has a shower and a bath. I can't say enough nice things about this cabin. It was also fairly close to town. Just a short drive. The only (not even major) complaint I have is that the dryer did not work. This was not a deal breaker for me during a 2 day stay, but a longer visit may require some planning in regard to laundry. In all, a beautiful experience and would love to stay here during winter as well as late summer.
Manager response:
Thank you for your valuable feedback. It sounds like you had a great time. The washer/Dryer was removed from the listing because they are not working. We hope we can host you again soon!

This is a very nice, comfortable home in an attractive development. We found it almost exactly as represented in the virtual tour on the website. It was very clean. The bathrooms had plenty of towels and tissue. There was a nice and plentiful amount of kitchenware and utensils. The beds and furniture were clean and comfortable. There was a good selection of games and DVD's in the living room and we found the lighting attractive and very functional. We used the clothes washer and dryer and both operated fine. Our party consisted of four adults and four children and we were comfortable and enjoyed our three night stay and would definitely consider staying here again.

We had so much fun here! The cabin is in a great location. There are 2 rooms on the main floor and 2 upstairs! The house was clean and had no issues. It felt very home-ey! Definitely would stay again!
