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.

We needed to stay overnight in Tok and after the Westmark was not taking any reservations (possibly due to closing for the winter) I decided to book a night here after seeing their ad in the Alaska Milepost Guide.

The property is well off the main highways and is absolutely quiet. In fact if it weren't for the signs you'd drive by and not realize the cabins were there.

Innkeeper Kris was nice enough to stay up for our late arrival, something that not all B&B operators do. He allowed us nighttime access to the dining area stocked with some continental breakfast-type foods, which was nice as we had been driving over 12 hours and had not eaten since Fairbanks. It saved us from having to go back into town just for a snack.

Now on to the cabins...they are real log cabins, but get those thoughts of drafty, creaky, bug-infested, primitive shacks out of your head. They are spotlessly clean with modern features like double paned windows, glass storm door, satellite TV, and a cozy but adequate bathroom with plenty of hot water. Our cabin even had a hot tub, though we didn't use it at all. It was a cold night when we arrived, but the two heaters had no problem keeping the cabin warm. In fact we just used only one of them after a while. The beds were comfortable and my friend and I had no problem sleeping.

WiFi was not a problem, though we were in Cabin 1 which is closest to the main house. Other cabins may or may not have as good a signal. Breakfast is included, and while it is of a continental-style variety consisting primarily of breads, cereals, and fruits, they also provide hard boiled eggs for those like me who want some protein in their breakfast as well.

The only complaint is that the lighting is a bit dim in the loft area and in the area below the loft where the table and hot tub are. But the issue is minor.

I would have loved to stay longer but we had a long drive to do the next day.

This place is fantastic and please do not listen to the one bad review. We are a military family moving to Fairbanks and this was the perfect spot! Much nicer than anywhere we stayed in Canada and very resonably priced. The cabins are perfect and our two dogs are very happy. Everything is spotless and the owner is friendly and helpful. If you stay in Tok this is the best option. It is nice because it is just off the main drag so it is very quite.

Tok served as our last stopover before getting to Anchorage on a mad dash from San Francisco. My husband had researched and found the Caribou Cabins on-line and thought they sounded nice enough to go ahead and book a cabin.

I loved it! The place was very cute - everything is as described on their site. We got a taste for Northern hospitality when we pulled in and learned that although the proprietors were on vacation, they had left a nice note and let us know that our cabin (#2, I think) was open. We did have 2 issues - the toilet tank wouldn't refill with water after the first flush, and I think our furnace pilot light was out (thankfully there was also a separate heater in the unit... maybe they didn't mean for our furnace to be used). We called the owner and although he tried, he couldn't get someone over to the property that night - oh well, we filled up the bowl using the ice bucket when needed and it flushed fine.

We loved it here and felt quite comfortable. Unfortunately ,we were only able to stay one night but we were warmly welcomed. We were able to help ourselves to a generous breakfast and the only sour note was that the bed was a bit of a torture rack. Otherwise a lovely spot.
