Family & Friends Groups

Birthdays, Anniversaries, Family Reunions

Sometimes, it just comes down to needing to get away with a few close friends or relatives. If you have a small group that seeks some pampering in order to rejuvenate or a larger group looking for a location to accomodate all of your needs, come to Caribou Highlands resort on Lutsen Mountains. The first thing that will refresh you is our clean mountain air. No kidding, its nature-fresh scent will hit you at the same time as our magnificent mountain views and vista of Lake Superior’s blue bay.

Lodging & Space Options

Our newly renovated lodge is perfect for singles or couples, condos (all with fireplace and mountain view decks) sleep from two to six and some have in-room whirlpools for added luxury. For larger groups, relax in comfort and plenty of space and private bedrooms in a town home or Poplar ridge home. Outdoor beauty… Indoor luxury, for a perfect getaway experience.

Your group will find welcoming and comfortable space that can be set to your needs. Choose the new Moose Mountain View Meeting Room with expansive windows looking out to the courtyard or the centrally located meeting room in the main lodge. Depending on your size and need for tables and electric, our two meeting rooms best accommodate up to 50 or 80 people. For smaller groups, our Poplar Ridge Homes provide an excellent executive home venue.

Our group sales manager will help you with planning all arrangements to ensure your group’s needs for meeting space, lodging, and food and beverage are met. Our creative culinary team will be happy to work with you and design a menu plan to your liking.

Dining

Mogul’s Grille and Tap room is our new full service restaurant and bar located in our main lodge just down the hall from the conference room. In addition to providing exceptional group banquet service for coffee breaks, buffet and sit down lunches and dinners, Moguls is a casual gathering place where event attendees can relax, enjoy their favorite beverages, and view the extraordinary Sawtooth Mountains. Our mountain view outdoor patio was added in the summer of 2009 and has its own bonfire pit for excellent outdoor seating.

Outdoor barbecues and authentic Northwood’s specialty meals are also available through Moguls banquet and catering service. Our spacious grounds can be set up for your outdoor gathering, or we can cater your event at a nearby Minnesota State Park (see list of nearby state parks below).
