About Caribou Yurt

Caribou Yurt Bed & Breakfast is in a gorgeous rural setting. It sits on a bluff overlooking the historic Caribou Ski Area, only 15 minutes from down town Pocatello, Idaho. Located on private property, it is a short drive up beautiful Buckskin Canyon.

Caribou Yurt borders hundreds of acres of public land full of great terrain for all types of adventures. Yurt guests can walk, hike, jog, mountain bike, motorcycle or ATV ride, horse back ride, ski, sled, or snow machine, literally out the front door of the Yurt. There is a variety of trails suited for all levels of expertise and abilities.

Essentially, you can pick your adventure while “yurting” here at Caribou Yurt. If back country travel is not your forte’, you don’t even need to leave the Yurt. Views from the Yurt are fantastic! By day, the site offers privacy and comfort of the surrounding hills. You can open the windows and let the mountain air fill the space. In the evenings, sit around the fire pit and watch amazing sunsets (and of course roast a hot dog or make s’mores). As night falls, the Yurt offers a cozy place to stretch out on the bed and watch the stars through the 5’ clear dome. On cool nights, cozy up to the wood stove and read a good book or watch a movie you have been waiting to see.

Your Caribou Yurt stay will be one of your favorite memories!
