Love this place for a quiet, relaxed, unplugged vacation. The best is being at a lake without jet skis and motor boats. We've stayed at Lapland twice, once later in Sept. last year when the foliage was turning and it was too cold to swim, and this year, during an unusually warm early Sept. when the water was lovely for...

Lapland Lake is a place out of time. Quiet walks on the wooded trails and paddling on the lake. The cozy cottages that are here are clean, quiet, with fully appointed kitchens, comfortable beds and lazy days. If you want to get away from the insane pace of your hectic world for a couple of days, a week, or more,... More

Our mid-September stay was our second time here. My wife and I especially liked the kayaking and relaxing by the peaceful and beautiful lake. Our kids, ages 12, 8, and 6 had a great time at the beach and on the canoes. We can't wait to come back for cross-country skiing.

We have always enjoyed our stay at Lapland Lake. We come up twice a year, once in the winter to cross country ski and once in the summer to enjoy the lake, the trails and the peace and quiet. The cabin is well furnished and the kitchen cooking equipment has what we need. We are glad that the cabins are... More

Such a peaceful place ! The new owners are doing a great job of keeping the beloved old traditions and adding new.They are up-grading some of the tupas.The beach is great, especially for young children. So the magic continues - its still a welcome respite from life's stressors.

This place just fits me right. Everytime. The grounds are, in a word - gorgeous. Besides the lush greenery, there's dots of color from wildflowers, and the sunlight raking through the trees is mesmerizing. Occasionally - more often than you might expect actually - wildlife scampers by; turkeys and deer seem to be abundant, but humming birds, raccoons and chipmunks... More

This was our first time skiing here. We didn't stay overnight because we wanted to eat dinner somewhere and the restaurant was closed for the season. We brought our 5 year old daughter here. She had a great time, as did we. Lots of great trails at varying levels. Excellent grooming everyday, with tracks. The scenery was pristine; a winter... More

This is a unique and wonderful cross-country skiing vacation center. I have stayed here many times over the past two winters and was just there this past weekend. First, the skiing.
