Perfect for a long summer weekend. Lots of families and not crowded even when all the cabin are booked. Staff is warm and welcoming and treat you like family.

We stayed at Lapland Lake for 3 nights. Everything was perfect. The Children loved it, especially the salamanders fishing ! Our Tupa was very clean and the beds were really of good quality. There was no climatisation in our Tupa, but that was really not needed, the Tupa was always very cool. Very nice to be able to make your...

We stayed at Lapland for a weekend last month and really enjoyed our stay. Our tupa was 2 BR, just perfect for my husband, son and me. The bedrooms were small but the living room and enclosed porch were good-sized and the kitchen was very well stocked and immaculate. The grounds are beautiful and the lake/beach area pristine. We really...

laplandlake, Owner at Lapland Lake Nordic Vacation Center, responded to this review

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and plan to return! The time period from mid April until mid May is generally a quiet one for us, and our occupancy is not as high as other times of the year. As such, your tupa should have been well-aired prior to your arrival, and we will make sure this is...

We have skied at Lapland Lake many times over the past 15 years and have rented tupas (cabins) there several times. There's really nothing better than skiing right out the door of your tupa, and the trails at Lapland are wonderfully groomed and maintained, with a variety of levels from novice to advanced intermediate. There are wood stoves in each...

We had a wonderful stay at Lapland! Twelve of us stayed in two cabins. It was a great retreat from the real world. The cabins are cozy - nice and toasty if you use the woodstove. The kitchen had everything we needed. Nine of us took the Intro to Slide and Glide with Susan and she was a wonderful teacher....

Lapland Lake is my favorite x-country skiing mini-vacation. The trails are beautiful, rental gear is in good condition and the owners are so nice. I always feel relaxed when I visit - even if it's just for a short weekend. It's worth the 4 hour drive from Brooklyn!

We've been going to this place for 13 years, and there is nothing quite like it. The owners go out of their way to make you feel welcome, and it seems that the entire staff is happy to be there. This time, we were lucky enough to stay in one of their Tupas, which is a great deal on a...
